Does anyone that owns X-Files have a tip for removing the alien baby trying to replace bulbs inside the flask however I'm guessing it's not just the two screws on the top of the flask?

Quoted from Atomicboy:

It’s not easy to fish the wire hardness through the plastics and back after, so it’s a tough job without doing a tear down. There is no easy way, as in the top does not simply pop off.
As per someone in this thread already, I’m thinking of putting one of those pop pumper rings in the top, like white, tapped to the GI, then have the two sockets in there with a red or green high power LED each.

Crap that sucks.....but yes I'm thinking of doing the same thing to my alien flask.

Quoted from billsfanmd:

Can someone clarify what the magnet actially does in front of the file cabinet ? Owned this game once. If anyone's selling local to md va pa let me know

Pinsider "NPO" answered this is a thread that was very useful to me when I was having problems with my optos, but his reply was:

2. I do have the manual, and it is a really good read. My magnets do stop the ball - at least when the get to the 2nd opto switch (closer to the filing cabinet). Someone laid down a sheet of mylar/clearcoat for when the magnets stop the ball, so thankfully, it looks like the "future magnet wear" on the playfield has been addressed as my PF has no wear in this area at all .

OOO OOO OOO!!!! I think I know what the first set of optos is for - it just hit me! You know how when you earn "The Truth", the magnets catch the extra balls that go to hit the filing cabinet...? I would be willing to bet that the first set of optos powers a second magnet that catches the extra balls ONLY during "The Truth." I think you're dead on, ssbodyman! Now I gotta go try it and see what happens !

I'm back - yep - that's EXACTLY how it works. The first set of optos does nothing until Truth multiball. At that point once Truth multiball is enabled, the first set of optos enable and they catch the extra balls while Truth multiball is happening!

Both questions addressed and answered - w00t!

Quoted from Atomicboy:

It whips the ball around when hitting the cab. It also holds a ball in mb if you hit it, allowing you to focus more with the other balls. Very well done implementation.

It will hold the ball.....crap something might be wrong with mine then or it is turned down too low
