SE for me!

#455 1 year ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

How long has it been since the SE people were asked to pay in full?
I was told that the LEs will begin shipping the week after Thanksgiving.

I paid two weeks ago for my SE.

#462 1 year ago
Quoted from mtp78:

I personally cant see getting an se with and le only being 800 or so bucks more shipped.i understand everyone wants different things but the le comes with some cool stuff.

I can't put toppers on because my ceiling is too low. I would like the shaker though. I can do without the other stuff.

#481 1 year ago
Quoted from MEuRaH:

I just received word via email that my SE is soon to be headed to my place starting today or Monday. WOOHOO!

I got the same message. My distributor said he would deliver it previously because I need him to get it downstairs. Not sure what is going on.

#484 1 year ago
Quoted from MEuRaH:

He simply copy & pasted the message to everyone. It's a lot easier than sending a personalized message to everyone on the list. Did you order through PinballStar aka Joe as well? I'm sure he'll be good to his word.

Yes. Joe just said the pin is coming from Chicago to me direct. I will have to muscle it down the steps with my friend. We are getting too old for that!

#485 1 year ago

Looks like Monday may be the day! This winter snow storm really messed things up.

#598 1 year ago

Just got word that my MBr Se may ship next week!

#646 1 year ago
Quoted from hollywood:

Where do you get the mylar? Is there different thicknesses? Please let me know!! Thanks man.

Marco has mylar sheets. You can cut shape to what you need.

#676 1 year ago
Quoted from drummermike:

MBr SE arriving on Thursday. Will take pics.

Just found out the first shipper that called had an AFMr to deliver on Thursday. Cancelled that. The second call from the other shipper was the one I was waiting for. They will deliver my MBr SE this Saturday.

Quoted from DJNOEL30:

That’s a nice line up! Can’t wait for my LE, I see you got a Circus Voltaire in there. That’s one of my dream games at the moment just haven’t had the opportunity to buy one. Congrats on your MB!

Thanks. I saw the CV for sale from Firebird Pinball. He did a nice job shopping it. I jumped on it right away! One of my favorites. Only pin I have beaten so far. You will love your LE.

#808 1 year ago
Quoted from DJNOEL30:

I have one of those VPCabs and play CV quite often, not the same but still a fun game. I've been anxiously waiting in the mean time I've been playing MB virtually on the Vertigo to hold me over hahaha

Not many CV out there. Good luck in finding one. Some people do get tired of it. I never tire of the ringmaster. Rudy is better though!

#823 1 year ago
Quoted from mrfp:

So far, so good with the phantom flip!

Mine works also!

#923 1 year ago

Just got the shaker in my SE working. Thanks to Plunger069! Set on light it is working great.

#925 1 year ago
Quoted from jbug:

What modes or events get the shaker going?

I have played a few games since the install. Hitting Frankenstein's monster during multiball shakes. Also some times when the Mummy sequence is going it shakes. There may be more that I have not experienced yet. It seems to be used sparingly. I like it a lot. Worth it!

#952 1 year ago
Quoted from jbug:

What modes or events get the shaker going?

Also shakes when Drac is hit.

#1004 1 year ago
Quoted from ShinyBall:

I'm a little surprised that this wasn't caught by some kind of quality control, now that we have had 2 people with issues stated. You would think that someone had to force it in and would realize that at the factory?
I can only hope they will look into it.

I had the same problem getting the translight out. It did come out with just a slight amount of force.

Quoted from MustangPaul:

OK guys with the SE, how is the upgraded sound package, is it worth the hype?

Sound is great. But the display is awesome! Do not know how the CE is though.

#1501 1 year ago

Pinside needs 10 more approved ratings for MBr Se to be in the top 100 list.

#1548 1 year ago

I have had my MBr SE for three weeks now. I put in side art from Pingraffix and a shaker. It has played almost perfect from the start with no adjustments. The scoop protector is wearing but looks OK. It is doing its job. The ball has come off the right ramp a couple of times and landed in the poppers. It plays fast and is fun. It is a great game.

#1774 1 year ago

My shaker is from AP and works great. I have it on the lower setting. Love it!

#1919 1 year ago
Quoted from dts:

Help me out...I'm on the list for MBRLE but have come across a STLE with a few hundred plays. Which will hold the most interest over time? I know, we are all different, but I'm curious what you guys think if you have a lot of experience on both.

Get both. I have had my ST for a while. I may not play it for a week or two but then when I do I remember how good it is. Multiball with the shaker is great. I just got the MBr SE. Always wanted MB but too much money. Glad I got the new pin. Different enough for me than ST. Lots of fun. I put shaker in MBr also. Will keep both.

