Had a customer tell me they originally had a 7-digit display in the credit/match position and that lined up better than a 6-digit display. Should the credit/match display in Star Gazer be a 6-digit or 7-digit? It looked like Orbitor 1 was the only game where 5x 7-digit displays were used.
It also appears there's possible differences in the Alltek ROM versus original MPU board + ROMs. Rob @ Credit Dot Pinball has a set of my RETROFIT displays in a Star Gazer with a 6-digit in the credit/match display. Credits and ball count go on 4x consecutive digits and line up fine with the display window. Yet a buddy of his also with a Star Gazer got it with a 7-digit display in the credit/match position that also seemed to line up better than a 6-digit. Throwing another puzzling issue into the mix, the original MPU had two blank digits between credits & ball count. An Alltek board puts one blank digit between the two. Yet the display windows look like they're setup for 4x consecutive digits (which is what Rob had on his machine).
In all of this weirdness, I'd just like to know if originally in this game a 7-digit display was used in the credit/match and then go from there
The display window in the backglass does seem pretty tight. Looking at pictures online, I'm seeing half of them with cut-off digits.. either because a 6-digit display is in there, display window isn't properly sized or backglass isn't shifted over far enough in the channel.
