Thank you delt31 for your thorough review and insights from a former OG owner.
Agree on the lockdown bar. My issue is with the latches themselves. You need to push them almost closed before lowering the playfield or they can get caught under the rails and you won’t realize it until you put the lockdown bar on and try to latch them but can’t. Then you need to slightly lift the playfield, hold the latches tight against the front, and then lower the playfield. I don’t like latches on lockdown bars in general (I like the BW receiver handles) but these are worse than Sterns.
Quick update on mine: I had not turned mine on in several weeks as I was at a point where I just wanted some of the software bugs fixed before playing it more. Went to power it on with software update USB in hand, and just got a black screen with the CPU fan running. I’m currently working w/ Cato on what the issue is. Frustrating. But Cato is awesome and I’m sure we’ll figure it out.
