I just watched the presentation CGC had at Southern Fried Gaming Expo on YouTube. They are making more MMr in early 2023

Thanks, looking forward to announcing my membership in early 2023

On the MMR comparison table for the SE it says back panel lighting. What is that, is it the back of playfield or the back box? Also I see in some earlier posts people who were adding upgrades were saying the RGB speakers & pops don’t work without changing wiring. Does the SE come with one or both of these installed? I’m planning on ordering a SE in hopefully 2023 . I can see when comparing it to a RE it doesn’t have the topper or shaker, so i’m ordering those. But have many people added mirror blades to their machines & what is there by default? Last question (sorry am excited) has anyone changed the legs, lockdown bar & trim to black, or are owners happy with the silver? Ideally I would want a RE but clearly no more are being made. Either way I don’t mind the last two questions, just wanted to hear opinions, thanks

RGB speakers require a few wires being moved with the installation of the RGB kit. RGB kit doesn't include RGB lighting for pop bumpers.

SE doesn't come with RGB kit installed.

I have the LE. I upgraded to the XL display, comes with lighted speakers. I also have the Topper but have not installed it yet.

The lighted speakers by themselves only glow 1 color. If you want them to change colors with the game you have to install the board that comes with the Topper or the RGB light kit.

I believe the reference to Back Panel lighting would be the back box. There are flashers on the back panel on the playfield but those are wired into the game. So really not sure what it means.

Thought it was castle backlighting. Like led strip simulating lightning over pf? Anyone with a RE confirm this? I can’t open mine up to verify.

Quoted from underlord:

It’s an RGB strip installed above the back of the PF, onto the trim piece that the back of the PF glass goes into.

Thanks for clearing that up LTG. I did see the previous posts mentioning moving wires for the Rgb to work. I just was not sure if that was because people were upgrading from a CE or older model. Also when looking at the comparison table on https://www.chicago-gaming.com/coinop/medieval-madness the photos show the speaker panels matching to the playfield colours in both the SE & RE. So it kind of looked like it does. So as you explain I would need to fit the RGB myself. Is the XL screen pre installed on a SE or are all the upgrades just bundled with the SE for a self install?

Does any one know what goes in this hole? It has a t nut, but I have no idea what screws into it.

True. I can wait. Especially since it'll probably take me that long to save up for it.

Posting this here because the MM thread is pretty dead

Question/issue

Is the right ramp Gi supposed to be on all the time? It goes on when I make the shot a long with the flasher but doesn’t stay on otherwise. Also, the GI to the left of the Merlin hole isn’t working- are these related?

Thank you

#8717 60 days ago

These two gi not working, I guess the other two under the ramp only activate when you hit the ramp?

#8718 59 days ago

Did a PF swap and for the life of me cannot find where this single connector red/blue goes? On the right side Can anyone help me out? On the bottom right about where the ramp starts.

Thanks.

Just joined the club with an MMr LE 684/1000 with a 2016 build date. According to the previous owner, the code has never been updated. If I were to update the code do I use the same software updates as the newest remakes?

What only_pinball said. Follow directions on their site, it may be finicky but most people get it working.

The trolls have evidently been practicing their shot put. Nice catch, Dragon.

Nice catch! They make a little plastic that goes over the dragon for that rare occasion. I have an extra one if you’d like me to mail it to you. No charge.

It's hard to see with that picture angle but the plastic rests on a black spacer below it, just saying if he plans to install one.

On the waiting list for a MMR SE. While I wait 2 years (wishing time to speed up) I thought i’d collect some upgrades. So far managed to get a Topper, shaker motor, & missing middle plastic piece.

I can see in the instructions for the topper it says version 2 machines have the holes pre drilled. Does that mean all future machines will have this (I would love to not have to drill holes myself). Also on the circuit board I can see two fuses are missing, does anyone know what fuses it takes?

Have many people upgraded the trim/armour or added mirror blades?

The MMR made in 2019 and later already have the holes in the top of the backbox. I added powerblades to my machine. I love how they look!

Thanks, that’s good to know. I enjoy Diy but drilling holes into a 10k plus machine makes me nervous!

I just looked up your blades, they look awesome. I like the fact that they have their own light show & custom art. I think i’ll leave my hopefully future MMR SE factory to start with. Then might change a few bits to make it closer to a RE.

There’s two empty fuse holders, are yours like this pic?

[quoted image]

Yes,

I actually have two boards and both are the same. I ordered the topper, XL display and rgb light kit all at the same time and a board came with the RGB kit and the topper. Both had no fuses.

I watched the install video that pinball supernova put up and his board also has no fuses. So you are good to go.

Ok cool thanks for letting me know . I’ll watch the video too

Latest problem for the new guy in the club…

I seem to be having trouble with the damsel tower. The diverter seems to work properly. My problem is when I get the ball in the tower it is not being recognized. It just sits there. Even ball search doesn’t bring it out. It does work every now and again but for the most part it isn’t being recognized.

Thoughts?

Adjust the switch in the bottom of the tower.

Remove tower, check switch in Tests - Switch edge.

Likely needs adjusting.

#8741 56 days ago
Quoted from Pizzaman13:

My problem is when I get the ball in the tower it is not being recognized. It just sits there.

I fixed one where the tower had excess plastic inside that the ball hung up on. Trimmed the plastic with an xacto knife and that fixed it. It's been a while, but it seems like I could reach a finger in from the top and feel the ball. Got hung up before it even got to the switch. You could also feel the excess plastic 'ledge' once the ball was pushed through.

Had this exact same issue (and fix). Ball was not dropping all the way down.

Anyone know what these white tabs that hold the plastics are called and where to buy them?

I know by default cabs are set up as free play. But is it easy to enable coins? Is it just a case of clipping in a mech , plug in lead & enable coins in the menu?

#8747 55 days ago
Quoted from W25ARE:

Yes.

Quoted from W25ARE:

In Adjustments Menu - A.3 Pricing- take off free play and set price.

Thanks for the quick response LTG . That’s good to know, it’s plug & play. I was worried it would need wires spliced in etc. I’m based in the UK so need a £1 coin mech. Do you have any recommendations for one, or is it a case of order through my distributor?

#8749 55 days ago

Also on the waiting list. I already have one actually (with all upgrades to royal edition) but it is on route - want one brand new one also, this game is too good, need one at home!

#8750 55 days ago

Does the back glass have any flashing lights during gameplay? I keep hearing it’s only on the RE but the review on this site seems to say yes.
