Quoted from PlayPin:

In previous post I meant to say great thread...not post. I have watched this thread since it started and enjoyed it all the way. Still one thing I still have'nt figured out though? What the heck is Lamp?

#2802 4 years ago
Quoted from dendoc:

I have no idea why Centerflank used it as a reference though.

Brick and I have the same IQ level.

That might be the 6th time that video clip was posted in this thread, about every 7-8 pages someone asks what Lamp is. LOL!

Great post for a great game. Here's one more modded LE for the show:

@PlayPin,

Love those mirror blades. Where did you get them?

#2805 4 years ago
Quoted from dendoc:

The answer is in the tread - but to save reading - watch Brick in Anchorman. I have no idea why Centerflank used it as a reference though.

Thank you! I thought it was a pinball name acronym and I have been racking my brain as to which one he was talking about.

Thats funny. I have been following this thread since the start but obviously not too closely. Maybe my IQ level is about the same as Bricks too(or my attention span anyway). I am going to have to watch that movie, I missed that one. I always like movies those guys are in.

Quoted from labnip:

Its number 145

Quoted from bjorg:

@PlayPin,

Thanks. Thats the latest upgrade, I really like them. They are from PinGraphics

#2806 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

This thread is still going?

of course, even for those who have sold their pin... (snif)

#2807 4 years ago
Quoted from jasonbar:

I put in a ColorDMD & set it to a nice pale blue (wish the blue could go a little darker/richer)

Catching up with this thread, so sorry for the late reply, but you could put a piece of blue theater light gel in front of the DMD. The blacks will stay black, but the blues will go darker and richer depending on which color and transparency level you choose.

#2808 4 years ago

Thanks, Aurich. I have since set it to a cool orange, the other color most represented in my pin. Looks swell!

I like that Zen plastic, and the one over on the left too...who sells those again?

After playing Tron for awhile, I'm starting to believe that the Gem shot might be the most satisfying shot to hit on any of my pins. Each and every time I hit that shot it seems like a real accomplishment. If I can actually hit it while following Gem it's almost like hitting the lotto...

The best is hitting Gem off the plunge and it just makes it over the switch then rolls back over it registering for 2 hits. Simply awesome!

#2821 4 years ago

I agree, that would be a satisfying shot.

#2822 4 years ago

I'm pretty keen on getting the Flipper Fidelity animated LED backbox mod (http://flipperfidelity.com/lighting/animated-led-backbox-light-replacement-panels/stern-tron-animated-led-replacement-panel.html). There are two versions, standard and flashing for the 'girls' translite which is the one I have.

My question to the Tron owning community is (and assuming some of you have this mod); Are the two interchangeable?

I mean, they are both the same price. So I thought maybe they both have the same 'innards' but only some are active depending on the version you buy? It would seem a bit odd if the standard version only has half the lights of the other but is the same price.

Someone asked me for my Tron cards in another thread, so might as well put them here. Print at 300 dpi for the right size:

Quoted from Aurich:

Print at 300 dpi for the right size:

Ok, my obtuse moment for the day.. for the life of me can't find the adjustment for this.. If I open it in photoshop it is showing me 77PPI (which may or may not be the same as dpi for all I know) and changing that to 300 makes the image tiny. And in all my printer settings, mac or pc, I can't find a dpi setting. Me so DUMB, but anybody have the answer??

I had the same problem. Messing around in Photoshop for a good while before I gave up and just copy and pasted into a previous card file I had which was set to the right sizes!

Thanks Aurich, those look great and I'm looking forward to popping them onto my Tron.

Depending on if you're using Mac or Windows, look for "Preferences" under Photoshop or File in the toolbar. When Preferences window pops-up, look for a tab or screen option like this.
DPI is here:

Here, I'll make it super easy. This is a PDF version, just open it and print. All you have to do is make sure your printer settings are set to 100%, or full size, or don't scale, or some variation on that theme. No messing around with confusing DPI settings or anything.

I printed these out and they really look good--thanks!

#2846 4 years ago

Grrrrr. FLC mode (F'ing Light Cycle) killed me today. First ball and I had everything but FLC lit solid. It was one of those insane games that I played WAY over my skill level. Into SOS with it flashing, and catastrophic results. Ok, I can rescue this... Second ball was poop. Third ball I started FLC two more times. So over the course of the game I had 4 bites at it, and still failed. F this game right now. 140 million points of complete failure.

Now the only bummer is the upper images on the apron don't look as good as yours...maybe something to replace these might be in order?
