What switches trigger the bonus collect on Flash Gordon? When mine is lit and I hit the shooter lane, it doesn't register. I suspect it's because one of my star rollovers needs to be replaced...

I believe that it is a metal switch futher down the shooter lane. It also lowers controls the drop target when you plunge.

Hmm. Interesting. It definitely seems to work off the plunge to lower the drop, just doesn't award bonus on the way back. Will have to do some investigating and ask for some help. Thanks!

Does the rollover switch in the shooter lane have a capacitor across it? It needs one, maybe this is why?

Got back around to trying to figure this out. Is it just the switch at the shooter lane rollover? What's the switch above that with the red disc thing?

Hmm. Just figured out that the drop target in front of the shot isn't registering when hit. I suspect that's the issue.

you ever figure this out? I have the same issue. Ithink those rollover lights are suppoed to scroll when the shot is available but mine dont do that either

Here's the sequence:
* Single "Sentry" target drops
* Rollover lights begin
* When ball goes back down shooter lane, switch triggers, collecting bonus
