Quoted from Boatshoe:

I'd consider it complete, and anything new would be a nice bonus. They are likely putting forth most of their effort on Halloween/Kaiju.
They are not going to announce anything until it is approved and ready for distribution.

pretty much this: if the thread title changes, expect a new mode; otherwise, don't.

Yeah, but the effort isn't the same. EP has the code on R&M and that wouldn't take anything away from the new titles.

Yup it's EP's baby and he's said there is a backbox dimming feature coming in the next update so I'm hyped.

To certain others... quit demanding a road map on this game and be DELIGHTED with what is already there and be THRILLED if any more content arrives. I personally find it to be some of the best code since some of Lyman's efforts. Good times.

Then go gush in EP's thread and embarrass the guy

Backbox dimming?? There's barely any light from the backbox now....

I don't know what to say. If you don't see the backbox reflection in the dark... maybe an optometrist visit?

Seriously I don't know how to respond to such a statement...? Maybe if you're under 5'11" you won't see it?

I'm not saying you don't see reflections, but the display reflection and speaker led reflections is much more in your face than the backbox and there isn't much in the manner of things you need to see the ball for that far back on the game. Just found that odd, since the majority of the back box is black.

I use a plastic glare guard so I don't see any reflections from the display. I do see the speakers a bit but they are hard right and hard left.

If you play in the dark (like any sensible person should with this light show then I hope you did the screen swap.

It's fab-u-lous

I realize now that a lot of people may not use the cheap plastic glare guards to play in dim or dark conditions. Since you just slide them in you only need one or two no matter what size your collection is. They work fantastic and are a must for playing in the dark. And did I point out they're *cheap*.

-----------> Speaking of the new display available for R&M...

Inky black. Black as deep space. Black as the Reaper's robe. Black as the void you stare into... with nothing looking back.
Running out of sayings but you get the idea.

Plus the blacks in the dark have no grey at *any* angle. So your semi-bored friends milling around waiting for you to lose the ball can enjoy the show in all it's glory. Remember you're already risking your small expensive items letting friends wander around in the dark. Frisk them before they leave. They'll love it.

I have to give a shout out to "Harry" for doing the legwork. Despite my moaning about the screen I didn't want to repeatedly order the wrong parts until I got lucky. Which might never have happened. So I just let him do it.

With his perfectly fitting brackets and the screen and controller the total cost is under 200 bucks. Yes you'd lose your old CARGP status but it will be well worth it. Lloyd will know what this means. And a few other old timers.

Who should NOT get Harry's new screen kit with the appropriately neon green brackets:

a. You don't play R&M in the dark or dim light (what's *wrong* with you!?)

b. You're a cheap bastard. (This used to be a point of pride in earlier times but now it is VERBOTEN in today's "pinball lifestyle").

c. You're shorter than 5'11" or maybe 5'8" or so. (what's *wrong* with you! j/k).

Ok I've only been paid enough to write this much copy so we're done. (yes j/k for those about to call me a shill).

I can't help it. I get excited.

Is this demanding that we be DELIGHTED and THRILLED? You’re kinda demanding that we stop demanding…

I’m guessing as I’m the most recent owner to ask this question in this thread, it was referencing my inquiry in an otherwise icy cold thread as of late. Is more R&M content a bad thing? Are we not allowed to wonder IF more is coming? I’ve owned my Jerry Edition for less than a year, and there are 500+ owners who’ve owned theirs for less time. With other manufacturers still releasing code updates for timespans greater than a year after release, is it off base to have this conversation?

I’m not sure there was a road map of any coming code being demanded. The only R&M roadmap I would like to request though is in the form of a user manual.

Can we buy the monitors now? I thought there was a thread where they were collecting interest for different machines. I was basically waiting for the invoice. I am absolutely in on TNA and R&M.

I never got a number, but I've cheaped out enough ways on R&M that buying a nice black screen wouldn't have mattered.

