I just got a call earlier today about a balls not being in a game, so I went to find a really distinct burning smell coming from the game.
looking under the table and found three blown fuses and three shorted coils. replaced them all and everything seems fine now. The only thing I did differently, is recently I put one other pin and this one on a digital timer. They both turn on at the same time, but at least they stay off for a certain amount of time everyday. It had been working fine for about a week until now. That is if it even has anything to do with that. One coil was for the right sling, another was for the castle when it shakes and the last was for the bottom jet bumper.

The timer rated at 20 amps, it's actually a pretty decent one intermatic timers

I can only speculate as to why this might of happened, but if anyone has any other idea's let me know. Usually stuff like this is just symptoms of a bigger issue. who know's

Think I'm just past the one year mark so warranty no longer applies.

I turned that off, I went ahead and reset all high scores though. Since I had first, figured no one could be mad except me.

I still don't know why it didn't set my initials for castle champ. haven't had time to play it in a while, maybe I'll get there again eventually.

what's the likelihood of the game being announced at the expo?

huh, yeah I was grand champion. damn, guess it's just me. I really don't want to have to reset the scores but... guess If I got it once I can get it again.

I appreciate it.

yup just tried it again, manually destroyed 7 castles entered data for 4th place. The initials showed up there,

but they did not show up under castle crusher jcy still has it with 6 castles.

It didn't update then. I entered my initials in once and it set it for #1 champ but not castle crusher.
that title is still held by Jcy who destroyed 6. I'll try to destroy 7 castles to see if it happens again.

not sure if this is supposed to happen. destroyed 8 castles and the current high is 6 on my game. I was able to enter my initials in for 1st place but not for that. is there something wrong with it? or can you only enter your initials in for one thing only? I know the other bally/Williams games I have it will let you enter two things. is it kinda like the jump rope thing for champion pub where you can only hit 30.

That would be nice if they could remake Big bang, I also played KingPin from capcom on visual pinball that seems like it would of been a great game, to bad. Lot of great titles, I stopped buying new and started getting old bally/Williams machines. Got titles I was sure probably weren't on the remake list, Champion Pub and RFM. Saw a NIB champion pub on ebay for 8,400. Just curious would that mean Adams family might make it on the list or is that midway. I get very confused with these companies. bally/midway, Williams, bally....

I was gonna buy a second playfield, I'm assuming they are identical the mmr and mm?

I was looking on the planetary pinball store and I didn't see one.

regardless of whatever it is  you can sign me up. I have the medieval madness on route right now and it's doing great numbers anywhere from 150 to 200 a week. I even have a WOZ and it's usually does about 3/4 of that. think one of the main differences between a lot of the games from the 90's and now is there was a clear objective, you really only had to play the game a few times to get the gist of it. So the majority of the players aren't confused as to what's going on half the time.

 WOZ seems to appeal more towards people who are more experienced. one of the biggest complaints I get from new players is they feel cheated because their game is over in usually less then a minute. I was able to somewhat remedy that by turning on the ball save timer and increasing the chance of a match to 20%. still doesn't make it easier to understand.

but owning the MMR has definitely turned me on to investing in the next few to come.

I'd honestly rather pre-order. if you think about it your going to be waiting about the same amount of time regardless (from now till you get your order). the difference is you kick back and wait knowing you have a secure spot and you find out what the title is to game #2 faster :D

I was lucky though, I only waited 7 months. Honestly wouldn't of bothered me to wait longer, but I'm happy it came when it did. anybody who has done any kind of project, which should be everyone. Should realize things usually take longer then expected almost everytime. The more variables involved the higher the chance. the funny thing is people understand this ( I think anyway). one of the biggest things about most people is if they can complain they will, to anyone listening.

yeah I was getting that feeling when I playing the game yesterday. because I was shooting the right and left and nothing was happening. I'm going to stop by the location tomorrow to investigate more thoroughly. more then likely the I need to bend the metal for the switches to make sure they register. I was going to check the castle gate again anyway. I think my previous problem of hits not registering is not where it needs to be.

yeah now I'm 100% that joust is messed up. I was just playing the vpX version and regardless of which side you go it loops the shot all the way and sounds off joust. on mine half the time it doesn't matter which side you go nothing happens. pinball tables are labor intensive for sure. just yesterday I had a WOZ ripped apart.
I only have three and the stern one is the only one that hasn't caused me any trouble. "knock on wood".

ahhh.. no I was not aware of that. so you can only shoot the right side for joust huh? and then once you complete you can shoot the left all the way around?

if that's the case, I'm issue free! well besides my reflector lights falling out, but that's not a big deal.

thank you
