Quoted from jp335i:

Hey guys --- I recently sold my TRON (to fund SWLE) but I have some extra goodies if anyone is interested shoot me a message.
1. Brand New Playfield Protector from https://playfield-protectors.com/
2. Brand New replacement spinning Disc motor.
3. Brand New set of Blue and Yellow Hallmark Light Cycles for Light Cycle Mod.

Sell that SWLE and get your TRON back

I'd sell my Tron before I'd sell my SW.

(Good thing I'm not selling either!)

I hear ya .... I LOVED TRON, it was my grail and I had so much fun modding it but I did not enjoy playing it for some reason. It was a beautiful HUO machine and I'm blessed to have owned it but I enjoy SW so much more.

#7304 1 year ago

Thanks. I know in the game settings there’s disable plunge post and disable orbit post. What’s the difference? And should I just disable both of them?

Getting lots of pms letting me know the 1st and 2nd batches of the discs have arrived, looking at a handful of the tracking numbers it looks as if they should have all arrived by now, I did take insurance out separately upon shipping so any problems guys pm!

I have also had a lot of new people pm asking about discs, I don't have any currently BUT I will do a bulk order again for people if there is enough interest, however I will require payment up front this time, sorry but I don't really want to order several dozen discs and then have half those orders either cancel or give me the good old Stern radio silence leaving me with a shit load of stock brought in good faith.

Hope that's okay and understandable if anyone is interested or wants a clear disc please feel free to pm, ideally give me your address so I can send you a shipping cost.

I can vouch that Jon represents everything that is good about pinball. Communication was above and beyond for someone just basically doing a “favor” for us Pinsiders in the US. it’s beyond me why someone would commit to buying and then back out when it came time to pay up. I don’t blame you Jon for doing this with prepay for the second go around.

Offer still stands that if I can ever return the favor from a US point of view, don’t hesitate to ask. Or if you ever get to this side of the pond at a show I’m attending (ReplayFX, TPF), the first beer or three are on me!!

Ok, now that we have that all settled lets get ourselves back to the grid. Our fearless leader has passed thru the portal and may never return but our love and allegiance to Tron remains strong. Libations for everyone.

CF was chased off by a Pinside newbie loudmouth. Coincidentally, that guy has basically left the forum also when he got into some heat for a few of his postings.

Well that sucks! I wondered why he'd gone inactive. He's a guy fairly local to me I'd enjoyed chatting with on here.

Come back, CF, you're our only hope. (Yeah, yeah...SW reference in a Tron thread. My bad.)

Tron lives on, strong as ever....Corey fine, just burnt out on the bs side of Pinside.....just wish he would come back long enough to change the thread title back to “Lamp” as opposed to “ Lightning Kitty”....

Burnt out from Pinside BS?!? Aren't we all? I about hit my limit the other night but talked myself into believing the good outweighs the bad.

Maybe if we all send him a lamp in tribute, he'll come back.

The word on the street is that CF's too busy for Pinside due to his consultant gig with Stern in developing TRON VE.

He had stated he bought all the TronVE’s shortly before his departure from Pinside. You could be onto something!!!.....funny stuff......

That's too bad. He had little tolerance for B.S. and I loved that. He was kind of the Don Quixote of Pinside fighting off evil. Without guys like Centerflank standing up to the B.S that can often overtake this site, it and the people pushing will grow stronger. That's a difficult cross to bear, but I hope he comes back. This site needs him.

got my Tron saturday. sea of simulation tonight .

more importantly, all 4 of my red disc flashers are out. anyone see that before?

Quoted from weaverj:

Congrats!!!....should be (2x) Red and (2x) Blue under the disc....

#7343 1 year ago

SOLD:
BLUE-3 unused sets
CLEAR-6 unused sets
UNSOLD:
CLEAR-1 set where outer disc is stuck to the inside of a Ziploc baggie (was testing it out as a light diffuser on the underside of a pop bumper cap--didn't work out, so removed--it's seen no ball action, & if you're a wiz at adhesive, you can probably stick it down just fine) [will definitely sell-cheap!]
CLEAR-1 just inner discs unused [will definitely sell--cheap!]
If you're signing up with J85M for his 2nd batch of ring rubbers shipped from England, I don't want to step on his toes, so we'd appreciate it if you don't cancel any commitment with J85M on account of this offer being more attractive.
Thanks,

Quoted from jasonbar:

[I was just writing an "I'll take one from J85M if he's got excess inventory that he wants to unload...but then I remembered...]
I went a little overboard on buying Tron mod stuff (haven't we all?) in back in 2014...and every year since then...
I bought 10 sets of clear discs & 6 sets of blue discs from our German friends at Pinball Center. Shipping to the US was only 10 euros per package back in the good old days.
I wasn't sure which color I'd go with, & I was also getting lots of spares to augment the pops' LED rings with diffusers:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/official-tron-lovefest-thread-i-love-it-more-than-lamp/page/59#post-2172186
I have these left in inventory:
CLEAR
6 unused sets
2 just inner discs unused
1 just outer disc already stuck to the inside of a Ziploc baggie-it can probably be peeled out, cleaned gently, re-adhesived, & installed.
BLUE
3 unused sets
After J85M unloads the rest of his inventory, hit me up for a sale. I'm in California. I won't sell until he's gotten buyers for all of his inventory, considering what he's been through.
I figure I probably want to keep 1-2 of the clear sets for spares, as the one that I installed is peeling up a bit at the edges...though it's been peeling up for a long long time now & is still playing nicely (well, not nicely, considering this is an evil mod). All the rest should be up for grabs.
Thanks,
-Jason

Added 18 months ago: Update 2017-11-21:
All of my spare clear disc rubbers are sold, EXCEPT for 1 unused inner disc piece.
$7 shipped to USA.
Thanks,

#7346 1 year ago

i doubt i'd have two transistors out, so it could just be a cut in the power line.

i did notice something else. i have the arcade mod, and it looks like the arcade flasher is hooked up to the blue domed one at the end of the ramp there. the lower right flasher doesn't flash anything in test. there is one physically in the arcade, but it doesn't flash. actually, kind of looks like a regular led wedge.

how is the arcade supposed to be hooked up with the various flasher circuits in that area?

The arcade mod is supposed to be hooked up to the arcade flasher. Do any of your flashers work? Sounds like you have a lot of flashers not working.

#7348 1 year ago

the ramp flasher flashing for the arcade flasher is just the connector underneath the playfield. if i switch those back, it'll fix that issue. i'm thinking it's just a regular low-volt led in the wedge socket in the arcade. probably just wore out with the high-volt flasher power. i'll tear it apart and see what i come up with. thanks for the quick help, guys.

#7349 1 year ago

Weird problem on my LE just appeared...Orbit post normally goes up, then back down when you hold the left flipper down at ball launch....

Now , post goes up, but goes down by itself after about 5 seconds. If I hold left flipper button down, post stays down. If I don’t, it comes back up after the ball hits the first switch upon launch.

Did a brief look around last night, flipper switch seems fine.....any ideas? Guess edge test next to see what is letting go? Very strange.....thx for the help, if you’ve seen this before....mark

#7350 1 year ago

speaking of that post, what is the reason it pops up sometimes when i shoot through the pops to the rear orbit? i figure/hope that's part of gameplay.

arcade/lower right ramp flashers fixed. switch the connectors underneath, then installed an actual flasher bulb in the arcade. both work as they should; sweet! gotta look at those disc flashers next.

also, got my pinnovator board today to hook up Tron to my psw10. just finished the install. uh, yeaaah; bass is good .
