A little birdie told me Lyman is working on the final TRON LE update that is to come (hopefully followed by a Tron Pro update). This is great news!!

SWEET !


2 years, 10 months ago

Awesome. I wonder what will be added?

Video mode?

Pro version: Skill based extra ball award? <--- one of my most frustrating annoyances. Random award? Lamers.

lol yeah an update that will make the EB light work.


2 years, 10 months ago

Video mode, more emphasis on combos (one thing I actually like in TF is the combo count on the DMD) & more depth to the existing modes and a deeper more polished wizard mode would make me an even happier LE owner. If lyman can polish TRON like he did with SM it could be real special!

Isn't this old news? He has been working on it for a while. He has a TRON LE at home.


2 years, 10 months ago

Video mode perhaps when you hit the scoop - only place i can think of where it can play off the DMD / hold the ball.

Please, please, please video mode - none of my pins have one and they havent been done for awhile.


2 years, 10 months ago

No video mode!

What sucks more than stopping a great, fast pinball game to play a 4-bit video game?


2 years, 10 months ago

Please quit hyping up Tron even more. I'm trying to find one at a decent price

Oh, and another vote for NO video mode!

My apologies if it is, I hadn't heard this until the weekend from someone close with Lyman. I'm pretty excited Tron is going to get some Lyman-love!

Light cycle video mode would be cool.
j/k


2 years, 10 months ago

I actually kind of wish that DAFT PUNK was easier to spell. You can't qualify any of the letters during certain times in the game (like multi-ball)....making it super-hard to achieve.

I've only done it a handful of times, and only when that is all I was going for.

Otherwise, make it so that I'm better at hitting GEM. I stink at that shot.

(I'm okay with a video mode. Maybe make a setting to turn it off for people who don't like it?)

Looking Forward for some Update


2 years, 10 months ago

Great!!!!!!


2 years, 10 months ago

I'd love to see a video mode. Hopefully the update will also fix the issue of only half of the game sometimes not turning on when you hit the power switch. Shutting it off and turning it on again fixes it every time, but it would be nice to see it work properly every time.


2 years, 10 months ago

Bring on a video mode! This game deserves one based on the theme and light cycles alone. Having an adjustment to turn it on or off in the operators menu would be great for those who don't care for it.

While I am not big on video modes, I have to say that it seems very appropriate to have one on Tron.

Edit: Kevin beat me my 1 minute!

I thought that the 1.4 update fixed this issue?

Mr. Peepers is going to download in his cab when I tell him the good news...

It took care of the problem for me.


2 years, 10 months ago

Maybe they'll put in a video mode, but with an option to enable/disable it.


2 years, 10 months ago

I'm hoping for a Tron update just like everyone else, but according to Steve Richie at a recent event in the UK he didn't think this was likely.

Just hoping the rumours are true and Steve is wrong

Lyman recently picked up a TRON LE and it's piqued his interest in revising the code.. maybe he'll do it on the side like he did a few other Stern games (here's hoping!!)

2 years, 10 months ago

Tron pro V1.7 Extra ball settings shows 10 light cycle shots. Combo counter would be sweet.

Yea if he has it at home he will likely be tempted to use his skill to perfect the code. That said, I think it is lame that Stern did not pay him for his time perfecting the code for SM. The man plays a critical role in why people love to play many of your pins pay him for his time please.


2 years, 10 months ago

Maybe if he wins enough money thru tournaments he'll just buy stern outright.

Random Bug in my TRON LE:

Can someone test this for me?

-Turn on your game
-Open coin door
-Adjust Volume (up or down)
-Close coin door

Does the Tron Music continue playing?

Mine continues playing and will not stop until I start a game or turn off the machine.


2 years, 10 months ago

I had that happen a couple of times, yes

Good to know I'm not crazy! (well, i guess that is an entirely different issue all together, lol)


2 years, 10 months ago

^^^ Mine does this too with 1.7 installed. Weird.

It's clearly ruined, in an effort to make this situation right I will store and 'work' on it at my house for you fattrain.


2 years, 10 months ago

If you really want video mode just add it yourself

This is not Tron Specific. All games that had the "power on" bug were fixed with that newer code and now have this problem. My TRON LE and IM now do this.
You don't have to turn the game off, just go into the setup menu and then exit.


2 years, 10 months ago

I normally just start a game right afterwards so it's not really that much of a hindrance

I hope the Pro gets some love from him also.

If he tweaks the code, I couldn't imagine him not giving both models a quick facelift.


2 years, 10 months ago

Dont take the stickers off or touch goodie bag! Keep it like new.

My flasher in the little Tron arcade is burnt out. Seems glued together and a pain to replace. Any advice?


2 years, 10 months ago

why are you apologizing?? im glad you started this thread! not all of us are in the "know" on all things pinball. cannot wait for this update.

+100 on video mode. Tron is appropriate. Great idea if it can be overridden but if not deal. Video modes are fun.

*Some* video modes *can be* fun.

If you want proof that not all of them are fun, play the complete mess that is the Tommy video mode, that apparently awards points completely at random.

+1

Love Tommy, hate the video mode. All you do is keep the plane at the bottom of the screen, dont move, and you get 13 million points every time.


2 years, 10 months ago

Simple video mode - like BSD.

Discs being fired at you - use flippers to cancel out by firing discs back - simple, fun etc.

as lot of guys (i suppose), i've sent few ask already to STERN about the TRON LE, here's a copy/paste of my last mail :

(to be said, i'm on 1.4)

- EXTRA BALL : the one thrue the mystery in the arcade :

its now weeks (seems even more) that i did not get one...
that meens you can (quite) only collect the one from DAFT PUNK ramps
would be nice to add just another one, for example light it after completing 3X the TRON bank targets (on the same ball of course)

- SPECIAL outlanes : same as EB, only got it thrue the mystery in the arcade... its quite frustrating, even on a free game (!?), that "red light" and the "clack" knocker have something really magical

same idea as the EB, after 3X you than first light the EB, after the next 3X you light the SPECIAL, and repeat as it

lets suppose 3X will be easy for good players, than just increase each round the number of X by 2

3X=EB, 3X=SPECIAL, next time became 5X=EB, 5X=SPECIAL, next time became 7X=EB, 7X=SPECIAL, ...

- a VIDEO MODE : playing with the 2 flippers, bicycle theme, in the same idea as the F1 in INDY500, or just battling to escape walls in a labyrinth

during the VIDEO MODE, all light OFF
the right section of the DOT show the 3D action, the left section can show a 2D map upper view of the labyrinth

this VIDEO MODE could be enabled directly thrue the mystery in the arcade, and also with the DAFT PUNK ramp (and than the last idea)

- DAFT PUNK ramps

the situation is as it : first time enable the EB, second time enable DAFT PUNK multiball, ... and than nothing until 8 times for next DAFT PUNK multiball !? (ok i know you can change easier in the set up, but but but)

would be nice to be granted something each time you completed DAFT PUNK, than :

first time = EB
second time = DAFT PUNK multiball
third time = VIDEO MODE + SPECIAL outlanes
and than repeat the sequence again & again

i'm a quite good player (...), yes i'm lol, my highscore is 287M in 3 balls standard settings, and i have never done 4 times the DAFT PUNK sequence, that means this will remain hard

---------------------------------

ok, tanx for reading, and sorry about the approximative english, as its not my native & usual langage


2 years, 10 months ago

More combos for eol, volume bug sorting (i want to drown out the speech with the daft punk tunes...pls:)) Light cycle video mode (optionally selectable), some extra deep 'bass' callouts/noises and extra shaker motor functionality. I could then be buried in my cab when my time comes....:)
