So, I got a brand new SW: Premium on Sunday, and it is a beautiful machine.
My distributor drove it several hours to my place, and set it up for me. Everything SEEMED fine out of the gate (other than a spurious right flipper EOS tech alert), but a friend of mine was playing, and neither of us could break 100 million. Everything was draining down the outlanes, often at high speed.
For a game where people claim scores north of a billion, on their first playthroughs, this seemed odd.
So, I started looking at things. The bubble level was WAY out of the box for angle. I measured with PinGuy app, and it was 8 degrees, with the phone set over the falcon artwork. Side level was almost half a degree out.
So, I leveled it, until PinGuy was happy with me, and I got a whole new set of automatic drains.
So, try a couple more apps, move the phone around the playfield. Horrifyingly, if I get the side level set to 0 with the phone in the middle, it shows 0.8 to 1 degree out on either side of the playfield.
I asked my distributor about this, who is not local, and he says, "Measure the side level on the lockdown bar.".
Well, yes, technically I could. And yes, it's nice and level there. That doesn't REALLY answer my question of "Is my playfield warped?" and "Is it warped enough to matter?"
