I've shook the (%$ out of my share of games over the years. I've been playing my 2 machines no nudge lately with no shaking whatsoever.I've noticed little difference in my average score.I concentrate more on the flipper action during the game.It may be an age thing,I try to set the machines up to optimum play and keep them that way but I guess I'm tired of manhandling pinball machines.
Also,does anyone play without play field glass? A raw pinball experience on an EM. I'll play a few games this way after waxing, like it.
How about removing the back panel(or leaning it against the back wall) to let the chimes and bells sing?
