So where's the best place to learn / view nudging tutorials? I'm progressing a bit as a player and have improved my flipper skills quite a bit (still PLENTY of room for improvement of course!)... but holy hell, nudging is just an enigma that fiendishly escapes me.
I mean, I've now played the one game I own enough to where it can friggin telegraph an oncoming STDM or an outlane shuffle/drift... I naively tell myself not to be so cynical, yet I see it coming and always feel powerless to stop it. Mind you, I have no problems shaking the machine a bit: I'm able to do so without tilting. Sometimes it works, or was it just luck? I just can't seem to figure out the when/how.
Any attempts I make probably hurt me as often (or more so?!?) than they might help. Mostly I can't even discern that my nudge had any kind of effect whatsoever. The fact there's no way to consistently predict or repeat the same situations for practice (unlike flipper control and timing) doesn't help, but of course that's part of the game (or my still-needs-work lack of finesse).
I've watched a few gameplay videos where I can tell they're nudging, but not how or why... it all happens too fast and subtly and is rarely even pointed out.
Anyway: I say nudging isn't wrong, but my inability to do it right pisses me off. How can I fix this?
