Quoted from AdeptJR:

I purchased the MOD Couple speaker set a few days back. Do they acknowledge the order and give updates on shipping? I sent a couple emails over the past few days and not a single response, is this commen with them?

I’m in Canada, never had updates about shipping either and everything always arrives perfect and on time....

Awesome idea! are they unique on every machine?
Got my B66 yesterday evening

it‘s a lot of fun but i‘m quite overwhelmed by the rules, gotta do a lot of reading. Anyone knows a good rulesheet besides the tiltforums thread?

Cheers

Welcome to the club guys and congrates on your Premiums.

Quoted from Ben1981:

it‘s a lot of fun but i‘m quite overwhelmed by the rules, gotta do a lot of reading.

Yeah Lyman has packed this thing with rules and tricks like the channel swapping that make this game pretty deep and unique, plus he’s a long way from finished so it’s only going to get better and probably a whole lot deeper.

Lyman’s complete rule guide was recently spotted on a Stern factory tour

Is there a way to reset the factor / default high scores completely, so lower scores can get listed in the top 4?

#10016 2 years ago
Quoted from AdeptJR:

You can do that - but imo would be a tad lame. You gotta have a goal to aim for!

Get a few multiballs running with a mode - you’ll beat those scores in no time.

rd

#10017 2 years ago

Some scores can never be beaten I think (like the king tuts, bookworm)... will most probably be resolved in a future update (defaults changed).

The default high scores 1 - 4 are easy but yes you can lower most of he high score settings and then do a high score reset.

#10018 2 years ago

Advanced apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere....

So, I'm selling off a few of my pins to buy a NIB Batman 66. I'd like to find an LE, but I see that they've sold out.

Is the Premium that much of a lesser machine? I see the chart of differences, but are the added features that important?

Thanks in advance.

#10019 2 years ago

They are all cosmetic. Game is exactly the same.

Playfield and gameplay is identical on all three machines.

Has anyone had any luck adjusting the Batcave spinner disk to be more level with the main turntable? Mine is perfect along the front edge, yet a slow roller will often get caught on the backedge of the spinner disk and won't free itself up until a ball search. Looked at the assembly underneath and there doesn't seem to be any adjustment points that jump out at you.....

#10031 2 years ago

That one is for the whole turntable, I'm looking for info on the batcave spinner subassembly and how it sits with respect to the turntable....

Quoted from AUKraut:

I don't think there ever was a definitive good way to deal with this one. Having the pin pitched steeper seemed to help lessen the hangups. I know when I had the whole Atomic pile torn down to install the awesome mod collection from ModCouple I played around with the ball gate that's in the center a little. Not much you can do overall. I still get occasional hangups on a softer hit ball. The batcave spinner itself (floor) has a fair amount of slop where you can rock it back and forth. I thought about maybe putting a piece of mylar down on the edge more inside the Atomic Pile in hopes it would create a flatter surface on both sides. If I take the cave spinner posts out sometime, maybe I'll try.

Thanks, that's about what I gathered from my own inspection and prodding around. Good news is it does clear with a ball search, but still........would love to hear about if others have figure it out!

Yes we had a minor family unplanned event but I did get back to #AdeptJR via PM. We do apologize for having to delay some shipments which we Really hate letting anyone down. We are back on track and all caught back up!

By the way the website is great, simple yet informative and super easy to navigate, nicely done!

Neil.

The biggest issue I found with the plastic protectors is the color. Most are yellow. When installed and lit they turn everything green which I didn't like. I ended up leaving the yellow ones on the in and out lanes and put red on the slings. Even though they turn the slings purple when lit it looks much better. Clear is the only way to go if you want to keep the original colors. Too bad someone can't make clear ones with only the edges yellow.

Thank you Sincerely for your order. Batman 66 is by far one of our favorite games even with a fairly decent collection over the years. Hopefully a new code update hits before the graphs start to flow again..... lol

#10043 2 years ago
Quoted from AUKraut:

I ended up putting a dime under its two brackets just to bring the rear of the spinner level and that seemed to fix the problem for me...and it added another $0.20 value to my machine!

Thanks! I never win anything so this was a nice surprise. I don’t yet own a BM66 but have had a wanted ad for an LE for 6 months and have not been able to find one yet. Also have offered up a trade of my IMDN LE for one with no interest. I will get one some day but is going to take much longer than I had hoped. Lucky for me, my buddy has one that I get to play. Just picked up the Atomic Pile mod for his 40th birthday last week.

Hopefully one day I will be able to buy all the Mod Couples BM66 mods to put on my machine!

Thanks again!

We wish you well in your search. A Batman LE is a tough catch these days as the Lyman fever has spread but the search will prove worth it in the end! For now you can hug your Batgirl (don't let anyone see you!) and wait for your LE to arrive! Thanks again to all who PM'd. We owe a Lot to this group for supporting us and the wonderful people/friends we have met along the way. Congrats Ed!
