MMR Support [MMR Members Only] / Dragon Mod
« on: October 30, 2016, 02:57:55 PM »
Hi Lloyd
Please advise if installing the 2 headed dragon mod outlined below would:
1. void the warranty
2. potentially overload the circuity and cause problems... Would it only be anticipated to cause issues during extended gameplay... E.g. After several hours or more?

MMR Support [MMR Members Only] / Ball stuck behind Castle
« on: August 27, 2016, 06:33:03 PM »
Hi Lloyd,
Appreciate your assistance on this matter.  I have heard nothing back from the Engineering dept @ CGC after you passed along my ticket 5 weeks ago.  The game is unplayable as the ball gets tightly wedged at least once per game, requiring glass removal.  I believe the frequency of sticking has increased since new as I now advance much deeper in the game.  So I have a few questions:
I have not lifted up the playfield at this point to attempt any maintenance. 

Issue: ball gets wedged between the 2 walls at the raised metal bracket during a weak Joust shot.  Hard shots squeeze through.

Proposed Solution:
I believe the correct fix is to remove the metal bracket, bend it back at the base a few degrees, reinstall it, and finally bend the lower wall that wraps around it to fit snuggly back around it.  Bending the lower wall must be done in such a manner so as to not create a flat "resting spot" for the ball.  Bending the top/outer wall is not an option as it would negatively impact the smooth trajectory of fast Joust shots.

1. The metal bracket in the attached photo has 2 screws with nuts on the underside of the playfield.  Is it possible to reach both screws with a long handled screw driver without removing the Peasant ramp?  Access to one screw looks feasible but not sure about the other one...

2. If the second screw above is not reachable, how much of the playfield must be removed to access it?

3. Thoughts on this solution... Any better ideas?

I have cleaned behind the impacted area but not waxed it as the area is hard to reach and removing the wax would be difficult.  There appears to be nothing on either the playfield or walls...

MMR Support [MMR Members Only] / Fine playfield scratches
« on: November 25, 2015, 10:52:36 PM »
Had my MMRLE professionally installed.  One of the installers fixed a couple minor problems with the metal ramp protectors.  The game was boxed until delivered, and was not unboxed prior to delivery.  I did not inspect the playfield closely at time of delivery.  After finally getting a chance to play it a few days later a few playfield scratches caught my eye once I turned it off.  I removed the glass and upon closer inspection noticed fine scratches covering the majority of the playfield, except the orange area Near the bottom.  These scratches are very visible when viewed from certain angles, even with the glass installed.  I inspected the balls for a second time and did not notice any imperfections either visually or to the touch.  Total gameplay is less than an hour.  I have since applied two coats of polish from a local distributor that I have used with great success on my STLE and it has partially masked some of the scratches.  I can't believe this is normal.  My only other NIB to compare is STLE and that playfield is mint with virtually no scratches when viewed from any angle even with the glass removed.  Is there possibly a clearcoat issue?  I reported this a few days ago to my distributor.

MMR Support [MMR Members Only] / Drawbridge not fully closing
« on: November 20, 2015, 01:37:13 PM »
Hi Lloyd
The drawbridge opens fine but does not fully close.  There is a gap of about one inch... The playfield is level.  If you elevate the playfield then it closes in test mode.  Tried adjusting the switch to no avail.
