    Ah, already read that but didn't remember. Thank you.

    I don't understand the issue? This is what stern distrib's usually do... Take interest, if you want, you usually put a deposit in, unless you are friendly with your distrib. and then go forward with purchase. If you don't want to give money, do as he says and buy it from PPS or a distributor that has a game ready to go.

    Maybe the issue is that they want to deliver the games people are still waiting for from two years ago before they say the next one is ready and start collecting on that. I wouldn't be surprised if they go ahead and do that anyway though.

    ......I'm still waiting....

    I think they'll turn and copy what Stern does. Works better with less freak outs. Unlike JJP who seem to back log then sell to new orders asap......

    Issue is Rick stated publicly (and repeatedly) the next game there would be no pre-orders. This was during the heat of battle when no games were being produced. Now they are practically done and he's ready to start this again. I know it must be nice to have a bank of orders, but is there any chance they aren't going to sell every single game they can build? And is there any indication that the games would be built faster than the trickle that was MMr production? Why would they want to put themselves through this again? The answer is simple of course.

    And in fairness if someone put down money on Ghostbusters in April of 2014 you could compare this to how Stern does business. I know they take orders for games that aren't built but the wait is weeks or months, not years.

    Sure, but after being paid in full for 2 years now... I will never pre-pay a game again. Just look, last month or so, PPS had MMR LE's waiting to ship to customers. JJP does it. If people are making the choice to pay before, then fine, they do not have to, games will still be made and sold. This really is all because of us stupid buyers

    Do you have to pre-order to get the free diffusers?

    Quoted from o-din:

    I think they are sending them to current owners if requested?

    #308 4 years ago

    What do I have to do to get on the diffuser train? File a support ticket?

    Sign in blood that you won't demand a new playfield.

    Or you can wait for the next S/W drop, which is supposedly going to have an adjustment for LED brightness.

    Quoted from LTG:

    Please do so.
    LTG : )

    Done. I think. I'm just guessing it's through the support page at CGC -- haven't actually done this before now.

    the argument it's caused by LEDs being too bright is crap. This is just a bandaid to try to minimize the effect.

    Yeah, Metallik posted some pretty damning pictures of his original MM with the brightest LED he could find behind the inserts - still black as night. The ink is just bad on the MMR playfields.

    I think CGC said to go through your distributor to get the diffuser. It was in one of the threads somewhere.

    Quoted from Drewblood419:

    Not sure if I need it, but I filed a ticket and was told to contact my distributor. They got in touch with CGC and it's apparently coming.

    I might install it, I might not. But if it's being offered to customers who ask for it, I like the option.

    #317 4 years ago

    I'd say go ahead and install it the installation really wasn't that bad it took about an hour and I think the overall appearance is much better regardless

    #318 4 years ago

    Sounds like CGC is at least trying to diffuse the situation.
