(Thanks for moving this thread.)


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.

Will the updated saucer features of the LE/SE (metallic saucer, multi color lighting) be sold separate and be compatible with the classic model?

We will be taking all of your questions and anything I cannot answer I will get the answers from CGC.

Then we will post a FAQ with answers - all of that will be available at the time of annoucement - which is set to be officially Friday Mar 24th 5PM CST.

Why don't they just start with a base unit and you can add click to add the options you want to it?

Want a standard dmd + topper?  Ok, that will be $xxxx + $xxx.

Will the color upgrade to the classic version be similar to MMr? Just install the rom and good to go? Is the color upgrade an option that will be pre-installed on games or will I have to purchase and install separate? Also will the larger LCD be available separate and would it be compatible with MMr?

Hi Rick,


Could you tell us if the side rails will be glued/double-side taped (like original Williams/Bally) or screwed (like Stern) ?
This is good to know if anyone wants to buy an extra set of legs/trims in a different color for future installation. In that case, it would be better if they are screwed and no glue is used.


Thanks

As with MMR, the side rails will be double-side taped (no glue that I'm aware of). I believe as with MMR, the cabinet art ended before the tape, so there is no risk of the tape pulling the cabinet art off. The screw only approach is problemmatic for the middle of the rail, so I think CGC continues with the tried and true method. I think we would all like a decent approach without lots of external screws ... perhaps on game3
