I joined the club last Thursday. Game is pretty fun and pretty fast. Music, sound, and callouts are great, those alone make me want to come back and play so more. I had a couple of minor issues to deal with, if other's are having them maybe this will help:
- Slingshots were having multiple firings after contact with the ball. first i went right after going for a switch gap adjustment but this had little effect. finally figured out the power settings for them was just too damn strong (they were flinging balls over the opposite slings and down the outlanes or back into the shooter lane. I adjusted them from coming from the factory at 32 down to 20 and they work great now and are still probably too strong. I lost a little sensitivity in my switches by going to the gap adjustment first, so I recommend experimenting first with the sling power if you experience this issue. sometime this week I'll need to go back and close the gaps just a bit... It's probably in most people's best interests to turn these babies down anyway with the massive amount of sling shot plastics sticking out over the playfield - those suckers are asking to be broken.
- Left ramp shot is a @$%&* on my game. it's about half the reliability of what I found on others out in the wild. Does anyone have any good suggestions to tweaking this to get higher consistency on making the ramp shot? I really hope the software team changes the code rules to allow for that shot (like it does for building up towards Katanarama even without making the full ramp shot) to be awarded even if it doesn't make the whole ramp. as is, it really sucks. I can see leaving it for the Ninja multiball locks, but there's no reason for the others not to be awarded.
- Hard right orbit shots sometimes bounce up and get knocked down and stopped, I think by the katana sword lock? anyone else experience this and find an easy fix?
Anyway, game is great right out of the get go, there are some really fun things that happen with the ball in that scoop area from the random pop bumper action. I do really hope there are some massive code updates coming. I've only had the game a few days now and the 5 main modes are already getting repetitive. hopefully we'll see more mini achievements to go for along the way and more scoring and shooting features to keep things interesting.
