Just got the call from the freight company number 163 will be here tomorrow!

#2702 1 year ago
Quoted from andrewket:

MBRLE arrived today. I haven’t had much time to play it, and I haven’t examined the play field under a microscope....
But... they shipped it without any pinballs. Not a big deal, but a bit humorous none the less. I sent CGC an email so they can be on the lookout for that subtle mistake.

You're fortunate.

I received a Stern machine with no pinballs AND no power cord!!

Stern soon took care of me, though.

I haven't played a Monster Bash since I ordered mine. Digital or in person.. I haven't even watch a gameplay video or anything just in anticipation for my upcoming game.. I've had the stupid Monster Bash song stuck in my head for 3 months now and it's starting to bother me. Think I'm slowing losing my mind and I'm going to be going to a location that has one this week. I don't know if I should give in and play one or not even look at it. It may make me sick playing one.. Idk

I'm waiting too. I went to a location and played an SE. It was awesome, and I just wanted mine more.

Trying to prolong it so that my honeymoon phase lasts longer. I have a problem with that. She's going to be bolted to the floor no doubt cause this was a dream game #1 game for me but I want to enjoy it as much as I can.

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

I'm not a very good picture taker, but here's my protector after 186 plays. If you zoom in, you can see a few dings, but not too bad.

Your game probably came that way. Mine looks the same and doesn’t have a game on it yet. Not 1 ball.

#2707 1 year ago

I know I saw a Frankenstein table mod somewhere. Should have grabbed one.

Found it! Mezel mods

#2710 1 year ago

How are the flippers supposed to be aligned on this game? The game came with the alignment hole in front of the flippers instead of flippers aligned with the hole behind the bat. Though if the flippers were adjusted that way I would think they'd be too high at that point on this game. I flipped through the manual but didn't see anything about proper alignment.

#2711 1 year ago

#597 in the house. So far quality wise everything is perfect. No playfield issues and flippers feel great. I think the sound is rocking and super loud. I removed the mirror blades and opted with art and added pinstadiums. GI isnt purple its just the bride mode and uv flasher in the picture

You can find it here in the pinside marketplace.

It’s also on eBay

How hard was it to get the mirror blades off? Would prefer the sillyoldelf art vs mirrors on the LE but didn't know if it was possible to get the mirrors off w/o messing up the cabinet.

Any chance you have some video of your pinstadiums on your MB?

I can do some video. If you hook it to the frakenstein flashers its soo cool with the fade and what not. Blades are easy, take out the small screws and the pivot hinges. Then get a small screw driver and pry it has some double sided tape

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Mezelmods. I will put up a review when I receive it tomorrow or thurs.

Just ordered mine last night.

Do you mind taking video of how it looks with the Frankenstein flashers?

Awesome and no cab damage or anything that would affect the artwork?

Yes video would be greatly appreciated. BTW which pinstadium setup do you have - UV glow or regular?

Thanks!

#2718 1 year ago

Side decals or mirrors? I like Sillyoldelf's decals. Whenever I get my LE I might want to use his design instead of the already installed mirrors. Trying to decide if I should do it or not. Which one would you do? Also, do the mirror blades brighten up the playfield a bit?

#2719 1 year ago

Kind of holding out to see if any cool powerbladez get released.

That would be sick!

#2721 1 year ago
Quoted from WizWiggy:

Great weekend for both MBrLE and AFMrLE at The Flipper Room!

Seeing that picture made me think “is that a picture frame shop with pinball machines” and checking out the website answered, “yes... yes, it is!”

https://theflipperroom.com

Not a bad way to increase traffic and hopefully they have some framed playfields on the wall so they can cater to both audiences.

Now if they ALSO did “shoe repair AND locksmith” the money would really pile up!

#2722 1 year ago

Have a MBRLE on order. What is the general consensus on adding a powered sub to this LE Remake? I have them on every game in my collection.

#2723 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballocd:

I find the audio quality to be very good on both AFMLE and MBRLE. I'm haven't felt the need to upgrade either one. I'd be interested if you find that it makes a significant impact.

#2724 1 year ago

Powered sub no question about it. It's really a why not. I haven't found a game that doesn't sound better.

Makes sense considering you're just enhancing the sound. I find the value add goes from nice to have to absolutely necessary. For my AFMLE it was a nice addition

We are a full service commercial/retail frame shop that has a dedicated shipping dept. and "flipper rooms" with 30 Machines. BTW, the owners father does shoe repair in Wisconsin, no joke!

I have a psw10 on mine and love it.. well worth the money!

#2727 1 year ago

Sub ordered thanks guys

#2728 1 year ago
Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Mine never gets stuck and I have my pitch set to 7.2.
I do get some frustrating SDTM drains coming out of the right orbit. Not a lot, but enough to piss me off, as there's no way I can save the ball. Anyone else seeing this? Sort of reminds me of TWDs right side orbit, but a little less severe.

not sure if anyone else answered this, but I put a slim stern post on the post near the guide and moved the guide back just a tad via the screw under the plastics. now all the full left orbits are hitting the right flipper.

Alternatively you could bend out the guide and it'll hit the Left flipper... but if it's still not a strong enough orbit it'll still go STDM

#2729 1 year ago

The main thing I've noticed is the scoop feed is a little inconsistent. I set it on +1 since it was going SDTM on default. Now most of the time it hits left, maybe 2 out of ten it hits high right. 1 out of 30ish still go STDM.

Where is the setting to reduce the power to the coils and flippers getting a few atirballs lol

hold down the green button till it shows up on the display. (Escape button I think)

Yes but I didn’t see any obvious setting from there

It’s on the third screen, I think. Flipper coil power.

It is pretty clear how to do it in the user manual

#2736 1 year ago
Quoted from mrfp:

Starts on page 1-10 in the manual. Shows how to get in and what to do, each section. Page 1-15 in the manual shows coil settings.

Here is a video to access the CGC menu on an AFMR -

Nice gameroom! I like how you have the pins angled....

#2738 1 year ago

My wife misses the Luci/Helen pin the most.

#2739 1 year ago

MBr SE needs 4 more ratings, MBr LE needs 5 more and MBr CE needs 13 ratings to get on the top 100 list.

Thanks! It was the holding down for 5 seconds that I wasn’t getting

#871 (Matched to my AFMRLE) showed up today. The box was a little bent but no damage, phew!

I did have an issue where the lights under frank and on the left speaker were out. Turns out in the right speaker there is a hub of wires and a board. One of the connectors in this board had come unplugged, in case someone has a similar issue.

Flipper strength -2 seems about the sweet spot for my game setup. Basically right at 6.5deg.

The glare from under the glass is a real issue (for me), I pulled a piece of invisiglass from another game and it is waaay better. The color changing GI is awesome but does cause glare on the standard glass which can be distracting.

#2742 1 year ago

Look s awesome! Congratulations! I've been jonesing for some unboxing pics - they don't happen often enough for me. I like the purple flippers - that looks a little different than the earlier ones that shipped (unless its just the lighting...).

Thinking about getting and Le, Can you guys chime in about gameplay? Is it a really fun family pin, You think it has lasting qualities in a small collection ?

Quoted from mtp78:

I think it's a great family pin. It's got good humor and everyone that has played it loves it. Plus it looks awesome. It will also have a lot different gameplay than the other 2 pins in your collection so it should give you good variety of games.
