Here's to hoping I join you guys! Voted!

I'm in like Flynn, Baby! Tron will be here in the A.M. Can I get a group bro hug or something?

What do we get with club membership? Is it simply the satisfaction of being awesomer?

Well she landed and it's much better than lamp. Wicked speed, great theme, awesome sounds/music...its even better than sweaty Centerflank pumping iron!

#3229 4 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

Granted, by the narrowest of margins. Congrats Hougie and hook up a sub posthaste

Yeah, I hooked it up to the sub next to Metallica right off the bat. Wicked awesome sound with that extra bass.

#3234 4 years ago

I freaking love this game. The speed/flow/sounds are right up my alley. THIS is the game I've been looking for!

#3260 4 years ago

I just got my ramp kit and installed it. Up until this point I didn't truly understand the glow of electric sex under the playfield glass. It's a beaut, Clark.

Quoted from Frax:

I'm not looking foward to doing a playfield swap on Tron...having to move all the ramp lights and stuff.. =P

Do you have one that's that rough?

I made it to portal last night for the first time. Total adrenaline rush.

I just can't get enough Tron. It may officially be my favorite game.

Does anybody have a link for the diy recognizer lighting? I can't find the thread...and I must mod.. I think I am sick.

Do you guys prefer the chrome or black pop caps from Hooked? I have been thinking about picking some up.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

The edot, and the Pole Position cockpit can be stood on their front or back end and it can be maneuvered more easily geometrically. At least thats how my Pole Position works

Seems legit. That said, I'm not sure where the cockpit is, or all of this business about poles and their position..

#3614 4 years ago

Maybe this:

Finally tore up an led and lit up my recognizer. I really like the extra bit of light right there.IMG_20150619_151450468.jpg

#3635 4 years ago

You can tell I have seen The Big Lebowski too many times, because I want to throw "man" after every Bridges callout. For a few weeks I thought he was saying "F-ing spectacular arenas" then I realized it was "fought in"

#3675 4 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Double tapping gem off the skill shot is the best feeling ever in pinball.

Does anybody have a video of how this works? Or is this just stuff of legend? An illustration would also do.

Speaking of immature interpretations, I swear that I heard something about "three way" during Quorra mode. Am I going crazy, craving Skyline Chili, or...?

Edit: It's probably "Freeway", but that totally sucks in comparison to the other interpretations.

Quoted from centerflank:

Chilling out at a church festival and found the one guy that loves lampimage.jpg

So misguided. He doesn't realize what he's missing.

Slick and fast. The way Dave likes it.

The problem for me is, I'm already a two pump chump for half of my games on Tron.

#3825 4 years ago

They are awfully small.

#3855 4 years ago

I'll take a clear disc.

#3960 4 years ago
Quoted from Chosen_S:

If I were to seek out an extra plastic disc, where do we find those?

Pinball Life has them in stock.

#4023 4 years ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

I just got my unmodded Tron yesterday night at 9pm so today is Tron love day.
437858.jpg
Just ordered Red tremor Shaker, Light Cycle Mod Kit, Brocks REcognizer decal, Recognozier Mod, Cliffy's and Pinbits plastic protectors.... I know i will need the Arcade Mod and the EL wire and LEDS... am I missing anything else, perhaps the black mirror blades?
And PS Ill take that disc if both of you dont want it CF and Quatergrabber

Man, Tron just doesn't look right with incandescents.

#4026 4 years ago

I keep going back and forth about the arcade mod. It seems so expensive for what it is, imo.

What order of importance do you guys stack the mods?

For me:
1 - Eli Ramps
2 - LEDs
3 - External sub
4 - Light Cycles
5 - Shaker
6 - ....

#4046 4 years ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

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

Yeah, man. Try unhooking it in a couple of weeks. You will be amazed all over again when you hook it back up.

#4050 4 years ago

I made it to Portal for the 2nd or 3rd time tonight. The score was only 93 mil but man, what a rush.

#4051 4 years ago

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

#4063 4 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

Here are the Titan translucent rings. They look awesome when lit up.

Tomdotcom said the same thing in the Titan thread, lol. Trust me, you will want to redo them

I almost got portal two games in a row today. I had a portal run this afternoon. I choked hard. The Portal bonus was like 3mil...

Just a few minutes ago, I played again and was two shots away from starting portal. Freaking light cycle mb can suck it...

#4217 4 years ago

Yes, it's o.d. I went ahead and put together a corrected kit on there. That other one was also missing the post sleeves.

Quoted from marcd:

I asked the same thing to Stern. Chas told me to put some 123 all purpose oil (a few drops) around the motor shaft. It helped a little.

You should try 3 in 1 instead. I kicks 123's ass.

Quoted from foureyedcharlie:

$5400-5800 is right about what stock HUO TRONs go for? Yeah, they'll never remake this title.

Wouldn't that be the best reason to remake them? If Trons are sustaining a high price for stock games that would mean there is a market, right? Supply and demand.

Well fellas, it's been a while and I must admit that I had short but exciting flings with BSD and GOT but this sexy beast is back in my game room. WTF was I thinking letting her go before?!

Quoted from MK6PIN:

A fitting post ONLY in a TRON thread.....Flank would approve

Quoted from Goronic:

Blantons is getting hard to find now. But yeah Buffalo Trace is becoming my new favorite distillery

Buffalo Trace is my favorite at that price. For a couple bucks more check out Evan Williams Single Barrel. It is my new favorite bourbon. Similar flavor profile between the two but the Evan Williams is a bit sweeter and more smooth. You can't beat either, really.

Quoted from Wamprat:

Tough decision but we only have room for two pins.
I'm thinking Met Pro.

I have those two next to each other and they make an excellent pair.

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Just bought a NIB Tron LE. Should I just open it and use it, or save it?

Keep it in the box until the batteries explode. That's what I would do. There's no sense in actually playing a kick ass game.

#7052 2 years ago
Quoted from jardine:

Can anyone confirm what sort of rubbers they have on their game please guys?? I have what look like clear(white) ones on most of my posts, slings and the like and feel they actually increase the brutality of this game!
They bounce around a lot compared to my other games which have the standard black rubbers. It almost feels like it's increasing the drains as well.
Loving this game but feel the rubbers are really affecting the way it plays. Thoughts??

I love Titan translucents. They are definitely more lively than standard black. That's the best part!

Do they look like these?

Quoted from Superchicken:

I don't. I figure when Borg was working with the whitewood and making adjustments, the bubble would have to be the reference point. If it isn't, Stern should tape a note to the glass explaining what incline the designer intended.

I think the point he was making is that the bubble is not always put in the same place from the factory. I would bet that they rarely are. My Shadow for instance was way off.

#7063 2 years ago
Quoted from DaveH:

Seeing those levels can be slightly different game to game, do you have an exact incline you run at? I'm always interested and compare pitch game to game because I feel every game has a "right" pitch where it plays like a bitch and feels great.

I agree. I will check mine and post here. My Drac didn't feel right until I had it at about 7 degrees.

#7094 2 years ago
Quoted from J85M:

Can anyone confirm the rubbers used on the slings in the photo/post above are Titans? would like to replicate the look on my game.

They are Titan. My kit is under Disney Tron Legacy (third edition) jason h.
