A slightly annoying issue that has crept into the Space Orbit machine over recent months is the game serving the ball up at game over. You don’t actually get a free ball as it’s in the game over state (so switches & flipper buttons are disabled), but the ball is served up into the shooter lane as it clicks over to game over. It’s not a show stopping issue as you just shoot the ball and watch it drain before starting a new game. But it’s an issue I’d like to get to the bottom of. As you can see here, the game is in the game over state, with the ball sitting in the shooter lane.
Time for a smallish update on a few miscellaneous things that have had my attention during the week. The first thing I wanted to look at this week was the credit button on the front of the cabinet. It’s functioning correctly, but I was eager to disassemble it and give it a clean.
