Quoted from 85vett:
- 1st - No coin door ball save. It's in the options but when I open the door the ball drains and ends the ball. I like this feature as it prevents you from losing out on a good game if something comes lose. In this case my wife was having a great ball (pretty rare for her) and a bulb came out. She trapped the ball and I opened the door and told her to release the flipper as I have coin door ball saver on. Ball drains and she loses her ball.
Quoted from chuckwurt:
On my GOT the flippers stay powered with the coin door open, so you can hold the flipper up the whole time the coin door is open. It actually happened to me in a tournament too. The ball got stuck in the top lanes. They took the glass off, put the ball on my engaged flipper, put the glass back on, lockdown bar on, locked it, and closed the coin door.
I missed an important note in the first quote. I didn't realize that he instructed her to release the flipper. The ball drained because she released the ball. Not due to the machine killing power.
The second quote makes me very happy as a tournament director and player. That's important information to know.
Thanks for the clarification!
