Having watched a lot of videos, I notice that on many Twilight Zone machines, the kickout often can hit the right flipper that is down and provide a reliable bounce over to the left flipper for an easy trap. Mine doesn't quite do that though, it actually comes out a little more toward the middle causing some difficulty in either trapping or getting a reliable bounce to the other flipper.
I guess I'm wondering if the kickouts on these machines differ from machine to machine or if they are supposed to be standardized so that it provides a clean bounce over to the left flipper. If the latter, I'd be interested in knowing the best way to accomplish that. I've looked around the slot machine setup and wasn't quite sure the best way to get a kickout just a touch more to the right (facing the machine). Any help on that is appreciated.
I've also noticed another issue where I'll sometimes get a kickout that goes SDTM. This seems to only happen in about 5% of the balls, and it feels like it happens after the slot machine has had repeated kickouts in a short period of time. Much more frequently with the powerball too. Just wondering if this might be a sign of wear in a part or something else.
Any help on this is appreciated. The game still plays well, but I've wondered if some minor tweaks could improve it a great deal.
