Hey-any of you guys Metallica owners? I have a speaker grill decal with the crosses I no longer need. It matches those creeping death inner cabinet wall decals.

Free for you, just cover shipping, shoot me a pm.

I'll upload a pic if needed but it's for the old style back box with square speaker cutouts.

Edit------tentatively gone.......

Quoted from MK6PIN:

Clear disc immediately!!!

I have one on the way along with a transparent rubber set.

Quoted from MK6PIN:

Nice looking machine, btw!!!

Thanks

Quoted from MK6PIN:

There's also a real cool, animated backbox light kit for the 3D translight ...just can't remember where I got the damn thing...black mirror pin blasé look great, too...

I will look into that. I have standard mirror blades fitted already.

Will there be a re run of Tron?
According to Todd from tnt,

@30m,25s

#4854 3 years ago

Does anyone have the Hallmark light cycles wired into the inserts? Is it safe or will it blow the leds, running them at 6.3v instead of 4.5v that they originally were with batteries?

#4855 3 years ago

Yes, it will burnout the LEDs in the LightCycles from what I've read. You'll need to add resistors to lower the voltage. Mine were done by Kim Keist @ Kimball. I've had them for 3+ years now and they still work great!

Also, Kim helped get some heavy duty resistors to slow down the spinning motor. The grip of the translucent rubber is just way too much causing balls to become airborne and hit the glass. Those also worked out really well!

#4864 3 years ago

Finished shopping the game out the other night. Decided to play it this morning....just how ridiculous this game was... 1st ball ended with 8x bonus to the tune of 45 million points, just on bonus. 2nd ball ended with everything lit solid except for Quorra and Lightcycle, and Quorra lit at the scoop, and had already collected the extra ball. Extra ball plunge to scoop, start Quorra. I immediately go for the "prequalify add a ball" by getting two quick hits, then let the balls drain, going for soft-plunge to gem. Didn't get it with two balls.....hit the bank, let them drain. Didn't get it with three balls, lit up the bank, and right as I'm going to make the last add a ball for four balls, two of them go out the left outlane. I hit the bank and start the 4th ball, kicks on the ball saver, and get all 4 balls in play. Shortplunge-o-rama, there's a traffic jam up by the post, and the last ball plunged lands on top of one of the other balls and pushes it into the Gem lane. SCORE! Only had lightcycle left at this point, so I'm getting things under control, have 3 balls still in play. Only cycle inserts left are left ramp and left orbit. Cool. Flail around at the ramp, lose the 3rd ball, down to 2. Cradle separation, shot the ramp, staged the upper left flipper and shot the orbit, then shot the scoop immediately with the ball from the left flipper to start lightcycle. Got the 3-way combo pretty quick after that. At this point everything is lit solid, I still have two balls in play, might as well go for it, right? I start beating the crap out of the TRON targets trying to light double scoring.....FAIL. Lost both balls. Start ball 3, plunge to scoop for Portal and get my sad little 50 million bonus points.

Had to leave for work, so I drained out intentionally after Portal and finished with around 155 million...good enough for the 2nd place score since the last time I changed the music.

Yes well....I'll see if I can do better. I really SHOULD have had the double scoring active for 100 mil bonus instead of the 50. I was too afraid of losing that last ball. I really want to get a recording rig and video one of these monster games on my machine at some point. It's ridiculously fast right now. There was one time my wife was standing there during that game where the ball came out of the disc so fast that I actually flipped on instinct and didn't see where the ball was until it bounced off the left flipper. More than once it came out of there with so much spin it changed directions TWICE from side to side.

Just checked my game.. 210, 177, 163 (today) million are my top scores since whenever I messed with things last.

*edit* Just got 129 for the next one..bumped something down. SOS start with double scoring running... 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 million to start. Finished disc in SOS but at single value, never finished lightcycle even though I restarted it TWICE on ball 3.

For those without the Quorra and Gem translite but would like to see more of them, these are sized to print on 4x6 photo paper set to "no edge bleed" or "fit image to paper" on your printer:

That's odd, I was just on there the other day just looking. I didn't try to add any to my shopping cart......maybe stern bought them all up for the vault that will ship with puppies in the cabinet.

I went back and forth on LED colors on the slingshot area. I didn't like using yellows on the left and blues on the right because it seemed to wash out all other colors that weren't yellow and blue. But using white LED's seem to make everything too faded rather than vibrant.

This seemed to be an excellent compromise and I thought some people might like to try this as a third option. The 2nd picture shows the LED colors that I selected for each location.

I went your route on outlanes, but went solid orange and blue on slings....now change that black sling rubber to translucent and watch it come to life.....

Personally, I'm waiting to see if Super Bands comes out with their lineup of transparent rings. The Super Band flipper rubbers are sometimes criticized for being too "dead", but my experience is that the Super Posts are bouncier than black rubbers.

I think fully transparent rings could look really good on Tron.
