Thanks Rick.


Last question regarding the trim: you announced a possible red option for the LE. This is great !
Could we have the option (with extra fee) to have a colored trim/legs on a standard edition ?

The only 'red' that I think would be done is that I order red trim and it's available as an aftermarket purchase and customers could switch that.


Options on games are super great for customers, but super difficult for manufacturers - the more options the more headaches which we have seen translates to unhappy customers (waiting longer for a game with 'their' trim color, accidentally shipping the wrong color game, having to keep track of all that, etc).

There was talk of a discount/incentive for MMRLE purchasers. Is that still in the cards and if so what would be the $/incentive?


Thanks,

Does AFMr use the same beaglebone black that MMr does? There appears to be an extra board in the backbox, what does it do?

that extra board is a single power driver board vs 3 for the MMR.

Would the extra large screen work in theory in a MMR?  If so are there plans to issue it as a mod?

in theory it will work, but requires some small tweaks to the software, and possibly small tweaks to the hardware (cabling, etc).


Our intent is to provide this as an upgrade for MMR, we just have not yet done work on it as the priority is AFMR

I'll believe you'll see information and pricing on Friday 3/24/17 with the opening of Texas Pinball Festival.

Couple quick questions. What are the dimensions of the games? Don't have a lot of headroom in the basement so a game with a topper may not fit.


And, will the upgrades from the LE be available for purchase or installed as an option on the SE? IOW, can the mini saucer lighting installed as an option on a SE? Would there be an issue with the leds being driven properly if retro fit?

Bump.  I'd be interested to hear if this is true.

Quick Q: Do you know the ROM version or equivalent version that's being used? 1.13b is the one that supports variable SOL awards in tournament mode rather than 50 million each time. 1.1 awards 50 million each time as far as I know.


Bump. /\ This seems like a really easy and straightforward question to answer.

I believe it would be the standard 1.13 code base of AFM. That being said, other rom versions could theoretically be supported after some testing by CGC.
