I listed once before in general discussion the lists of all manufacturers and the machines each manufacturer made, and also listed what titles were made in year/date order.

As a resource to keep in DMD to present, best not to post under this first post, that way it will stay as a resource fact sheet instead of a discussion post please.

For general interest, STERN'S modern pinball machines, manufactured between 1999 and 2013 have produced a total of apx 55 game variations.

If you didnt know your Stern machines back to front, here is a list I have compiled for interest. Hopefully I havent missed any.

I have listed the title and year. Its good to see how STERN has evolved over the modern DMD years with many different and varied titles.
If I was to guess, STERN have probably produced a few thousand machines per title, and in some cases alot more. Perhaps they have made as many as 100,000 machines over the last 13 years, perhaps even alot more, given they export to around 30 countries.

Here is the list for 1999 to 2012 inclusive.

note -some of the headings/sub headings for Bally Midway/Williams got mixed up from the copy/pste so just ignore any small typo.

The idea to these lists, is that it can give anyone a sense of what was made and when and u can sometimes see different trends at different factories with a lack of licenced products, or a sincere desire to just build non licenced.

Records obtained from IPDB.
Some records may not be accurate, and I haven't put them in date order.
Gottlieb listed every machine as SS, and not DMD where applicable for some reason.

This list can be used by members to see when a title was designed and the approximate number proiduced by Gottlieb (Premier).
