If I remember right, You take the sd card from the game and put the new code on it.

#8653 61 days ago

All of the instructions are on the Chicago gaming website, along with the version 3.0 update.

#8654 61 days ago
Quoted from foxtj24:

Not quite right.

Load the update on a micro SD card. Insert on board in the backbox. Turn game on, it updates. Turn game off. Remove micro SD card.

Cool. Thanks. I don’t have the game w/me at this time and will be visiting it soon and want to get everything together before I see it (long story) for a proper update as it deserves. This game is a pinnacle in pinball and I want to make sure it gets proper respect when I work on it and let others play it. I appreciate the input.

Anyone get these screen pics while they were updating their MMR?
It’s always at the 1min 5sec (time remaining).
I’ve reset it in and reboot it a few times already.

Yes.

Turn your game off. Remove micro SD card. Put the light tub and backglass back.

Turn your game on. When fully booted. Go into CGC menu. First page. Your game now has 3.0.0

That is the way some of the earlier beagle boards responded. Nothing failed. You aren't missing anything in the update. It's all in there.

Thanks Lloyd/pinside.
I thought I “brick”the board!
I’ll start a few games later today. My MMR is an early version w/gold.

#8664 54 days ago
Quoted from Bigbossfan:

Having a major issue with my MMR. First, important to know, I've moved recently. So, pin was moved from my basement, onto a moving truck, transported about 2000 KM's, offloaded into long term storage for 7 weeks, loaded back onto a truck, offloaded, and moved into my house. So, yes, that's lots of bouncing around!
Having said this, once I had an opportunity to play a game, I turned it on, booted absolutely no problem. Played ball one and two, got to ball three, mid way through, it just went completely dead.
Fuses at F1, F2, F3, F4 checkout fine. Fuses on the solenoid boards are all good (LED's are lit up on those boards). I'm not sure if there are LEDs on the PCB, but nothing lit there, nor any of the other boards. My repair skills are novice at the best, so I don't have a clue where to begin. Any assistance sure would be appreciated. I had to downsize my collection and this is one of two I kept............HELP! LOL

Good morning to all! Well, the success was short lived. MMR is dead again. However, this time around I believe I've figured out that the issue is with the shaker. Was playing again this weekend, launched into all multiballs, shaker going off like crazy as is expected, then suddenly the game just shut down again.

To save those so inclined the trouble, this is what I've been able to figure out so far.

1. Power is fine at the main box (sorry, not sure of the exact terminology).
2. Power is getting to the solenoid boards.
3. This is the second time, the pin just shuts down after launching into multiball and the shaker motor starts going.
4. Given that I was able to rectify the problem last time by unseating and reconnecting all the connectors under the playfield, I've tried that again this time, but no luck so far.
5. I'm thinking it has to be the shaker making a connector loose somewhere.

Naturally this is a pain in the ass to try and figure out. I'd like to determine which connectors I should check first, that would be the culprit for cutting out the power to get the pin going and keep it going, so that I can hot glue it on the board so this stops. Can anyone suggest which connectors I should look at first?

Hope this all makes sense, and thanks in advance for any guidance/assistance!

Hot glue in pinballs sounds like a bad solution. Find the bad contact and replace it properly instead.

Maybe inspect the shaker itself, might be some electrical problem with it and it shorts while shaking.

#8666 54 days ago

I am selling my very nice dragon topper with red LED eyes and green strip of LEDs to light from underneath. I bought another topper at Pinfest just to mix it up.

$110 shipped

Spooky seem to hot glue a lot of their connectors in place on the boards, presumably to stop them vibrating out in transit and play. Just a dab on each end of the connector will do no harm and peels off easy for service.

100% it doesnt damage anything I did it on my WOZ with a lightboard that had a loss connector.

What’s the biggest changes from the 2015 remake to the 2019? I’m mostly comparing the 2015 MMr LE vs 2019 MMr SE

#8670 49 days ago

Driver board in backbox rather than three of them under the playfield.

