I'm trying to track down some schematics (and manual, if it exists) for a newly acquired machine (Williams Space Odyssey).

Someone pointed me to the IPDB, which then pointed me to Planetary Pinball to purchase.

I contacted Planetary Pinball but they are telling me they don't sell them.

Can anyone help with this, please?

Here is the manual for Space Mission, the four player version. A lot will be similar between the games ...

https://www.ipdb.org/files/2253/Williams_1976_Space_Mission_Instruction_Manual_Jan_1976_no_schematics.pdf

If you look on the Space Mission IPDB page, there are other files that apply to both.

I don't see any reference to Planetary on the IPDB page for Space Odyssey- where are you seeing that?

It's a pop up that comes up before the schematic... encourages purchase of the documents and says that Planetary Pinball is licensed distributor for Bally/Williams documentation

I've never seen such a thing. Of course, I use a popup blocker... you should too.

Thx for the responses & links.
I have already downloaded this PDF from the IPDB website.
Unfortunately, it's a little too cumbersome to try to follow this on my laptop - too much scrolling up/down, left/right.

I was really looking at purchasing a full sized paper version.

Alternately, if I had to I would print it out on several sheets of paper and tape them together. I can't seem to be able to do that though - it only prints 1 page with a portion of the schematic or the entire schematic "fit to page", which is ridiculously small.

Staples, or whatever your local office store is, can print you a large sized printout for something like $6.

Thx.
That's what I thought. On my way.

While I'm here, I want to ask something else...
I need the schematics to try to track down a wire that's disconnected on my machine.
It would be easier to find someone with the same (or similar) model machine, to just send me a photo.
Is there any way to find other members who have this type of machine and may be willing to do this for me?
Not that I don't love poring over schematics, but...

Just ask for a specific area that you need a pic from.

You can go to the map of owners and see who has one-- send them a PM. But to be honest, it's usually not difficult to figure out, even without a schematic. Unless your wiring loom has been pulled apart, there's usually only a couple of inches of wire when one comes loose-- you've got a very small target area to figure out where it goes. Pics?

Pinball Resource should have the schematic for $16.50 plus shipping.

I tend to agree. Based on the length of the wire, it had to have come from the .10 cent relay. I can't see any obvious terminal where it appears to have broken off. Noteworthy is the short green jumper wire which has been soldered to the 2 original yellow wires (with an "open air" connection).
I'm thinking that it may have come from this same terminal but thought it would be more prudent to verify instead of just connecting it there to see what happens.
