Quoted from Digduglus:

Only mod i need is the lighted tron cycles. Is there someone that mods existing ones?

It's super easy to do if you can even half way solder. If you were local I'd just do it for you.

#9402 44 days ago

Anyone use an LE ramp on a PRO? As these damn ramps as really hard to find. I found an LE left ramp that I'm going to use on my pro. I know it has cut outside for the light wire. I can live with that.

Getting to Portal is why I sold my Tron.

You are still in the Tron thread tho?? #regret

And then you can add the ramp lights as well, win win

I have a ramp lighting kit coming from Professor Pinball so I am looking forward to getting those on

Quoted from Shadrac:

What's your favorite remix for Tron? Retro_p, nosro, or dubstep?
Explain why
Thanks !

Movie Faithful (which I think is "nosro"). It's pretty polished and dubstep wasn't to my taste. I still tweaked it a bit as I preferred the original Quora track and there was another that I swapped out.

Quoted from tomdotcom:

But did you complete all the modes first and have double scoring lit before you entered?

Nope, does that make hitting all the shots a bunch of times more exciting?

Quoted from ZEN:

No regrets. I loved the game for a few months but ours is a one pin household so it was time to move on. I have a little bit of experience modding and fixing the machine so I might just be able to help someone out.

#9410 41 days ago

As awesome as TRON is it’s not a game for a 1 pin collection. In a collection made up of a handful of games TRON is a keeper for sure.

I believe I have the only TRON LE numbered below #50 in Europe with a signed playfield from factory, which I brought knowing I’d never sell it.

#9411 41 days ago
Quoted from AJB4:

Anybody know where I can get an Eli's Ramp lighting kit?

yeah.... ^^^^ What he said. Anyone?

#9412 41 days ago

Just a heads up they have released more of the Tron mini arcade cabinet 3.1 mods. I’ve been on a waiting list for sometime.

Instant 50 million if you go straight to portal before SOS vs instant 100 million if you have double scoring running when you hit the scoop for portal.

Also yes the wizard mode sucks. Like they just threw it on with no thought at all. If they VE the game, maybe they'll update the wizard mode? Not likely though....but one can dream.

Quoted from TimeBandit:

I’m currently trying to put together another batch of ten Tron TLS kits. They may be the last I ever make.
My website’s SSL certificate has expired and I couldn’t frankly be bothered paying it again, so the website may be on its last legs.
When I get the kits together I’ll just sell them here. I have a bunch of enquiries already but there’s room for some more interest.

Hello,
Please put me on the list.
Thanks.

Agree. It's the way you get to Portal that counts.

Getting 50 or 100 million bonus on this kind of game is a massive rush.

Portal itself looks underwhelming.

Tried to get in contact about a TLS kit a while back.
Can I be added to the list as well if it's still possible please?

Thank You,

#9422 35 days ago

What's the difference if any between the two?
I noticed that the one on the right has the Start button in the lower location.
Does that mean one is possibly set up for Tournament play and the other on Normal?

The plunger--sometimes you feel like plunging the original, sometimes you wanna plunge with an after-market item. I do the same thing on my Lebowski's.

Yes, probably the most awesome swatch collection, he has 3 wall clocks and a lit commercial sign

Quoted from underlord:

One of them belongs to my buddies friend, he’s shopping it out for him.

We were trying to figure out the extra button, at first I thought it was volume, but maybe it was the tourney button

The one on the right has the chrome apron, other than that, mostly the same; different Flynn sign mods, different LEDs

If Tron is revisited by Lyman what is needed?

Portal needs to be more dynamic, higher scoring etc but can't think of much else??

Fix the missing 3 TRON call-outs on the Pro model. Double scoring, etc.

What are the dots/lighting effects like for SOS and Portal in the latest code?

Last time I saw those modes I don’t think they had dots just text.

I’d like more emphasis on combos in Tron specially end of line combo having more fanfare.

I've love some kind of loopin' supers style thing on the left ramp. Also, higher scoring on a 3 or 4 way combo, come on that's hard!!

Consummate any set of combos with an End of the Line jackpot and you will be rewarded

My only like to have with Tron would be a better wizard mode. Portal is beyond lame for how good this game is outside of that.

Now i’ve done portal a second time: this time with all modes complete in advance. How do I get double scoring going?

Spell TRON, look at the playfield inserts, you can't miss it. Read rules for all the intracasies of it. How to change which mode is lit...etc.

Are you close to Stern, or is this a personal wish list? Don’t get me wrong, I’d love a new update, although I would lose my custom audio which is miles better than the original!

I’ve reported the lack of TRON call-outs on the Pro several times over the years without response.

Not close at all!

There have been mutterings over the years that Tron would get one more update but I have absolutely no idea if it will happen.
