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.

About time. It would be nice if they animate all the disaster phone calls. Maybe some more Bob features. More use of the camera. Anyone else got any ideas what the new firmware could bring?

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.

What are hold/bucket rules?
**** knows ?. Actually I think it's to do with the way the skill shots affect the scoring or the spider, drone etc.... They tried to explain it on the resent Jjp stream of the DI code but it went right over my head.

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?

Didn't someone find them for sale quite cheaply on eBay ? @aaronhicksuk maybe ?

I was surprised at how much downdraft they created

Mine too. I did have a problem with a wire chafing which blew the fuse but otherwise, no problems with them.

So my DI has gone technical - station3 does not stop the ball and it does this when you power it up. Guessing it's an opto issue but before I puull it to bits has snyone else seen this issue ?

Cheers
