Hi Guys,

When I play as a single player, I never get extra credit when I reach a threshold score. I have the game set at 30K, 60k, 100K.
BUT, when two players are on the machine, the second player get the credit for the free games. Three free games if he reaches 100K
This tells me that the 0 and 1 wires are in the right places in the jones plug.

Kinda unfair to the first player.

What would cause the second player working right, while the first player gets nothing.

Pull out the player 1 10,000 reel and look for any loose wires going to the circuit board..give them all a gentle tug. If those are ok, can you compare the player 1 to the player 2 10,000 reels to see if the contacts that ride on the circuit board are in the same position. Maybe someone put took the reel apart at some point and put it back together incorrectly.

Hi bonzo71,

Pulled out the score reels and checked all the wiring like you said, 1st player 10,000 and second player 10,000.
Put the reels back in, and WOW, it works OK now. You're a genius!

Thanks for your help
