I still can't believe what great shape that spidy was in for a routed pin.

Indeed, the outer cab has its multiple nicks but whatever, the shooter lane was its worst aspect as far as I was concerned, here is a pic before&after, I cut mylar to wrap in the ball groove, not the prettiest but good to go.

I always felt you don't play the side art, playfield is king. And that SM playfield is nice. The shooter lane looks way better after you restored it.

Quoted from Keebler:

How do you not have slide rails yet? I hated the posts for the couple hours I had to use them.

I'd never actually seen those pegs til now. When I saw the pic I thought QuarterGrabber was using some sort of crazy ribbed shooter rod as a pointer

Still trying to get one of these damn pins. Grrrrrr

Any chance on firmware upgrade for the invert?

Yea, we have some beta code out there, it's probably time for an official update.

I bought this just because of this thread. I bought it blindly too, and I paid roughly $1000 more than X-men (which was the other game I had wanted at the time, and I had actually played X-men before as well).

I REGRET NOTHING! I've felt my collection was complete ever since owning it. I have it next to LOTR and it's a perfect contrast. Definitely the fastest heart pounding pinball I have ever played!

And the sounds! I replaced the Gem track with an "End of the Line" loop and it's AWESOME! Just like the movie!

I won't get rid of this game unless I'm gettign rid of pinball.

Quoted from retired_user_101:

hi,

will you let me know when you have an update. i'd like to buy the unit with the newest update together.

thx,
bb

Any new unit you buy will have the newer software on it. I meant that I needed to get an official update out for those who already have the PIG 2.

Spidey and Newcastle were both great , Thanks again. I put up a decent score , but the word on the street is that you"ve bested that . As for Tron Everyone knows you love it and I enjoy it But It sure seems to Hate us .

When trilogy and I play TRON we have the worst combined score in the annals of TRON.

But Spidey is so pretty now

I'm thinking of getting those pajamas and matching up with these to take the experience to the next level.

Quoted from retired_user_101:

blue glo-balls coming soon for your Tron pin.
see here --> http://modmypin.com

Seems like a pain in the butt. Your ball through isn't lit so if you want the effect you need to open your machine, take the glass off, take the balls out, leave the balls under a light for an hour, put them back in the machine, put the glass back on. Then you can enjoy the glowing balls for 10 minutes until it wears out. No thanks.

Fine print at the bottom of that website:

"*Pinballs glow in the dark only after being exposed to a light source that charges the balls. The longer the ball is exposed to a light source, the longer it glows.**while supplies last. "

#980 7 years ago

Me thinks someone should come up with a mod that illuminates those balls while they are resting.

Quoted from bjorg:

That is a great idea. And maybe for a half hour before you turn the machine on too
But to be serious, that is a GREAT idea!

LOL, where do you find that? I might wear that next time I go to a local pinball event and spaz everyone out! Ha!

Damn this thread wont die, who the hell is posting pics of a Spidey in here, Banvotes!!!

#985 7 years ago

The white fluorescent could also look great, especially if you've installed an extra lighting kit.

Uh, well, if you have rocket propulsion boots in a suit of armor like that Tony Stark dude its only a few minutes.

If I read it correctly, everyone's karma points got 10x'ed. Makes them look like pin score.

Hey guys, I just bought a Tron pro and will be picking it up tomorrow.

Never played a Tron before. I just hope I did not buy a stinker???

I reckon this is the right place to ask... Is Tron any good?

Thanks to this thread, This machine has already cost me a fortune. On order and soon to arrive are the following:

-New Arcade
-Flynn Sign
-New HM Cycles
-Target Bank Top Decal
-Chrome lockdownbar
-Blue led flasher inside the scoop
-Backboard Light kit
-Mirrored Stainless Steel Ball - Chrome Shooter Assy (I just love those)
-Black Mirror Side Blade Set
(the only mod already installed when I get it is playfield leds)

Things to get soon:
-Chrome side rails
-Recognizer mod with orange top light and probably white on down light
-FF speaker set
-Eli Lights fantastic when available

Is it possible to use a single color SIGMA setting on a color dmd on Stern games? If so, there goes even more cash

Now what did I miss? There's got to be more "must have" mods?

I have enjoyed reading this thread enormously the last few days. Thanks to OP for starting it and everyone else who have kept the light burning for so long

Not yet, but soon. They demoed a SIGMA for Stern at a recent show, but they're not publicly available at this time.

Ok I got my Tron yesterday... I had been on the fence about this game, but after playing it last night I have decided I love it WAY more than lamp!

Ps. I Would Iike to to do chrome rails and lockdown bar where is the best place to buy those items? Also do the FF speakers make a big difference?

#995 7 years ago
Quoted from karl:

Insert the Futurama professor "huhwhaaaa?"
Seriously? Uhm.. what do you think this thread is about anyhow? We all LOVE Tron Legacy Pinball. It is a great playing machine.
Now, some might think (frax) that it gets boring after getting into portal mode 90% of the time. (you can ignore him.. he is a great player and a normal game lasts between 40-50 mins.)
The rest of us like it. Usually Tron's are keepers because of the theme and play-ability.

I love my Tron.. and have done some mods to it.. Lit up flipper buttons, Hallmark lightcycles, Arcade cabinet, cliffy protectors, recognizer mod, clear identity disc rubber, FF Speakers, etc. and will be getting Eli's light tubes as soon as they are publicly available.

I am sure you will like it if you like the following things:
1. Tron
2. Pinball

Back to lurking. =)

#996 7 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

do the FF speakers make a big difference?

Yes, they make a HUGE difference.. just make sure you follow the directions.. and hook up the volume in the backbox.. and then I set mine to about 10 o clock on the dial.. and set the Low - High setting to High on the Sub..
Once you do that, it makes it seem like you have an external Sub now.. but all self contained.

My ONLY gripe (if you call it a gripe) about the speakers, is that the speaker cable was just short between the speakers, and once I turned one of the speakers to the side, it all worked perfectly.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Mike Chestnut had some chromed Stern hardware in inventory last time I was over there

If you are ordering a new lockdown bar I believe you may also need to swap out the receiver. Also you might prefer a pair of pf slides instead of the pegs

Just so you guys know, the Blue dmd from Pinballlife includes the blue filter. Its the Vishay, I dont see it on the website anymore but he may still have some.
