Quoted from J85M:
I hope the topper interacts a lot with the game
And I hope the topper is made available for the Premium.
Quoted from jfh:
Good choice Jim. If you like Batman the TV series you will love Batman 66 the pin.
Welcome to the club. The only thing you've missed is all the code update drama.
Batman and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. were two of my favorite shows! I was 15 years old when Batman came out and I never missed an episode.
My BM66 should be here any day now.
Are there any online tutorials you would recommend? Thanks!
Just got the call that my BM66 Premium will be delivered between 8AM and noon tomorrow! Preparing for a lost weekend of pinball.
I need to update my software on my newly unboxed game, but am unsure what I am doing. I have erased my USB and formatted it to FAT32. I am now downloading 0.90 from Stern, but I have no idea which of the many choices for 7-Zip I am supposed to add to the USB. Can anyone help?
EDIT: I got it figured out! I did not need the 7-Zip file at all, as that is only needed for those who have Windows 7 issues and I do not.
I successfully loaded v 0.90 with no issues and all is running great! I lucked out and got a cool card with the Joker on it.
Any hints/techniques for installing the side art blades on BM66? Those are some tight clearances! Not sure of the best way of doing this. It looks like it could be a disaster if they stick in the wrong place.

It is a disaster if you put them in the wrong place!
Buy this stuff - Rapid Tac - amazon.com link »
There's a smaller bottle if you want to spend less.
Spray it on the sticky side after you take off the covering. Once the play field is upright, push it over to the opposite side so it gives you a little clearance on the side you are applying the decal. Take the decal, with the Rapid Tac applied and work it into the correct position.
Use one of these rubber squeegees to rub on the decal downward to get rid of the excess Rapid Tac. amazon.com link »
Clean that stuff up with a rag and you're done! The decal will dry perfect!
Thank you so much spandol, this is exactly what I was looking for! I'm ordering it today. What a resource Pinside is - thanks to folks like you and the others on this thread.
Well, I've already ordered the Rapid Tac from Amazon and they say it will be here some time Monday. I think it will be Tuesday when I do the installation. Thanks to both of you, I feel confident it will go well. I'll report my results once it is done.
I think the external volume control from Pinball Life is a good option for home use. An easy install - just remove the plug for the tournament button and it fits right in.
Quoted from spandol:
Cool, looking forward to seeing. I like Rapid Tac, and it's not that expensive.
It worked like a dream! Worth every penny. I struggled and swore installing my Ghostbusters blades last year and today I installed the BM66 ones in less than 15 minutes with no drama at all. They are perfectly aligned and look great. Thanks for the advice Spandol.
I just wanted to post that tonight our daughter and son-in-law came by and we spent the evening drinking wine and playing our new BM66 Premium. What a fun game! We had a great time playing and laughing - and isn't that why we are all in pinball? I love this game!
I ordered the Pin Stadium kit with UV+Glow on Friday for my BM66 Premium. I hope to have it in the next couple of days. I think one of the poppers might prove to be the best hookup for the UV. Anyone have a different recommendation?
Quoted from Yelobird:
For my setup I found the center pop flasher in the Playfield was the best option for the UV flasher. Great effect without being over the top. Hope he is caught up with production but in most cases it does take several weeks for them to ship FYI.
Yes, Scott has shipped it already. It has made it as far as the Des Moines, IA post office on the way to Chicago - it should only be two or three days now. Thanks for the advice on the center pop flasher.
Quoted from thundergod76:
Read this thread. It will tell you everything you need to know to do it the right way. Welcome to the club!
Thanks for linking the thread. A very useful and important mod.
I successfully loaded the new 0.92 code today - it looks great. I set it to free play, put in a custom message and cannot find where to set the difficulty level. Can anyone help? Thanks!
I ordered the MOD Couple sewer decal and the Premium speaker light kit for my BM66 Premium today. Their mods are exceptional!
I'm wondering if a Flipper Fidelity speaker upgrade kit is worth the money on BM66 Premium. Do any of you have advice on this? Also, I was amazed at the number of choices on their website for Spike 2 systems - so many choices!
I'm considering upgrading the Batmobile that came on my BM 66 Premium. It is a boring flat black and grey and is riveted to the disc. I was thinking of doing the Mod Couple turntable mod anyway, so this would be a good time to upgrade the car.
Any suggestions on a better looking Batmobile that will fit? What is the best way to affix it to the disc, Gorilla tape?
Thanks for your suggestions.
Thanks for the great suggestions everyone. I was able to find the exact Batmobile that jfh pictured in his post. It was just a few dollars on eBay. Now I will order the Mod Couple disc upgrade to complete the mod. Thanks again!

Has anyone had any luck contacting Cointaker? Been try for a few weeks.
Go to the Cointaker website. Look at the bar across the top and click "Contact Us". Look down the list until you see this:
570-847-9595 Melissa, Sales / Customer Support
Melissa is one of the very best people in the business. She takes and returns calls.
Thanks to Yelobird for his excellent mods and to everyone who gave me advice on selecting which Hot Wheels Batmobile to use and how to mount it. This is a big improvement over the flat black Batmobile that was riveted down.
Quoted from PBMAN:
Nevermind. Just found link. The is a must next to the Batphone
What did you use to stick the Shakespeare bust down? I'm ordering one now.
I had to order two Shakespeare busts to meet the vendor's minimum dollar amount. The first person to message me can have one of them for free. You must be in the US.
EDIT: The Shakespeare has been claimed. Or should I say someone has grabbed the bust?

Mine arrived today and I installed it in just a few minutes. Looks great! A very nice touch.
My Premium was built in February 2018 and it had the small brackets, which I replaced.
Update 0.94.0 went without a hitch. Make sure you have room for over 4gb on your USB.
But when I go to the site v0.94 is the only one there. Maybe it will show up later tonight.
Even though I am running the latest software, I sometimes get a Villan Vision message that says: "VILLAN VISION UPDATE AVAILABLE" and then it is back to normal next time I turn it on. Any ideas what it is trying to tell me or is it just a software glitch?
Maybe I just got lucky, but I had no problems installing either the Batphone or the Atomic Pile. I did use a forceps to guide the wire.
