last month jeff was on the howard stern show.... best interview ever, love the guy even more now!

Quoted from Erik:

Just between us Troniacs, I'm hearing rumors that TRON LE Continued will be announced at Expo. I'm about to put mine on the market in anticipation! Here's a sneak peek of the translite, which will of course be lenticular

Post edited by Erik: Not really my thing, but apparently BrettB knows Borg and demanded more Jeff Bridges. Who am I to judge?

I'd be down for those Hooked caps if they just looked like identity discs and didn't say TRON. Maybe a rev. 2?

chrome all the way, fur sure.

these puppies create an entirely new light-show that's been always there, but hidden in the game.

they are tron stickers. put anything on them.

#2563 4 years ago

here's the parts...

can replace the stickers with home-made versions.

Oh cool. Has anyone installed them just without the Tron stickers? Would like to see a pic.

Yes. Awesome. This will max out my PIG2 connections...I'll now have too many mods to control fully without a second PIG2 LOL.

#2568 4 years ago
Quoted from Quiddity:

I'll steal pieces from others' posts and make a list:
1st run:
Plasma DMD
Screened Cabinet
3D backglass
Blue and Yellow diecast Light Cycles.
Lack of wiring for shaker motors
LE run:
same as above, with added wiring for a shaker
3rd run:
(if memory serves, the early handful from this run had a 3D backglass and both Light Cycles, they seemed to use them until they ran out)
Shaker wiring
LED DMD
Decaled Cabinet
Clu translite
Run began with the blue and yellow diecast Light Cycle, run ended with a yellow diecast Light Cycle and a blue diecast Light Runner.
4th run:
Everything from the third run, plus:
Games shipped with a Chicks translite installed and a rolled in a tube Clu translite
(diecast) Blue Light Runner and orange Light Jet
Can anyone add anything else to the list?
It's interesting to note (at least from a geeky point of view) that Clu's circuitry color is yellow (after the whole betrayal thing, anyways) and the 3rd run shipped with a yellow cycle. Fourth run the playfield toy (assuming that Stern had run out of their stock of them) became the orange Light Jet - orange being Rinzler's circuitry color, which completely justifies the loss of the Clu translite. Right?

Most(?) of the 3rd run (2013) came with decaled cabs, but there were a few leftover screened cabs they ended up using for that run. I got one of them. Everything else is the same (3d translight, LED DMD, ...).

I have the most rare edition

I agree.... it already says TRON enough all over the cabinet. not needed.

#2571 4 years ago

for a nominal $20.00 fee I will remove the 'Tron' stickers from folks hooked-pop-caps where they are already installed. Shipping of me in lower 48, ~$2,000.00
This is a deal at a total service+shipping of $2,020.00
But really... it's priceless for that new brighter and less tronny look

what a deal... i'll be shipping mine over next week

I want to get the pinbits devo hats upscaled to actual hat size and wear it while playing, possibly with some internal lighting instrumentation. Good idea? Or the best idea ever?

If I had an iota of photoshop skill I would already have one of those plastered on top of Tron guy's head and posted in this post. :[

#2583 4 years ago

Wondering if anyone has come up with some additional mods since posting them here earlier.

For a while, I was considering to get some glowballs, but reports of them chipping killed that idea. I can't imagine anything worse for a pin than a chipped ball scratching across the play field.

I guess, I'm itching to add something new to my beautiful machine. Just not sure there's anything left to add...

#2584 4 years ago

I think someone with cad and 3d printing skills could make a whole new bumper cap style that would be similar to the recognizers. Or at least one for the left bumper. I've often thought that bumper maybe was originally designed to be something recognizerish, with its two curiously tall posts

#2585 4 years ago

i have a mod idea, but it's crazy insane !!!

#2586 4 years ago

Well don't hold out on us!! I expect it involves you fully colorizing the game with smartdmd and providing us the code!

#2587 4 years ago

i'm so torn...
do i go public with the idea and let everyone run with it, or do i get my patents filed first and then bring it market

..hehehe

#2588 4 years ago

just spill it

#2589 4 years ago

hehehe ok...
i have to take some pix or find some images first.

#2590 4 years ago

Oh, look at this, I just found a Facebook page for Tron Pinball. It's rather empty though.

temezel is always up for suggestions on mods he can make with his 3d printer
