I hope they do
big bang bar
Please , though anything they release seem to be worth getting

Any news on the newest run of LE games shipping?

#1153 8 days ago

Doug posted an update in the CGC Pinball Production Update thread 3 days ago. Synopsis: just about finished filling and sending international containers, US LEs to start shipping next week. Check with your dealer for status.

#1154 8 days ago

Received my LE #910 today (Europe 230v Version). Great game but got a litet shaded by the following findings:

No topper (!) Do not understand why this was not shipped, no information about this in advance...

Some cracks in some plastics (as seen in other posts)

Bracket for interlock in the coin door was reversed (ball eject, plunger, bumpers and more did not work). Game obviously did not work due to this. Easily fixed once we found the problem. Makes one wonder about the test process in the line though...

At least I can play now... thanks CGC/PPS for much faster than expected time from order to delivery. Looking forward to the next game. Issues in this thread has been reported to the distributor (Bertjan...)

#1155 8 days ago

I wonder if it might have become dislodged during shipping (Topper Box). My topper box was very loose due to the top of the game box caving in at the front.
The only thing that was holding the topper box on was a single nylon strap.

#1156 8 days ago

Hi everyone.

Just joined the "club." Awaiting on delivery. Honestly more excited about this than anything I have ever bought, much less a pin.

#1157 7 days ago

Just talked with Doug From CGC today at IAAPA.
We asked if they planned on doing an original theme someday.
He said it is already on the whiteboard
This company is on a roll!!!!

Do you want to to put “Attack From Mars” on that Dracula spot?... I can help you with that just have to drive a couple of hours to St.Louis from Ontario, but I’ll be glad to...

I figured this was coming. They would have to be crazy not to pursue that market. Stern will be fine but man they are going to have to step it up.

Ha. I'll keep you in mind my friend. I would trade my wife before Dracula though. BSD is probably my favorite pre-AFM. An absolute blast to play and I still love the "WINDS!" call out for mist multi ball.

Wow that's a stark contrast from other people receiving. Must have taken a beating in transit to you over there.

#1162 7 days ago

Picked up my AFMr SE yesterday. Awesome game.

#1163 7 days ago

PinballSTAR has a few AFMR LE (Limited Editions) left to sell - I get feedback from customers others are sold out, but we have a few left in our allotment... If interested email Joe at Sales@PinballSTAR.com.

Of course taking orders on AFMR Classics and AFMR Specials as well...

We also have 1 MMR Standard in stock left.

#1164 7 days ago

Will order, thanks!

#1165 7 days ago

Finally finished under-cab lighting.

» YouTube video

I zip-tied the RGB LED strip to 1" wide molding and then spot Velcro'd the molding to the underside of the cabinet. Interconnect wires are zip-tie-secured to the molding. Nice and neat, simple to remove.

Keying off the topper lights, vs the speaker lights. There's a bit more variation in topper lighting effects (fades, flashing, color switching) than the speakers. I think it looks good, but some of the effects are a bit bright!

#1166 6 days ago

That is bright! Gonna figure this out too, but I may have to add an easy reach on/off switch to disable if needed. And wow, you just barely got that topper in!

#1167 6 days ago

Yes, barely fit. I have the Martian dude disabled and in the full DOWN position to fit. Still looks great with the lighting effects.

The lighting is not so jarring with the basement lights on.

#1168 6 days ago

Hi Guys

This is my first post on pinside, so be gentle:)

3 days ago i got AFMre from Ministry of Pinball in Holland
All arrived in very nice condition, but when i started the game it just flashed quickly and the fuse of the room went out, and it looks like it did the same on the AFMre

Both the T5L was burnt
Now im about to replace the T5L, but i cant find any here in Sweden
I can only find T5A
See the pictures

So my question is - Are they the same?
i googled a bit, but got no clear info on this

Many Thanks

20171115_203830_resized (resized).jpg

#1169 6 days ago

both are 5A the difference is one is a slow blow the other not. Should not be a problem.
Now the real problem is that the fuse blows, so there is somewhere shortage in the machine. If you blow your home fuse it will be in the 220V circuit, if you blow a machine fuse it can be anywhere. Look at the drawings of the system for resolution.

#1170 6 days ago

If you use a fast blow fuse it will blow again, slow blow allows the amperage to be exceeded but not for for a long time. I would get some proper ones on the way, but also contact the seller for assistance. They should even help with providing fuses. Since you never got a game out.

