On the Atlantis game you have to save 3 divers. (each diver is a ball) once all three are saved in the mini sub it starts multibal. Inorder to get the ramp to lower so you can load the sub you have to hit a set of three targets (each diver has different targets). When i start a game it already thinks that the first 2 sets of 3 targets have been hit, and the sub ramp is already in the down position. any ideas why? i cant find any reason why its doing this.

From the manual, page 2-16, Item 5:

"For the first fifty games, the player has to qualify for all orange, white, and yellow targets. Thereafter the game will check for the number of times Multi-Ball was earned. If this value is less than 16%, the game automatically qualifies the orange and white lock arrows. If the value is between 16% and 33%, it qualifies only the orange lock arrow. The system re-evaluates with every tenth game played."

Do you think this is what is going on?

Yup im an idiot. I read through the manual before and never noticed that. Thanks for the quick answer.

And good information for other Atlantis owners that may not have know that.

Don't beat yourself up. I have an Atlantis and I did a search of the name on RGP a while ago so I could read some comments about the game. I happened to remember that someone mentioned this "feature". Otherwise I don't think I would have found it in the manual either.

One last question, on the lower right corner of the power board theres a ceramic resistor. its getting very hot, is that normal? I figure not, but figured id ask.
