@ScottT Boy... haven't seen that at all.  Perhaps find a different ROM, or nvram file??  Did the old version of Cactus Jack's work?

Great table thanks,for some reason the ball doesn't release for me either & have tried it with the nv ram too.

Can you help me troubleshoot?  I do not see this problem on my desktop, cab, or VR.  Do you know if it did it in the old version?  That would help me.  Is it a focus issue?  Meaning, is another window stealing focus, and you might have to click that window (this used to happen to me on some tables in VR).  Is it accepting coins and starts... then just doesn't launch a ball?  Or can you hear it trying to launch a ball, and it just doesn't go in the groove?  What happens exactly?

Hi, it accepts coins & is not a focus problem & the dmd displays properly & the playfield lights,I did reinstall the earlier version from Rascal which worked before but strangely does the same thing,I'm sure it tries to release a ball

So the other version does the same thing.  Ok... that would lead me to believe it's not anything specific to the edits done on this table.  I would suggest perhaps it's a nvram issue.  Try removing the cactjack.nv file and the cactjack.cfg file.  And then load a fresh nv file from here.  https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=1362   Then relaunch.

I have the same problem where the table makes the sound of the coin drop, but no ball is loaded in the trough.  it is accepting coins and starts... then just doesn't launch a ball.

I do not hear any ball trying to go in to the trough.

 

I have read this stream and appreciate your comments to SteveGooner.

 

- I have since removed the nvram entry and the config file.  Thanks for providing that link to the nvram content.

- I have loaded the other Cactus Jack table that Rascal modded from PacDude.  That table runs fine and loads a ball that I can play.
