    Fubar thats part of the table design, not a bug as far as I am aware. I dont think any of the other mission modes can be done this way though. As JJ is just a two ramp shot (JJ>Right loop) it makes a bit of (weird) sense its active this way.

      - Reward Hole music and DMD sequence sometimes continues for an extended period. Seems to happen more often on very long games, particularly during the JJ Hurry Up.

      - Defeated Doc Ock, yet his mode immediately restarted. Doc Ock didn't move back to his original position.

        Nightmare Mansion

        Game Breaking:

        Sorry Zen, can't describe the exact circumstances, but I drained the ball after the (harsh) Witch Bonus noise played. Then the noise started repeating.

        There wasn't any obvious rhyme or reason to it: it would speed up, playing several times a second, then slow down to once every few seconds, then start up again.

        The Witch Bonus was advanced 50K each time. After it built to 1 million, I received an Extra Ball. And another Extra at 2.5 million. The noise petered out after the Witch Bonus had built to over 4 million.


        Misfeatures:

        1) Unlike more modern tables, the "Shoot Again" light is not permanently lit when receiving an Extra Ball. Instead, we get "Ball 4", "Ball 5" etc on the DMD.

        2) There is no Status information displayed on the DMD when a flipper is held.

        3) If the Shoot Again light stops flashing while the ball is in a drain lane or trough, the ball is lost. There should be a grace period, as on more modern tables.

        4) No ability to change the (ugly) DMD color.


        Irritating

        Harsh, over-loud sound samples. Particularly the cat shriek and the bats squeals.

            Street Fighter - I had the ball end up on the bow of the boat behind Blanka - after waiting a few seconds the ball relaunches and it doesn't count as a drain.....

              During Dig Site Mission, if ball drains immediately after hitting the dynamite target, (to win the mission,) points are awarded like usual, but the light on the playfield does not light. You are then not able to select that mission again, when selecting another Cap's Hole mission. I presume that this will prevent you from getting to the final missions, but I am not that good to get that far after doing this glitch.

                Its not supposed to count as a drain, its a ball reset. Thats not a bug, its intended design to resolve ball sticking.

                Found what I think is a new bug on Mars.

                Possible gamebreaker;

                During "Anti-Gravity" mini-mission a ball may end up stuck ontop of the right rail at the joint. Because the joint is placed with the ends up it acts like a ball catcher. If the player then drops a ball and fails the mode the ball is trapped there.

                  This is a known glitch and it occurs on most tables. I had the same thing happen to me on Ironman last week. I completed the mission and the ball drained at the same time. It's not much of a glitch though. The mission is complete (still got to the wizard mode), the light just doesn't stay on. It acts like a burned out bulb like in a real pinball machine.

                    Bug: Teeter-totter/diverter on center ramp (activate Silver Samurai lock ramp) was "stuck in the middle" and would not allow any shots to be successfully completed. Diverter eventually was bumped back into a proper position after several (5-10) failed ramp shots. Diverter operated normally for the remainder of the game.

                    Notes: This occured during my last completed game on 08/25/2011 and has never occurred prior to that time.

                      Speed Machine -

                      When making a shot to the left orbit (think that's what it's called, it the one with red in front of it) from a trapped right flipper, the ball will not go into the loop, but rather the in/outlanes about 19/20 shots. I understand that I may not be hitting it properly, but the amount of times it doesn't enter the loop is just crazy.....

                        Found a bug on Extreme. Right after i activated Playground multiball, somehow two balls got stuck right underneath the third flipper, and had only one ball in play. I got them unstuck by shooting the only ball into the playground and letting it drain into the bottom playfield, unclogging the jam. Not sure if nudging the table gets them unstuck. But it isn't a gamebreaking glitch. Just a little food for thought.

                            Wolverine Table

                            Bug: The left kickback sometimes kicks the ball directly in to the right outlane!

                            Why is this one considered a bug?

                            These things happen when playing pinball.

                              Changed that and a few others from bugs to misfeature. I agree that it does happen in pinball, but it happens very often on Wolverine and not just occasionally... so for me it just needs a slight strength adjustment.

                                Well lets hope that Zen one day will fix all these bugs.
                                Read somewhere that it will cost lots off money doing so because of microsoft

                                They should pay you as a Beta tester Cloda it will probably save them some money.
