    Man it irritates me when games have their special awarded in the outlane. I hate that you need to fail to be awarded. At least on FH you can light the steps and get it that way without losing a ball.

    Outlane Specials aren't that bad on route, especially when you win a free game on a last ball drain. Home use sorta irrelevant. I guess if you have Specials set for points their much better if you can shoot for em.

    The ones that always bugged me a bit had features to get in the outlanes, like Sing Along. Still a great pin though.

    Strategically you want to earn it in a multiball.

    Good point for multiball games.

    I have all of my pins set on add-a-ball settings. The funny thing is that since I've set them that way, I haven't broken my old GC scores.

    How about Extra Ball on outlane ball drain? That is like the same as a kickback with a double-bonus feature

    Like extra ball that way like pinbot,simpsons etc..

    Don't like special setup like this or at least not for HU.

    I don't award an extra ball for special but this got me thinking that it should award something. Obviously a free game is moot. Anyone know if you can set it to award points instead of eb or free game? Having a lit insert not award anything gives my games a Stern feel.

    They can be set to award points. One of the nice by-products of having special earn an extra ball is that I get a knock for each extra ball. Is there a better sound in pinball?

    I was just thinking about this yesterday. Should I make the special worth an EB or just leave as is. No fun winning a free game at home.

    This is actually one of the things I dislike about having special earn an extra ball. In my opinion, the knocker should only go off when you earn a free credit.

    This can actually be useful on some old EM games. You have maxed out the bonus and double bonus, and there is not much to shoot for, take the extra ball and start again.

    Yes, my Bally Night Rider is like this. It can be fun to shoot into the inlane and nudge it out to score an extra ball.
