I'm rebuilding a Barracora and ask if anyone can tell me if there is a connection between the top left eject hole opening mechanism and the left orbit Barracora loop exit gate. The picture below shows the area and it looks like maybe something should activate the non return gate on the orbit exit. Or maybe they just used a gate wire with the hook end and nothing goes into it so the orbit exit gate is always one way?

Thanks for any help.

Quoted from woz:

I don't know of any other games that used the dual action lane change feature - are there any?

Cosmic Gunfight has two sets of roll overs (X, Y on left flip) and (1, 2, 3 on right flip) for lane change and another target bank (A, B, C on both) that changes on flipper buttons.

Just for a bit of a thread bump here is a picture of the apron from the Barracora project I'm cleaning up.
Before and after shots, gee I wish people wouldn't put stickers on the apron.

But, for interest sake it looks to me like some artwork was left off where the purple arrow points?

Spinner decal question.

So I'm finishing up the rebuild of a project Barracora and purchased spinner decals. Both decals are identical, which is a bit unusual as you often get an animation effect by having differing images. My question is which way were they placed? Can someone have a look at their game and tell me.

There's two options;
- one places the decals so that from the players view as it spins the fish stays the right way up (you put the reverse side decal upside down to achieve this).
- the other way has the players view as it spins the fish swaps left to right directions and swaps upside down

The picture below shows what the two options would show to the player as yhey watch the spinner go around.

Any comments welcome - thanks.

Quoted from vec-tor:

I believe the second image is deferent and that it is to be a mask out of the first image.
But it was printed upside down. So the effect would have been the fish face strobing off and on.

Thanks - that's interesting and makes sense but the repo decals I have (complete with licensed laser effect sticker) are both identical as seen in my picture a few posts earlier.

In switch test with no balls installed thump your fist onto the playfield and see if any register. They may just be very_ close and vibrations sets them off.
