Hi, I picked this game up yesterday. No schematic just yet waiting on PBRs availability. So this is a fact finding question for now. This resister (called I think) leg is broken can it just be soldered back on? Also ipdb does not show backbox internals So is this original? Any idea why this is used if it is original?

Two resistors are called for on the schematic on the Balls Played unit:

They're in circuits for alternating relays, or relays that will be active for an extended period of time (as long as the Balls Played unit stays in one position). The resistors may be there to reduce the arcing across the Balls Played Unit snow shoes when the unit advances and the circuit to the active relay coil is broken. There's one on the 0-9 unit too apparently for the same reason.

You should be able to just solder the resistor back in place, possibly after checking its value first. The game will probably work without the resistors with the added risk of additional arcing.

That resistor is not original. It's bigger than 2 watts. The resistors in the schematic are mounted on the back of the balls played unit disc.

Here’ the back side. Looks like there is still 1 original and then the other big green one (Type 10-C. Ohms 5M)
