Thanks for the feedback...what's odd is that all of the rollover slots are similar to this. Here are a couple of other pics. This is a Royal...mfg date of 4/30 and delivered a week ago. Here are a couple other pics. Can someone post what they should look like on a Royal?

No doubt they look rough but not a major issue to resolve. Having purchased 2 other CGC games, my mbr had no issues and my afmr had some very minor issues including what your showing in the pictures. I really don't know what your other options are. Pretty sure CGC isn't going to replace the playfield for that. What type of recourse are you looking for?

#5903 1 year ago

A Dremel will clean that up in no time. From what I can see, this is a result of the blade at the end of it's serviceable life.

Not looking for any recourse - just looking to understand what I should expect as "normal" from a factory fresh playfield in 2020...as I stated, this is my first NIB.

#5905 1 year ago

I think I'd try something like a nail file board. Should be able to knock that down safety. I'd be afraid that a dremel would get away from me and damage something.

The only one I would be concerned with is the one pictured below, it appears to have gotten into the artwork.

That small impression is on all of my games, CGC and Stern, it’s designed to give the ball a center track so it always hits the switch dead center. I don’t have any games older than 1995, but all have this same feature.

The wood at the underside of the playfield is easy to clean up but arguably shouldn’t be there.

Awesome intel, thanks sir! I never noticed the small impression on my '04 POTC before I sold it and my TOM does not have any indentations/impressions on the top/bottom of the slots. Great to know that's part of the design even if it looks a bit rough. Thanks for clearing that up for me. As others have suggested, I'll take some sandpaper/small file and trim it up.

#5909 1 year ago

I went to check out my two original play fields for TAF and CV that I swapped. CV does not have the indents. TAF does. Maybe it’s about who made the playfield? TAC is Lenc Smith, and CV is CCC.

Now I want to know the history of this

Got my MMRRE setup this weekend! No major issues.

From first ball launch. Looks and plays like a dream! Zero dialing in required. I couldn’t be happier!

Do be careful putting the legs on.

With mine I noticed the glitter in the paint can make some of the edges of the legs serrated causing them to bite into the cab after being tightened down (even if you don’t over tighten!!!)

I have put some folded paper into those areas to protect the cab art from further damage!

Gonna install my mods next!

Someone had a cool damsel mod. I gotta find that.

Is there any reason for switching to PDI Optical non glare glass on the MMRRE?

#5913 1 year ago
Quoted from Zorada54:

I just installed it on my MMR and it was a night and day difference given my rooms lighting. Before I put it in, there we’re times when the combination of certain GI colors and my recessed lighting made me lose track of the ball. Two thumbs up for PDI+MMR from me.

#5914 1 year ago
Quoted from Zorada54:

Yeah, it's definitely worth it, at times my kids don't even think there's glass on the machine. I would get it while you can, it sells out at a decent rate and then it takes them a while to get it back in stock. Order multiple sheets if you have more then one pin, because they'll charge you the same for shipping whether it's one sheet of glass or multiple.

#5915 1 year ago

Well, looks like mine arrives tomorrow...after the 5000k mile run around. So I have that going for me....

Yikes, anyone have a recommendation for leg protectors for the RE? Thinking I should order some before mine arrives.

Nice. Still have no clue if mine has shipped. Cointaker keeps saying it is but no indication.

Yeah, I'm still waiting on the good word from my vendor. Pleased to see all the exciting unboxings, but have to admit a tinge of jealously is setting in the longer the wait goes on.

#5920 1 year ago
Quoted from hoopybox:

I put these on mine: https://www.pinballlife.com/pinguard-cabinet-protectors-set-of-4.html

I bought clear for some games and black for other games. On the RE, I like the way black looks. My MBr clear looks great. I have not tried other colors.

#5921 1 year ago

To my understanding, and already owning a CGC MBrLE, and currently own a MMrRE, the leg protectors are metal and installed at the factory. Both my CGC remakes have metal protectors. Also my understanding is to NOT USE the plastic ones that pinballlife sells on CGC remake machines. I may very well be wrong. Just be careful. I have those plastic ones for my older Bally Williams machines. Not for new ones. I’m pretty sure it can mess up the decals. LTG probably knows best

Lol. So true. It actually went to AZ and back in about 9 days....more vacation time than me so far this year. But good news is R&L is delivering tomorrow morning!

