    Is anybody else experiencing stuttering? When Fred says "shoot the machine" I get a little bit - then there are other times I get it on some other animations and sometimes it makes it almost unplayable. I changed some of the available options in the script which seemed to help a little but it didn't eliminate it. Also it seems to take forever to load compared to other DMD tables. I have a mediocre pc nothing fancy but I usually don't get any stutter on the older DMD tables.

    Also the link for the table takes you to the Red & Ted table (the text part of the link is ok so I just copied & pasted that).

      I've fixed the link. Thanks for that.

      I haven't played this in a while but don't recall having any issues when I did play it.

        Just had a few games with the other half no noticeable scores but there’s plenty to aim for....
        looks like it’s a high scoring table

          I like the virtual location behind this table.

            1,180,043,960 Looks like I better go read the tip sheet..... The machine is still giving me stuttering issues (usually leads to ball loss) - it's almost like the DMD animation is causing it. The carpet around the table reminds me of the carpet at PAPA back in the day.

              Runs fine for me, but I did notice this table takes longer to load than any other I can remember. It might just be a more complicated and detailed table that requires higher PC specs.

                      I wasn't sure so I looked it up.

                      Fred's Choice
                      Timer starts at 20 seconds. The orbits and centre lane are lit. The left orbit is Shot A (20 Million), the centre lane is Shot B (10 Million), and the right orbit is Shot C (15 Million). When a shot is hit, it's value goes up by 3 Million. The display is very nice during this round, and the sound is cool too. Three different voices try and convince you which shot to hit: "A!", "No C!", "Shoot it up the centre!", "All of the above?!". The quotes are continuous, and are played at random, (i.e. not in the above order.)

                          767,503,030.......thankfully I'll be back home in time to play the last couple of days of this game on my cabinet. A laptop and gamepad doesn't quite cut it.

                              I wanted to share this early because it Took me a while to work out the taxi passenger carry issue and how to set the Backglass/POV to make the shot which turned the game into a super fun one and the ball drained down the side less with the wider view.

ID:	2171798 I find this table plays better a little narrower at the top. These are my settings.
