Quoted from Adams:

[quoted image]
I keep getting balls stuck when hit too hard up the mummy ramp. They fly out of the ramp and land on the plastic in the back, then roll down and get stuck: sitting on the plastic, wedged between the wire ramp and the cabinet (picture attached).
Anyone else have this issue or know how to fix?
Thanks in advance
-Adam

On my machine this isn't possible. Is it possible to slightly bend/adjustment either the wire ramp or plastic to avoid this? I had the glass off and looked hard, and can't see a way a ball would stick back there.

Thanks for confirming this shouldn't be possible, that actually helped confirm when I had fixed this.
It looks like the ramp was just bent to lean a bit right (using roll/pitch/yaw directions, it was rolling with the right side too far down) once I bent it up a bit, the wire form doesn't even come close to the ball if I place it on the plastic. Now it would just roll down the plastic and into the shooter lane... but an added benefit of bending to the appropriate position is the ball doesn't eject from the ramp anymore to get into that position in the first place.

Does anyone have an used Frank figure with his two legs attached for sale? Please shoot me a PM if you do. It’s a route MB so doesn’t need to be perfect. Thanks!

Hoping for some help here. On startup I get an error for F8 U.L. Flipper But., the switch table says F8 is up lft flip opto, but in the switch locations chart it says F8 is not used and list description ad upper left flipper cabinet.

Been in pinball awhile and this one has me scratching my head.

Quoted from J_Striker:

Tests - Switch Edge - push left flipper button in slowly. First lower opto should register, then upper opto ( F8 ) should register. Lane changes, initials, etc. See if it works, needs cleaning, if opto interrupter is moving enough to trigger it.

Swap left and right flipper button opto boards to see if problem moves. ( bad opto )

Quoted from Bublehead:

I like CGC's build quality, but I won (lost?) the dimple lottery so this current pf isn't getting any major polishing or waxing, just a quick wipedown now and again and I'll play daphuck out of it and consider it a learning lesson on NIB purchases going forward.

Dimples are normal, here have a look at an original

Every single B/W game I've owned had dimples, they all show in the right light and circumstances.

Wow this guy has pretty high hopes to get 20k. Me I would take my remake for a little over 7k and buy one or two more pins. Freaking rediculous.

NO gjm777, NO! RUN! PROTECT YOURSELF! You may as well have said puppies are ugly. The "dimples are a defect" people with clubs and chains are approaching you. You better take it back now.

#8111 71 days ago

Not a single one of my Williams machines has ANYTHING dimpled like my MBrLE... and yeah, they have factory mylar, but even in areas without it, no dimples. My Stern Family Guy, some dimples, but no where near the MB. My South Park, no freaking dimples... the wood they use these days is not as hard as it used to be, hands down, no way as hard. No one can convince me otherwise. Do B/W dimple? Yes, they did, but comparatively, no where near as bad as my MBrLE. Do I care? Not about the wear, but the machine value as it gets worse is definitely going down, and that sucks. But my pins are all bolted to the floor, so it doesn't concern me, now that I have a new playfield to someday swap out.

What color flipper bats and rubbers are you guys liking?
My white bats stand out .....

#8113 65 days ago

I've stuck with the white flippers with black rubbers, its supposed to match the "keyboard" motif on the apron with the white and black organ keys.

Blood Red Flippers w/ Black Bands Look Amazing. Yes?

#8115 65 days ago

I actually like that.

#8116 65 days ago

Thanks. I’ve also swapped out the yellow flipper buttons w/red flipper buttons and on order is a red lensed start button to replace the yellow start button, too. The red really pops!

Wow , that really pulls all the red out and gives it a cool look . Never would have thought of that.

#8118 62 days ago

I think the red looks really good.

I've currently got purple on my game.

Feel like I am missing something simple here, but does anyone have hints on how to remove the bride figure? I've been wanting to paint this. I'm not a fan of the design on it, don't think I will ever get the head back on properly.

Start Under the playfield - the bride’s head is on a curved rod that locks into the coil directly underneath the playfield. You loosen the retaining screw and pull the head/rod straight up. It can be a huge pain to line up again, so be patient!

