Quoted from Spelunk71:

Chas at Stern (RIP) told me a few years ago that he was trying to convince the engineers to make these parts better (or source better ones) but was unsuccessful. That’s just sad for such a cheap part.

Yeah, it's just the unfortunate nature of the investor profit-driven focus at Stern since they bought in. Relentless cost-reduction that sometimes goes too far. Usually (cabinets come to mind) they back off if they've reduced so far stuff is falling apart or dying in the field, but sometimes (coil stops, target ledges) they do not and figure they're cheap enough people will take care of it themselves. Sucks, but what're you gonna do when they are THE market for pinball?

Yep, it’s good to be the king.

Can anyone 3D print a ledge that is better than what stern gives us?

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Given the abuse they take, I would think 3D printed you'd have to print it out of at least nylon or maaaaybe PETG for it to hold up.

Kudos to you, sir. That is fantastic. Now...is it worth buying a drill press, aluminum, etc. and taking the time to make them instead of just buying a bunch of cheap plastic extras? Hmm.

Well, it might be. StrT has drop targets, I believe, and now it looks like JB007 does, too.

I'll have to give this some thought.

#1558 59 days ago

Does anyone have an extra air ball deflector they aren’t using? I lost mine.

Thanks!

for which targets ?

Sits on top of the plastic all the way to the left. It’s the same deflector as used on Batman 66.

Sorry if this has been covered before, but does anyone know how to activate the new "Classic" (Switch, basically) mode from the last code update? I'm probably overlooking something obvious, but haven't figured it out. Thanks inn advance!

It has to be something like holding down both flippers or one of the flippers.

Thank you. That worked. The promise that the game was the original Seawitch scoring is only partially accurate, but still fun to play.

#1565 55 days ago

I like Stern pinball, bass guitar and the Beatles ....

Great week for my Beatles. After almost a year of searching, I Finally found a Beatles Topper - Huge thank you to the kind fellow pinsider for making that deal happen! Also had that airball saver piece powder coated purple as I hated that unfinished Steel look. Love this game.

Wow that powder-coated diverter looks nice!

I hope you didn't pay an arm and a leg for that topper (it would make it difficult for you to play pinball... ).

#1569 30 days ago

Oh I would be publicly shamed for for the price I paid, but I don’t care. I wanted it, I worked for it, and I bought it! Too hard to find to pass up. Completes the game and I’m thrilled!

#1570 30 days ago

Just got another Beatles. Had one a while back. Newest code loaded. Anyone else notice that when you enter your initials that the letters don’t match up with the cursor? Anyway to fix that or is it just a bug?

Congrats - the official topper really adds to this game! It's crazy how much $$$ they go for now though.

Thanks for the deflector powder coating idea too - that looks great!

Send the picture off to [email protected] and maybe [email protected] on the off chance they'll fix it. It's in a pretty visible place, so maaaaybe?

Stern is aware and the fix should be released soon.

#1576 29 days ago

The new Beatles code has been released.

#1577 29 days ago

The powder coat airball looks awesome. I may have to do that with mine! I've been on the hunt for a topper for-ev-er. Nice job securing one!

#1579 28 days ago

I didn't install the last code... will it be a problem to skip that and do this one just released?

#1580 28 days ago

Should be no problem. 1.23 corrected some game reset issues and added Coin Play Home Team but also introduced a display bug when entering high scores which should now be fixed in 1.24. Both 1.23 and 1.24 retain high scores and settings. You should be fine.

Yup, insider connect made the installation insanely easy. Thanks

#1582 25 days ago

Would be interested to know if anybody who updated to V1.24 and has since set a new high score, if Name Entry was successful without issue.
Thanks!

Does anyone have an older Gold version of the SD card code that will work with Pinball Browser, they wouldn't mind sharing? Wanted to customize some of the songs for a friend. Thanks very much for the help!

Joined the club recently, have a Gold on the way. I'm keen to continue the modding work done by others in providing alternate code so different albums can be played.

So far, I believe that Sgt Pepper, Revolver, and White Album have been released.

What albums or mixes would people like to see next?

I think an Abbey Rd, Rubber Soul, Magical Mystery Tour, Let it Be, and Past Masters code is in order....

If interested, or have ideas, let me know

Where have these codes been released? Never heard of them. Thanks.

#1587 10 days ago

Being successful with 1.20 updating the songs, text, etc. On a Gold.

#1589 7 days ago

These only work on non IC games, correct?

#1590 4 days ago

Does anyone have a copy of Beatles code 1.20 they would be willing to share with me? I'm starting to work on code for Rubber Soul, Abbey Rd and Let It Be, but only have access to 1.05 and 1.10 at the moment.

I think I do have a copy of version 1.20 and am happy to share. Just let me know the best way to get it to you.

I'm curious about this too. It doesn't seem like it's been fully determined yet whether these work on IC games or not. But it's awesome to see people are still working on these alternate codes.
