The reason for this behavior (constantly running but not starting the game) is that the machine is trying to reset to score reels to zero. They may actually go to zero but the switch that tells the machine that they are in the zero position is either dirty or out of adjustment.
It is a very common problem with electromechanical pinball machines. The switches are located on the score reels in the backbox.

SOURCE: I can't install my Creepnight

The Windows 7 should automatically convert compatibility for software, but to force compatibility manually:

1. Right-click the installer, and go it's properties (this is the last option in the drop-down list).
2. Click the compatibility tab
3. Check the compatibility mode box and select the option from the list that matches the operating system you know the game last worked on.
4. Apply the changes, press OK, and re-run the installer.

WIndows Vista allows you to run it in compatibility mode for previous Windows versions such windows XP. I suggest you try it and see if it works. To do this, Right-Click on Pinball.exe and click properties
In the properties window there is an option called compatibility. CLick on that tab. Once you click that you will see an option called run this program in compatibility mode for... Click the checkbox next to that and choose Windows XP service Pack 2 from the list
That should most likely do the trick. Give it a shot and let me know so that we can try something else. PS: Bad rating = No Further help!

Flipping pinball flippers like a pro

Growing up my dad was a pinball machine collector, so we always had machines in the house and at a young age playing pinball was one of my favorite pass times. After spending many long hours playing and flipping those little flippers like a manic I realized that there was an art to using the flippers.

When it seems that the ball was going to go straight down the center of the playfield I would use both flippers to try and stop the ball from draining, but it was an action that never worked. I discovered that using only one flipper helped me to catch the ball more often. And this also helped me to discover that you don't need to flip the flippers as often as you might think.

The game of pinball is all about timing and aim, there was one time that I discovered that if I raised the flipper at just the right moment I could bring the ball to a dead stop. This gives you the ability to better control the ball or even take a short break so long as you don't take your finger off that button. You will learn after the first few times playing pinball that it is not a game of random chance that the ball hits places on the playfield and win points but that there is an element of aim involved. With practice you learn the playfield well and the power that you need to hit the ball with to hit the targets. You will find that using a certain part of the flipper will cause the ball to go exactly where you need it to.

Pinball is a very fast paced game, in some instances the ball can be moving at speeds of 20mph! With this in mind when you successfully hit the ball you should immediately let the flipper fall. Holding the flippers up when you don't need them leaves a gaping hole in the center of the playfield and makes it harder to hit the ball if it comes down fast.

With time and practice you too can master the art of being a pinball wiz and amaze your friends with your unbelievable high scores.

How do i get a wiring schematic for a Gottlieb Gold Wing pin ball machine

Gottlieb still protects the rights to all their manuals and schematics so you have to buy them from a liciensed distributor. I believe Steve Young at Pinball Resorce is the only US distributor and In Canada John Roberts from John's Jukes in B.C. is a distributor. You can try either one of them or you could try the pinball newsgroups to see if anyone has a copy they will sell you. Try that a good news group with very helpful people.
