Quoted from iceman44:

It came on my pin. No rattle in the ramp either.

Can you take a pic of it?

Thanks.

#1753 3 years ago

Dimpling done right.

Let's get that kit on the way. Looks like it comes with a spring too.

Edit- I like the factory ramp guard...so far.

#1756 3 years ago

Spring

Is that all from Stern?

Edit: just saw the stern instructions for the ramp kit at the bottom of the box. Be making some enquiries tomorrow.

Tape measure & dog sold separately

#1759 3 years ago

If anybody that is installing the new ramp guard doesn't need the original, pm me, as I may end up needing a spare or two.

How many batman pins did you buy?

#1761 3 years ago

Anyone got any idea how much a top wireform would cost to enclose the ramp? If I stick with my LE order I'd rather go for a complete wireform for the top of the ramp than a plastic, this is a 10k pin after all

#1762 3 years ago

We had time to install some BM mods last night and the new style pf protector. It looks like 10 coats of clear have been added. I think the pin plays much faster with the new PET-G pf protector. Took about 3 hours to install.

Batcopter and Batgirl mods next week!

What...have you done...to Indy 500?

Such a shame.

Quoted from dmbjunky:

Opps....I added this pic my mistake.

Anyway, Indy500 is a retheme into Disney Cars2. And I have a HS2 rethemed into Disney Cars1.

Hank thanks for your photos and info, just what I was looking for

#1773 3 years ago

I still have some ramp flyoffs every now and then. Ball is going so fast it just hops the rail. Doesn't seem like anything different, no spacers underneath back of ramp. Did have a big game though.

Great score iceman44 , this code has definintely helped scoring. Loving the pin, and my son doesn't play too much but also loves this one.

Did anyone else notice the little Batman trophy next to the grand champion high score seems to have disappeared with the latest code?

The trophy appears when any player in the previous game makes the HS table. It's still there.

That high score in the newspaper headline looks really cool A+ on that.

Will respond to PM's in just a bit.
Sorry, got busy

#1780 3 years ago

Pin mod update prep for TPF:

Added Car Bra wrap on batman66 SLE lockdown bar, to protect pinstriping. Taking to Texas Pinball Festival in a few weeks.

Looks great.
Feels great.

Had flash on. Might be some reflections.

Can't tell it's there & it is self healing when scratches, rings, bumps happen.

#1782 3 years ago

Looks not good on pic but the batcopter is suspended with a red blinking led on tail. I will also paint with urethane the bar that hold it with same color as the rails

hope we get another software update before TPF (march 23-26).... hint...hint...

#1784 3 years ago

Hoping for another software update next week!

I'm not a flow junkie but this pin is really awesome.

#1785 3 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

This pin is so much fun and addicting. Quite honestly I'm surprised.
.65 to .69 is a world of difference. Lyman is simply the best!!! So much nuance at such an early stage.

BM66

Quoted from iceman44:

I was thinking the same thing. But I'm sure they have so many more show clips to drop in there.
Initially, honestly, I was thinking Uh Oh, just not enough there layout wise but holy cow wow factor, I'm seeing what this pin can really be ala TWD, but even so much better.
TWDLE was a pin that was just brutal and not a whole lot of fun to just flip but had so much potential because the layout was unique. It was hard and took a LONG time to master.
BM66LE is just great FUN to flip, much like GBLE and I didn't think it would be from day one because of the layout.
Now its like its just simple genius with a whole lot of nuance and potential?
Theme and immersion.

Do what you have to do man to protect her, I think it's awesome your taking your SLE for others to play, have it in a dust free booth if you need to

I'm sure everyone will appreciate you bringing it in the first place, even if you make them wear white overalls, dust mask and gloves

That actually looks pretty clever. Might get one just to try it out.

labnip should get one to put over the top of his PF protector.
