We’re in the club! Thanks to lpeters82 !
Enjoying it immensely, my favorite part is slamming renfield into the bars. But master.....slam. That and Buffy, idk why on that one. Just stupidly funny. Great game, can be very dark and difficult. I have no idea why it isn’t a top 20 game. It’s a movie theme I’ve come to appreciate more with time. If you get a chance watch the cut scenes, I think they add a lot to the movie. my Favorite line is “if my beloved burns in hell then so shall I”.
It’s alive! Oops wrong theme..anyways just completed a rebuild of my driver boards caps. Had a restart couple days ago, took one look at the caps and said yup, it’s time. Was just gonna do c4/c5 and retest. But...figured while I was under the hood, do em all. I opted to go with the original cap size for c4, some recommend a little more juice, but I opted for oe spec’d. Played this evening without a reset, game seems a little more lively. Maybe it’s in my head, but ramps seemed a little easier to hit. A little. Good to have him back in the land of the living....living dead that is.
Having a problem with my bsd, every once in awhile the ball launch sound is missing. Is that sound activated by the switch in the shooter lane or the launch button? Or is it a intermittent board issue? Thx!
I think we all need to rate or re rate the game. Bsd deserves better than 36. And maybe if we start listing ours for sale at some ungodly level, the pinside value will shoot up.
Oh how i love bsd. My last 3 games...48mil, 3mil, 154mil... didnt do any diff strategy. Man on 3mil game the dang ball never even hit a flipper on one of the balls. Such a everything or nothing game. I hate it, and love it for that reason.
Anybody sell the square multiball inserts with the lettering applied? Otherwise I’ll have to order the inserts and print them out. Rather just pay someone else...
Just checked our audits....we’ve had our bsd for about three months and we rolled 1000 plays! Damn fun game!
Where can I find the blued steel ramp guides? mine are giving too much these days and have formed a little divet.
Anybody know where switch 85 is? Getting an error, says left ramp diverted but diverter is working properly, at least it seems.
I’ll give it a check tonight, thx! As part of a different project I swapped driver boards, and the problem remained so it’s definately a playfield issue.
Yw! I ordered the same part a few weeks ago, along with the lower part. Still gotta bolt it all up, just got the rivets and tool from Marcos.
Mine does at startup I kno, not sure during coil test but I believe it would. Mine likes to rub on ramp sometimes slowing it down.
How long you guys figure to do a playfield swap? Never done one before but i do my own work and am mech inclined.
Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:
If you've never done one, figure twice as long as anyone tells you. Time also depends on if you're just doing a swap or cleaning and rebuilding everything.
I will say, BSD is complicated and time consuming. It might be the heaviest playfield I've ever dealt with and there's a LOT of shit on it...topside and bottom side. Maybe not the first one you'd want to do, but I guess you have to start somewhere.
I have a playfield to swap out with, mine has a lot of insert wear. The other option is to swap inserts and retouch the edges. Trying to decide what I want to do. Is it possible to do it in a weekend? I may run the parts through an ultrasonic cleaner but other than that wasn’t planning on doing a full refurb.
Quoted from NPO:
I am doing AFM right now, and in Bryan's own words - it's one of the easiest ones to do.
It has taken me about one full weekend of effort to get the PF down to almost complete bare minimum to be lifted out of the cabinet.
If you can do a complete teardown and rebuild on BSD all by yourself with no one else's help and have the game fully up and running with zero errors in a 48 hours period, you should quit your day job and start taking requests.....
It’s difficult but not impossible. I used to do head gaskets on 90’s 4 cyl fords in 3 hrs flat. Tear down, repair, reinstall. As long as no machining required. So I think I can handle it. I definately wish I had a helper tho that has done it before. I have done a top side teardown already, it’s the underside I’m worried about. Where I get in trouble is if I don’t do it in one long pull, if I leave the project for a day or two and come back then things get fuzzy. That’s where the trusty cell phone pics come in.
