So this beauty came in. What a cool game. And only 32 controlled lights not working, lol. U5 was no good on the driver board taking out all the associated transistors with it. Probably the most linear pin I have ever played

Quoted from TwoHeartedMale:

guys..... help.... i just got a silver slugger and its was kind of a nightmare. i told him i needed to remove the head completely to fit it in my car. and he didn't have the keys to the head so he proceeded to remove the entire wire harness from the cabinet. i mean he disconnected every single wire and molex connection, coin door, flippers, volume nob, knocker, everything. he thought he could remove head that way. after he found out that wasn't gona work he left it like that. drove home and got his drill, duh, and opens the head. then disconnected every cable from the head and doped it in the box. now, i have just a completely loose wire harness i don't have a clue how to put this back and in what order. good news is this machine is in amazing shape, super clean. still has all the label on the molex connectors. but after looking at it i don't think they just match up. i don't see any matching connectors with the same code, but some with very similar codes. i'm gona need alot of help to put this back together. anything would help, including pics and what not. thanks guys.

I've made some headway with the wiring of my silver slugger, but I could use some help. I could really use some close up photos of the connectors on the slam tilt(coin door), flippers(both), start button, initials buttons, both tilts on left side, speaker, and power supply. I need to verify some things before I go forward. Thank you fellow Gottlieb Guy's!

got a question about free-play. On my Rescue 911, the only way I can figure to set it for free-play is to go into tournament mode. The problem with that is it only shows the words "tournament mode" on the display, the high-score is gone. Is there any way to get free-play without tournament mode?

I just do the "credit fake" method, which can be done with most any game. Set the earned replay credit score as low as possible, then add a bunch of credits manually. Whenever you start a new game, very quickly you earn a credit, replacing the one you just used.

If you have the door open it will show the tournament mode screen. Once the coin door is closed, it should go into normal attract mode and show the high scores ect. If yours is staying on the tournament mode screen, then maybe your door switch is not working

Just joined the club on Wednesday evening by buying myself a cactus jacks. It plays well, but needs a good clean and some paint touch ups on the cab. My kids love the theme, cacti and music, and I find it quite fun too. It currently sits in the garage as I clean it up.

Just got a rubber kit from pbr and the tapered ramp Post rubbers are about a 16th of an inch shorter than the ones that were on this game. Can anybody shed some light on this? I would think he sent me the right stuff but they’re not a good fit, they either leave a space at the bottom or the top on the post. Hopefully I’m describing this OK and/or someone has seen this before?

The original looks to be in decent shape, maybe just turn it around?

I think that's normal. My Street Fighter has the same gap on all the ramp entrance post rubbers, then again maybe all of mine are wrong. You could use a razor blade to cut a slice off of the old one and stack the two on the post if it bothers you. The part the ball hits will be new rubber.

I’d email PBR and let them know. They have always been very helpful, and want to make sure I get what I've been after.

Is there a place to purchase or buy rom revision updates for system 3 games? Since Gottlieb pretty much got rid of people sharing their roms is there any alternatives? I am would like to upgrade to the most recent revision. Also looking towards the future for preservation as well. What if I had a eprom go dead, would I pretty much be up the creek without a paddle? If so it would probably be worth it, for me to pull the eproms and make copies of them for my own personal use to preserve the game.

Yea, I'd like to find someone who can change game rules on my Gottlieb. I'd like to remove some scoring exploits.