Quoted from CGC-Ryan:

Happy New Year's Everybody.
I wanted to give everybody a quick update as to what is going on here at Chicago Gaming Company.
We are in production currently on the Monster Bash Limited Edition Serial Number matching games. We are working hard to get them completed to start our standard Monster Bash Limited Edition Production run. As you know we are committed to delivering the highest quality in all of our products, so we are taking a little extra time to ensure that every game is up to the quality that we demand.
We also have released a software update for all current Monster Bash games already delivered.
This update can be found here: https://www.chicago-gaming.com/coinop/monster-bash/update
This version includes the following enhancements and bug fixes:
1) Reprocessed audio to increase volume.
2) Fixed bug where custom logo would revert to default over a power cycle.
I want to thank everybody for all the support and wish everybody a Happy New Year

I tried with no success to update the new code. The folder says "MonsterBash102" only. No installer.img. I download a zip opener that did NOTHING. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

#2172 1 year ago
Quoted from LTG:

Please PM me your email address and I'll send you instructions Scott Tiesma made up. Might help you better.
LTG : )

PM sent. Thanks Lloyd.

#2174 1 year ago

Lloyd just sent better instructions that I will try later. Thanks. Was for Windows. free zip app from App Store.

#2179 1 year ago
Quoted from WizWiggy:

I'm having the same problem. No file to unzip, it's not a .img file. Following Windows OS instructions.

Lloyd just sent me better instructions that worked. I still had some confusion with the zip file though. Not sure what I did to get it working. You may have an easier time. PM me or Lloyd (LTG) for the instructions. Thanks again Lloyd!

#2184 1 year ago
Quoted from ninjabones:

I'm waiting for my MBR, somewhat confused by the mosh pit protection issues. Can someone confirm the latest recommendation? Is it to remove chest is included completely and replace drug the full sized cliffy and mantis protector?

My original protector is holding up. There is a mark where the ball is going in but no bad dents. I would wait and see how it holds up.

#2199 1 year ago
Quoted from Blackzarak:

Can anyone please help with the code upgrade process I did everything cgc required but I get a blank screen on my pin no upgrade?

See post 2179.

#2224 1 year ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

Has anyone done a speaker upgrade to LE/SE?
I was thinking about buying the Flipper Fidelity speaker upgrade.

Did you update your code yet? Sound is better now.

#2227 1 year ago
Quoted from indypinhead:

I'm getting the machine tomorrow. More than likely, it has the latest upgrade installed.

Great. You may be happy with the original set up. The FF speakers are great though. I put them in my LOTR and can hear so much more dialog.

#2228 1 year ago
Quoted from DANGERTERROR:

Anyone have any idea why Phantom Flip isn’t working/lighting out of the box?

I turned mine off.

Added 20 months ago:

Turned it back on.

#2409 1 year ago
Quoted from cscmtp:

Can someone tell me what's the best place to purchase Pdi or invisaglass (or whatever is considered the best glass and bang for the buck)

I got my invisiglass from JJP direct.

#2615 1 year ago
Quoted from shokel328:

Does anyone know when the TOP 100 list will have the remakes updated into an "MB group" (currently ranked at #3), similar to MM and AFM? is there a minimum number of ranks of the remakes required for them to enter?

Pinside needs 5 more ratings to get MBr on the list.

#2616 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

For the SE guys expressing frustration - I do understand your point You seem to be very particular though about the machine which leads me to something I don't understand. If you're that particular how in the world do you not get the LE version of this game? So much more value and you get the definitive version that it appears you're looking for.

I got my SE for the upgraded figures, sound and display. I added the shaker, side art and the plasma light. I have no room for a topper and would not want it anyway. The blue armor is nice but not needed. I do not like the lock down bar.

#2687 1 year ago

Just put in the Lermods plasma disc. It works and looks great. Should show or tell where to plug in though. Nothing in manual. Goes under the playfield on a dedicated spot.

plasma (resized).jpg
#2689 1 year ago
Quoted from Lermods:

Cool, glad you like it! Where to plug it in with pics and how to install it is in our instructions on our website. The packaging it came in also provides info on where to find the instructions.

I looked again and did find the info on the plastic bag it came in. Sorry about that!

#2690 1 year ago

Anyone know where the monster table wood overlay mod went?

#2692 1 year ago

Thanks. I will check it out.

#2715 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

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

Just ordered mine last night.

#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.

#2752 1 year ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Just get some Invisiglass or PDI on there and you're done!

You forgot the wood table cover.

#2822 1 year ago

I took the CGC hole protector out and just put a piece of mylar down. I cut a section of the protector out to stop the ball from hanging up but did not like the result. Mylar works!

