Number #149 being delivered tomorrow,
I know numbers are random just seems to be a low number ? Distributor had 6 games had a choice of 5 numbers and all were under 200. For me no issues is the most important thing .

Quoted from the4Orr:

MBrLE in da house!!!! Sorry @bublehead, you have lost another comrade in waiting, your ranks are thinning Got the call late yesterday. Today we picked it up and it is now gracing our home with it's presence in a place of honour next to our #CFTBL. No real cosmetic issues...the "m" on "Blisterine Mouth Wash" is not complete as some others have stated and we also had the same issue as @steve-o with our leg bolts seeming like they were cross threading. It seems the holes are slightly off centre and was causing the bolts to get hung up on the metal brackets. We loosened the brackets and readjusted their positioning slightly and it helped quite a bit. A couple bolts were still tight to be sure. Other than that the cabinet is pretty much perfect, no decal problems, no powder coat scratches, no flipper problems and no topper problems. Had a few good games with pitch set at CGC recommendation. The light show is awesome and it sounds really good! We will add things and tweak a bit here and there but right out of the box this is SWEET! Sorry for the crappy pic's

You made a Home Run with "Creature From The Black Lagoon" besides "Monster Bash"... It looks simply amazing, I take off my hat for that!

#4553 7 months ago

By the way fellas, I just saw that "Monster Bash" it is #1 in our top 100... congratulations!

I canceled my Munsters LE, probably will cancel now a Munsters Premium to get a MB Instead, this game looks extremely nice.

MB is a beautiful game but don’t give up on the Munsters too soon. I can’t explain it but after getting my LE I was into then
Not, put it up for sale then really got into shots to hit and now I’m really liking the game. I know with code updates and dialing in the game it’s only going to get better. If I could only have the one of the two that would be tough considering I had a MB original for years

Lol who cares about the top 100 its so manipulated..... also i enjoy munsters more much more than mb . Both are very similar but there's more to munsters for me but everyone sld own monster bash at least once .

Your exactly right it can be manipulated. Point proven with Munsters currently sitting at #3 spot with only 88 ratings or JJPPOTC sitting at #5 with only 193 ratings compared to AFM @ #4 with over 1300 ratings or TZ, LOTR, and MET sitting at #6, #7, and #8 all with over 1100 ratings. I think the number of ratings should be a big factor in the Top 100. Maybe a machine shouldn't even be allowed in the top 100 without at least 800 ratings? This would show a machines true value as it would be much harder to manipulate the score

Today marks 5 months of waiting for my le. Still haven't heard a peep.

#4558 7 months ago
Quoted from MERGatroid:

Hello everyone. Looking for some thoughts about weather to get a munsterspro or monster bash so. Seeing people selling Munster pro and le in 1 week. I have a aerosmith pro I love and looking to add to my collection. I love old horror movies. I was a little kid when munsters came out. So both are great themes to me.

Buy both. I bought a Munsters Pro and Monster Bash CE. Very happy with both. Different games, Different strokes, but both Very Nice.

#4559 7 months ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

U can call and pick it up.. i did this with munsters

We are just going to wait it out. Have league nite Thursday night and delivery is Friday. Planning to have an unboxing party Friday night.
It's not my game. It's my buddies game (not a Pinsider). I take care of his games and we both have off work Friday so works out great.

Weird, yes, but not unusual - it’s on a Biiiiiig truck and sometimes schedules don’t line up. There must be something else in that shipment that got paid to be there ASAP

Oh, I heard something... just wasn’t what I wanted to hear.

#4563 7 months ago

anyone had a a problem with the ball getting stuck under the plastics near creature? Played the game in cidercade last night and the ball kept getting stuck up there. gave up in the end, but the LE is so super shiny- very impressed.

#4564 7 months ago

Best score yet!

Quoted from Bublehead:

Oh, I heard something... just wasn’t what I wanted to hear.

It's not bothering me so much right now cause I'm a Cpa and work pretty much every day until April 15 so my pinball time is basically none right now. Once I'm done and I get my life back I'll be pretty pissed cause I'll be approaching 6 months at that point, although I'll be leaving for Vegas so maybe I won't get mad until after I get home from Vegas. Or maybe I'll hear something soon.

#4566 7 months ago

Just curious if anyone knows the logic on why the drag mech under the playfield was mounted in such a way that it is visible on the playfield? I know it was that way on the original MB, and honestly I never really noticed it one way or the other until I started inspecting my playfield. At first I got excited thinking it was some cool feature that was part of the game, but then when I raised the playfield and looked under that's when I realized it was just the drac mech. Just seems like an odd design to have the mount visible on the playfield.

I was asking myself the same question

Quoted from PtownPin:

I was thinking the same... Sensors? Magnets? Lifted playfield... what!?
Seems lame. Would've been relatively easy to address the playfield art change too.
Would love to hear a good reason for why it was designed and left that way.

#4569 7 months ago

The metal studs are like this to hold the weight of the mech... regular wood screws wld strip and rip out eventually.

