It's possible that when the trough eject is stacking balls causing two to be in the trough but not counted. Of course, under testing conditions you won't run into this since you're not letting the game eject from the trough. This seems unlikely if it's truly always only after two ball locks.

When it drains, does it immediately go into EOB bonus THEN ball search or does it not recognize that you've drained and trigger ball search before the EOB?

Stern of The Union Update for this month:
Batman ’66 – Another great update was released last month and we are working towards another update later this month!

Wonder what's coming......

Seems like we get less and less info with each SOTU update. And, I'll bet "later this month" is more likely to mean the 24th or the 31st.

But the recent waits have been much easier to deal with than the early ones. And we know we're going to see something awesome ...

Quoted from LouMatt:

Latest code installed on the game?

0.90 current version

#9805 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

I'd still check the all three switches in the left lock lane. If they're intermittent (arm not down enough to stay in constant contact) you can get the behavior you're describing.

Ok, will do that, thanks.

When it drains, machine still thinks that the ball is somehow in play (so does not go in EOB bonus) and starts searching......

Quoted from drummerboy71:

It does sound like a switch issue. It could be in the ball lock or the trough. Make sure you check the operation of the switches with a pinball, not your fingers. Good Luck!

If you do the ball trough clear in the diagnostics are all switches reliably reporting the balls in the trough as they cycle through?

I locked two balls, third was thrown in shooter lane, then I started an active switch test..... all balls were detected (shooter lane, ballthrough 1,2,3 and lock 1,2)

The magnet for the batphone lock on to my ball and does not release.

The pin goes into ball search and I have to nudge the machine almost to the point of tilt for it to release.

Any advice????

If you can nudge it off, it's not the magnet staying activated. It is probably magnetized balls.

I have the opposite problem...magnet does almost nothing when answering the phone. Grabs the ball maybe 1 out of 20. It is very active throwing the ball around during multiball, so it's a real head scratcher.

Thanks for the info! I will be replacing my balls! Thanks again.

Did you replace the balls? Sounds like you have balls in it that are magnetized now.

I have never replaced them. I put the stock stern Balls that were provided in.

I will swap the balls with one of my other pins tonight and order some new one also. Thx

So I finally got around to doing my playfield swap! My LE is now complete with signed playfield 0D65BB10-B2FF-4A47-9C7D-C341B4439394 (resized).jpeg

Do you also happen to have the sewer / Mylar protector installed? If it’s not level the ball will sit there until the ball is nudged or goes into ball search.

Just FYI, I had this problem and it was the coil staying on due to a component failure of my node board. I needed a new one, and a new magnet coil, since it fried it staying on.

I just wanted to post that tonight our daughter and son-in-law came by and we spent the evening drinking wine and playing our new BM66 Premium. What a fun game! We had a great time playing and laughing - and isn't that why we are all in pinball? I love this game!

No sticker but I will order it soon. It looks good.

Hey, be careful not to get a DUI driving that Batmobile! Lol. Fun times, always a favorite when friends come over granted most are around our age so the theme has meaning. More so than Hobbit anyway. Congrats and don’t spill that wine pounding the joker!

Yeah tell me about it, it has been a frustrating and exhausting 6 months but finally for the first time in months I got the chance to have a little pinball time

#9825 1 year ago

Does anyone know how to turn off the "start the game using the lockdown button" that was added in the latest code? Am I overlooking it in settings?

Likely your balls are magnetized. Replace balls

#9827 1 year ago
Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

Agreed. I had the same issue, new balls and problem gone. My guess is the balls Stern provides are just enough quality to roll.

#9828 1 year ago

Just did my playfield swap yesterday, anyone with a magnet like the one in my new playfield??

Woah, it’s just one huge magnet. Let us know if it grabs the ball better?

#9830 1 year ago

That certainly looks different.

Quoted from J85M:

Wow...I unboxed mine at MGC three weeks ago and it is not like that. Interesting. If that's all magnet core, it kind of defeats the purpose of the new design.

Throws the ball all over the place! Just wondering if anyone else has one like it?

What about when u answer the phones? Does it reliably grab it?

#9834 1 year ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Yeah grabbed it stationary and then flung it 90% of the time. Was throwing the ball around during multiball too.

Sounds like maybe an improvement. Interesting!

Someone in the US going to ask Stern for one?

I have emailed Pat at Stern to see what the deal with it is, as no one else seems to have one like it on BM66 or any other magnet based game TWD, AS etc

Weird

Was thinking of ordering one through my distro, but he won’t have any idea what I’m talking about. Let us know what you find out.

Here's mine, looks like yours. Game was built on January 31 2018

No, yours still has a core in the middle surrounded by metal (2 parts). His is a complete single metal disc.

Quoted from AUKraut:

Sitting here, keep pushing the reload button on the shipping company's tracking webpage every 15 minutes or so, waiting for the truck from Chicago to show up here, carrying my BM66....

Delivery scheduled for tomorrow, estimated 2-5 days turned into 9. Been sitting at the local warehouse since Tuesday, and I haven't had the time to get away from work and get it myself.

My Premium was built February 02, 2018 and it has the two piece magnet. Works great.

wow what a game, the best game I’ve had on this game hands down.

My BM66 premium shipped with slightly magnetized balls. Replacing balls completely fixed issue.

Hey! Our machines have the same birthday! Hope they didn't get mixed up in the delivery room.

Thanks Walmart for my soon to be DIY Batmobile ($19) Topper. Now, how do I attach the helicopter ($8) inside the pin?
