I recently picked up an Earthshaker and I have been playing it and fixing problems I find so it will be 100% before I shop. I have it working very well now but I have a question about the game logic for those who might know. Here's the issue: when the ball is hit into the shelter and the match up is activated, it pauses while the match up cycles looking for a match. While this is happening, the ball is held until a match occurs. Now seems like when lock is lit and I hit it into the shelter, it almost immediately spits the ball back out and doesn't cycle through the match up. It just awards a prize usually 10000 points. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my machine?
