So, I've been having a recurring issue with my Triple Strike where suddenly it will stop scoring correctly. I'm not sure what is triggering it, but it also seems to resolve itself if I play it enough, almost like something gets knocked back into position or something. When this issue arises it comes with a couple of problems, so they are probably related in some way. First, the 1,000 point reel won't always roll over, so it will look like my score basically drops back to zero. Second, it doesn't appear to give the 10,000 points for the strike bonus when the ball drains. Third, if I end up getting a free ball, it gets stuck in free ball mode endlessly and I will have to just start a new game to get out of it. Those are the main issues i've noticed.
Unrelated, but I also need to make new score cards since my game didn't come with them, and I noticed that they typically have multiple scores on one score card. Is there a reason why there are three different scores? Would you earn a free game for hitting each of the scores listed, or is it just meant to show various possible settings and should I mark the one I have the machine set to?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
