Quoted from northvibe:

has anyone taken the topper apart? Looking for pics of the PCB and wires that plug into it

Is something wrong with yours or need troubleshooting help? Or trying to make a mod?

#8252 37 days ago

Finally. Took me almost a year. Epic game.

I have some of the parts, looking to make a topper that acts like the original.

I guess I don't see what the mod is...exactly what is it that took you a year to make?

Very cool!! Well, happy to take pics once I get mine set up again (currently wrapped up as I just moved).

Thank you!
I was pretty bummed when I couldn’t find an Le when I was ready. Of course after I open my SE there’s a LE fs but in NY. Love the nib experience but man the topper would be amazing next to mmr and potentially ccr.

I found a few of the parts. So I’ll need to just fab the speakers, back board, art and want to make sure the wiring is correct. Luckily the mmr has similar setup, but they use a different “topper” board.

Oh, I thought he had done something to the machine that took him a year. I didn't connect that to the score shown.

Is that a good score for most owners here? Not trying to poop on anyone's skills, but 500 million is just a "pretty good" score for me.

dang.. I'm new to the game and don't play like slow taking specific shots often. So my flipping on the fly nets me 20-50 million average and I've had 1 game so far that broke 60 and got me on 4th place, iirc? Game is all default everything except freeplay. I was curious how you get 500 but I assume people are getting into multiballs or some good scoring mode and really hitting the right things.

Sounds awesome. Would love to learn more about this build.

Never seen a bit that fit this on the speaker grill... anyone have an idea?

Plastic protectors. Who has them and which ones did they go with? Mezel or Pinball Life?

I think starting multiple monster modes right before you start Frank multiball can put some big points up. 500 is a huge score for me. I think 700 was my best ever.

The real advantage of having other monster modes running when you start Frank multiball is that the timers for the other monsters get paused while the multiball is active. This means you have a lot better chance of collecting the instruments.

The real way to get big points on MBr is to get to the second or third Monsters of Rock, which means you need to be good at collecting the instruments.

+1. I only get to MoR maybe once every 30-50 games, but when I do it can double my score if I have a decent go of it.

Thanks! You can see I never collect all the instruments. I can collect 5, but I’m forever shooting the bride ramps. I think 16 ramps are needed to start and finish that instrument? Unless the scoop can advance that mode, or you can get free shots via the launch button? The only way I can complete her mode is to start it first and focus on it.

#8274 35 days ago

I had a great ball 1 with bride, drac, mummy ready to go with a shot to frank....annnnnnnd then started and drained dang. I'm glad I suck at pinball, it makes playing MBr soooo much fun Just installed the pinball decal target decals this am! And the shaker motor shows up today.

I ONLY seem to be able to complete Bride in multiball, where there is no timer. I love bringing it into Bash because by then I usually have a couple of bombs too. So I flail flail flail (it is more fun for the kiddos watching or "helping" that way) and then after Bash ends, I can be close enough that the bombs finish it for me.

Funny thing is both wolfie and bride I can start no problem. I can chain the shots like a pro....and then the timer starts and it is brick city.

I am my own worst enemy.

Hmmm I've been thinking this too. The mezel mods set I think looks nice
I dont know if I like the PBL one having green that like GB goes from the slings to the inlane.....half the price though.....

I think I'll do the mezel plastics and I need to find the orange ones for MMr

Agree - that green slingshot one from PBL covers the in-lane space, correct? Couldn’t tell from their website pics. If so, not a fan.

The other thing to remember about getting the Bride instrument is that hitting the spinner shot will reset the timer. So, what I usually do once I start the Bride mode, is make 2 or 3 ramp shots and then hit the spinner to give me back the time I used and then repeat. The spinner will let you re-load the timer 3 times per mode. Note that this only works for the Bride mode, the spinner does NOT reset the time for any of the other modes.

ohhhh nice tip!

#8281 35 days ago

Mmmm the mods started rolling in.

Pinball decals for stand up targets

And pinball pimp decal for the apron above the shooter

Shaker motor installed, that is a nice and easy install.

Mezel mods frank table and Tesla coils just need to be installed!

I’m just a pinball mortal. This was the first time I got monsters of rock, and just had an epic game (for me). Nearly doubled my prior high score. Now that I’ve done it, and learned a few tricks, I can see how much higher scores are possible.

#8283 35 days ago

Plasma disc
Mezel Tesla coils
Frank’s table

Man these look good in the game!

C34F8B75-05D0-4A48-BB19-F820EB7A8794 (resized).jpeg

Tesla coils feel loose sorta so if they fall off when the pf is lifted, I’ll add thicker double sided tape

I think I’ll order some more.

The shaker is not used a ton on this game is it? I like it and always love a shaker but it seems a tad under utilized and mostly for frank

Just picked up an LE last week after wanting this machine since I first played it in 2013 as a freshman in high school. Worth every single penny. Only question, does anyones ball get stuck right next to the bride in the specific spot that I took a picture of? Has happened twice now.

Is this from the ball rolling back down the ramp (not complete ramp shot) or is this from a standard shot and it just gets stuck there?

Congrats! Have you checked pitch angle and side to side level with phone on the playfield? (if using the app)

Played Jersey Jack GnR in the wild at Boxcar Barcade in Raleigh for the first time today. Also played their MBr. The GnR was riddled with dimples. Far more than the MBr. They both played great and it was a ton of fun.

I installed a shaker motor a while back and since then it's been like 'Is that it????'. I even checked to make sure it was set at it's strongest but it just doesn't do much. Is that the case with this machine?

Mine is clearly noticeable and I don't believe I have it on the highest setting either. Have you messed around with the setting in the CGC menu?

I only went in to make sure it was set on 'Strong'. Not nearly as strong as my BKSOR or Hot Wheels, which rattles the glass on a medium setting.
On Monster Bash I can feel it, it just doesn't seem to go off very often.

If I recall, it goes off in the pops, when Frank’s table is hit and when the game ends. Might be a few more instances, but it’s not much more active than that.

I found out there are fixes for the shaker in the 1.0.3. Update so I installed it. It said it was successful but on reboot I'm getting this and it doesn't go any further? What should I do?

IMG_20211111_123122968 (resized).jpg

#8298 19 days ago

I went back, reformatted my card and tried it again. When the install program came up on the machine it said Current Version: none.
So, I reinstalled 1.0.3.B6.
It said it was successful, but when rebooted it doesn't get past the screen I showed before. It stays on for about a minute, goes out, then comes back on again.

wonder if Lloyd has any any tips. I would make sure the beaglebone is plugged in and the cables on that are pushed on. maybe reseat them on the cpu board?

I'd start all over. Format the micro SD card. New download of the update. Stick it on the micro SD card. Insert it in the game.

See if that does it.
