Quoted from bjorg:

Quick general question. I installed the clear disc below the recognizer, which looks really great when the flashers below go off. However, that disc has an insane amount of grip and ejects the ball at very unsafe speeds. Any recommendations on how I could slow down the rotational speed of it?

mine's been in for around 4 months...still pretty speedy....make sure you've got your plastic protectors installed...all I've got advise wise......

Mine has come out w so much back spin, it will go half way down the pipe (SDTM), then turn around and go all the way through right ramp....scary and cool at the same time!!!!

Damn you people, you weren't supposed to post that until it was on my game!

It is blue. It is for Tron. I could not resist. Just wonder if it will grip like the clear one.

Thats the best Effin part about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep it clean so it grips like a white knuckler

Tron music is my second favorite game with my headphone kits.. It's a close call to ironman audio with over ear headphones.

Quoted from HENSBROOKER:

Have any of you ever thought of swapping those cheap-looking white zip ties for transparent cable clips?

Has anyone tried using these? If so, do they look okay? Easy install?
I never saw a reply to the original question and I am getting ready to install the mod this week.

#2664 5 years ago

I don't see how those transparent clips could work with the holes on the ramps.

#2667 5 years ago

Ok, so enlighten me. I'd rather ask a dumb question than to stay ignorant. And I certainly want my pin to look as badass as it can!

#2668 5 years ago

I'm not sure about those clips. Looks like they're held on with a piece of foam double sided tape. So assuming you run your fiber optics under the lips of the ramps everywhere the clips attach they'd block the light coming through

Don't you hate it when you notice this during a game? Third time. Using heavy duty 2 part glue too. image.jpg

Haha, reading the description would have helped! I was just looking at the first two pics and was curious as to how the clear plastic would clip onto the ramps. If there is adhesive involved, I'd think it would look a lot worse that what it looks like now. The current look is pretty discreet.

I'm caught up on my reading. Took a lot of nights of reading this thread on my tablet to put me to sleep each night, dreaming of Tron. Amongst all the noise, there was a good amount of signal that I picked up. I made a long wish list of mods & such, & I've already implemented many. Most of them are the same old same old, so I won't bore you with pictures of my Pro.

Non-standard items:
1 - I put in a ColorDMD & set it to a nice pale blue (wish the blue could go a little darker/richer), set it to high definition upscaling mode, & I should keep a rag next to the machine to wipe up my drool when admiring the image. Super duper easy install. My machine had a blue Stern DMD in it--perhaps I'll put that in my Avengers LE Blue...then I'll have 2 really blue Sterns lined up...how cute. (I'm generally not blown away by the Color DMD art, but I love the upscaling, & the newly released Indiana Jones coloring job is absolutely stunning!!!)

2 - I decased & installed a Nifty 555 Super Bright Flex Red (like this: http://niftyled.com/555-Super-Bright-Flex-Red-p136.html) into the recognizer & wired it in parallel w/ the recognizer insert in the middle of the PF. It does sometimes illuminate in unique patterns or when other inserts on the same column light, but oh well--I rather enjoy its unpredictability.

3 - Not satisfied with the "left" light cycle (Hallmark ornament mod) being too white as presented to me when I bought it, I wanted to blue it up a bit to complement the orange light cycle. I had some of this transparent blue paint left over from a previous project (where I need an optical quality transparent effect, but this spray produced a hazy/cloudy effect on that other project): http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=TESR2457 .

I first tried brushing the paint on, but that turned out crummy, so I got a fresh light cycle & did a proper job of spraying it with about 6 coats of transparent blue & then several clears: amazon.com link »

Some rewiring, putting them both in parallel w/ the PF light cycle insert (instead of always-on w/ a DK 8-way, as it was set up when I bought it), & the blue one looks much bluer than before.

Pics don't capture it very well, but it's definitely snazzier.

So, for the cost of shipping, I'm happy to mail out the poorly painted light cycle, if somebody has a good use for it...like dressing up their drab Mustang pinball or something...

Thanks,
-Jason

New member here! Sold my perfect Scared Stiff last week and picked up my Tron exactly one week later. Been playing it all weekend

Had a lot of blue GI (smd led) which I don't like, so placed an order last night to replace them with cold white led GI.
Needs a new left ramp as it's missing a piece. Will install it with the cliffy protectors of course.

And I have the tron upright arcade also in the gameroom so it makes a nice pair.

I would love to install the eli light wire kit, but these are sold out at pinbits. Any news of them coming back or can I put myself on a list?

Quoted from jasonbar:

Because you didn't wire it "right", you're basically creating an open path around the diode. Probably other inserts lighting when they're not supposed to be as well on that part of the matrix. If it doesn't bother you, no need to fix, and if it does at some point, it's a really easy fix. Just re-attach the wire that's in front of the diode to the other lead of the diode.

So instead of MODWIRE----<LAMP>----<DIODE||>---MODWIRE
go MODWIRE----<LAMP>----MODWIRE---<DIODE||>>

here's an old graphic I made when I hooked into lamp matrix on my Space Shuttle for my custom topper, that does a pretty good job of explaining.

I c'ant find (code) rule for Tron...Papa did not do a video Tutorial for Tron ?

#2679 5 years ago

The only Papa video for Tron is Roy Wils in comp. It is still pretty good. Covers most of the game.

--edit. No, there is another. But it's not very thorough.

yea, that needs more clear. I thought LE's had the "extra" clear added from stern. Sure doesn't look like extra clear to me.

#2689 5 years ago

Thats a lotta duct tape.

Also interesting about the spare pf being numbered out of 400. Makes me wonder if they ever made all 400 LEs.

Wonder if quarterGrabber's pf was numbered

This was my playfield. TimeBandit bought it from me. I can't believe after an entire roll of duct tape the damn shippers still managed to punch a hole in it

Got a Flynns sign from DK Pinball today--ran it right over to Tron to install. I kept going back and forth on whether or not to buy this one but I'm glad I did, it looks awesome.

Just make sure to send it to a Professional that does great work..... in other words, not Neo. His tears usually get on the pf before he clears and causes fisheyes.
