Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

I’m also not patient. But if they do close then that will really suck.

Mines coming from PPS. What about yours?

Quoted from TimBoch:

Yikes. Sad to see what weeks worth of unneeded travel has done. Sure hope everything is safe inside.

Thanks Tim, no worries here. I've received enough deliveries to know what's damaged inside or not...the extra travel just made me appreciate it more when it arrived today.

Just put it all together. Only have a very tiny blemish of the back of the back box. Nothing to worry about! That's great news to me.

I'll end up adding the mods I have later. However, here's a pic of it all setup, working and no errors after setting the date/time.

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?

Mine had the metal plates. For two of the four legs I can’t fit a playing card cleanly between the legs and the cab.

#5955 57 days ago

Also, forgot to mention I found this piece of plastic under the lock down bar.

It has adhesive on the other side. Not 100% sure where it goes but, the lane for the castle multiball lock area is bare wood? Does it go there?

On inside of the lock down bar to prevent the end from scraping the side rail.

Check the other side to see where it goes.

Many thanks! Think I should submit a ticket about the biting legs? I’m a little afraid to nudge the machine and cause more damage.

I don't see anything wrong there. It looks like you did get interesting placement of the wood grain there by chance.

I now know why I found that piece inside. The lockdown bar will not go back on with that piece there. It’s too tight of a fit. Instead I just put a few layers of Electrical tape where it it was supposed to go. Now it fits snug but no danger of scratching.

That said, I noticed this mark running down the front of the cab when I first opened the box.

I didn’t mention it on here before because I asked my distributor this weekend if there is a safe way to try to wipe it off.

I tried a damp micro fiber cloth and it got a lot but not all of it off.

What else is safe for me to try? Haven’t heard back from my distributor yet.

Yes. Just a weird placement of grain. Next to AFMRLE....which is the cleanest of wood. No biggie. Just more of a reminder pic when I goto clean it.

I had the same thing on my MR LE, on side of cabinet....thought it was a scrape. Just used some soap and water on rag....it came off with a little rubbing and didn't deform the decal at all.

Mine fell off as well I put it back but now the lockdown bar is really tough to get back on the side where it fell off.

Has anyone verified that CGC has stopped shipping games? Did the law come knocking?

#5970 57 days ago
Quoted from DylanFan71:

As of now still shipping. I was told they ran out of a few parts. More games ship next week.

I had those on my MMrRE when I unboxed it. One side was off, the other was still stuck on. However, the lockdown bar, no matter what, would NOT go on the game with both tabs. So I took both tabs off and adjusted the screws so it would fit tight. I think I’ll go with the electrical tape the other guy said. I feel like this is a CGC issue. Not an issue to worry about or file a claim for. But maybe they need to use an even thinner piece.

#5974 56 days ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

Nope not a wrinkle. something black made a streak down the front.

Light rubbing with a damp microfiber glass cloth only took off so much. Nervous to scrub and cause scratches.

#5975 56 days ago
Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

I was just told my RE is delayed from Friday to Wednesday to ship based on a board for the topper not available.

#5976 56 days ago
Quoted from WishyWashyPony:

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:
https://vimeo.com/417465049
thanks!

I have had a reoccurring problem with the left flipper on my AFMr. The flipper post bushing has broken four times. I havent been able to determine why so I replaced the whole mechanism, for now it is holding up. Might be something to look into because a fractured/worn bushing changes the post position. If you can move the flipper to and fro without rotating it, you have a bushing problem.

#5977 56 days ago
Quoted from Gumby510:

Same thing happened to me. The side piece fell off and it’s really hard to get the bar to go down. I still love the game, but honestly a bit disappointed with CGC. I haven’t received a response on my ticket regarding the issue with time not keeping. I understand we are in a pandemic, but if you are going to ship a 10K game that’s faulty out of the box you should at least have some basic customer support coverage.

Sorry, double post.

