Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Installed PDI glass , man what a difference.. the colors pop more and it really does feel like there isn't a piece of glass in between.

I did the same. The difference between standard and anti reflective glass is massive.

#5852 77 days ago

Question on this PDI glass--can it be cleaned just with Windex? I ask because I'm considering some for my MBR. I'll be routing my machine (don't shoot me!) and they'll be cleaning the glass occasionally, so I just want to be sure it doesn't require the special cleaner sold by PDI.

#5853 77 days ago
Quoted from JOESCHALL:

I wouldn't. Windex has ammonia in it. There is a Windex without ammonia in it. Not sure if it is safe.

I use this on invisiglass. Spray on a lint free cloth and then wipe the glass with the cloth.

Thanks, Lloyd. You're the best. Just found Joey's contact information at PDI so I'm writing him to be sure.

DO NOT use WINDEx!! Use the stuff LTG suggested. You can get it at Home Depot. Do not use windex.

I think they recommend Isopropyl.

#5858 77 days ago

Thanks to all for your replies. I heard back from Joey at PDI and he replied similarly. I'm going to speak to the pizza shop owner where MBR will be routed and see what they currently use (they have glass table tops as well), and if they will agree to an ammonia-free option then I'll get the PDI glass. Again, thanks!

I spoke with CGC and they determined that the plasma disk is bad so they are sending a new one.

As long as it doesn't contain ammonia. Ammonia will remove the special coating on the glass that makes it non glare.

Installed the Lermod trough light on my MBR LE last night. Easy to do and wow, what a huge improvement. The RGB version changes colors to match the changing colors on the play field.

Before and after photos:

#5862 76 days ago
Quoted from CUJO:

Thanks will inspect it tonight. When I looked down into the up trough it looked like another ball was moving into place before the first ball made it up.

Still having issues with the ball making it into the shooter lane, even on MIN setting.
Can someone else please check their MBLe and see if they too have a piece of rubber on the topside edge of the trough where ball come out of?
I'm thinking the ball is hitting this due to improper placement and falling back down.

Yes there should be a rubber piece like this:

Close but no cigar. It's hitting the metal flap that should divert it to the shooter lane. ( if changing power higher or lower doesn't help. )

For WOZ, yet this will help - http://www.pinplay.com/5/adjusting_the_ball_trough_on_woz.html

Yes, this worked for me on my Hobbit, which has a pretty similar trough

New to the club, an SE & very satisfied with the game - CGC continues to get better with each release.

Right now I'm totally pissed at myself, I was making some tweaks to things
Left Bride ramp wasn't flowing as well as I liked - Bent the right/outer wireform to be more level coming into the first turn and then bent the metal walls inward to pinch in closer to the wireform. It hasn't helped 100%, but much better - I suspect if I took off the Frank ramp I could really get at it to help in that first turn.

I also decided to bend out the right orbit guide a tad to help with the ball hitting the upper right sling, and then I totally messed up by doing the same to the lower guide under the coffin. The lower part was much closer to the playfield than I thought, and while the upper part of it bent out no problem, the lower part dug in a bit and chipped out a tiny piece of the CC/Paint. It didn't come up all the way so I was able to mylar it back down but it really bums me out. I could probably look to seal it with some clear down the line.

I drew an outline around it for a better look. The crazy part is I have done this on plenty of games and never had a problem.

So yeah don't be an idiot like me.

Bummer! I know how ya feel.. it doesn’t look that bad though.

#5870 75 days ago

I have 2 questions one for dealers and one for everyone. The first question is are there still a lot of people who ordered thier LE game months ago and still haven't received it and for my dealer question is LE stock still available and is there still a huge wait/delay on stock if available. Would it be better to wait till late September/October to attempt at trying to buy one?

I see plenty of SE and CE available, Zach at FlipnOut has them in stock. I haven't seen as many LE avail but again Zach has 1 listed. Good luck!

Finally got to play a Classic edition remake on location! What a beautiful game! Would love to see a SE! or LE

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

You didn't take that out of your game just for me , did ya??? LOL

Thanks! Still frustrating me from time to time getting balls up in the shooter lane. Gonna open a ticket with CGC and see what they say.

I know there are some suggestions on here but since it is a game within warranty, I'm gonna check in with them first.

#5874 75 days ago
Quoted from CUJO:

Great. I'll be glad to assist you. I'm them.

Page 1-10 in the manual explains how to get into the CGC menu. First try making the Pop Trough Strength stronger or weaker.

