This game is awesome!
I don't have mine yet. This one is on location. It was a small drive, but I couldn't wait to play this one. Challenging and fun.
I noticed some flipper weakness on another machine, so it's not just that location. If a ball is flying fast and I flipped it, I would notice the flipper not firing all the way out, thus hitting the ball with a weak flip. It was especially noticeable during multi ball and seemed like the upper flipper was having the most trouble.
Quoted from harryhoudini:
Maybe an EOS thing? Seems like the hold power might be low.
Yeah might be it. I'm having an issue on my LOTR which might relate to the same switch, but I think it's the high power not firing correctly, as the flipper has trouble when hitting the ball from the sweet spot on the flipper.
Quoted from jonesjb:
That was happening on the one I played too, not sure if it was just getting overheated from all the gameplay?
I hope it's something which can be adjusted. I like to play marathon sessions, and overheating issues after less than two hours of play would be a huge bummer.
In the spirit of not being all negative, I wanted to post a picture of the awesome light show, but I'm having two issues. The pic got super dark when I attached it, and I can't seem to find any way to delete a pic from my post at all, so here's two of the same picture.
Quoted from jonesjb:
Actually to clarify, the issue I saw was the right flipper getting weak shooting up the left ramp NOT failing to catch when shot out of the center shot (this I’ve seen on Game of Thrones when the dragon shot kicks out).
I saw the weakness you are talking about and also just any time a ball hit the flipper at a direct angle when trying to hit it on the fly (not coming out of the scoop).
I was trying to compare side by side images of the butters people posted to the photos on the respective game pages, but there weren't really comparable pictures to see the difference.
I keep going back and forth on the butter option. Oh well, at least I have time to decide.
