I have a decent amount. I have always been a DE defender, but I do get part of the complaining when I've had them near each other - the modes on JP, TFTC, Tommy and WWFRR are extremely similar. B/W games do "feel" different from one another. I LOVE the way that the DE machines are, but I don't like having all four of mine near each other or playing them close to one another.

That said, if you only have a few machines, they are the best bargain in pinball I think. JP remains one of my favorite games, especially lately

I should have posted this before, but important tip for all DE Club Members:

Replace your pop bumper spoons with Bally / Williams ones. Just the plastic spoon! It will vastly change your gameplay.

DE pop bumper spoons are shaped like a V, meaning to get them to move it requires a decent amount of force, which I believe is in large part why people say they "feel clunkier" than B/W games that only need a brush with a pop bumper to get it to fire. B/W spoons are in a U shape, which allows them to move easily.

If you change that, the pops behave totally differently and will work SO much better. I've done this with almost all my DE machines, and just realized I need to with the TFTC too.

Also reminder - TFTC and JP have new code. Check their threads for more info!
