Is this the area your talking about? Where did you grind it down?

Quoted from Lounge:

Check to see if the ball is hitting the wire-form that’s screwed into the playfield In the turn that feeds that ramp. On mine the wire-form was hitting the ball and taking all the momentum off the ball. I ended up taking a dremel tool to it and grinding it down.

I Had the same ratio. I everso lifted the back legs with Pinball leveler coasters. Hasn’t stopped up the wire form again...

#7003 1 year ago

Yes.

Remove the glass and run the ball over this spot with your hands and see if it catches/hits. If it does, you need to remove the wire-form and sand or grind it down.

Hi everyone - My name is Brian Allen, I'm the artist of the Monster Bash alternate artwork attached here. My artwork is officially licensed from Williams.
THIS TOPPER IS BEING MADE AND DISPLAYED WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.

Xtreme Custom Gaming (Ultra Custom Cabs Arcade) is STILL using my Monster Bash alternate artwork WITHOUT my permission to make a Topper.

Please understand, I am not asking you to attack his person or business.
I just wanted to make it loud and clear:
THIS PRODUCT TOPPER IS NOT AUTHORIZED BY ME, AND I AM NOT INVOLVED IN ANY WAY. It is an unlicensed product.

They claim that they are no longer selling it. However, they have been untruthful about this before.

When originally confronted, he told me he never intended on selling it. This is untrue because, in his first promotional video, he clearly said “This will be available on our website for $325”. I have the recording of this video.

He told me he would remove the video and not sell the product, and I agreed to remove my original Facebook posts about the theft.

Today, he posted a new video using the piece as a promotion. This is unauthorized use.

I’ve asked him to destroy it, and he has chosen not to.

If you choose to try to buy this from him, please let me know first. I can most likely get you one directly from the artist.

Dude, that’s F’d up. You should have an attorney send him a letter telling him to stop. Get an attorney or see if one on pinside is willing to assist you.

Oh and I have seen your artwork before and it is very nice work!

If I remember correctly, the back glass was being sold last year right here on pinside.

You are exactly correct!!! I really didnt think that was it, but grinded the wire form down and boom the ball has never been stopped since! Thank you for the help Lounge!

No idea if there's one.
I'll probably end up rerunning the update.
Where is that rom located?

#7013 1 year ago

monster_bash_remake_GI_location.png

see the red circle around the big rom. just careful make sure its fully seated, and yes rerun the upgrade also.

#7014 1 year ago

So, rom reseated, update redone: exact same stuff.
I guess I have to reach out to CGC support ?

#7015 1 year ago

Frankenstein Multiball hits not registering. I don't know about you guys but I have tried adjusting that Frankenstein switch so many times to be more sensitive with no luck. The switch actuator is always too far away from the metal back of Frankenstein. So I just added this 3/8-in thick gasket material that I had from Home Depot, self stick stuff for windows and screens, and now every hit registers so I no longer feel like I am getting robbed. Not sure if there was another way but it works

#7016 1 year ago

Wow, great fix idea. I had the same problem with the Frank switch. I ended up removing and completely re-bending the switch wire and it has been much better. Seems like your idea would have been much easier.

Does Frank still lie down correctly when he is not standing?

Yeah he still sits the same. This gasket I used just took care of the clearance issue but you could probably use foam, tape, anything that while he is upright that it is just touching the switch actuator. Any straight shots are now registering. Only problem now is my girlfriend has won the last few games, I can’t hit the dam thing now LOL

#7020 1 year ago

I kind of like that you need a solid strong hit down the middle to activate frank, having the switch register with any old hit would be lame. I always assumed it was intentionally not easy?

#7021 1 year ago

Just bought a used CE locally. Been waiting for one to pop up. Already blew the money I saved on the color chip. Great pin!

Has anyone installed the Flyland alternate translite yet?

A decal. Looks good in person. Another collector thought it was an original MB. It was like that when I bought it, so I can't tell you where it came from. Sorry

Quoted from nicoy3k:

Well, on mine, it didn't really work at all. If you manually pushed frank's torso back it would register, but no amount of pressure on his feet would trigger the switch. It now takes a decent hit to register. A solid shot from the flippers will work, but a bounce off of something else will not.

...lost Backbox key. I need a little star keyed Screwdriver bit. To remove the 2 wood screws. To replace the key tumbler. Any idea what type/size that is?....also have what appears to be moisture between the Translite and translate plastic panel??...

T 20 torx security bit. Many bit sets and driver sets have it. Available Home Depot, Amazon, Autozone, etc. etc.

Might not be moisture, could be static cling. Either way remove light tub/backglass/translite. Slide off plastic channels. Remove backglass and clean and dry. Carefully wipe down translite with microfiber cloth. Reassemble. If problem returns, repeat process. Before you reassemble lightly dust the glass with baby powder or talcum powder, blow it all off. Reassemble. That should cure it if it's a shiny translite.

I was playing today and ended up getting MoR multiball. I noticed That during the multiball some of the monster inserts (lights) on the playfield would flash. I got 5 of the 6 to flash but couldn’t get them all.

Anyone have any idea why they flash or what makes the monsters flash during the multiball??

#7031 1 year ago

interested in getting a Monster Bash classic edition. Out of curiosity if you get the upgraded color display chip, can you switch between the color and the orange display in the settings, or would you have to take the chip out every time you wanted to switch from color to orange?

