Hey everyone, lurker here for a while, was finally able to secure my first pin, Super Mario Bros. I've been slowly working my way through issues, and I just have one more that I can't figure out. It's very specific too, which makes me think that it's something on a PCB somehwere.
In a nutshell, if I activate a castle by Spelling S-U-P-E-R, but at the same time activate multiball, the ball in the left upkicker just stays in the hole, while another ball is shot onto the playfield. Playing with the other ball seems to work fine, but shooting into the castle, or draining the ball does nothing. It just continues to sit with "Multi-Ball" Displayed on the DMD, and the ball stuck in the left upkicker.
1. Light the Multi-ball light by activating 1-2-3-4
2. Spell S-U-P-E
3. Shoot the ball into the left upkicker to finish spelling S-U-P-E-R
Regular multiball works okay, it's only when you do it the specific way I mentioned above. Is this a known bug? Or is this something broken on my game specifically? Not sure where to start looking. Any help would be appreciated!
