I was going to wait a couple of months before I sold my no fear but a trade came up for the x-men that I really wanted...The game has been kicking my ass since it got here, before it goes should I make it to 10 ball game and see what I couldn't get to?

I had it set to 3 ball. I was getting better at it but this deal came up and its out of here tomorrow. My original time table was to sell around the York show.My high score is 3 Billion so I don't totally suck. I'm just wondering what I might have been missing.

Well you can always set the buy extra ball amount up also.

Nah, I wouldn't do it. It's not satisfying to "beat" the game on that setting. Just let it go, doing what you can on 3 balls and someday you'll still want to play the game again. If you spoil it, it's just one more machine that you'll have lesser interest in.

No, you should never set a game to 10 ball. This is very bad and you will regret it. I once set a game to 10 ball and it has been haunting my dreams for about 3 years and 4 months. Please do not make the same mistake that I did...

hey, it's your game and it's in your house... if you want to set it to 10 balls, go for it...

I agree with this - I played a 9 ball game of WPC once never could play again... It almost killed pinball for me its that bad of an idea!

Might as well just take the glass off.

But setting it to 8ball is perfectly acceptable IMHO.

Shadow is set to 5 ball right now in my house....still tough, but now I'm not trying to scratch my eyes out...I will change once I have put more games on it and start to get better.

Shadow is the *only* game I have ever set to five ball. Yes I will admit this shameful fact... And 90% of the time it STILL kicks my ass.

I have never set either of my games to 10-balls at all. I wouldn't either, that would last way too long. I once set JY to 5-ball to see how I did, but I still stuck with three ball. Have at it with 5 on NF, but not 10 (Assuming you still play it, that is).
