#1844 6 months ago

I'm kickin' around the idea of joining the remake club. Can anyone say if there have been many changes since the original MMR as far as circuits? still using a beagleboard?

#1860 6 months ago

Any idea what the color upgrade costs on the standard?

#1908 6 months ago

I thought ST rules felt lame fairly quick.

Quoted from ShinyBall:

I worry that the "fix" could be worse then the split.

If I got a cab decal set I'd be happy.

#2929 5 months ago

Does anyone know if phantom flip works with lightning flippers?

#2936 5 months ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

I can't imagine FT or BSD without lightning flippers - way too easy.

I love the lightning! Got an extra pair ready to go in.

#3095 5 months ago

Where do you get the speaker panel Williams decal?

#3227 5 months ago
Quoted from Reznnate:

Out of curiosity, what are you guys expecting CGC to do about cracked decals?

I'm cool with an extra set of decals.. For those that don't work on games I'm sure that's very underwhelming.

#3236 5 months ago

Williams used a superior joint.

#3366 5 months ago

Got my delivery scheduled for Sat. Ugh I wish I could take off work and get it tomorrow.

I figured for the $400 color chip I'm pretty much halfway to the SE anyway. big screen, plus color GI plus the fancy toys.

#3510 5 months ago

I don't see how it would be cheaper.. If they ever sell the topper or whatever LE parts it will probably be expensive enough to convince people to buy LE. Sort of how the $400 color upgrade convinced me to go SE.

#3530 5 months ago

The schematics for the topper are in the manual.. Seems possible they sell toppers later on.

#3539 5 months ago

Light bleeding into Creech was killing it for me.. Put some tape along the nearby pcb and he's totally dark now.

#3592 5 months ago

Mine had a door key taped in the coin reject and another with the manual.. Backbox was like ltg says

#3645 5 months ago

Anyone get a knocker to work? I got power on the knocker plug, seems straight forward, no joy.

#3647 5 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

I'm curious what plug you are talking about ? Since Monster Bash has a virtual knocker, and not a mechanical one.
LTG : )

This one - J115

#3649 5 months ago

Bummer... MBR has everything needed too. Software update?
This MBr owner votes yes please!

#3654 5 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

I believe that would be in the Williams software, and since the original didn't have it. I doubt they could add it.
LTG : )

Go get it CGC!

#3659 5 months ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

I was gonna say i had a real knocker in my mb

Any idea if the coil test let you fire it? The version in mbr skips over the knocker coil.

#3665 5 months ago

I turned off knocker sound but didn't see the coil appear in test.. Will poke around more tonight. If anyone gets it going please let me know. I even got the spooky brand coil which seemed appropriate.

#3678 5 months ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

I thought we were finally over this real knocker craze?

Fake knockers might do it for some guys...

#3681 5 months ago

Drac slams his guitar on replay.. You want some good time rock and roll plastic banana knock or a real knock that makes people in the room jump?

#3713 5 months ago

What's the low volume issue?

#3727 5 months ago

I don't have much hands on with an original mb, but my whitewater project was built in an old monster bash cabinet. I can say the mbr and likely all the remake cabinets are way nicer than originals. Real plywood on the bottom, instead of particle board, a much nicer finish to the inside. CGC puts a solid package together. Small touches make me smile, like the color cards with rules and game credits in the apron which a home collector would add to their game instead of whatever lame black and white crap you usually get.

Quoted from cscmtp:

Anyone getting frequent bounce outs of the extra ball hole part of the playfield?? Is there a solution for this?

Bump flipper power down a couple notches. Default seems pretty strong.

Did a kinda metal shine look on the Williams logo..

#3942 4 months ago

I feel ya, I just didn't like the look of cgc in there... They need a stylized font or something.. Too blah for my taste.

#4127 4 months ago
Quoted from pghpinfan:

Does AFMr LE work the same way? Should I make that adjustment on that machine too? Thanks

Yeah, no need to power save with leds

#4154 4 months ago
Quoted from Plunger069:

I did adjust the left side switch on the MBR but still have the intermittent problem.

Man I love intermittent problems

#4171 4 months ago
Quoted from delt31:

dumb question but does Franks ramp get used for more than starting and restarting frank MB? I love that shot so hopefully yes?

It opens up during mosh put multiball

#4192 4 months ago
Quoted from Greenandwhite:

I apologize if this has been asked before but if there are 1,250 LE’s being made how long would you guesstimate someone has to buy one NIB? Are they likely to sell out of that edition this year?

AFAIK CGC is sold out, but i'll bet there's a few distros with one in stock.

#4202 4 months ago

Even the original mb has a particle board bottom

#4410 4 months ago
Quoted from Diospinball:

2nd question... Why no real knocker. I have a fake knocker... Did the original game not have a real knocker? Pretty sure it did.
And if it did... I thought these were supposed to be built from the real specs nothing left out.
So where the hell is my knocker????????

As far as I can tell there's a software hurdle to adding a knocker. Please complain to cgc and hopefully they enable it in a future update.

#4425 4 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

That would have to be in the Williams stuff, not the CGC stuff. So I don't think they can play in that sandbox.
LTG : )

Sorry, That's incorrect... Even by your own words.

Has anyone added more GI lighting? I got a couple lights wired to 12v, but would prefer to have them go on and off with the rest of the GI instead of always on. Anyone have info on this?

#5566 55 days ago

What's "super 6"??

#5581 52 days ago

I just got rock before bash the first time.. you get 50Mil just for starting monsters of rock on top of everything else in that scenario.
