I was told there would be 350 Royal's made, but I am sure that # could change. Still waiting on my shipping date...

Nah....no big deal....happy for u guys....have they provided any information on upgrading the RGB kit ?

no not yet, was looking in the website for instructions but nothing - maybe cgc-ryan could share them ?

There isn't anything on line.

I haven't gotten them yet. My understanding is that good detailed instructions ship with the kits.

I was told the same , I think this is the last run for a long time if ever. The Royal is crazy Beautiful. I think it still is the King

I have 2 Royals in the box and Original that gorgeous

I never thought I’d own one. Imagine. Most popular pin of all time. Remade with modern technology even better. New in box. I’m so amazed I’m afraid to open it. Well, that and I need to finish other pin projects to make room for it.

#6307 7 months ago

I was playing the other day and now all of the sudden the balls are having trouble making it from trough to shooter lane. Ball goes up and comes back down. Happens intermittently. What is the best way to fix that?

#6308 7 months ago

Here is the picture where ball comes out and getting stuck.

My MMRLE started doing that for a week or so then the problem just went away. It was really strange. Works 99.9% of the time now on first try.

The coil or coil assembly is probably loose.

Is the table leveled side to side?

Yes it is very level side to side.

#6313 7 months ago

I have the same problem with my MBr...don't know what it causing it.

It seems to happen mostly when trying to start multiball (i.e. when the trough is less than full), but whenever I try to diagnose the problem it goes away.

Frustrating.

First thing to try is making the Trough Pop Strength stronger in the CGC menu. Page 1-10 in the manual on how to access it or this video -

Next thing is if the ball hits the metal flap that should divert it to the shooter lane and bounces back down, then this. For WOZ but same principle :

#6315 7 months ago

At least for me, the problem seems to be that the kick is inconsistent. Most of the time it is fine, but sometimes it seems to get a weak kick that doesn't make it up to the top. It does not look like the flap is the problem.

I have a similar problem with the ball launching. Most of the time it's fine, but sometimes it gets a weak kick that fails to put the ball into play and it rolls back down the shooter lane. I have tried adjusting the strengths, but, while it DOES make the "normal" kicks stronger, it still gets a "weak" kick about 10%-20% of the time.

The trough is the bigger problem for me. Occasionally, it has such a problem starting multi-ball that the ball-saver is finished before it has successfully launched all the balls. It seems like it happens more often when the trough is not full - but that may just be because it is more frustrating in that case.

Coil sleeve installed correctly and in there ? Nothing loose ?

Did you get the GI upgrade as well? What does that entail? I'm stillllll waiting...and am very jealous

Edit: Just noticed you have to drill new holes! Drilling into the game is always scary to me...

#6319 7 months ago

yes I did but these aren't my upgrades, some buddies in the UK. Mine arrives tomorrow, and yes that's the bit of the upgrade I'm most nervous about although Ryan did say that whilst its time consuming its not hard.

also make sure you upgrade to 3.0 before starting...

My Royal is shipping tomorrow. Super excited !

#6322 7 months ago

MM-4243 arrived today. First nib and an amazing game.

I've got some cliffy's and titan rings to install, but mostly just enjoying it so far.

The most unexpected thing is how long it takes to boot. First time I turned it on, I thought it was dead.

They do take a bit to boot. Well worth the wait. Enjoy your new game!

#6324 7 months ago

I set my RE up on Friday night flipped the switch and the playfield blinked for a sec and then just dark. I thought ohh crap it’s dead on arrival and my heart sank. Then a few seconds later the screen can to life and all was good. Felt a lot better after the first game.

Mine did the same thing over the weekend. It was so bad the game went into ball search and then the ball ended after it counted 4 balls in the trough. I could see it hitting the metal diverter flap and falling back down. I think the balls got stacked and the kicker could not push both up hard enough to get the top ball out. Once they all got flat in a row in the trough it did not happen again. If it does I will adjust the diverter a bit and see if that fixes it. The problem happens when two balls get stacked on top of the VUK.

#6326 7 months ago

First upgrade MMR LE goes to Julian Not sure if he is on pinside! Still waiting for the RGB kits apparently although mine is supposed to arrive today. Topper isn’t on as he is waiting for a wider drill bit to rub the cables down the top.

My kit arrives at 3pm UK time and I’ll be streaming the build!

Yes I thought the same thing as well. I do know my MBLE at least has the speaker lights that come one right away while it boots up so you know its working. I wonder if they could do some sort of code thing to make that happen with MMRE

#6328 7 months ago

neilmcrae Yep I'm on Pinside.

A word from the wise (thanks for help on this Neil) BEFORE you fit the XL display upgrade to v3 of the game firmware.

This display has got me wanting the other two games now lol

Doing the topper install tomorrow when my 1½" drill bit arrives, not looking forward to that!
No instructions for the topper install which is poor considering the cost of the kit!

I still haven't seen an email from Planetary since February...

Glad to see y'all getting yours tho.

It's just the lucky guys in the UK getting the kits as they were shipped over in a container with machines. They haven't started shipping USA orders yet. Hopefully soon!

Just unboxed my Royal today... 4258, which I am guessing is Royal #58????

That would be Royal #258 (of 350)

#6337 7 months ago

Scott9: Your Royal looks beautiful, congrats!
Mine is being delivered tomorrow. So psyched.

#6338 7 months ago

Just received today my MMR alternate translite from Brian Allen @ Flyland Designs! Looks great and I think Brian did a great job! My only question now is if I should still get the new topper or just limit myself to the RGB lighting update!

Hey guys- dont forget to post in the MMRRE-Tracking thread - at some point it would be nice to have Pinside actually create a sub category for it in the Top 100 as well

New topper is definitely cool- I do find that it has great detail on the figures but the light show is not as nice as the MBRLE's

MMR LE 575 now with wide screen

not sure why pinside has started to do that with photos!

#6346 7 months ago

Fixed it for you. I hate playing pinball sideways.

The game looks so much better with this change - thanks again to CGC for making this update available and thanks for developing it for AFM and MB.

Now we are waiting the GI update which we think has a a crucial board that controls all the lights on the topper, the speakers and the LED GI. But from my POV I'm super happy and happy to wait for the rest of the kit. Thanks to doug_duba and cgc-ryan

Cheers,
Neil.

#6348 7 months ago
Quoted from NeilMcRae:

It is not necessarily pinside, but the web browsers. The problem is when the camera (or phone) is rotated, the image is still written in the original pixel order (so the image itself looks rotated). There is metadata in the image that says how it should be rotated, but that information is not read or written in a manner that is standard across all software (rotating images 90 degrees typically just modifies that metadata instead of actually touching the image data). I've had the same problem with images being hosted on my website. I had to write a script I run on the images that rotates the actual image and removes that metadata so all browsers show the image correctly for my various websites.

#6349 7 months ago

Question, isn’t the drawbridge to the castle drop all the way down when it first lowers? Mine sits up at a 20 Degree angle and I have to hit it a couple times before it levels out.

#6350 7 months ago

It should flush completely with the play field when it first lowers. Did you install the Mantis protector? When I did it initially blocked the drawbridge from lowering all the way, I had to adjust it to get the drawbridge to sit flush.
