My daughter was playing with a uv flashlight and noticed this on my JD. anyone else out there looked into the secret codes? I read somewhere there were checks to keep distributors in their lane. Share your secret codes here!

There's an interesting blurb about it on the TZ IPDB page:

Nice find, maybe thats where i picked up the distributor tidbit. I wonder if it’s random or in all games of the era. Not on my wh2o or fish tales (1992)
Could be it started right around the time they updated the sound card (TZ)

In the era of internet sales, the reason is even more passe than Pat Lawlor's comments. He said any pin sale these days is a good one so there's no limiting a distro's sales territory anymore. (Probably he said that during Pinball's downturn). But with internet sales, being able to sell to anyone anywhere, is it enforced some other way now or is it, distros for themselves?

I've had it on TAF, TZ, and DW.

My Popeye also. I think I've seen BSD with it too.

No selling to anyone anywhere in Canada. The two distributors have territory and will not sell across it.

They could do that back in the day, but now they can't stop chipping? Unbelievable.
