Attack From Mars Remake (AFMR) / Re: Right Slingshot arm contacting PF
« on: November 25, 2017, 05:40:30 PM »
Ok thanks for the clarification Lloyd. A locknut that will fit in the coil sleeve just a tad loosely side to side when dropped sitting flat. I forgot they are completely vertical and not horizontal which is why this will work fine. Don't try this on horizontal coils lol. I'm teasin Lloyd. Thanks again., R

Thanks for the advice Lloyd. So I take it the plunger is short and needs lengthen to decrease travel by the slingshot via the arm assy? I'll do your method but why is it happening? Is something a miss? When I put the locknut it will be in the sleeve end? It's been a while since I ripped one apart.

Just received the game and was checking everything out and running a few tests. Then I noticed a start to the right slingshot touching the playfield at full extension. The left stops about 1/8 to 3/16 before playfield. This was done with me physically moving the solenoid and slingshot arm. Lloyd anyone else? I haven't even played the game yet, but it is indeed a beautiful sight to see. I'm hoping just a boo boo. Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was great and thankful for all we receive.

Question for Rick, do you have an email for other questions not related to this subject/thread of interest? Thanks, R

Rick, sorry to hear that. Was the leak internal? Some of us want nothing more than to hear the news and get the product you want to deliver on your terms along with the quality and service you want to deliver.


Happy New Years everyone. I knew the post before last would awaken the PPS God and let us know some sort of status. Thanks Rick and Company. Glad you folks are trying to iron out any and all last minute wrinkles that you may or have experienced with MMRLE/Standards coming to reality and out the door as smooth as possible. Cheers!!!!!

I think they all go in one unique place and shouldn't be overlapped. Just wait a bit and we should get more info. It is a bichin game that was reproduced to today's updated standards with cool additions added on.

Surfajl77, you don't think they are doubled up because the inserts that are above are the worst with the ink or transparency problem do you? Just a thought, R

Bobsolete, I have a ticket in with my distributor. It is very difficult if not to the point of glass breakage. I asked if they can take a 1/16 or 1/8th off the front lip of a replacement speaker panel and send it to me and I would do the swap. I haven't heard back yet or send me a panel and I will do the work. I don't want to take mine out of commission for a period of time just to get this rectified. I'll let ya know what happens. Hopefully soon.

Scott M, thanks for trying without the top trim piece and letting me know. I truly appreciate the original Translite as well for its beauty. Enjoy the game as I am after waiting for a long long time. Again many many thanks to Rick and to Lloyd for manning the rear guns. I don't think they are receiving nearly enough credit or appreciation in how this beautiful remake and endeavor came out and especially the bumps that weren't or beyond their control.

ScottM, try not putting the top trim piece and let me know what's up. I'm guessing it will work much better. I thought of it after I put the 3D Translite on and got it finally in.

Anyone else having the problem of removing or reinstalling their backglass/Translite where it is tight as hell and I have to start from the right and work my way left? Now with the 3D Translite and original trim its even a tighter b__ch! Almost to the point your afraid you'll break the glass. I'm thinkin of removing the top trim just to get enough clearance. Any other ideas? Also the speaker panel is fully seated and bottomed out. #793 in the house and "luvin every minute of it" except this nagging pain. Also installed a 9 pin molex between Translite and main backbox board wiring harness to eliminate removing the connector to the main board. I believe the original MM had this as well.

Hello fellow pinballers,

is it possible the ramp is defective in a way that the bottom edges of the ramp are warped thus the ramp flap sits cocked or higher on one side or that the flap isn't riveted completely flat? I heard of a ramp having been defective before or something of the sort that may or may not be related to this problem. Is it possible to shim the lower side of the flap so when the flap is tightened down both sides end up being level without stripping the screws holding the flap? The playfield is perfectly flat correct? I couldn't imagine that being the problem period no way in hell. I've seen plastics and lexan wanting to bend and warp with changes in ambient room temperatures on arcade game control panels that I constructed  and protected them with lexan so it wouldn't ruin the graphics that were applied underneath. I still suspect a rare flaw with the ramp as long as the ramp isn't being torqued anywhere else on its form causing this issue.

Thanks for the reply Boxed beef. It was very informative about your malformed ramp. I hope that was a freak one in a million accident/mess up that no one else has to encounter, Rich

BoxedBeef, what was wrong with your ramp that it needed replacing since most if not all the time the  wire form just needed moved and tightened down?