Thanks for the response. Is that anything I would notice as a player (a lousy one at that)? Does the three driver boards layout create any history of problems? Should I be hesitant at all on buying the 2015 LE version?

#8672 49 days ago
Quoted from Whynot:

NO.

No.

Quoted from Whynot:

They are identical. Easy to interchange to check anything. In tech support the only thing I've seen. And not a lot. Is you might have to reseat one of them if some coils don't work. There is a row of pins on one side that plug into the huge board below the playfield. Turn game off. Leave connectors on. Remove screws. Unplug board. Plug it back in. Push nubs on tops of pins to get a good seat. Put screws back in. Done.

In case anyone else runs into this problem, where you pin shuts down mysteriously. I guess during the move, one of the screws came loose on the power supply. I was at my wits end, took the cover off the power supply, wriggled the wires around, turned the pin on, and it came to life. Turned if off, got my screwdriver, sure enough, the screw second from the right was quite loose, I suspect, when the shaker would go off, it would lose contact, and cut the power. Anyway, my problem is solved. Hopefully it may help someone in the future.

Maybe frustrating but nice easy fix.

#8676 48 days ago

My MMR castle gate has been slowly degrading in performance. Meaning the gate open hit wont work, and the only way to fix it is to let the ball search cycle. It’s happened more and more frequently and now the ball search cycle will not reset it. I suspect I need to replace the whole actuator but I’m not sure. I am also finding this part a bit hard to find. Any thoughts? Maybe I don’t need the whole assembly and just the actuator part? Thx for any advice!

#8677 48 days ago

I just noticed on my MMR standard that the castle wall door hinge (for the ball lock) is staying open. I removed the glass and it swings back and forth, it just dies not swing easily. Any advice on how to get it to swing shut. Thanks.

Quoted from mrcosmo:

I'd remove the castle front and investigate why, what's binding it. Remove the castle turrets. Then the whole castle front pulls up and out. Then it will be easier to figure out.

dont use WD40 at a pin, attracts the dirt and smells terrible for a long time and quality is worst.
Use Ballistol, finest quality with less smell.

I would go into test and see/verify the switches for the gate. Open, close, being hit by a ball. I would first suspect it just isn’t adjusted right, first. Then move on to part replacement.

Tests - Switch Edge - roll a ball through the swinging castle door - does the switch on the moat under the playfield register ? If not check the switch. It is on the green moat under the playfield. See if it's loose, not plugged in, need adjusting.

Thx for the advice. I’ve narrowed it down a bit. The castle gate power test works consistently when the board is at 45 degrees (middle upright position) but much less than that and it won’t work at all. I’ve confirmed the gate slides smoothly. It’s as if even the smallest amount of gravitational resistance at less than 45 degrees and it stops functioning completely. Does this mean the solenoid is bad?

#8688 39 days ago
Quoted from rrath03:

Does this mean the solenoid is bad?

No. A solenoid doesn't know what 45 degrees is.

Have you tried this ?

Easy to do. Remove balls. Turn game off. Lift playfield up and lean back. Find the driver board. No need to unhook the connectors. Remove the screws holding the driver board to the huge board under the playfield. Unplug the driver board. It has a row of ten pins along one edge. Then plug the driver board back in. Press the tops of those ten pins to get a good seat.

People have had problems reseating the solenoid driver boards due to the huge board flexing away when they push in the pins. A solution that worked was having them put a piece of foam or cardboard between the playfield wood and the socket on the huge board, to hold it from flexing. They just have to be careful of nearby LEDs.

#8690 38 days ago

I'm not sure if it was this thread, or the other MM thread that people were looking for "drop dead foam: I did some looking at local hardware stores, and found a dense, closed cell foam to try out in the Merlin scoop. Mine was better after installing the Mantis scoop, but still bounced out 1/3 of shots. After installing this, I haven't had a single reject!

I was having a second issue in the castle wall section of the moat: if the ball rolled against the left wall, it wouldn't trigger the switch. I used another piece of this foam on the wall of that section of the moat and have now not missed a single ball lock.

