Quoted from f3honda4me:

Dumb question. Is there a way to make the speech louder without affecting the music volume?

I was hoping this was going to be addressed in the new update. The speech really needs to be boosted.

Me too! Come on CGC sell us the upgrade kits!

Who is GCG ?

Patience my good man. You are a bit excited. With good reason.

Disclaimer : I hope GCG ships mine too. So I have a handle on questions about them if I get any.

#5005 5 months ago

Got the call this afternoon that my MMrSE will be picked up by my distributor tomorrow and will ship on Monday. Unfortunately, it will probably not get to me before I leave town next Thursday for 6 days. Excited to become a serf in the kingdom.

#5006 5 months ago

MMRRE must be right around the corner

#5007 5 months ago

I talked with my distributor today, and they expect the RE to still be another 6-12 weeks. I hate needing to be patient.

Is the new MMr CE made with some upgrades from the original remakes several years ago?

#5011 5 months ago

Starting to pick up some mods for my MMrSE. I am guessing the RGB trough light from MB should work the same for MMrSE?

https://lermods.com/shop?olsPage=products%2Fmonster-bash-remake-pinball-led-strip-interactive-rgb-trough-light-kit-sele

Same for the undercabinet?

https://lermods.com/shop?olsPage=products%2Fmonster-bash-remake-sele-pinball-led-strip-undercabinet-light-kit

Any other MUST have mods? Would like some cool plastic protectors put the florescent green on my MB and they look awesome with the black light effect from the colored GI.

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Not a dumb question at all as this has been a point of contention ever since the first MMr's were produced. I think we all were hoping that upgrading the sound system to that which was used on AFMr LE and MBr LE would have resulted in at least some improvement of the speech being out-volumed by the fanfare, but alas it seems not. CGC knows what needs to be done to correct this. They are now selling $9000 and $10,000 versions of this game. Will this ever be resolved?

I would check with lermods first, I was actually just talking to him about this yesterday.

I fixed the volume on my call outs a few years back, and offered to either release custom firmware or release the tool so others could do it. I was immediately contacted by PPS and told I was not able to do this, as it violated their IP. I then offered the tool to them so they could do it themselves and was told their sound engineer was going to work on it. This was back on July 24th 2016. 3 1/2 years later it's still not fixed.

I'm not sure why this is so difficult.

#5018 5 months ago

I own a MMR LE, added color to the display, and am considering the new XL display.
Q: What is the anticipated resale value of the old display/grill assembly? I assume the color chip stays with the XL.

I believe our interactive undercab and rgb trough lights will work with the new version of mmr. But before I start selling these, I want be sure I don’t blow up anyone’s game. F3honda will be testing for me and he should have the mods early next week. Better to blow up his game than everyone else’s.

I’ll report back next week when they are available. Our other mods, like Merlin, archer, catapult and dragon I don’t believe will work in their current configuration as there are no light sockets. I need to investigate further and check the wiring schematic.

Wow....unfortunately its in their DNA to be several months behind schedule....I guess that means upgrades won't be available for another 2-4 months....only 6 months behind schedule

The chip stays yes. I am not sure of the resale as it doesn't seem like many of these fail and need replacing. I am not aware of a way to make these work on other non CGC remake games.

If my basement starts on fire, I'm going to be very sad.

And yea they changed the LEDs up very different from previous. It's now the same type of bulb system they use in like MBR and AFMR.

#5025 5 months ago

Something else to note. The newest remake has version 3.0.0 "beta" version installed. This is different from the 2.0.2 available on CGC website and what is on the first remakes.

I'm reaching out to CGC to see if they have 3.0.0 available somewhere should it ever be needed. Also curious if the 2.0.2 is compatible with the newest run of remakes or not. My guess would be NO so make sure you make note of that if you need to reinstall your software on the newest remakes!

#5026 5 months ago

If I may ask f3honda4me, how is the build quality and playability of your game? Does anything stand out, good or not so? Thanks.

Quoted from ABT12:

To me I think the build is great. The game looks beautiful. This could just be completely psychological, but I feel like it's better looking than the first remakes. My wife made the same comment. I'd have to put them side by side in person to really tell but having played an original MM as well as the first remake extensively, this one does seem "better" somehow.

Awesome, thank you. That's great to hear.

3.0.0 will be available at some point. Don't worry about restore or reinstall right now. Be patient.

2.0.2 won't operate your game right. And most likely 3.0.0 won't work right in older games without the kits installed.

It was more just being proactive about getting 3.0.0. When I got my MBR I had to reinstall the software from scratch per support within a week of getting it as there was "something" wrong where a couple switches would falsely report they were not working but worked in manual tests. Reinstalling fixed it. My MMR is flawless right now but was just wondering.

They’ve upgraded the cabinets since the first runs.

Would be cool for the folks that have the SEs rolling in if they could show pics of the new RGB GI options from the menu.
If I recall:
- Interactive
- Cool White
- Warm White
- CE white

Give 1st run owners an idea, before buying the RGB kit.

I would imagine the same as for MBR - page 1-14 in the manual.

Green
Blue

Pics are kinda useless since camera phones tend to mess with color.

puuuh, that´s a very long time.
That means the exports will take even longer and the add-ons will be available in about half a year (until all RE's are finished).

Topper ordered, I think I need a shaker too now.

Well, I had been on the fence about the light kit for my old SE but I just put my order in. The code update puts it over the top for me into a must-have. Topper and screen are for down the road when I'm rich -- if they're still avail, and if I'm ever rich. But the lights are in your face literally the entire time you play, and the FOMO of the updated code would eat at me every time I played too!

#5040 5 months ago

Who are you guys ordering the kits thru?

I ordered my kit through Planetary back in October...at the time they stated shipping was 1-3 months

The shaker in MMr great. Add for sure!

#5043 5 months ago

How do you order a kit? I went to Planetary Pinball and I cant find anything. I tried calling and the number doesn't work. any help please.

#5044 5 months ago

I 2nd this

#5045 5 months ago

Waiting on this as well

#5046 5 months ago

I’ve emailed sara@pps.com regarding my kit upgrade order. You could try that.

#5047 5 months ago

I ordered with kingpin games — just got my name of their list at this point.

Edit - they said they’ll contact me for payment when there’s a firmer shipment date. Right now it’s just a vague late march delivery and I'm sure it’s uncertain until they ask for payment.

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Shaker is fantastic on this game!

#5049 5 months ago

Kingpin should be able to take orders for kits, toppers, etc

#5050 5 months ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

Agreed. One call to KingPinGames and ordered the set. To get expedited service text/call him after 2am. Think they noted that kits will not surface until Royal games have shipped which is understandable and fine by me.