#2904 1 year ago

Just to let you know, the table mod does not lower the arms. Kristen said the design was changed because of a fit issue.

#2963 1 year ago
Quoted from Mdanielb:

Have any of you guys that have split decals submitted a ticket to CGC regarding that issue? I contacted my distributor, that is what he instructed me to do. I did so on Monday, but haven't heard anything back. Just curious if anyone else is in the same boat. I'm not sure what to expect from them response time-wise.

I just looked at my MBr SE. The right corner is split. Not going to worry about it.

#3193 1 year ago

I got my MBr SE in December 2018. Houdini was NIB in February 2018. Both were flawless out of the boxes. The LOTR and LAH were both probably not cracked when new. I think they are cracking from the overlap and from shaking the pin during game play.

#3200 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

So the others are not even CGC and you are seeing the same thing on all of them...interesting..

No cracks on any of my Williams or Bally though.

#3204 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Is that because newer cabinets are made differently? Weren't old style cabinets brought to an angle at the corner to the point? Whereas these newer cabinets all appear to be flat box corners.

I know my TZ and CV have 45 degree angles at the corners. The decals are not wrapped around the corner.

#3326 1 year ago
Quoted from Bublehead:

One thing the Navy taught me to do as nuclear ractor operator was think outside the box, or on top of it
But honestly, when looking to solve issues like this, you gather as much info as possible, brainstorm all potential possibilities and then construct and conduct investigations that eliminate each possibility. Do we see CE’s and SE’s with decal cracks, no?, so why LE’s? The topper shipping box et. al. and it's 40 pounds of dead weight is a HUGE floating mass at the HIGHEST distance from mother earth, which is like the absolute worst combination. This would be on my list of “possibilities” along with “heat embrittlement” if they use hair dryers in the decal applying process, or “chemical embrittlement” if they use solvents for ANY cleaning operation, vinyl does not like some solvents and can become brittle when exposed to them. These three are the biggest what if’s on the list to be explored- phisical cause, thermal cause, or chemical cause. It falls into one of those three more than likely, so now figure out how to eliminate each one. That can take time, which is something CGC is already having a problem with on LE deliveries.

My SE is now cracked. It was not cracked when I got it NIB.

#3451 1 year ago
Quoted from Ledman62:

My start button light comes on at startup then goes off after sitting for awhile. Comes back on when game is started. Anyone else with this issue?
Thanks
Classic edition

I know when I play, the light is lit to use items collected.

#3469 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

SE has the bigger display?

Yes. Display is awesome. You can also easily add shaker and plasma disc. The disc from Lermods is colored. I added both.

#3470 1 year ago
Quoted from Dexter:

Another question about the bride. That voice sounds like the mom from Married with Children and the Futurama show. Katey Sagal. Is it?

I do not think so.

#3651 1 year ago

Only need two more approved ratings to get MBr on top 100 list.

#3745 1 year ago

We need one more MBr SE approved rating to get on the top 100 list!

#3799 1 year ago
Quoted from SkaterVet:

Anyone know the best place to buy Invisiglass? Is there a place that gives you a price break on more than one sheet?

I got 4 sheets from JJP. They shipped 2 and I picked up 2 at their factory. I have Magicglass on my Houdini. The Invisiglass and Magicglass are almost identical. They are both great.

#3807 1 year ago

The Invisiglass has a more green color. The Magicglass has a lighter less pronounced green hue when you look at the image of the overhead lights. They are different.

#3810 1 year ago

My 5 IG are all the same. Got them at different times. Glad they all do their thing!

#3834 1 year ago
Quoted from GCS2000:

Looking to add some LED Britebuttons to my LE when it arrives - what is everyone's opinion on color choice?
Original buttons were yellow. I see lots of redone OG games with blue. I think purple also works.
As I look at side art of the LE (with the blue trim) I am also thinking the green ones might be a solid choice as well.
TIA

Green or yellow.

#3850 1 year ago
Quoted from shock_me:

Has anyone else experienced a lot of rejects on the Brides ramp? Mine with a good flip will loop behind the Bride, and stop at the apex of the wire ramp, and roll back down. Everything seems to be adjusted right back there. Frustrating.

Mine does that a lot!

#4883 1 year ago
Quoted from Tradesman:

Is it normal for this game to have left ramp shots that don't make it all the way up the ramp to then roll back and drain out the right outlane every single time?

Mine did that till I increased the pf angle.

#4892 1 year ago
Quoted from Moeman65:

At what angle did you set your playfield and the flipper strength settings?

