Quoted from MrDo:
Who does this??
Anyone who has a pin that has overly sensitive switches going off that wants to find which ones they are.
Quoted from gweempose:
Any particular switches I should be looking at, Keith?
I'd try the witch first, then any "1-point" switches. Failing that you'll probably have to resort to banging the playfield. If you ever happen to catch how many points you have when the ball autolaunches, that would help quite a lot.
All the time, though usually it's with whitewoods.
Thanks for the pics and updates. The video screen is here to stay. This will limit JJP to movie themes but that's not a bad thing. Instead of an Attack From Mars they could do a War of the Worlds or Plan B From Outer Space. I'm an old guy (my first machine was a flipperless Spot Pool) and have seen the progression to flippers, then to voice, then to dot matrix. Thanks to JJP for taking pinball to the next level - I believe they put their heart and soul in this machine and it will show. The old Williams/Bally pins had an unexplainable solid feel to them, as if they weren't made from parts but carved from a single large oak - this is what I'm looking for again. It's hard to explain but some of you know what I'm talking about.
Quoted from Sunfox:
Have you thought about adding a "sensitive switch test"? What this would do is start a diagnostics mode that monitors all switches in their present state, and then automatically fires off a whole bunch of solenoids in sequence to 'shake' the game, recording a list of any switches that trip however briefly when they shouldn't be.
Would've been handy on my BDK, which ended up having a couple ultra-sensitive switches that randomly fired slings and the auto-kicker for no reason during gameplay.
go into switch test mode and shake the pin
