I am 100% positive that I owned this game two years ago. So, it just doesn't start a game?
Quoted from tbmi:
The top wire on the connector that plugs into the reset board is loose from the "chip" that it plugs into. Can you tell me where it should go? Thanks!
Don't plug in the reset board! It will NOT prevent or help the game to work, in any way. Wish I would have thrown it away when I owned that game.
If the game is booting, all you need to do is add a credit and press the start button. That game was not on free play and as far as I know, it can't be placed on free play. Also, this particular game (Victory) must have two balls present in the trough to start, even though it does not have multiball.
Are you certain the game just doesn't need credits? Does the display come on when you power it up?
If it works intermittently, you could have a low voltage issue. I did however, reflow all the pins on all the power connectors when I owned the game.
You may just have a flakey connection near the coin door as well. I remember that part of the wiring in the game being kind of being hacked up.
