Hey everyone, I've had Space Station for a while now, and though I love it, one of the more infuriating aspects of it is the left orbit to lock shot, which in my case would reject nearly all shots made to it. I'm not sure if this issue is universal for all Space Stations, but I think I've found a solution I thought I'd share. By placing some Weather stripping foam on the backing of the VUK, I've found that the ball successfully locks nearly every time. This solution is similar to the Indiana Jones mode start reject fix, but is slightly more precarious as the VUK is in a very tight spot under the upper playfield, and if placed too low, the solenoid will kick the Weather stripping off entirely.

Thanks for posting. Mine only rejects once in a while. Sonic has started carrying dead drop foam and this is one application. There are claims out there that dead drop foam is superior than "ordinary" foam, but I have not experimented. Just FYI.

For it's thickness to impact and it's lonegevity...it is superior to stuff you can get at Home Depot...