#5923 1 year ago

Leg protectors are a controversial topic. A quick search will tell you what I mean with lots of pics of damage.

Here is are a couple examples:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/leg-protectors/page/2
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/a-divided-opinion-leg-protectors-or-not#post-5599238

The big plastic, pinguard, pincab ones are good at covering up existing damage, but they will rub and wrinkle the decals on your cabinet in time and cause wear. I would strongly advise not putting them on a new game.

The smaller metal ones that fit behind the legs work well for new and I think someone mentioned they are possibly included on MMR?

Otherwise the felt ones work too.

#5924 1 year ago

I was removing some leftover wax that had worked its way under the starposts of my slingshots. When I was removing the uppermost starpost bolt/nut, I didn't realize it shared the anchor that goes thru and helps secure the left playfield safety bracket.

The other starposts bolts are secured differently than this one, and so when I went to remove it, I over-torqued the bolt and it broke.

I need the part# replacement and can't find it in the manual.

EDIT: Found the part...

In the meantime, I guess I'll pay the hardware store a visit.

Ugh. That really sucks

#5926 1 year ago

I just put adhesive felt on the inside of the legs to protect the cabinet. I would not put the plastic ones on ever again. Those are really nice to cover up damage. But for a new decaled game I will never use them again.

TonyVrd Thanks for the tip on the glass. Did you have to make any adjustments to the glass when received assuming you ordered the standard size?

You won't find that at a hardware store. Reach out to CGC and see if you get a kindness. Otherwise, that part is available at a few places if they say no.

New to hobby and looking for perspective on why. Why wouldn’t you use them? The protectors never touch the decal. It sits between the metal protectors and the metal legs. I attached a picture showing the card slides in easily between the cabinet and the plastic protectors.

Hmm looking at this post: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/mmr-owners-club-all-things-mmr-discussed/page/117#post-5633344
It looks like there are factory protectors - dashv Did the rough paint stick out that far or did yours not have the metal plates?

#5932 1 year ago
Quoted from Zorada54:

tonyvrd Thanks for the tip on the glass. Did you have to make any adjustments to the glass when received assuming you ordered the standard size?

Yes, standard size, no special adjustments, same sizing specifications as the one that comes on the machine. On a separate note, they sell a cleaning kit for the glass on PDI, but over priced, just use an ammonia free glass cleaner, some new microfiber towels you strictly dedicate to the glass, one to apply, one to wipe off, and one to dry off/detail and you’re good

#5933 1 year ago

So, proud owner of 4114 today! Just curious, my volume wont go below 8. Will go up to whatever, but wont go below 8. I don't see anything obvious in settings that I need to change. Any thoughts?

FWIW, my AFMr came with metal protectors pre-installed:

#5937 1 year ago
Quoted from Jj557:

I just swapped out my battery and also had a substance on it....I am pretty sure it’s battery acid. Swapping out did not fix for me...I am worried the battery compartment could be damaged from the leakage. Not sure if there is a way to test.

I had the same issue (no time progress while machine is off and a white substance on the battery) and tested the battery to check if it was at fault. It was showing full voltage on the tester, so the battery is ok. :shrug. Not sure if the white stuff is avoiding battery to make proper contact

#5938 1 year ago

I have the RE and noticed that the ball always bounces a little bit before entering the left flipper, this makes it very hard to hit the ramp to the princess castle. Any advice on what adjustment I need to make to fix this? (This is my first pinball). This video shows the problem:

You should be able to loosen and raise up the lane guide metal and platic a little bit

Yes. Machine looks untouched. It's the open space inside the box.

I'll be opening it up in a few hours when I get back.

#5943 1 year ago

Just got my RE shipping notice! Anyone in the market for a lightly used mmrLE in gold?

Would you all have refused that delivery above? I’m wondering what I would do if mine arrives like that.

#5944 1 year ago

That's a tough call. Even though it looks like nothing was damaged, maybe it was and you wouldn't know until its unboxed. Worst part of getting a game shipped-seeing the box damaged and having to make a decision. I don't think most drivers will wait while you unbox. Could be wrong.

Unless you got a tracking number it’s going nowhere. Same thing happened to me. Also heard they may get fined for staying open. Could be closed soon.

#5947 1 year ago

Shoot. Well that would suck but i can be patient. It’s not supposed to ship till Friday so I guess you could be right. We will see.
