Quoted from KornFreak28:

And insert lighting

All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

#290 2 years ago

Nice update, but I'd love to hear about the schedule for Classics... or am I the only one who ordered a Classic..??

Quoted from Wickerman2:

When are the lowly "classic" buyers getting theirs?

I messaged Doug and he confirmed that classics won't be started until they get to the second run of AFMr (i.e. after the 500 MMr). This means, roughly, a late-September/early-October shipment to Australia... so I'm hoping I'll have my classic by Xmas.

Quoted from Wickerman2:

!!! Guess that front loads them with more cash to keep things running. On the bright side, if there are any issues that need to be resolved the Classics should be rock solid.

Yup, my thoughts exactly.

#365 2 years ago

FYI Doug confirmed that all machines get the new graphic backboard... I was thinking it might have been an LE thing only. Pretty happy to have that confirmed.

#414 2 years ago
Quoted from stpcore:

So it looks like 2nd batch of AFMLE would be September/October based on that timeline.

Doug effectively confirmed that recently to me when I asked him about CE's. He said they'd done with the 2nd run of LE's with shipping early October.

#417 2 years ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

Christmas time for the lowly Classics at best?

Doug told me they'd be shipping to Australia late September/early October... so I'd imagine US folk would get CE's well before Xmas.

#487 2 years ago
Quoted from CGC_DougS:

• Once started, we will focus only on LE’s until all have been built.

cgc_dougs, where do the CE's fit now in this all..?

#503 2 years ago

"CE's will not be produced until most or all LE's have come off the line."

Based on this it seems Xmas might be off the table now...

Quoted from PW79:

Damn, its been difficult to spend my money lately

Yup. The story about CE's changed a little while back. Initially Doug said late September, early October shipment to Australia - that was when they were building 500 LE's, then switching to 500 MMr's, then back to AFMr which would include CE's. Latest is that CE's won't be started until all LE's are built. I paid my deposit on March 29 - might have something to show in January...

Hoping that CGC are on track to re-commence AFMr LE's from next week... especially the overseas orders!

#1227 2 years ago
Quoted from CGC_DougS:

3. We have several overseas containers that will be built out first.

w00t!!

Quoted from TOLLS:

Paid for AFMrLE. Anyone know when it’s getting to Australia? These good reviews are making the wait endless.

Wayne mentioned on AA over the weekend that he'd be in touch with people this week.

#1248 2 years ago
Quoted from Ballypinball:

Chicago gaming has requested payment, will be in touch soon just busy with the show this weekend

Just take my damn money Wayne!!

Yay! My 10yo son wants to do a road trip to pick it up from Wayne direct. I’m thinking Prowler is a easier option though... hmm...

Quoted from Wickerman2:

My Classic...what's wrong with this picture? No love for the Classics

Well, some say they are basically the same game...

Quoted from CGC_DougS:

1. Overall our games are performing amazingly. However, there has been a small number of reported concerns, on very recently produced games, of the balls trajectory as is comes out of the shooter lane. This really came to light as people opened tickets and we were able to piece to together the problem. By Monday morning our engineering and production team were working on a fix. Let me be clear, there are no failures; rather, the ball on these games comes out of the shooter lane and does not properly travel to the gate or around the orbiter loop. As mention several times, we work very methodically here at CGC. It might take a few days before we release the correction. Regardless, it will be an easy correction and we will post it on our service portal.

Doug, has the ball trajectory fix been posted? I can't seem to find it if it has...

Why are there so many comments posted here that aren't specifically related to the topic title... CGC Production Updates... it seems most should be posted over in the Owners thread... just sayin'
