Quoted from PWhiz:

How do you disable the knocker without disabling the shaker?

Remove one wire from knocker coil. Or remove it's plunger.

What is the general consensus on how the gold trim looks in person? I'm not sure how much I like it just from the photos. Would like to hear from people who have seen it or have it.

Thanks,
Darin

#2401 4 years ago

I changed last minute to gold, I'm very glad I did.

It's not gold. It doesn't match the wire forms. It's a dull colour like mustard.

#2402 4 years ago

I have it. It's classy IMO.

It's great! It's an LE. Black or Stainless is too normal.

Quoted from Rarehero:

It's a matter of personal opinion.
I prefer the black trim. Matches the black hinges.
Looks fantastic!
Still waiting for mine.

#2405 4 years ago

Too bad the hinges don't match.

I'm toying with selling my IJ and Avatar Pro to help fund a MMRLE in gold that I can get right now. I need to open up a spot for Hobbit eventually anyway. I had an original MM and traded it out immediately after the MMR news surfaced a couple years ago. It is a pin I wouldn't mind having back. Downside is getting rid of IJ and Avatar. Reason for choosing those 2 titles is that they get the least play in my current lineup.

Are you talking about IJ4 or IJ Williams. If it's IJ4 I agree, get rid of that game right now. If it's IJ Williams then............. say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

I hate the gold...it's dull. The black looks awesome, but I like the SS look best. It is all down to personal preference. The gold looks much like the pics.

651...says right on the back.

Rick?
PPS said:
Sorry but yet another small supplier who disappeared and left customers hanging ...
He was your MMr distro. Any problems there?

I thought he was referring to the Whitewater topper fiasco when he said that. I hope that has no bearing on the MMr purchases.

#2415 4 years ago

He was and I hope so too. Some clarification would be nice.

I never would have thought it would take well over two years to build 1000 of a remake game, especially if you told me Stern was doing the assembly.

#2417 4 years ago
Quoted from DCFAN:

Stern has only been involved about one year. And except for the move to the new building, the reason things are rolling.

Quoted from LTG:

LTG : )

Yes, I know. I am not blaming Stern. It is just very surprising that things have been held up so much. When we all heard Stern would be doing the assembly I think most figured they would build at least around 200 a month. Obviously there has been some poor project management on the part of the Chicago Gaming and/or PPS people.
It is a damn shame that people that ordered from certain distributors are somewhat worried that their money may have been lost/stolen and the communications or lack thereof has done little to ease that worry.

#2419 4 years ago

What number do you have?

#2420 4 years ago
Quoted from Pablito:

At this pace I think we see the Lions or possibly the Browns win the Superbowl before I see my damn MMR. Oh but wait, "Stern is going to knock out all of the LEs before the end of the year. And oh yeah, software update, and...and...and...color code. Right around the corner folks!"

Playoffs are starting tomorrow... superbowl around the corner... and I still don't have mine either.

#2421 4 years ago
Quoted from Mokthemagicman:

What number do you have?

581

#2422 4 years ago

Shit. At this rate, I must have number 1000! (I know they are not made sequentially)....

#2423 4 years ago

It's worth the wait. It really is.

#2424 4 years ago

Well I eventually got mine and like all others have said, it was definitely worth the wait. I couldn't be happier with this game. You will be so happy when you tear open that box. I hope you guys all get yours soon.

#2427 4 years ago

Just wondering how long it takes to get only 15 games (which has been the number of games ahead of me)to JJP customers? Or any domestic vendors customers? So far the answer is "too god damn long, that's how long" I've been hearing "soon" or "about two weeks" for the last 4 months at least. CGC really needs to get its shit together and get these games finished. Anyone have any update on what their excuse is this month?

They only have 3xx left to make? ish. Be up to a few months I'd assume to finish off the 1000 LE's.

#2429 4 years ago

I hope at the very least everyone that is angry about CGC's world-record supply chain mismanagement votes with their wallet and refuses to purchase the next title. I was excited for this series of remakes and had every intention of grabbing the next title, but not anymore. Won't buy it no matter what title it is nor what the cost. How could I patronize a company (CGC) that has comically mismanaged a project like this and then has the audacity to charge several hundred dollars for a color upgrade rather than throwing it in as a goodwill gesture for pre-order customers?

Rick has gotten a lot of the blame here and maybe he deserved that for "owning" the project when it was first announced. But none of this supply chain disaster is on him. He's purely a licensor. CGC is the one making the money here. If you're mad, show them with your dollars.

#2430 4 years ago

I won't be in on the next title unless there is at least a 5% rebate for every month they are past their projected delivery date. I doubt that will happen heck if that had been the case most preorder buyers would be getting free machines at this point hahahahaha

That would be phenomenal, if we use that rationale, we could all have free Hobbits and Wizard of Oz's too!

#2432 4 years ago

#673 and #676 just arrived in Huntsville, AL. One for me and one for a friend. This is my second one, the first is on location. My first one was gold, looked awesome! Got a black for the house, looks awesome! Will eventually get it unpacked sometime this week.

Has anyone from JJP gotten there black LE yet? Last time I checked, beginning of December there was like 55 ahead of me and it's still the same. My guess is JJP customers will be the last to get theirs

Though this doesn't help you out...I got my black trim MMr from JJP back in Oct.

I was told that I was of the first black MMr's from JJP

Hang in there...the pin is worth it.

I was told in the beginning of November that there were 15 ahead of me through JJP then again in December the same 15 ahead of me. Yesterday I got a message from a local guy that was told back in November/December he had 10 through JJP ahead of him(so I'm guessing I'm 5 behind him) he told me that JJP told him yesterday that his May ship out at the end of this week or the beginning of next week. Hopefully it does at least we will see some progress.

#2436 4 years ago

Wow. 676? Sounds like Stern is finally cranking them out!

#2437 4 years ago

I was told yesterday by Katie at JJP I was 25th on the list. Paid in full July 2014.

Those girls at JJP probably put up with a TON of shit. both from Jack and the customers. It'd be a horrible job telling people again and again about delays.

#2440 4 years ago

Soooo... my first MMR was #137 and had tons of minor issues out of the box. All easily fixed. Yay....... Its been on location and trouble free ever since. #2 came in and it was trouble free out of the box until I hit a damsel shot and the ball is getting stuck while its going down the damsel tower assembly. I'm sure its just an easy mechanical tweak. One thing of note is that I had no overspray on the bottom of the cabinet. I was so looking forward to that, I was robbed! But I did get a bitchin dirty handprint so that's cool. #1 was gold and its intended for location so gold makes it more "special" and people have been impressed by that. But I really think the black looks better for a home environment. But heck, all three colors look great.

Once people start spilling beer and soda over this thing, the handprint should become much less noticeable. So there's that...

No GoTs on location near me yet!

My GoT on location is killin it (relatively speaking) fantastic game for people that like the medieval/fantasy theme. I might say "f^&k it" and get a premium to go next to the MMR in the basement.

Does your got drain like a mofo? The three I've played are as bad as fish tales

#2444 4 years ago

The outlanes were horrible drains when set wide open then I closed them up and it was too easy so I moved them to the middle and its been nothing but customer satisfaction ever since.

#2445 4 years ago

I thought mine was a drain monster at first and I closed up the gap in the outlaws to the smallest.

But after a couple of days like that it was too easy.

Gone back to default and focused on ball control and accuracy. Finding it balanced now and think that the difficulty is just right.
Few more days and getting plenty of 50mill and top of 110mill.

You will get used to it

#2446 4 years ago

Mine came with them in the middle, that's what I am calling default,

#2447 4 years ago

Are you guys talking about GOT or MMR?
