I am running a Ni-Wumpf Rev E in a Gottlieb System 1 (Asteroid Annie). Game functions perfectly until I try to access diagnostic sub menus. Here's the scoop.

If I press the inner coin door switch, I can toggle through all the diagnostic menu options. However, as soon as I press the credit button to enter a sub-menu, the game freezes. What I mean by this, is that pressing the inner door switch or the credit button yields zero results. The game is simply stuck at that menu option. If I reboot either at the reset switch on the board or main power button under the cab, I get the same results.

Again, game plays perfectly...I simply cannot change any options, test any switches, etc.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

I had one doing some crazy things like that, and it ended up being because I had fried one of the socketed buffer chips. I had a short into the switch matrix, from the solenoid that ran the spinning target on a Close Encounters.

Personally I would try emailing Ace, the gentleman that works on them with Ni-Wumpf... you can get the email off their website, he's incredibly helpful and ultimately can repair it for you inexpensively if it ends up being something on the board.

+1 for emailing Ace, he was pretty responsive when i've had to contact him in the past for issues.

Ace got back to me and explained that the board was not originally designed for Asteroid Annie as it is a one player game. Hence, the outputs have nowhere to display once in the diagnostics.

Sorry about the delayed update, but wanted to close out the thread properly.
