A guy made a mod that has a realistic-looking cabinet running MAME code for the attract screen from Tron on a tiny LCD.

Oh here is a picture. I bought one and installed it. You can click on it for a larger picture.

You haven't posted this story or picture yet today in this thread. C'mon, you've got a streak going!

I think I am losing my mind. This thread might be the documentation of where it all began.

I think it began when you started contemplating buying pinball machines, but fortunately, you'll be long dead from a motorcycle accident before the dementia can take full effect.

I prefer the tables with painted rather than photographed backglasses(?)

The photo ones feel like a cop out. But that's just me. I like the electro-mechanical tables better than the computerized ones, even though the newer ones can be way more exciting in terms of stuff to achieve.

I do play this regularly, but I feel that I could have made a better use of money than a new in box one. God.

I have been some terrible financial decisions this year.

After seeing your little Tron mod and then playing the Family Guy pinball cab and unlocking Stewie's game within a game, I would enjoy living in a reality where the mini tron cab is a fully playable light cycle game.

I think it's cute. It reminds me how the opening of The Stanley Parable has a menu screen for the start of the game where the mouse pointer can select a menu, and on the screen is a video screen of "The Stanley Parable" with a mouse above a set of menu options, and the mouse on that screen appears in the same spot as yours does, following your movements. And that screen has a video game with "The Stanley Parable" appearing on it, with a mouse above a set of menu options...

This is a fantastic machine, one Jonsey was kind enough to let me spoil with my shitty, shitty scores. The miniature arcade cabinet mod is very cool in person. You don't have to be good at pinball to appreciate what a cool machine this is. Which, in my case, is good.
