Joined the AFMR LE club! When family and friends visit, there is a line to play it - they all love it.

Wondering how many of you AFMR owners have changed to a custom logo (instead of the default Bally)?

Now that is class! Simply beautiful!

#5583 6 months ago

Thank you to all on here for suggesting settings changes (you guys seriously all rock!) - I have adjusted the flipper strength to -3 and the incandescent lighting to medium on our AFMR LE and I reckon it's just about right. Was thinking to up the Shaker Motor and Strobe to MAX, but I don't want to scare away the kiddies - they love the machine. Oh yeah, TWD next to it is getting almost zero love.

Just out of interest, who here has AFMR LE # 305 and # 307? I have # 306 (Melbourne, Aus). I think 305 may also be in Aus (Brisbane I think)? Interesting to see where these LEs end up around the world.

#305 reporting in from Brisbane in glorious Queensland , and just about to get an Atomic Blaster mod,.. even though they say “it will never work”..

What a beauty!

Quoted from Eskaybee:

I had this issue on my LE, left flipper too; it was driving me nuts. Almost stopped playing and selling the game altogether cause of it. I tried adjusting the flipper alignment, I tried 10 different pitch settings, I tried adjusting the lane guide and tightening screws while giving pressure to one direction. In the end...I found that one of the lane guide posts (top one of the 3) was too tight. The first few times I loosened it I didn't even notice. Loosening all 3 dramatically one day budged the post free, the little lip of it was caught under the lane guide. It's 99% good now so I'd recommend checking those lane guide posts. If you need a pic or further understanding let me know.
On another note; am I the only one who has flipper strength in the positive? I usually run it at +2 or +3 strength; then again, I am at 7.6 dig pitch so that may have something to do with it. Couldn't imagine playing it slower - game is brutal and I love it

Even at 7.6 degrees that some powerful flipper settings. Mine is at 6.5 deg and was getting contestant air balls (when flippers were set to default) making it hard to slow down the play & aim my shots. Since adjusting to -3 my play is quite consistent with better (higher) scores.

Quoted from Edster:

Joined the club last weekend. Got Martian Green. Owned an original years ago and I must say, this remake rocks. I think its better than the original. Never thought I would ever say that.

Welcome to the club (and you chose wisely re: trim colour )

Quoted from New_England:

I don’t think it does. Is that something I can replace myself, or does the original owner need to do so under warranty?

The original owner would have had PIC 2.0 sent to them by their distro. All (original) owners of AFMR had this sent to them.

Quoted from mrWol64:

Soooooo,.. raised the ticket with CGC, and fast response as usual. It just turns out a wire to the switch has snapped,.. I must have my shaker and volume set to earthquake levels My original very careful checking first time around obviously suffered from 54 year old poor eyesight. Pushed the wire back in and the switch now responds. Hopefully they'll send me a replacement for the cable assembly.

Great outcome. I feel confident in a product when the manufacturer backs it with great support. Can't speak highly enough of CGC's customer support.

Quoted from DudeRegular:

Just placed an order for a Classic Edition with the Color upgrade chip. The price drop put me over the edge. Looking forward to joining the club!

Congrats! You won't regret it

A total noob question: how easy/difficult is it to move the posts down so I can stop it being a drain monster? Are there any little gotchas? All tips will be greatly appreciated.

PS: Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere here.

Quoted from mrWol64:

A shout out to my AFMr LE distributor here in Aus.. Mr Pinball ... drop target stopped popping up, .. and turns out a wire was broken, and soldering fix was beyond my meagre skills,.. (a tricky one),.. I think CGC were a bit surprised that not everyone is a gun at soldering.
Wayne and crew at Mr Pinball managed to get it all sorted out, .. no fuss. I am now,.. returning too battle.
Btw, happily the way this game is designed, if the drop target doesn't work and stays down,.. the game is still very playable.

I’m rubbish at soldering too, so this is good to know

I am not at my AFMR game right now, so I am hoping someone can let know how many balls AFMR has? I was about to put an order in for some Ball Baron Ninja balls, but couldn't recall if it was 4 (or more) balls. Thank you

Since my younger nephew loves playing our AFMRLE, he gave us this awesome framed artwork for Christmas!

Finally moved the outlane posts down and wow, hardly any drains on those outlanes. About to install some new Ninja balls. Hope they help to get me to RTU

How many other “industries” have a service expert who supports their customers/owners via their company support line and through just about all days/hours of the week on a global enthusiast website?
Lloyd really helps keeping many of these machines working!!!

+1,000,000,000 for ltg - an absolute legend. Can't thank him enough to be honest.

Remake NIB owners. Did all versions of the game come with the manual?

Mine did, but it was version 1.4. I downloaded v1.5 and threw out the old one.

Stopped by abarigamebar today. June 30th will mark two year anniversary and we should surpass 40,000 way before then.

A great Return On Investment (minus any parts + labour)! At this rate my AFMRLE will outlast me
