    Bally 6803 (Special Force) MPU won't boot (Sound board issue?) Post #1 in topic

    Posted 24 days ago by wylcot – in Tech: Alpha-numeric ‐ Last reply 16 days ago

    Years after my last attempts to start that Special Force game, I had the occasion to purchase a Bally Heavy Metal Meltdown. So I've been able to test my boards on a functional machine, and I've realised that the sound board is preventing the game to boot correctly. When the sound board is disconnected, the game starts. Has this kind of problem already been reported? Thanks for your help !

    Most UNDERRATED game? Post #182 in topic

    Posted 58 days ago by gamera9 – in All Pinball ‐ Last reply 5 days ago

    Bally Special Force. Load bombs on helicopter and drop on village. So wrong. Game is fun and no one knows about it. The bumper caps look like little huts. Hard times for the industry when it was built. Some of the wood on the one I had was from a cut up arcade game.

    Is it just me or is R2D2 the clearly best character to use? The other special abilities seem to be only used in specific modes or situations while R2 ability is good all the time for shot multipliers. I haven’t looked at the supplemental bonus ‘paths’ spotted to see if those might make another character as strong R2. I have not played a ton so I’m still learning the game, was reading the rules and it says the Force (2x bonus) only time out when the overall bonus x times out?

    Bugs in early solid state games Post #38 in topic

    Posted 12 months ago by barakandl – in Tech: Early solid state ‐ Last reply 7 months ago

    Special Force, if that counts as early SS. There is a drop target in front of the 180 ramp that awards collect weapon (advance weapon bonus). When you knock the drop target down with the ball, the collect weapon light blinks. When you knock down the target with a rocket, right extra cab button pushed, the collect weapon light does not blink yet that shot awards collect weapon either way. Pretty sure that the collect weapon light should be blinking whenever the drop target in front of the 180 ramp is down.

I did that when I moved a world challenge soccer downstairs mostly because it was so damn heavy. Took the PF out too. Bally 6803 are tall too.

    New ramp day! This is the helicopter/bowl ramp assembly for Special Force. I slid this one under the radar since recently acquiring this game. This is my first experience running green, and it happens to be a great match for this game. I am going to make these a bit darker so they show up green in the game a bit better. These will be $95 plus shipping for ramp/helicopter bowl combo. Comes with the flap installed as well. [att=5926791,2172353 caption=""][att=5926791,2172352 caption=""]

    Special Force, Rocket Wont Drop Target Post #1 in topic

    Hi guys, I've got a Special Force and the 3rd drop target on the left hand side wont drop when a rocket is fired. Testing at the coil seems to indicate no power, however that doesn't make sense as power is daisy chained off of coil 3 into 1 and 2 (3 being the main source.) The driving transistor has been replaced along with the coil, any suggestions? Thanks

    Bally's Laguna Beach Post #14 in topic

    Older games came with wooden legs from the factory. Some operators would chuck them out when metal legs became widely available because they wouldn't snap (they do bend, though, with enough force), crackle or pop. The bingos used special metal legs with an extra plate welded behind the leg to prevent twisting. Bingo wooden legs have an extra bolt in them (compared to flipper game wooden legs) to help prevent splitting near the bolt holes. Laguna Beach would have been metal legs from the factory.
