AFM slam tilt bug

The AFM I play on location has slam tilted a few times lately prompting some conversation about a bug in the software that causes it to slam if a certain sequence of shots are hit. The general explanation is that it has to do with something like hitting the I target while a ball is going around the cow ramp. It happened to me during TA, but I didn’t have a good sense of where all the balls were at that exact moment.

No idea if it’s urban legend or just a flaky slam tilt switch. Anyone know about this?

Waiting on the op to get back to me on the ROM version.

My AFM has never slam tilted. I have not heard of this behavior. It seems far more likley that your AFM has a switch matrix or other problem than a bug that would cause this problem.

Exactly, it’s most likely you have a bad diode somewhere causing a complete-the-square short.

Thanks guys. That makes much more sense to me than the wacky lore I’ve been hearing about.

If it just started. See if any stand up targets have been replaced - most likely wired wrong or diode on backwards. Then check switches exposed to ball hits, like on ramps, a good chance wiring/switch lugs/diode are shorting together.
