A couple nights ago I finally managed to solidly light all the modes proior to SoS. When I shot the scoop, my score instantly went from something like 80 million to 180 million. Talk about a bonus!

Quoted from centerflank:

If you can light up double scoring before you start SOS you are in business!

I didn't even realize that double scoring was running, but obviously it was. I did it again tonight, but this time I only got a 50 million bonus. The crazy thing is that I almost did it TWICE tonight. The second time, everything was lit solid except for the disc. All I needed was a couple more shots to start disc multiball. Unfortunately, the disk shot out one of those crazy curve balls that went right down the left drain. If I had started disc multiball but failed to get a super jackpot, would there have been a second SoS? This is uncharted territory for me.

I think black mirror blades look awesome on Tron. I bought a set to install in my LE a while back. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough room between the sides of the playfield and the cabinet. Alas, my Tron remains mirror bladeless.

Quoted from TimeBandit:

I think it's the Rogue shot from X-Men. Someone could do a Photoshop flip and see if the geometry is the same. If there is an "accident" in the design, it is probably the rising 3 bank target which gets in the way of the shot. With that target down it feels almost exactly like Rogue off the third flipper, with a similar success rate.

On my Tron LE, Gem way easier to make than Rogue. I've played some Trons, however, where the Gem shot is a lot harder to make than it is on mine. It seems like a tiny variation in the playfield can have a drastic effect on the makeability of the shot.

Quoted from jasonbar:

What's a guy got ta do to restart SOS around here?

You only get one shot at SoS. Once it ends, any remaining modes that still are not lit solid must be completed the normal way. This is what makes Portal so difficult to reach.

I don't know why, but I find the shot through the pop bumpers to be really tough on this game. I needed to make the shot last night to reach Portal, and I couldn't nail it for the life of me. I must have made at least 10 attempts, and I kept just missing. Oddly enough, I don't find the Gem shot to be difficult at all.

Quoted from 30FathomDave:

I was going to install a color DMD tonight, but realized that I can't find the original clear window that was installed prior to when I swapped in a blue DMD. I'm going to search my garage tomorrow, but if I can't locate it, where's the best place to grab a replacement?

Here you go!

Quoted from rai:

Great, I find it hard to continue on with a game if I suck up ball one. Goes to show you never can tell.

That's why I turn off the restart feature on all my games. It forces me to play all three balls, and I'm often delightfully surprised by the result.

Quoted from Guinnesstime:

Made it to portal on a whim today after draining ball 1 immediately at 1,000,000 points. The only reason I kept playing is Light Cycle and CLU were ready.
Wound up completing EVERYTHING and skipped SOS and went right to Portal (awarded 50,000,000 bonus).

Nice! Starting SoS with everything lit solid is awesome. The only thing better is doing it with double scoring running for a cool 100M. I've only ever accomplished this once.

Quoted from Jimmyapple:

Hi everyone. Quick question. Is there a reason not to disable the post on the plunge? Mine seems to work intermittently.

If you hold the left flipper down on the plunge, it will drop the post for the super skill shot to the right ramp. You may be inadvertently doing this on occasion, which is why it appears to be an intermittent issue. I personally see no reason to not disable the post completely. I just don't see the point of it, and you can still go for either skill shot.
