Quoted from docquest:

Looks nice. I think that set was a comicon exclusive a few years ago.

Yeah that's the one Doc, SDCC I believe, they are the same scale as the ones on the SLE. Not 100% sure the Batmobile will go on the spinner mech, I hope it does.

I had never seen Batgirls Batcycle before though so I guess it's exclusive to this set, I have been watching a couple on eBay for a while but they are ridiculously priced stumbled across this one at a great price and it was already in the UK which was a bonus no shipping and 20% import.

#4652 3 years ago

Posted in other thread.....Matt is shipping me the wireform back tomorrow, will be here for me to install and start testing this weekend!!!

Picking up my fresh powder coated coindoor and shooter assembly Friday. Is this a sign?!? Code Thursday!?!? I'm liking our chances this week!!!.....

#4653 3 years ago

Also just saw on FB....Stern posted today is Adam West Day!!! The stars are finally lining up....

Can you take video of the ramp in action?

I saw that and thought about asking about the code but decided against it because I've heard they are aggressive about blocking commenters...on reflection, I think I have Stockholm syndrome.

No worries...I asked...twice.....suggested " this means a major code drop on Thursday? Batman would approve "

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

I will. Should have clarified I should have the wireform on Friday, so can get it installed on Saturday.

My plastic flap will be off, so very anxious to see it in action.....

I'll take some pics on install, then set up for some video action...

Maybe code is coming sooner than later. Over the last week Stern had had a couple facebook posts referencing Batman66. I wasn't sure why since it just opens the door for people to respond with "Where's the code Stern?" So maybe something us coming soon and they are trying to start putting the game back on peoples radar.

Surprisingly there are a few snarky code comments that people have left in there that Stern didn't delete. Maybe Zach has convinced his bosses to do social media the right way. Or maybe there were much worse comments that did get deleted? Who knows. Some of them are funny.

Batman66 code complaints have even made it to Frachis facebook as well where he teases his new Stern game reveal at expo. So maybe the percentage of disgruntled stern buyers is getting bigger.

I've posted several times inquiring about code....no problems yet

Quoted from MK6PIN:

Some of those comments go beyond inquiry and are more of a jab at Stern. I'm glad to see they didnt get deleted.

#4661 3 years ago

Can anybody tell me what type of pins and the orientation of them for the left ramp switch??

#4662 3 years ago
Quoted from Bonnevil69:

While your on the subject of the left ramp switch, would it be possible to mount the existing ramp gate to your new ramp? To keep it looking similar to the right ramp.

Pm sent....just woke up for work and saw this...

Right ramp uses opto, not a gate...pic of left switch connector...already sent to Matt

Shows how little I've actually played my LE the last couple months.

#4666 3 years ago

I've ordered some sample colors of colored lexan , as I'm thinking about replacing the right Clear with translucent light purple ( can't decide the color until I see it on the game...a lot of light blue around there too), then leaving a very small piece of translucent light red under the cat on the left ramp. Thinking it might look better than a flat piece of metal to attach to.

Should " balance" the look...but these are finishing touches....wireform is my priority...

You did have me scratching my head a bit......

Agreed....they've left some pretty aggressive ones on their main page, regarding a variety of issues. I may be naive, but always have gotten best results w problems with direct communication to the manufacturer ( leaving out the drama), voicing my concerns/ problems.

I left a message on Stern's facebook a few weeks back (someone even posted their reply here) and it was a non-reply. It was as vague as possible. Sometimes, even a little communication can go a long way. For example, what features are planned for the next code update. A window of time for when they are trying to get it done. Anything. But when you get "we're working hard and it's awesome" that tells you as much as you knew before they replied.

Agreed, but pitchforks here I believe even have less effect. We all know the challenges here...

#4671 3 years ago

Stern was hacked see link for details and how to safe guard your computer and identity.

Quoted from MK6PIN:

Oh, I agree with you 100%. Attacking them is the wrong way to go about it. I never attacked them, and I didn't even make the implication that it was the way to go, so we're on the same page there. I just think that ANY information they could give to customers who have paid close to $10k or more is deserved for something like this. It's not like incomplete code nearly a year after release is an industry standard for pinball (is it? I honestly don't know - if so, I take it all back).

Also..."we all know the challenges here"? Are you sure you don't work for Stern?

#4673 3 years ago
Quoted from legionsoup:

Also..."we all know the challenges here"? Are you sure you don't work for Stern?

Ha.....not a chance in this world.....I have enough problems w my company.....

My reference w " we all know the challenges here" simply refers to the points that have been beaten to death...new facility, questionable quality on some fronts, incomplete code, and very poor communication.

What we don't know is how/ if they plan to address. I REALLY hope this code drops tomorrow....the window for rebuilding credibility is closing fast. I'm sure they're aware. Hopefully, they really want to provide a superior product, and will right the ship.

We all know what is lined with " good intentions", however. Seems " Goliath" ( Stern) can fall victim just as " David" Heighway, just moving the situation and decimal point a bit.......

#4674 3 years ago

As a heads up...I'll be moving the wireform process to the correct thread, as it will have a lot of boring ( for some) stuff in it. Will leave this thread open for code updates, and any other cool BM stuff...mark

#4675 3 years ago

Every little cluster of posts excites me a little bit. Code update blues.

Could you drop a link in here though Mark? I seem to be struggling to find the wireform thread in my active threads list.. thanks.

Think he's referring to my original plea for wireform help. If so, ill re-name it and link to the bottom of the thread when he starts posting.

Given my history of getting all hopeful for nothing, I'd say:

#4685 3 years ago

Why is it so quite here today so far? Is everyone busy at work, or in deep meditation hoping not to jinx an update.

Another Thursday bites the dust.....

Quoted from taz:

I have a feeling if they are preparing one or sitting on one, they will drop it right before Expo, like on the 4th, 5th or the 10th.

#4698 3 years ago

They basically MUST release whatever they have or it's going to be an extraordinarily uncomfortable Expo.

#4699 3 years ago

A recent rumor with some potential merit is no GOTG at expo, but instead a massive BM66 update.
