    Do you adjust your settings for replay or special awards?
    If so, what is your flavor?
    Chime in for any other adjustments your prefer as well!

    Depends on the game, usually extra ball. If its in house on free play?? what good is a replay/credit award?

    I’m curious about house rules. Ive been torn between points or extra ball. You are right, probably depends on game!

    I like hearing knock for free games, even on free play. Otherwise you get 5 xtra balls per game, which I know you can adjust

    Stock or extra ball limit.

    On my Aerosmith (Pro) it's replay award=extra ball* and special award=points. Free play of course.

    (* - I have one of the gameplay extra balls disabled to balance it out -- the "dead shot" one in this particular pin.)

    for our personal home games:
    extra balls= none/points (pends code)
    special = points
    ball saves= none
    settings - difficult/tournament
    and of course
    tight tilt, back legs jacked way up, out lane posts pulled out completely or at least up all the way..

    "Backbox brightness while ball in play" turned down to 15 - 20%. Gets rid of unwanted glare

    Set free play
    Shut off the annoying knocker

    I leave Replay and Special on Credit for modern Sterns. I used to set them to Extra Ball. But as I got better at pinball, I started to feel like that Extra Ball was too much. There are already a lot of ways to earn Extra Balls in Stern games.

    Extra ball because you deserve something for getting what you would normally get a free game out of.

    Special set for points

    No annoying knocker screeching

    No tutorial

    Free play

    Coin door ball save on

    Yes set it low, factory setting is way to bright. Or look for ZZ Top And go get yourself some cheap sunglasses
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

    And turn off the ability to restart!
