    Jack mentioned that there are ways to tell if a personis cheating but did not say how. Some have suggested time between switch activations and if the flippers are being used to match switch activations. It is pretty easy if written into code.

    I do not see why this has to be complicated. The game could even sense the pf pitch. If it is not 6 degrees, +/-.5 then it will not be allowed to connect to the online host. Cheating gets you booted off. The machine will default to a certain set of rules when you enter that mode. If it is recreational play online you could still be allowed to change settings. It is no different then everything they are already doing. There will be cheaters, but they will try to stop them.

    I think a mode that is linked would be interesting where is you drain, the other players flippers quit. That would give the players the same ball times. It would not be cool for a real tourney, but a different division that will gives some of of "standard" players a chance to actually compete on a different level. It would be more of a speed score mode. It would force people to know the rules and maek certain shots.

    Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

    could the wifi be used for other things like code updates?

    Yes, pretty sure that is already happening soon from rumors.

    Quoted from eggbert52:

    Pretty soon someone will develop a camera kit to monitor cheaters which in turn will also be hacked.

    I am not sure I want to look in on some of the people while they are playing! Who knows what you will see if it is on the player.

    It is just the competitive nature of people.
