    Hi folks,

    Having a couple of issues with my Captain Fantastic and I am hoping you can help me out;

    1) Ball gets stuck after hitting drop down targets. See attached photo

    2) Game will give a free game replay the the following scores: 50,000/51,000 and 81,000. The replays should be at 80,99 and 131K as per photo

    Thanks,
    David

    1. put another rubber underneath the one that is there or you may have to adjust the drop so it does not drop as far
    2 . who cares , lol it's on free play in your house any ways and this way you don't have to add credits

    I just changed my drop targets on Flash Gordon and had the same problem with the targets dropping too far and leaving a gap. Loosen the 2 screws on the back of the switch side underneath and push up the piece they are holding on. It will make sense once you look there...

    1- Yep, as stated by Guard above, the Bally drop targets assemblies usually have a metal adjustable stopper plate at the bottom (under the playfield) to adjust the depth of the drop targets 'fall'.
    You should be able to adjust that stopper plate to have the top of the drop targets aligned/leveled with the playfield surface, when drops are down.

    2- Free-game score adjustments are located in the head, via Jones plugs and a small stapled label showing the free game score levels and wire colors for this.
    You can change the wire color/plug positions to adjust the score replay levels to match your score instruction card on your machine.

    -Sylvain.
