Anyone know of where I can purchase or does anyone have an extra set of Cliffy protectors.

I would contact Cliffy directly. He ships stuff out super fast in my experience

How many plays did you have on it before the last code update. those were wiped out so you need to add those plays too.

I have never updated the code since I bought it

well, of course having 2 or 3 pins "only" home makes to have more games on them...
mine gets 7000-8000 when sold, and still beautifull

Only 916 on mine....judging by my recent success, I'll be at 1500 in no time ( this game has been just brutal on me for so long, can't get a long game in)...wish I was better at it, but LOVE the game....

Suspect I dodge it on a night or so here and there, when I'm looking to get my initials up, or just not get the shit kicked out of me in record time.

super rubbers

#3712 4 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

super rubbers

Already living there...( orange and blue of course) ....hard to describe....game is so addicting, it's probably my favorite, but also scares the hell out of me....rules are pretty straightforward, but the game is at such a pace, I can't ever really get ahold of it.

I'll have a "WOZ" night, or "SM" night, etc., where I only play that machine, and can usually make some headway ( comfort level)....

"TRON" nights....lets me in, but can never get to that confidence level....probably move to 5 ball, and start cradling the hell out of balls.....

Make no mistake....I live to beat this thing...

342 plays here and my scores are completely stinking it up recently

#3715 4 years ago

I have 923 plays on mine and I think I may have had 25 on before the last code update, so let's say 950.

Geez, that's it? Do you ever have people over to play?

No one is allowed in the Tron vault.

I will be joining the club soon! My Tron is set to ship out tomorrow. Pray that it makes it unscathed!

Does anybody have the full pinballbulbs Tron light kit installed? My buddy has their kit in his STTNG and it is freaking beautiful. I am curious to see if anybody likes it for Tron.

#3723 4 years ago

did you guys see this yet??

Yes I put that pinball bulbs led kit into mine - looks awesome. Really makes a big difference in the blue disc lights and the green lights. You will love it I am sure.

Cool, I thought you just had the 'competitors' kit.

#3727 4 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

I have the entire GI kit. So all GI bulbs and all the extra double spotlights and light strip in the back, which I actually removed because it deluded the Eli's ramp kit too much. The only thing that isn't PBB is the inserts which are coin taker. But insert lights anyone can do on their own and don't show up in pics anyway.

#3728 4 years ago

Very good. Thanks! So the competitor kit is just the GI, spots and strips?

Yes, the competitor kit is everything above the PLAYFIELD.

just did this for a mate, so thought to share it here, we are going to paint a bright blue paint into the lettering to help it pop.

I just ordered one in polished grey steel. I'll be interested to see pictures of the painted one to help me decide whether to paint mine or not.

Any chance you could make one that looks like an identity disc with no TRON lettering on it?

#3734 4 years ago
Quoted from herg:

thanks for the purchase, I ordered one for my mate a few days ago so once I get it I paint it and will show you, this is what it looks like with paint in the pattern and really simple to do.

Painting process - got to a hobby shop and get some gloss acrylic paint and a paint brush and brush it in to the pattern, then put some white spirits or equivalent on to a rag then put the damp rag over a sanding block to get a smooth surface and pull it tight then wipe the excess off - simple. Wait 24hrs and do again and a 3rd time for a nice level finish.

Assembly process - The inner design of the plunger knobs has a cavity for excess epozy to go into with one small breather hole on the back side at the bottom. It also has a recessed edge at the bottom of the hole so the epoxy anchors in place. The breather hole takes away that suspension / compressed air effect so you put in the epoxy and a little on the end of the rod and twist into place and just match the rod length to your regular stern plunger rod and because there is a breather hole the rod should stay in the set place and not keep ejecting out as there will be no compressed air effect pushing the rod out. And there shouldn't be any mess, but if there is use white spirits or thinners.

Have fun.

sample photos are of the WW in Gold which is a little more textured, and the Kiss one is the polished nickel

yes, please post a pic of what you would like, shapeways has a few design limitations ( width of material for the pattern etc) but would like to do an optional one.

Don't forget you can take the backboard piece off the play field with 4 screws and easy access to that outer loop.

edit---Ah, you took the ramps off, probably easy to get at already....

Time to change that black rubber disc to a clear one.

They had to come out... Eli is coming to town

Pinbits protectors as well, so easiest to yank it all.

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

I keep going back and forth on that. It gets pretty dizzy now, and I keep hearing the clear makes it insane. I've been to portal once since I unboxed it 4.5 years ago, so I'm not sure in want to make it crazier.

#3740 4 years ago

Get those dirty black ball trails and marks all over your PLAYFIELD and have to clean it more often or accept the crazy. Sometimes it's easier just to accept the crazy.

#3741 4 years ago

I thought the rubber disc would sling it out so fast that it would be breaking plastics and stuff. But nope, it's actually not that bad.

#3742 4 years ago

The clear disc is a must do upgrade, Im convinced of it. Don't think twice about doing it.

#3743 4 years ago

Where do you get it?

#3746 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

I knew I should have asked before starting this. That will take a while to get here. So it will probably go into the next round.

And after just laying them into the game to see them with the new LEDs, I really like the look of the Pinbits protectors. I've never really cared for the color of the left one on most machines, but People usually have cool white bulbs. On mine I went with yellow under it, and warm white in the top of the sling. She's gonna look sharp.

#3747 4 years ago
Quoted from Gov:

I got mine from pinballcenterflank.com. The customer service sucks balls but but the shipping is reasonable.

Dave, I have one spare clear disc, I can send it out to you but I'd need it replaced in the near future. Let me know..... You can put your game back together, just need to pull that motor assembly out from the bottom of the Pf, easy stuff

#3749 4 years ago

Dang, $24 shipped for that thing huh?

#3750 4 years ago

here is my interpretation of the identity disc in a plunger knob, you could print in the polished grey steel and then paint a light aqua blue in the grooves to get that classic similar look. The knob is 1 1/2 inches at the maximum diameter.