If the ball comes up and hits the deflector and goes back down instead of to the shooter lane. Then this. For WOZ but same ball trough except WOZ has a flap that moves to prevent the balls from coming out the top of the ball trough when you lift the playfield up. Remakes don't have this flap.

I received my LE in 3 days from Game Room Guys, so there are dealers out there who have them in stock.

#5876 75 days ago

I tried asking in the mod thread, but might as well ask here before breaking out the multimeter/schematics.

I want to add some spotlights to the game, does anyone have a good location to tap 5v? the GI should* be the natural spot but the connectors are obviously not normal.

The spotlight for Frank might be one location but it's not always on - the other two spots I was thinking of would be the GI under the slings or the inserts showing the creators/team of the game at the bottom L/R.

#5877 75 days ago
Quoted from gjm7777:

You can tap 5V and 12V right at the power supply.

#5878 75 days ago
Quoted from Only_Pinball:

Thanks, that is an idea - but i'd probably have some wires hanging then (especially when raising the playfield) to worry about.

Quoted from gjm7777:

Yeah. I thought about that after I posted. Problem is pulling off the PCB under PF would almost certainly void your warranty on that board. I think I'd run the wires to the back of the cabinet and then up to PF if it was me just to be safe.

Honestly, I think your idea is really good, better to be safe - I'll just need to get a longer spool of wire and I can tuck it along the existing looms.

#5881 75 days ago

Curious: Are there people who have ordered LEs that are still waiting for them?

#5882 75 days ago

I'll have to dig around to see if I can find out about this power supply, short of a multimeter, the terminals aren't labeled. And I dont see 5v in the ac wiring schematic. I wonder if this game is all 12v?

there is an open header under the playfield that supplies 6v. you can use that. check the manual for the wiring diagram, which shows it.

#5884 75 days ago

I also found these. I'm assuming in the case of adding a spotlight, one lead to 5v, one to a color, (or would it be ground) I'm just a bit nervous as I dont want to blow a board or fuse.
With a regular WPC pin the lamp socket terminals don't matter, and my logic would be adding one to 5v, one to color would basically emulate that.

[quoted image]

if you did it this way, the spotlight would only come on when that color was active. like I said, the easiest way is to use the open header. if you want I can make up a connector so you can connect your spotlights. contact me.

Oh cool. I did create a ticket just before I went back on Pinside and saw your response. LOL
I have tried changing the coil strength for the up kicker from MIN to +1 and it did not help.
When it hits the top of the guide there is a pretty load clack so I think it misses the rubber top.
I'll see if I can video it and post the action so you can see it by tonight.
Thanks LLoyd.

First post - first pin in years - LE #449 December build.

A little late to the party but I made it. Love this pin even with the small issues.

My early machine has all the little bugs that are addressed in this thread. A huge thanks to the big-brains that solved the scoop kick-out and the left ramp issues. I’m away from my machine for a bit but can’t wait to fix these.

Has anyone experienced the ball hopping out of the right ramp where the ramps come together? I’m thinking a small plastic bit covering the transition will fix that - anyone with another solution?

TIA

Hi Lloyd,

I heard from Arturo from CGC a few days back.

He sent me a pic of MB with apron removed and instructions identical to your WOZ pic, showing where to bend out the metal flange a tad.

I performed the bend yesterday and played (2) 3 ball games with my sweetheart last nite. She got Monsters Of Rock multiball (again!) and got Hiscore #3 (182 Million).

No issues with the ball going in the shooter lane at all during the games and multiball feed.

Thanks!

My original used to do this - see if you have any leeway to adjust the right ramp. It needs to be aligned pretty perfectly in order to slow the ball down when it comes around that corner

The plasma disk is an awesome toy in the new MBLE remakes for sure.
I was watching it for a while and was wondering if the patterns it generates are totally random or are they repeating? Hard to tell with the naked eye.

Random. It's an analog device. Not a program. I have a 9" inch one in my home made juke box. Used to be able to get them off ebay. It's quite impressive for sure!

Standard glass

#5898 70 days ago
Quoted from psexton:

Standard glass

Honestly for LE and premium prices HD glass should just be included.. but just my two cents.

Quoted from gmagno:

All those errors are related to the “Frank Table” error. Happens when the tab on frank table comes out of the guide and the table can’t go back to Frank laying down. Cascades to the ramp switch not being able to move and the targets not being able to raise and lower. Your Frank table is stuck in the raised (Frank standing up) position and will not go back until the tab is back in the slot.

Definitely needs a mod on the tab to keep it from popping out - it’s too short and comes out of the slot easily.
