Quoted from TimeBandit:

I totally get the popular view on this. This is one pro that stands tall, very tall, when compared to its LE brother. The other side of the mirror though is this.. Ask an LE owner if they would trade to a modded pro for some extra cash?
No

Yup

Dudes, I just realized how there was such a viral market for TRON. I spotted my badge the other night and I was going to make it a promo plastic key chain. I took a look at it and found a cool website for the events of TRON.

I just 'accidentally' won a Kevin Flynn deluxe disc off ebay...question now will be do I open it or keep it in package? :\

This is STILL my favourite use of pinball browser across all my machines. Hard to beat a bit of Jean Michel Jarre. The disc battle music was always the big letdown for me.

#4309 3 years ago

Picked up last week, Gotta admit I love this game. Bought it for my sons but I'm addicted!

The game is crack cocaine ... Both from a gameplay perspective as well as a modding perspective .

Dear Tron Pinball Superfans,

I'm looking for a good LED flasher to replace the one to the right of arcade scoop on Tron. I want it to be more noticeable when Sea of Simulation or the End of Line jackpots are ready. Thinking something orange since I've got the orange ZEN plastic protector there. Any recommendations?

I actually kept mine incandescent. It's the only bulb that is on my game. It reminds me of the original Flynn arcade sign, even thoUgh the original sign is neon, it looks incandescent from a certain point of view.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

I did too, have a blue one there. Didnt like a super bright led flasher there. After playing it so many times I always know when that scoop is ready.

I kept mine also incandescent after trying various led flashers. The incandescent has a nice afterglow with a real nice dim. The led is more like on and off.

#4316 3 years ago

Yet another vote for incandescent here. I only have two incandescent bulbs in all of my machines. This one and the ringwraith in Lotr.

Centerflank -
I would like to hear your opinion (compare/contrast to Tron) on Borg's other games - Iron Man in particular...
Thanks

#4318 3 years ago

The exposure of this particular lamp is too direct to the eye. And could burn your eyes if looked directly at

Tron ~ Ironman.....both short ball time games, layout not cluttered with too many things to slow gameplay down. I always disable pop up posts in the outer loop (I did Metallica that way too). Excellent Audio on both, code is great on both, strong themes for both. Ive had 2 ironmans and sold, would buy a 3rd.....TRON has never left the building. TRON just hit the sweet spot for me.

Every category Ive mentioned, I think TRON has an edge over IM. TRON has the better artwork package too but I don't think either has awesome pf artwork, just good enough to not be a distraction.

I don't think they play anything alike though, Ive always been able to really immerse myself into the gameplay of both and never thought they had any real similarities once your fingers are on the flipper buttons. I do like that both have reasonably "easy" modes to progress through to get to mini-wizard modes.

Did that help?

#4320 3 years ago

Thanks guys. Maybe a blue incandescent is the way to go. Bet that'd look great.

I did exactly that. Looks great. I alternate between the blue and natural. Sometimes I find the blue doesn't stand out enough, and I currently have a natural in for that reason but the blue is definitely more interesting/cooler.

The Lamp is cunning, don't fall for its tricks

#4325 3 years ago

I've always thought the spinners on Tron are a wasted opportunity, especially the one on the Quorra shot which plays a significant part in the game. Has anyone done anything to the spinners to make them more noticeable? They are very dark and I don't believe anyone would even know they are there until pointed out.

I'm thinking of doing 'something' with them, but wondered if anyone has already trodden down that path...

That's a good lookin lamp, I'm thinking a nice incandescent bulb should go in it

Agreed....the shading on the wall and partial "cloth/ clothing(?)" on the bottom right makes it all fit nicely. Per flank's advise, I'm refraining from staring at it (too much, anyway)....

Well said. I love both of them. Which one I play depends totally on my mood.
