  • Thanks Guys

    Alright guys, I think I've finally figured out the setup my center is running. I believe we have MP chassis's because last time I was in the back I remember some buttons on the front of it (cycle, sweep run, table run, mechanic's control, etc.). However, the reason we can't get short strike cycles or sweep reverse cycles is due to the fact we have Dacos scoring :S. Apparently, the scoring can tell the machine to cycle once again in the 10th frame however and in no-tap (double cycle). What I'm wondering is if the machine is making its cycle decisions based on the table wiring or the camera. It seems to me like it would be from the table wiring since it can't run a short strike cycle, but I'm not really sure. Anyways, I think you guys got things straightened out for me. Thanks a million. You guys are great.

        Just out of curiosity, cuz i like to know what the Jones' have, what color were the chassis with the buttons on them?
        Metal - original AMF MP
        Black - Omega Tek
        Blue or Maroon - CTI

          It was a metal chassis. On the control panel in the back the only controls were as follows: master on, pit on, sweep on, table on, cycle, 1st ball stepper zero, sweep run, and sweep reverse. Plus, on the top of the panel is a little switch for mechanic's control. On the side of the chassis facing the masking panel are five more buttons: master on, mechanic's control, cycle, sweep run, and table run. I noticed in the image gallery Kat's machines had many more switches on the control panel.