You know you're right... in retrospect I *was* being equally demanding. Maybe more so. Kinda uncool I agree.
But it's not just you... many others have brought this up and I wince every time I see the topic come up.
So I had to honestly ask myself why and I think I have an answer.

Because I don't want to hear that it's over. (lol cue the sad violin)

I'm afraid each time the question gets asked someone from Spooky or EP will say "Mission Accomplished".

Then we will hear from some others about being happy with everything that is already in the code, quit bitching, etc. And I can't really argue with that sentiment.

But I still don't want to hear that it's over.

A bit back in the thread there's a post from Harry Houdini that has a link to Amazon for the screen and the controller.
I bought these and then went to his site (Pinball Mods I believe) and got the brackets. During that time I had it held in place with blue painters tape. Not a good long term solution but it let me get wowed while I waited for the brackets.

I think on his site there may be an option to get all three components right there and then... one stop shopping.

I’m with you, I don’t want the door to close anytime soon. We all know there will come a time, I just hope that we get blessed with some additional fan favorite moments from the show. I’ve already soul bonded with my machine, so I’m hoping for a few more goodies to be added added since I’ll be keeping and playing this pin for eternity.

I would be really happy if the extra ball sign on the lower digits could be dimmed. It's quite bright on dark environment.

Maybe just a piece of window tint or something similar would help?

#16024 2 days ago

Isn’t someone sick of their Rick and Morty yet and wants to get one of those nice Godzilla machines from Stern…

Think of how much fun that would be and y’all can sell a RM at a reasonable price and get that shiny new Stern.

That's a good idea. Would be cool to dim the extra ball sign by software anyway. Am I the only one who gets dazzled after achieving an extra ball?

#16026 2 days ago

I got the brackets and the new lcd a month or so ago. Question for anyone that installed it…those brackets need to be super lose. Any pressure on the back of the screen causes a pressure mark on the front. I guess that’s why the original was in that shell. What have people been doing?

I cut a rectangle of corrugated cardboard about an inch smaller all around than the Spooky enclosure, then used a good amount of thick double-sticky tape to tape it to the enclosure, centered. I used three smaller pieces of DS tape to stick the screen to the cardboard. Also stuck a couple bits of cardboard under the bottom of the screen (vertically) as there was ~3/16" gap between it and the enclosure wall all around and I didn't want the screen to sag.

This resulted in a pretty much perfect mount, centered and right up against the clear shield on the speakerpanel. No problems so far. Picture is very nice.

Game is to addictive and fun to get sick of it. I’ve had mine for about a year now and don’t plan on getting rid of it anytime soon.

GNR, Mandalorian and DP would all have to go first! (Maybe not in that order)

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah - totally me trolling, of course I want one. I think there is a lot of interesting stuff out there but I love the theme Rick and Morty have not had a chance to play it. Not exactly a location game in the Seattle area that I have seen at least.

Maybe someday when someone wants to mix it up I will have my chance and by then I should be able to play one. My only concern is this forum is full with tweaks the game has required, by the sheer number of tweaks the game is concerning though.

You need to hit a show and I'm sure you'll get a chance to play it then.

Yes there are some tweaks for improvements but nothing too crazy. I've followed the thread since it started and it seems like a just a handful of people had some really bad luck with a lot of different issues when they got their machine and some of them were very vocal about it. There have also been people that had no issues.

On my machine I did my own fix on the right flipper button because of the odd design it has, I adjusted a couple of the rails and installed the spacers on the flippers. Other than that my machine has always worked good and has played good but now it plays great. The geography of the shots were intended to be difficult. All the shots were makeable on mine out of the box but now they are just more makeable.

If you love Rick and Morty this is definitely a must have for you. Good luck I hope you find one!

As an added bonus the plastic glare guard with a few wraps of electrical tape to make it fit snug completely eliminated the glass rattle from the bass/shaker on our R&M

I bought a set of Stern flipper switches on Scott's recommendation, but now realize it is too short for the right side.

Has anyone swapped out their switches?

TECH: PLAYFIELD. Garage Shot - Woodrail Fix
