wondering if anyone has experenced and can advise on any adjustments to the gate for the extra ball / multi ball orbit kickout hole. if i nail the shot the gate will reject bounce it back only when I make a sloppy shot up there and the ball is slower will it go into the hole.

I've experiencede this on a couple of different DM's. They never stayed around long enough to try and make it perfect though. Maybe drop dead foam from Pinbits would help?

I had the same problem on mine. I added some material to deaden the impact and prevent the ball from bouncing out.

For fun I also lowered the entire assembly by a few millimeters so that balls could "sneak" in from the bop bumpers or by a well placed shot up the middle (lower lip was made to be level with the pf). I really liked the mod and I felt that it added some nice shot variety.

interesting how did you lower it? I am guessing washers on the under playfield weldment? I haven't opened the game for a while.

Yep--used washers as I recall (it's been awhile and I don't own the game anymore). You just have to be careful to not go too deep otherwise the solenoid won't have enough juice to consistently eject the ball back up to the playfield.
