Quoted from Coyote:

No purpose, other than a test point, and/or a break in the wire.
(Since it's one of the longest wires, the automated wire-harness
machines may have needed something to continue that line.)

having issues with (I think) game adjustments:

I use the latest 9.4CH rom and do not manage to ever get an extra ball awarded:
* "lite extra ball" door panel is always lit right from the beginning
* Robot shots just award the camera

the game is NOT set to tournament mode

gone through all the settings-any ideas which of the settings could cause that behaviour?

Quoted from Marvin:

EB works fine on CH. is there a particular EB that you are not getting or in general?

hm...seems there is different opinions on that topic.

I do not own that machine for a long time and recently changed to the 9.4CH ROM.
I do not get any extra ball at all (might be related to no being a good player) or maybe some adjustments not being correct...but could not find them

IIRC with the old ROM the game came with I could at least lite the extra ball insert at the lock ramp.

Seems I finally found it: A1-03 max E.B. count was set to 0

Looks ok now...havent tested much

just for the records-might help someone at some point:

my TZ was driving me crazy with following sympthoms:

- ending the game altough ball was still in play
- firing a coil (ball feeder?) during game in play
- sometimes feeding 2 balls into shooter lane

after some investigations and struggles I cleaned the ballthrough, readjusted the switches but finally it seems the balls were manetized which caused the balls to get "stuck" in the through and not moving to the far right end...all the issues were gone after exchanging the balls with some new low magnetic ones...

Quoted from Parker_tz:

On my Twilight zone about half the time I skill shot the ball into the rocket it bounces out. It does not ever launch it just hits the ball Guide and falls out. It is nothing to do with the adjustable ball Guide because I set it right in the middle of the hitchhiker under the mini playfield. Does any one have any tips of how to fix it?

had the same issue. Added a very thin rubber sheet (maybe something like a bike tire inner tube works?) to the adjustable ball guide and got rid of that issue...

Quoted from lanfeust:When the ball goes into the rocket kick out, does it go straight to the camera when ejected or not? thanks.

not to the camera but the "hole" below (is it the hitchhiker?)

I see www.pinball.center sells various pieces.

DonĀ“t expect too much from those...they are often poor quality...

Go to "switch test" and see if the switch is registering...test with the ball also not only with your finger.
No resitor on the switch but a diode. 1N4004 or similar...basically any standard diode will do the job

Quoted from Pugsley:

On another topic related to The Twilight Zone... I have been sorting videos for the past month and 2 have caught my attention. Surprisingly by the same artist:

Has anybody used the first song in a game before as a replacement for the main theme? Could go a long way towards a Techno version of the game if all new SFX were added.

They were my heroes when I was young