#7032 1 year ago

Ball getting stuck in wire ramp issue.

Anyone else have an issue of the ball getting stuck, sort of wedged, into the right 'Ball and Chain" wire ramp? MB-R-ball stuck (resized).jpg

Happens frequent enough to be annoying and usually gets freed upon machine doing a ball search shaking/moving however does not free with tapping or shaking machine manually even to point of tilting.

Picture with circle is included to show ball stuck in area of concern.

Not sure how to fix this??

Thanks in advance for any tips or advice and if others having this issue.

Quoted from nicoy3k:

It doesn’t register with “any old hit”. It does have to be center shot and can’t be a weak flip or bounce off something else. On this site people addressed it with adjusting the switch actuator but I had no luck with that or my issue was just different. Although I had another issue come up, which was the right ramp entry switch error, I think it was SW 71. Anyway Found out to adjust that switch you have to loosen the mounting screws and you could slide it up and down, which was about 1/4” play. After doing that I might try loosing the Frank table switch and see if it has the same adjustment , if it does then I will just remove the gasket because that was about what I needed to make it even possible to activate the switch.

I had the same issue. This is what Chicago gaming sent me:remove the two nuts, washers and plastic art from the right wireform. Gently lift up evenly on both ends of the wireform, to create space between to the wire frames. This you should fix the balls from getting stuck again (picture attached).

Seem to work for ball getting stuck but I am still waiting for them to send me the right ramp and wire form. One of my bolts securing the right ramp are broke, and my wire form seems to be clunky, clean shots going around the bend are binding the ball up. Of course COVID hit and I forgot all about it and just sent them a reminder email, which they did respond and are sending out later this week. Just what you want to do to a new machine, looks like I have to pull up half the right side components to get that ramp in.

Yes, I had to do the same thing to mine. I have not gotten the ball stuck there ever since.

Do you get ramp shots rejected by that turn on occasion?

#7040 1 year ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

Sometimes, but the metal ramp just before it hits the wire ramp in the V cut the ball gets stuck , but I think that is because that ramp is broken. I just hope they send both soon so I can get this thing right. I don't know if I will buy another NIB because this one has been adjustment after adjustment and annoying. Don't get me wrong love the game but I don't understand why for this kind of money they can't fully warranty and send a technician to fix it. The other pin I bought was about 4 yrs old and has worked flaulessly. Don't know if that is luck or just someone else going through all the headaches of setting up and adjusting properly

I have a MBR LE and have had none of these issues or any other problems described in the MBr Owners Club. I also didn't have any of these issues with my previous original mb's. That makes sense since the playfield top is basically the same between the two. Hope you get your issues resolved soon.

#7042 1 year ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

I was getting rejections a lot, but I made another adjustment that helped with that.

The rejections were really coming from the plastic ramp cover, not from the wire form (the wire form was causing the stuck balls though). I added a couple of washers on the bolts that attach the plastic (underneath the plastic, so the plastic is raised a bit).

After I did that (and bent the wire frame to eliminate the stuck balls), I have not had any more problems with that ramp.

Yes, it's really hit or miss...while I did have the ramp problem(s) and the Frank switch issue, I did not have the problem with the center scoop sending the ball SDTM. My scoop has sent it nicely to the left flipper consistently.

Below is reply to above quoted response.
(These have been my first posts so not sure how to get it to appear with quoted answer and have my reply in normal post below it like others.)

Thank you so much!!! This seems to have fixed the ball getting stuck in right ramp wireform problem. I didn't know that would be a relatively easy fix. I appreciate your input.

To others, I have had ball also sometimes drop out of that same right wire frame before adjustment too, but is infrequent and I feel that is a little bit more part of just playing ('luck") then the issue of ball getting stuck.

By the way, good luck with your new wire ramp you mentioned, I agree that will be a lot of work to take off that right playfield.

#7045 1 year ago

Is the conclusion for the scoop shooting randomly and going STDM to put a piece of seal/foam in there then? Is that what works the best?
Thanks

#7046 1 year ago

Reply to 2manyhobbies:

Thank you so much!!! I appreciate the tip on this issue, since bending the right wireform slightly up as mentioned, there have been no stuck balls in the right wireform. The stuck ball issue had been so annoying as this was a NIB machine as well.

By the way good luck with your new ramp install, that is always tricky picking up the playfield to install those things.

My previous post reply looks like it posted weird as I tried to use "Quote this post in your reply" and my answer appeared in the shaded box area where others seems to show the abbreviated quote/post followed by usual post 'white' background color below.

These have been my first posts to Pinside so still getting used to it.

Once I get the ramp it will be all dialed in. I had almost everything. SDTM drains from scoop, power adjustment and I also think my level was just a bit off but that one solved, also had a weird one where the left ramp would launch the ball as it came around the Bride and either land right on top of the wire form, and sometimes roll off and get stuck behind the Creature sign but with that one I just had to tighten the two screws under the Playfield where the wire form attaches at the beginning of the ramp. It must have been sticking up just a bit cause the ball to get air time. Also had A problem with the ball getting stuck in the entry going into pop bumpers, far left lane the “D” in DIG actuator would not let ball roll down, there was a wire caught under there. Just a bunch of stupid stuff but it’s all good, I don’t mind tinkering and learning the inter works on my game.

Just add a spring washer before the coil stop to tighten the mech. I haven't had one down the middle in five months.
