After upgrading to 9.4h the game is never sensing the Powerball. Switch 26 is good. With a steel ball in the trough, the led is on when the Powerball is in there the led goes out.


Kind Regards,

It can't sense the powerball. It can only sense a steel ball. If a power ball goes by and hits switches before #26 and after, the game thinks a non steel power ball went by.

Go into Tests - Switch Edge - roll a steel ball to the end of the ball trough. If #26 registers on the DMD, that is working.

I guess what I mean to say is. Previously (L3 rom) the game would go into Powerball mode a second or two after the powerball was ejected into the shooter lane. Now with the 9.4h, it just behaves like a steel ball.

Thanks again!

There is a thing in the menus called 'Single Switch'. When you enter this mode, select switch #26 - Trough Prox. Make sure it is OFF, and not Active "(A)".
Empty the trough, and put the powerball in - does the switch change status?

(The ROM upgrade had nothing to do with this - other than resetting you to factory defaults.)

I'll give that a test this evening. Thanks for the idea.
