I have trouble making the right ramp shot consistently on my Full Throttle. The ball just rattles around and out, maybe making it to the top 1/10 times. It improved to ~2-3/10 when I lowered the playfield angle from ~8 to ~7 degrees. Still, that's pretty terrible for such an important shot. I heard that the plastic over the top of the R ramp was causing problems, but I removed it with no improvement. It seems that it needs some little metal pieces along the sides of the ramp at the bottom, like the ramp on Game of Thrones. I'm not sure if that would help, but it's a thought. Other ideas?

I'm not talking about just missing the shot, I'm saying when you hit it straight on it still rattles out. Honestly, it feels like poorly designed geometry. But perhaps it's just the fact that it's plastic at the bottom. What playfield angle do you have it set at?

Can someone link me to the most recent software update? I can't seem to track it down.

Could something like this fix the R ramp problem?

I have sent multiple emails also, no responses. Ominous sign.

Pinheads podcast just said that Alien will not work on the existing Full Throttle computer. Are you kidding??? Isn't that the whole reason he made this as an interchangeable playfield?

How will we change out the CPUs? Sounds like a pinball technician will be required. Will we have to pay for the new CPU? How about the labor involved in making the switch?

I just emailed Andrew again. If I don't hear back soon, I'll be putting my game on the market. No support from the company = loss of me as a customer. Quite a shame, as I am looking forward to playing Alien.

Which thread? I'd like to catch up on the discussion. Glad to hear you're not concerned. Perhaps it will all work out.

I seem to have lost all sound from the upper speakers. I have no treble, only bass. It sounds terrible. All of the wires are intact, and the knobs on the amplifier are unchanged. I've reset to factory settings which didn't help. I already sent emails to Andrew and support. Thoughts? Anyone had a similar issue?

I looked at them, they all seem solid. I'll check again.

Thanks, it's fixed now. Not sure what was happening. The connections all looked normal. I just reseated all of the relevant connectors, and it works now.