Try one of those mr clean foam magic erasers. Just try one little spot.

#5980 56 days ago

I know these are super expensive toys and perfection is expected at this price point. In my experience, all of that anxiety created by having this perfect toy takes ALOT of the enjoyment away from having the game.

I did a crazy expensive restore on a D&D and buffed the playfield out to a mirror. I got so focused on getting it perfect that the first scratch in the clear (during assembly under a ramp you will never see) I had to walk away from it for a week. After getting it all back together, it was the nicest best playing game I ever had.

The point is until there was a scratch and I could get past the perfect, I didn’t really enjoy the game. It was just that mint in box collectible I was more worried about having then playing

No way. Those are abrasive. I’ll have scratches for sure.

I get that. I’m not expecting absolute perfection. I also don’t want clear cosmetic issues on the front. If it was the side, no one would ever know but me until I disclosed it when I sold it.

It’s also the first thing I saw when I opened the box. So they had to see it before they closed it up.

The left one ? Is so page 1-15 in the manual, lower the strength on your R Popper Strength.

It shoots the ball straight at your left flipper. On AFM and AFMR you'll get more busted left flipper bushings because of this.

Ok. ....

Has anyone put their custom logo on the MMRRE?

I've done the others I have but this one is just not taking it.
Opened a new 16, 32, 64 and 128g msd from the package. All new and genuine Sandisk.

Game keeps telling me unable to mount card.
The file is a simple 320x80 bmp. Same file I used on the others .

It's not telling me it doesn't like the file, it's stating that it cannot mount the card.

Any ideas? I'm missing something.

Does the same card work on the others (not just the file)?

#5986 55 days ago
Quoted from mbeardsley:

I looked for the card I used on the others....IIRC a 128gb card was the one that worked.

What I'm using are new out of package. Shows they're already 32 fat....but I'll try a full format just in case....

I guess I could try to use this card on one of the others, but didn't really want to check that way. Ugh. Lazy today I guess. Thought it would just take a few minutes....nope.

Microfiber and a light damp/soap scrub?

Had the same problem, no solution so far. Another user on here mentioned they tried a card and image that worked in their Monster Bash, worked on MB not in his RE. Same error, could not mount SD card.

#5989 55 days ago
Quoted from evh347:

I opened a ticket with CGC on the date/time not holding while the game is powered off. The response I got was that I should replace the CR2032 battery. So I did. Initially, there was no change in behavior, but I may have been premature on assuming it was not fixed. The last couple days, the date/time clock seems to be running in the background while the machine is powered off. The tech did say he was going to escalate to an engineer before I realized the date/time was moving normally, albeit slow.
Timboch reported what looked like white grease on the back of his stock CR2032 Battery and it was on the board too when he went to clean it off with a Q-tip. I had a bit of that white grease on my battery too, but I didn’t think about checking the board at the time.
The other remakes in my collection have not had a date/time advancement problem.

Thanks again, I've replaced the battery and it looks like it's keeping time now.

Added 53 days ago:

Spoke too soon, two days in a row now I get the test report error 'Time/date not set' and I have to go in and set it again. Re-opening ticket with CGC.

this was often posted here, that sd card cannot be mounted; seems a SW bug.
You have Beta 3 too?

I'll have to look which version.
Good to know I'm not too crazy. When you try multiple new cards, old cards, formatting etc and it isn't smooth....just becomes frustrating. I'm sure a fix will come someday.
Appreciate the heads up!

see older posts (esp. the one where a guy has tested the same card with an MBR and it works; Beta 3; this is really an issue. How to update the pin without mounting a SD Card?

What was funny was that I could update the software no problem, so it can read the cards for that purpose. Just not to load the custom image.

I had the same issue with mine. It goes under lock bar. I spoke to Ryan at CGC he said he was not happy with the glue on that piece of plastic sticking to the powder coated lock bar. I just put some epoxy glue and it went over well.

Your setup looks good!
