Former member for ~10 years. I remember playing BH on location when it first came out and it was brutal, for my skill level. Then I would move over to the more forgiving HH. It was great fun once I owned one and was able to play it often. For years I played it without the ball gate on the lower level and it would lock up if you didn't close at least one switch on the lower level before draining. I finally got a clue from Shabow on RGP and sourced the part.
Here's a parts lot for sale with System 80 parts and some BH specific parts - all new from PBR. Leftovers from my Sys80 days. I also have a kit from The Pinball Lizard for using a PB Driver board on the HH up kicker tube. I used the PB Driver Board, but the harness and instructions are there and I'll throw it in this lot.
Quoted from Pinkitten:
Thanks for the tips! I did discover the settings you can change with the 24 dip switches on the main mpu board in the head. It allows up to 25 credits saved, I think, so each time I play it I just open the coin door and manually add 20-25 credits. Free play for hours after that. Do most people play BH with 3 balls per game, or 5? That’s another setting in the dip switches. I’m guessing 3, but it’s such a hard game at first, maybe 5 is more reasonable for average players?
The rules are slightly different 3 vs. 5 balls. I usually played 3 ball.
