Does anybody have the rom with the custom tunes in it? If so could you shoot me a p.m.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

Holy mother of god...I've just hooked up the sub :O

I have said before...

Quoted from TimeBandit:

LCMB is the one MB in all of pinball where the act of starting it is more gratifying than getting it, but ONLY if there is a sub hooked up to it. If there is a pinball god, this is the moment where one stops, reflects and gives thanks for pinball.

Ha, when I had the 3 polk subs hooked up on TRON I couldn't have the volume up to loud when LCM started, almost knocked the bar glasses off the shelf.

Does anyone have a list of all their LEDS they put in their machines....there are so many options that It would be awesome to see what people have done with a complete list. I'm probably the last guy left with an unmodded Tron

I just did mine, but I winged it. I matched the plastic protectors down low (blue on the right, yellow on the left) with a warm white under the left sling (wanted it a speck brighter). Carried blue and orange up the middle, and warm white at the top. Then I swapped out any of the white I could see a bare bulb of to blue or orange. I kept all the inserts as incandescent.

Now I'm sure all that sounds like blasphemy, but I'm strange about lights in my games. I started with cool white, but didn't like the look. Plus my eyes can be very sensitive to the strobing effect of LEDs in inserts. So I went with what I thought looked good... And it's my game

Oh, and Eli's ramp kit. I found it a pain to put in, but WOW. That and a sub are the must haves in Tron.

#4056 3 years ago

I posted this once Befote but can't find it. Tron is returning to line up. I saved the old Code from mine on a flash drive. When Tron arrives how do I put my new code in ?

Thanks !

looks great, thanks for sharing.

#4059 3 years ago

Received the rest of the three clear 120buckets today, I pm'd everyone who was on my wait list so if I didn't message you tonight and you still want one send me a reminder....sorry if I missed you, been crazy busy working the past week.

I now have 6 clear/6 blue (discs) ready to ship.

Clear 120buckets.....I don't know whats up with those, I cant even add any to my shopping cart so maybe they are on backorder?

Here is my favorite as you get to listen to Pete's soothing voice.

#4061 3 years ago

I put a new GC score up tonight and drained before making the scoop for Portal.

#4062 3 years ago

You guys kick my butt. I was feeling good about 69 million that included ~20 million Sea of Simulation bonus. Anybody else hate Quorra shot to Gem shot to SDTM? What a buzzkill......

#4063 3 years ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

..Anybody else hate Quorra shot to Gem shot to SDTM? What a buzzkill......

I usually just nail em both and give her a little smack to keep it lively....in the pops

#4064 3 years ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

One thing you can do to help this is put a slightly thicker post sleeve on that post right above the pop bumps, might direct it toward your left flipper a little better.

You mean successful Gem then through the pops without hitting then DTM? Yeah that SUCKS donkey balls. That is the meanest drain in all of pinball. I have adjusted level to try and address it, but usually just try and always nudge the hell out of it through the pops to try and get some contact, any contact, please, somebody help me, just one little touch of the bumper, how can you be so cruel, I just pulled off the greatest combo there is and you're DRAINING me for it!!!?? Aaarrrrgghhhh you &;$%*^&->£€|!!!!!!

Flank.....scores like this should be banned from your thread... ....haven't cracked 100 million yet....I know I suck, but to put it right in our faces....

Yeah but he still has the stock ramp vehicle toys in so I kinda feel bad for him.

#4068 3 years ago

I can't even crack 50 million, and I'm an ok player. I've gotten to sos, but that's it. I'm guessing it's big points after that?

Yeah those are a bitch, I'm finally getting Quarry but Gem I'm not even close to hitting. That's a bounce off something else and pray it goes to Gem

Whew.....thanks for finding a positive in there for me....depression was setting in....was going to have to suppress w more beer, but have to work tomorrow....

#4071 3 years ago

This was 20 months ago!
I have not got anywhere near it since. What an awesome machine that once you get a great score, there is no way that you feel like you have beaten it. It just continues to own you.

My best, this was during the black pad days, since getting the clear disc my best is a paltry 154mill

Should have known......some day, I will make the 100 mil club, or the glass is coming off!!!

I remember that game as well, completed all the modes going into SOS which skips it, gives you 50mill and starts portal. I was so F'd up from that, I quickly tanked portal.

Waiting for colourDMD to colour Tron this year. I mean, who would buy a solid blue DMD when they could have a fully coloured one instead......... Oh wait, never mind

Is that a certain thing? Ive debated on what I would do if that ever happened, I really like the blue.....I dont think I want to drop another 4 Hundy on that with a perfectly good working DMD.

Im trying to save up to buy my grail pin Hardbody, anyone ever come across a NIB let me know!

Yes ColorDMD announced TRON earlier this year as getting the colour treatment. Just throw the blue DMD in Metallica and give Tron the colour it deserves

But the Tron world is only three colours, black, blue and orange. Image search...

and white - not sure about any others though.

EDIT: oh, and yellow (CLU)

Oh I certainly remember seeing some red and yellow too. That's still three or four more colours then just blue.

#4084 3 years ago

EDIT: oh, and yellow (CLU)

Rizzler or whatever his name is is red and some of the lightcycles were too among other things.

#4085 3 years ago

As much as I love colorDMD and Tron, I honestly think it would be the most underwhelming color DMD treatment.

Are you kidding me. There is yellow and red in those pics

I disagree and I think you will buy one

Probably, haha.

#4089 3 years ago

8 clear rubber 120 bulk buckets ordered, who's all in for these? I know Tdiddy and PaulCoff were up for one and Jazzmaster?..... Chosen_S maybe?

Just remind me via pm, work has been stupid lately and frying my brain.

I also ordered another 10 clear discs just in case.

#4090 3 years ago

I mean why would you spend all that time making the colour changing GI mod for Tron, you know you will and I hope you will and not throw a ColorDMD in it.

#4091 3 years ago

When the time comes and someone swaps out blue for color (and I know several of you will), I'll want that blue DMD...

$600 sold to you! Pm me

^includes autograph^

#4093 3 years ago

OK, but only if you can send it with "Billy16" listed with that Grand Champion score...

#4094 3 years ago

Definitely

#4095 3 years ago

Nice, the autograph is worth $600 alone! Throw in a pic of Mrs. Flank and they would sell like hot cakes!

#4096 3 years ago

What's the bucket?

Edit. Ahh, I found it.

#4097 3 years ago

You put in on your head and run around in the street while banging a wooden spoon on it.

Looking to buy Flynn sign and arcade mod. Best place to get both? Anyone selling an extra?

I'm right there with you. My best is 93M, and I made it to Portal in that game! That was back when I was working on firmware for Eli's ramps, and I was doing a lot of playtesting. I'm lucky to get SOS these days.
