Try changing the post rubbers to normal black rubbers, I did that when changing the cliffies and don't have that issue ( not sure if it's a result the cliffies, the rubbers or both).
That’s been done on mine and I think it does make a difference - they key thing is getting the cliffy right I think.

For anyone who didn't watch the stream, the main highlights of the code update are mainly the new quantum theatre multiball and a lot of score balancing. Character animations are still ' being rendered ' but should be in the code release. Sounds like a lot of other smaller tweaks which I'm sure will translate into a huge list of changes but those are the largest changes mention.

Do we have an actual date for release Kev ?

code has been released as beta and I have to say is a stonking update. They've added alot and the game feels much more playable. You can get the beta code from JJP if you ask them and I recommend it.

Anyone had their trap door flap break off? Quite a few have mentioned it in the pinside DI owners thread, it just happened to me. JJP have been sending out replacement trap doors with the flap already riveted on so I've filled in the support form. Fingers crossed they send one out, otherwise I'll start badgering Phil :).

Proper cliffies are the best upgrade for this game.
What about the drones - anyone managed to get a set that lasts longer than a few months? Is it hard to swap them out?
