So I got home earlier than expected and swapped boards. Game booted fine. Yippee!
Then I decided to make an air ball protector if I was going to play it tonight. So an hour later it is a beauty( thanks Dennis for the design it worked perfect!)
Then I decided I would add Mylar to the drain area just in case.
Finally I added a little Mylar to the shooter lane until my protectors arrive tomorrow (hopefully)
I have had the game for 4 days and not played it yet. I clean the balls and put them in push the start button and nothing.
Then I power off and on and think maybe it needs to reset since I added balls...nope it comes up with the same message that the same node board is bad.....FUCK!!!!
I am so pissed off and bummed out! Now I have to wait until tomorrow night to talk to someone while I'm in front of the machine again and will not be able to play until next week now because that's probably when I'll get my next board!
