Quoted from EalaDubhSidhe:'Fast Lap' is essentially a combo insert that blinks after each circuit loop shot. Shooting the circuit loop again should award additional laps that build up towards the Extra Ball faster.
We did have combo callouts in the game for a while. It was my voice. Everyone hated them.

Some different voice actors might do the trick!

Quoted from Wickerman2:

I want to play pinball, not explain the intricacies of sexism to my 10 and under children(imagine that conversation with my daughter--see it's called sexual innuendo, it has a double meaning--you can have sex with her/ride the bike/play pinball--all means the same thing!! Get it honey?)...and new players will think it's still "the norm" and not get the joke, if, in fact it is a joke which I'm not conviced of.
How exactly do you go about replacing a file?

Having a family mode in the menu would be good then everyone is happy. A lot of games have this already.

Quoted from Zampinator:

Yes. A more pronounced sound of hitting the bikes rev limiter would be cool. When I make a ramp shot I want to hear a Motocross bike. A little bit of polish & it would take this game to near perfect status in my book!

Yes! Like this

I was also thinking it would be cool if the rev skill shot at launch awarded more points the closer you were to red line instead of just a single value for anything in amber zone.

Quoted from lordloss:

Its ok to be offended by something, but when people demand to be hidden from the stuff that offends them... thats where it gets to be a problem.

True for adults, but I'm guessing you don't have kids...

Quoted from PersonX99:

I have heard the "competative players" complain that they races aren't worth much in points so they tend to avoid them. Being such a significant part of the game, these folks tend not to like the game. I wonder if the scoring for the races is going to be adjusted so that players go for all aspects of the game?

I have a few ideas to throw out:

Maybe more incentive like a 2 ball multiball after 3rd place would help.

Add another ball into play every time you move ahead in the race. Then when the race was over the flippers go dead and another ball is launched back into normal play.

If some of the shots counted toward completing challenges it would offer more reward for the risk of taking shots under a time pressure. A ball save option at the start of the race would be nice too. It sucks when you start a race and you drain immediately.
