I believe there was a statement made some time ago that they're working out an upgraded XL display option for Medieval Madness (as an add-on). Does anyone know what the current status of that is?

#2 11 months ago

What I heard at MGC was that it successfully tested, next comes getting parts, figure out boxing, and instructions. About 2 months.

They have been play testing at Logan's Arcade.

I’d love to get a MMr with the large screen!! Nice

#5 11 months ago

Didn't somebody say this would be a free upgrade for LE buyers?

Free?? You know nothing in life comes for free, especially if they can sell a few new pins. If it were free, that would be great for the early LE owners

#7 11 months ago

Wow, another run with the updated DMD. I'm in!

I was just beginning to look for a MMr and now will hold off for the updated display

#8 11 months ago

I don't think anyone knows if they are doing another run with the bigger display. The bigger display will be sold separately.

very kind of you to buy us all one o-din!

In your dreams. Just like the color upgrade would be free for original LE owners. Sure,sure

I wonder with the obvious change in speakers is there an improvement in sound?

#12 11 months ago

Wonder how much it will be, has to be at least 500.00

Quoted from HarryReimer:

I'm also curious if the color chip will still be $400. I can't picture spending close to 1k simply for a better display...

#14 11 months ago

I already have the color chip, hoping I just pay for the display and the new frame.

#15 11 months ago

Any news on whether the old display can be repurposed,ala colorDMD, to another machine?

#16 11 months ago

If CGC make another run of MMr with the XL display from the factory I’d be in for one! Can’t wait to see #3 and how that compares to AFMr.

Hi Everyone,

I sent Doug Skor a few questions yesterday for more information about the larger screens for MMr. Per usual, Doug was quick to respond. Below are my two questions and his response.

Hi Doug,

1. I'm not sure if you will be making more runs on Standard MMr, but if you do, will any of those remakes include the larger screen?
2. If they aren't included, do you know what the pricing will be to buy the larger screens separately?

From Doug:

Thank you for your interest in our larger screen.

1. At some point I am sure we will align the MMR to the SE and CE models that we have for AFMR and our soon to be released Pin #3. We recently built MMR’s and will again at the very end of 18; however they will be the same.
2. In regards to pricing, we have not yet released this information and your dealer will be the only source to obtain it. However, the pricing of the new game and or the kit will put no buyer in any worse situation even if they purchased the MMR’s when they were first introduced. The color kit will be sold separately from the larger display / speaker panel. There is no pricing advantage/disadvantage in buying an MMR today or in a year from now.

I hope this helps.

I was wondering about this too. Does any buddy know if the sound is going to remixed in a new code update similar to what they did with AFMR?

well the sound was already remixed for the game - I imagine with the new speakers it will make a huge difference to the call outs and probably will require some adjustment.

Subscribed.

#24 9 months ago

Lol ya and so should of game number 3

#25 9 months ago

I believe they are working hard to get game 3 in production/announce and then will get the MMR big display rolling with parts/instructions/box and go.

I really want this. Hoping I can bundle my MBr LE purchase with this upgraded display.

BTW, a new MMr LE interactive topper kit wouldn't hurt either

#33 4 months ago

Bump.

Put me down as really curious to get an update on a MMr refresh in 2019. It’s time for some news on a timeline to align MMr with the other CGC remakes.

#36 3 months ago

I’m not sure how they will do this and not offend LE owners. I am hoping it will as I’m waiting to purchase a NIB.

#37 3 months ago

MMr LE looks so sad next to AFMr LE and MBr LE...Need this XL Display!

Quoted from Vpv1rgin:

First ones shipped nearly 4 years ago. Stern Vault stuff. JJP are poised to do a significantly revised YBR. Why shouldn't they?

If they upgraded MM's screen, ran the sound through a few filters as with MBr and AFMr, maybe improved the lighting and offered a new topper, with pricing brought in line, they'd probably sell another couple of thousand at least ... which would be particularly attractive to them if CCr and ToMr are still a long way off, as I suspect.

I'm an LE owner, and wouldn't offend me in the slightest! Don't offer a new LE, but offer a CE and SE (in line with the other remakes). Then offer a display kit for existing owners to upgrade to the larger screen.

PS - bear with me as I continue to find reasons to bump this thread...

Make sure the exsiting owners would get a sound upgrade as well tho.

100% agree. A really awesome topper wouldn't hurt either....

#42 3 months ago

My distributor said today that they don't expect to hear anything about CGC's plans for a MMr refresh (including a XL screen option) until at least April.....if they have anything planned for release at all.

You downvote the man for Sharing what his distributor told him?

LOL... Bad news.

I fixed it.

I totally agree. Could you imagine what MMr would look like if it was the next pin to be released. “I’m aware it was released already” but with everything they have learned so far as a company. Rgb lighting, topper, sound packages, other goodies, extended display, heck maybe even the new rad cals available..it would be awesome. But can you imagine the cost? Side note... I really really don’t like the LEDs used in MMr. I’m aware you can change the GI but it sucks comparatively to MBr and AFMr. Wishful thinking..

If they do another MMr with upgraded display and sound I would definitely be a buyer.
