Gosh I really love this game but it pisses me off at times. Seems like each game leaves me flipping the machine off with my right hand while simultaneously reaching to start another game with my left.
To me, that is great pinball. That is why I bought a ticket to the show.

Finaly I will stop bothering you guys with a Tron Pro Vault Edition on other threads lol. Found one NIB chicks edition and it's coming home.

I have been stashing mods for this Tron for about 2 years..... Chrome armor, light cycles, clu, gem, castor, arcade, mirrors......

I'm still amaze by the patience I had during this project. Usualy not one of my virtue.

Will get some pictures when I'm done.

Well done!

Why wait out a VE, still NIB's floating around as you obviously found out. Enjoy!!!!!

Edit----The clear disc pad is a must have in my opinion, adds so much crazy to the game. Trilogy and I were playing a few rounds last night and I was having an OK ball but then a return from the clear disc shot it out so wicked it smacked off the glass over my flippers in a violent fashion. So Awesome!!!!

I agree with this. I flick that sucker off every game, but always love when I hear the starting sounds.

Flank and gang, check this out.....ordered 1/2 size ( 18.5x27) movie poster of TRON Legacy. Advertised as two sided ( inverted image on back) to make colors deeper. Got it, and was actually 2different pictures...threw it in the lightbox for kicks.....and looks cool as shit ( sort of)....

What do you think? I'm going to get a " real" two sided for it ( only $7.00) but this is growing on me, the more I stare at it.....mark

Some people were asking and I lost track of who. Flynn's signs are back in stock again.

some tech help for my pro please - blowing F10 every time I turn it on. I'm still learning schematics - so had a look at the manual on the Stern website (because you don't get manuals nowadays unless it a bloody LE). Tested resistance on the flipper coils, ball eject and autolaunch- and all over 4. Anything else I should check?

Chech the back panel flashers. Had the same problem a couple weeks ago. Broken solder joint on one of the flashers. Also had to replace a transistor. If your flashers are the problem and they are stuck on after the repair, turn the pin off ASAP. They will melt things.

I don't think I will ever be done spending money on this machine...lol! I just got done putting a clear coated playfield on mine and every mod imaginable, but this one was not avail. anymore...well there goes another $80...

Thanks. Tried that, even disconnected all the flasher connections under the playfield, but F10 still pops as soon as I close the coin door. Went to the test menu to test each coil individually, but won't let me close the door/depress the switch without tripping.

The troubleshooting suggestions posted by markmon and empty-m in this thread would seem to be relevant.

#2975 4 years ago

Thanks, looks like I have a similar problem.

Now to try and work out wiring diagrams!

#2976 4 years ago

Latest in the testing solutions - unplugged all low coils and flasher molexes from the power board - still blew. Swapped my power board from CSI ( sorry tron) to Tron, and problem fixed. So looks like its the board. Time to learn to test transistors?

Just put PDI glass on the LE. Oh my.

Stunning. There are plenty of threads about glare-free glass, so I'm not going to bother with my own version of crappy video or pics, but the deep blue of the Tron PF really lends itself to the PDI treatment. Literally just take your normal glass off, have a look, and that's what it looks like.

I saw a xmen le with glare free glass...@@#$@#$# amazing. Looks like no glass at all.

#2981 4 years ago

I wonder if PDI glass will be available for sale at the Tx Pin Fest in March this year?

Yeah, I went with Invisiglass, and I think it is the best mod out there for Tron. There is just something about the look of the game as it shines through.

Extremely doubt that. If there was, someone would've been taking pre-orders to fill already.

#2984 4 years ago

Here i am again, just cant get a hold of a Tron, LE nor regular. Going back to the waiting room. Maybe this VE comes to my rescue.

Yep....as addictive as ColorDMD, for sure....It rocks big time on TRONLE!!!

#2986 4 years ago

i have an external sub on my Tron Le. it sounds great in my opinion. has anyone noticed a big difference by putting in a flip fid or pin pro sound system in their game? it is basically the only mod i have not done on the game. thanks, ant

#2987 4 years ago

I installed this:

Flipper Fidelity "Flipping Fantastic Big 10 Inch" Stern Speaker System

Easy install. Wonderful sound. Awesome bass, most noticeably during the Light Cycle Multiball start.

Wowzers.

what's the pitch? the ball just settling there near the arcade scoop seems bizarre.

My Tron is set at around 7-7.5 I'd guess. I like my games steep and fast...

Here's another good one I had...

just back from a week-end at Eurodisney in Paris...
we meet 3 Trons (pro), 1 working very bad, 1 not tried, and 1 working good, at the arcade of the Disney Village (hello to the owners if your read)

we spent 2 hours there, raping the pin & getting the 3 first places, with 4 portal reached, and leaving with credits on it (because my son did get enough)

now, what about these, is this the best knew hiscore score in the world !? i dont know, but its quite amazing, done by my son (not me lol) :

parisanto.JPG

1 SOS & 2 portal played (not completed) in the same game
to be honest, lets say pin is dirty, than playing slowly than usual, tilt really friendly, last code version on it, and 3 balls game with EB

than tags ANT & MIC are from us, if you go there and play a game, almost you know...

The right side has a launch button and the left side has a street light? Oh and it looks like someone took a Tron and turned it into a virtual pin.
