Just had 7 lit (5 in a row!), the other 2 flashing, and drained before I could start SOS. Argh! Just one more game!

Every time I click on this thread I see Centerflank's first post about the double wax coat, and I'm reminded that I really should wax Tron again... Guess it's wax time tonight

Quoted from Rockytop:

I picked up an LE last week and to say I'm loving it would be an understatement. I'm really digging the callouts. I'm tempted to try to make it through a day at work speaking only in Tron callouts

It's fun when you learn the Tron callouts. Given enough beer I start reciting them myself Which, of course, I'm sure my gf loves heh

Quoted from rcbrown316:

Next decision is replacing the orange dmd. i've seen the color but 400 is too much. anyone here have the xpin in white? what do you think?

Dude, if you have a Tron then you're already in for thousands. Why would you cut yourself short over $400 + shipping? The ColorDMD looks awesome man. Zero regrets here. In fact, all of my machines (Tron, Johnny, Simpsons) have ColorDMD and honestly the worst thing you have to worry about is becoming addicted to ColorDMD. Games without color just lose something now

Finally cleaned the pinballs in Tron for the first time after this wax job. Did not realize they would pick up so much of the extra wax! Dirtiest balls ever! OK I obviously used way too much wax too. But man it plays fast

Quoted from herg:

I just made Portal for only my second time since buying the game in 2012. I know it's not a great score compared to some of you guys, but I'm fired up!!!

That's some crazy high score man, what's your strategy for getting there? This is coming from a guy that JUST BARELY beat the default grand master score, keep in mind

Quoted from Grg:

New Tron Remix, makes for a nice change and easy to go back and forth between files. Got a Jimi hendrix one I've been working on for weeks, songs, call outs and DMD. Will publish once finished.

The Beastie Boys mix is epic! I wish mine did that

Quoted from Chosen_S:

Could do the half orange half blue look, pretty cool look for the game.

I say stick with black or chrome. The orange/blue look is great with the LEDs and plastics, but the trim is just too much. I've seen the trim painted half orange/half blue and all it reminded me of was the Goobers pre-mixed PB&J.

Alright guys, just checked the audits on my Tron and was pretty impressed with how close the number of left/right drains were. With 898 total plays, I've racked up 602 left drains and 622 right drains. I'm wondering if those 20 extra right drains were the times I saw the ball hit the Zen switch and still spin/bounce into the outlane somehow

Quoted from Chosen_S:

Nope, not here, but some games, the buttons are crazy tight, maybe sand the hole a little?

There was a folded up beer koozie and a rubber mallet involved when installing mine. They were tight!

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Ok so I got my NIB LE coming Wednesday. It has probably been sitting in the sellers garage for many years. Any advice what I should do when I set it up ? I hope it still works!

I opened a NIB Tron Pro a few years back (2015?) and the rubbers were absolutely dead. I'm guessing you'll be in the same boat. Other than that, show her some respect and wax the playfield before playing!

Quoted from MK6PIN:

I'm just a touch under 7 degrees myself....congrats on your new high score, but please don't post it.....seeing these always make me realize how this machine has truly dominated me for years....took me forever to break 100 million!!!

You broke 100?!? haha... I just barely snagged the GC from the default (GS), and I mean by 20k or something lol.

After four years, finally hit Portal! Machine still plays brutal with only ~1500 plays haha As soon as I hit that lit portal shot, man, I was screaming at the machine “F YOU SUCK IT B@!#%”... Tron won’t respect you unless you are rough with the machine, you understand
