Quoted from djb_rh:

Alright, here's my first semi-original mod. I took Kimball's backboard mod for the TRON LE and re-did the sequencer section. His sequencer is a ten circuit deal that doesn't fade, it's just on or off. I've been playing with Arduinos for things lately and noticed they have five PWM outputs, so I decided to rewire my board to have two stacks of five LED outputs (so the bottom is on with the sixth in the stack, then the second with the seventh, etc). Kimball's sequencer is common ground and to make things easier with the Arduino and my FET shield I needed common power, so I just rewired it that way while I was "restacking" it.
Here's a pic of my additional hardware:

It's an Arduino Pro Micro. Could have just as easily been the cheaper Arduino Pro Mini, but it's what I had at the time. On top is this shield:
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9627
I had to do one crazy little hack to get the fifth PWM output routed through one of the FETs as by default you only get four of those with this shield, but it wasn't bad. So all-in my hardware cost on this is about $40. But if you used an eBay pro-mini clone and built your own FET board, you could do this for less than $20 in hardware. I'd go that route next time, personally.
Then a little bit of software for the Arduino and it's going:
» YouTube video
I should have done longer shots of each thing running, but you'll just have to re-play the video a few times to see the subtle, but I think worthwhile, difference. The only change I might still make is to double up the short strips at the top of the light column, as they wash out a little bit due to the hologram.

Quoted from centerflank:

I think the voting is over but funny how TRON won that march madness voting a few months ago then cant crack the top 8 against the B/W titles. Id take TRON over any B/W title in a heartbeat, yes, even my lowbrow pro version....
I found it extremely amusing in the other thread, AC/DC barely stopped to wipe its muddy boots off on Woz before advancing.

I voted TRON and don't believe it lost.....and truthfully, no way AC/DC is THAT MUCH better than WOZ....just politics to the max....

#2390 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Well, yeah, AC/DC is that much better with "fewer toys". Things that make ya go Hmm....

Nah, and I'm the weird one that likes TRON better than AC/DC !!!

#2391 5 years ago

Finally have my TRONLE , so I'm in the club, and for me, it's better than any stern. WOZ is just a different animal, and if you look past the crazy threads and play the thing, it really is cool, just different....

Yep.....sort of sad how I suck so bad at the hobby I really enjoy (but convince myself I'm getting better with a good game here and there).....a sort of self induced denial of sorts I suppose.....

Lately, it's been TRON and WOZ.....I just cant get past go...pisses me off nightly, but I keep pushing the button....

Noooooooooooooo!!!!

#2651 4 years ago
Quoted from bjorg:

Quick general question. I installed the clear disc below the recognizer, which looks really great when the flashers below go off. However, that disc has an insane amount of grip and ejects the ball at very unsafe speeds. Any recommendations on how I could slow down the rotational speed of it?

mine's been in for around 4 months...still pretty speedy....make sure you've got your plastic protectors installed...all I've got advise wise......

Mine has come out w so much back spin, it will go half way down the pipe (SDTM), then turn around and go all the way through right ramp....scary and cool at the same time!!!!

Flank and gang, check this out.....ordered 1/2 size ( 18.5x27) movie poster of TRON Legacy. Advertised as two sided ( inverted image on back) to make colors deeper. Got it, and was actually 2different pictures...threw it in the lightbox for kicks.....and looks cool as shit ( sort of)....

Quoted from Frax:

Yes, the PIG2 does the pulsing effect, and turns it down and solid lit when it drops down. The LEDs I used on my original one are just normal strips of NON waterproof 5050 SMD LEDs....commonly available about damn near everywhere. I would have to check to see if I used LEDs they sent me or not. I honestly don't remember, but there shouldn't be much variance in 12v blue LEDs really. Dumb question, but your blue strip is connected to the *flasher* socket under the TRON insert, right?
I provided them plenty of pictures for the install? There was at least one pic for every step....
aaaaand...I don't see them anywhere on the site. I'll talk to them about it. At least have them put up the video link.

I'm trying to get an alternating pulse out of the PIG2 ...have one strip of orange, and one strip of blue (under and backbox) can't figure out how to get them to alternate....right now, I've got the orange pulsing, and blue unplugged(they are both triggered for flashing too)...any insight?...thanks....mark

#3053 4 years ago

outs 1 - orange pulse, 2- orange flash, 3 - blue pulse, 4- blue flash....I've messed w delay times/ length of pulse, but can't get them to alternate (they pulse simultaneously).....

