Double flipper game :011:

went into the garage tonight to play some of this but I didn't have it, or the bg. and then the couch claimed me.

Maybe on the weekend..

Did we play this VP9 before skids ? It's ringing a bell.

For a double flipper game this is a good 'un.

You still can't trap on the lower flipper though, cause to top comes down and slams the ball. Just a flipper spacing issue I guess. You can live with it

you mean analogue nudge settings ? @skids (https://www.aussiearcade.com/member.php?u=7493) post your current settings and what board you are using.

everyone's setup is going to be different depending on how you have mounted your board.

when i was setting mine up, i mounted my board (pcb out of a sidewinder pro) while using the vp10 analogue nudge test table, then tweaked the mounting till the balls on the table were not sliding off on either the x or y axis.

i'm using these settings in analogue nudge in vp10:

x gain 275%
y gain 50%
deadzone 3%

everything else left defaults.

i upped my deadzone a bit just cause the exciters (feedback speakers) otherwise interfered with ball trajectory.

I'm not sure I'll even get another crack at this table (baby arrived, due to come home today).

But does anyone know if you can get an extra Ball? I watched the video posted and it said it would light after getting big game spelt, it didn't for me. I also find the letter near the spinner do not always light.

Yeah I've never got extra ball lit, or awarded. I haven't checked the game settings, or looked at that video, maybe Dedrok knows ?

This was one of my favourites of VPGL9, I love a drop target pinny, and there's a lot to be had. Never thought I would like a double flipper game as much as I did, of all the games so far probably gave this one the most time.

Will keep cracking on it too, would like 2 Million.
