any code news ?

#2852 1 year ago

News/info of code may come tomorrow fingers crossed.

#2853 1 year ago

I got this Batman head plunger for my birthday. I've never replaced a plunger before. Can someone offer some instructions/tips on how to do it, or point me to a good vid? Thanks.

I'm guessing June 29/30. Be a nice to have it for the holiday weekend.

That would be the shortest gap between Gomez drops since February. Next Tue/Wed/Thurs the 27th-29th is more likely.

It's easy.

Pull off plunger rubber
Remove circlip with a small screwdriver. Don't let it fly off into oblivion.
Slide off spring
Slide out old rod
Slide in new rod
Slide on spring
Pull spring back and put on circlip
Put rubber back on.
Done.

Cool, thanks. Thought it may be a little more tricky since Batman has the Bat Gadget button shooter as well.

Ummm no? The button isn't attached to the shooter rod.

You know how to remove the lock bar and slide the glass out etc? (Serious question...)

The lock bar button isn't attached to anything (except the lock bar). Just lift it off as per normal, remove the glass, lift the playfield and access the shooter rod from above.

Agree . . . that's probably where my other Batmobile screw that fell off went.

Yes, I do. I meant I wasn't sure if I had to do anything with the auto-shooter that the Gadget button probably just operates.

#2866 1 year ago
Quoted from melumga:

Ahhhhh. Nope, the auto shooter is a seperate assembly to the shooter rod.

If you look in the shooter lane, you can see the two prongs on each side of the shooter rod. This is the auto plunger assembly. This is affixed to the bottom of the playfield ... the shooter rod is in the cabinet.

Hope that's all helpful.

Quoted from J85M:

I'll be asking Stern for this and the ramp fix but I doubt I'll use it, I plan on laser cutting a replacement out of clear or smoked PETG, not a fan of all that red/pink plastic Stern used for the turntable and atomic pile, plan on doing something much more show accurate - silver/grey with red edging if possible and not too much trouble.

i'm in for one of these

#2868 1 year ago

Was playing BM tonight and noticed a typo on the screen. Umbrella was spelt incorrectly as per below

I've played this so many times and never noticed before....

Holy typo Batman!! Good eye! Someone should send this to Stern in hopes of getting it corrected.

Wont be cheap, Gary needs a new Harley

#2876 1 year ago

Is that projector LED?

#2877 1 year ago

Well not quite the announcement I was lead to believe we would be getting, we all knew what the projector did, what does it cost though

#2878 1 year ago

Why aren't these being sold through Stern?

Quoted from Macca101010:

The beacon, the beacon!!! I literally posted on the FB page yesterday, asking for timeline. Calling Mike in the morning.

( think I'll ask about code update tonight......)

#2880 1 year ago

Can anyone recommend a dist. who would carry this stuff? My dist. doesn't deal with accessories.

#2885 1 year ago

What do you guys think is the best villain mode to take in to multiball? I'm thinking Penguin because it's relatively difficult to finish quickly. Had a game where I took Penguin in, had a decent multiball, and ended up with a 500m+ villain bonus once I hit the scoop to capture the villain after multiball.

AFAIK Villain bonus depends on how many of the other villain shots you make before you cash in at the scoop. Some modes it's too easy to accidentally finish during multiball, before you can build up the jackpot. Good thing about Penguin is it's unlikely you'll hit all the crane shots during multiball, but will hit plenty of other villain shots necessary to build up jackpot.

Loving the code so far. Classic Lyman code, and I love the slightly old school, slightly quirky layout. Even the turntable has really grown on me. It's a shame so many have already written this game off, but I guess that doesn't matter to those that already own it. Looking forward to the next update.

Completely agree. And after the initial whining, quite sure many are rethinking it. Doesn't really matter, as you state....LE's and SLE's were long gone early, and doubt many will change hands. Premiums will sell, especially when code is done....great machine...

I sent him an email and he got right back to me. (I like this guy already) He said as far as he knows Stern isn't doing accessories for BM66. Obviously they are. Once again this shows how poor Stern's communications are. They couldn't send a simple email to their distributors?

On the code update;I got it that Mr Lyman has been taken off the B66 for other projects! He will be doing any more code from home in his spare time!! If this is correct,it may be awhile to get to 1.0!! Anyone else hear this????Code .75 is fun!!

WTF

#2890 1 year ago

The premium topper looks cool but it would have been even cooler if the art wasn't a direct copy of the existing playfield art. Looks like its using the fluorescent acrylic stuff? Wonder if it will just randomly light up or will they try and light villains up as their mode starts.

Seems odd that the accessories are not being sold by Stern directly. I guess we'll have to call around to see what the actual price is. Wonder if the price will vary dealer to dealer. If you get a good price please post it here to let others know.

#2891 1 year ago

Agree with Doc. While the topper is cool it seems very repetitive. No way will Stern charge $400-$500 for this. "Or will they"!?

He is a good guy.....I sure he'll call them tomorrow for the scoop. He's well connected, and always follows through...

I generally just yap with him on the phone ( bought 3 games from him)....

#2893 1 year ago

I think I would have been happy with that topper if I hadn't already seen the one for the SLE and LE. I'm glad I found a LE and will be picking up the bat signal whenever I can find a distributor selling them. I've had good experiences with Kurt at Hemispheres Amusements and will be contacting him first.

Don't forgot it needs node boards for premium users, one for the topper and another for the bat projector. Those boards are not cheap.

They only posted it 5 hours ago.....I'm sure dealers will hear in the morning....

Suspect it will just light up via the acrylic, and be static in nature. We've gotten spoiled by some of the interactive ones out there, but generally the exception to the rule. Will still look cool, and I'm sure a fraction of the price that the unobtanium S/LE toppers cost, including the boards. Have a feeling that beacon is not going to be cheap, sadly....

For the anniversary game and all the Gomez promises this can't possibly be true

Patience is one thing but this would be F ing ridiculous

It's possible this next update will be near final and they will call it 1.0 whether it is or not

I'm still going with "In Lyman we trust"
