i'm playing elvis and i can routinely get four of the five hit songs but i'm having trouble getting 'blue suede shoes', what exactly do you have to do to attain this? i have all settings on the easiest level...the instructions for the game just say shoot the middle loop with the upper right flipper and i do, but how many times? and two lanes have bss marked on them, do you need to hit both a certain number of times? can an elvis owner or someone else weigh in?

I've heard the main thing is don't step on them.

Is it looping all the way around, catching on the magnet to set you up for a combo? I'm pretty sure that's how you do it if I remember correctly. If your loop is funky or flipper is weak & the ball is going to the bumpers instead of the magnet above the upper flipper, you won't be able to do it. Or - if your magnet is broken, that might make it tougher, too.

it is looping all the way around, the magnet is strong, what do u mean by combo shot?

When it loops around and the magnet catches it, loop it around again and again and again! One shot is just the set-up for the magnet...the 2nd loop (and more) are what count toward Blue Suede Shoes.

i have done that, i guess not enough, even at easiest setting...how many times do i have to loop it around to get bss?

It's been a while since I've had the game...but on easy, I'm guessing 3?

I believe you loop to start when insert is lit and then have to loop twice to start. This has to be two loops complete once loop count starts.
Really hope someone in the future can add full cuts to the code.

Hate to resurrect an old thread but how many times to you have to hit hound dog to activate the multiball? Game is set on easy.

Not very many. I haven't played Elvis in a year, and it wasn't set on easy, but I'd think like 2-4ish? I believe they only count if nothing else is running: you should get the obnoxious hound-dog callout if you get the hit.
