i have now set the angle of the socket to follow the scoop, its blinking more with the reflections on the metal
and/or i could also place it just on the wood level, right on the hole behind the scoop, easy trick

What the hell does Lamp mean ?

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFf you guys LOL

#1405 7 years ago

This post started many months ago and got me looking closer at the Tron. A couple of months ago I picked up LE, No.101. Outstanding ramp lighting with the under cab blue lighting and the blue DMD are a visual pleasure guaranteed to give me a smile after along day at the grind. Tron is a keeper.

You must have been an Owner of this sweet machine at one time. I am not sure where she has been, but I know she is in Studio G now and she isn't leaving anytime in the foreseeable future. Thanks for taking care of her and breaking her in easy. Wax on, wax off.....

Nice, I can see that filling up real fast. We should make it a Tron lovefest project to fill your fridge with pin stickers. I may have a few more but that would require me to open my goodie bags stapled on the inside of my machines, and I hate doing that

Ha, I rip those out and open them up right away, I paid all that cash Im going to enjoy all the rewards!

The routed spidey I just got a few months ago still had the goodie bag with everything in it as far as I know, wasnt stapled in the cabinet but present. A nice little bonus!

Yes that is always a nice little surprise to find. My BDK still had it stapled to the side untouched, so I left it that way. I suppose if I ever need the plastics inside I will open it. But I get plastic protectors from pinbits for every machine so I don't think I will need the plastics inside the bags ever.

Quoted from retired_user_101:

Got my light cycles all wired up last night, just have to get them mounted on the plastics, install them and tidy up the wires.

Also hooked up the cool splitter from DK Custom Pinball, looks great.

Also can't forget that big 10 inch subwoofer from FF, that sucker rocks!

Lookin good!

#1429 7 years ago

yes, i agree, really nice, fit perfect on the pin

#1430 7 years ago

now, as we admit that we need 2 colors, blue vs yellow (to respect the movie), why not white for the 3rd bumper in the back, near the ZUSE spinner...

!?

#1431 7 years ago

Tron back in the gameroom and loving it...Im really trying to learn the rules and now understand why this game is so awesome. Love the lights and sounds. Question is on Find Flynn according to pin news review a red arrow moves accross pf from left to right. I never seem to see a red arrow and sometimes I get flynn lit solid and dont know what I did. Was there an update or did I not get the memo or what to do?

#1432 7 years ago

You have to hit the switch over to the right of the arcade machine to start Flynn mode. Then you'll see the lights cycle through. You'll probably find it's not something you'll need to aim for as you'll complete it during the course of the game without even noticing it.

#1433 7 years ago

#1434 7 years ago

Definitely one of those modes I feel I can ignore - it gets completed on its own in probably game ever played.

#1435 7 years ago

#1436 7 years ago

Thanks...understand all the comments I just dont recall seeing red arrow flashing anywhere

#1437 7 years ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

It's not like a bunch flashing at once. If the Flynn insert is flashing, cradle the ball and look for the flashing arrow. I believe that it goes in order from left to right. Left loop, then left ramp entrance, then Quorra, and so on. Also, on ball one, I believe if you miss the scoop skill shot, and the ball goes through the Zen, if you hot the right ramp (left ramp entrance) for the secondary skill shot, then you've found Flynn also.

Yep, this is correct, I just hit that shot trying to see the flashing arrows myself, it was soooooo pleasureful.

new favorite word. Thanks centerflank!

Quoted from btw75:

Exactly why we added a flynn ramp effect in Elis ramp kit. Start flynn, fushia color ramps glow and when you complete flynn, ramps turn off. Now at least you know when you are in flynn mode.

#1441 7 years ago

Nice! One day I have to play one of these Tron ELIs

#1442 7 years ago

#1443 7 years ago

Would you believe I played Tron 3 times today and 2 of those games I completed LCMB (which I almost never do). In both games I failed to even reach SOS yet it was extremely pleasureful™!

Merry Christmas Tron fans, got the new plastic protector set, chose blue for the ZEN plastic, love it, and it gave me a new avatar...

Happy New Year, lovefesters!

Any of you guys have one of those white x-pin DMDs? I have the blue one but have been thinking about swapping it out. Lemme know your thoughts!

Blue on Xmen would look weird IMO. Red fits perfectly.

Don't have one, but saw Brett showing it at Expo, looked good. It's really impossible to photograph what it looks like with the gel filters on, never looks right, but it looks great that way, so it's pretty cool that you can easily change up the color whenever you want.

Short of a ColorDMD it's the best way to go now IMHO.
