Lots of great ideas here. How about giving some extra awards for winning a race. The sponsorship idea sounds cool but there is nothing like an instant reward

Here are just a few ideas:

Win 1 race = get 2 gears (could be some strategy in this if you do a race right before a multiball)
Win 2 races = finish all the shots for a challenge(like a super skill shot on afm or mm) or get an extra ball
Win 3 races = A doubler on a chosen shot for the rest of the ball, It has been done before, but often with great success (Spider-man)
Win 4 races = Go straight to multiball
Win 5 races = A tripler on one shot for the rest of the game
Win 6 races = All gears ready

One thing that has not been addressed is the main multiball (and also the wizard modes)

All though it is ok in it's currant state, I find it a little uninspiring. Maybe there is more to it than I have seen.

An add a ball or extra ball feature would help a little. The scoop or captive ball could be used for this

Maybe make the super do something special to keep it more apart from the regular jackpots and to make it worth going for, except more points.

Or at least add some more speech to the multiball.

Example: -Super jackpot is ready, -Compliments if you hit a certain number of jackpots, etc.

The only call-outs in 1.20 is Jackpot and super-jackpot, with very little animation also.

I prefer multiballs with a little story to them, but it does not have to have that to be fun. But it has to have something.

I like the scoring progression in it though, and the opening animation

The same goes for the 2 wizard modes. No new music, no call-outs, very little animation but at least you do not start those too often.

Probably to late for most of my wishes, but a few call-outs to make the player feel like they are being awarded, would go a long way

Another thing, is there only 3 songs in gameplay? (races, multiball and main play/(instrumental) challenges(same with vocal)

Some new music in red mist, world champion or Final challange would help those stand apart more.

Ok, sorry programmers. All this sounds worse than it actually is

The game is already plenty of fun and has some great, innovative rules but this is a code wish list after all

Any big changes from 1.20 to 1.30?

I am still using 1.20. Think they needed to check a few things regarding updating from 1.10 (that I had) before I was allowed to jump to 1.30

Nothing new here from me, but nothing wrong with saying things again either

The most important stuff for me is more sfx for hitting stuff and making the races a little more interesting to go for (adding awards)

Also, the main multiball could use a little bit more rules or rewards. (I like that it has values based on the races but just hitting all the shots once, then repeat is a little boring) things like add a ball or extra ball would also help here but mixing up what you need to shoot for would make it far more interesting.

I would like like some more callouts and sounds in the Main multiball and the 2 wizard modes and Red Mist. The road to them is just fine but the award for getting there is a little uninspiring. (love the intro with the medals, though)

This all might sound like huge amount of work, but just a few small adjustments would go a long way. The rules for the modes (races and challenges) is already good and don't need anything added

Quoted from Whysnow:

I would like races to impact your jackpot value when in mutiball.

I believe this is already in there?

The answer to all race questions is instant rewards for winning. If the rewards are good enough, it will be much more satisfying to go for a win.

1.40? I am still using 1.20. Is there much added or fixed since 1.20 or is it mainly Shaker and fiber optics?
