This is just a couple suggestions for all FGY owners.
Let’s face it stewie Pinball is fun! But like anything it can get old when you access it 5-6+ times in one game, especially when you have no timer.
1. In settings adjust Stewie Pinball to sudden death with timer.
2. In settings adjust captive-ball to 1 PINBALL letter per captive ball hit.
3. In settings adjust Stewie Pinball to one CHARACTER letter per target hit.
4. This requires removing the mini playfield-follow manual-very easy. Remove the center post (between the captive balls) and one ball from the lane.
-This is where I think Pat Lawlor is a absolute genius!
Anyone can hit the lower captive ball over and over and over and start stewie over and over again. But make them use the side flipper to progress because of design... brilliant!
I’ve made these adjustments on my family guy and it works perfectly. In the end it requires you to oscillate the ball(a weak hit will score a letter but won’t oscillate ball) to spell Pinball for stewie. As well as collect jackpots and extra ball.
Makes the game a bit more difficult but also makes stewie a better experience to me. If you find yourself starting stewie very often try these adjustments.
