Hi,
Im looking this TRON: Legacy Daft Punk Translite
Thanks[quoted image]

I'd like to get one of these too. I've been thinking about making my own version.

#9602 65 days ago
Quoted from Sako-TRG:

Thanks for the info:-
Well it looks like I’ll have to look elsewhere.
For some unknown reason, Flipper Fidelity want 154 dollars shipping to UK to put a 79 dollar translite in a tube.
Maybe it sits in the cockpit of a 747 with the Captain - who knows

We unfortunately get the same bullshit treatment here in Australia with some suppliers. But then others are great to deal with and the prices are decent.

Maybe you can look at a freight forwarder? For us here in Australia, we can ship to a central location for Auspost that then sends our consolidated parcel to Australia and the freight is a hell of a lot cheaper.

Either, in my case. Just need a fresh set.

I posted a new tech thread regarding my left sling that got stuck energized.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/tron-legacy-left-sling-stuck-energized#post-5753649

Any assistance greatly appreciated, so I can get my 7yo boy back up and running--Tron keeps him busy during quarantine, giving me a chance to be productive while working at home! :]

Thank you,

If the coil is stock on, can you make sure the switches are not closed. aka the rubber is too tight or the switch has to be adjusted. If the switches are open and the coil is firing and holding, then you have to work your way back up to the board....

Hey Z, I think I bought your stock LE apron off eBay.

Do you have those art/mirror side blades installed yet? Would love to see what it looks like in the game.

Really?

I didn't install the mirror blades yet, this is the last thing that I install on the machine, but I have a few pictures about this, I attach these

#9614 59 days ago

Is that your game? Those mirror blades look different than the ones you had laid out with the other parts a couple pages back? I was thinking of getting those with the T, but was curious how the mirrored ones with the big disc looked installed. Either are nice, but I’m torn about it. Same with the speaker decal you have too. We appear to have the same taste. Definitely looking forward to seeing your game from every angle once you’re done with it.

Seems similar to mine. I can snap some photos for you when I'm home from work this evening if you'd like.

No. That is off my Blackout mod for Star Trek.
Standoffs for the GI Dimmer, extended screws, and a 3pin header for an extra ground.

Well I never used those, found them after I did the install but everything seems to be working just need to program things.

Do I need the additional header John or not?

I figured on and off helps. The lighting throws it off a bit and I wanted to show the actual look.

Quoted from J85M:

The standoffs, screws are to secure the board under the PF. If you rarely move your machines; probably not needed. I don't use them myself.

The additional header would be advisable once you loose your MFG warranty. It's mitigation to "burning" pins like seen on STNG WMS machines. The extra ground would help keep current flows to a minimum. See the install docs for the reason why.

That said; let's take this conversation to PM or a Star Trek thread... as it's off topic in a Tron Love thread.

Greetings, Programs.

WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!

That's the sound of me barking up the wrong tree.

A mod bit me.

I have 3 Great Lakes Modular SPL-KIT Star Post Light Boards under star posts at this sling, configured to flash when the sling coil fires.
One of the light boards' GND wire had frayed & was touching the neighboring coil solder pad.

In related news, I watched Tron w/ the kids. They didn't hate it!!!

A good few years

And the nicest thing of all opening an old NIB no pooling, no chipping, no flimsy shit anywhere, rock solid cabinet and a playfield that has hard clearcoat and looks like glass!

Just about a given that's gonna be a new pin. The question is will they f it up? Stern gets a 50/50 on that one.

#9647 37 days ago

Does anyone else get balls trapped up here, between the ramps?

They seem to jump up onto the disc plastic then go around to the left and get stuck.

air balls off the post sleeves? the new JP uses tapered post rubbers (thicker at the top) to help prevent that.
