Out of all of the games I've owned or help set up, this one seems to be the most difficult to get set up to play right, which is obviously ironic due to the name.

So I'm curious to see where most of you have levelled your game.

Let's take a vote!

Start flat to the floor on all 4. Then raise the rear legs about 4 turns. You’re done!

I've heard a bunch of people say that, but when I try it, my game is super flat and plays like an EM!

What line is your bubble at on the shooter lane?

top of the bubble at 2nd line for me

Interesting man. My floor dips a bit near the walls, but not enough to require me to raise the legs 1/4 way to reach the second line (which it's at now).

I wonder if my bubble is all f'd up from putting the Cliffy in the shooter lane.

Do you also use a digital level?

Yeah I never trust the bubble although its often correct. I was pretty surprised
It was that close in my basement

Except my pf reads 6.3 between flippers, and 7.0 in front of the theater.

Got all my games set up all sexy, but this one is a pain in the ass.

That's how checking the levels works. Check it between the flippers, not anywhere else.

Weird, because if I set the game to 6.5 between slings, the bubble is pretty much at the third line which is 7.0.

I guess that's why a lot of people say you can't trust the bubble.

I have all five of my games set to 6.5, and half of them have the bubble in the correct spot according to the manual.

I still have no idea how some owners drop the rear legs to the floor at get 6.5!?!?

Yeah don’t trust the bubble... is your floor level? Unless you got a bad set of legs, screwed all the way in should be 6.5

I don't think any floor is perfectly levelled. But it's level enough. Putting all legs in would make the ball float around like an EM.
