Still deciding, to buy BK or not. I played a pro yesterday on location here in Germany and I have to say I like It. Mr.Knight himself is a brutal heartless asshole. But I think I can get used to it. I am daily fighting against my Ghostbusters so I think I can stand that
I have seen DeadFlips stream and I think Pro is the way to go? I have Ghostbusters Pro also and like it.

Just received mine for the weekend. Little gameplay from Germany

Check your shield, it seems to be a bit loose?

Quoted from Robertstone0407:

There really isnt a correct answer on this game. I agree i see the argument for both games. If you fell in love with the pro you prolly wont love the prem/LE. If you played it and craved something just a little more than youll love the LE. I got the LE and love the lock shot and with coding hoping they add more value to it. Stacking both multiballs is satisfying though

Well. Pinball in general is not cheap. So that’s clear. But a piece of plastic, with just one loop, 3rd flipper and another ball lock. Do not justify additional 2000$. I mean there are not even some inserts on this upper field. Except for the 3 indicators on the lock assembly. So no one knows when the loop shot is doing anything.

I know there are other changes. But the pro is the way to go. Well if I won the lottery and don’t care about the money. I would take the high end model as well. But if someone has to look at the bank account it’s a wise decision to take the pro on this one.

Hey guys, can someone take a look in the coindoor and see if your game is fitted with a interlock switch? Since some recent made BM66 Catwoman editions seem to have this switch again. I just want to see if Stern is adding them back to all new games.

Hey guys yesterday I played a LE on Location and suddenly put up a very high score Grand Champion 1.122.492.750.
I made over 740Mio in catapult multiball alone. So I wonder if this is a bug related to the 0.97 software? Anyone experienced this as well?

Quoted from Chalkey:

Lack of code updates is not encouraging for a pro owner. Hopefully they're working on some good stuff and this game hasn't fallen to the wayside.

Anyone have an inside track on an update to the pro code?

Pro owners... ITS HERE!!!
