Quoted from MMP:

Monster Bash has "something" to it that my kids 8 and 10 both love to play pinball suddenly. They'll now even play my other games while they wait for MB to free up

That's great to hear...my daughter hates pinball..the only game she liked was WH20, but I've had a MBLE on order for her and hope when she gets it she'll play it and not hate it!

You guys are lucky - my scores were wiped out; I wonder why …???

#5953 36 days ago
Quoted from Lermods:

Upgraded the code this morning, improvements are significant for sound and the shaker. Shaker now more active, including in the pops, and the game now sounds more like AFMr. It wiped out my custom logo unfortunately, but not my scores or other settings.

was the sound not that good initially? what sound enhancements did you notice? thx

#5954 36 days ago

I had an epic game last night after getting back from vacation with the kids and grandkids. MB seems to be the first game I play when I get back from a trip.

My previous best score was like 138,000,000. Last night it was over 557,000,000. I got to MOR for the first time, had 2 MB 's and 1 Mosh pit multi-balls.

I got my wife to come down and witness after I collected 4 of the instruments. I have game set up to earn eb based on scoring and I seemed to pick up more eb's from the scoop. She said how does your brain work from all that action.

What a great game. Cheers

Quoted from 3pinballs:

was the sound not that good initially? what sound enhancements did you notice? thx

its a lot crisper(and louder) for the treble and the bass feels stronger, even with the external sub I have hooked up. If you had AFMr, you would notice the difference between MBr and AFMr. AFMr has some of the best sound from a stock set up I've ever heard, and now MBr has that same sound. I wish they could do it for MMR, which has pretty bad sound.

Ah crap - was gonna ask about that. Will have to dig out the instructions on how to replace the logo.

Hi all

I have just received my MBRLE in the UK I know there are lots of posts on how to fix the drac SDTM and also the scoop SDTM is there a definitive fix for both these issues? As I have seen several diff opinions

Any help would be welcome so I can tweak my new machine.

Oh BTW it also has the split decals which I find strange as CGC supposedly changed their process and the UK games were just recently manufactured!

Start with the new update available on their website.

Enjoy your new machine!!!

Anyone knows the number of LE‘s produced so far? Still waiting for my game and CGC doesn’t answer my emails.

Been away for a few years and now I’m happy to say I own a pinball again. MBLE no. 1028 is in the house

Did the update maybe add that lightning strike sound effect during Frank multi when you activate double or triple? Or did I just not notice it before. And to save another post, is it normal for the ball to fly a bit when you whack Frank during Multiball? I have it on a pretty big slope due to the slow speed of this machine. Mine is about 7.6

That lightning strike sound effect has always been there, and others have noted some air balls after hitting Frank as well. I only get the air balls occasionally.

#5964 33 days ago

I'm getting my MBR ready to route and have installed a bill acceptor (APEX series 7000), which has worked on several recent Stern games. I have put together the connectors properly and tried the LEFT and FOURTH options in the Dollar Bill Slot pricing adjustment, but I get no lights and no action from the acceptor. I see the manual recommends an MEI AE2654U5E acceptor, but I don't have one.

Any advice on whether I can get the APEX series 7000 acceptor to work in MBR, or does anyone see something that I'm missing?

I am getting the following error when trying to unzip the 1.03 update using WinRAR...

! C:\Users\Downloads\MonsterBash103Installer.7z: Unknown method in MonsterBash103Installer.img

I've tried downloading the file multiple times. Any ideas?

Quoted from JFink8222:

Anyone else getting their balls stuck here?? (I’m sure plenty of comments will roll in on that one). I have my game set at 7.3 pitch. I feel like the “V” was cut too big. Can’t squeeze it back. Gonna open a ticket I think Right ramp

FYI - came across this while looking for a few upgrades....

Hi all did anyone get any response from CGC for the decal splits? Just received mine 1089 LE and it has the split decal just wondering if its worth raising a ticket?

Mine gets stuck also. What is different about the Mantis ramp? Hard to tell from the pictures.

Put in the ticket.
I had a scratch on my decals. they sent me a new set, twice. Poorly packaged and damaged in the mail.

