You are correct. Did some investigating today 2 are backbox. Then 1 for everything south of the pop bumper and 1 for everything north of pop. Ordering enough sockets to redo all the gi. Going to do all of the wht/yel string now and when I start having issues with the wht/vio I will redo that whole string. I was also thinking about how some of the GI could be moved to the top of the playfield for better light coverage. Example the gi that is where the 1-6 stand up targets are, do 3 of them under the aircraft carrier then throw one in between of the kickouts and pop bumper. Should produce more playfield light and would still be covered by plastics so cant see, My test LED came in also. Man oh man what a difference they make. I did 5 in the backbox and quickly realized my translight is waaay better than I thought. Going to go with 2 smd frosted naturals with a few 4 smd in some select spots. Its almost like it highlights the spot a bit with the 4smd without looking weird from being a different color.

So first thing on the list today. Anyone willing to vouch for me so I can post in Hot Topic areas. Second ran into a weird issue with the F-14 and not sure how to start diagnosing it. There have been a good few times where I thought I earned an extra ball but never received it. Now I think I read before that their is a way to lose your extra ball on F-14 but not sure what triggers it. The issue ive been having is in a multiplayer game if I hit the yagov kicker and the ball drains the game says flight insurance but it still goes to the next player. So im losing my ball save in multiplayer. In single player if I drain I get the ball back no problem. Thanks in advance

So got tired of endlessly working on the jjp potc I decided to give a little love to the F-14. Got prolly 80% of machine done in led now . Put in a order to get the gi string replaced (why lower Playfield is dark) and replacing both flipper cab switches. Also added a couple spotlights to the back area.