#3055 4 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

Sorry, this is specifically for the Recognizer bank, or something else?
The "flash" function on the recognizer mod is NOT controlled by the PIG2 at all...the blue strip on it is completely independent.. it's wired into the insert flasher.

Sorry....yes a bit off topic....this is for my TRONLE, as well...just wasn't sure if you had dabbled in alternating pulses....Mike is trying to set it up on his bench....saw the thread and decided to reach out....thanks.....

#3057 4 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

No, I haven't, because I didn't want to use all my inputs and outputs just to control one mod.
I don't know that there'd be a good way to do this without there being some additional logic in the PIG2's ability set. It's easy enough to have one thing turn on and another turn off with the same switch, but having them both be on and alternating...well.... not so simple. As you've seen, fiddling with the delays to try and make it appear it's doing something complex like that is not very easy.
I dunno if he's using a FPGA for the PIG2 or what...if he is, there might be more room to expand the command set to have an instruction that would be like
ON SWITCH -> Activate Mod 1 and Mod2 -> Play defined effect 1 time for mod 1, then 1 time for mod 2 -> Go to end, or cycle as appropriate.
IF this was implementable, I'd suggest a "MULTIMOD=" flag name for the config file, where the configuration would just be the output port numbers. So 1234 would cycle each port in sequence with the defined effect before terminating the loop or repeating. 13 would do port 1 and port 3, etc...

Exactly.....I'm pulling the flashers up ( can free up 2 of the outputs) then thinking about using triggers of sort to start one pulse cycle, then the other ( have 1 and 3 inverted to keep the pulse going)...tinkering, tinkering....thanks for the suggestions....

Quoted from TimeBandit:

This sort of thing?
» YouTube video

Close...I have one strip of orange and one strip of blue under cabinet and back box...I want them to continually alternate pulse ( minimal overlap)....already tied them into individual flash circuits for game play, but a pulsing TRON will simply look badass!!!

#3086 4 years ago

Was playing mine last night.....had a shot come out of the clear disc w so much spin, it fired STTM, into the apron ( was sure I lost it) and came right back out and into the scoop!!! Unbelievable action on some of those shots!!! ( I was not drinking, btw...actually happened)..

#3091 4 years ago
Quoted from ryanwanger:

The ball does occasionally change direction and start traveling *up* the playfield without having contacted anything, right?

Big time, coming out of the disc!!! I've had them come out, go about half way towards the drain, and shoot up the right ramp a few times!!! The clear one really puts action on the ball....

Always thought magnets made the ball do the strangest things....this is very close....

Quoted from Darth_Chris:

Since Steve installed it himself and I never got to see the pin before the Refinery job I can't honestly tell you. Contact Steve directly sure he will provide more details.

Got mine installed last night, and looks sick!!! The UV makes the back third of the playfield " glow" in a cool way ( and varies in intensity as it's tied into the blue flashers on back panel)...REALLY adds a dynamic feel to the mode.....

Only drawback is it will make you take your eye off the ball to watch the interaction....massive drainage follows shortly.

I'll post some video in action tonight so you can see it, as long as there is no blatant reference to how bad I suck at the game!!!...mark

Hmm...maybe I'll shoot the video, and have my Son play.....

#3196 4 years ago

Here's video ( rookie on iPad) of the Battle UV mod offered by Chris @ pinball refinery on my TRONLE . It really creates a cool look, as the entire back area sort of glows w light....a nice "theme changer" without being too much ( uv LEDS are mounted on wood above glass channel firing down, so you don't see them at all...nice)....like it a lot!!!...mark

#3198 4 years ago
Quoted from jasonbar:

Thanks for posting & for the video. Can you please explain what's in the kit?
Thanks,
-Jason

Hi Jason,

The video is definitely only for reference , as the effect looks ALOT better in person during gameplay. I really had no idea how interactive the blue backboard flashers are with the game!!!

The kit itself is a custom, UV LED strip, wiring, and connector to replace existing interconnect for the blue flash circuit. Install is very easy. I did inquire about price ( seemed a little high) but Chris explained the UV strips are about 2.5x more expensive than the usual colors. They ( pinball refinery) have always been good to me, and am confident you will be blown away w the effect...truly adds a " scene" effect to several battle modes of the game...mark

Quoted from VolunteerPin:

So, I have a clear Tron disc sitting in my cabinet. Have yet to put it on due to some of the previous flaking issues folks have had.
If I put it on, I'm thinking about buying a new plastic disc http://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=2539 to do a fresh install of the clear rubber with some 3M spray adhesive.
Any thoughts on this plan and the clear disc in general?

