Quoted from TopMoose:

100% this.
When I was looking for a new game I knew I wanted something other than a fan layout, and that eliminated just about every game from the past 20 years. Love that Baywatch has unique layout and tons to do.

Unique layout, yet still has so much flow. Great combo for us!

Yes agree. So much for the price. My one wish is if they had a true orbit shot. Hitting left orbit for it to come to a screeching hault above the right kicker kinda sucks. Been thinking about making a more contoured diverter to see if it would keep some more momentum.

That being said I have a demo man for orbits and flow.

I've got my Fish Tales for that too, it is kind of disappointing hitting that left orbit and then waiting for ball to fall back into inlane

My left orbit is very smooth and returns to the right flipper quickly without stopping at the right kicker. I'm always very pleased with that orbit because I really enjoy orbits am have been amazed with how packed the playfield is that the left orbit exists.

#2605 30 days ago

Lots of haters out there. I remember playing it everyday at lunch when it came out. Awesome design. Too bad people get so hung up on the theme. So glad I was able to get one a few years back.

#2606 29 days ago
Quoted from per3per3:

Did you go with color matching LEDs for the various inserts or just natural/cool white?

I typically color match except for yellow inserts which I use warm white.

Did you adjust the gate arm plate to get the good flow? I know it would screw up shark auto kick, and maybe there isn't room for the change, but i would like to do something like i photo-shopped here.

I didn't make any adjustments to my gate. I'll take a pic later to compare.

What's a realistic price to pay for this game right now?

#2610 14 days ago
Quoted from zrbrt:

Price police may say otherwise, but the reality is $2,500-$3,000 for one in good condition. Better/worse adjust from there.

I have one in MN that I would let go for $3k. All led's and color dmd. 1 side of cab has slight fade. Playfield is perfect.

Hi All -

Just picked up a Baywatch. I noticed that the display looks to have 'burn-in,' and when powered up, it the display works but the brightness of the dots are dimmed in one area (see pictures). I have little experience with these large displays, and was wondering if this is repairable, or if this is just how it is going to be forever. Thanks in advance.

PERFECT excuse to get the colorDMD, they look ridiculous in BW. I sadly do not have the funds for one.

Quoted from northerndude:

Agreed - I just have so many other keeper games that I rather purchase a colorDMD for, and repair this one cheaply (if possible) in the interim. I'm not holding my breath, but maybe this can be repaired as the LEDs work, they are just dim?

#2616 13 days ago

just give it some time... BW is a keeper!

The good news is that the introduction of the ColorDMD has significantly lowered the price of used ones.

#2618 13 days ago

I have a used one I would sell. But I agree with the others.....get a solid 30 games in and you won't let it leave. And I'm sure you will want the color dmd when you decide to keep it.

Yeah, i have a used for sale at 250

#2620 13 days ago

ALSO, for any BW newbies, acquire and toss in the new "Chad code" WORTH it for the gameplay!! Changed my whole BW world

#2621 13 days ago

Yes the new Chad code makes BW a top 40 pin .Shots were there just needed a better code. Easily the best Sega and better than a lot of Sterns and B/W'S.

Agreed ! Finally the Shark Awards are go ! And the huge improvement to the gate opening/timing and the slight increase to the time to make the Shark scoop have improved things immensely.

No insta multiball is a huge differnece , now you can really work the Tower awards when you want to instead of fighting NOT to get the Locks lit, plus all the other tweaks.

I loved Baywatch before, I love it even more now !

#2623 12 days ago

I would let my old display go for $200

#2624 12 days ago
Quoted from V_piscopo:

mine was the actual display used to colorized the images for coloDMD

Surely worth the cost for the real deal

I personally wont go less than $250 as they are still worth it to have as a back up or for another big screen game.

#2625 12 days ago

I know. I've kept mine thus far hoping to score a MSF or Maverick. I unfortunately don't have color dmd and am stuck with pin2dmd maybe one day I'll pony up.

New member to the club here! Anybody know where I can find a set of service rails? One is missing and the other is bent out of shape .

I noticed the stern Sam era rails look like they might fit, but didn’t know for sure.

Also, does Cliffy not sell protectors for BW any more? Didn't see them on his site.

Mine came without rails. I installed a set I had bought for a modern stern. They fit perfectly.

Had a great game last night. I didn’t get as many modes done as I wanted BUT I hit my first huge shark hole jackpot last night during a game, it was soooo gratifying, one shark hole drop got me 225,000,000. Got my score a big bump. Ended up somewhere around 1.777 bill

I'm generally finding my scores are a bit lower since the Chad update.I think my current best is around 1.4 bill . On the old code I had multiple scores over 2.5 bill. Obviously that was over a longer time period but I just dont seem to be breaking 1 bill as often as I used to.

I'm guessing in the main because I'm not getting the multiball as frequently.

#2633 3 days ago

Agree, I'm rarely over 2 billion. Usually stops at 1-1.5 with the new code on a good run.

I'm finaly in!
