Quoted from Agent_Hero:
I'd almost consider that cheating--at best, it's not OEM location.
Every pin needs to be adjusted in some way, and I never found anything in the manual about an OEM position, just standard pics of the shot map. There are no adjustment holes for it obviously - People adjust flippers in different ways (most can't even agree on using the hole or lining up with the guides, and some games seem to have a slight droop)
To me it makes no sense having a clunky side shot coupled with a clunky mode shot , and since making this adjustment there is no denying the game feels like it was meant to be set this way - holding the flipper feeds the ball to start a mode - almost like you need to hold up the left upper flipper on TZ to hit the camera.
I just want the game to play the best it can, there is no reason to make the game less enjoyable or play worse over it, but I encourage people to try it at least.
Maybe someone can hit up Brian Eddy over at stern to get his take
