If credits > 15 Then credits = 15 ' But don't let us go over 15 credits (change to taste)

DeBug Keys Left in so you can test as well. :) Just be careful, what you press in the game though... - Press "K" key - creates a locked ball at KickerLock1 - Press "M" key - creates a locked ball at KickerLock2 - Releases multiball NOTE: This doesn't really work during the game, was just a logic test and a test for the ramp. - Press "T" key - Easy trick to test a feature, just create a kicker, set the variables (direction,speed) and then place on the table. It's a hidden Kicker (Kicker3) which is placed in the plunger Lane. Again, this will mess up the table with the amount of balls, but it's really used for debugging table objects by dragging the kicker in the editor around to test stuff. Note the kicker is not enabled, so a ball will pass over top and the kicker is ignored - Press "C" key - Drops Target Bank and calls routine - used to test Target Banks, and also to call the BonusCollect routines to start the Collect Bonus Event - Press "B" key - Add's one Bonus - Press "3" key - Simulates all of 1-2-3-4-5 rollovers made - increases bonus multiplier - Press "6" key - Add 10 points to score - Press "7" key - Add 100 points to score - Press "8" key - Add 1000 points to score
