Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Red fits perfectly.

I like the red a lot on my Xmen-Spidey-LOTR, blue is great on TRON, my only orange left is TZ, would be nice if ColorDMD did that one. TrilogyBeer should have my TRON rails from Zdoor done soon!

Happy new years gents!

Go PACK!

I think Tron would look amazing with blue display. The only orange I have is BDK but I also have a tiny collection . I want to add a Black Hole to my collection, is it weird to want an 80's game? I grew up in the 80's.

Quoted from Erik:

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!

Sorry I'm wasted. Somehow I thought you were talking about Xmen.

Im drunk too, 35 people just left my house for the party I had.. Hopped on pinside, some guy trashed CRT monitors for lcds in arcade games in a bby pac thread, Im not sure I typed in english, I love Pinside when Im drunk.

I had 20 new people play TRON tonight at my party, one guy tried to bid on one on ebay while in front of my machine, (as he drank some Jager), he is now in the market, I tempered his enthusiasm, and pointed him to pinside to the midguided souls selling their trons, better than the $8K trons he was bidding on..

Happy new years tron lovers, Go Big Red.

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

Dude, the blue looks awesome on my Wolverine. I guess you would have to see it in person.

#1457 5 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Don't have one, but saw Brett showing it at Expo, looked good.

Does it still have the grid lines?

Yeah on a Wolverine edition it would look good because the trim and such is blue. But I don't think it will look that good on a Pro version machine.

you know what they say... once you go Chrome. . .

FYI, I went Black.

To match your blades?

#1465 5 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Actually to match the rails Im getting painted...but yeah the mirror blades too

I think if you have a TRON LE with chrome rails the chrome bumper tops are a no brainer!

Oh man, Im so close to being done with modding this pro, Im going to load 37 pics that day!

#1467 5 years ago
Quoted from retired_user_101:

This past week, I installed blue coin-reject buttons, blue Start button, PIG2 and my own version of custom speaker LED lighting.
Ripped the ramps off last night in prep to do: lightcycles, ELI's ramp lighting, and also removed the disc to install clear rubber. And while I'm at it, pulled the Recognizer to light that up too.

For the coin-reject buttons... did some custom-inserts from the adult photoshoot. They're so small, and too dark behind the blue plastic, you'd never know they were there. But I do.

Sounds like you'll need a local pro version to test them.

pix of the custom-inserts behind the coin-reject buttons

I may eventually re-do on better media... this was just two layers of normal paper. (one piece of paper, gives no contrast when back-lit)
Might do one Quora, one Gem.

I was playing Tron last night (at Rarehero's) and I realized that even though I've played it on location and people's houses, I've never actually played a Pro. Nothing but LEs. Good thing Eli busted his mod, it seems like it would be sad without the ramp lights.

Had a belated New Years Eve party a couple nights ago with some friends at my place. Played the crap outta Tron, and at about 5am the left upper flipper died and locked on. We must have played a good 50 games on her though before it bit it.

Yanked the board today and q12 mosfet is toast. What mosfet do I need to buy? It's q12 for upper flipper.

My poor baby haha

That sucks!

Good thing it's a cheap fix though, just a bit of a hassle.

You made it to Portal on the machine yet?

Still no portal, I did just learn about the Flynn/Scoop thing to finish modes in SOS, so that may help

I only needed to finish ZUSE the other day to light it...easy one haha, I only needed the far right standup I think...

What's the Flynn scoop thing to finish modes in SOS? Do you mean hitting the scoop after you complete each mode?
