Quoted from MT45:

Added another mod to my 66SLE. Concerned about the pinstripe getting worn off near the flipper buttons. I cut some pieces of PET-G and crafted some protectors for each side. Removed 3 screws from Stern siderails, drill PET-G with 5/32" where screws hold it on. Used my punch set to pop out the flipper button holes, installed and they fit perfect!
BTW ... still very concerned about wearing the pinstripe on top of lockdown bar and red bat sticker around the lockdown bar action button. Only solutions I can think of are mylar or clear coat

If these wear in a HUO environment pinball is dead and buried in the wild.

Quoted from MT45:

I have not doubt that the pin striping will wear. If you put a sticker on an area of a PB where your hands are ALL the time, it will eventually show signs of wear or failure. See pic of the top of the LD bar. Every time you touch the center action button you are touching a decal (appears matte finished and no glossy protective overlay)
No biggie, I protect it somehow and I think replacement would be about a 10 second job if and when it got damaged.
Think games like GOT and ST - the action buttons on the top of the LD bar are surrounding by laser cut metal

So just a direct decal with no clear? I assumed there was clear shows what I know!

#359 1 year ago
Quoted from MT45:

Yes, appears that the armor was painted and then cleared, and THEN the striping was added. I thought the same thing you did - why not pinstripe, then clear?

You are very right then it will probably get worn off quite quickly. They should have cleared it!

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

Quoted from taz:

I won't believe this until we hear more details. This is a huge anniversary/big money game, to cut code short would kill any future hopes of repeating Stern's model to make big money on a particular title (possibly Elvira soon). Stern could take a real kick in the nutts if this was the case.....and quite frankly they should. Now, we hit 1.0 or thereabouts and I'll be more open to suggestion.

Every time Stern does something people say they will boycott them, it doesn't happen and stern keeps selling games. I think they have learned some lessons there!

Having said that I can't see Stern being dumb enough to abandon BM66 but I could easily see them delaying it to work on something else. Stern needs to keep its production line running so I suspect that is what drives everything they do. This is a niche game for them so I would think it would be hard to keep their lead programmer tied up on it for a while.

Quoted from mcluvin:

Here's something to consider. You've seen the highs and the lows of pinball popularity over the years and were probably thinking it was done 20 years ago. Yet here we have a resurgence, but you know it's not going to last forever. What do you do? You crank the titles out as fast as you can. You can always go back and fix code right? What do the enthusiasts 20 years down the road wish you had done?

100% agree. Rake in the cash while you can.

Quoted from thundergod76:

I was just thinking. How the Hell is JJP's POTC so far along in code and BM66 is STILL no where near 1.00 in a year's time for both? I love Lyman and all but at this pace what Spike 2 game will ever have finished code? If it takes this long to code a damn Spike 2 game Stern has a HUGE problem.

JJP was a lot slower on code for a while and they kept releasing base software updates. It took a while but my guess is they have the base system nailed and a bunch of that initial time went into making the base system easier for them to code. I believe b66 is the only game code Lyman is working on but bet he is putting a bunch of time in on their system which given the node board deaths I suspect they still are working on. Just look at the system menus they have not changed from dmd.
