I took the cage off when upgrading the game a few months ago - but you can see where it would go with the metal part at the back and then the subtended lights and where they plug in. I'm guessing Stern forgot to add those subtended lights. Are you running the latest code?

any other premium owners not got the subtended lights?

Phil is on the case :thumbs:. I was playing a few games and thinking everything seems to be working, can't see any faults or issues. Took me a while to realise the backbox lights were out :rolleyes:.

The main thing is it is fully playable :clap:. Are the flippers alligned differently to other Stern's, as in pointing down more?

I'm sure mine are correctly alligned as they point exactly at the 2 small holes, just feels a little different to my Metallica. I've read similar comments too about GOT, GB , BM66. Not a problem :thumbs:
I never trust those holes! Always take a line from the lane guide and ensure the flipper rubber is in-line (or parallel if slightly offset).

All initial BM66 came off the production line with flippers slightly lower than the lane guides. Seems to have continued throughout production as recently built premiums seem to have the flippers in the same position. I put mine inline with the guides almost immediately and never had issues with my left orbit like most did.

I'm pretty good at the left orbit shot, the right one not so much, not because of bad geometry, just my poor timing. I might have a look at the flippers the next time I have the glass off but don't want to bugger anything up.

I've got the clear washers coming for the Slings, always look better than the metal ones, and I've got the Sewer magnet decal/protector in place. If I'd have known the image was freely available on the internet I would have had a go at printing my own.

I also think I've got a magnetised ball in there as now and again it won't release from the magnet.
