Seeking knowledge on The Getaway quirkiness and oddities


The Getaway is on the bench and the torch is red hot.

Looking for expert information on these specific cases.

L-5 ROM behaviour only!

  1. Are Supercharger mode known to mess up Trafik lights status, or locks made status?

  2. Are Red line mania known to mess up Trafik lights status? (Assume no jackpots made)

  3. Do Tournament play status affect the Burn rubber awards?

  4. Are a (pity) multiball more frequently awarded on Burn rubber on ball 3.

  5. Are there any bugs specific to multi player games? Like locks made by one player being messed up due to play by another player.





Is L5 the version with the secret mania “Lock Block”?


No that is L2.


This one needs some work for sure, at least fixing the bugs.

@pinwizj won’t even let us use mine for IFPA 2018 cause of the issues.


Do you have a T2 you can swap in?


or maybe TNG?



No jackpots? Shouldn’t affect multiball

Yes, they are in a fixed sequence for pretty much every known version. Something like 5M, RPM, Video Mode, Spot Gear, Multiball. Might have a couple of those mixed up.

True for all versions, but not in tournament mode.

I don’t believe there are cross-player issues.

This whole thing has been discussed constantly. My personal opinion is L-2 generally works the best if you don’t take secret mania. You shouldn’t be taking it anyway, so you kind of deserve whatever the heck you get. The L-5 multiball restart business is just bizarre and stupid.


This is what I tell people who take the Gun skill shot on DH and the ball dribbles out.


And fixed… Now let’s tie the loose ends.

Thanks for the explaination. Thanks to all of you.


Are you also looking into the endless ball save bug?


That issue is only known for the L-2 ROM, isn’t it.


I had thought it was in all of them but I could certainly be wrong, its so hard to keep track.
