I bought them at TPF. Do you have some?

Do they dim and turn off with the GI?

#4957 2 years ago
Quoted from Lermods:

They are connected to the GI and turn on and off with it. I’m not sure if they dim, but I don’t think they do. Could be wrong about that though. They are also connected to a flasher so there is an additional UV flash that occurs when the game flashes. It’s so much fun to play in the dark like this.

The game is blinged out to begin with and now it’s really blinged, haha!

It comes with leg protectors. Order your Cliffy's now, he's two months behind due to a flood of AFMr orders.

Thanks! I'm in the same position. MMr and AFMr LE are my only 2 games and I'm tempted to stop there, but probably won't be able to resist MBr if that is remake #3.

#4967 2 years ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

During Strobe Multiball the GI portion of the Pinstadium lights turn off (just like the game’s GI) and the UV flashers come on whenever the strobe flashes. But it may vary depending on what flasher you connect to.

Attack LE owners ?? Can the new screen be changed to no dots ?
Or soothing like a color dmd ???

#4969 2 years ago
Quoted from whitey:

I like the dots. I really like the big wide hi-res screen it seems perfect for the game.
The clean dot free look wouldnt look right on the game to me.

However I did choose the smooth look for the color DMD on my ToM, it seemed to match better.

Quoted from whitey:

No, and their frame coloring isn't nearly as advanced as ColorDMDs. You often see a single color messing up the screen on in-motion graphics (colored screens will turn just green, etc). It's in motion, so it's usually quick, but it's irritating, especially if you're used to ColorDMD.

#4974 2 years ago

Well maybe its just me, but the larger screen kicks ass on the LE

#4975 2 years ago

What flipper rubbers do you guys use? Mine had titans in it and I couldn’t catch the damn ball. I put black rubbers on it and it’s still almost impossible to catch the damn ball without it just rolling off.

Also, where is the SoL supposed to shoot the ball to? Mid left flipper I assume ? My machine is level and it hits the metal at the top of the flipper making dead flips pretty risky at best.

I'm using translucent red super bands right now.

Scoop can be twisted slightly if you loosen the screws holding it in to adjust it a little bit.

I have it set to pretty consistently hit the upper third of the left flipper.

Mine used to go straight down the middle a lot until I adjusted it.

I also played with the coil settings a little bit.

Just finished an epic game (for me).

Made it to RTU for the first time!

25 billion points.

It took me a year to do it.
It was well worth the wait.

Amazing experience!

Thank you CGC for making this amazing game available to us.

Pinball Life's perfect play flipper rubber works great. Very nice ball control with it.

Im hoping that is their next remake so I don't need to try and come up with the funds AND space for it!

Quoted from Damagio:

Grats! Enjoy it!

Thanks mate. We absolutely love it!

#4981 2 years ago

I’m looking to trade my ATFMLE #925 for an STTNG + cash or lesser project, ideally, I’d love a firepower, Space Shuttle or flight 2000. We could play with the money either direction depending on the trades. I haven’t even put the topper on the AFM yet (it’s still in the crate) and it only has a couple hundred plays on it. I’d also consider a centipede, robitron or ? Classic arcade as a secondary option.

Sounds like you are already hooked. Start building or change your house around to fit more machines in. This is more an addiction than a hobby. Still a lot of fun!

#4984 2 years ago

I'm surprised nobody has made a art decal for the remake speaker panel...it's just so...well...um, meh.

It's sort of the nature of the game. Set it to 6.8 degrees rather than 6.5, and the added steepness will help you catch the ball.

After many, many plays, this game is going nowhere.

I sold my original AFM years ago..

I can see myself never selling the AFMR LE. Its just better than the original somehow..
I think its the whole package - huge bright color dmd - Topper - speaker Led's - Flashing ufo's.. So much better!

What's your top score so far? I know you blew up your DI!

#4990 2 years ago

I put glow in the dark rings from Titan Pinball and green plastic protectors from Pinbits on mine. I think it makes it pop.

Has there been any word on Planatary making more toppers? I’d really like one for my SE.

Aren't the toppers LE-exclusive? Pretty sure you can't get them except on the LE, even as an additional purchase.

Quoted from Damien:

25B so far. Haven't even ruled the universe yet! Settings right now are extra difficult. No ball save. My best ever was 59B at silverball in jersey

Definitely! And created by the original artist of the game, Doug Watson, which is very cool.

Quoted from pinballaddicted:

I was wrong in my reply earlier. I just had Strobe Multiball again and the GI and Flashers for the Pinstadium lights remained off during this mode. The only lights that were lit were the game strobe on the mothership, the 3 red inserts in front of the force field, and the “Return to Battle” insert. In my opinion this is actually good since that is the way the game designers envisioned it. The darkness during this mode is what makes it so cool and different. Sorry for the incorrect information before.

#4997 2 years ago

Guys what flipper strength are you playing on? I can't seem to find a setting that makes it seem to shoot well. I'm updated and it seems like the shots are just off, I'm still having that stdm when ejecting from the sol ( need to send a support ticket again ) on any strength setting.

Loosen screws and turn the bracket a little. Or loosen the screws and put a washer between the bracket and playfield on the left side.

You have the 2.0 PIC on the driver board ?

I tried loosening the screws but I can't get enough play, I need to still try the washer trick, I submitted a ticket and ultimately a fix was to widen out the holes so I could get more movement. Washers sound a lot easier. I do have 2.0 installed, it seems like my flippers are just off since I installed it.

I honestly have no idea. But I had seen this listing on The Ministry of Pinball website and assumed Chicago Gaming had made them available at some point, otherwise why would they list it separately at all?
