    Sonic Night Fever boards have all connections soldered.

    I am trying to get a Sonic Night Fever working. It has all the wired connections to the boards soldered. My question is, were these wires once connected with connectors? If so , why did someone solder them all?

    the connectors were shit that's why it's been hardwired.

    have seen a fair few gottlieb system 1 mpu boards done the same.

    Makes it hard to remove a board for servicing!

    Same board set as Playmatic used. Those connectors REALLY were SHITTY to say the least!!

    I repaired Playmatic Last Lap a few months ago and replaced a lot of those connectors with the more common 0.156" style crimp connectors, which took a bit of creativity and patience to do!! Ended up replacing around 22 of them in total to get the game to run reliably.
