Hey gang,

My BK is set on free play and while playing a game, if I press the start button it will either add another player or reset to a new one player game.

Essentially if a new player can be added, the start button adds a new player. If all four players are active then the game will reset to a new one player game when the start button is pressed.

If I’m on ball two of a one player game and hit the start button, then it resets to a new one player game. Instead of adding a new player.

Is this normal operation for the free play setting on BK?

Hate to bump the start button during a game and reset the score...not ideal!

Any thoughts on what may be the issue?

That's normal behavior on the early solid states. While still on ball 1 the start button will add players. On any ball after and any player the start button will start a new game.

Thanks for the clarification on this!

Somehow it felt like it might be “normal” even though I don’t like possibility of accidentally resetting the game midstream.

Appreciate the quick reply slim64!

Time to buy a “new” one

Back in the day when you were playing on location and some little kid would walk up and press the credit button and would end your game and start a new game.

Hey there! Got a moment?
