Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Pinball keps making running and running noise, Or will not start up at all after hitting start button when turned on some times. It stays in game over mode.

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.

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.

SOURCE: IS THERE A PROGRAM TO
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!

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 rec.games.pinball that a good news group with very helpful people.
