    And the winners are..... (machines for tomorrow night):

    * Demolition Man
    * Creature From The Black Lagoon
    * Ghostbusters Pro
    * Medieval Madness (Remake)
    * Swords Of Fury
    * Stingray
    * The Walking Dead Pro
    * Magic Castle

    Back-up machine in case of early faults/breakdowns will be Batman '66

    With the Netherworld Pin-golf on this weekend, the side comp will be a 'Pin-golf style' event.
    Simply start ANY multiball on TWILIGHT ZONE on any ball during your game to earn an entry to win a prize. There will be 3 winners drawn at random. (Only one entry per game played, but you can earn as many entries as you like until the main competition has finished).

    Have just been informed from Netherworld that Creature From the Black Lagoon has issues and has been pulled from tonight's comp. Batman '66 was the backup machine and will be used in it's place

    Now this may be controversial but needs to be cleared up before the comp starts. Is the “short plunge” allowed on Ghostbusters?

    Yes. If you wish to do it that is fine

    Even the "exploit" or "hack" is fine unless mentioned otherwise by the TD before the comp begins.
    The so called exploit is not consistent and seeing how low we score anyway on that machine, it's not a big deal to easily start a mode or get 10% on 50M :-D

    I wouldn't use the term "soft plunge" tho, as you can and even HAVE to soft plunge on almost any Stern (GB, GOT, GOTG, MET, Kiss, Aerosmith, the Sopranos come to mind, there's probably more) to avoid pops or playfield validation and get a few free shots at something valuable.

    I don't think Ghostbusters should be in any comp (where do you see it in major US comps?)

    <violon music fade-in>

    cue in Michi for a speech on Trudeau and Ghostbusters scoring

    I've talked in length about how to fix that machine...

    - Skillshots need to be able to be disabled in the settings. All of them. First mode would be started by hitting Ghost once, then a major shot to pick a mode ladder
    - video mode shouldn't be available as a skillshot EVER, or its value should be halved. You want to play pinball? Play pinball
    - the left scoop should have a ball save like the right scoop (premium/LE) / right saucer (Pro)
    - no 10% of additional score, ever.
    - magna slings should have a tournament mode where they act more like sling shots and less like HUOYHYUHU there goes your ball straight down the center

    It's a great arcade/collector machine, sounds great, looks good; but it's a no go machine in tournaments.
