Quoted from knockerlover:

The gem shot is easier for me now that I try to reach it from the right flipper off the TRON stand-ups on the pro. Not sure how feasible this is on the LE, with the drops.

Sadly not the case on the LE as they are drops....I think the "ease" of the gem shot will go down as one of the most debatable discussions in Tronland. I've seen posts where players actually sold the machine due to the frustration caused by this shot.

One of the many reasons this is still one of the most coveted games in our community. You're just so sure it's a straight forward " light me up" machine, then it quickly beats the hell out of you in a variety of ways....all worth it when the " magic game" arrives, and she lets you in.....love this machine.....

Tempting, but I think I'll have to pass on your Tron Labnip, there's just too many Tron LEs that used to be NIB on the market now, however I'd love a little of whatever your smoking LOL

Does anyone have a link to download the Pinball Browser sound update ROM file like the one retro_p shared a year ago? I bought my Pro NIB and it hasn't been getting any love lately, I'd like to try a music refresh to see if I can get back into this game. Or if someone has a newer .bin file with "must have" sounds and music, please PM me. Thanks.

#6664 2 years ago

I would love the link too. Just upgraded speakers to Flipper Fidelity.

#6665 2 years ago

Thanks flynnsbit, much appreciated! If anyone has the .bin file that retro_p compiled, I'd really like to load and try that mix out too.

#6666 2 years ago

Can anyone post the best size for titan clear slings on this machine? I may have put 2-1/2 in but constantly jumping outside the arm. Is 2" correct? That's what my gut tells me....just wondering...this is the only game that keeps " jumping" the arm...thanks

I'm having the same problem. Really annoying.

#6671 2 years ago

Just checked....did put 2-1/2 in...swapped to 2", work fine but " feel" a bit tight....do they make 2-1/4"? Anyone else have short life out of the 2"? Thanks...mark

#6672 2 years ago

Who doesn't love the start sequence sound for LCMB? I couldn't get enough of it, so I took my new sound caller board that is driven by Total Lightshow, and made the recognizer target bank call that start sound, but only during LCMB. That target bank just sits there like a goon during LCMB, so now it does something useful. Headphones with good bass a must, the subwoofer is pumping here.

Same problem here. I had 2" on initially and they broke so they sent me the 2-1/2". Now they are always getting unseated. Especially on the left sling as the right hardly ever has it happen. The only good news is that the rubber hasn't broken like the 2".

2-1/4" would be a good compromise.

Cool idea!

#6675 2 years ago

I also put it on ball launch. It primes when the shooterlane is depressed, then plays the sound call as the shooterlane switch is released. Unbelievable in MBs! You just get bombarded by it.

#6676 2 years ago

Total Lightshow does Quorra. Detail of QMB.

#6677 2 years ago

That total lightshow is spectacular. I kinda wished I would not of watched it because now I want it. There is never an end to upgrading Tron. And thats ok. Adding the sound of LCMB startup on the target bank and ball launch was ingenious.

#6678 2 years ago

FINALLY!

I knew it'd be a good game when I finished LC Multiball on the first ball. Never done that and for me, it's harder than completing Gem.

Only SOS mode I needed to complete were 3 shorts on Identity Disc multiball. 3 shots. Done.

Portal lit. Did not drain, but only scored 3,300,000 in Portal which is

« Spoiler! Click to reveal. 4 ball mulitball. "Complete all shots for super jackpot" »

Big time rush.

Well, a rough night in Tronland...pretty cool when it exploded, though...

Came across this cleaning my shop.

Is it a Tron mod? Does anyone want it?

The fluorescent tube went out in the backbox on my Tron today. Anyone have an LED backbox kit they recommend? Alternatively, anyone using an LED tube light as a replacement?

Looks like power dist for mods, maybe special lighting... I have an LE, and there's a high possibility that it could be for a pro model only, if there's no takers and you're just trying to unload it to someone who will try and put it to good use, I'll take it. I'd sure like to know what it's supposed to be used for

Now that is what I call a "top night"!

#6684 2 years ago

Anyone have an extra shaker motor (or one they are not gonna use)? Thinking about adding one to my Pro...

#6685 2 years ago

Here is a run through of the complete Total Lightshow Tron code, all the way up to and including SOS. Missing from the demo but in the code are, outlane colour fade effect (orange left, blue right) and extra ball orange left ramp sync with extra ball insert.

#6686 2 years ago

You've seen TRON the roller coaster... now I give you "TRON the Glowing, UV-reactive pie"!

Looks great!!! I'm behind, but is this using Eli's fiber kit for pros only? Or does it integrate with LE's ( doubt it) doesn't look leds from video....

This is all new gear unrelated to the Pinbits Eli kit. Same driver board as the Metallica kit. Pro only.

#6690 2 years ago

That's ok... the LE can still use the pinduino... but you gotta remove your gi, which will be daunting

#6691 2 years ago

Anyone that needs a set of light cycles or the arcade mod I've got both for sale in the marketplace.

LE forever once you got one. The show on this is better than the LE, but the LE stays if one has to go.

Finally in the club

Looks like I just need to put a chrome shooter rod in, slap on some clear rubber... and I'll be good to go!

The wait for delivery may literally kill me. Will check back in a few weeks when she gets here, which is about how long it should take me to read this entire thread.

Anyways, HI

Labnip that looks great!

What kind of wire did you use to support the ships? Please take a pic from the side so I can see how you attached them!

Thanks!

CF better pop back in and update the title of this thread. I still love Tron more than Lightning Kitty but I have pounded that pussy 9 lives over. Time for some strange. I mean change.