Not sure if I am even in the right place to ask my question but here goes…..
I was “Blessed” to locate and purchase a NIB Monster Bash SE. I just purchased this a couple days ago (7/16/21)and it is currently in transit to my home. Oh man I’m Excited
According to Pinside, this machine is “ still in production”. I’m sure this is incorrect and was wondering if somebody on this site could confirm production status and may know when the Last One was produced.

#8122 58 days ago

How much does the shaker motor add to the game? I'm trading for a SE this weekend. I'm pretty pumped!

#8123 58 days ago
Quoted from bossk4hire:

I think the shaker is well-used in this game, e.g. when bashing Frank or when Mummy's coffin opens. I highly recommend it.

I don’t think any are being made. Sure there are some in boxes still in few places but CGC is on to the next one (CC)…until they announce a rerun or special release. (Like Royal on MM)

#8125 58 days ago

Shaker , for sure, almost a given on any modern game

#8126 58 days ago

+1

I love the shaker integration on my MBr.

#8127 55 days ago

posted my MBrLE in the market place.
Every mod, under 1000 plays one owner.
Game is perfect.
10,000 firm and will donate to pinside if it sells here first.
No trades, limited shipping within 100 miles of 22727 or shipping where buyer makes all arrangements.

#8128 55 days ago

Absolutely loving the SE new to our house! Waiting on the shaker motor. Thank you all for the suggestion.

Quoted from 2manyhobbies:

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
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Im having the same issue... Frankenstein isn't registering all the hits when he's up.... anyone have some ideas? Thanks

Adjust the switch behind him. Make adjustments past the body of the switch so you don't effect the tiny knob the blade pushes into the switch body.

Be sure the bracket holding Frank hasn't slipped out of the slot holding him.

Yup that’s the fix. Happened to me and kept reverting so may need to bend it a bit so stays in place more permanently.

#8134 49 days ago

Anyone know of any lollipop rails that would work?
I'd love to protect the cabinet around the flipper buttons.
Thanks!

Yea, I just cut some clear sticky vinyl pieces around the flippers. Works great.

You need to post this in the strangest place you have got a ball stuck thread

#8141 46 days ago

I was checking the prop strength in the CGC menu because I'm still getting stdm returns from the scoop about 1 out of 10 times. I added some felt with adhesive backing to the scoop's right side, which seems to help.

BUT ... somehow I reset all of my high scores! This is the second time it's happened, I have no idea what I did. Is there some sort of button combination or something?

#8142 46 days ago
Quoted from cloggedDrain:

I don't know if this is the same issue that I ran into, but my scores reset after 2000 games played. This can be changed in the menu system. I'm not sure what else would cause that to happen short of manually resetting them. Maybe a battery issue?

#8143 45 days ago

Weird, I’m around 1700 games. Seems like only high scores were erased. I’m starting to suspect the battery. I did turn the game off and on a few times when I was cleaning and adjusting the scoop, maybe it’s related

Just joined the club and love my MBrSE. However after only a week or so of having it the drop targets that light Frank’s body parts aren’t coming up anymore. And frank is up on his table. It’s basically just a ramp that feeds the right flipper and I have jo way of collecting his body parts.

This is only me second machine (first is NIB AIQ premium) so I’m unfamiliar with pinball troubleshooting and whatnot. Would love any guidance how to test and fix this issue.

Go into test mode and see if you can get it down raise and lower on its own, not in the game

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Please go into Tests - T.18 Frank - run in up and down. See what he's doing. If he or the targets don't move.Targets are T.17 up/down Bank. If they aren't moving. Check to be sure the motors are still plugged in. On the targets, there is a cam behind them the motor turns in an oblong groove, check if it came out. If the targets get bent forward that can happen.

Can't wait to earn my first MoR!

Rejoining the club with an SE with awesome blue powder coat soon. Worked out a trade for a game I really like, but couldn’t pass on a minty MBr SE! Plus, I was fortunate to add a MMr and an AFMr this summer, so I’m finally going to have all 3 of these amazing pins at the same time! Plus, I heard a rumor from a little bird that Silly Old Elf may have another run of his fantastic MB art blades available soon! If you haven’t seen them, check them out. I had them on my SE in 2019 and I love the art. Muck? Seaweed? Algae? Pond Scum!!!

#8149 32 days ago

Please post a pic with your blue powder coat when you get the game. I was considering doing my legs up in some medium/lighter blue.

Agreed, the silly old elf inner cab art is awesome.
