    Quoted from fxdwg:

    it is my understanding that level is left to right, and pitch is front to back? I don't understand why pinheads on this forum think the bubble is for LEVEL, its for proper pitch of the games design. or am I totally wrong here?
    when I move a game, I use a regular torpedo level on the playfield (or on the glass if im in a hurry) then usually set the pitch based on the bubble level in the game. I aim to have the bubble in the middle, and if the game plays too slow (or floaty) for my liking, I make the bubble go above the center line...
    if im doing it wrong, please set me straight!!

    Of course. The level on the side that is shipped with the game is for the proper pitch. On Iron Maiden that creates a pitch of 6.5, if the bubble is between the lines. A little torpedo level placed on the Playfield horizontal would allowed to make the adjustment to level from left and right. Thought this was pretty obvious and basic.
