Hey for all you guys struggling with the auto launch to the left outlane, or just the outlanes in general. I'm not the best nudger, but damned if this game doesn't require you to nudge by bumping the machine forward. Don't try to use side to side nudges, just get use to bumping it forward when the ball is toward the outlanes, or even screaming from the auto launch. This has made a world of difference to me.
I played some games with Steve Ritchie at TPF a few different times and he always seemed to nudge by bumping the machine forward. Seems like this one really responds to his style of play.
I did tighten the left outlane too, but not the right (there's already an escape save there). Helped the wife and kids out quite a bit and I get to benefit from it too.
So far my high scores are just shy of 2 billion. Death Star multiball definitely gives a lot of points, but I've gotten as many points without lighting it up (different characters).
