I’ve seen this thread on here before but I couldn’t find the actual fix.
Problem: hold the left flipper to raise left gate and launch ball but it won’t make the orbit for the super skill shot. It rattles around typically going into the pops or even down the right orbit lane.
I have adjusted the shooter coil so it strikes the ball dead center. People keep talking about the ‘bend the ramp fix’ but I couldn’t find a picture or explanation of what they where talking about. Is it the shooter lane ramp or the wire form above that ramp (maybe ball is striking it during ball launch?).
I contacted CGC and they told me to check the bend of the right orbit interior lane guide. The ball does seem to strike that guide flush and cause issues but it seems like it shouldn’t hit that guide in the first place if the launch was straight and clean to begin with.
This is a 2017 build of AFMr. Can someone explain the solution or have a picture of it?

Easy solution. Open a repair ticket it’s CGC. Known issue affecting a certain range of games. You will get a replacement ball guide by the pop bumpers - easy to install and corrects the issue completely.
