Hey everyone,

I've had my pins folded up for ~2 years while we were finishing out basement.

Figured I would start with Pin*bot trying to get it up and running first as I knew there were a few issues. I tracked down and fixed most things but I am stuck on these two:

1) The right sling shot switches do not work. The scoring switch does work and the coil fires in test mode. These switches are not part of the switch matrix so I am a bit lost on what to look for.

2) I have all the sound effects but I do not have any music. I previously replaced all the eproms with new ones. I swapped out the sound board with one I had when I had another System 11 in the house and the sound board works fine. I have read that some of the sound is generated on the MPU as well as the soundboard in pinbot so I probably have an issue somewhere on the MPU.

For what its worth, For several years neither of these were an issue and the game operated 100%

Any help would be appreciated

1.) Port 1J18 on the MPU is for the special solenoid switches. Also, there is a bit more detail on Pinwiki.


2.) How many bongs are your hearing at startup?
