New to the club and so far love this game. I am having some issues, which I've tried to search and find answers in previous posts, so please excuse me if I'm repeating here -
Game plays great, getting all switches to work, the head moves, different video modes, the multi ball works (diff modes) and Frank even throws the balls as he should.
A couple of issues -
Sometimes while playing - it just shuts down and goes dead (GI is still on, the head still moves, but all else is dead) I do notice the "Blanking" light goes out at this time in the CPU.
Sometimes while playing - all scoring works, video modes pop up, but while playing the screen keeps popping up with the sega pinball, name of the game and version & year...it then switches back and forth while playing. (Scoring, video mode, or this title shot - all while playing. Weird??)
Sometimes while playing (almost all the time) I hear "Frankenstein" - then when ever I hit my right flipper (not the left) it interrupts Frank, and he starts to say it over...every time I hit the right flipper....like it's re-setting?
I did disconnect the display and it ran thru all 5 balls, full game, no issues....so, from other posts, it may be the 5v issue and the display is pulling too much power, causing these issues?
I did order new ROM's and the cable per that noted bulletin (from the power board to the display, but looking at the machine last night, I think someone has already put in this cable...maybe they didn't install it correctly?)
Is this my issue - the 5v problem I've read about? If so, what are my other options to get this working correctly?
He's "almost" alive!
