I sure hope so...I ordered a Premium with a shaker motor from the Game Room Guys this past Monday....I am pretty excited!!

Quoted from thundergod76:

I'd prefer from the rear but that's just me! Sorry I couldn't resist.

Kitty style?

#1001 2 years ago
Quoted from MT45:

The broken one in the pic is a comet Optmax purple that I replaced the stock (broken) LED just 2 nights ago

Flat top is the bare SMD of a 44 bulb ... no dome cover (see image)
I think these will work better as there is nothing for the ball/sling rubber to lever against as its too low. We will see

On a side note......the orange I am seeing under your plastics....is it this product?
ebay.com link » Batman 66 Florescent Protector 8 Piece Set Orange

I like the look on your game, and seeing it close up, I want to ensure what you have.Thanks.

#1008 2 years ago
Quoted from thundergod76:

These ones were made from a Stern Pre the seller had in his possession for a short time. The Stern ones are nice but I prefer these better because they extend over the sling plastic and reflect the light much better. I bought a yellow set but I do like the look of the orange as well.

Are those specific ones available? Can you point me to source? Or are the one o
f a kind?

#1199 2 years ago

Got the call from Game Room Guys today....my Premium is scheduled to arrive at the end of next week....

#1443 2 years ago

So my premium arrived yesterday. I am happy to report minimal issues and I was up and running.
I will need to do the newest code update, as this still has the earlier version.
Overall I am satisfied. Love the soundtrack and the artwork.
So the card on my game is pretty unexciting....is it "lame" if I upgrade it to a Adam West card I just happen to have in my collection?

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

The magnet needs Mylar.
Cliffy has a scoop protector for the game.

Where would one specifically locate a Cliffy for this game...that is available?
I am assuming it is the same as BDK.....but I cannot find one for sale??

#1828 2 years ago

Thanks for the Cliffy info!

#2153 2 years ago

Does anyone know is there a adjustment to prevent the prior high scores/settings from resetting when running a code update? I don't recall that happening on my Avengers Pro (but then again it's been a while for any update). But on my BM66, the newest update wiped out all my "hard work"!.

Does it do this by default? Or is there a way to run the update and preserve the prior scores/settings?

#2161 2 years ago

Anyone have any idea when the next code update is likely to be?

#2415 2 years ago
Quoted from docquest:

I love that Lyman put the batmobile parachute pickup service in the game. Just played it and it's a really cool mode.

What to you do to activate this mode/video?

#2433 2 years ago
Quoted from jfh:

BAT TURN mode:
- Lit at the ATOMIC PILE after 10 hits (default) to the BATMOBILE.
- BATMOBILE spins increase the payoff value.
- When the mode starts, all shots are lit for the payoff value, which
counts down.
- Shoot any shot to collect the payoff value and stop the countdown.
The shot will no longer be available.
- Hitting the BATMOBILE increases the payoff value, re-lights all of
the shots, and re-starts the countdown.
- If a multiball mode (either TURNTABLE MULTIBALL or VILLAIN ESCAPE)
runs with BAT TURN and the turntable moves to the TV side, all of the
shots are re-lit and worth 2x the current payoff value, and the value
will not count down. Shooting a lit shot re-lights all of the other
- The mode is TIMED (40 seconds, default). The timer can be reset to
40 seconds by hitting the BATMOBILE, or by getting "MORE TIME" from
tHe Mystery award.

Quoted from docquest:

To activate Bat-Turn mode you need to hit the Batmobile spinner on the rotisserie. It doesnt matter its its a small hit that barely turns the or a big hit that spins it a lot. After you hit the spinner it wont register any additional hits for a few seconds.
Sine you need to hit the batmobile spinner to enable this mode its only available when you are in one of the villain modes since thats when the rotisserie has the batmobile spinner facing you.
Default number of hits to enable the Bat-Turn mode is 10 but you can change it in adjustments menu to be as low as 5. As you get closer to getting thee number of hits needed it will tell you on the LCD. For example, "3 more hits needed to enable Bat-Turn mode"
Once you hit it the required number of times you then need to hit the Atomic Pile shot to start the mode. The Atomic Pile shot is straight through the spinner and out the left side.
Once the Bat-Turn mode starts you have 40 seconds (time can be changed in adjustments menu). When you hit the batmobile spinner you are doing an "emergency bat turn". You'll see Batman hit the emergency turn lever, the bat chutes open, the batmobile does a 180, then the batmobile drops the chutes.
To pickup the chutes you need to hit a flashing white shot. The points to collect decrease the longer it takes to make a shot.
If you hit the batmobile spinner again then the timer resets back to 40 second, batmobile does another turn and drops another chute, and all the main shots re-light to pick up the chute.

Thank you both!

I would be interested in the bat signals for the speaker grills, as well.
Patiently awaiting the speaker light kit, too...

#5628 1 year ago

I ordered my light kit this morning...can't wait!!

#5796 1 year ago

So maybe I am an idiot....what did I do incorrectly here?
The other pictures I see posted the led ring is centered in the grill...mine is offset to the left (facing the machine). It is centered properly over the speaker hole...so I am not sure how to adjust this.....

Quoted from J85M:

There is nothing wrong with the translite, the game is a Premium with an LE translite swapped in.
I have been wondering for a while how much it would cost to produce a genuine backglass using the LE translite, that would look awesome!

I would buy one....were do we sign up???

#8482 1 year ago
Quoted from docquest:

Find an SLE owner who wants wants to sell it to you. The SLE owners got all 3 versions of the translite.

Well, this option seems simple! Any SLE owners have one to sell?

#8503 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Well if its Batgirl you want why not go all the way with this Stern translite! Before you ask, I found it on the web and have NO idea where to get it! Someone in CO was making alternates and selling them on Ebay for awhile but haven't looked in a long time. Its a Long shot but Marco has the LE translite listed with a part number on there site but it says out of stock. As they are the distributor you never know, they might be able to order one???
Link to Marco page:

I will contact Marco...see if they have any restock pending.
The BG in that alt translite....I dunno...she just looks kinda skanky.
I need some real Yvonne Craig to satisfy my BG fix....

Thanks, I will check around the slings for a incomplete LED this evening. Thanks for the tips!

#8693 1 year ago
Quoted from rotordave:

Looks like the top of an LED to me.

Yep, the led under the right sling shot.
I will superglue it this weekend.
Thanks for helping me solve this mini-mystery!!

So while playing my premium today, the ball got stuck on the gap between the turntable and the play field. I know there has been discussion about "leveling" the turntable,...but I am not sure that is my problem. When I lifted the play field to investigate, the entire turntable seems to wobble in the brackets. Here are 2 short videos of the top and bottom....

Any ideas how to remedy this?

#9715 1 year ago

You guys talked me into it...I just ordered one.
