That's awesome! One super dad for sure! I'd like to think he would have wanted you to have a TWD premium

GB For SURE that was our jam!

It definitely looks quite awesome, hope the gameplay matches it.

I lasted 3 months without TWD before I had to buy another one

#5559 3 years ago

My buddy pinball_erie has a Pro.

I am waiting for him to trade it out. He has had it for a while and he and I trade a lot.

I'm thinking about swapping out the shooter housing with a classic beehive to better match my Devo pop caps. Maybe lit from the backside. Too much or too magnificent?

Too white. Might work if you made it blue.

#5565 3 years ago

If there's one thing we can do on the grid, it's make stuff blue

#5567 3 years ago

so my cointaker LEDs came in and they look good except for the yellows by the left sling (the CLU portion of the bottom half). They look orange to me (even without any plastics above it). I tried comet before and their yellow looked orange too. Question is for the guys with very yellow LEDs to match the plastics - where did you buy them and what kind?

Yellows led's always look orange to me....I always use sunlight or cool white for lighting yellow inserts...on plastics ( especially TRON) orange rules anyway ( w blue of course)...I mix the cool whites w blue, the whites w orange on the other side....good luck!!!

#5569 3 years ago

I have a thing about yellow, so I prefer orange anyway. With that said, until now I always thought the Clu colors were orange!

Yeah - I have that look right now too. Blue look sick. The orange though I really want true yellow. I see a number of guys that achieved this and I have been unsuccessful. If anyone knows what to buy, lmk. Otherwise, I'll just continue with my orange.

Seems like the law love it more than lamp too. I'm sure they are just completing their security checks.

#5574 3 years ago

So I'm playing today and just had a feeling before I started I was gonna get to Portal. I'm marching along and hitting some lucky shots and start making a lot of lights solid going up the ladder. I keep going and get them all solid except one, and I'm on the last ball. The most unlikely mode I need to finish is flashing--Find Flynn. What are the odds of that? I (finally) hit it and go to Portal with the bonus, did just OK in Portal, got back to SOS again and tanked. I was waffling, but now I really do love TRON more than Lightning Kitty...

#5575 3 years ago

You guys with the clear disc installed i must say that thing is insane .i played that pro at TPF and never seen anything like it .it acted like a rocket lancher . One hit on the disc the ball jumps out on playfield and backspin propells it backward on top of reconizer and out of play just nuts

A ball ended up on stuck by the recognizer at least 10x over the weekend and I think the German clear disk has a lot to do with it.
I am pleasantly surprised at how much grip the clear disk has even after all those plays at TPF.

Now that's she's home I think its time for some more mods.
Just ordered a "Herg" Tron RGB board and I have some new ideas on ways to use it.

What does the RGB board all do again? I have one, wanted to install last week but realized I'm low on power ports. Just waiting on a wire jumper to power up the 8 way......

That looks so nice I just have one big homemade splitter in mine.
Guess I should of bought a PIG2 too late now. I could always use a raspberry pi to do the same thing but that would require more work on my part....na that will never happen

So my understanding is the RGB board will let you hook up other LED strips to the ramps RGB controller.
I am going to connect mine to the speakers, topper and undercab at first. I have some laser cut rails and hinges I have never installed and I am thinking about trying out LED strips with a diffusers behind the cutouts to see how it looks. Just need to get off my ass and get them powercoated I have only been talking about getting them powered for about 2 years now.

sounds cool.....I think you migh squeak it in behind the hinges, but those rails are gonna be a bitch to fit....good luck

Thanks, its worth a try. If some one knows where I can get some extra thin RGB strips please let me know.

It's too bad someone doesn't make a liquid that hardens then you could energize ( maybe someone does)....I always thought that would be sick..."custom molded lighting " could kill in our mod world...

Its going to require something special for sure.
Most LED strips the lights are too far apart.

I need thin and high density.

#5591 3 years ago

Has anyone installed the blue disc and the clear disc to see the difference?

So far my blue one will hold the ball for a bit, then throw it out, yes it goes backspin crazy, but not as wildly as the clear sounds... Or do I keep my playfield waxed a little too good?
