I just ordered mine today and reviewing all the cool mods!

#11998 10 months ago
Quoted from docquest:

Stern said the last 50 Batman66 premiums made in 2018 got a card signed by Adam West.

I was told the Premium I just ordered will have this.

#12007 10 months ago
Quoted from thundergod76:

Totally agree. I bought a Pre the day this pin was announced hoping to get one of the Few signed cards. They were pretty limited for the Pre. I didn't get one. It irks me that people buying one 2 years later are getting signed cards.

Gary found some cards cleaning out his desk..

#12123 10 months ago
Quoted from AUKraut:

If you have a sticker on a magnet this happens fairly often......mine does it as well, hanging on the ModCouples' sewer sticker.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

I have no sticker, it’s stock, but the ball still sticks. Any other ideas or any fixes? Thanks!

What about a small piece of mylar for the hole in the middle?

#12124 10 months ago
Quoted from hawkmoon:

Here 's one for all you LE owners=My Batsignal went out yesterday,and I took it apart to see what kinda bulb it took! When I finally got it apart,the "bulb" was a sealed unit inside a small piece if white plastic with ridges on the side!! There is no way to replace this as no one has ever seen any thing even close to this!!! Chas at Stern didn't even know what the heck it was!!Apparently,the SLE and the LE are different!!!Waiting on Chas to see what he can do!! So,beware if yours goes out,maybe a hassle to fix!!!

Maybe you could check the voltage on the socket while it's on and replace the existing with a new socket and an easier to source bulb?

#12135 10 months ago

Finally out of the box and updating code.

I've also started with the mod orders:
- The Mod Couple - Batman 66 Sewer Magnet Protector Mod kit (I'm actually on the fence about installing this now..)
- The Mod Couple - Batman 66 Custom LED Batphone Upgrade
- The Mod Couple - Batman 66 "KaPOW" custom shooter plate!

- Pinball Life - Batman '66 Art Blades

- The Modfather - Batman 66 Premium Pincup

#12142 10 months ago

Out of the box it plays ok, but that damn wire for the Cat Light above the left ramp. It was completely in the way and wouldn't allow a ball to pass through the orbit and I've been messing with it trying to get it to stay in place. I also need to increase the angle a bit as its a little shallow.

#12143 10 months ago
Quoted from jfh:

How could you pass on the Mod Couple Atomic Pile mod? If there is one “must have” mod, that’s the one!
There are other options for the phone upgrade. I prefer the toy bat phone on the cake plate version, but there are advantages to the MC phone mod

I haven't..

It looks like the speaker lights are no longer available, which is a real bummer. FWIW, I'm also looking into legs & rails, but then I'll need to send it all out to be powder coated.

#12148 10 months ago
Quoted from jfh:

Ok whiskeytango you are good to go!
Not sure the real knocker kit adds a lot and I still haven’t installed the siren dome covers because it seems out of place to have two when the Batmobile only has one but the rest are primo.
I sold my speaker light kit because I didn’t like the look as much as I thought and went with a couple of docquests logo magnets instead. I don’t think they distract from the TV effect as much.[quoted image]

Good points on the knocker and siren dome covers. I've pulled the knocker from my list and will probably do the same with the dome covers.

I'm on the fence about what to do with the speaker lights and may go with a more subtle route as there is a lot going on already.

#12153 10 months ago
Quoted from jfh:

I thought they had fixed it on newer games. Of all of the tweaks to my game dressing that cable was the biggest PITA.

Did you do anything special? I've just pushed it aside for now.

I'm interested in a set myself, but I like the standard black that's already on the Premium.

Quoted from Sako-TRG:

Hi Batclub,
Anyone had any issues with ball overshooting the batsignal / riddler hole switch?
Ball goes over the switch and sits at the back of the hole and Pin has to go in ball search mode?
Was thinking of sticking something at back of the hole to make ball fall back central in hole to activate switch to get launched back into gameplay....

Happens to me as well. I'm looking into a few different options to mitigate.

#13136 6 months ago
Quoted from Yoxxy:

Anyone know what to buy to protect the mystery hole/kickout? Mine is beginning to wear through the clear coat. Also seems cliffy is quite a ways out. Tia.