Definitely put it on!!!.....mine stays on fine, but original black came of clean....just used alcohol and elbow grease to make sure surface was totally ready....new disc may not be a bad idea....

#3239 4 years ago
Quoted from VolunteerPin:

So, is it safe to say a fresh plastic disc and just use the adhesive on the rubber is the way to go?

13 year old Danni went all the way to Portal on ball one tonight.
She *almost* did it without using SOS .. She had everything solid except Disc MB ... So she used SOS to clean that up.
Portal didn't last long ... But she hit GEM 11x on ball one so she got a massive 11x bonus of 38,000,000 odd. Nice one.

super rubbers

Already living there...( orange and blue of course) ....hard to describe....game is so addicting, it's probably my favorite, but also scares the hell out of me....rules are pretty straightforward, but the game is at such a pace, I can't ever really get ahold of it.

I'll have a "WOZ" night, or "SM" night, etc., where I only play that machine, and can usually make some headway ( comfort level)....

"TRON" nights....lets me in, but can never get to that confidence level....probably move to 5 ball, and start cradling the hell out of balls.....

Make no mistake....I live to beat this thing...

This was 20 months ago!
I have not got anywhere near it since. What an awesome machine that once you get a great score, there is no way that you feel like you have beaten it. It just continues to own you.

Bam!!!....welcome.....great move!!!....

#4268 3 years ago

Just when I thought I'd seen that clear disc throw the ball everywhere ( up the ramps, behind the drops, etc.) got a new one tonight....

Ball came straight out.....went over Portal insert, and stopped dead in place, spun like a perfect top for about 3 seconds, then a bullet sdtm ......game never ceases to amaze.....

( whew , had to edit 5 times to fix my f**king spelling)....geese, not even drinking.....

#4270 3 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Haha! Yes! The replacement disc makes for some crazy ass shit. It truly defies the laws of physics at times.
Non disc related, I hit the outer right orbit with the upper left flipper tonight, thats crazy!

Sometimes I can't track it visually....simply too fast....others, it does some really bizarre shit.....absolute blast to prepare for the unexpected.....

I hit GEM shot TWICE w my upper left flipper last night!!!..decided I could now turn pro....of course that was the end of that...never got the 3rd, or even remotely close to her again...sure I've said it many times in Flank's thread......love TRON.....SUCK at playing it...

#4272 3 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

another reason it just keeps pulling us back

Agreed....seems simple enough....I think for me it's because the game has such a dramatic change of pace....flowy ramps, but the close scoop and disc make the game very hard to maintain pace, and can get blindingly fast in seconds...no magnets or gimmicks....just pure, ass kicking pinball....is what it is.....I'm ignoring it tonight and watching football..( I can feel it mocking me even though it's turned off).....

#4274 3 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

Careful... Tron is widely known for it's jealousy issues.

Been keeping an eye on it as I replenish the beer supply during the game.....it hasn't made a move yet, but if I come down here tomorrow and the TV is broken, I will know straight where to go!!!........

#4276 3 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Just brush your hand gently across the lockdown bar as you walk by so she knows you still love her.

Ha....read my mind....actually took one of my polish cloths, and wiped down the lockdown bar on the way back to the fridge.....not sure if it worked.....she's still acting neglected........

#4278 3 years ago
Quoted from TimeBandit:

I really like that we who love Tron really love the challenge of this shot, whereas the down voters and ranking bashers claim it to be bad design.

Easily one of my favorite parts of gameplay ( weirdly).....most of the time I hit it by luck or a wild spin off the disk...but get on mini rolls where I can hit the upper left flipper from the right lower too.....just to see the screen come up is very satisfying...I can then enjoy the remaining 20 seconds of the game....

Chime in LE owners, how often do you get Daft Punk multi at stock setting?

No need to visit that subject.....like another's comment about changing ramp settings....anything.....easily shortest ball times of any machine I own, but that's what makes it so damn amazing....

#4428 3 years ago
Quoted from Buckman:

And I've left it on 1 completion for Daft Punk and it definitely makes it more achievable. Don't think I'd see it much at all if I had it on 2 completions.
Also forgot I had done that vid of Daft Punk multiball, that's my machine a few posts up!

Loving to hear this!!!!...changing mine tonight when I get home from work.....

