Hello everyone! I brought home my first machine the other day. It's one most of you are probably familiar with but it was brand new to me. I never really got into pinball when I was a kid, I was a little young for it in the 90's. A friend of a friend was giving it away!! Lucky me! It has 70,971 plays on it and has spent the last 2 decades or so in someones home.
The paint on the cabinet is a little rough but the playfield and backglass are beautiful, I think. And it plays great! I've noticed the swinging target takes a little time to "warm up" before it swings all the way back and forth, i'm not sure if they're all like that. But once it's been on for a few plays it has a much larger range of motion.
Mine doesn't seem to be wired for a conservative mode, unless that's selected by open circuit. And the liberal and medium appear wired together? Maybe I'm misunderstanding it. But we'll cross that bridge if I start breaking 200,000 points on the regular in 3 ball mode. And the number match function I don't fully understand, is it supposed to light up one set of numbers every game? or just every few games? Maybe I have some light bulbs burnt out, but it only occasionally lights up a score to match so I haven't been able to test if it's working.
I'm really looking forward to getting into this wonderful hobby. It's been great fun to play so far and even just the few hours I spent with it last night I've seen my scores and skills improve. Those drop catches to flip up to the "ramp" are tough!!
