Quoted from thundergod76:

Finally got around to adding some authentic tv music. Felt compelled to do this in honor of Adam's passing. Stern really cut the length of the attract music in the latest code unfortunately. I'm sure this can be incorporated into other aspects of the game. This was my first go around on BM66

Cool....dumb ( lazy) question which game setting to you have to load to enable attract mode music? Think it was mentioned earlier I think....but a quick point would be appreciated...thanks

How did you do that? I thought pinball broswer didnt work with the latest code releases?

Quoted from iceman44:

You guys that got to meet him at Expo was a great experience

Yep....got the picture. Think it's frame worthy now, on the wall next to the game...we all had no idea he was this close to the end ( I didn't anyway). This pin has now achieved grail ( not just nostalgia) value to me. Won't be leaving until I leave the hobby at some point, and sell them all.....

Quoted from thundergod76:

Your new PRE is looking very spiffy with those mirror blades! I'm holding out to see what Franchi comes up with for Stern. The Stern accessories wait for this machine is getting ridiculous.

Thanks! It averaged about 20 plays per hour. hard to say exactly how many plays it got (bec I updated to .75 on Sun morning) from Fri 5pm thru Sun 3pm, but I'd guess about 450. Despite a show with an amazing new game selection (a handful of AS, two DI, total annihilation, Houdini, AFMr)- there was a line of 2-4 people at basically all times and apparently a really long line on the second half of the day Saturday after Adam West died RIP.

new topic- is pinball browser updated to work with spike 2 now ?!?

I've been assisting Oga with the new version of PB. It took much longer than even he thought it would. He gave me a Beta version to try out. Been browsing all the cool wacky video clips etc. New Spike 2 version should be out very soon.

Thanks. I have a wonderful song in mind to replace the insanely (imo) misplaced cat woman mode music. Slow jazz for a mode with super fast ramps? No thanks!

Thanks I just came to ask the same question, linked the post below for reference but it really needs marking as a KEY post.

I agree. In general I have no complaints at all about the music. I think Stern did a great job. All the villain music is top notch. But there's always room for improvement.

That jazzy riff makes me think of hips swinging back and forth, like hitting the alternating ramps.

Agree to disagree for now!
Be curious how you feel bout mine when I get it in there.

#2763 2 years ago

Anyone in the know heard about the next code up or news on the accessories?

I have the same 2 Pinballs that you have Thundergod76, and I just saw both of your videos and wow man! Amazing! How can I add songs to the Kiss one like you did please?

Thank you

#2765 2 years ago

so to make the attract music play "more" frequently....where do you set Game adjustment #139...higher or lower?

#2766 2 years ago

A bit of a digression but,

I would love to see a book made of all the cards in the batman pinballs. This does not already exist does it? Like this Mars attacks book?

Reason is I am a huge fan of that card art.

You can buy the 3 sets of reissued 1966 batman cards and put them in card collector sleeves in a binder. This way you would have all of the cards in a "book form". Lots of card collectors do this.

Here's a great article on Adam West, mostly detailing his Batman promiscuity. He was the man!!

#2772 2 years ago

Thanks for the help I am a book nut and this getting a set of the cards IS for me. I do hope to end up getting this game someday. But for now, I'll play it on others games, and find those cards thanks!

They just showed boxes and boxes of "Bat Signal Topper Kits" on the Stern live stream.

#2775 2 years ago

Ya, large boxes. So what all is in there I wonder

#2776 2 years ago

Want.

#2777 2 years ago
Quoted from BrewinBombers:

Those boxes look kinda big to just be the bat signal proector thast was on the SLE toppers. I wonder if those are actually premium toppers that also include a bat signal projector.

If so I hope they still plan to offer just the batsignal projector for the LE owners who already have a topper.

It will be a major disappointment if they don't.

Big time.....boxes definitely looked to big for just the beacon....

#2780 2 years ago
Quoted from jfh:

Would seem unfair to offer an upgrade to a premium owners that's not available to LE owners. Unfortunately I wouldn't put it past Stern if it means they sell more toppers.

Quoted from cooked71:

The rumored Premium topper is totally different though since the Premium does not have the boards in the back box to drive the topper like the S/LEs do.

#2782 2 years ago

I think those are probably toppers for premiums....even though it states " batsignal", doesn't necessarily mean there's a beacon on it....we will see....

Yep....hope it looks cool for Premium owners.....I just want the beacon.....

#2784 2 years ago

Kinda odd that these alleged toppers are ready to leave the factory and Stern hasn't given so much as a teaser.

That would require Stern to have someone on staff that understands basic marketing concepts.

I'll check w my distributor ( Mike w Automated) for any insight. He always shoots straight w me, and suspect he will know....

Thanks for sharing. There's a pretty cool documentary as well. It's called Starring Adam West. What a great guy...

I think the factory video on their facebook page was their teaser.

Maybe the premium toppers include the node boards to run them. For other spike games with optional toppers like Kiss, Game of Thrones, or Ghostbusters does the topper come with node boards or did the games have the node boards already in the backbox?

#2789 2 years ago

No real value in this news... but just wanted to say...

Man - I love this theme!

IMG_8982 (resized).JPG

#2790 2 years ago

The theme is very hard to beat for me. So much potential. I'd like to make my own topper. And I dislike toppers.

Batman Adam west style. Hard to beat. They nailed the theme. Now the rest.

#2791 2 years ago

Im anxious to see the toppers for the premiums ( ones shown in the teaser, Id believe). George stated they would be different than the S/LE and offered at a later point.

Anything BM is cool, and hope this one rocks, as well..

My KISS topper came with no extra boards.

#2793 2 years ago

Very nice eulogy for Adam West if you haven't seen it.

#2794 2 years ago

The bendable figures look horrible... still love them

It's also hard to watch a complete show (for me), but getting a quick look on a fight scene on youtube is fun.
Overall... the software is still a very "compact", but nevertheless I am caught by the theme with the first sound, shots are fun und for quick games there's enough on the table.

#2795 2 years ago

Reply to docquest; my GB/PRe topper just plugged right in! No node board was inclosed!

#2796 2 years ago

If you haven't heard them, listen to Wally Wingbert's "Adam West" songs, both the original 1989 version and the 2004 dance mix. I happen to think they make fine tributes to the Bright Knight.

Quoted from thundergod76:

So was there already an existing node board in the backbox that it plugged into?

Or maybe there is a node board built into the topper itself?

I've heard different rumors regarding the premium topper. One was that it was a gotham skyline another was that it had the villains on it Maybe a combination of both?

#2798 2 years ago

It plugged into the CPU node board. The main/standard board in the backbox.

#2799 2 years ago
Quoted from thundergod76:

Ok so i guess they just put the node board inside the topper then. Looking at the batman66 LE topper I'm guessing they put the node board in the back box because they wasnt enough room for it in the topper itself.

#2800 2 years ago

I would like to see some marketing/announcements regarding Batman66 accessories, showing a box on a low res cellphone video, leaving your customers clueless about what it is you have just shown (attempted to tease) is not" marketing, you cannot tease a product when people don't have the slightest clue what the product is or isn't

I say this as I frickin love my BM66LE and would be more than happy to get a few accessories from Stern to trick it out, if you want my money you need to show me something