Thanks for ruining it! Not sure i noticed that before. Now I can stop seeing it!

I'm joking - well kind of. It does stick out now more than before.

#4571 7 months ago

Must have been a hiccup in the tracking info and was still tracking the truck.
Tracking now shows truck was unloaded at ATGLAN Pa.
Fingers crossed it will get delivered tomorrow.

The drac mech is heavy... pretty sure they were trying to ensure it doesn’t rip the game in half, or tear through those holes, using established hardware

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

While I do agree that in 1998 mounting it that way probably made sense, I would have thought that in this day and age there would be a way to secure it without it showing on the PF. I am glad that CGC kept everything the same as the original (well sorta, since the lighting, sound, and display is upgraded), and I guess that's why they kept the mounts showing on the PF the same, to keep it the exact same as the original.

Not really a big deal, more of a disappointment to discover it wasn't some cool feature that I'd see when I finally reached monsters of rock mode.

On an unrelated note, but adding to the invisiglass, PDI, Stern discussion, I put the Stern glass on mine, and it's amazing. Zero reflection that I can tell, no weird colors or anything. Really makes the game look incredible vs. the standard glass. I'll try and post pictures to show before / after when I get back home.

Ha - I know right.... I didn't notice it at first when I started playing the game, but one day I saw them and got excited thinking it was something cool - Would have been cool if they had just done some artwork over top of them to make them blend in. Oh well, the game is still absolutely beautiful even with them there.

#4576 7 months ago

This machine has my pinballs in it's hand- I just got my highest score - 75,000,000 after owning it for about 1.5 months.

My neighbor who plays once in a while got 119,000,000 on his 3rd try. I do better at Ghostbusters lol.

I placed an order two days ago. Looks great. I love the horror movies stars watching the show. Chucky, Freddy, Jason, Leather face. Very Cool, Enjoy the show.

#4582 7 months ago

I really like it, but I kind of wish it had the game name/logo on it.

That's the same way I feel as well. I really like the art though but would miss that logo too much. Def considering as a sep piece of art though

#4584 7 months ago

I dig it for sure, wonder what that costs

#4585 7 months ago
Quoted from GCS2000:

$225

#4586 7 months ago

Not bad at all and it comes backlit like that? Do you know the size?

#4588 7 months ago

I thought about ordering that backglass. I just wish it was tempered glass instead of plastic.

#4589 7 months ago

Anyone have issues with Frankenstein s arms getting bashed by balls ... resulting in movement of one or both out of original position??? I’ve had to adjust them multiple times?

#4590 7 months ago

Well, number 915 shipped today. I cannot wait to get it next week.

I ordered this and the Alien art from the booth too. Looked too great to pass up.

#4592 7 months ago

Flipper sticking in locked deployed position.

SOLVED!

I opened a ticket with CHicago Pinball Help.

They recommended I loosen the screws on the circuit board by the flipper button, seat and then reseat the connectors, and finally screw back on. NO DICE. Same problem.

They then recommended I swap circuit boards with the left and right flipper buttons. Begrudgingly, I did with little confidence it would work. I WAS WRONG. So far has been working.

My hope is that if anyone else encounters this challenge, my post will help.

#4593 7 months ago

UPDATE!!!!

NOT SOLVED. It worked for a game or two and reverted to the old problem. Once I hear back on next steps I’ll post again.

#4594 7 months ago

On the problem of SDTM from scoop, or off Drac’s feet. Of three MBrSE’s I played at TPF so far, two were unplayable due to this, and a third SE had a tilt set so tight, I tilted out every ball, and not due to me being too handsy but the padding on the carpet gave it enough movement that any agressive button pushing at all gave me a “til-til-tilt”. This was in CGC’s own booth, so this was a bit disappointing.

Do your yellow buttons have screws in them, that are touching the flipper opto interruptor? That's the typical way to resolve this

Quoted from Sebastian88:

Try turning down your flipper power if you haven’t already. I got a lot of air balls until I did. This really helped with mine. Mine is set to -4

I had the same issue wth the tilt on mine until @ me to check leg bolts. Solved. Perhaps solved too tightly as now it’s tough to nudge but at least I don’t get tilted out every multi-ball.

As for SDTM and Draco feet’s I had that early on but this instances have subsided. They still happen but not nearly as frequently. Not sure why as I have done nothing to adjust either,

#4598 7 months ago

I’m having issues with balls off drac’s feet and SDTM drains out of the scoop. Game is almost unplayable, what are the solid fixes to these two issues. Also have had sticking right flipper button issue.

Game is gorgeous, but you’d think they’d have fixed these issues by now.

#4599 7 months ago

Raise your right side front leveler a bit so that the ball tends to lean left coming out the scoop and off Drac's feet. I found this alleviated 90+% of my SDTMs. Yes the game will now be just a hair out of level but I'll take it. Still get an SDTM every so often but not much.

#4600 7 months ago

Hmm...well I guess if purposely making my game not level fixes the issues, I guess I’ll take it. It’s jist too painful as it is.
