Does anyone know how to obtain the extra ball on IM?
Mine seems to come up randomly. Can't figure out a set method of obtaining it.
Think it only lights as a random shield award. Would be nice for a code update to allow you to earn one instead.
There is no known forced sequence of shot/switch events to light extra ball.
Setting an extra ball at scoring threshold as has been mentioned is the only to consistently earn one.
I have heard that on IM and other Sterns, the EB will never light until a certain number of games have been played on the machine. I don't know if this is true or not. But I have seen on location where we play league, several IM's have come and gone and they do seem to give out more EB's after they've been there for a while.
