Hey all. Mike here. Trying to repair a Baywatch for a friend. It had a lot of issues when he got it and I've got everything licked except for one last problem. It's not major, but it does make the game someone incomplete, playability wise. Here's the issue.
The flipper-controlled options don't work. What I mean by that is each time you start a new ball, you have the option to choose which lane you think the ball will go down for the skill shot and you choose the lane by using the flippers...but it doesn't work.
Same thing during the video modes. You have to use the flippers to move the rescue swimmer/character left or right to avoid obstacles and such...but it doesn't work.
Same thing when you get a high score. You have to use the flippers to enter your initials...but they don't work.
The flippers themselves work fine for regular functionality. It's just the above type of situations where they don't do what they are supposed to. I have done everything I can think of including slaving in a new MPU thinking it was some sort of logic issue...but to no avail. The problem remains.
This is the last issue that I'd like to get solved for my friend. He's anxious to get the machine 100% up and running. If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks - Mike.
