Quoted from indybru:
I actually had a few good games on my IM today, one score over 50,000,000 and another about 37,000,000. So what should I do?
Wax & clean the play field.
How long have you had IM? Sounds like it is giving you a tough time.
My IM plays really tough. It was my first Stern after owning 90's BW's and I sucked at it for a while and questioned whether I made a mistake buying it. But I stuck with it and got better on it and as I got better on IM I really got better at other games.
I started to really blow up 90's DMD games that were not set up really difficult. They mostly play in slow motion to me now. It is to the point where they are not much fun for me anymore. I also play non Borg Sterns better also. Stern SW is giving me a tough time though. Love it! I now like 80's Bally's more and more now. I like them better than 90's dmd's. I attribute this all to my IM making me a better player and adding an excitement and intensity to pinball that I did not now about before.
I just try to make Jericho when I play. I put Jericho on carryover in the settings. I can't imagine completing it on one ball, but folks do it. I spread out my shots on ball one to get to Do Or Die rather than pounding each mark one at a time.
Make sure to hit Iron Monger on the sides. Some of my friends don't like the random drains from the IRon Monger Magnet, but I think it is my fault if I hit The Monger up the middle and then get a Magnet whip for an drain. And for me getting Bogey started then War Machine MB, then Whiplash MB going is one of the most exciting stacks in pinball.
