I just have been playing the game more since this is my first 'club' thread that I started. Figured I should dig deeper into the game. I have had the game around for like 7-8 years but never really learned the game I was just hitting the ball around and sinking the ship for the most part.
So, today I was working on the left mini orbit (treasure shot) the one used for the skill shot, and two times in consecutive games, I hit the left mini orbit shot and it went straight over to hit the right mini orbit (from the top) which would be the super duper skill shot. I did it during regular play not during the first few seconds needed for the skill shot. But I can see now the geometry is set up that a brisk shot to the left mini will feed the right mini. If the shot is not brisk enough, it will not make the top right mini and will instead hit the target in front.
One time I was aiming to hit the right mini orbit and it went in the top lane of that shot, it was not my object but it went in fine, probably not an easy shot to aim for but it's funny in pinball how you can hit shots that you never expect to.
Also, I have been aiming more for the right orbit shot to the right of the chest. It's cool how the ball will go in loop around the top and exit back out the same way it came in, this is really cool geometry to the shot and must have took a lot of thought to make it like that.
