I was surprised to see that there was not a thread for RFM, and with it being such a cool game, and with tons of history, mods, and various questions and such floating around, I thought it would be nice for there to there to be a thread for us to checkout and collaborate and such.

p2k is phenomenal in every sense. Still is the most innovative step in pinball since the ramp was introduced. Love it, and love what it could have been. Possibilities are endless. SHame it didn't get it's true test.

Well said; I couldn't agree more!

I have wanted a RFM for a while, and got mine today. I am so happy with it!

This is a kick ass pin. Always a favorite when I have people over. There is also a fan club already started for RFM. It was hidden in the weeds:

There is a lot of good info on it

Whoops...I didn't mean to duplicate! I did look through and didn't see any thing that mentioned it was a club in the title, so I thought there was nothing. Even reading the title now, I would have still not have assumed it was strictly an owners/fan club.
Again, sorry all for the duplicate!

No worries, this thread may be even better with the topic title that pops out for folks looking. The Hillary one does have great intel in it though that answered a lot of my questions that I had when I first picked up RFM.

Hi guys, I have had my Rfm for about 6 months and have had great fun, the kids favourite is the Martian bar, but sadly while I was playing the game it suddenly turned off and started to reboot on its own, but would only go as far as validating screen. The game won't boot up past that, pc and fan are running. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I bought mine last year. It took a while to get it working, and now I am finally starting the shop. I REALLY wish that all pins were built like this. It is just really well made, and the engineers actually tried to make it easy to work on. To remove the left ramp, you unplug 3 sets of wires, remove two screws, and remove 2 nuts. The whole thing pops right out. I love it!

Wow, this is a dusty old club. Figured I’d post this here because it applies to this game too.

I use a “bent plastic” dmd glare guard on my Star Wars Episode 1 to eliminate the translite glare from the playfield glass.

that's odd, I've never had an issue with glare from the translite obscuring the glass on my RFM

I am 6’4” and I see a little bit of translite glare on my glass. Glare may vary by player height, but SWE1 is one game you don’t want to see a tiny bit of glare.

I just played a game of my Star Wars and here's a pic with the glare guard off and then on. I would have to be maybe 6'6" at least to not see the translite reflection on the playfield.

Well, that makes sense. Seemed like this club should have way more activity even for a 21 year old game.

Duplicate post commencing in that thread.

Hi guys,
I need some buying advice, Im thinking about buying rfm, but the monitor isn't that bright and the lady said it was maybe time to change the monitor. Is there a way I could save the monitor, things I should check first, and is there a replacement monitor? I heard something about LCD, what is the cost of an LCD monitor, and is it easy to install?
Regards,

On my Revenge from Mars, all the lamps in one matrix column go out intermittently, and when I touch the wire connector to the lamp board, they start working again. The diagnostic says the column lights are "open" when they are off but supposed to be on. Does this mean the wire have a ground problem somewhere in the machine or is the connector bad? I've already ordered a new connector. I have a video of the sparking if that

Thank you!
