    My match lights are constantly on during gameplay. Every pinball game I have ever played shows the match feature only after the last ball is drained. Is it normal for this game to show the match feature while the game is being played?

    The match lights shouldn't be on. If you PM me your email, and email me a copy of your schematic I can help you.

    I would but I don't have a copy of the schematic.

    Quoted from 04barb:

    I would but I don't have a copy of the schematic.

    Then I recommend
    1) Buy a schematic
    2) Until it arrives, check the switches on the Game Over relay if there is one.

    Solution: I forgot to mention that one light in the backbox was not working, (which lights the queen). I assumed the wire broke somewhere so I soldered a new wire on the light socket and tied it into the other backbox lights that were constantly on. After I did that is when I noticed the match lights were constantly on. Come to find out the only time the 'queen' light' goes on is after the game over mode. I de soldered the new wire I but on and the problem is fixed.

    Run that one by me again.

    The only light that comes on in the backglass at Game Over on my DAC is the card that the King is pulling out of his robe??

    The Queen is always illuminated during play and at game over.

    One of our games must have been modified (might be mine as I never looked at the wiring in the backbox very closely?)

    If either of you want, I would be happy to take a pic of mine to let you see if it matches one of yours.

    DC, You could start by telling us what light behind the backglass comes on at game over.

    Is it the queen, the card in the King's hand, or some other?
