Hey Guys,

Been playing my BTTF Pin (never played this game before) and I had a question about the "special when lit" feature. I notice after I keep hitting the green DOC targets on the right, the bonus multiplier increases. It eventually gets to the RED 6X LITE SPECIAL...

However, I am not sure what to do or what happens next. I assumed the left and/or right drain line SPECIAL WHEN LIT would light up and I would get something special, but the drain line inserts don't come on (and yes, they have working bulbs).

What am I missing? Maybe they don't have anything to do with each other but if that's the case, when DO the drain line SPECIALS come on?

Thanks,
Jim

Yeah I checked all of that, but I think I know what it might be. I have the game set up to not award credits, but to award extra balls. Maybe because I am not awarding credits, there is no reason for a SPECIAL WHEN LIT?

Im new to Pinball machines and have been learning but thats my guess?

Take the glass off and play around until you get it?

Hey Guys,

I had some time to play around with this. I took the glass off and went into test mode to ensure that all switches and targets are working.

I also ran a game manually pressing switches to activate the 6X multiplier award (which also says lite special).

In doing this, the “6X lite special” lights up nice and red, however the “special when lit” outlane lights Still do not lite.

I know the lights are not dead as they display just fine in attract mode, and I have tried switching the setting to BOTH, SLING, and FLIPPER.

I am out of ideas...could it be something Software Or MPU related? I honestly don’t even know what supposed to happen when you do get a special when lit award....

Jim
