I've 99.9% finished restoring my Haunted House. It's gorgeous (if I do say so myself) and I'm very proud of it. I did give it a bit more of an incline as I like a bit faster play, but I think it's causing me a bit of an issue.
When you first shoot the ball, it pushes up a little wireframe gate and enters the main playfield. However it seems that the gate does not span the width of the lane completely. If the ball doesn't get shot with enough oomph by the player, it hits the bottom of the gate and gets stuck. the only way I can get it out is if I physically stand on the left side of the machine (as viewed from the front) and tilt it on the 2 legs that are on the right of the machine.
I'm thinking that I could create a new gate that spans the width of the lane, it probably would not be too hard, but I'm wondering if someone else has seen this type of thing before?
