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!

#5963 3 months ago
Quoted from Vino:

Congrats! Will they be sending the color chip at the same time as your AFMr classic edition?
I’m curious as I’m considering a Monster Bash classic and don’t want to settle for the orange dots while waiting for a chip.

They are supposed to be yes. Also as I understand it, even though you don't get multicolor on the stock game, you can select which color you have on the DMD.

I chatted with one of the guys who distros in my area and he confirmed the price of 6000 for the CE for me. Many of the store listings are probably just slow to update.

#5979 3 months ago
Quoted from BC_Gambit:

Thank you for the info re: the pricing!
I was hoping for a cut on the SE as well; but it is great to know that the "budget" model competes so well with a Stern pro on pricing.
Getting a NIB AFM in 2018 for 6K? That would be considered nuts not that long ago...

I hoped the SE would drop to 7k or so too. Altogether with delivery, color chip and I also ordered the shaker from PPS and I am still well under 7k for a brand new AFMr. It should be here this weekend. We are excited.

#5980 3 months ago

My AFMr CE showed up today. Still dialing in a little bit. It has the 1.0 software on it. The color chip was not with it so it is coming from my distributor in the mail. I am having the issue of launched balls not making it to the lanes/pops about half the time so far. Game is dialed in a 6.5 and balanced left to right. I also had the shaker motor and leg cab protectors already waiting so those were both installed already too.

Where do you guys see the ball hit coming out of the stroke of luck shot? Mine seems to be hitting the lane guide a bit left of the left flipper.

#5984 3 months ago

Thanks fellas. The 1.0 I was referring to is what I saw in the CGC hold the button for 4 seconds menu. That is the one for the PIC, correct?

#5986 3 months ago

Ok, it does have the 2.0 chip. Thanks for the clarification.

Any thoughts on the SOL aiming? Played a few more games and it's still hitting metal rather than the flipper. Should it be hitting the left flipper?

Not sure if this is a normal thing now or not, but my classic edition has RGB lights in the main saucer. The feature matrix indicates this is only on the SE and LE models. Happy surprise for us.

#6110 81 days ago
Quoted from Budman:

Are your saucers matte grey or shiny silver?

Pretty sure they are the matte finish. They don't look like the shiny ones I have seen in some pics.

Quoted from Only_Pinball:

Bonus! They must have ran out of the single LED boards.

Nice surprise for sure.

Also got the GC score on mine today when previously I couldn't even get on the board.... stock high score settings.

After working with Lloyd and the guys at CGC support I have most everything working well. Only thing I am still seeing is odd left orbit shots. Hard shots like to rattle around in there and trickle back out. May drop the flipper strength another point or two. The flippers feel pretty good for most everything else though.

Quoted from ctviss:

Quick update on the speaker static/buzz issues I was having when changing the backbox light brightness...
I took a look yesterday and found no loose grounding screws or connectors/wires. All the circuitry and solder joints looked intact. I noticed that the backbox speaker wiring was looped around the solenoid cable, but unlooping it and moving it around had no effect on the noise. I even tried plugging the machine into a power conditioner with no luck. Unplugging the speaker connector was the only way to get the noise to go away...
I opened a ticket with CGC last night and got a response this morning that they are sending me a new controller board. I'll have to send the old one back (I was hoping to keep it so I could troubleshoot it). I'll report back on how it works out.

I noticed the same buzz on my CE. Very interested in your outcome. Thanks

My CE came with the manual as well.

Definitely consider the CE at 6000. Then add a shaker and the HD color rom chip and you are at 6500/6550 or so. That is still a good amount lower than the SE and you have a very similar setup. The graphics are the same once you have the color hd chip with a smaller screen. It is still the high res updated dots in it. Shaker is super easy to install and the chip is a 30 second job.
