    Quoted from korgakoth:

    That guy is gross and have sex with their machines. Some of his takes are far from been watchable without being a pervert.

    ...

    ... And this thread just took a sharp turn.

    Cheers!

    No nudging tutorials, but DeadFlip has some good ball control tutorials that may be more to your liking. I swear I watched some of AbeFlips videos and didn't get that vibe...

    All the top players have sex with their machines. You gotta dominate those things.

    I can’t fight against the rule 34 of Internet

    #59 65 days ago

    Any other tutorial sources over there?

    I can ask ChatGPT but it may suggest things like reverse pitch or something even crazier

    #60 65 days ago

    LOL, I watched all the abe flips vids here and I never saw anything gross.

    #61 65 days ago

    Think ol' Korg may have a loose screw- disregard.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    A good way to practice getting your adrenaline under control is to take the glass off and put a sock in the center drain.
    Now practice trapping every ball, for 20 minutes.
    Then practice never trapping, taking every shot on the fly, for 20 minutes .
    Do this until you hit zen.
    Zen will come quicker with practice.
    Shut the game off so it doesn't record the high score.

    I do this with the new Sterns and just put it on switch test, then practice all the shots.

    That’s a new way to do it

    For some reason, the title of this thread makes me think of this gem by Joe Walsh.

    Quoted from sullivcd40:

    My elbows were bothering me quite a bit because I used to slide save or even death save quite a bit. I’ve sort of banned these techniques for myself and have been working on slap saves instead. This has helped my elbow issues but I did break a blood vessel in my finger yesterday.

    Quoted from titanpenguin:

    I think I have gotten better over time. I can nail the same 1/4 post 3 times in a row and miss the ramp or lane every time. Do you realize how precise and accurate of a shot that is?

    I'm awesome at hitting ramps when the mode is hit standups. Then awesome at standups the rest of the time.

    Quoted from Sandman33:

    I was going to check, now I'm not so excited to do so. Gross or not?

    And when you need to hit ramps and standups… you get into the scoop

    #69 65 days ago

    It only goes in the scoop when I'm absolutely trying not too.

    Quoted from RobW:

    I did this and I wish that pressing the action button gave you a ball.

    It’s a good way that does not require remove the glass

    They're extremely well-made, not gross tutorials. I think the OP is probably referring to the "wicked shimmy" segment of this video, which got a little... suggestive for comedic effect. Not everyone has a sense of humor, I guess.

    Different strokes for different folks I suppose. Apologies if you were offended, obviously not my intention.

    #73 63 days ago

    Tim Sexton has a couple good videos. I'm actually in the process of changing my "finger stance" because of a recent video and I'm liking the results!

    Do you have a weird sense of humor I’m not picking up on? This is the weirdest comment I’ve seen in quite some time.

    #75 62 days ago

    I was stuck on a performance plateau as well and then came across this tutorial:

    His tips made a lot of sense and since then my scores and tournament performance have noticeably improved. It might be coincidental but I’m a believer! He also has a couple of other videos on flipping and nudging which are worth checking out.

    Thanks for the kind words, but you have no idea about pinball, which is why you keep failing.
    Check out my latest tutorial; it may contain some useful information for you.

    Not offended at all! it was just a comment.

    I don't know whom to credit for this image, but I am perpetually stuck in the first third of "getting better at modes"

    Dunning-Krueger in real time.

    Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

    This happens because you finally have an idea of what to shoot for, you’re no longer just “playing to stay alive” now you’re trying to complete objectives and thus you start realizing your mistakes and taking risks!
    Eventually you will start to “figure it out” and crush it!

    What are these shots and objectives everyone is talking about? I thought it was just 1) ball rolls down 2) slap both flipper buttons.

    Hah. I'm just after "Code Update." Reason being is they added that damn 4th of July mini wizard and I can't get there. I came within one more shot again last night. So aggravating! So yeah, my scores have suffered because I'm only trying to do one thing.

    Well, hell. Now I am too.
