Thanks a lot

Quick question on rules... Say I fail DTR, and then I get everything completed (7 gifts, TABA, and all 3 MBs) and then start DTR again... Will beating it send me into Valinor or do I have to defeat DTR before starting the DTR prior to Valinor?

Also, how many shots to the left orbit (forget the name of the hole it goes to in the top right) do you need to get the second MB?

Thanks!

Its not a number of shots up the left orbit that triggers the multi ball, you have to collect 5000 souls. You can get there by left orbit, skill shot on plunge, and from the right orbit and center shot during war of the ents.

I haven't sniffed valinor so cant help you there.

If you mean you failed DTR after completing everything else you would need to get back to DTR by restarting the 3 mbs(but not finish) and then restart DTR ,if you complete that DTR then you will be at valinor

So rereading your first question which is a 2 parter my answer is yes,no

Regarding your second question do you mean second EB from tower shots? I think it is 47?

#6505 7 days ago

Is there an ending animation for TABA? I beat it for the first time.a few days ago and was a little surprised to not see any sort of completion animation. I went straight from my last TABA shot into ROTK mb, so I'm not sure if that cutoff some sort of animation (guessing not, but curious)

No special ending animation...just points. A bit disappointing.

Yes, tower shots is what I meant. Crap, I was at like 40.

As for DTR, I failed the first attempt, but then completed everything, and started DTR (and failed).

But had I finished DTR then, I would have been at Valinor?

The last thing that you have to do before you can reach Valinor is DTR.

Shit, I was close then!!!

I've been one shot to the ring away from Valinor, but that time, I had DTR completed earlier in the game.

Now that I know this, it doesn't put so much pressure on me having to complete DTR prior to starting it after I get all other requirements.

2 years I've owned this game, and still in my opinion, the best game ever made!

#6510 6 days ago

You only need to complete DTR at the end after meeting all the other requirements to get to valinor

Completing it earlier just gets you an elf gift

If you get everything else done completing DTR is pretty stressful !!

This is true but if you don’t DTR earlier it means you’ve lost ball. To beat this game, you need balls! Figuratively and literally! LOL

Just to make sure you are clear, you have to complete the 3 movie multiballs. Getting to the multiballs is the easy part. Finishing ROTK multiball is the hardest part.

Yes, I finished all 3 of them. ROTK is a tough mofo to complete. I think it's done it like 5 times since I've owned the game.

Well, still no Valinor, but not upset about that at all. I almost don't want to get it because it might take away some of that excitement about getting there.

The bottom one is a translite, top 2 are the BG. I am not sure which one I would like more so I ordered them all, most likely will sale the ones I am not keeping.

What is PL? It's not Pinball Life (I just checked). Interested in learning more about obtaining said beauties for myself.

Quoted from DeathHimself:

Finally straightened out that leaning heroine addict Saruman, he is upright on his feet once again and added a mini map of Middle Earth which isn’t quite finished yet.

Love the map....anyone make these?

For some reason, this switch doesn't register during gameplay. This has never been an issue before. During switch tests it works fine. It's like the ball doesn't raise the gate enough to trigger the switch anymore. Any ideas on how to physically bend something to trigger the switch again? Or is there something else that should be done? I rarely fix my games and don't want to bend/break something if it's not the smart thing to do.
