I’m bringing my BS to SFGE in a few months, and will install a CDMD for the show. Just swapped the lower flipper mechs completely out for B/W, it was a huge pain in the ass but worth it, I think. This game is turning into a keeper for me, best bang-for-the-buck game I’ve owned since NASCAR, and I love the theme this time.

Why would you take it the Capcom mechs. They are better than the Williams ones

Ease of maintenance, but I mainly did it because I had a few stripped holes in the original and my hacks were failing.

Ok that makes sense, I thought you were doing some misguided "upgrade". Capcom are the only flippers better than B/W ones

BS is one of the few games on my want list. I have not had time to read this complete post so if you would please tell me a few things.

1. What type flipper mech's are in the game? Capcom? Williams? Other?
2. I see Color DMD is a must. What other mods are recommended?
3. Is there any difficulty keeping the boards running with Capcom out of business and game quantities low?
4. What can I expect to pay for a game in very good to HUO condition?
5. Anything else I should know. I'm not in a hurry so I can pickup anything I need before I buy the game.

Thanks for any help you provide. Don B (fingersport)

1. it come with capcom flippers, who know what someone did since then.
2. Color isn't a must, but its nice. No mods are needed or recommended on any game, its just crap that causes ball traps and looks like shit.
3. boards are boards, they can be fixed, but it will be hard to find a replacement
4. varies
5. play your games and enjoy them.

Thanks Marvin, now I will just have to keep my eyes open. My guess it will take 2 to 3 years to find one in nice condition.

You might find a nice one sooner than that. Most breakshots seem to be in nice shape; its rarer to find one heavily worn. I'm not sure if they weren't on route much or what the reason for that is. Also, people seem to enjoy the game for a while, and then rotate it out of their lineup, if they have a smaller lineup. Not sure if that's due to shallower gameplay or what. I was casually looking for one, and found a very clean one for a nice price within a year of keeping an eye out. When I bought mine, I saw two others pop up for sale as well. So for a game that had a smaller production run, it still seems to pop up decently often.

there are only 1000 made and not all survive. But I've never seen one with any significant wear.

I have heard this stat more than once, but for such a relatively low production machine, I seem to see quite a few of them.

Mine was filthy when I got it. I pulled the mylar and the playfield looks like new.

they are not that hard to find.

#418 3 days ago

Well you all are right. I have already had one offered to me. I'm waiting for pictures.

Anybody know where I can get a replacement original translite for BS? Also PSPA( has a decent amount of spare parts for Capcom games) shipping wasn't bad from Australia either.

#420 2 days ago

What does PSPA stand for?

#421 2 days ago

Pinball spare parts Australia

On the boards comment, the power driver board is unique to breakshot and they are hard to find in good shape. Your best best is to budget a few hundred and get one from PSPA and send to your board guy for a refurb.