Edit: be sure to look at the fine print. This isn't the soft, spongy stuff of yesteryear. They need to update the main text of the packaging.

Question... Are the MMRR toppers all sold out? Any retailers have any left for sale?

Pin-Pilot. Hi it’s probably weeks too late but i’ve found some stock on https://www.shop.freddys-pinball-paradise.de/index.php
I’m based in the Uk & they are in Germany. But I think they ship to most places. Unfortunately I missed out on a Royal MMR. I had it reserved for a day this time last year but couldn’t get it due to work being limited etc. I’ve just ordered a topper as in the future i’m hoping Cgc will make another run of cabinets, but not sure if they will make more toppers. I can see most people say there will be no more Royals. But I would be happy with a SE or even a CE. Have also ordered a shaker too. Just hope I don’t have to wait too long

Thanks for the thought. I was able to find one thanks to a friendly Pinside. It is sitting on top of my MMRLE. I just need to get to installing it.

I’ve sent a sales query to CGC regarding a new run of MMR, but had no response. Also talked to my distributor Phil at Pinball Heaven, he has no current information either. So I sent another message using the support desk: https://chicagogamingcompany.freshdesk.com/support/discussions/topics/12000027336
This time I had a response from George Bork who appears to be a Director of Tech Support & Logic Repair at CGC. He responded “There are no plans in the near future for a run of MMR”. The only positive I can see is the word “near”, so that kind of implies more will be made at some point. But doesn’t tell me when! Does anyone else have any input regarding this comment? Do people think 1, 2, 3 years plus? Also I missed out on a RE MMR (in UK). So hearing that they may not make more Royals, is it likely that we will just see Specials & Standard cabs? I’m would want all the new upgrades so would lean towards a special. I’ve ordered a topper after much searching & a shaker motor so hopefully will have most of the upgrades to get near a RE. I can see the Xl screen & GI lights upgrades are sold out, if I was only able to get a CE do people think more upgrades will be made in the future? Sorry for the long post any feedback would be appreciated

That’s fantastic, thanks for sharing! Early 2023 gives me plenty of time to save for a SE & I have topper & shaker ordered so one less thing to worry about getting. The Cactus Canyon game sounds awesome too! I only have budget & room for one pin atm.

The only positive I can see is the word “near”, so that kind of implies more will be made at some point. But doesn’t tell me when! Does anyone else have any input regarding this comment? Do people think 1, 2, 3 years plus? Also I missed out on a RE MMR (in UK). So hearing that they may not make more Royals, is it likely that we will just see Specials & Standard cabs? I’m would want all the new upgrades so would lean towards a special. I’ve ordered a topper after much searching & a shaker motor so hopefully will have most of the upgrades to get near a RE. I can see the Xl screen & GI lights upgrades are sold out, if I was only able to get a CE do people think more upgrades will be made in the future? Sorry for the long post any feedback would be appreciated

Okay so Stern's models are Pro- premium-Le

First: CGC announced more upgrade kits to be available soon, please wait for those.

Second, I advise anyone to avoid Freddy’s pinball…
I bought the topper kit early this year at Freddy when it was still the ‘normal’ price of roughly 720 euro I think (have receipt)
Now when they are sold out on most places, they start asking almost 1000 euros (obviously in the mean time their site said ‘sold out’). even though they are an official cgc distributor??
The retail price was USD 700 if I’m not mistaken(in europe you need to add 21% VAT).
Shouldn’t they stick to list prices?

You all should know that Freddy’s pinball here in thr EU is famous for telling you the parts/game you just ordered is sold out (especially CE’s of JJP games), unless you cough up cash and 50% more than market retail price, and then you can come get it anyway.
They don’t sell all games/parts to be distributed to customers, they ‘hide’ a certain percentage to sell it later off the market or at higher price, just that you all know.

I think they got a bunch of complaints at JJP, at least they know about it…
