Default: "Yes".

The 10B Snack attack bug, fixed.

255 bumper hits to light Super jackpot bug, fixed.

1x “maxed” playfield multiplier bug, fixed.

Bonus-x calculation corrected to be as indicated by the game. 1x/2x/4x/6x/8x/10x.
Bonus base value raised by a factor-3.

A bug where Move your car was not running properly after a multiball, fixed.

A bug where Snack attack is incorrectly promoted on the right ramp count-up display, fixed.

When tournament play selected: The first Playground award is Unlimited millions. Player individual.

When tournament play selected: Snack bar awards follow a fixed pattern. Player individual.

When adj. A.2 20 "T-play S.B. Mill." is set to "Yes":
Before a multiball has been played: F, L or M letter once (if needed and in that order). Then random points ones.

The 10M, 20M and 30M indicators are brought to life.
The Super scoring mode offers a one time only award on the left inlane.
10M, 20M or 30M based on timing.

A bug where the European region installs the hard pre-set on a factory reset, fixed.

Adjustment A.1 21 "Language" is limited to "English".

Adjustment A.1 28 "Min. vol override" defaults to “Yes”.

Why it rocks

Randomisation removed on many accounts for better luck/skill balance in competitive play.
The lucrative Unlimited millions mode may now be play for strategically.
A lot of bug fixes.
No more waiting for game scores to show.
New Super scoring sub-feature for the never-used left inlane score indicators.


The Snack bar Unlimited millions, after a multiball played, is any multiball played.
When selected, the Unlimited millions mode is victory laps for the multiball.
Random points ones are: Popcorn (1M), Hot dog (2M), Hot pretzel (4M), Ice cold pop (4M) and Hamburger (5M).

The incremented bonus base value is to compensate that the max bonus-x is reduced from the incorrect 32x to 10x.
High X bonus is by this a similar payoff. Low X bonus will get a boost.

Feature adjustement A.2 3 "Multiball" is of no use.
At least as of rev. L-4, the game is not awarding multiball at the Snack bar mystery.

The Super scoring mode left inlane award is also given when the inlane is made on a ramp shot return.

Excellent work, thanks for sharing! Any chance you can work on NGG next and fix the wheel awards so that they award the correct item?

Thanks. I have NGG very dear to me. But the issues with that one are plentiful and complicated. If we source one for the pinball spot I co-run, maybe. Extensive play testing seems mandatory.

thanks for sharing, sounds interesting, now just need to find someone to program a chip

what was added in version 1 that still carried over to v2 that was not mentioned?
