Quoted from JoshODBrown:

Can someone confirm if there is a way to make the new color DMD show orange/red dots only like the original machines. I know this is a stupid request but is there any way it can be done in the menus?

LTG : )

#9802 4 months ago

This is awesome! Thanks for confirming that! Didn’t have a game in front of me to try it, but needed to know if it was capable of doing so.

#9803 4 months ago

Ugh, You sir are a saint. This will be very helpful. Thank you.

#9804 4 months ago

I've played games with all of the color options, but keep coming back to full color. AFMr has to be one of the best overall animated pins from the DMD era, and the enhanced resolution and color on the larger display only make it better.

Quoted from CoasterG:

Out of curiosity, you need the color chip, larger display, the proper mounting for the display - anything else?
Where did you get your larger LCD screen from?

I believe I ordered from Jason at Classicgamerooms.com…but I know he is out.

Yes, color chip and the XL display kit…which includes everything needed to upgrade the display and subwoofer.

I found this YT video pretty informative.

Quoted from TheMickster:

For those they do not have these Big O Jiggly Martians, with or without the LED eyes, you are missing a great enhancement for your playfield.

AFM & AFMr Big O Jiggly LED Martians, Red or Multi Colored Eyes
Big O Jiggly Martians, no LEDs, Just Bigger and Jiggly
Thank you all for the continuing support of my products,
Mick

Just wanted to give a big shout out to Mick for providing great customer support.

A tiny led went out on one of my Big O Jiggly Martians and Mick immediately provided a replacement without any hassle.

For those who haven't upgraded their original martians, the Big O jiggly Martians are a nice improvement. And you can have confidence knowing the seller stands by his product. Thanks Mick!

Hey guys!
I have the flipper strength at -2 but I am still getting the ball come off the right ramp and drain when I shoot the lock shot to the right ramp (ball comes off around where my finger is pointing).
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Gently bend the wireform a little to make more of a banked turn.

Raise the wireform a little where it fastens on the slingshot plastic.

Raise the rear of your game so the playfield is more steep.

Ok!
Should I try one of these steps at a time?

I’ll start by trying to bend it first.

As far as raising the wire form a little, should I put little washer under it?

Thanks again Lloyd!

Try any one you like first.

To raise the wireform a washer, washers, spacer, etc. etc.

Hello. Any idea if GCG will remake AFM or if they might sell toppers separately like MM?

#9814 4 months ago

Hello all…. Need to pull my side rails as I am going to send the off for powder coating soon.

Do I need to pull the head for that?

Thanks in advance for any tips!

Here is Mezel's, but they are unavailable (not sure if they are still making them): https://mezelmods.com/collections/attack-from-mars-pinball-mods/products/attack-from-mars-pinball-eat-at-eddys-building

However, there's always my VUK building cover. I wanted something more in style with the building in the game's artwork, and I can customize the message on the sign: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/100908

Mezel runs out so get on the mailing list to be notified when back in stock. I think the Eddy building and big wiggly
Martians are the best mods for this game

#9820 4 months ago

Mezel was out when I looked a few weeks ago. I purchased the same one from Cointaker:

AFMr rails unscrew on each side. Don’t need to pull the head. Easiest game ever to take them off.

Here is my AFMr that I powdercoated.

Basically just sits over top of the VUK and uses double-sided tape.

cconway84 - thanks for the info and pics! What color is that?…am I seeing a bit of metal flake in there?

…also thinking of doing my MM in a deep royal/cobalt blue. Those each look great!

Similar color to a LE. A touch more subtle. More granny apple less neon green.

I saw MMr in blue on pinside and had to copy it. Love the look.

No, I also have a shaker in my LE and I've never adjusted mine nor had reports of people having to do so. You can always stick a piece of mounting tape on the inside if you want (or I can also include a magnet on the inside). Can't tell you how many of these I've sold to both original and remake owners, so they are always welcome to comment on their experiences.

Use the double stick tape on it.. will never come loose. I did that and have shaker never budged.

Is it recommended to remove the topper when transporting the game in your vehicle?

My LE went 9 miles in a truck folded down with topper in place with no issues.

I bought the led eye jiggly o martians. Do you recommend attaching the lights to general GI or a more interactive light? Also silver sharpie to make this look better? Detail is not there compared to original

[quoted image]

Before I had mine painted, I used a silver Sharpie to make them look more like the Martian on the LE topper. I also used a red Sharpie in the eye area.

As far as lighting them, I connected them to GI and really like them that way. It's hard to do anything other than that due to the SMDs being surface mounted to circuit boards. Besides, I like those beady red eyes staring at me while I'm trying to destroy their mothership.

Here are my painted once. These have a slight blackwash on them to bring out detail, silver exposed muscles, and some coloring on the head.

#9850 3 months ago

I had an issue occur yesterday that I don't know if it was a fluke or a documented issue/bug. I was in total annihilation multi-ball with the forcefield down and destroyed the last saucer before destroying it and advancing to destroy Mars. The game didn't stop and play the normal animation for advancing to destroy mars but the forcefield raised as normal and I kept playing until multi-ball finished.

Once multi-ball was over I was able to hit all 3 targets and lower the forcefield (this occurred while still playing the remaining ball from multi-ball and after draining and launching a new ball). At this point, I kept hitting the saucer target over and over, but the destruction of Mars animation never occurred. I did this well over 10 times (probably close to 20) but nothing ever changed. The drop target would drop, my ball would go down the chute, and it was returned to the flippers via the left wireframe.

Very frustrating as a I had really nice game going (I actually set my high score even with this bug), and only had one achievement left before advancing to RTU (which still eludes me).
