Not sure if there was a previous "members only" thread. I searched, but don't see one. If so I apologize.
So, I'm a new owner of this game. I had been looking for a nice GNR for some time, but I either never had the cash at the time or they were just not available in my area. I traded my TZ for this one last week and am very happy! I'm now looking for playing tips, game strategies, upgrades to the machine, etc... I did see the GNR Mods thread and that was nice, but I'm looking for more/different details. For example:
I have the older shooter ramp (re-chromed and like new) that will be staying with the game, but noticed if the game is raised too high, the ball will not make the ramp and get stuck in the shooter lane (known issue). The question, is there a stronger coil that can be installed to make the shooter more powerful? I have lowered the back of the machine and it works fine now, but the balls roll slower down the playfield.
There is an Extra Ball button below the start button... When is it used? I have played 50 games and it never Prompted me to use it (like TZ did). Please don't laugh...
Have you upgraded your speakers and did it make a big enough difference to justify buying them?
Does your ball get stuck behind the gate where the backstage light insert is? Mine does and I think that may be related to how high the game was raised/lowered.
I find the "Mystery Mode" has the biggest bang for the buck... What do you think?
That's all for now.
