Hi Danny - Nice job with the pictures!!
Things got better with the Brooklyn after I sent the original email -- I
replaced the fried resistor and the zener seemed
close enough (voltage was somewhere between 12 and 13 volts [I forget the
exact spot but it was about a volt less than checking
the same spot on the Continental circuit board]). It seems to do 1
ball and 3 ball just fine, and I can trick it
into giving me a game of 5 ball. For 5 ball I have to have an extra
ball (#14) in the trough, and leave it there until I
shoot ball #5. Then it feeds another ball and I have
to grab it before #5 drops into a hole. If I time everything
right, it continues like normal and lets me buy extra balls, etc.... If
I try to play 5 ball with the correct number of
balls, after I shoot the first ball the number lines go back and forth and it
never feeds ball #2. Maybe I have a bad trough switch?
I noticed something else on the Continental - when I was replacing rubber
rings, I left the power on. After a while with no input, it went into an
attract mode with several different patterns of sweeping the lights, then it
would go back to the screen as it appeared before attract mode kicked in,
then after a delay it repeated everything.
They are both playable and pretty fun!!!
