Tron rules. I had SOS ready to go tonight as well and drained off freaking disc multiball . . . only 45 mill points but I could have had it rocking too. Did take back my GC score on my DW from fellow Pinsider Jodster tonight . . . so I'm pleased with the evening of pinball action.

Quoted from centerflank:

my lawyer may have to chime in on this for clarification.

Quoted from Trophybeeyautch:

and where is that lawyer??? hmmmm

Sorry Centerflank, your machine leads and retainer only get you so far . . . I could never take your side against Trophy . . . extraordinarily beautiful women that play pinball always win.

#17 6 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

You just damn near earned your first thumbs down from me ever.
edit- but, I gave thumbs up as I do truly enjoy beautiful pin loving lassies...

That's okay; kel heard me laughing and surfed over to pinside to see why . . . I'm in the doghouse now anyway as my penance for my brief treachery.

#19 6 years ago

LOL! Tiger got the Pfft! Boom!

Yes, when the queen gives the pfft that is not usually a good sign. Also, she has the master weapons and she knows it.

Quoted from centerflank:

4) Gem is the tough one to get, Ive gotten better at deflecting off TRON targets into gem and its a much easier shot when the 3recognizer targets are down

This is one reason why the pro is better than the LE. The bank shot is not available on the LE. I've had to harness my skill at plunging for GEM . . . also not easy but with practice and decent nudging you can get it about 50% of the time (maybe a little less).

Quoted from centerflank:

Nah,that was last night, we have an every other night schedule, its the off day. Is that TMI?

It is only TMI if you say something like that is how long it takes her to recover. Ha!

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Are you guys running Cliffys arcade scoop protector?
Just getting a list of things I need for my new Tron.

I think pretty much everyone is using the Cliffy (at least most). The list of mods for this game will blow you away...did you get a NIB one or one that already has some mods?

#743 6 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

Tiger I scored a HUO Tron w/very low plays has... arcade mod 2.1, shaker, Flynn sign, 2 trans lights & Hallmark lighted Cycles that haven't been installed yet (I will be asking for tips on installation soon not sure if wiring them so they are on all the time is best?)

Get PDI or Invisiglass. Tron is a game that really deserves it.

I just got some light cycles from Ditto. I need to install those on mine as well. And my mirror blades that I have had now for six months and haven't installed! Ha!

#752 6 years ago
Quoted from Riffbear:

I Need a hand deciding which to sell. TRON LE or Monster Bash? Hehe

Dump MB all day long. Keep the Tron LE.

Eh, you asked the Tron love thread. Anyone who gives advise other than the above gets tossed out of the thread.

Don't forget the matching jacket and kicks!

LOL, where do you find that? I might wear that next time I go to a local pinball event and spaz everyone out! Ha!

No kidding . . . take AFM to freaking pound town, no way it sniffs Tron's dust and we have some ground to make up.

Just stumbled on this listing on eBay: TRON Pinball Alternate Translite / With adult versions!
ebay.com link » Tron Pinball Alternate Translite With Adult Versions
My machine is at the office, so sadly not an option for me!

That's hysterical. I might buy one for a friends machine and see what happens. Ha!

Quick question for a friend:

How do I change back to the original game music sound tract of someone changed it to the alt sound tract before my friend purchased the game?

Thanks in advance, I sure miss being a member of this club!!!

I'm back in the club baby!!!!!!!

Quoted from MK6PIN:

Yes..." Four horsemen" thread is sidetracking recent action....t

Nah, now that I'm back in the club here everyone just feels more relaxed. Less anxiety.

#5772 3 years ago
Quoted from PaulCoff:

It was a sign from "The Grid". "Who does that" to their Mercedes and why was it outside my house?

I'm pretty sure Centerflank was doing a stake out on you to make sure you weren't selling your Tron.

Quoted from centerflank:

Hmm, I was thinking of using a Scottish tone.

If you write that letter in any language or tone other than Khoisan click you will be demoted to vice chair of this Tron love fest thread.

