Is anyone having the same problem I am? In multi-ball a ball always gets trapped underneath the ramp causing me to have the longest multi-ball ever. Has anyone figured out how to fix this minor issue on an otherwise awesome, fast, funny, exciting pin? To be more clear it gets trapped behind the ramp that moves up and down.

It's only been five minutes. Am I being impatient
"Bump"

You say trapped, I say free "SOOOOOPERRRRRR JAAAAAAACKPAWWWWWT!"

It's pretty much going to happen no matter what, I would bet. If it's trapped and you want to deliberately free it and you still have another ball in play, shoot the right orbit. That should tell the game to raise the ramp momentarily, if I'm not mistaken.

It's not really a problem that has a fix it's just that kind of ramp system is going to do that every so often....especially with 6 balls flying around.

Agreed, this is normal operation when you have multiball all hell breaks out and sometimes you get stuck balls. If you can get control of all the balls let the machine time out and it will let it go as well... Enjoy it is a great game...

Technically WWFRR is theirs, as it was Data East....

Doesn't Avengers LE have a 6 ball?

Pretty sure IJ4 had an 8 ball multiball. Always fun!

Thanks guys for your comments and I agree. I just wanted to make sure that I was not cheating with my scores

I think the game is really fun and believe it or not I actually don't mind the music that came stock. It makes sense for the era of Mustang that you are playing.

Supposed to but I don't recall if it ever got implemented in.

OP - If this is happening a lot then you may want to check that SW45 is not being flaky on you. If it only happens in MB it's probably just the game getting confused but if it happens outside of MB then that may be the cause as that is what tells the game a ball has gone that way and the ramp needs to be lifted.

I will keep an eye out for that switch. Thank you

Sorry for reviving an old thread but this has been bugging me for some time.

I see threads where people are writing their own patches into software (Road Show for example); couldn't someone add some code to the game so that if the ball rolls over the left orbit switch #45, the ramp will lift briefly to allow the ball to pass, and then drop back down?
