122218820 shift gears? I’m red lining in 1st. This is a nice game. Graphics reminds my of Black Knight 2000,

Yes, shift gears whenever you can as it unlocks the next part of the game. You shift gears by default through pressing launch (the real game has a hi-low shifter) but you can map that to magna save or something if you like.

😂I can picture it Mozzie. It’s actually pretty sweet and funny. They’ll probably make a movie about it one day. Maybe :unsure probably a romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. :cry:D I Shifted gears a couple of times while the ball is rocketing down the gutso and I’m still working out how not to miss an opportunity. I like Jars idea of remapping to the right Magna save. If I can work it out I’ll post the mod.

Oh. I learned something. Left magna Save or plunger shift gears. No need for script changes.

Left magna save is likely to be down shift, which I think doesn't matter in general play when it says shift gears, but it does go down gears in Video Mode. I always go straight to 5th in video mode.

125,129,600......another DMD game, another uncompetitive score from me.:(

Always good to leave a bit of room to move Crakkers.:cool: I learnt that from you. I don't know if you remember that you wooped me in Back to the Future and Teenage Mutant turtles and Im predicting a big finish from you here as well. As for strategy Im trying to build up the rpm lights via left and right lane to get red line mania multiball then trying to cradle seperate a much as possible to slow the game down to hit the super charger then right lock and anything else thats lit. Scoring during multiball I think is the way to go. Left magna save also changes gears up which is handy if you have a right flipper shot. Enjoy mate this is a great game.

238,288,190......well that's a bit better. Managed a red line mania. Played this using the keyboard instead of the gamepad - much easier on my dodgy thumb! Probably a good job I played this game before reading your post Russty, or I might have thought about things too much and panicked.:o
