    My MMRLE GI lighting is not always on. In fact GI lighting is only on when a castle is destroyed or multiball is achieved and only for so long as the flashers celebrating the accomplishment, then they go back out. The playfield therefore is very dark most of the time during play, illuminated by the flashers. GI tests show no error and GI lights work fine during tests. According to the MMR manual (p 1-20, para T.6) GI lighting strings 5 & 6 are always on, but not for me. Also the MMR manual says GI lighting brightness can be adjusted in the MMR system menu, but I do not see this option in the MMR system menu. All advice appreciated. TIA

    http://www.chicago-gaming.com/ Please scroll down to the Help Desk under Support and open a ticket.

    A couple thoughts. This really sounds like a loose connector. Please look around the underside of the playfield and check or push connectors for power to GI.

    To adjust GI brightness, please open the coin door, hold the ESCAPE button down 5 seconds or so, this gets you into the CGC menu for adjusting LEDs, coils, DMD base colors, etc.

    Lloyd, can you please shed some light on the gentleman's last point regarding the GI lighting brightness? I see where the brightness for the backbox is adjustable, but cannot locate the adjustment for playfield GI.

    Quoted from RGman:

    but cannot locate the adjustment for playfield GI.

    Did you read this part ?

    Quoted from LTG:

    It's in the CGC adjustments.

    I did read that, but I do not see the setting. Below is a snapshot of the lighting adjustment menu. I don't see brightness for the playfield GI. What am I missing? Settings.JPG

    The part that says INCANDESCENT EMULATION.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. That is the only thing you can play with for the GI and inserts.

    No worries. Yeah, I've played with the speed before but thought perhaps I was navigating the menu wrong when I couldn't find the brightness. I've seen where others have added spot lights to brighten up the playfield and think I'll go that route. Thanks!
