Okay... I've made significant progress thanks to all of you posting!!!
I've got a version 1.1 almost ready to go... but still have many questions so before I publish I'm going to post explicit questions (and hopefully get some responses). Please quote the question when replying... and thank you (again) in advance!
Skill shot availability
A skill shot is available whenever a ball is served to plunger lane (excluding the start of multiball)
Question: What about after a HOADC collect shot? do you get a skill shot then? (Which would make doing this collection more valuable)
Skill shot scoring
Does the BALL skill shot start at 7500?
Need some serious help here... I've got virtually nothing. I believe I've read that the award depends upon what mode you are in... so please add/correct the below.
* During crystal ball mode - reverts to "normal" for 15 seconds (excluding flipper frenzy)
* During haunted mode - adds time (10 seconds?)
* During witch attack - ?
* During fireball frenzy - ?
* During emerald city multiball - ?
* During rescue multiball - ?
* During TNPLH - ?
* During Munchkin mode - ?
* During ???
* During no mode - variety of awards (spots rainbow letter, ...???)
I have Light Extra Ball, Spot Character, Multiball, Points (2,500, 5,000, 7,500, 10,000, …), and Light Special. Are there other awards?
I don't fully understand how the Munchkin Multiplier works. Assume it is added to the regular multiplier (so if at 4x via oz lanes and you have 2x from HOADC this adds to 6x). Is that correct or is it an independent multiplier?
Also, does it only apply to munchkin mode points or is it just a multiplier adder (for everything)
A few times I have spelled Rainbow with one shot (very early in the ball). How did I do this? (Was it a skill shot? Any or which one? Or ??? (I'm on 4.1 s/w).
Emerald City Multiball
Collect all 3 gifts... is the jewel awarded jewel or is it lit somewhere for collection (and if so, where)?
I'm certain the below has some errors. Please correct:
During this multiball the following jackpot shots are lit: Spinner, Left Orbit, Winkie Drop Target, Ramp, Right Orbit, and Throne Room. For each of those shots, the first time you hit it will award a 1x jackpot. The second time will award a 2x jackpot. The third time will award and 3x jackpot. And hitting it after that will award some less value.
Once a 3x jackpot has been achieved for a shot it will light a flashing R-E-S-C-U-E target letter on the castle mini-playfield (R – Spinner, E – Left Orbit, S – Winkie Drop Target, C – Ramp, U – Right Orbit, E – Throne Room). If you then hit that letter it will go solid and the castle doors will open for a short time and a shot into the Rescue Saucer which will award a Super Jackpot. (So it is possible to collect 6 super jackpots I’d guess?) (Can you hit the letter again and then the Rescue Saucer for a repeated super jackpot allowing infinite super jackpots?). [Note: I thought in a game I had that after getting a 3x the arrow in front of the castle doors blinks… and you have ot hit that door (3x?) to open it and then shoot the saucer for a super jackpot - with no letters being lit? So I'm certain this section has (my) errors]
Once all R-E-S-C-U-E letters have been lit (solid?) (by collecting 3x jackpots from all jackpot shots ?and hitting the flashing letters?) ?and at least one Super Jackpot has been collected? a Mega Jackpot can be collected by getting a search orbit to castle door combo (i.e. hitting the search orbit and then immediately hitting the castle doors). (Do you have to spell Rescue with all lit targets first?).
Once a mega jackpot is collected is the jewel awarded immediately or is it lit somewhere for collection (and if so, where)?
Once a mega jackpot is collected how does the multiball continue (back to 1x jackpots and cycle? victory laps? ???)
Need description of this mode (what do you do during this mode?)
Need description of this multiball (what do you do during this mode?)
Wicked Witch Attack
How many hits to start?
1 if skill shot... how many if not?
Does the number needed to start it increase each time?
The shots can be changed by ???
After getting 10 jackpots the is the jewel awarded immediately or is it lit somewhere for collection (and if so, where)?
Battle the Wicked Witch
After liquidating the witch... is jewel awarded immediately or is it lit somewhere for collection (and if so, where)?
Are the battle shots Spinner, Left Orbit, Right Orbit, and Throne Room?? Any others? (Not the witch?)
If you liquidate the witch... what happens next? (Ding Dong the Witch is Dead multiball?) and please describe...
Is the glinda target included as a haunted target? If so, does she still give glinda awards?
Haunted Forest Multiball
Score points at the haunted shots, haunted targets, haunted holes, and haunted bumpers.
Is there any type of jackpot shot or ???
Again... is jewel awarded immediately or is it lit somewhere for collection (and if so, where)?
