I was directed to post here to get some opinions. If some members would not mind, could you pop over and check out my thread here:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/rfm-test-report-errors#post-5297466

I have my machine 100% now but there a few unanswered questions and opinions I was hoping to get. Thanks!

Quoted from Fliptronic:

Anyone w/ a Nucore system been able to success apply the new SW updates if so - how did you do it? I have the wiring loom, shaker, knocker and can't wait to try midnight madness - any tips on how to manage?
Appreciate the help and step by step instructions greatly apprecated

I am pretty certain you can update Nucore/pinbox just like you would a factory machine via serial rs232/null modem cable and a laptop. There is a port just to the left of the coin door when you open it. I'm not sure what the actual fupdate command you type in but if you Google RFM fupdate I bet you will find a post I this thread detailing everything.

Here is a YouTube link that might help you out:

Quoted from Fliptronic:

So to add a little bit more color to the post. Was running Nucore 2.25 up to this point and fully working - followed all the instructions to a tee, root access etc. removed and replaced the files in both instructions sets (both the youtube clip and pinballs instructions) but now machine gets caught in an endless loop the error screen captured above was inbetween the loop where essentially the Nucore bootup screen comes on then black screens to this. Which once again leads me to the question is anyone w/ Nucore running this update? I know that everyone is saying pinbox file structure is the same as Nucore but if that was the case then the udpate should have worked as I accessed all the files and replaced according. I believe most are using pinbox who have applied the update but would like to hear from someone using Nucore on if they had any issues. And thanks to all on this forum for the help.

From everything I have read, it really should just work. I would gather all requisite files again and checksum. If hashes for checksum are not known, have the creator generate them (MD5 works easily enough) with a tool like GTKHash - that way you can be certain there is no corruption in the files uploaded/downloaded/transferred.

Quoted from thesav:

Hey Revengers, I'm having a small issue with my v2.10 machine (haven't had a chance to update to 2.20 yet) - When I go to Settings > Adjustments > High Scores & change the Default Champion or Default HSTD scores it doesn't seem to have any effect..
Anyone know how to change the default scores? I've done it on previous versions…
Thanks

You also need to reset hstd (reset all the scores to default) to have the updated values reflected.

#3372 52 days ago

I am planning on upgrading all the bulbs to LED (no color). Too many good BF deals to not make the jump. I was wondering if anyone can assist me in this?

Do I need to worry about strobing with the GI or other lights that dim on RFM? Like when the top GI (where the skill shot is) dims the whole area?

Are there any LED bulbs that still work with the test/diagnostics report?

Pop bumpers have regular bayonet style #44 in them, right?

By a quick count I see I need: 57 #44, 55 #555, 3 #906, and 4 #89. Is that the proper quantity? I know that the manual was dead wrong for rubber parts, don't want to put in an order again just to find out something was wrong in the manual for the lamp matrices.

I was planning on using 2smd frosted soft or warm white all around.

Thanks!

Quoted from wayout440:

What the heck is MRS?

This is a post in error - he is referring to CFTBL.

#3379 50 days ago

The more I think about this, the less likely I am to do LEDs. There are some fun lighting effects that I will miss with LED - unless newer LED bulbs operate just like the incandescents.

Anyone know of a good place where I can order bulk 44/555?

Quoted from Sonic:

Nope, not a post error - you can look a few threads back in this forum to read more about the MRS'....our RFM's contain 3 unobtanium switches known as magnetic reed switches (MRS) - earlier this year I reproduced them to make them available to owners of pins that had them such as RFM....CV, CC, SWEP1, NBAFB, SC & NGG....as well as I had made a custom MRS to fit on the Creech whirlpool - this eliminates the Cherry switch on the bowl to allow for a contactless motion in the whirpool (i.e. more spins!)....so I'm back to making a new batch of common MRS' (not to be confused with the custom Creech one) in the event someone with an RFM needs one!

The more you know...

That's a reference picture for the uninitiated. That being said, I am definitely interested in getting a backup set of these.

Also, the insert appears to be the star type:

Quoted from Sonic:

Just cleaning up the work station - thought I'd snap a pic...an original WMS MRS, an original DE MRS and an original M&M Creations MRS.......more to built again soon, I promise...[quoted image]

Any update on when the MRS reproduction will begin? I had no issue with mine until today - diverter would not trigger for about 15 games, then it is all back to normal. I am assuming this is because at least one of the MRS is on its way out (diverter triggers just fine in settings menu).
