Whats the deal with the fat-top and skinny-top drop targets?
There are two types of drop targets used in all Williams/Bally machines since the early 90’s. The skinny-minnie and the fat-top. The two are exactly the same except the fat-top has a wider top so that when the target is in the down position the ball can roll over it without getting stuck in the slot in the playfield where the target is down. I can’t find it in the manual right now, but I’ve been told (and it makes sense) that the IJ is supposed to have 3 fat-top targets and 1 skinny-top target. 2 of the 3 fat-tops go on the right two of the 3-bank targets and the third fat-top goes on the single drop target. The one skinny-top target goes on the left-most of the three-bank targets since the ball can’t get stuck on the slot when it is down.
