You like what I am doing?

Please note, if you pay someone to burn a ROM for you then I see none of that money. Feel free to toss a donation my way. It is much appreciated and keeps me motivated.


"I feel like I just unboxed a new pin!"

"Overall, this thing is awesome, and you have already earned the equivalent of the nobel prize in pinball in my book. Feels like a brand new game now!"

"I can't stop playing. As-is right now, this game is a BLAST. It has STRATEGY NOW!"

"I must say HOLY COW! It's a game with a real challenge now! 6 games in a row and I couldn't break 100 mil! Nicely done and I tested the ball save and it works beautifully. I *like* having to shoot the force and sarlacc pit and I like the steps it takes to light them. It seems much more a players game now because of that alone!"

"Man it gets some crazy different flow now... feels awesome. Like a different table with needing these new shots. And triball is SO IMPORTANT now."

"I love all your rules changes. They are spot on, IMO. All of your changes make it a more enjoyable game.  A lot of thought behind them all. Thanks again for doing all this. The ball save alone is worth swapping out the roms, but you've made the game 'tournament material'."

"Played about 20 games tonight and wow! The big question now is 'what to go for?' instead of just hitting that ramp. It really has seemed to have opened up the game to a whole new level....working to get that Death Star has now become a real challenge as opposed to a given on the third ball. Funnily enough my two boys of 8 and 11 prefer it now as it's such more of a challenge and makes you think more about each shot. The extra speech is an added bonus and the scoring is more balanced. Have to say, loving that Extra Ball super force award, nice touch!"

"Played about 50 games with the new ROM installed and WOW!!! Love the ball save of course but the scores you can rack up with the tri-ball jackpots is amazing. It really makes mastering that shot into the death star the most important. I had a couple of great tri-ball games and scored the super jackpot three or four times and ended up with over 350 million both times. So much more fun than shooting the ramp over and over! The best part is all the undiscovered additions to the game that I haven't found yet. Hope everyone else is having as much fun with their 20th Anniversary DESW!"

"I think there should have been more praise heaped upon Chad by now, must be the new ROM owners are too busy playing! I know I've put more games on it in the few days since I got it than I did the entire year before! It is simply freaking awesome."

 "My chip arrived this afternoon, and I have been playing all day. Great work Chad, it is like having a brand new pin in the house! Money well spent."

"Thank you! Thank You! Thank You! The new Rules are awesome! I just held a small tourney with very competitive players... and they all loved the new Rom. In fact, dudes who had choice of machine in the playoff rounds chose Star Wars more than any other machine in the tourney! Proof that it was a good balanced machine for tournament play! You have taken an unbalanced but fun game... and turned it into a true winner!"

"Purchased the Star Wars Rom and just want to thank you again. It is fantastic! Destroying the Deathstar is so rewarding now, truly amazing."

"Great work. I was speechless after my 1st game. The new rules and the rearranged score layout are done perfectly."

BAYWATCH Unofficial v.4.01
(last updated December 2, 2017)
Help is on the way! The "best office in the world" from this classic 90's TV show themed pinball machine just got better!
The more difficult Skill Shots are now worth more points. Skill Shot THREE OF A KIND AWARD remains 50M but VARIETY AWARD is now worth 150M to incentivize player to attempt all three Skill Shots.
Fixed bug where a successfully completed CPR mode previously did not grant 50M Completion Bonus points.
Instead of rescuing 10 swimmers for 20M each, you only have to rescue 8 swimmers for 25M each.
Fixed Diver Trapped bug so correct bonus is displayed and granted.
Each hit to the bank of SHARK targets kills one shark for 10M. Each hit to the SHARK SUPER SCOOP kills all sharks remaining in wave for DOUBLE POINTS.
No limit to amount of times you can collect double points via SHARK SUPER SCOOP.
Fixed bug where very first Successful Rescue would not count. Failed rescues no longer count against you so you are now only limited by the timer. Fixed bug where a successfully completed Tidal Wave mode previously did not grant 50M Completion Bonus points.
Allowed full Left Ramp shot to also function as Jackpot during Earthquake if Left Ramp Trap Door is disabled (now available via Adjustment 51) or broken.
Shark Awards now progress faster.  Shark Award #3 (SHARK) is now on a 1 minute timer instead of being enabled for remainder of ball, this allows the player to continue to progress with the collecting of the higher Shark Awards without having to drain the ball.
Default auto advancement of Ball Lock has been modified.  You are no longer guaranteed All Locks Lit on Ball 2 by default.
End Of Ball Bonus is now ( 1M + (1M x GUARD) + (2M x LIFEGUARD) + (3M x RESCUE MISSION) ) x SPF BONUS MULTIPLIER.
SPF Bonus Multiplier will now increase twice as fast (was 2X>3X>4X>5X>6X>7X>8X>9X>10X, is now 2X>4X>6X>8X>10X).
Gate timings have been adjusted to be more lenient so ball should be routed correctly more often.

You will want to adjust your automatic SHARK FLIP to maximize successful shots. You can adjust this by going into Service Mode. Remove the glass and eject one ball. Then go into DIAG and scroll all the way to the right and select BAY (this icon looks like the lifeguard tower). This will bring up the SHARK FLIPPER CONTROL adjustment and will allow you to play with the switch and see how the ball/flipper behaves over and over as you make changes to this setting. The ball will automatically eject from the Shark Scoop as you are testing in this mode. Keep trying until you find the best setting. Note, if you set this adjustment to 99, it will disable automatic Shark Flip.



While this CPU patch does not make any changes to the DISPLAY ROMs, you want to make sure your game is running DISPLAY VERSION 4.00 for proper game functionality. You can verify this by checking the very first screen that is displayed when you power on your game.
