Have you guys had a recent new stern game? Like in the last 6 months?
Six months or so ago - stern started to put the interlock back into games they are making so the last run of B66 and all their current games they are making; now have the interlock switch. All of the stern games at Chicago expo had the switch and often when there was a stuck ball or other issue the switch was invaluable in restoring the state of the game play - open the coin door and the game pretty much froze its state.
My Jurassic Park has the interlock switch. I’ve tested it a lot and had one event with the game and when there is an issue; open the door and the balls drain; unstick the ball or do what you need to do. Close the door and the game auto launches the right number of balls you had and the game continues with the same state.
If you buy a brand new BKSOR, GOTG, NST, EHOH, B66, DP, IMDN or Star Wars you will get a game with the switch.
The code now has all the support for coin door interlock.
I have BKSOR GOTG B66 DP and IMDN - I want to add the interlock switch - I’d assumed it was a cable and switch from one of the existing boards but maybe it needs a new node board which might make it uneconomical - thought someone here may have already looked into this - today I will look at my JP2 and compare to other games and see what is different and post up. But if you haven’t tested a new stern with this capability I would do so it seems to work very very well.
