Quoted from wayout440:

I would also like to mention that a lot of digital simulations of pinball also include the ability to nudge as a part of the programming.

A good quality virtual pinball machine will have an nudge sensor (accelerometer) installed that allows you to move the table around and affect the ball. My cabinet also has a tilt sensor (plumb bob) installed, so the game will let you know if your to rough.

Just a question for the non-nudges. What do you do if the ball stops and gets stuck somewhere? Do you wiggle it free, or just stop your game. give up and take the glass off.

I love nudging and sliding. My tilts are loose and free. I totally agree that it's part of the game and an acquired skill.

My only question with death saves is about the logic of the game. If the ball has already rolled over the Outlane switch, and the game has already scored points for the Outlane drain, then could the game be confused with ball count? How about end of ball bonus score/points, has that been added onto your ball score even though the ball hasn't ended?

Do all games add points only after the ball has made its way to the ball trough? If so, then I might even consider them to be ok.

If the game counts score only when the ball drops into the trough, and you haven't tilted the game, and the glass is on, then it should be ok.

If your unhappy that your game is getting damaged then your tilt might need to be set tighter, or your skill need to be improved.