#4429 3 years ago

So with all this talk of changing settings, I'm not seeing a daft punk multi ball setting in features menu....says" ver. 1.74 / TRON LE sys 1.63/ hdw.1 " in service menu and see pic of rom below...is all good?image.jpeg

#4432 3 years ago
Quoted from Buckman:

To change it this is all you need to do:
1) Go into the "GAME" adjustments (this is the feature adjustments, 2nd one over on the left).
2) Go to # 19 "1st end of the line M.B. letters" and change it to 1 (default is 2).
You're done!
If you want you can also change feature # 20 which is for second or more times around. Minimum you can set it to is 4 times and I've never managed to start Daft Punk twice in the same game.

Got it...mine was on "2" and "8".....THANK YOU!!!....time to see if I can finally get there.....mark

#4447 3 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

I think we have to normalize the votes by dividing down each by the number manufactured for each.
Then what's the votes look like?
That backs out some of the variable related to quantity of owners who have each pin.

Agreed.....didn't think of it this way.....good point....

Yes, all 3 are great pins, but in comparison TRON has more than stood the test of time.....

For those using a ColorDMD in Tron, what settings are you using. I am waiting for full colorization like everyone else, but in the meantime what are you using for your Sigma color, scaling, brightness, etc. Thanks.

ive got mine on smoothing mode, and tie it in w serial cable to my speaker light kit, so it slowly cycles/fades through rgb (mostly light/dark blue, then purple, a short red/orange) looks badass.....

#4528 3 years ago
Quoted from gripwhip:

Hmmm. That sounds cool. I have a speaker light kit too. I am not sure how to tie them together. Do you have any instructions?

Real easy....they sell the cable that simply plugs into the serial port of the color DMD and speaker light kit...think it was around $12....

#4577 3 years ago
Quoted from CaryCarmichael:

Folks - I'm cash in hand, going to buy my buddy's Tron. Opened out of the box within the past 2 months, I think it's the last edition with cars instead of cycles on the ramps, 500 plays, LED adjustments, just cleaned and re-rubbered. Asking was $6k, I offered $5,800, and he wants to settle on $5,900. What say y'all on the fair price?
He installed a shaker. I'm not a fan of shakers in general, but did y'all install one? Is it beneficial to the game, or should I hock it for ~$100?
I'm really excited! I've wanted this game since it came out, but didn't really have the coin until now.
Just hours to go until it's set up in my place!

Congrats on a great pin!!!....buying from a friend is cool...just do the best you can to keep the deal "business"..a win/ win so you stay friends ....owning a TRON is a win, period.....based on the negotiation you shared, seems like a good deal....enjoy.....join Flank's Club ( oh wait, you're already posting here..)..avoid lamps....and definitely keep the shaker!!!....mark

#4582 3 years ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

It was a stupid good deal, but truly I'm not a new pin buyer. It was a stretch for me to pay anything north of $3K for a pin, but I really like Tron so I waited for the price to come down and I stretched (for me anyways). Does anybody here really think $5900 is a good price for a slightly used, stock Tron Pro? I just don't think so.

Guess my point was.....OP already offered his friend $5800.00 for it, and from what he said, hasn't been played a whole lot, so should be in great shape.....definitely not an amazing deal ( like what you got) but not terrible...plus he's staring at it, meaning no shipping, packing, etc. Probably sink $1k in mods eventually, and enjoy the hell out of it for hopefully a long time...

#4590 3 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

No price is too high for your own Tron pin. Doooooooo it

Super congrats!!!

#4617 3 years ago
Quoted from TimeBandit:

It slows down a bit. I have two Trons with the clear disc and never a broken part. I don't think I've heard of anyone having a broken part from the ball flying. Fair warning, you WILL get addicted to the speed. I keep a supply of fresh discs, so that when it does slow down I can put a new one in and get it back to full fling.

Ditto for me ( only one TRON though)...no broken things ( yet) but major fun !!!....It does slow down a bit over time....I have 3 left...due for a holiday change, I believe

#4619 3 years ago
Quoted from TimeBandit:

And it's not just the speed. Have you noticed the sound it makes when it grabs the ball at full speed?! It's like it's tearing the fabric of spacetime. Freaking awesome.

Absolutely!!!....It's both terrifying and thrilling at the same time.....never experienced such dramatic spin or speed w that disc......Ill hear it slam in the trough, sdtm...( never saw it) or it will go down almost to the flippers, and spin itself back up over the right ramp!!! Major adrenaline rush!!!