#5838 3 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

If it's not Scottish its crap!

Alright, you can click with a Scottish accent. We want an audio clip played here though.

#5846 3 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

He sold a TRON once so that immediately disqualifies him for the position of Encom CEO

I confessed my sins directly to the Apron of Destiny and received redemption. The apron will confirm this is true and then you shall face a vote of non-confidence due to your new pledged affinity to the four horsemen.

And fresh EL under my instruction cards.....one badass machine!!!

Wow! I need to do that pronto. Looks amazing!

#5880 3 years ago
Quoted from ZEN:

Well that sums it up. TRONBROS, motion to change thread title to "Tron: Holy Fuckin Motherfucking Fuck Balls"

I love it. Seconded. We will have to figure out a way to sneak it past the mods.

#5881 3 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

TRON is by far the best subwoofer add on game, Ive played quite a few with woofers and nothing has come close.....

I agree, and it's not even close. The shotgun shells on BBH sound superb with a sub but it is still nothing close the start of light cycle multiball.

Quoted from ATLpb:

Lets not talk about how much I could've reduced my mortgage principal or how many hours I had to work- let's just celebrate THE SON OF OUR MAAKKEERR.
here it is in the midst of its single and final ownership transition:

Welcome to the family! An LE to boot! Very nice. You won't regret the purchase for sure.

#6000 3 years ago

You can crush the gem shot with power balls. I need to get one.

#6012 3 years ago
Quoted from rcbrown316:

you need an led ball now in order to see it lol...

Perhaps he is using the glow in the dark power balls.

#6028 3 years ago
Quoted from marcand:

Soooo. What's better? Blue DMD or Color DMD. I have Blue...could go color.

Color DMD. Not even close.

Quoted from Jojo1111:

Oh well. Random tricked out Tron in the wild down here in SOFL.

That is incredible. That pin was owned by a collector at some point, super nice.

Did you put the GC score on it?

#6113 3 years ago

I think the AoD is in an undisclosed location courtesy of the US Postal Service at the moment.

The Gem Chrystal Apron..

Wow! Where did you find that? Very nice!

Quoted from MK6PIN:

SWEET!!!.....congrats and welcome.....

You didn't ask about the clear disk. Tisk tisk, CF will be disappointed when he returns to find all these new members with dark rubber disks.

Quoted from weaverj:

be careful. don't say anything like that outside this thread. i said something similar about The Hobbit. people neg'd me...

Did you say it in a Hobbit thread or in a JJP thread? Tron is widly considered a better game than Hobbit and not just in this thread.

Quoted from MK6PIN:

No one truly leaves the grid, btw....

That is for sure. I just bought a heavily loaded pro last week. Tron becomes the first game to come into my collection three times...

pics to follow after machine pickup.

#9198 42 days ago
Quoted from snaroff:

I moved over to the clear disc without adding a resistor and it’s been a blast with 0 damage. The ball movement is insane...really beyond any mech in any game I’ve ever played. It’s really cool when the spin causes it to nail GEM! No joke. Not trying to convince you, just giving you my experience...

The downside with the clear disc is it will need somewhat frequent replacement.

#9220 37 days ago

Any recommendations for a top flight external subwoofer?

#9222 37 days ago

Thanks. Anything else needed with it to get it connected? Never used a sub before, thinking it’s time with Tron and maybe pick up a second for BSD.

#9230 36 days ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

These sub’s on amazon are a popular choice. I waited for a sale and picked it up for $89.99
amazon.com link »

This makes it easy to connect it

I’m running this setup on my Tron and it’s awesome

Gosh, I forgot how awesome all the Tron people were. Thanks for all the suggestions gang, I went with the above set up, should arrive next Friday just in time for a little pin party my wife and I are hosting. I go and pick up the Tron on Sunday, I'll share some photos of it set up.

#9245 32 days ago

Here are some photos of my Tron. I’ll need to order a topper at some point this year. Are there any suggestions for this? I’m unlikely to make a topper.
