Quoted from cooked71:
Ah...no. I spent HOURS upon HOURS tweaking, leveling fine tuning, swapping crap playfields, lowering the right ramp so you could actually make the shot, adjusting subways so the ball didn't get stuck, changing the angle of the scoop eject so it didn't shoot sdtm, removing factory Mylar so the right loop registered, tweaking scoleri drops, adjusting slimmer level so he didn't wipe his ass over New York and so he would actually regiter hits, tuning the auto plunge so the ball didn't hit Marshmallow, installing airball protectors.......and after all that it still played like sh*t. Hours and HOURS.
But that's ok, the game wasn't for me. I sold it. Glad you like it, but don't give me that patronizing bullsh*t that it's because I don't know how to tweak a game. You have no idea.
well you missed the main and most important thing out of all those adjustments, you didn't adjust the flipper angles. Which is the SINGLE more important thing you can do to make GB shoot smooth.
And why the shit would you have to change the angles of the scoops. The settings let you adjust the power of the scoops. You should have no reason those balls shoot down the center. Little software adjustment and never happens ever.
never had a problem with the subway getting stuck. don't have problems with staypuft getting hit, never have a problem with that upper corner switch not registering, so I didn't have to deal with that.
Didn't need airball protectors because I bent my targets forward and added foam.
Adjusted the spiral ramp, cut the blue rubber down 1/4", lowered the top of the ramp down, lowered the exit of the ramp down. Adjusted the sidewall metal guide so it's as tight as spandex. It's still tight as shit and can make the shot 50% of the time now. Out of the entire game, that is the only shot that should have been turned 5 degrees more clockwise. Would have made it a much smoother and angled properly shot. All other shots flow like butter. If you angle your flippers correctly like all other games are and not sagging down in the outhole.
