When my machine is in “attract mode” the pop bumpers flash on and off. I hear a rather loud clicking noise when they go off and again when they come on. Figure this is probably a relay of some sort but is it common to be so load?

With mine only the lower playfield pop bumpers go on and off in attract mode.
Maybe wired wrong on relay, not sure

Ok I found where the noise is coming from. Took short video showing the relay bank and the attrack mode.

Yeah and I noticed that the gate is opening and closing, well trying too as it’s sluggish.

Oh yeah, it has been “tweaked”! Game is a players game but pretty good shape and playing pretty well.... just a few quirks.

Man the gate relay is loud.

Black Hole does cycle the gate in attract mode. This happens because the gate is controlled by a lamp driver and they forgot it when designing the light patterns for attract mode. So your game is just fine.
