I have a Gottlieb Stargate for some time now and I think it's a very nice game. Usually during a good game I end up getting around 400.000.000 or 500.000.000 points. Needless to say that my game is set to "Very Hard".
Last week I had a problem with my left guard not going up when I hit it. I fixed it (spring was attached the wrong way, which shot the fuse). Fixing it, I ended up lost in the labyrinth of the Gottlieb Game Settings and I thought it might be fun to lower the settings from "Very Hard" to "Hard".
After doing that I played my first game. During game play I heard the knocker and the DMD showed "BILLIONS". Right after that, my score went from somewhere in the 60 million to 5 billion! Not sure if this was a glitch, I tried another game with the same outcome: a GC of over 6 billion points...
Does anybody know what causes this very strange score behavior? Did I enable some creepy feature that multiplies your score by 100? This really messed up my score table
