Been doing a full Playfield swap for a clear coated Hutchins Playfield. Went ahead and polished metal parts and now adding mods while on the rotisserie...almost there..

Any mods I’m missing?

ramp cover plastics (not personally a fan as it hides the ball).
Lettered target decals (also the recognizer ones)

I have #22 LE. Was it normal for them to sign playfields? My buddy has a later number that is not signed. Just curious.

I looked and couldn’t find it, but is there a way in the settings to turn the sling coils down some?

There is one setting for coil power, but not specific coils. Iirc.

I did see that. Does it reduce power on every coil on the machine? I’ll give it a run!

So here I was sitting happy on this new LE, and my buddy came over and showed me what I’m missing. Ugh..... so $500-$600 later, I’ve got the rectifier w/lights (up/down), lit up cycle mod, Clu’s ship (on left ramp return), target decals, rectifier decal, and chrome plunger on the way to me. Am I missing anything LOL

He also says my machine music is terrible compared to his, assuming he’s got different sound chips, haven’t tackled that but if there is a link to order the popular one that won’t require a ton of research, would love the advice.

I’m not a big mod person at all but this machine seems to beg for it (really just fixing how it should have come from the factory).

Yeah reach out to inkochnitoon Pinside and he’ll you different versions to choose from. Just donate to him if you use his stuff.
I just got it from him last night.

Can you post link of chrome plunger? That sounds pretty cool too !

Do you have Flynn's sign, Pinbits fluorescent slinger plastics, Tron (metal) pop bumpers, pinblades (several cool one out there), backbox interactive lighting, speaker grill LED..

Tron is one of the most heavily modded game out there, it begs for it! Lol A crowd's favorite, no doubt. When I light it up at my place, people really enjoy it. You also totally NEED a subwoofer.

#10316 10 days ago

One of the best mode for this game… solid sound system cause the music is sooo good!! I have flipper fidelity speakers and a little 100 watt amazon amp with a built in low pass crossover (18.00) and it sounds killer!

Thank you. If it works great can you send me a link?

Do you need an extra amp with flipper fidelity speakers?

I have mirror blades on mine. I also have everything else (either installed or coming) but the Flynn’s sign. Where can you buy those now?

If you mean a big size Flynn's neon or LED sign, they are offered all over, different sizes, real neon, etc., just google this. The original Tron arcade was Bally Midway..

Anyone know where to get ahold of these shooter rods. Love them but seems they are no more? Pinball decals originally had them.

Cmon, we have enough misrepresentation and click bait on the world of the interwebs… so because “LE” is in quotes does this make it ok to call a pro and LE?

With a hardtop. Oh sweet Jesus. How is that 'better than new' exactly? And I say that as someone who owns two hardtops and loves them. Maybe he spent some time moonlighting as a used car salesman at one point...

It does look great but imo misrepresented and a laugher at $5500. But what do I know, someone will probably buy it...

#10333 4 days ago

Yeah, listing a Tron pro as “LE” because it’s loaded doesn’t make it an LE. Even if you added 4 drop targets and chrome and a motorized recognizer and daft punk MB code, it would be a modified pro with LE features. My Tron pro is pretty crazy loaded, and I’m only willing to go so far as to call it a “premium” in the listing.

Is adding the DP MB code to a pro even possible?

Not that I've ever heard. Some talented coder can probably do it, if they weren't so busy trying to add a wizard mode to Mousin' Around.

Hi guys,

I recently joined the club. I was lucky to find a HUO single owner Pro. Absolutely everything on it was stock. So the first order of business was to upgrade to all the LEDs. I picked up one of those complete sets from Comet annnnnnd wow. The before and after photos are pretty striking.

I have to say, I am in love with this machine.

#10341 3 days ago

After my friend dogged my pretty stock LE, I got busy online, received and installed my mods today - backbox light (w/flasher), Clu ship, lighted rectifier (when it moves), Flynn’s sign, decals on rectifier gate/targets, Zuse decals, yellow/blue plastic protectors, and a chrome shooter. I already had lighted cycles. I’ve got mirrored chrome flipper bats incoming.

What did I miss? LOL. I’m not a crazy modder at all but everything I did feels like the game should have come this way.

Had a problem though, kept blowing my F12, F13 (12v) fuses, lowering the playfield. For the life of me I can’t figure out what it’s hanging on when I get near the bottom of lowering but the only thing I can find is the black tubing taking the harness from cabinet to backbox, but I think that’s it. I’ve also got mirrored side blades that I though we’re the issue but they maybe we’re just contributory towards it, they wouldn’t cause the issue. It really just feels like it’s binding up once I get over the “hump” lowering the playfield. Anybody else have this issue?

Also, how do I get the good music for the LE? I was given on name on this thread and he only does Pro.

Happy to be part of the club, now I can get to playing this game to which punishing is the nicest thing I can say so far!!

Hmm on the 12v… sounds like your only 12v mod is the Flynn sign?

Congrats on your Tron! I have a pro also and it’s a top 10 pin for me. Smooth, fast, punishing and easy to understand the rules. Great music, theme and I like the art. The lighted ramps are just awesome. Your before/after for the led conversion is amazing. Incredible difference. If the LEDs are flickering or don’t pulse the way the incandescents do, get an OCD board. I just installed one on my LOTR and it’s great. Easy to install too. Have fun!

F12 and F13 killed the 12v (which was the Flynn's sign, ColorDMD, and audio). I've sorted the problem out, something pulled or touched or shorted when lowering the playfield, thank goodness for fuses!

Yea after I converted every bulb to color matched led's above and below pf the color was amazing but all the transitions were harsh and epileptic, it hurt to spend even more dough on another thing for the lights but the OCD board is kind of a must-have on this one

#10348 1 day ago

I have led ocd in almost all my games, it’s a great device! Well worth the money.

You guys have any remedy for the spinning disc as mine seems to be getting louder and louder. Is this the same spinning disc mech in Sterns POTC?

I don't know if the mech is the same as the POTC spinner, but the MOTOR is the exact same as used in shaker motors. If you want to just replace the motor use this: https://www.pinballlife.com/replacement-motor-for-stern-shaker-kits.html

I've also read some posts of people oiling the motor bushings to make it quieter. I haven't done this myself but it's worth a shot before replacing it.
