I’m probably missing something obvious, but how do you turn on extra balls on SMB?
My son has taken an interest in our SMB and was bummed out that when you earn an extra ball, the game does not actually give it to you to play after you drain.
Being skeptical of his claim, I then played it and earned 3 extra balls on my game, each of which showed on the DMD as awarded. But when I finally drained, it didn’t give me any extra balls, but rather kicked it back over to Player 1 (my son), and moved us both on to the next ball. This probably isn’t a tragic thing, given how easy the game is, but I went into the menu to change the settings, assuming it would have clear-cut extra ball settings. As far as I can tell, it really doesn’t, at least not an on/off option. I turned off tournament mode, which was still on from my tournament last year, played a game, but still no extra balls that I was awarded were actually allowed to be played.
I searched, but to no avail. Any help on how I enable extra balls to be played after they are awarded?
