you need an led ball now in order to see it lol...

#6009 3 years ago

Looks like I'm going to order a clear disc, I have the blue one installed, and I just don't see the action that the clear one gets.

I do use the blitz one grand wax, and I've always wondered if my pf is just too slick to see insane ball English.

Can anyone else confirm the difference between the German blue and clear disc?

Also, I don't remember. Do I need to remove the disc rubber from the clear plastic to remove the clear plastic disc from the motor? Pics?
Thank you guys

#6010 3 years ago

That looks great! Question is, how do the flippers flip? Are they as strong as the original ones. I had some cheap copies in my machine but that just didn't feel right.

#6011 3 years ago

That looks awesome

They feel pretty normal like the last bats that were in.

I put the clear super bands on which are super tight so we will see if they break

#6014 3 years ago

Did you order those flipper bats in germany you said? Where if I may ask?
And the lighted leg protectors? Also real nice on the Tron!

You should see his lighted lederhosen he got from germany. They'll knock das boots off.

Two rule questions:

1) Is there any time when Gem switch hits do not count (excluding SOS when you've already completed her)

2) After you start Quorra Multiball and add both balls by hitting the recognizer 6 times, the recognizer lowers and spinning disc becomes accessible. Are subsequent hits to the disc counted towards disc MB progress? Are they counted at all? it seems they are not...

Absolutely loving this game and have been inches away from Portal several times. Can't ever get both Quorra and Lightcycle completed in same game!

1. no... just a bad contact cause ball is too fast (happend on mine too)
2. no, giving only small points in that case

I like the DMD reflector "cover" plastic with the Encom logo. Where did you find the Encom logo or how did you label it?

I recently took out the incandescents on my Tron LE GI. Replaced them with frosted cool whites. Pin is much brighter but the El wiring is washed out now. Even in a dark room, the El wiring doesn't seem as vibrant as before.

I have blues and yellows in the inlanes/slings.

I personally don't really like making pins totally blue. What's the best way to brighten up the pin without washing out the EL wiring?

Not a great picture. But before and after

I'm not sure which LED you used. I also went through that error whereby I used high quality 2 SMD frosted bulbs, which washed out the Eli lights. The solution I found was to use the cheapest white LED I could find. The link below worked for me. I picked frosted whites, which turned out to have a slightly blue tint. A dim bluish LED would normally be considered low quality but is a perfect fit for Tron.

Yep, these are the ones I've used.
Do you have a picture of video of what your tron looks like nosro?

#6032 3 years ago

Thought it would be fitting to put feelers out here for our next small run of chrome aprons for Tron. They will be offered as bare chrome for le owners and full replacement interactive for pro owners. Price will be in line with the acdc and iron man aprons i make. Simply contact me at hookedonpinball@outlook.com for info and check out the vids of aprons at youtube hooked198.

#6036 3 years ago

I've always been curious what the difference is in the version of the arcade mods. I have the arcade mod but have no idea what version it is since I bought my Pro with it already installed by previous owner.
What is the difference between versions?

#6037 3 years ago

After initial consumer testing the name and logo went back to the drawing board for some more changes...

Have an un-installed arcade mod if anyone is looking. PM me

#6045 3 years ago
Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

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!

I could scan mine with a scanner, if you would like to remake your own.

#6046 3 years ago

Swapped in all new flipper assemblies, mechs, coils--all of it. The game wasn't fast enough. Now it's a speed demon for me.

#6047 3 years ago

Just finished ramp Eli lights, RGB board and under cabinet lights. I love me some Tron.
