Quoted from pinballinreno:

Last night I increased the power of the lower slings by 2 from the factory settings on my game, and the upper sling by 1.
This has made a huge difference in game play.

I cranked my lower sling power to max.

My game is at max pitch and not only can I easily make both ramps either flipper from stopped ball, but I can make both ramps from either flipper on moving ball as well. I think hobbit really needs a high pitch.

Quoted from FalconPunch:

When you hit the right orbit, where is the ball meant to land? Right flipper? Left?

Left flipper. I think I had to tweak my ball guide on mine to do this.

Well if you look at the left orbit there right before the spinner and after the slingshot is a ball guide. I bent mine back with pliers until the ball came to the left flipper consistently. You can now combo rough orbit shots in a row. Extremely minor bends have a significant result. So make small changes and test.

The book is a vga monitor connected with a vga video cable. It can be loose on both ends

Quoted from cscmtp:

I know its not loose on the back of the book, but where does it plug into? Do i have to take the silver cover off the box below the playfield?

Quoted from FlippyD:

A question I have is regarding sound. I was expecting a lot more bass. I mean there's bass but it's just not BOOOMING. Didn't see an EQ in the options. Do you need to upgrade the sub and amp to get more rumble in the low end?

One thing you can do is add 10 ohm resistors on each of the backbox speakers. This will lower the volume and you'll have to turn it up louder to make it how it was - leaving more bass.

One of these on each speaker http://www.parts-express.com/10-ohm-25w-resistor-wire-wound--017-10. Just remove the wire off the + terminal on each speaker and solder the resistor inline.

Quoted from Metalzoic:

Since you are familiar with audio in these things I'll ask you this.
Any idea why I'm getting speaker crackle/static/hum constantly? It isn't loud enough to notice when playing, but when it's sitting there at idle you can hear it from across the room. I've been over it 3 times now checking for loose bits, plugging/re-plugging RCAs etc... and have had no luck.
Anyone else's do this? Mine also makes a loud pop noise when it turns on and as it boots it makes a lot of speaker feedback, almost sounds like a dial up modem.

Perhaps you should try eliminating noise with some ferrite cores.
