Both flippers collapsed and both flippers became "spongy".

Sure hope there is a quick fix for this.

I was really loving this game but this a real bummer.

Quoted from mbelofsky:

While playing yesterday, the ball went into the magic shop. While doing the hat video, a ball came out of the trough and then the ball came out of the side hole. I played two balls for a minute or so until one went into the side hole and adjusted itself back to one ball. I am on the latest code version.
Saturday will be the big test for this game (as well as my other 9 games). I have invited over 50 people from work over for a party. So far no major issues with the game. So I am expecting it to work well for the party. It will be the first time it will be on and played for 8 hours or so.

Just had 30 folks over Sunday.
As the day went on the game stopped making the trunk shots. Shots were short and to the left.
Trunk lid screw backed out and the lid stuck on rear wall.
Animations did not match audio call outs.
Hope your game does well for the party.

I wish I worked where you do! Hope the party goes well!

My game is firing balls without being plunged.
If I walk away from a 4 player game for awhile the game launches balls?

Since the download of the latest code the game dies during play.
Completely dies, lights out etc., then restarts. Has done it 3 times.
Will pull logs tomorrow.

Quoted from Platypus:

Sub Woofer question. I am planning to build a sub woofer to use with Houdini. what have some of the others of you done to route the wires out of the cabinet? I am thinking of mounting a phono plug on the bottom.

I just realized there is no cabinet speaker in Houdini.
I have hooked up my game to an external sub and really like it.
There are plenty of subwoofer post here to go on.
Houdini is a keeper for me.
Looking forward to seeing game 3 down the road.
