Okay, it's time to have some discussion on this code update again. I feel like it was a great improvement, definitely needed, but that's not enough. After all that work that was put into it, those behind the update probably deserve a bit more thanks and appreciation.

So that all being said, what's next? New thread maybe? It would be nice to get some chatter going from people who've installed the ROM update. The main thing I'm noticing is that my high scores are about 1/2 what they used to be. So without digging too deep, I'm assuming that the changes which were made probably balanced things out a bit and made it more "tournament friendly" as far as scoring & etc. is concerned. Which gets me wondering, if I change my style of play a bit and go for more of the new risk / reward type things that have been implemented, will my scores go back up a bit? Or are they just lower because the code adjusted things overall to a point where you've really got to be a master wizard to hit those peaks again.

Either way I'm very, very pleased with the update and it's probably time for me to send over another donation in appreciation.

Speaking of scores, the highest one I hit was 3,940,000,000 or so. Since the ROM update, the highest I've hit was 1,800,000,000 or so. Now granted, the 3.9 billion is ridiculous, but before that I was still pulling 2.5 billion as an average great game. Now I'm having trouble breaking 1.5 billion consistently.

Regular multi-ball in TFTC is a 3-ball multi-ball. The only multi-ball that is a 6-ball multi-ball is 'Electric Chair Multi-Ball'.

You can add balls during multi-ball by hitting the captive ball. It is kind of tough to do, but if I get enough balls on the right flipper in a row I'll shoot some of them at the captive ball (now that it is easier to hit since I replaced the post rubbers with thinner ones).