Yeah.. When I reached out recently he was still 3 months behind.

#13171 6 months ago
Quoted from Thunderbird:

No tape is needed and this is a super easy fix. Just go into your adjustment settings for the penguin crane and set all the numbers to zero and it will put your crane exactly over each light. Also, the ball will not get trapped on the furtherest right side ever. I’m not sure why Lyman hasn’t set them all to zero??? Causes people to try taping optos and all kinds of unnecessary fiddling. The settings menu adjustments are all that’s needed. After that it will work perfectly as intended every time.
(I see someone added this as well above after I posted too.)

I moved the delay to 0 and it's still a bit off. Any other suggestions aside from tape?

#13176 6 months ago
Quoted from iohonnes:

I had similar issue - I did two things.
1) set lag to 0
2) fiddled with the adjustment tab that triggers the opts.
Between those two, I got the crane to stop a little off center for both the clockwise and anti-clockwise rotations. Without physically modifying the adjustment tab, that was the best I was going to get. I accepted that a little tiny bit off center for both directions was better than dead on in one direction and noticeably off in the other.

Mine is just like wotto, dead center on the way out and significantly off on the way back. What kind of "fiddling" did you do to get your results?

#13227 6 months ago
Quoted from jorant:

I heard they are working on another update to the game. What on earth does Lyman think this game needs to add for crying out loud?

MUST ADD MORE CODE!

#13247 6 months ago
Quoted from mlboom:

I’m thinking of getting the atomic pile mod. How easy is it to install I don’t want to have to do a bunch of work to get it in place. I can’t tell from the website how it gets installed. Thanks.

It's not too bad, but threading the wire down is a pain. I used a hemostat to help it along.

#13251 6 months ago
Quoted from DudeRegular:

I would redownload and then make sure it all looks get when you unzip it. No changes or difference with the latest patch.

If you're really concerned, you can download an image of the SD card and do a direct dump instead of upgrading from the machine.

#13254 6 months ago
Quoted from TomN:

Downloaded code on my Mac and then updated. Table froze once, but after restart seemed to go smoothly. Not really sure what to make of it? I've updated this machine so many times I've lost count. Maybe a problem with newer version of Winrar or something on my laptop it didn't like?

Could be an SD card issue.

Quoted from TronGuy:

I haven’y owned any pins for several years, though I love to play. I have 20 arcade games in the garage.
I just paid for the catwoman model. I am pretty pumped!
First thing I want to do is get a few “necessities” .
Plastic protectors? Mezelmods has a set for $30 or less.
New pinballs? I can’t remember who I bought from in the past. Though I thought people said to get good ones, don’t use sterns.
I am probably not modding this up right away, unless there is something as cool as the flasher mod on stern star treks center shot. (I forget the name now).

Here is what I've installed in my game.

#13365 5 months ago
Quoted from DeathHimself:

For those of you who had swapped out the Dog chew toy phone for the Mod couple's upgrade phone, did you guys pull the whole turn table to reach that dam plug? I read the instructions like six times and cannot reach that plug no matter what. Yes bat computer plugs etc are all disconnects as well.

I used a hemostat to push the wire through on mine. On another, I pushed the harness wire up from underneath and was able to connect the extension cable that came with the kit.

Quoted from TronGuy:

I had some longer bolts on hand and went with those.
Any reason I would need this conn3ctor with a capacitor ?

It is specifically recommend by Stern to address electrical noise on the 48v power source.

Notice: When using the Genuine Authorized Stern Shaker Motor Kit #502-5027-01 on Spike 1 and Spike 2 system games, it is required that the Cabinet Node Capacitor Kit be installed. This additional capacitor prevents mysterious SLAM TILT switch activations from occurring.

The turn table seems to be higher than the rest of the Playfield. Causes some crazy air balls. Is that common or can I lower it somehow?

Quoted from Navystan:

With the wet method, it took about 2 or 3 minutes to do each side.

+1 on the wet method. I've done a bunch of games for people this way and it's easy while also being forgiving. RapidTac is my preferred solution.
