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


yes

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?


The dimensions are the same as the original AFM (sorry, I'm not around one right now) ... the topper on the game is 85 1/2 inches - the topper is 9.5 inches tall.

What is being done with AFMR LE for existing MMR LE customers is to give them the ability to have the same LE# that they had for MMR LE and prioritize them in line for a game from Chicago Gaming. The stipulation is that a deposit be received by April 15th ... that is new as of this morning and had come from a conference call with all the resellers.

In terms of what options (and when) would be available on different models (topper, saucer kit, etc) - that is still being figured out by CGC.

(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.


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.


Thanks.

The original is 76" high, 29" wide and 55"deep

Don't know if this was covered elsewhere but who are the resellers? Will they all be selling at the same terms or prices? Or is that up to them and us to strike a deal?

CGC should be listing the authorized resellers ... i'm not sure there's alot of negotiating that can be done on price, etc, usually it's about access to games, credibility, past history, service capabilities, support, etc.  If it were about price then I would assume CGC would just cut out all resellers and sell them itself ...

Actually, never mind. We just received the local pricing (single distributor) and its ridiculous. Equivalent of USD8.5K for the classic. I'm out, as are so many others complaining about price gouging on local forum. So sad. :(

Does AFMR LE come pre-equipped with Cliffy (or Cliffy-like) protectors ?
If yes, which area will be protected ?


Thanks

It will be announced that there will likely be a protector on the SOL ... I would think it would be more like a mantis vs cliffy as cliffy's are more to protect and hide existing damage, so in this case, it's better to have a interior liner like mantis which prevents the issue from starting.

I looked at my MMR purchase order, and I noticed the discount for LE buyer on the Invisiglass.
Will you offer the same discount on an invisiglass for AFMR LE buyer ?

PPS has not sold Invisiglass ... but we are looking into A/R glass options.
