Quoted from Mr_Outlane:
I have done all the updates, but fail to see the importance of these beast door ball stops. They would be a major PITA to install on my machine. Everyone requires moving the entire mechanism back and adjusting leaf switches and grinding ball stops to fit. The ball rarely ever gets caught and if it does, all you do is wait for game to eject it. Nothing gets damaged. The ball does not get permanently stuck or fall into hole. Believe me, I tried to do it and quickly figured out it's not even remotely worth the trouble, at least on my machine.
I am curious why this is so on my machine? All the beast mechs are leaning forward leaving next to no clearance for ball stops to be installed. This is why the balls rarely get caught by doors and don't get permanently stuck. All the beasts register hits from front, back and even side shots perfectly, and why I don't want to start messing with them. Has there ever been a problem where balls got stuck or have fallen down into holes requiring glass removal?
The anti-ball trap fittings are pretty good.
If you arent having any balls sucked down, so that the mech cant push them out, then you dont need them.
If a ball does get stuck, this requires manually retrieving the ball with the glass off.
Most games do indeed need them. Especially if the game gets a lot of plays.
I had a stuck ball almost every other game. Im good at hitting a beast exactly when the trap door goes down, Its a super power lol.
Contrary to popular belief the fittings are easy to install with the right tools. You just have to think about it.
You dont have to remove or disassemble anything at all.
Having the right tools is the key.
It took me 8 mins to install all 4 of them.
Balls can still get stuck, but with the fittings installed, the game can now eject them.
