Quoted from FatPanda:
If you've got the washer fix and you're updated on the latest code (official version is 1.3.0 but there's a beta code on Scott's beta page), then you should be good to go.
If you are feeling particularly motivated, many (including myself) have swapped out the power supply fan for a quieter one. Plus if you don't have one, you really, really, really need to get a shaker. It has the best shaker integration in any pinball game I've played.
Some people have swapped out LCD panels for something that isn't as "washed out" as the stock one, but if you play with the settings on the stock monitor, you should find something that works.
Also if you're having trouble with scoop rejects, bending the scoop down slightly should help a bit, but the scoop is tough to hit from the right flipper.
Thanks for all the information. I do not have the washer fix installed (I was informed my playfield is a late run where they changed what the problem was), but I suppose I can add them on if folks think that is wise. KT told me she's going to mail the washers for the high-traffic areas tomorrow (I assume I can just refer to this thread to know which posts are the problem children).
I did notice the fan power supply was, well, noticeable. Is that just installing a different model fan I take it? I've done that for computers before when the fans start to fail on power supplies. I don't notice it so much when a game is going, but definitely do when it is sitting idle.
I do not have a shaker. I'll consider it (I'm not normally super excited about shaker motors, nice but optional is my typical view). I am interested in what you said about the monitor as I did find it very washed out (I really only had location Sterns to compare it to, but I was very surprised at how faint it looked). I'll mess with the settings and see what I can get going with that.
I'll experiment more with the scoops. I think I just brick the shot mostly (often from the left). I'm still adjusting the power settings on the coils to try and find something comfortable without seeming excessive.
Thanks for all the suggestions, they are very helpful!
