Hi does anyone know if the "Captured balls" (going towards the multi ball) on the Simpons Pinball Party are supposed to clear after each game?
Mine currently does not, so if game 1, locks one ball, and game 2 locks another ball, the next game played that locks the third will get the multi ball for just locking 1 ball. These seems pretty unfair if your playing for score against someone and they come into a game with balls already locked in.

Just wondering if that's a setting that can be changed or just the way the game was made.

From my understanding that is how it works, locks carry over from game to game.

You have the choice actually.

You can either have the game carry over the locks from game to game. Or disable this so each game starts again.

Try under Settings > Feature Adjustment > #29... or at least that’s my memory.

There's an option in the settings. I make mine clear out on game over. Locked balls from previous games always seemed weird. Not sure who wants that.

Also I noticed that sometimes I would get couch multiball with only 2 ball captured. Anyone know why that is?

Shooting the garage can award locks - you sure it's not from that?
