Alright ye vampire hunters, I'm back in the best club on pinside. I LOVE BSD and only got rid of the old one for a better game. It is my favorite game ever.

I Have a beautiful game now and here comes the question.

On my left inlane I have a touch of flipper chatter, where the rubber is slightly higher than the lane. I have measured both sides with a caliper and both are exactly the same. I have taken the lane off and on and it will not stay where it needs to. There just isn't much play in the holes to move the lane at all. Wondered if any of you have had this issue and what your fix was. I've never not been able to move the hardware to fix this so I'm curious as to what solutions you all have..

Quoted from aobrien5:


Drop should be up, hitting it should award the skills hot.
No settings I know of.

Lane is lower than the flipper by a hair. May try and move the flipper bushing now.

Guys and Gals I need your help!

I have a glitch that is driving me nuts. I'll try my best to explain it.....It is very specific but this is now the third time its happened, so its real

Ok so I was just in coffin and mist multibal. I had hit multiple loops and castle lock was lit. As I slowly drain balls, I am left with one. This is on ball 3 and has always happened on ball 3. Anyways I hit my castle lock ramp with the last ball and it goes to the castle lock, and BOOM game thinks I drained the ball. Game over-I'm pissed. This is driving me nuts. Game has no errors and the boards are squeaky clean.

Now there is one other error that comes to mind every so often. I'll lock a ball in the castle and sometimes once it drops one out to the lane it automaticly give me a skill shot award...very odd. I cant really think how the two are related, although both involve the castle. All the castle optos work fine in my switch test and I never have switch errors. Any advice will help. My last drac was haunted....no joke..this one appears is not far off

edit: Also I have tried to recreate this with the glass off, It seems to happen when mist is trying to reload


#2434 5 years ago

Ok, I'm still stumped so far. Magnet test works perfect. All my switches work. The long throw optic was what i thought was possibly the culprit, but its working as it should. I have recreated the problem a few times, but i cannot consistently. It seems to get confused when its loading mist and all the balls are draining from a multiball. One time when I got it to think a ball drained, castle was not locked and the game came back as soon as another playfield switch was hit and then mist loaded. Ugh, this game.... I tell ya

#2438 5 years ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

Check your castle Optos, the shooter lane switch and the trough switches.

all checked and working. I went through every switch, and I don't have credit dots on this machine ever. I just played about 10 games and haven't had it happen again. It has to be an intermittent switch in the castle or shooter lane. I agree with that.

#2452 5 years ago

ok, the struggle continues.

I was in mist multiball and a ball hit my drop target in which video was lit. Game goes into video mode and I watch as the second ball just drops down to the trough. Again it could be for some reason the game thinks I've already drained a ball, but WTF? I'm not getting any audio cues that it thinks a ball drained, like before. Again I can't find a faulty switch on this thing....

Quoted from neurokinetik:

That part might just be one of the normal BSD annoyances. Going into video mode when it isn't supposed to (i.e. when a multiball is running) is a known bug in the game.

Thanks, Neuro. I know BSD has some interesting software sometimes. Also does anyone know if its the latest rom that has the fix for for losing your bats score after a double danger on ball 3? I had that come up, I've got a rottendog mpu board with rom L-1 in it.

#2459 5 years ago

Damn, yea I remember watching a papa video, I think it was last years pinburgh and they made mention of having a rom fix. Ugh, somebody needs to get us a decent rom. Is the one papa uses for sale anywhere? I want to use this machine for league play and that would actually workout ok.

I'd use your hands and try to place the ball deeper in the pocket and see if it still wants to run and drop the ball, do you see the proper optos triggered in the switch test menu?
