Is the first pic the fine detail cats?

#15252 1 year ago
Quoted from thundergod76:

If you go under switch alerts does your display look like the symbol I have circled in the pic below? If it does that means switch #77 (the right joker target) is "out of service". You can actually disable and enable that switch in the service menu. It must be "in service" or that target wont register.
[quoted image]

well, no luck

any combination of turning on/off target 1 and 2 d oes not ever make target #2 register.

#15253 1 year ago

Yes I will do pic of them side by side. Working on to see if I can light eyes

Wow these look very interesting!!! What are the brackets made out of? I'm concerned about mounting the light board to a metal bracket.

#15256 1 year ago

tronguy If you can make a cable to plug into CN12 you could test the inputs to verify its a Node 10 problem or target problem.

Brackets versatile plastic 3D print by shapeway with decal same thickness as original plastic

#15258 1 year ago

Definitely interested in a fine detail set with brackets. Hopefully they aren't too big. I dont want them to be the first thing you notice when walking up to the machine.

Looks awesome, been toying with this idea myself!! Count me in, more than likely the fine detailed ones with brackets.

Anyone interested in a Flipper Fidelity Animated Back Box LED Panel for their CATWOMAN edition? I have a brand new one for $100 shipped (normally $140 + Shipping)

Comes with new, original, mounting hardware / wiring harness / instructions (it's 100% plug and play and non-destructive install) Also has remote so you can change speed and brightness.

Here are a couple of vids of the panel in action:

I have the Premium, to bad or I wold jump on this deal.

What s the difference between Stern , Rock Custom and FF interactive back-light??

They are all about the same price.

Thanks for the help.

Looks like a node board problem.
They are sending me a replacement. I am going to have to go look and see what repkaci g that entails. I imagine its not fun.

Well on the bright side, after paying for this game 8 months ago, Albeit with a new trench dug into my play field, art near the penguin scoop missing, oh and $2000 in mods, I may actually get to play a game on here soon.

This whole thing sucks. I've owned two and the first one needed some adjusting on the turntable, but nothing like this. I accidentally blew out a node board in that process and they replaced it (Chas is the best). My second BM66 has been problem free, from the last run of the signed Adam West cards. You have had so many issues with this, I think a replacement machine or populated playfield would be completely reasonable.

Maybe its $1500? I don't care to relive the absolute waste of money into a machine that I haven’t been able to play properly yet.

Yeah so it must have been shipped with the bad node board since it hasn't worked since day 1.

I cant really speak to the other brands as Flipper Fidelity is all I have ever used. I don't recall how I got turned onto them in the past but quality and customer service is excellent so I never had a reason to look elsewhere.

Stern has one but no pictures. The other as a newbie just cant tell. Was hoping a few folks would be able to tell me the differences. If not I will just go with the FF as I need 2 .

Have a great night.

Man, time to get Gary Stern on the line! That’s beyond ridiculous. It really is a great game, hope you get this resolved soon.

#15278 1 year ago

I’ve voiced my opinion and I’ll say it again...

You should definitely push for at least a new populated playfield, if not an entire new replacement machine. Even if you get it working properly, you are still left with a gouge in the playfield from the ball lock gate that wasn’t tightened properly from the factory along with other playfield quality issues. Enough is enough with your current machine. Good luck and keep us posted!

Indeed it is not. My node board #10 blew out a week after I got my machine last April (one of the Adam West 50). My distributor and Stern were great about getting me a replacement. It is a task to get the board out and a new one in, but considering the experience you have gained through all of your other repairs, you should be able to get through it with some patience.

Also, very important!! Make certain that the DIP switch is placed in the correct configuration BEFORE you install the new node board!!

Good luck, and please continue to keep us posted with this.

Being the ramps are catwomen shots, folks have ordered leopard print laminated decal sheets, cut them to the ramps shape and installed them. I ordered a sheet as well just didn't get around to installing it as of yet.

well another week and a half and nothing. I email these guys at stern(multiple times), no response. Finally after calling 3 times and sitting on hold for awhile I get through today. Chas says the node board hasn't shipped yet. He had previously told me it could ship thursday, Jan 2.

It is going to be a very very bad day for one of these guys at Cax, or golden state pinball festival, if this isn't handled by then.

a very fucking bad day

Burt’s Star will be the 2,683rd Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Category of Television and will be appropriately located next to that of Adam West!

Congrats, Boy Wonder!

Ok I received the node board for the spinning play field today.

I decided to NOT change it yet and go with my theory of cutting wires, and soldering other wires.

So I clipped wire in position 3 of CN12. Then I ran a jumper between the 2 joker targets. Works perfect. I do get a

JOKER TARGET 1 operator alert if I go into test mode, but who cares. Having that node board on hand gave me a feeling of "back up" if needed. I may still go in and change it , and rewire it properly, but I'm not in a hurry to do that.

Today is the first day since I bought the game in May (received it in June IIRC), that the game has worked properly. Probably gonna sell it now. I'm sick of Stern and don't think I will ever put another quarter in a stern game, let alone buy another one.

I don’t blame you, hope you get a decent amount or maybe trading it you would do better

That's it. Thanks so much.

I am unboxing stuff and just opened my new lighted frame . It's unreal and amazing. Here are 2 pictures. One is the Stern and one is from midcoastsurf.

You guys decide which one you like better.

I need to find a new translite to trade or buy with someone . I dont need both the same. One came with the trade.

If anyone has something different and needs one of mine let me know.

Thanks Guys.

I glued and cleared the chip that fell off. Luckily the ball can’t physically roll over this spot so it should be fine. I played 20
Games on it and no issues. I think this is my last NiB from stern.

Traded games that I had on route years for a game that'll earn well in the future. For now it's in my garage to enjoy!

Already put titan glow in the dark post rings and classic clear pinball rings on the slingshots and a few other places.
