Happened at the Bat City open a few weeks ago - been too swamped to get it up with the holiday etc but curious what others think.
Summary: KISS 2015 locked up midgame after a generous nudge in the middle of the Bat City Open. Lights off, DMD frozen, flippers dead. No tilt sound or display, just totally locked up. DMD was displaying an animation at the time and I believe the scores were lost on a power cycle. I didn’t have a chance to confirm the final ruling - @Snailman can you chime in?
Anyone seen this before? It seems to me to be walking a pretty fine line between Player Error and Catastrophic Malfunction. No tilt or slam tilt reported by the machine but the player had nudged at the time of the failure. Any ideas if this is reproducible on other games?
Is there any precedent for declaring a tilt when the machine itself hasn’t reported a tilt?
