Thanks for the pointers, Dave. Useful tips. Will try them out. I have the same problem as original poster, using the left flipper. It usually works better when I backhand the ramp, so not a weak flippers problem.
With that said, I do find the flipper button switches a little too loose. I have a pretty early version of the game, have you by any chance changed those leaf switches since then? Just wondering if I should order some new ones or if they are supposed to be that loose? It is not a deal breaker, since you get used to it, but it get mentioned when I have other people over, playing my game. Talked with a tech and he suggested I ask you guys about it.
