Quoted from west6926:

Finally made it to Portal tonight

reach portal OR finish portal ? (as 154 is not that much)

#6252 4 years ago

Just reached it. For me that's a major accomplishment. At my skill level I doubt I'll ever complete portal unless I take the glass off

#6253 4 years ago

ok, cool anyway of course, and congrats

as i really think that not 10 guys on earth did fully completed it, a more than very hard task for sure

i've had it ready once! Never started it...

I like hitting the SOS with Double Scoring though - that's the peak of my current skills.

#6255 4 years ago

I've started portal twice, always at lunch time after a sandwich when no one else is in the house, then I erased my scores when I updated my code with new music

Top was 160,000,000
Not as good as most here, but was pretty good for my level

#6256 4 years ago

Hey guys! I'll be in the club next week.
I just wanted to ask something real quick.
As many of you know most stern titles lacks the JACKPOT! call outs, I myself is a real sucker for jackpot and super jackpot call outs, they make you feel that you're really accomplishing something.
I just thought to myself, I wonder if it would be possible to ad a jackpot call out using pinball browser? I don't know much about how pinball browser works but I wouldn't be surprised if that's not possible due to there's no pre programmed call out at all during a jackpot. Anyone know if this would be possible? As a jackpot sample I guess you could use the female voice and simulate the "robotic" voice effect.

Anyway, just a thought.

Me too, well almost -> one shot away from lighting Portal (needed the Flynn lamp lit) and drained. 2 yrs and never have gotten Portal lit even once.

Congrats on joining the Club!!!.....you will hear female jackpot call outs in the game....TRON just does it cooler than most....

#6259 4 years ago

Remember when Stern used to sell games at Best Buy? I found a Tron on free play at one location that had so much dirt and crud on the playfield. The whole machine wasn't leveled properly and was tilted on one side. It was the dirtiest Tron I've ever seen. Wish I had taken pictures.

Right then and there I was tempted to bribe the store manager or something but I knew that it was gonna be unlikely. That would've been a cool opportunity to take it home and learn how to tear down a game, clean it up, and install some mods. Plus it was sad to see such a great game in poor shape. Hope get one down the line!

Oh yeah... and Tron is a beautiful, awesome game. Especially if you mod your Pro to be like the LE.

For our new members, "Members Only" is a euphemism for "fans only".

You do not have to own a Tron to participate in this thread. But negative posts will earn a quick ejection.

This thread is for people to share in the greatness that is Tron. If you hate the game or have problems with it, then do not post those complaints in this thread.

This thread is all about the love of Tron.

Only a wanna be club member but fortunately a local place (Pinball Gallery) got a Tron so I've been giving it lots of love. Had a couple good games today. One ended in heart break. Portal lit, immediately drain left. Game over.

Shook it off and after cleansing the pallet with a couple games on Stars and MET gave it another go. The day was mine. Got to Portal. Was only a couple shots shy of completing it. Ended up completing a couple more modes after as well. Regained the GC!

Such a fun game. I should probably just join the club already.

So I got my Tron today, and I'm tweaking it out.

A question for anybody who has apron flashers wired up in a modded Pro: The black and red wires coming from my flashers were detached from whatever they were connected to at some point during transit or before. What do you guys have your apron flashers wired up to? The back panel flashers? (It's a pretty long wire, so I'm thinking it was something in the back).

Thanks for any help.

And yes...the subwoofer makes a HUGE difference on this game - took it off ACDC and put it on Tron. Much better there!

Finally! Welcome officially!!!

Can't help on the flashers right away, but I am super stoked to hear of your adventures on the grid

#6274 4 years ago

I bought a harness kit from a fellow Pinsider--can't recall who at the moment--to hook up my flashers. Worked perfectly. This thread should help you figure it out:

Exactly the modding I need to do this weekend. You got the blue/orange button combo, right? Do you like it? Not sure if I'll be a fan of the orange side...

I just went with the blue and like it just fine but that orange would have been cool i think

The lit buttons or the machine? Quite sure someone will take the machine from you if priced fair....just list it....

Guys I need HELP: My yellow hallmark lightcycle started flashing a few days ago. Blue is staying lit solid. Any tips to make it stop flashing or should I just embrace it?

Lightcycle setups vary so widely. I assume both lightcycles are wired to the same connector, in which case it is likely something in the lightcycle. Things to check:
1) I assume someone soldered wires to the battery terminals. Perhaps this came loose.
2) I assume someone soldered or otherwise glued the power button (the disc on the back of the rider). Perhaps this came loose. Press down hard on the button and see if the flickering goes away.

Good tips, I'll check those out. Power button seems like the most likely suspect...

If that is the culprit, I HIGHLY recommend soldering the connections (bypassing the switch)......had the glue/ epoxy route on mine when I bought it......nightmare city!!!!!

Yes, the monitor was overhauled and the board was bullet proofed about 3 years ago, not had a problem after all that, but it is a color vector, so I don't expect it to be perfect forever... I have the multi-tempest chip installed, as well as the HV Chip. I really need to buy an extra working PCB just incase mine drops out of commission.

I wish tempest had a cameo in the world of Tron, it seems the perfect game to add in to the Tron world
