Aaah, NEAT! Thanks, Pafasa! Nice seein' you around here.
Interesting, EM-Pinman. Is there any work-around to make it light if my machine IS on free play? (I know that would make it lit permanently, right? ...always enjoy more lights than less, though.)
Thanks for the video link! I'll watch that later tonight.
Quoted from MJW:
Thanks for asking this question. My Bally Nitro Ground Shaker is a SS but also has the plastic thing and I always wondering what the purpose was.
Ha-ha! Awesome. Glad to know I'm not the only one.
Can I just poke at it with my finger, or would that be a bad idea? (Again with the noob-ness) P.S. Hi, way2wyrd. Great seein' you around here, too.
Quoted from Rat_Tomago:
If the light doesn't come on with credits then check the bulb because it may be burned out or maybe even the socket is loose.
Even on Free Play? From the above comments it sounds like not. By the way, Rat_Tomago, just have to say, you start the best EM threads. I've been following your "Show us your EM's" thread for some time now, and recently began participating after the purchase of my first. Loved the wedgehead rating thread too.
Yah. A simple label would do the trick. It wouldn't have to be a game specific label either (much like those big arrows pointing out the flipper buttons). Hm.
Quoted from jrpinball:
This light is present on the card tray of many add a ball games that are two plays for a quarter. I remember this from the days when I actually used to PAY to play pinball! When you put your quarter in the game, it would start the first game, and this light would illuminate to remind you that you still had one more game to play. When you hit the start button for your second game, the light would go out. We used to rove up and down the aisles of games in the arcade hoping to find a game with the light on. This would be a free game if you were lucky enough to find one lit.
Cool! Fun (and informative) story, jrpinball!
