    Do you think I should start a new thread and title it: The (almost) complete guide to kicbacks, multipliers, ballsavers and extra balls? I could get one of the admins to delete this thread and hopefully make the new one a sticky. Again, cheers for all the help, everyone.
    Whats wrong with this one? It has all (or most) of the info it says in the title. The only tables missing stuff are really the older ones that not as many people are interested in. If you want to make another one, thats cool, just saying there is nothing wrong with this one. Its a handy reference.

      Cool mate, you're probably right.

      On another note, I just found another way to get an extra ball on Excalibur. Successfully complete "Expel the invaders" side mission and then defeat the knight. Collect extra ball from the quest hole.

        From what i can tell, with Excalibur, the rewards for completing a quest/mission can vary. I know I have gotten an extra ball via this method also. I then did it another time and did not get it as a reward. HOWEVER, it might just be that I did this mission during a "shoot again" ball and could not get another extra ball. I need to video my damn games and do a guide to sort it all out.

          I've had the extra ball twice now from this method. Maybe you already had your maximum of 2 extra balls when you completed 'Expel the invaders'?

          Getting more and more into Excalibur recently. Great table.

          Edit: Another method I just discovered for an extra ball. The light lit after I had the Merlin multiball going for a while. I was too concerned with keeping the balls alive to notice how I did it, unfortunately.

            I got an extra ball playing with Merlin (Hmmm, I think that is poor wording ), I think it came from a random award spelling DUB though, I think that might be how you came by yours.

              A bump in hopes someone will fill in the Mars info

                Kickbacks: 3 left roll overs next to the left flipper and the 3 right side ones for the other side.
                Multiplier: The 3 lights above the bumpers.
                Ball Saver: 5 targets, 2 on the left ramp, 2 on the right ramp and the final one is to the right of the mission hole and left of the sattelite hole.
                Extra Balls: Get to 10x multiplier then hit the mini-orbit.

                  I think blue just did a comprehensive table guide for Mars. Might be able to rip off some information from that.

                    The only thing that's missing now is the relevant info for Speed Machine and Extreme. There are most likely multiple ways of earning these rewards on all the tables so please keep adding to this if you find a method that isn't already covered. This is quite close to being finished now. Good work guys!

                      There's also an extra ball on "Blade" for having an "exceptionally" low score on your first 2 balls. And who here still dares to claim that pinball is unforgiving?

                        Just a quick clarification, Agents does not award an extra ball for partnership multi-ball. If there is an extra ball on this table, I do not know how to activate it.

                          Heathen is correct it was a theory I was working that I disproved. There is an extra ball, I have earned it just have to track what I did, at the time I did it was a partnership multiball but it was not from beating it.

                            Yeah. And we both know how well YOU "track" what you do. LOL It's a miracle you've been able to even put a guide together, much less two.

                            While I'm laughing at you....

                            I just bested my Excalibur score. Posted the 10th best score ever...only to find that my internet connection bombed and the score could not be posted to the leaderboard. 444K down the drain.

                            You me now laugh at ME. LOL

                              While you bring this up, I'd like to request the "strategy guide" sticky, be renamed "table guide...." A table guide is a detailed description of a table's features, lay out, and modes with basic information about how to trigger everything and what does what.

                              A "strategy guide", to me, would suggest a guide that would contain things such as scoring information (what on the table gives you "X" number of points), methods of attacking the table for maximum scoring, and how to hit specific shots.

                              Personally, I've seen many well put together table guides on this site, but quite frankly, I don't think the strategic aspect of most tables has really been delved into but sparingly. Now, I'm sure some folks might not be too forthcoming with information that could provide others with the ammunition needed to take down their own scores, but, I'd be more than willing to share what tips and tricks I have (and I admit, they're few LOL).
