question about a batman forever drain issue
« on: November 20, 2020, 02:26:29 PM »
hello im restoring a batman forever pinball but noticed it skips over and drains. At first it didnt bother me figure it was a random factor in the game but it's doing it about 90% of the time. Seems to be aligned probably. Is it normal to do that? Thanks

Are you saying that when the ball comes down the habitrail/ramp, the ball drop and goes into the outlane rather than the inlane.?  If that is a case, it is typically an issue of alignment which can be addressed by adjusting the screws that hold the ramp in place and moving the ramp.  Thati s a trial and error process, but it usually works out.

If it is coming too fast and bounces when dropped, some deadening foam can be used to slow it down on the ram in some less obvious spot.  Not sure if that helps, but it is my guess based no the limited info.

Good luck.

That's exactly what's happening. Thanks Ron! I fabricated a shield for both sides. i'll look into the alignement some more but it looks like it came with the game. :)
