    Isn't John Trudeau the designer that likes to space the flippers further apart. I would be all over Ghostbusters if it wasn't for that.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    have you played the game much? Teh flipper gap is really not an issue. the game has lots of safe shots with safe returns for controlled play. For example both scoop kickouts are designed so they perfectly kick out to opposing flipper for a passive bounce to the other flipper. Both ramps return to flipper. Orbits are safe returns. Game has alot of safe controlled play and if anything the flipper gap helps to make the game the right amount of difficult. I guess if you want it easier you can install the cheater post but that is not what the designed intended.

    If 95% of all modern DMD games have a fixed distance between flippers why change that formula. If the intention was to make the game more difficult then design it that way with the layout and not cheat by making flippers further apart. We are all used to the way the ball bounces from one flipper to another and with this design we need to fundamentally change the way we play such as dead stops, bounce overs etc. The wider flippers seem like an afterthought in that since the game layout was too forgiving or easy the quick solution was to make the flippers wider. Other than that I love Ghostbusters, just not the wider flipper distance.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Wider flipper game is a signature John T thing

    In response to the OP's question thats why I like John T the least.
