Hello GB owners
It is my understanding that on a GB Premium when the ghost lights up on the pathway in front of the hologram area, a ghost will appear (cat, angry looking goblin, etc.). This is in addition to the other holograms that appear other times in the game depending on the situation (Slimer after you scare him off, Scoleri Bros during SFM, "Super Jackpot", etc.). While I've only had it about a month, I've noticed on multiple occasions inconsistencies on when the hologram lights up. Sometimes it will not show one of the "regular" ghosts in the hologram when the ghost bulb on the playfield is activated, but despite this issue it will still show the Stern logo during attract mode, and it did show Slimer during the games I played after seeing the issue.
I thought I was going crazy...so the first time I noticed this I cycled the power and the hologram was then lighting up as expected and I thought nothing of it. However, now I don't think I'm crazy anymore since I noticed again multiple times afterwards. Cycling the power seemed to "fix" it again.
I'm hoping someone will tell me that there is a rule I'm not understanding, or maybe the LCD screen when it gets hot there is coding that lets it rest a bit? I did upgrade to the Bobby Brown/H&H remix doing a "quick install" over the standard recent 1.17. Perhaps I should do a full install...but I would prefer not to if unnecessary as I don't want to lose the high scores.
