Quoted from GoodOmens:
So emailed stern and they are not aware of the orbit issue. Seems I too am having the 50/50 issue for trying for the super skill shot and either bricking or hitting that top up post (which sometimes is up or sometimes just comes up and back down quickly). Wants me to do some switch tests and send them a video.
Don't know if it's a code bug or an issue with a flaky switch. Unsure what would make the post come up and back down while holding the left flipper....
Edit: It seems the post is always up if the child is lit - even during a skill shot so that's def a bug.
It seems like there is some confusion about the post at the top of orbit.
1 - Its job is to send the ball to the Child area / top lanes
2 - It will do this from either direction. Meaning from the left orbit, right orbit, or from the shooter lane.
3 - If the Child is lit it will energize try to divert the ball. Maybe this is undesirable from the shooter lane but its not a bug! : --- )
4 - If you hold in the left flipper while the ball is leaving the shooter switch and keep it held until the ball exits the shooter lane the top post will stay down (again, unless The Child is lit). If the ball doesnt come all the way around maybe it didnt transition from the shooter lane to the orbit well or found something else to slow it down. It probably was not the top post.
With reguard to the super skill shot -
The Super Skill Shot only starts if you are still holding the left flipper when the ball reaches the left orbit (The 'C' roll over). If you left the flipper go before it will not start.
If you see behavior that is not like this please do make a video and send it to [email protected]
It hope this helps.
