Quoted from MK6PIN:

Think Flank had some bare metal and black sets sourced awhile back for guys on the thread. These were just laser cut, so you would have to add the EL paper yourself (look back a few pages). Gio @ pinball refinery may still offer in chrome w the paper included (that's where mine came from... changed the paper out as it dims over time).
Replacing just the ramps and hinges (without EL lighting) is pretty straightforward. Adding the paper? another story, and can be quite the pita to do it right.
If you are going to use bare metal and do the whole thing, prepare to invest a good bit of time and $$$, regardless.

thanks man. I don't know what EL paper is. I also would only be interested in the chrome versions. checked refinery's site and they are not on it. I will give them a call

#5902 3 years ago

INCOMING!

I'm in agreement with another great member of the community to pickup an LE in a cpl wks. It has a chance to dethrone my fully done-up BSM and TWDLE as "nicest" in my collection. Accumulating upgrades now. Target finish date mid June.

This was a fringe game for me for all 3 yrs or so that I've been in pinball and I eventually simply couldn't resist even with the astronomical pricing.

Centerflank was trying to get a group in on new laser cut tron rails. PM him about it. It was a page or 2 back he mentioned it.

Quoted from centerflank:

TRON is by far the best subwoofer add on game, Ive played quite a few with woofers and nothing has come close.....

That's DAFT PUNK for ya! Best...music...evar!

Got a sub/soundbar on mine. Love it!

#5907 3 years ago

Dude...wtf! I just finished a few rounds of Tron and decided to check on pinside top 100. Tron at 25! "SHAME... SHAME..." That top 100 sucks BIG TIME!

Another round of rails is looking like a no go, I'll update those that Ive talked to if it changes.

Haven't been to the clubhouse for a while. Nice to see a bunch of new members. Nothing to report. Tron rules. I'm thinking of laser cut rails that read like this.. TRONLEgacy.. or not.
Carry on.

#5911 3 years ago

Hey flank. after looking closer at the rails and hinges I am going to pass. I thought I might be able to do something cool there but it would require too much modification. reading your last post its all probably a moot point anyway. installed the under cab flashers and a couple of spots on the toys on the back (cant find the blue hallmark cycle) that are sitting on the new glowing edge plastics. Looks pretty good. today the (next) shaker and speaker light kits arrive. Just ordered the anti dmd glare kit from comet too. Next decision is replacing the orange dmd. i've seen the color but 400 is too much. anyone here have the xpin in white? what do you think?

I have a new in the box Tron ramp for sale, bought from Marco for $150,

$110 shipped
(this is the left side main ramp, that feeds the right inlane)

Dude, if you have a Tron then you're already in for thousands. Why would you cut yourself short over $400 + shipping? The ColorDMD looks awesome man. Zero regrets here. In fact, all of my machines (Tron, Johnny, Simpsons) have ColorDMD and honestly the worst thing you have to worry about is becoming addicted to ColorDMD. Games without color just lose something now

Ok 400 is a lot but it will get you a great experience and upgrade to your machine. You can also get a red filter, mine has that and looks great. You just got the machine and are anxious to alter things but just play it first some time and then decide what to go for. In 6 month the 400 dollar does not seems to be so much?

yup I am gonna sit tight on the display for now. i just added a shaker, speaker lights and under cab flashers. i should save a few mods for later to freshen things up rather than blowing my whole mod-wad right now...

mod veteran here, yet Tron noob. when I get my LE, does it have a stock shaker, if not does it already include wiring for one?

#5919 3 years ago

No shaker but everything's in place for it. Be sure to have a powered sub onhand

#5921 3 years ago

Where's the best source for broken plastics? Noticed today ( while cleaning the play-field) that I've got a broken one up at the top right corner, behind orbit . I blame it on the clear disc, but more likely happened when I lifted the playfield without taking the balls out ( yes, a lazy habit that I have on occasion)...

#5922 3 years ago

Whoever brought Tron to PinaGoGo, THANK YOU. Wish the disk was functioning on Sunday, but thank you for its presence among all those other things that were set up in the room. IMG_00004299_(resized).jpg

I have had mine for two years with the brick, did these come in solid black?

Nice Pop Bumbers on the playfield

#5927 3 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

When did the brick sticker start being put on?

At first I was eluded to the thought of the lit up Flynn's sign because there was already a Flynn's sign on the playfield plastic, but when I spotted the replacement plastic with Space Paranoids on it, I reconsidered.
Maybe the first set of Flynn's signs didn't come with brick or replacement plastic?

TRON Run/r Original Soundtrack to be released on May 31

The TRON Run/r soundtrack, composed by Giorgio Moroder and co-composed by Raney Shockne, is getting a release date of May 31st.
In a statement by Christopher Nicholls, executive producer, he says "TRON spans several decades of really innovative music, whether it's Wendy Carlos in the first film or Daft Punk. So we wanted an artist who could really span those generations in a legitimate way. If you go back to the sound of original electro disco in the '70s, Giorgio is right at the heart of it. He's been pushing electronic music his whole career. We wanted to nod to the first film as well as the later incarnations of the series."

TRON Run/r Original Soundtrack track list:

01. RUN PROGRAM – Giorgio Moroder and Raney Shockne
02. RUN PROGRAM (BIBIO REMIX) - Giorgio Moroder and Raney Shockne

08. 611 TIME OUT (AUTECHRE REMIX) – Giorgio Moroder and Raney Shockne
09. DECRYPTED – Giorgio Moroder and Raney Shockne
10. MEMORY STRING – Giorgio Moroder and Raney Shockne

hey guys, easy one here:

Tron LE came with LEDs for inserts from the factory or not ?
how about for GI ?

I'm thinking I need yet another LEDOCD board for the inserts...

GI's are incandescent from the factory but the inserts are the little led boards if I remember correctly.

LEDOCD board doesn't work ( or needed) for the inserts on the LE ( LED boards factory installed)....Flank is correct......

What do you guys think i should do for my pinball life flipper rubber colors ? I was thinking black flipper bats with blue/orange and yellow for top left ? I also got lasseriffic flipper toppers too. Right now i have orange and yellow flipper rubbers.

a word of caution from one man's experience. I had gold aftermarket flipper bats on my iron man. they never fit quite right, or felt quite right. they weren't firmly into place so I couldn't get consistent dead bounces, etc. I eventually took them off and compared them to the yellow stock, the shaft and flippers themselves were NOTICEABLY smaller and thus allowed vibration while also making the game harder for drains down the middle. Just what IM needed right? just saying- check for size comparison against the stock sterns anytime you are going to install non stock flipper bats. I of course stuck with the stock bats...and am now scarred ever since, terrified to try aftermarket bats.

again, one man's story. I mod everything as much as possible but never if it impacts gameplay...

Completely agree on the bats...I've had bad luck, as well...as far as the rubber, I like Titan colors, and have been avoiding black totally, but that's just me....

I think I've asked this before but does anyone know a source for the "-09" plastic on Tron? Mine cracked so I need a new one and don't really wanna buy a whole extra plastic set if I can avoid it. PM me if you have an extra or know where to get one!

where do you buy the clear spinning disc rubber? my first one flew off yesterday. I had another in the bag when I bought it but if this is going to continue I need some on hand.

probably old news but i lit up the scoop with a 1.5 inch standoff, blue no-lense led and standard light socket for about 3.50 in parts. Also had an extra 7 led strip in red from comet that I applied to the inside of the motor assy to light up the motorized target cavity. 3.95. shoulda taken pics

Try pinbalcenter.de for the clear disc. Some here swear with 3M adhesive to put on that and lock it thight for 24 hours, that seems to be the recipe.
