Not sure how it’s done though on that frame, all mine are “stock” besides some that have aftermarket volume controls installed. I’d remove the cell and post a pic of what the chutes look like. You may like it cyclitic; only need a few balls to play; but no huge ball payouts (besides what your battle counter indicated) and no ball lifter, ball management system/cabinet needed. Each way has its pluses an minuses.

    The big drawback on this machine is the payout cartridge/motor is also missing. Could take a long time and be hard to source one but not impossible.

    Good call! Forgot about that. Probably easier to just buy another full Evol framed machine with a cool cell, from a trusted seller that can answer your questions beforehand. They do pop up on here from time to time, I’m sure one will come up for sale domestically if one is patient.

    but come on, of course it'd be safe to assume there was a generic aspect to these. I tried using google translaet, but the results are still a bit ambiguous and laden with slang.

    you know if I can figure out how the counter reads, I don't think I mind at all that it's cyclyc.