Anybody have a full armor kit for a MBR. The legs siderails and lockdown bar ? In Black

#5972 31 days ago

Installed the new software update.

The knocker is much better. It’s still not the same as a real knocker, but for me it is close enough.

I’m very happy with the ability to increase the shaker length and strength. I simply went with longer and left the strength alone. It is a huge improvement over the original settings.

After the update, I did need to reinstall my custom logo and reduce my flipper strength again, but those appear to be the only settings that did not carry forward.

Thanks for the update CGC.

Change to “Shaky”, much better

The webpage explains that the “V” is not as wide as the standard ramp.

Not for us. All our high scores stayed in our machine.

You must be stoked to have a pin back in the house Andrew. I still have you’re old Hulk LE I bought off Dave. It’s now pimped!
I’ve been considering one of these for a while. Hope you like it.

I thought it would be easy but heaps of fun...but turns out it's bloody hard and heaps of fun. my average game time overall is like 3 minutes which is absurd and I thought I was a good player. Glad you're enjoying Hulk

Quoted from Flynnyfalcon:

Yep, changed to shaky also and it's a really noticeable improvement. When the ball gets in the pop bumpers it goes berzerk

#5981 31 days ago

Still loving my MBLE! Gets the most play in the house! This going to be a permanent fixture for sure!

Thanks. Do you think it is worth $65?

#5983 31 days ago
Quoted from JOESCHALL:

Thanks for the clear reply, gmagno. I believe I have the solution to your problem. See video below. As noted, turn the power off before bending the switch, and do so very carefully. If this doesn't work or you have further questions, just let me know.

I opened her up and ran the test again. Same screen, switch broken, motor running. I said what the heck and grabbed/pushed on the part that spins, freed it from the up switch. It hit the down switch and stopped again, no movement. HMMM, I kept doing this 3 more times and it finally cycled up and down several times. Weirdest thing, couldn't see anything obvious that would keep it from turning. Closed her up and played fine last night. Thanks again for all the help and advice. Ordering the knocker today.

I am in the club with my first NIB, MBLE 1144! It is definitely a visually stunning game to play and was worth the wait. However does anyone know what is wrong with my translite? It has several small areas that have the appearance of water or oil. It is clearly visible when powered off and is undetectable when on. Is this a problem? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Glad to hear it was helpful to look at and test that area--even if the "fix" that happened remains a mystery, you're looking in the right place. Play on, and if it ain't broke again, don't fix it. Good luck, and thanks for reporting back.

Quoted from Giebzilla:

Looks like you have some air trapped or separation via moisture in between your translite and the glass.

Thanks again Joe, couldn't have done it without you.

#5988 30 days ago
Quoted from Giebzilla:

No. Easy fix. Remove the backglass assembly. Remove the translite. Clean the glass and dry it. Dry the translite. It could be moisture or static cling. If it remains. Dust the back glass with talcum powder or baby powder and blow it off. Then reassemble. That will fix it.

A small gamble on a $8500 machine imo.

I have the card ready to perform the update. Any insight on the random loss of high scores? There must be a logical reason. Waiting on feedback before potentially wiping my scores.

Can’t help you on the “potential” side, but at worst you lose them, but gain a better pin.

#5992 29 days ago

Got around to doing a few cosmetic upgrades.
Glow rubbers
Blue flipper bats
Two spots to light up the dark middle
Ice blue strip in the drain
2 cliffys for switches under drops

Still gotta get mirror blades, but then it will be done

When I did my first update on M.B. one of the steps asked if I wanted to delete scores. Just entered NO, and all previous scores remained. I would hope this second update does the same. I personally haven't done mine yet but plan to.

#5994 29 days ago

I get my MBSE sunday

#5996 29 days ago

I'm in the club! Just got my MBr SE last night. Looking forward to getting some quality time in on it this weekend.

I contacted CGC and will post the reply so we are all informed. Pic of board behind translite for future reference.

I was successful and didn't lose scores. Maybe versions prior to 1.0.2 need to be updated to 1.0.2 and then updated again to 1.0.3. This is the only theory that makes sense.
