Been a long time coming, but I can finally join the club! Picked mine up yesterday (9 hours round-trip) and will be unloading it at lunch today. Looking forward to playing (and modding) it. It's a pretty stock player's game with a couple nicks and dings, so pics would be fairly basic.

My game is missing the Batman figure. I have a suitable replacement but can't figure out how it was mounted. I know it's "original" position is diving from the upper playfield. But I don't see a bracket or anything that it may have been attached to. Can anyone post pics of how it's attached? Thanks!

Still looking for a pic of how the Batman figure mounts. Also how tall is the figure that came with the game? The one I picked up may be short. Thanks!

Quoted from stoptap:

Does anyone have a good quality scan of the original instruction card for BTDK ?

Found my mounting bracket for my Batman figure. Now I need to know how tall the figure that came with the game is. Mine is missing and I've been trying to find a replacement. The one I have seems short, but I've read that it is compared to the other figures.

Can anyone help out with a height and/or which figure is a suitable replacement (and not the $75 one)?


#168 2 years ago

Well you're smarter than me then. I ordered one from Marco. Figured it was worth it because it was cheap and I was putting an order in anyway. It came and it's nice, but it's white not yellow for some reason. The part number even ends in -Y.

That's when I found it in the manual.

Now if only I can get someone to tell me how tall their Batman figure is...

#170 2 years ago

Awesome! Thank you so much! So he's about 5 inches. The one I have is definitely too short. My search for a replacement continues.

Merry Holidays Meegis!

#172 2 years ago

Thanks! That's my plan going forward. But it I'm hoping to find the paper at a local craft store so I can get the one sheet I need. I ordered from Marco before I found the card in the manual, so I have no worries about printing it.

#174 2 years ago

No worries here, but thank you anyway.

Has anyone had issues with the ball hanging up on the right side of the Joker gate? Happens quite a bit on mine and it takes either a good shake to get it out (could explain why the tilt bob was missing) or wait for the ball search (the drop target popping back up frees it).

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot.

Quoted from Capinball:

You've checked the leveling and the pitch of the game?

I did when I set it up a few months ago. But good point, I'll check it again this weekend. Based on how 'settled' it is when it hangs up though, I can't imagine that the pitch will make much difference(it seems that raising the pitch might make it worse, and lowering it would make the game slow/"floaty"). Just seems like the bottom of the gate should extend further right than it does.

And I put a tilt bob in it now, so ball search is how I'm freeing it up now.

Anyone have pics of the rubbers on each side of the center ramp? The sides of the ramp entrance are taking a beating on my game. The rubbers are there, but I'm assuming they should extend beyond the metal edges of the ramp?

I found the part number in the manual (Rubber bumper pad blue #626-5085-00) and I see that Marco has them along with their recommended screws for them (4004-01041-06). I'd like to see how it supposed to look if anyone can help. Also looks like I may have to fix the ramps as they are a bit mushroomed from taking hits.


#198 2 years ago

meegis to the rescue again! Thank you! My suspicion is correct. I've added the rubbers and screws to my Marco shopping cart.

Bummer about your air ball deflector. You even have the 'updated' one that was an attempt to keep it from breaking. I put a new one on right after I got mine. Have you tried the reinforcement for the drop target? I bought one but didn't put it on yet.

I did the same Joker mod. Soooo much better. Wish he was just a bit shorter though (and MUCH cheaper). Scarecrow looks cool too.

Can someone post a pic of the wiring on the left flipper EOS switch? I think my wires might be reversed. Thanks!

#264 8 months ago

Perfect! Thanks a ton!

#265 8 months ago

I did have them wired backwards, so thanks again @ccbiggsoo7 ! All better now, play on!
