I just got a TSPP. Before resetting to factory defaults I noticed the previous owner had the settings very easy. I'd like to make sure the posts are in their factory positions.

Could someone with a TSPP take a photo of their outlanes so I can compare? thanks.

On mine, on the left lane, all the way to the bottom position on both. On the right lane position 2 and position 3 on the bottom.

That game is so friggin' hard that I have my outlanes covered! And I still can't get to SDMEWM (although I got real close once).

Keefer somewhere on pinside mentioned he could play a "perfect" game and finish tspp in about 30 minutes. I have a feeling I will never see all that it has, but that's ok .

From the factory, mine came as follows:

On the left outlane: left side is 2nd from top, right side is at the bottom
On the right outlane: left side (or top section) is second from the top, right side is at the bottom

I don't find the game that hard, until I get to Alien Invasion, which in ten years of ownership, I've never been able to complete. My high on the game is 143 million, but that was years ago. I recently scored 111 million. I never tire of this game.

I absolutely love, love, love TSPP. It's one of those games where you can flail at the ball and still be in the middle of something, or you can be a technician and try to get to certain modes.

Any suggestions for moving these posts from one spot to another?

My plunger has a tendency to bounce the pinball off the first post in the plunger lane causing it to bounce immediately into the right drain lane. I see the far right most post is sticking out just a bit and causing the bounce. Does this occur to anyone else?

I just got done messing with the outlanes on my new TSPP. I set them to what I believe to be the easiest setting. I didn't find anything in the manual but I'm thinking A is the hardest and D the easiest since that closes off the outlane the most and then set the other to 3 since that opens up the chance that the ball will drop into the sooner lane.

I just started a thread about this same issue and someone pointed me to this thread. With your posts in the "D" setting, did you find that to be easier?

A-3 would likely be the easiest. Most bounces off of the lane rubber will just go back into the shooter lane.

Quoted from Law:

Huh. My initial thought was that that diagram was right and that the easiest setting would be the one that keeps the ball out of there the most. But I think you're right now looking at it more. Especially with the '3' position being lower than the unmovable one.

Using factory defaults myself, but it's interesting to think about.

I changed the posts to A-3 last night but have yet to play as I'm also doing an LED upgrade. I'll post again once I've put some games on it.

Bump- anyone ever try the A-3 vs. D-3 configuration? I'm curious.

#14 5 years ago

I think A-3 is easier, most go back in the shooter lane as mentioned above. However, if you take the upper post out completely(remove from A) it's even easier.

I switched to A-3 and couldn't be happier. That said, I've recently sold the pin pending pickup in a week or so but that switch was a very beneficial change for my enjoyment of the game.

#16 5 years ago

A-3 is by far the most user friendly set up on the right lane if you use both posts but as Helicopter mentioned, the most user friendly set up is if you take out the top post and leave the bottom in the 3 position.

You can nudge out of most outlane drains and hard rebounds often end up back in the shooter lane.
I think Rlerman above has the correct setting for factory.

#17 5 years ago

I wanted to set mine up harder as that right in/outlane area was too easy from the factory. I set my posts in D1 like the left picture so the ball can't get to the shooter lane. Then I removed the rubber from the post that divides the inlane and outlane. Originally I removed that post altogether; but then it was too brutal.

#18 5 years ago

I would open up both all the way and turn off EBs.

Thanks you, this information was exactly what I was looking for. Had been noticing a disparity between the two outlanes, found my right side was factory and left was pretty much the opposite. Looks like they've been that way a long time...
