Anyone familiar with these games?
I have a King Rock (4 player). I've restored this game and one thing keeps bugging me that I cant find a definite answer to.
In the playfield there are green lights that rotate around in a circle when the ball rolls through the spinners and it gives you a bonus. Once if rotates all the way around it gives you 1,000 pints. The question I have is, are those lights suppost to reset after you have drained the ball? As of now, the next ball picks up where the last one left off. If they do reset, does anyone know where I would find this switch?
Thanks
Dave

Just looked at a king cool on utube, looks like the lites just keep movin with the spinner. the vertical row, "bonus" lites do reset for each ball

I guess it does reset, But I cant find where the reset is. I cant tell from the schematic either.

Ha! Yours does reset... the one on utube must be busted.
That lite ring is controlled by a step unit, prob the match unit? guessing.
All the step units reset at startup, and some after each ball. on the schematic, look for the step unit reset coils, you will find it there.

The light ring is controlled by the pesky little "AS" relay under the playfield. Every 10 green lights on the wheel it advances a stepper unit for the bonus. The 1000 point bonus collected for each 10 green lights lit by either spinner should count down & reset every ball. If you hit all four letters of "KING", in the first four balls, then the 2x bonus light comes on. On the final ball, the 2x bonus is lit to start with, & if you hit all four "KING" letters, then the 3x bonus light should come on.
I bought mine as a crusty non-working beater, & did my first EM restore.
The game plays better than it looks!

That game looks fun! I like how the player in the papa vid uses those in-line flippers. Skills.

dasvis... It does all that but it just doesn't go to reset when you drain the ball. (The green light ring that is)...everything else works great. I'll look at it again. Maybe I don't have it adjust properly. Thanks for the info. Presqueisle1..... It is a fun game, but there is no trapping the ball on this game.

There is a contact on the AS relay, that is normally closed for 9 steps and opens on the "0".

Clean and (re-)adjust it, not an easy one to adjust.

Aye. I can attest to that. It's a bitch to get just right. Good thing it's on a mini Jones plug & you can pull it out easily to work with on the bench.
