Quoted from Erik:

I have the light up protectors for the back legs but the power connector is too short so, either find an extension for it or just use on another game. Blue would be great for GOT.......

OUTSTANDING! Does it go to other colors?

Quoted from PaulCoff:

No, everything I bought is always blue

#5955 3 years ago

damn Flank I like my chrome shooter rod handle, but that lighted blue one is outstanding!

By itself it would not be as cool but with the other lights on legs and buttons it is freaking amazing!

I need a drooling emoji...

#5956 3 years ago

Im a fan of the lit shooter, didnt think I would be, but it is pretty bright really..

Hi my name is Bryan, I've been Tron free for one day now.

I sold my pimped out Tron yesterday and regret it already. Here's to hoping for the VE later, one of my favorites, can't keep them all unfortunately.

Lets not talk about how much I could've reduced my mortgage principal or how many hours I had to work- let's just celebrate THE SON OF OUR MAAKKEERR.

here it is in the midst of its single and final ownership transition:

Welcome to the family! An LE to boot! Very nice. You won't regret the purchase for sure.

I want to get my hands all over Gem and Quorra and that's about as likely as you playing all three of those anytime soon!

But at least your dream will come true (eventually)!

#5963 3 years ago

hmm- are there other remixes out there besides retro_p and nosro?

It has End Of Line for Gem hurry up. It has "Outlands" for disc multi ball restart. It has "Disc Wars" for CLU mode. It has "Son Of Flynn" for light cycle multiball. It keeps Quorra stock music for Quorra multiball.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?
If not, I will be forced to make it myself.

Excellent further enhancement to your deadly machine!!!.....been at Soccerland w my Son this weekend ( came in second), or I would have seen and posted earlier....I'm starting to like the look of those LED leg protectors...( oh nooooo).....

I just put in an order for 4 more sets

Edit-----No video, didn't get to finish everything, still need that last flipper bat from Germany. I need another frigging power splitter too. Ha!

Just a note on that Cointaker light up Shooter rod.....the kit I was sent was missing the supposed sleeve one needs to convert the Stern shooter housing. Pretty disappointed in that. Made for more work, I had a spare Gold B/W housing that I sanded down and sprayed black.

It does look really nice though and seems well constructed.

not to pile on cointaker but I have only gotten a few things from them recently and every kit etc there was something wrong. bad shaker motor, no directions on under cabinet lighting, no cycles in my speaker light kit (back order, not really their fault). I think this is pretty consistent with a bunch of aftermarket stuff in this hobby but this stuff is all junk. all that being said the folks at cointaker were really nice which means I will buy from them again.

So the only thing I didnt like about the kit was the directions dont really outline how to use the stern housing, you have to remove the brass bushings on each side, which is easiest using a drill bit, just larger than the opening and slowly backing it out.. there just wasnt much to help me with that.. but I got it.. the dicey thing for me is I just got my housing back from chrome and had to be careful..all good tho

#5973 3 years ago

I love my tron glad i got it it was my holy grail Anyone have tron fynn sign mod for sale ?

Yep, directions were iffy, luckily MK6pin gave me some help.

I just didn't want to blow out the LED which is probably easy to do.

Found it, man pinside is an awesome community. When I gradually fell in love with this game, it had everything to do with this custom mix, it's more "movie faithful" than straight up remixed. I believe the only changes vs stock are: DISC WARS for CLU mode, END OF LINE for GEM HRYUP, SON OF FLYNN for LC multiball, ??? for ZUSE FS MODE.

PM me if interested, you won't regret.

#5980 3 years ago

I'm trying to find the specs on the pictured posts for Tron. I'm planning on replacing them with clear rubber posts in the 1 1/16" standard size. However, 2 of the posts entering the right ramp appear "fatter" than the standard version.
Also, the posts next to the "S" Zeus target have 2 stacked post sleeves so I'm wondering if these should be rubber and if so, what size(s) to use to replace them.

A first note, I think that all four on the ramp there were all the same size, and were that harder plastic version of a sleeve. That lower, fatter one looks to have been replaced with a standard rubber. Mine was NIB, but that was already 6 months ago, and I don't have a 6 month memory.

So, I replaced all of the above with Super Bands Super Posts at 1-1/6" high. The S target ones, though, I'm not happy with how that worked out. I tried cutting down some of my Posts to fit, but they're so rubbery that they eventually end up backing out the screw that hold down the plastic. As I love the SB Posts, I'm going to keep the lower set. Then get some metal standoffs that are the appropriate height to screw in on top of the lower posts, but accept the philips screws to secure the plastic. I think I'll like the look with the standoffs fine, I like the way the SB Posts play, and the screws won't go backing out on me.

Tron blows. I picked my avatar because it looks cool. I bought a Tron LE cuz it looks cool. That's where it ends.

Wow a Rob T sighting!!! I personally haven't seen you post in a long time. Good to see you around!!

I relocate plaques to my coin door because I get my speaker panels custom painted, and because I think it looks cool there.

here's the link to the coin insert papers. I had to remove the inserts from machine to be able to fight with the e clips. Make sure you have a 3/16" nut driver and make sure you understand that the nuts/screws holding the coin insert can be shorter than those holding the coin mechs.

I found out the hard way, by putting a coin mech screw through the front of one my coin insert housings.

don't know if you're being sarcastic to be honest...
I actually don't like it and will remove it to replace with a black one eventually.

Clear rubber on the left and blue rubber on the right. Seeing which one I like better.

German technology. Same kit Centerflank got for his game. Really cool when you set it to fade to different colors all the time.

Just got a personal best and got to SOS at work yesterday on our TRON during a playtest of all things. It had all/only Powerballs which made it hella fast and fun.

I have dreams of making a "Jeff Bridges Wall" in my future home arcade. Iron Man, TRON and The Big Lebowski.

#6000 3 years ago

You can crush the gem shot with power balls. I need to get one.
