Quoted from Strummy:

I saw somebody posted that they put theirs in a few posts back but this thing looks way better in person than it does on the mezel mods website. Wicked cool mod that I almost didn't buy!
[quoted image]

Yeah..it was a pretty straightforward install. Now....one way I could see making this better....is instead of the red led strip, if someone made a fire led strips. Like, comet has some 4smd "fire" led bulbs that is supposed to simulate a fire. It would look awesome in strip form inside the building...

Did you go into adjustments and lower the minimum volume over ride so the coin door buttons go lower ?

LTG : )

That would be cool

Quoted from cscmtp:

So this is my first day playing my new AFMrLE. I just finished ruler of the universe (29 Billion) is there anymore wizard modes to this or did I just finish the game? Its beautiful, I love it, but afraid this might be way to easy if you are a decent pinball player right?

Take the outlanes posts out of the game. Set it to tournament with no extra balls. Raise the bar

#6205 56 days ago
Quoted from LTG:

LTG : )

Yeah, I just looked. It was set to 'yes', which allows to go below the minimum level. Factory default is 'no', which sets volume minimum at 8, which is blaring.

#6206 56 days ago

My last dozen pins that I have bought have been sterns. An AFM came up locally and I decided to make a switch and traded out one of my games for it. I am really glad I did. AFM is a treasure to play and a true classic 90’s era pin. I am totally enjoying it! Fun on a stick!

Happy to be a member of the club.

#6207 55 days ago

I received an Eddy's for Christmas yesterday. I am looking forward to installing it soon. Thanks for sharing all the cool pictures of it.

It seems like it won't be much of a challenge for you relative to the newer games. How easy is it relative to MBr?

#6209 55 days ago

I do not know AFM as well as I should - can someone clue me in on how a diner named Eddy's is related to the game? Is it a nod to Brian?

Agreed! Is it possible to purchase a splitter from Comet and simply run another Fire strip off of it as well as the red one that came with the mod?

Look at the translite.

I won't get my MBrLE probably until next month but we'll see. If everyone else in the family loves it I'm fine with keeping it, but I do tend to like more challenging pins for sure.

Quoted from Budman:

Well, yeah...but...I don't know if someone makes an LED fire strip. The comet "fire" series are bulbs, not strips.

Got my SE yesterday - missing the AC power cord. DOH! Had to go to a computer store and buy one.
Also didn't see any price cards. Is this something that should have been included?

Yes. Open a ticket with CGC and they will send them to you. Crazy they forgot the cord!

Just became a member. AFMLE #343 - black trim all the way!

What’s the atomic blaster? Do you have a pic?

#6219 51 days ago

I don't care for the atomic blaster and I love mods.

#6220 51 days ago

I would like to light the scoop hole and welcome anyone’s recommendation. I see that Mezel Mods has one.

Here is pic of atomic blaster.

I'm tapping out on my AFMrLE.

I enjoyed the game, but I want to change the lineup.

#6223 51 days ago

After 10 months and 1500 games at factory settings, 15B was as high as I got, only even attacked Mars 3 times with out conquering, and was not ruling the universe. Christmas eve I gave myself the present of lowering the outlane posts half way. Less than a week later I finally rule the universe. 27B gc and finally got rid of TEX

#6224 51 days ago

Haven't seen this one before. My trough kicker is super weak at times. If I change the settings to min then back to max it works for a while.
I can hear it fire and pulse in the tests/games but its not strong enough to do anything. Connections seem fine. Any ideas?

#6225 51 days ago
Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Connections seem fine.

Please reseat the connections a couple times. See if that helps.

LTG : )

#6226 51 days ago

I did reseat the entire chain I can find. I'll probably have to call them once tech support is back as I'm still under warranty.

I've had some other weird electrical problems such as weak flippers until you reboot and the like.

#6227 51 days ago
Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Please go to chicago-gaming.com and under Support open a ticket on the help desk. It may go to me, I'll alert it to the engineer.

Y’all keep saying how great this mod is so I gave in and ordered one

Wait, so you handle support for both JJP and CGC?

Sent was going to try to call but this I could do at midnight

#6233 50 days ago

just curious what flipper position is by default as I noticed some owners have them above the peg hole while others have the flippers cover the peg hole.

Quoted from delt31:

Default is toothpick under rubber, in the hole.

Flippers slightly drooped.

#6235 49 days ago

Has anyone installed Cliffs on the SOL hole? Can't seem to get it flat. There's the pointed corner on the protector under the pf, is that supposed to drive right into the wood?

#6236 49 days ago

Have my father-in-law here visiting, and he wanted to check out the pins this evening. He probably hasn't seen or played a pinball machine in 30 years, but after his first game, I could see he was hooked!

He bounced around from game to game, but ended up spending a solid hour or so on AFMR.

I actually left the room to spend time with the rest of the family, and he just kept playing.

When everyone was heading to bed, he came over and said "how do you turn the machines on?". I think he'll be on this forum soon haha!

#6237 48 days ago

So this just happened! Probably my most epic game ever on a pinball machine! Sadly the date and time are wrong on my machine, but whatever! What a blast!

His next question will be "can you help me load this extra MM you have in my truck?".

AWESOME score! Nice job.

#6240 48 days ago

I never get tired of playing this game. AFM is just a great pinball machine.

#6241 48 days ago

I added the Eat at Eddies Mod, put in new balls and cleaned the playfield with Novus 1.....wow...... fast, furious and fun!!! Now to install Pinstadiums?

#6242 48 days ago

On my game, a lock shot that does not go all the way and comes back down tends to return to the right outlane. Can this be reduced by some adjustment?

#6243 48 days ago
Quoted from lb1:

Damien should add an option to his poll... "Let my father-in-law choose one to keep" He may even will it back...

I waxed mine with Blitz 1 Grand and put Ninja balls in. It's cranking!

Does it hit the post rubber on the way out of the lock lane?

#6246 48 days ago

Joined to club today. AFMRLE on order. Must have next to my MBRLE. Hope I like them together.

Try to nudge the game right before it hits the post and it usually will not drain. My game does the same thing so I just had to learn to nudge the game at the right time, and it only needs a small nudge.

Quoted from lb1:

Hahaha!

He actually played a few more re games tonight, but he mainly stuck to AFM. Definitely a great game for all levels. True classic!

Then my wife got 1 catapult shot away from BFTK! Was pretty cool since she barely plays. I set up my MMR on easy with some EBs handed out, so definitely makes it more enjoyable for casual players.

I personally can't play it because it's almost a guaranteed BFTK every time, so I'll just wait until she finishes it one day, and I'll put the settings back to default.

In the interim, I have TWD to finish!

#6249 47 days ago
Quoted from hoby1:

Spoke with Doug and he emailed me again that they are working big on a fix
With mine centered and moved up a 1/4 inch it’s still 100%.
I willleave as is mounted with double sided tape till I get an answer

Was there ever a final answer to this? I'm at the end of all the adjustments (plunger alignment, new ball guide, CGC ramp bend check) with the ramp as the problem, even have a ticket with CGC, and now stalled. I can easily bend the ramp more, use tape to move it, etc. But in reading all the old posts, thought I would ask if CGC had done anything more?

You have a really nice lineup - MMr and TSPP are next on my list. Your father-in-law is a lucky guy!
