I am officially retiring myself from pinside today. I will still corespond by PM, just no more posting so if you need to get a hold of me please PM me. Thanks.

This kind of post always strikes me as odd. Good for you?

And on topic... I want my Tron back online! I think another night at home should get it back together. I already know she's going to be a lot faster cleaned up and waxed. Amazing how I can miss the game that I'm working on.

Quoted from kporter946286:

I have the Eli Ramp mod, isnt' there a way to hook up the Recognizer into that to make it flash. Does anyone out there have a Recognizer that does more than shine 24/7? Here is what I want it to do. » YouTube video

I just got a pro and made my own with a six cell LED block, I just soldered it on with the 44 flasher on the recognizer insert.

Yep, well, the Luci rerun thread too!

I really want them to run Luci again so I can glue on quorra heads on all the artwork,

Quoted from kidchrisso:

When does doing that make it flash? Like when the video I posted flashes? Does it come on and stay on during the mode? and go off after the ball drains?

#3809 4 years ago

Mine is only on when the recognizer moves. If you want that and assuming you have a pro seems like you could do something similar by checking the state of the target bank or recognizer insert

Honestly if I hadn't already bought the mod I'd just as soon do it like kidchrisso's though. The LED strips seem perfect for this.

#3810 4 years ago

Mmmmmmm. Brand new waxy Tron balls...

Yes, it does flash on and off, on the pro there are 2 bulbs under the recognizer insert, not sure on the LE.

I like to tumble all my balls now, nothing better than extra ooh shiny balls.

#3814 4 years ago

Slick and fast. The way Dave likes it.

The problem for me is, I'm already a two pump chump for half of my games on Tron.

#3816 4 years ago

Right back where she belongs. Now I have to admit, I pussed out. I freaked out when I went to drill the ramps, so the ramp lights aren't in yet. I'm going to farm that out to a tech who does amazing work to make sure it isn't a hack job (kick me out of the club if you have to, but I wanted to make sure they look good).

But oh my goodness, it's fast now. It feels like a brand new game. Nice and bright with the new lights, and everything is flying. Time to put some games on it!

#3817 4 years ago

It's not bad Dave, just grab a sharp drill bit and have at it, it's pretty tough to mess it up. Just have some shrink tubing to cover the fiber under the pf

So it blinks in attract mode. What does it do during game play?

#3819 4 years ago
Quoted from kporter946286:

So it blinks in attract mode. What does it do during game play?

Every aspect of gameplay is explained in the colors of the ramp lights. For the most part 80% of the LE colors/effects are the same but 20% are new or different.

Every mode lites the ramps the color of their insert when started.
Quorra spins lite the ramps green ZUSE spins lite the ramps WHITE for a time.
Recognizer hits flash the ramp RED.
DISC BATTLE lights the ramps a deep blue.
Light cycle battles have 1 ramp lit BLUE and the other ramp lit YELLOW to mimic the LS battle
EXTRA ball has a different color, kind of orangish yellow.
DOUBLE scoring has purple pulsing ramp effects
SOS follows the insert colors as you progress
End of ball fires the ramps in the color of the progress ladder inserts along with the music.
FLYNN is a new effect that lights a magenta color and extinguishes when you FIND FLYNN
PORTAL also has a new pulsating effect during this mode.
18 second end of game RAMP lighting effect
ATTRACT mode has a cycling of the colors

These are off the top of head, there are more, but its been a while since I did the beta testing. I can confirm effects if you have specific questions.

This was the thread that started it all....

Is there a 'complete' comparison matrix between the LE and PRO versions that someone has put together?

Its fine, typical thursday night around here.

#3829 4 years ago

Alright, Im going to do $12.00per + actual shipping charge. I have 5 sold (I think) so pm me with your address unless you have contacted me already and paypal gift is my preferred payment method.

I know you guys think you can draw out your own glory hole's but its not an official TRON GH if you don't use these.

Thanks!

This will be super handy to keep in the wallet for those airport layovers. PM sent!

I believe I have 9 of the 10 spoken for, who wants the last one? Pm with full shipping addy. I'll get them packaged up this weekend and get back with total due, shipping Monday if you've paid by then.

#3834 4 years ago

All sold out. Should I order more or you guys want to take care of that, I'm addicted to changing my games over to the clear/translucent rubbers!

#3835 4 years ago

Thanks a TrON!

Sorry Man, I guess I can see how my comment sounded douchy. I didn't mean anything by it. Just was asking. I am excited to get this Recognizer kicking ass and trying to collect as much info as possible!

where is this being placed ?

Its the clear rubber disc replacement for the subpar black disc pad that comes stock on all TRON's

It grips the ball like a white knuckler and adds a ton of excitement to your pin

Cool, I'll take one if you do another run, my LE came from Odin, I'm sure he put one on it, but I'm thinking it may have lost some grip recently

The light shines through nicely if you have the clear disc. Best benefit is you don't get black marks all over your PF.

If it was O-dins I'm guessing it doesn't have it, he is too busy fixing the screen doors on his house.

I'll order another ten discs from the Germans, maybe I'll get a few blue ones too this time.

#3842 4 years ago

I'd really appreciate a step by step guide to replacing the black disc with the clear. What glues do i need, tools, etc.

Got 2 clear discs sitting here ready to go on - and lots of black marks from the old disc making things worse!

#3843 4 years ago

I am in for 1 or 2 clear discs if you get another order in.

Thanks

Lol, Odins a great guy, he warmed my baby TRON up for me until it was my turn

Yes sir, if blue is an option, I'm in, might as well do 2 blue ones.

I do have a clear ring

Oh yes... By the way, if you google "TRON glory hole" there are some quite interesting references out there, ROFL

#3846 4 years ago

Sounds like a few more people want the discs so Im going to order 10 clear and 5 blue.

I can do 1 disc for $13 shipped and 2 discs for $25. Blue and clear are the same price.

Any other requests for their transparent rubber rings?

***EDIT- I should add if you are not in the lower 48 US the shipping would be a little more than $1***

#3847 4 years ago

I'm in for a clear disc and a blue I just got a Tron yesterday

*If this doesn't sound right to anyone please correct me, its been awhile since I removed my motor*

Main thing you will need are some nut drivers

Unknown.jpeg

1) You will want to remove the entire disc motor assembly from the bottom of the PF, there are a couple flasher sockets in the way, just loosen the screws so you can rotate them out the way.

2) There are 4 nuts securing the motor so remove those, unhook the wire clip and you are ready to rock.

3) Heat up the old black rubber pad with a heat gun (Quartergrabber told me he did this and it worked great) and remove it all and clean the crap out of it, run it through an ultrasonic if you have one or wash real good with some dish detergent. You want a good clean bonding surface for the new disc.

4) If your disc is broken or you just want to put a new one on there are 3 phillips head screws under the black pad to remove it from the motor assembly

5) I highly recommend some sort of adhesive spray when you install the new clear pad, place the new pads face down on some wax paper or whatever and spray the already slightly sticky side of them, hitting the side edges real nicely too

That should cover everything from best I recall, Good Luck!

#3850 4 years ago

Definitely don't go cheap on the adhesive. I've read plenty of posts of guys saying that their clear rubber came off. I've had mine on for about 750 plays and have had no problems with it. It's so nice not having those black skid marks anymore.
