I find myself wondering if my F14 is having some problems. On occasion, I will get a ball release from the lower lock after plunging the next ball. Also, in a multiplayer game, it sometimes presents the bottom and top locks as available, instead of the typical bottom and center. I am also pretty sure I have seen it kick a ball when plunging with the third lock illuminated.

Now this could be normal behavior, or even some code bugs, but I'm wondering if anyone has seen this kind of behavior? The game reports no switch errors or anything like that.

All comments welcome!

Think it's normal. I've noticed on mine that it will try to help me out by kicking out the ball in order to set it up for the flipper with the shot to the most unlit tomcat targets.

Right, it should do that - diverting to either the right or left lock depending on where you need the ball the most. Mine does do that. I am mainly concerned about the occasional kickout from the lower, far right lock, which seems abnormal.