The flippers are at the factory settings. The bubble is just about touching the middle line. I do not know the angle.

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

How many people actually have a game? Every time I check this thread it’s about somebody disappointed or waiting for their delivery... who’s actually playing the game?

I have my SE about 5 months. Love it! Not as easy as lots are saying. FUN. Added side art, shaker, plasma disc and changed some rubber to add more color.

#5588 1 year ago
Quoted from Mr_Outlane:

Please post some pics!

I like the SOE blades but already had these. Plasma disc changes colors.

Mine gets stuck also. What is different about the Mantis ramp? Hard to tell from the pictures.

#5982 1 year ago
Quoted from Lounge:

The webpage explains that the “V” is not as wide as the standard ramp.

Thanks. Do you think it is worth $65?

2 weeks later
#6072 1 year ago

I fixed the right ramp ball stuck issue on my MBr. I took the ramp out and filed the V inner edges down. There were six small nubs. I also bent the ramp in slightly. No more ball stuck on ramp. I think this fix was posted before.

#6173 11 months ago

I have had my MBr SE for a while now. My high score is 477 million. Now when I play it is a huge drain monster. I am lucky to get 4 million now. PF angle is 6.5. I twisted the vuk to stop the SDTM and send the ball to the left flipper. It seems as if any ball coming down the pf heads SDTM.

#6176 11 months ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

From which side? You might want to think about increasing your angle a touch, and slightly raise the right legs (specifically the rear one by a couple of turns)

Thanks. Usually ball comes from the center or right side and goes SDTM. I will try your suggestions,

#6179 11 months ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

the other thing you can do is bend the right-hand ball guide (the one directly above Dracula) outwards - toward the middle of the playfield more. If you want to get really fancy you can add a thicker post rubber to the post in the area, which will keep the ball guide in place. I just bent mine gently with a padded screwdriver, but having the post rubber would make it more or less unmoveable. You don't need to bend it much, but just keep rolling a ball down and make sure it doesn't hit Dracula's feet (which is what causes most of the drains from the right orbit)

Never have problems with Dracs feet. I will bend the guide to see if that helps though. I raised the right side legs. So far it is slightly better. Have to play more to see results. Thanks again.

#6197 11 months ago
Quoted from Vabeachrunner4:

Random question that may have already been answered (sorry if it has) but I just updated my SE to the newest code and noticed immediately that the volume was “louder” at lower volumes and “cleaner” however I’m noticing a “vibrating” or “rattling” sound even with it turned down modestly to like a 4 or 5...has anyone else noticed this or am I just crazy?!

I have the MBr SE also. I have the new code and the volume is set at 1. I have no vibration or rattling until the shaker goes off.

Is the shaker worth getting on mbrse?
Whens it go off?

YES.

#6408 10 months ago
Quoted from fanuminski:

How come a shaker motor for a Stern Pin (ie: Star Wars Pro , Deadpool, etc...) costs only $110 but
one for MBRSE is upwards to $179 ?
Seems a bit excessive to me.. (supply and demand?)

I put in a shaker from AP that I got for "free" in my MBr SE. I used the power upgrade credit from my Houdini to get the motor. It works perfectly.

You could put in any compatible shaker from other sources.

Quoted from jorant:

To you guys that have owned this for a while, how are you liking it? I am looking to get another pin, and want a Monster Bash. Currently I have Dialed in and Hobbit, and love them, and am looking for a more shallow, quicker ball time game to compliment them. It is either this or an Attack From Mars. Just figured I'd ask some of you your thoughts on the game now that you've had it for a spell?

It will be shorter ball times. It can be a drain monster. It may be my least favorite in my collection.

It is fun sometimes though.

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Those flaps are the greatest invention ever. You can buy them at PBL for a couple bucks and save your games from being destroyed by ball bearing hail! most WPC games can accomodate them - although not TZ apprarently

Just put them in CV and MBr. Easy install.

Quoted from mbeardsley:

Which rubber pieces are recommended for this machine? I just had one of the original flipper rubbers break, so I swapped both out with "ordinary" red flipper bands that I had from Pinball Resource.
It plays MUCH better now, in that the response from the flipper is much more predictable. I think that the original bands had much less grip, making the ball sometimes sort of "slide" off of the flippers during a shot.
I was surprised how quickly this band broke. Are people using Titan bands, and if so does it make the game play any differently? I had been considering upgrading to Titans on my other machines soon, but didn't think the the MBr would need new rubber this soon. Does CGC use crappy rubber as stock?

I use Perfect Play silicone bands from Pinball Life in all my pins. Lots of colors to choose.

I tried Super Bands but the PP are better. Titans look great but I have not used them.
