Quoted from spazzman90:

Anyone try swapping the display from an AFMr into a MMr yet? Just wondering if the electronics have what it takes to drive that puppy and have it look proper.

According to Doug it is NOT plug and play. The CPU and video boards changed from MMr to AFMr. A bigger video for MMr would require significant re-engineering.....

#2352 2 years ago

Mine shipped... should have in a few days.

#2353 2 years ago

Just got mine. Previous owner had the rails and lockbar chromed. It’s stunning!

You can see the difference, I LOVE THE BIG DISPLAY on my AFMR le!

No NIB for me... but I had a deal come through for a black LE with the color upgrade from a local pin bro. Sad I won't be getting the NIB but stoked about the LE-news of it all!

#2356 2 years ago

What's the serviceability of the remake? I've been reading a lot about it and i understand that a lot of people have been using them no problems but im worried about what happens when the leds and the boards blow and i know people will say "but the leds compensate and whatnot" but when the boards go what happens then. I'm asking cause im planning on buying an MM and i know i can or get the original fixed but im not sure about the remake

#2357 2 years ago

As more people buy remakes, there will be folks who learn to work on the boards. And as they continue to be made, parts are available.

Got my MMr today! I can now officially be in the club! Just curious- there wasn't really a "goodie bag" in it just an envelope with balls and the tilt bob (and maybe one small plastic). Is that normal for CGC?

#2360 2 years ago
Quoted from brainmegaphone:

Yes.

Small plastic is your spacer to adjust flipper height.

#2361 2 years ago

Still waiting on my MMR. The York show slowed mine down.

Yup. And backbox key is hanging inside the coin door.

Thanks! So far only minor issue appears to be the ball getting stick in moat once in awhile until ball search kicks it out. I'm guessing the switch just needs to be tweaked up. Plan to tackle that tonight.

Guss: I hope yours comes soon.

Have had mine for 8 months already, was a Stern factory built one. Great game. I set the catapult strength and flipper strength to +1, the rest are factory settings. You want to be able to clear 2 balls in the catapault and make that damsel tower shot.

I had this same issue, and discussed it earlier here. You're correct from what I remember. Check my old posts for the specific details; I did a simple adjustment to the moat VUK and optos, and it worked. It has never ever been an issue since.

Cheers.

That'd be the popper setting.

Thanks, Like a kid again waiting for xmass

#2368 2 years ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

Is it an opto or switch? I put it in switch test and saw that it only sees the ball sometimes which makes sense. So is it an opto sensing the ball or a pressure switch (I can't feel any switch with my fingers).

Going to follow up on dzoomer's previous post as he had this issue too...

#2369 2 years ago

Mine in .... Just waiting for a day it can be delivered. Most likely about three weeks

#2370 2 years ago

One... day... mooooooore!!

I believe it's a solenoid like the merlin hole has. the ball gravity feeds into it as it is in the moat but sits in a pocket. Just roll a ball into it to see what happens. I was mentioning that there's a popper strength setting in the CGC menu.

Quoted from KozMckPinball:

I've removed the whole bracket and moat, to put the mantis protector in and there's no rollover or opto. Just roll a ball into it to see what happens. I was mentioning that there's a popper strength setting in the CGC menu.

When I did switch test it sometimes triggers a switch when a ball goes into that vuk. It sometimes does not. I can't see a switch though (like on TSPP for example there is a little Y shaped switch in the VUK). So you think I can adjust sensitivity somehow and it will fix it?

I reseated a bunch of connectors and it did nothing.

What is the metal thing on the bottom of the moat? Is that also an opto?

#2374 2 years ago

I have played probably 300 plays on my MMR LE, and I have yet to see this "video mode". Well, Ill keep going.

Mo

I always wondered about that mode. Merlin's list references it but I've never been awarded it. I do know there are other ways to earn it but you would think if Merlin has it on his list you'd get it randomly.

Merlin has it on his list because the only way to cash it in is through Merlin but you need to earn it first by spelling FIRE at least 5 times depending on your settings. If you have not earned it, you won't be awarded it.

Mo

I've had it a few times, and it always seems to happen just before, or just after BFTK. Unless you're a superstar, it does take a while to see it. At one point I was convinced I'd never get to it. Keep going

#2378 2 years ago

Owned the game for 2 years and never seen it!

Bracket holding a micro mini switch. No opto on the moat.

#2380 2 years ago

You can adjust in settings how many times you need to spell F-I-R-E to activate video mode, bring it down by a few and it should be doable. The factory setting is quite hard to reach, and remember you have a bomb to use

#2381 2 years ago

I get video mode about every third game, once you can do multiple ramps and change the inlanes then spelling fire 5 times is not really that difficult. Getting the extra ball in video mode is easy, I'm disappointed on the odd occasion that I don't get it.
I have only ever got Cow Video mode a couple of times, same goes for Barnyard multiball, they are much harder due to requiring multiple catapult shots and correct picks.

My strategy (on default settings ) is to play to get as many extra balls as possible as quickly as possible then go for whatever else has not been completed along the way.

I have a busted troll head. I bought my MMR Standard in Jan 2017. Anyone know if this is a warranteed item? I am ordering it from Planetary Pinball.

Yuuup! Ordered it last nite, and an SD card so I can do the updates too.

Its been a while since I did mine but I believe the Color upgrade kit comes with a SD card already loaded with the new software?

I think you're right, though my memory is pretty shitty.

Thanks for the heads up. Turns out I already had a 64GB Ultra SD so I did the update to 2.02 this morning, and tried to cancel the 8GB one I ordered just as Scamazon told me it shipped.

#2392 2 years ago

Just wondering if anybody else has any issues my buddy is having with Mmr Le . All lower coils not firing , flippers , ball trough , ball eject everything tied to F1 fuse . Fuse looks fine on inspection , green light is on board . Have not tested with multi meter yet . Just thought if some one else has ran into similar problem might save trouble shooting . Thanks

Quoted from Lord_of_the_pins:

Check if the metal flap on the coin door is depressing the high power interlock and memory protect switch in far enough. You may have to bend the flap or the bracket the switch is mounted to so they close better.

Easy way to check is pull out the knob on the top one, high power interlock, leave coin door open, and play a game.

LTG : )

#2394 2 years ago

Check your interlock switch. Coin door may not be pushing it closed enough to provide power. Just had this issue on my afmr.

You can push in the switch and then go into test mode and see if they will fire.

Edit: looks like ltg responded a few seconds apart. Great minds think alike

Check wires under the playfield aren't in the way of the moat switch. I had this issue with mine out of the box. It's a simple quick fix.
It wasn't kicking out 100% of the time.

#2396 2 years ago

Thanks for the tips guys . Did that happen to you guys when coin door was closed just stop working ??

#2397 2 years ago

No. I'm a PPS/CGC remake tech support guy and have seen a few of these.

#2398 2 years ago
Quoted from SuperPinball:

I can honestly say that this is an amazing pin and well worth the price and wait. I love this pin so much that I will be getting all of Chicago gaming/PPS games in the future. When guests come who are non pinheads ,so no bias based on ratings, they naturally gravitate to the MMR. I played an old MM a couple of months ago and almost cancelled my order. I'm so glad I didn't. Its my favorite pin and have absolutely no regrets at all with it.

Ciao! Just put in my order, Stainless, guy selling is putting in color dmd along with the protector kit and button protectors (clear) Obvious advantage to buying from a dealer who is also a parts distributor. This is the second batch made hence totally under Chicago Gamings roof. Got to play an Attack from Mars at the show room, quality really puts Stern to shame, like you I will stick with the remakes hope Monsterbash is next!!

Thank you for starting the Forum
