Got my first billion on .84 tonight. All the way through Penguin with 'to the batcave' bump added. Bat Turn once, Mr Freeze once (didn't complete) and Egghead once (didn't complete).

Such a fun game.

I thought I had the most current code but I am only running .83 is it worth updating?

SWEET!!!! I finally broke 1 billion 2 days before the last code drop.......this game is too fun!!!

Ok just did some reading and now it makes sense as to why I couldn’t figure how to get the channel changing mode to work, I will be updating to .84 ASAP.. thanks guys

EVERY update is worth installing!

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Bat signal topper mod installed (very cool)

Does the bat signal topper come on at certain times in the game or is it just always on? Was considering the Stern one, but it’s not cheap.

#7559 4 years ago
Quoted from spandol:

It is on during attract mode, parachute pickup mode and when the Batphone is ringing.

That sounds cool. Thanks for the info! Was considering for my premium that’s coming.

The game control signal is only available with the LE/SLE (uses the the boards that run the topper) (if I remember correctly).

But it's still a great mod to have for a Premium (Doc's mod)

Forget the Stern Bat signal and buy docquest's Bat signal mod. Better quality for a lot less!

My cabinet corners look perfect so I figured I would be proactive and reinforce them with the upgraded brackets.

Is there a consensus on the best joker target fix? Mine started getting stuck again.

Edit: Dead foam centered on the bracket behind the target where its getting stuck works like a charm so far! All this non work free time is killing me

Time for Santa suit and a little Egg nog. Merry xmas!!!

Very nice....I've been guilted enough....mine are perfect too, but adding the heavy brackets next week, to be safe....

#7569 4 years ago

Merry West-mas, old chums.

Where are you guys buying the brackets from?

Pinball Life has them.

I need to do this too. Did you do all 4 or just the front 2?

#7573 4 years ago

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays good citizens!

At this point just the front two corners, I heard the rear corners have never been an issue.. if anyone has heard differently let me know as I will upgrade those brackets as well.

Never heard of the back splitting, but seems logical to change all 4.

Quoted from kidchrisso:

PBL for the main brackets and Home Depot carries the smaller brackets and the screws. I predrilled the holes to the appropriate undersize and then used some wood glue on the threads.

Im going to pass on the smaller ones.....not sure they are needed (?)

#7578 4 years ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

They may be overkill, I saw people had been using them in another thread on the subject. If I do the rear corners I will just do the main brackets as the cab is stronger in the back to start with.

Santa was good to me this year!! Hoping I also get that BM66 LE that I’m looking for in 2018 sometime...

Did you use the Williams ones or the DE/Stern ones? They sell both kinds, the DE/SEGA/Stern ones are a little shorter than the Williams.

#7581 4 years ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

The splitting seems to start at the top, not so reinforcement near the top is probably a good idea.

#7582 4 years ago

A question: is it better going to MB during super villain mode before hitting super jackpot?

Another question: I did not understand yet how to play the others villains mode.

Thanks

Can anyone tell me where to get that cool speaker light kit with the bat symbold?

Sold by yelobird/The Mod Couple.

#7587 4 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

I really like the looks of this kit!

Probably my all time favourite mod, pictures don't do it justice, just pops and looks awesome on the game

#7588 4 years ago

Sold.

#7589 4 years ago
Quoted from jfh:

If anyone is interested in a speaker mod kit, I have an unused/uninstalled one I have decided not to use on my LE that I will sell at a discount. Also a new yelobird phone mod. PM if interested.

Pm sent

#7590 4 years ago

I like this game.
Fun and play again factor.
This new code 0.84 is a great improvement in my opinion. I hope Lyman will keep his momentum going!

Board fix kits must be done. Just got a shipping notification from Stern.

#7593 4 years ago

I know a couple of people here were having issues with the crane sensitivity. In my case, the crane was not registering hits on the 3 left-most positions. Turns out there was a split cable to the metal cage housing the pendulum (pictured below). The crane movement and the tight cable-ties were pinching it. Had to split it, strip it and twist it back together. Crane now registers every hit!

Good detective work!

I've never received a shipping notification from Stern for anything that they owed me.

Just got my notification as well....did hot glue for the vibration, however. Will definitely insert the cap.

Changing all my ethernet cables to Ortronics CAT6 certified at the same time. Doesn't cure a potential jack problem, but cabling will now be a non issue......

#7597 4 years ago

Ok. I’ve been slacking on keeping up here. What’s going on with sterns most expensive pin ever that I need to be worried about? Do I need to contact them for a potential fix?

Thanks.

So after a few months, Stern finally came through and sent me a replacement batlight free of charge, (original one was scratched badly) and it's perfect! Cheers Stern.
