I looked through the manual but didn't find anything.

Is it possible to disable the Balrog? Does the software compensate? Does it auto-compensate - i.e. alternate scoring if the Balrog hasn't been hit after x number of games?

Thanks. No, I wanted to disable it altogether, not the consolation one.

It's broken currently and I'm not sure if it will get fixed by the techs for a tournament this Sunday. I was hoping maybe the ring or spinner shot might get used instead as software compensation.

It swings out okay, but doesn't register hits. I checked the obvious stuff like broken or loose wires. I think maybe the microswitch might be bad.

It's not my game, though, but the location's game. My guess is if they don't have the switch on-hand it won't get fixed before Sunday.

It's not a huge problem. It's for the side tournament and I just need to sub in a different game if I can't use it.

Yeah, I get nuthin in the switch test. Also, if this is a standard cherry style microswitch it should make a clicky sound. This one doesn't.
