Will Sterns HD glass fit this machine?

Yup! It’s a standard glass and will fit perfectly.

Of course. Standard size.

Got my MMr today and I am very happy with the build quality of this game. I’ve had 2 original MM before and this one looks and plays as good if not better than both of them. I had a fully restored McCune one too... The fit and finish is beautiful and the gameplay is solid and smooth. I see no issues after 5 quick games except for the need for the color chip.
I am looking for a way to disable the knocker, if anyone has any tricks.

You can disconnect the cable going to it. It's a 2 pin molex.20180517_191454 (resized).jpg

Thanks, I’ll look and see where that goes, was hoping a software add in was in the game but that’s cool.

You can either pull the plug as suggested earlier, or do as I did and mount a switch on the back to turn it off at night....

Of course that means drilling a hole in the back though.....

Trying to decide if I want to buy a MMR or wait and find an original one have any of you guys owned both?If so which one did you sell or keep? Any thoughts. I am a big fan of the way 90's Bally/Williams stuff plays.

#3408 1 year ago

They play the same. MMR plays new.

I have both, I like the MMr better. Mostly because its new and plays like a new game.

#3410 1 year ago

Good info above on the MMR. I'd also recommend new but I like new. New is new and it makes a big difference compared to wear and tear in the now 20 year old original games. The originals also pre-date HUO for the most part. YMMV. Any MM that needs replacement parts will essentially be using MMR parts for cabinets, pfs's, art, mechs, etc; it's the same game in so may ways. And as many have noted, it plays the same. There's an MMR being routed and posted here with 14k plays now which is showing excellent longevity results. That amount of plays is not normal in HUO, even with long term ownership. It would be equivalent to playing the game twice a day every day for 20 years straight. MMR is a great game.

#3411 1 year ago

I've had both and to me there is nothing as fun in pinball as opening a brand new game in the box. The whole experience is fun for me and my family, the ordering, the shipment, the delivery, and then the setup and 1st time firing it up.
That being said the original is why this game was remade first, it's a great game, I just wanted a nib experience this time. It's a beautiful game and well done. Whatever you decide you will be happy.

#3412 1 year ago

I just got around to installing my tilt topper MMR topper. Can someone point me out to some directions, I think I misplaced some parts, it just has one long wire, and I do not know where to connect it
Thanks

I’ve had both and as others have said, MMR feels like MM but new. That said they don’t play quite the same, my MMR is a ramp monster and you can slay dragons with impunity but the castle is lethal... where on my MM you needed to be dead accurate to make the damsel ramp without the ball returning to sender on you, but you could predictably hunt castles all day. I don’t blame that on it being a remake, but more it being newer and having snappier flippers. One cool thing I haven’t messed with is the flipper power adjustments which I just left on default.

#3414 1 year ago

I too have owned a MMr & MM. My MM is long gone (sold back around 2000) but I can assure anyone-MMr is the SAME game out of the box as MM.
That said, I prefer MMr since I don't have to worry about 20 y/o mechanics & electronics failing on me.

Yea I turned mine down a tad also as the flippers on default make it too easy to make shots. The adjustments really make this game easy to dial in to your specific taste. I have a 6yr old and an 8yr old and they can both rock this game so its really friendly to new pinballers. I added a shaker motor and pinstadium lights w/ UV and the game is insane! I still haven't got to battle the kingdom mode yet never the less beat it, super close tonight actually, so the longevity is there also!

#3418 1 year ago

What’s your flipper settings for kids ? I have some friends kids that need ball control and I’m not sure what would benefit them

Hey Dan! Maybe you can recommend a speaker upgrade? I hear MMr could use it...

#3424 1 year ago
Quoted from Ray_Ayala:

There is a post with how to do it, I’ll see if I can find it for you, but I used some Pyle 5.25 speakers that look almost like the ones CGC put in AFMR so it has a nice factory look, despite the fact that they’re bright yellow. I also put in a matching 6.5 inch cab speaker that I like so much I’ve dropped it in 2 other pins since.

Picked up my new MMr at the shipper’s platform Friday morning instead of waiting until Tuesday. It’s awesome. The flippers need some adjusting but the one minor problem that stands out is the ball launch to start a game. When the game tries to load the Ball from the trough, it oftentimes settles askew of the plunger resulting in a fail launch attempt. One time, the ball fell into the cabinet, so I know something must be off. Has anybody ever experienced this? I’ll take a pic of it later if that helps. It’s as if a guide is missing or something. Other than that, it’s fantastic.

#3428 1 year ago

After comparing it to my other machines, it definitely appears that the ball guide is missing. I made my own which seems to be working now, but I would like to obtain the original part. Here’s some before and after pics:

Hey guys my MMR LE makes a weird vibrating noise when I launch the ball or sometimes during the game. Does anyone know where I should start looking, and have suggestions for a fix? I hope someone else has experienced this too. Sounds like coming from the front of the machine near the launcher, not sure if its the glass itself or not.

I.. I have to ask.
Did you have your shaker turned on?

I dont think its related to shaker.. because this comes and goes. and only happen when launching the ball. I thought I had it fixed by pressing on the coin door.. but nope.

Anti rattle tape. Pinball Wizard has it and Pinball Pro has a different one. I used the Pinball Wizard one and after initially thinking it did not help I think it does make a definite difference. $25 with shipping.

How funny! My homemade guide looks cleaner! Haha. At least CGC will know I didn’t make this up. It’s a long weekend, so I don’t expect to hear from them until Tuesday. The game is playable so I’m not worried. I had to cut the opening up a little wider and now it works 100%. This game is so fun. Quite a bit tougher than the Pinball Arcade simulator. You can have a great game one time and then just an absolutely horrible one the next.

Yeah, MM is just amazing. Back in the day I thought it was a cool game but kind of overrated. It wasn’t until I learned how it all worked that I realized how genius it was. And of course it’s hard to deny the art, theme, sound and just how fun bashing trolls and blowing up castles is.

Good electrical tape along the edges of the glass is a good fix. Properly applied you don't see it.

They sell anti rattle tape. It's pricey but has slightly better adhesive on it maybe.

I found the same thing. Never play as consistently on my real game as I do on the simulator.

#3444 1 year ago

The biggest thing with the computer game is when you do a nudge, it is a perfectly predictable movement that you are going to get, and it is the same each and every time.... That obviously is not the case with the real game.....

My high, on the computer game, was about 990,000,000......

Real game, my high is a little over 812,000,000....

The computer game was great for learning the rules of the game.....

It's basically what led me to get the real game....

I had the same issue and it turned out the glass was not pushed all the way in. Check that before trying the anti rattle tape
