So I've owned a Shadow for several months. Granted, I haven't had hours upon hours to play, but I've got some decent time at the machine. Love the machine (a lot) but holy moly, I still suck at it. Curious to see how other folks fare. Anyone averaging 300M or more?

Quoted from realroadrage:

Just achieved my high score of over 1B this past weekend, but I have yet to reach the final battle. What previous poster said was true: one game could be 600M followed by a 30M stinker. I seem to average around 300M like OP. Brutal machine; physics and placement of objects seem to generate lots of drains. As my only machine, I can say I never really get tired of playing it, but is that a function of being a great machine or me only having one?

LOL. I certainly don't average 300M. More like 175M. I still don't even dominate the high scores. It's comically embarassing.

Quoted from Pinhead87:

The Shadow is my favorite pin that I own, and I have put no kidding, 8k plays on it in the year ive owned it. My highest score was 1.9 bill, ive been to the final battle many many times, only to come up short by 1 or 2 remaining shots time and time again. My average score is around 500-700 mill, I play 3 ball on medium settings with outlanes at medium as well. Its a tough game to start out on, however I started out with a BSD, and put those besides eachother, bsd will kick my ass 3x as hard The Shadow will.

Lol. Got just that, with BSD next to TS (second from left with Aurich's translite package) . Recognize that DM?

Quoted from t2:

I have mixed feelings undeout the game. Have only had one for about 6 months with limited Pacheco the d not sure how I feel about the machine. I probably need to learn the rules better to fully enjoy.
My wall is staying up and in test mode comes up check switch 51, wall target, and e.r. target bad check switch and coil. Advice on how to proceed to get fixed?

There are numerous possible reasons for that . Have you run switch test for the opto in the sanctum and solenoid test to check the wall? Results? That issue will definitely drag down enjoyment.

Quoted from jayhawkai:

Anyone try GI LED OCD in Shadow yet? Seems like a perfect candidate along with White Water and a few others with dimming effects.

Huh? What is that?
