Quoted from gjm7777:
Man I love this game and I hate it. I'm not a terrible player with most games but with GB Prem, I can't advance ladders to save my life it seems. Making the subway ramp or left orbit 6 times out of 10 hits the multiplier targets which is high drain risk, the ghost target is a guaranteed drain most of the time as well. I've adjusted the flippers up a bit and it's helped for some backhand shots and ball control but I still can't consistently post pass (seems to be a stern thing as on B/W it's a non issue). I guess I need to get better is all, but I always seem to drain when trying to get to the third mode on any ladder - 2 modes max for me. If the scoring was more balanced I'd at least feel like I had a decent game, but that would only last so long as I want to see the end modes and no way in hell am I going to add bigger flippers! I see people posting huge scores 300 Mil + and I have no idea how they are doing it. Maybe they are masters of the nudge...
Don’t feel bad, a lot of people get frustrated with this game. I love this pin but I understand people’s frustrations with it as well. I have friends come over and they always fall in love with the game until they play it and see how brutal it is and now they don’t even want to play it when they come over. I have made two changes this week that has gave me new love for Ghostbusters and renewed my excitement for this game.
I reversed the rubbers on the slings to make the magna slings more active and I moved the outlane post in to close up the gap on the outlines a little. These two changes made a drastic difference in this game. First off let me just put it out there that I am against changing a game from the way it comes out of the factory, but I feel like this game needed to be more fun, especially for people who aren’t that good at pinball that come over to my house and play. I won’t go as far as adding longer flippers or putting a center post in (even though I think it should have been designed with one) but I am glad that I moved the outlane posts in.
Also I know before anyone says it, “play better”. I don’t mind doing these adjustments to GB because I don’t view it as a competive pin anyway like TWD or GOT etc, it’s more of a fun pin to me and it needs to be more fun because it can be frustrating for sure. Closing up the outlines really isn’t a huge difference but it’s enough of a difference that it makes the game more fun. I may change it back someday but honestly I doubt that I will because I’m already enjoying the game more since I’ve done this. It’s kind of a pain to get to the post on the right side but nothing you can’t do as long as you have a few tools and a little bit of mechanical ability. I hope this helps.
