Quoted from Mikala:

He has the game set to liberal settings, so the only two possible score points in the horseshoe should be 20k or 40k.

Nitpick, but this isn't right. When on 3 ball play, only the heart and diamonds are paired together. The club and spade still light independently of each other. You can still score 10, 20, 30 or 40k.

Not that I can hit that shot with any consistency anyway.

Side note to Rolf - Hello again, and yet another thanks for your help in getting mine up and running last Spring. 9 months or so later and it's all been smooth sailing.

Quoted from Mikala:

Nitpick is accepted. I was to lazy to pull out my manual and had second thoughts after I posted it that I was wrong.

Well I'm still open to learning how to hit that shot with regularity. (Get good and aim better.)

Now I find myself curious as to what would happen if you pull the glass and manually press the horseshoe rollover with no lights lit. I assume nothing - why would it - but I'm curious regardless.

Quoted from paddlepaw:

I have a hard time making that shot with the left flipper but found out if you can trap it on the right flipper you can backhand it to the left side of the horseshoe without too much trouble. Sometimes it'll hit the pop bumper and enter the right side unexpectedly.
With no lights lit on the Horseshoe if you hit the switch it makes the motor turn but nothing gets scored.

You know, I don't think I've ever tried to backhand it from the right. I think I reflexively aim for the left orbit to put the ball back up top when it's on the right flipper. Either hope to finish off the cards to double the bonus, or take the relatively easy 5k orbit shot.

Most of my horseshoe "shots" come from the rightmost bumper knocking it through there.
