Quoted from Rom:

Can I join the club?
Opened in january 2014 and modded. I'd like to add more but I take a break now and play a bit.
This is already my second Tron pro. I missed it so much, I had to find another NIB and do the modding all over again. But this time with Eli's color changing ramp lighting. Just wonderful!

Can anyone remember where I can find the little board that screws inside the cab to attach all these mods too without a spaghetti of splitters?

#2454 5 years ago

Found it, sorry. The search feature does work! PIG2 needed. I want to put my Sparky TV in my torn, and with light cycles, ramps lights, arcade, flynn sign, lit flipper buttons, it's crazy down there!

Quoted from dendoc:

search for: Pig II (Pig 2)

#2456 5 years ago

If you just need power for your mods and no intelligence then the FTS-8 will do it for relatively cheap

Do you need the Pig2 or FTS-8? Pig 2 allows you to control lights, coils, and switches (I think), but the FTS -8 is just an 8-way splitter and much less expensive.

#2459 5 years ago

Quite right. FTS-8 needed. Bought that instead. Thanks

#2460 5 years ago

I had a funny stuck ball issue. Ball flew off ramp entrance up to the top of the spinning disc, and then settled in the oval cutout in the plastic that the wires feed through. No amount of nudging was going to free this ball. Glass off time.

wow. haven't had that particular spot happen before
but, the balls have wound up in some interesting places.
have had them park on the top right near ramp where there's a rubber post.

Tron LE is soooo overrated.

That's right you non Portal completing players.

Only thing fun to go for on Tron is big EoL jackpots.

Reason # 73 why I love Tron....when the ball flies up an inlane so fast that it makes a perfect arc over and drops down the opposite inlane, yeah, thats pretty sweet.

#73bis : less funny, when after the "arc", it goes to the opposite... outlane

#2474 4 years ago

I just got my replacement hex post (snapped a screw inside it putting a lamp back on) and cleaned the old girl off after installing new rubbers, put the glass back on, and WHOA WHOA WHOA WHAAAAA?!? A combination of new white rubbers, cleaned playfield and maybe, MAYBE a little rust from playing too much ST:TNG has resulted in a game that is lightning-fast! The rubbers really do make a difference, I'm seeing the game do some crazy things it never did before.

#2475 4 years ago

Crazy sheet going on here, Troniacs. Yesterday I was fantasizing about an all-new Tron game, then last night I had this amazing dream involving the lovely ladies of Tron. And then this morning I see this license plate.

Something is afoot at the Circle-K!

Nice. Yeah, it's just the total fkn shiz isn't it? I watched this a couple of times back to back even though I could just go downstairs and look at mine, lol. Insert colours looking pretty strong there.. Any gels installed or is it just the camera? I put a red gel on the centre Flynn insert as it is positively pink, and I was all like, "pink? No, that is not a colour that is going to live on Tron."

No gels. When I am taking video of a pin that is turned on, I usually drop the exposure by 1/2 to 3/4 stops. This helps prevent the lights from being overexposed as much and gives a little more saturation to the colors.

Today was a good day. I joined the club!

#2484 4 years ago

I joined the club yesterday, picked up an LE! Immediately got it home and put in a few LEDs in the GI.10384045_10153156534063677_5480259024968008595_n.jpgphoto(16).JPG10641276_10153161088493677_2346207203913315579_n.jpg10580110_10153161089963677_3644688622503085934_n.jpg

hey, and you're in Rosenberg, Tx.
that's where i grew up.

Didn't know they allowed any form of technology in Rosenberg (some kind of old farming law)

I've come across a few long time pinball collectors in the area, its pretty surprising!

I had the same thing happen to me 2 nights ago, but on the oval plastic cutout on the right side of the recognizer.

The hole is accommodating 2 pairs of cables: 1 for the flasher, 1 for the illuminated light cycle. I used a couple of small cable ties (in a nice Tron blue color, of course) to try to tighten up the wire where it passes through the center of the hole--hopefully, it will discourage the ball from landing in there again...hopefully...

Tron is 1000x better with an external subwoofer hooked up. That is all.

#2490 4 years ago

i still need to try that.

#2491 4 years ago
Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

All around it is a great addition. But the start of Lightcycle, just wow. There is so much low frequency sound that is just missing if you are only using the stock speakers. Just that startup makes putting a sub on the game worth it.

Quoted for truth.

#2493 4 years ago

Put the Pinball Customs recognizer decal on today. Such a no-brainier mod, every Tron should have one!

Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

I couldn't agree more. All the subsonic information just explodes. It really brings the pin to life. Once you have the sub hooked up, try switching it off for a second, and realize how lame the game sounds without it.

The only problem is, now I want subs on ALL my games!

Just added subs to my STLE, and my MET. I used the PinPac 2 Mac external volume, and headphone kit from Pinnovators. Gives you great control over an external powered sub. Awesome product.

Yes, it holds up too. I bought one from pinball decals and it was trashed in a couple months. I put the pinball customs one on after and still going strong more then a year later.

#2498 4 years ago

Frax finished up our lightcycles, arcade, and eli's ramp kit last night. Not too much more left to go - at least on the playfield, anyways.

#2499 4 years ago

Installed the Pinbits kit and LEDs in the GI tonight, then proceeded to hit Sea of Simulation. This game is pretty cool.

#2500 4 years ago

TRON fucking rocks! No way around it.

Edit---BTW, the family and I were at the local bowling alley tonight, they have a Playboy and Striker Extreme, my wife had her initials on the game (PB) from a long time ago for 60mill, I crushed it, got 120mill for the GC! We put so many free plays on the game it had 5 credits when we were done. LOL!