#1171 6 days ago

Got my call this morning for final payment, looks like my game is shipping monday and should have it tuesday. I will NOT be at work next week

#1172 6 days ago

Thanks for the reply PeterG & Fortytwo

Yeah, i did the exchange just now
But the fuse in the room goes right away when i tried to start it again
Sucks really
I guess ill conctat the seller again
Quite odd

#1173 6 days ago

Just got the call will be here next week also.Le green trim.From game room guys

#1174 6 days ago

I paid in full for mine last week. anxiously awaiting shipping info from my dealer!! I am very excited for this pin. was hoping to have it in time to enjoy it over the upcoming thanksgiving holiday... may be tight though... seeing others in the US getting theirs has me thinking it still may happen!

#1175 6 days ago
Quoted from gjm7777:

Anyone get an intermittent weak right scoop eject?
It happens about once a game, most ejects hit the left flipper but theres always one thats weak which goes straight down the drain. Because its totally random its kind of frustrating. Setting is max in options for left and right scoop.

Just wanted to follow up on this. It turns out this came about by me reducing the flipper power too low. Even though the scoop power is independent in the menus, they are tied to flipper power in some way.

#1176 5 days ago

Got my final payment request from Game Exchange yesterday. Out of town of course so can’t get check till weekend.
Very excited though.

Sounds like something got messed up on the conversion. Hope you get this problem solved quickly.

Good call. I bet the voltage setup is wrong somewhere. Start from the wall tracing the issue. Look for shorts verify everything is correct. Hook up one thing at a time.

#1180 5 days ago

To all you afmr classic owners. How do you like your pin? I have an opportunity to purchase a pro well below new cost. Less than 150 games upgraded color dmd. Would love to hear your thoughts and throw in feelings on a huo tspp. Looking for a game with alot of meat on its bones for my collection

#1181 5 days ago

Ozzy, sorry I would like to respond but I have a severe Martian problem. They are everywhere and I'm trying to defeat them.

If you get one you'll know what I mean.

There is no pro. Special edition had the upgraded screen size. LE’s are sold out so you won’t be able to find one of those.

Details are all on the CGC site on the differences.

Three models. Classic Edition, Special Edition, Limited Edition.

Maybe he meant Classic Edition when he posted pro ?

Unbelievable... the topper form #AFMRLE was never sent(!), and seller did not inform me about this advance. Made me harass shipping firms in Sweden and the Netherlands, crying wolf.... Took him 3 days to respond on this matter. Now looking forward to add the topper once it arrives. For those still waiting for LE shipments, make sure you get two packages on the pallet as shown in provided (reused) image.

Questions to fellow AFMR Pinsiders with the various plastics with cracks in paintings, did you report this directly to CGI/PPS? What was the response about that (this thread has far to many posts to find previous answers in...) ?

Contact (email) CGC support. They sent out new plastics. Very easy to deal with.

#1190 4 days ago

Excellent game, really happy with the classic. Owned a mint low play HUO TSPP and much prefer AFMr.

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Same for me. Easy, painless replacement.

A second issue (controller board), was resolved quickly. There was no resistance to help, responses were fast. Their troubleshooting of the issue was logical and resolved the issue with a replacement promptly sent out.

I can imagine if you are outside the US the process might take longer (shipping, etc.), but I have no doubt CGC will work diligently with you to make it right.

Neil.

Ozzy I wasn't a classic owner but I've played a ton of games on classic, figured I'd throw my two cents in. I even got to play both of them side by side at the Chicago Expo. They feel identical in terms of their play, the remake just looks a lot prettier...and the extra large color screen is something else(not on the version you are looking at of course).

#1193 4 days ago

Thanks for all the input , and yes I meant classic . Thanks for pointing that out. Does it change game play calling it a pro?

#1194 4 days ago

Had the opportunity to play an SE last night and it is a great playing beautiful game. That huge display is AWESOME!

I ran into an SE the other day as well. I am so excited for mine to arrive. It looked so much better in person than I thought it would. That large display makes all the difference in he world. Its beautiful.

Ok, thanks will do that next week, most of the plastics seems to have this "problem". Game plays fantastic tough! It's a pure adrenaline-rush playing

#1197 3 days ago

Has someone got the dimensions of the box please?

#1198 3 days ago
Quoted from pocketscience:

Has someone got the dimensions of the box please?

About 32" by 32" by 57"

#1199 3 days ago

How are people liking the classics and SEs? Obviously LE owners love theirs, please provide some more owner feedback too -thx!

#1200 3 days ago

Anybody know if the 3D translights work on the remake?
