Greetings, fellow adventurers!

I'm enjoying my Hobbit but I love making my machines nasty/tough.

Any tips on making Hobbit brutal? I saw one set up with lightning flippers at Pinburgh and that got me thinking...Hmmm!!....What gameplay settings should I select to make the journey most difficult? When I host tournament play, nothing would make me laugh harder than excellent players cursing my "easy multiball Hobbit" that has been booby trapped to make them flail and fail!

I installed the Lupin settings in my Shadow and must say it enhances play quite a bit. Is there something similar for Hobbit?

My apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, I did a search and couldn't find anything.

Thanks, in advance!

Turn EB's off and ball save, lightning flippers also help, and taking outlane post and rubbers out.

1.) Increase the pitch of the machine (this used in conjunction with flipper power settings will make getting the ball up the ramp more difficult)
2.) Open out lane posts
3.) Allow Beast MB during Smaug MB (on by default - I shut it off because it sucks)
4.) I believe there's a menu setting to affect travel speed to Erebor - increase it
5.) Set for 3 ball (that's default)
