The Topper and projectors are now listed on Stern's site. Topper $400, Bat Signal Projector w/ Base $250 and Bat Signal Projector Add On $200. Is the base needed to clear the topper or why have two versions?

Quoted from docquest:

Doeas the batsignal have a focus adjustment on it so you can get a crisp sharp image regardless of your projection distance?

I just received mine and haven't set it up yet, but according to the directions, yes there is an adjustment for focus.

Quoted from kingkong16:

For those having problems with the stand up Joker target, just adjust the two screws under the PF and straighten the target. It won't get stuck on the metal post anymore.

I experienced this last night. I knew there were some posts here about it, so I came searching. I will have to try this fix and hopefully correct the problem.

#3886 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

The foam is the better long-term solution. Re-adjusting the targets is temporary, they will shift again.

Do you have a picture of what you did? I'm not sure I'm up to the task of removing that whole turntable and causing more problems.

I hope the Joker hasn't messed with the Bat Computer and this is correct!

#4898 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

The two switches are at an angle and the edge catches the post at the back. If you put some foam back there it will keep the target from getting hung up on the post.

Vireland are you saying to put foam on the center post or on the back of the -54 target? And where do I get the foam you are suggesting? I sent a message to Stern for help and they are asking if I can bend the piece it is getting stuck on. Not sure I want to try bending something I could end up doing more damage. I see some got new L brackets, but Stern didn't offer this up.

#4902 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

I used thin black weatherstripping foam, which is pretty dense, and cut to fit behind the targets so they didn't compress so much and get stuck on that metal post at their edges. Bending the post away from the targets may work, too, but I didn't try that.

Thank you!

Does that green area in the pie represent the current state of batman code?

No it would be the Red.

Quoted from cooked71:

Well at least we didn't get a code update that fried our node boards. That's one benefit of being a B66 owner.

I was thinking the same thing. I kept checking for updates like everyone else, but now I'm in no hurry for the download. I think I will wait once it is posted for feedback before I even attempt to load new code.

Quoted from jfh:

I'm hoping the .81 release is what Lyman wanted to release a couple weeks ago and that there is still going to be a Thanksgiving release.
Or maybe this is the Thanksgiving release and Stern delivered "early" ...

Per the Stern of the Union Address for November, looks like one still coming for Thanksgiving, but pushed the Christmas update out to New Years?:

"Batman ’66 – The dedicated programming team also has outlined a plan for code updates with releases scheduled around Thanksgiving and an additional update around the New Year. Be on the lookout for a teaser pic soon showing some things in the works involving the minor villain mode implementation; some very unique and innovative rules!"

Quoted from docquest:

I heard Robin say "Holy Outlane Drain" which I never noticed before.

I have heard this on 0.81 code as I am really good at draining on the left side.

#8003 1 year ago
Quoted from thundergod76:

So I decided to take a good look at the Joker targets on my Premium. The metal bracket looks far enough back. I don't see how the targets on my machine would get stuck. I pushed them back as far as they could go and there is still plenty of room. Could there be manufacturing variations? Could this be a SLE/LE early production run problem only?

This is where it gets stuck on my LE:

#8480 1 year ago
Quoted from tonyoz:

I did as well. Did you notice this on the code download page?
"Note: It has come to our attention that some customers using Windows 7 have had difficulty extracting the latest Batman code release. The native extractor in Windows 7 has difficulty dealing with the file size on certain Windows 7 machines.
Please download the free open source archive extractor. 7-Zip from this link http://www.7-zip.org/ and install before unzipping the game code ***"
Once I extracted the files using that program, the update worked fine

Thanks! I just came looking to see if anyone else was having issues. I thought my download was corrupt and downloaded the whole file again and had the same issue. I will try this fix.

New Code up!

V0.88.0 - Feb. 22, 2018
=======================

- Removed the ability to stack MAJOR VILLAIN modes.
- Reworked the RIDDLER mode to add collect/continue and additional shots.
- Implemented an adjustment the for combos (COMBO LIGHTS BEHAVIOR,
default = FLASH ONCE) that shows the new combo shots that are lit for
much less time when a new combo is started. This keeps the blinking
red arrows from covering up the mode/multiball arrows for too long.
(Other options are: NONE, ALWAYS (ALWAYS is the old default behavior
prior to this release).
- Added two more parts to the Mr. Freeze mode that includes Batman
and Robin frozen in blue and green ice cones, along with the final
fight sequence at the end of Episode #54.
- Added some code to ignore the BATMOBILE SPINNER for a period of time
shortly after the TURNTABLE stops moving.
- Fixed sequencing w/ MINOR VILLAIN mode select and VILLAIN ESCAPE start.
The start effect for VILLAIN ESCAPE will now run after a MINOR VILLAIN
has been selected.
- The TV light on left loop is now turned OFF when the BATUSI wizard mode
is able to start on the same shot.
- Reworked the handling for the launch button so there is less likelihood
of inadvertently using up a gadget when the player is trying to launch
the ball using the fire button.

Quoted from taz:

For the last two updates I’ve had to use mw Windows 10 computer to download, format the flash drive, and transfer the unzipped code to my flash drive. I previously used my Windows 7 notebook computer, but it can’t seem to do the job any longer. Tons of frustrating hang ups moving the files to the flash drive.

I had an issue on the .87 update and it was pointed out it was an issue using windows to unzip. Once I followed their suggestion it has been good so far...

"Note: It has come to our attention that some customers using Windows 7 have had difficulty extracting the latest Batman code release. The native extractor in Windows 7 has difficulty dealing with the file size on certain Windows 7 machines.

New Code up! O.90.0

#9547 1 year ago
Quoted from jfh:

The read me doesn't seem to be there yet.

V0.90.0 - Apr. 12, 2018
=======================

- Added additional modes for Catwoman ("Catwoman's Dressed To Kill"),
Joker ("Surf's Up! Joker's Under!"), Penguin ("Enter Batgirl, Exit
Penguin"), and Riddler ("Ring Around The Riddler").
These can be accessed by:
1) Holding in the right flipper button when the ball is in the shooter
lane with no major villain mode running, pressing the left flipper
button will change the mode that starts next. Repeatedly pressing
the right flipper button cycles through the major villains.
2) Playing through the major villain modes normally. The next mode
to start will be the one that hasn't been played already.
- Added new High Score tables for the new major villain modes.
- The Penguin VUK will now kick a few extra times (consecutively) before
it is flagged with "OPERATOR ALERT".
- Fixed an issue where some player scores for certain villain champions
would not be considered properly for High Score To Date.
- Super Skill Shot is now stopped by the Top Lanes and the Top Eject.
- Improved throughput of node communication for better lamp performance.
- Fixed pricing text alignment in previous games scores screen in attract
mode.
- Added completion (jailed) effects for the minor villains.
- Added logic to be able to start the game using the lockdown button.

Quoted from PinsOnly:

This might be more of a computer issue than a BM66 issue, but here goes. The last 2 updates I downloaded for Batman 66 have not come up right. Here is what I get. Note the .001 does not unzip to the usual way. Any thoughts why it is doing this? I am stuck on 0.98!
Thanks, Dave

I see everyone is saying this is normal, but mine unzipped just fine:

Quoted from rotordave:

His looks like a Mac maybe?
Mine displays the same as yours on Windows 10.

No Mac, PC with Windows 7 Pro. I have been using the recommend 7-Zip since I was having errors prior. From Stern's site:

Quoted from PinsOnly:

Hmmmmm. I haven't tried yet, but I'd be much more confident if mine unzipped like that. When did you download the code? Thanks for replying!

I downloaded the code on the 15th, but didn't unzip and install until last night.