#4633 3 years ago
Quoted from monkeyboypaul:

Can anyone think of a valid reason why i shouldn't put 4 ceramic (power) balls in a Tron?
It'd give the 'chaos' call out some additional gravitas. Might also work in AFM.
The cost argument is invalid as we've all derailed our money logic by joining this club.

I just waxed my playfield and put in a new clear disc yesterday on mine.....only valid reason I can give is you may never...ever get a flipper on the ball....machine is so damn brutal as is....I'd never keep up w power balls ( they could be neon green, wouldn't matter)....good luck.....

#4645 3 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

Trying to make room for the new VE

Well....put about 3 hours in, but she wouldn't let me past 83mil last night.....I did drink in excess, so not too bothered.....made it to SOS once towards the end, but couldn't do anything with it ( because I was impaired, and already stated I suck at this game).....

Think the only way I'm going to get traction on a high score is to slow the game down ( cradle and breathe a bit)...but the machine is just too damn fun just taking it on head to head....maybe she lets me in tonight...I LOVE TRON!!!

#4869 3 years ago
Quoted from Frax:

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.

That score is entirely too good to post....congrats, but dammit, I MUST PLAY BETTER!!!!

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 won't tell mine you posted that ( for both of our sakes)....she might say " new hubby time, and who is this Flank guy?"...

Haven't checked for awhile... is there any new way to make the rubber disc shoot the ball faster other than cleaning it with alcohol?

That helped mine a bit, but finally had to change it out after about 1k plays to maximize carnage again....

Quoted from jokerpoker:

Has anyone got the speaker panel decals fitted and if so could you post a pix. Not sure which ones Ive seen look better.
The ministry of pinball has 2 options and Matt's 1 at back alley. It's always a drab area now with the VE sitting next to Tron.
Even with the speaker light kits it still needs something. Maybe Aurich has done something for this?

Oops....realized you wanted speaker panel examples, not speaker light kits....sorry, was drinking ( not a great excuse, as I do that most nights...

Quoted from shimoda:

Just remember that no video will ever do what it looks like in person justice. The color swatches are all taken from the best averages of actual colors used in the film. I, too, thought it looked too blue or whatnot at times, but every time I go to the source, it's right there.

This^^^^^^ 100% of the time.....video never does really bring out the colors like actually seeing it in person.....( actually true of most mods and the machines themselves, now that I think about it.... )

You only have one powered mod? We'll submit this to flank for membership review.

Has to be a misprint....hopefully, he fixes it BEFORE Flank sees this...

Quoted from shimoda:

As the dev my favorite is scan, but plenty of choices. 8-bit is my least favorite though tile looks good as well. I like Dots XL on this one as well.
I will say that I develop all titles using normal Dots.

Thank you for your efforts!!! I'm a scan guy, too (minority, I know)...just enjoy it more (except for certain clips)...have had a Sigma in TRONLE for awhile...anxious to see the colorized version.....

Not that many of you know me personally, but last Saturday night my Dad suffered a rupture in his brain stem and was put on life support. B/c he was an organ donor the process took a few days but He was officially pronounced dead Tuesday and I will be burying him Friday. Reason I bring this up is because he was an Organ donor and even at 77 years old, a Cold Coors light drinking bad boy motor head guy still was able to donate his liver to a 40 year old and kidneys to a 60 year old and help save 2 lives. If your not, you should think about being an organ donor. Its amazing what they can do. And you never know whom you can help save. I've been absent on here the past week and will be for a few more days while I attend to my Fathers' Funeral.

Sorry for your loss.....thanks for posting, though.....will have you in thoughts.....take care....

Alright boys/girls....Rough last 10 days or so...but I think its time to get back on the old Light Cycle and get back to business here. I really appreciate all the kind words and support you guys put out there this last week. Even with 100's of friends and family members being with me for support, you guys really made me smile! Thanks.
Anyways. SO what do you all think?? Is this Color DMD worth 4 Crisp Franklins???

Glad to see you posting.....hope the healing process is going well......I drank heavily on Sunday to do my part to pay homage ( well, I was really just drinking)......and yes, the color DMD is definitely worth it for TRON.....think they are out of stock at the moment.....meaning you must immediately rip one out of your other games and download the rom.....

Think labnip had one for $47k....oh wait, that's his TRONLE...meds kicking in.....

Well first my Dad would be proud of your Sunday night ritual on his behalf!
Second. That is a good point. I am sure I will be buying one sooner than later but, in the mean time TOTAN can suck it up and donate!

TRONLOGIC at it's finest!!!!!
