    Default WARNING Lady Gaga cell swapping on the Fortune frame modification needed

    I just wanted to warn anybody who wants to put a Lady Gaga cell in a non-Lady Gaga specific Fortuna frame you will need to slightly modify the cell (cut off a tiny plastic cube-like protuberance from the cell) or else you risk cracking your inner glass when you close the frame!

    I recently got a Macross Frontier 2 machine which I swapped Lady Gaga into; I noticed it took a bit more force than usual to close the machine... big mistake. Hours later while playing it finally noticed a crack in the glass; originating from the contact point of the little plastic cube thing. Neither the Macross cell nor a Bunny & Bunny cell I also recently purchased have this plastic cube either. So I promptly sawed it off with my trusty coping saw. Now it fits perfect and can close the door of the machine nice and easy!

    Guess Iíll need to get a new piece of glass cut; for now still playing with the crack.

    Pics of said plastic thing to be removed:

    Good call. I was thinking about getting a Gaga cel. Especially as I enjoy the music of Queen
