This isn't documented in the game rules, nor can I find a video that shows this...

On your Party Animal, what happens at the end of your multiball? Does it go back to regular play, or does it remain stuck in "wipeout" waiting for you to restart the multiball? I'm not clear on what it's *supposed* to do, but mine is stuck in "wipeout" for the rest of the game.

Mine definitely goes back to normal play.

Quoted from Izzydorio:

Thanks! Any chance you could post a brief video of the end of a multiball doing this? Mine otherwise continues to play and score just fine, so I don't think I have a ROM issue. It's unlikely, but maybe there was a software revision at some point that I don't have?

Sure, I've sent you one in a private message.
Did you ever trying resetting to factory default?
I've had some strange issues with my Party Animal which were resolved after resetting to factory settings...

For future reference in case anyone runs into this issue.

The factory *default* causes this issue. It makes the status of the P A R T Y A N I M A L ! letters and multiball status carry over from ball to ball, player to player, and game to game. By changing this so they don’t carry over, the problem went away.
