    Yes, all the extra balls are collected from the upper left flipper.

    I finally got the sharpshooter achievement. I must've been just shy of it before because it popped for me the normal way.

    How do you get the extra ball after you have 10x multipliers? Do you go to the usual extra ball ramp?

    I got the sharpshooter achievement during gargoyle multiball. I'm pretty sure I hadn't taken down the spiders even once, so it's totally broken. Well, better this than a glitch in the table itself

    There is one thing that I don't like in this table: the GHOST letters to activate kickbacks (or hidden exits) don't stand out very well because it's pretty much blue on blue (low contrast) when the table isn't dimmed. I guess this is intentional to make the kickbacks harder to activate..?

    I had the same problem, so I started using the right flipper instead. It's a slightly more difficult shot for me, but I don't have to worry about accidentally starting a mission. Also, the rule sheet isn't quite right on this one. After completing the 3-way combo (stairway/citadel/sorcerer), You can shoot for any of the 3 ramps to get the stone. It doesn't have to be the stairway ramp.

    Thanks blue for the info on the sharpshooter achievement. It's either broken for me or I'm just not as fast as I think I am. I know I haven't completed the mission in under 20 secs, but I would swear I've cleared out the spiders that fast twice now

    Overall I really like the table too. It's probably one of my favorites.

    All of them are described in the table rules except for Whisper Awards and Save Whisper. I'm sure Shoryuken's guide will be out soon enough to explain everything but in the meanwhile:

    Whisper Award - hit the Whisper hole (to the right of the left orbit entrance) 4 times to be awarded a Whisper Award.

    Save Whisper: Prior to Midnight Madness starting you have a couple of second to save Whisper as she is drawn to her master. You have to let the ball go through her as she first makes her way up the Ghost Ramp and the down the Extra Ball ramp. It can be quite tricky to hit so you have to concentrate that when you take the shot, she is in the lane to be hit... hard to explain but you'll now when it happens.

    Of all the awards the one that would have been difficult for me to get in one go e.g. if the achievement was to get all 13 stones in one go, is the Tower Crawler Combo - its very hard for me to only hit that ramp and not by mistake start on of the missions and as you know once you start a mission... that is it towards Midnight Madness.

    I wonder how many times I would have to restart if I had to get that 13 stone achievement

    After you complete the initial skill shot, the Sorcerer's ramp on the left lights up. Hit that and you've got your super sill shot. It's similar in nature to what you needed to do for Captain America, but on the left side of the table.

    sorcerer's multiball, complete the multiball with all 3 balls to obtain an obsidian.

    gargoyle multiball, complete a super jackpot ( all "jackpots", then hit the citadel ramp and subsequent habitrail for a super) to grab another obsidian.

    The only one I completed so far was the Sorcerer Multiball, but this one I can complete quit regularly.

    As far as I understand it, you have to hit the red marked ramps and orbits. I might be off, cause the beginning always seems to be a bit of a blur to me, but I think it's either 5 or 6 hits and the ramps/orbits are always the same.
    In the end, the only red mark should be on the Sorcerer's ramp. At this point I have the feeling that it matters, how many balls you have left. If it's only one you seem to get the 20 second timer directly and have to hit the ramp on last time to win the mode.
    If you have more than 1 ball, you are able to shoot the remaining balls into the lane and so lock them in the purple cauldron. Again, if only one ball is remaining, the timer goes up and you have to finish. The bonus you get at the end seems to dependend on how many balls you were able lock into the cauldron again.
    So: 1. Shoot 5 or 6 ramps/orbits, 2. Shoot your remaining balls -if any- up the Sorcerer's ramp to add to the end bonus, 3. 20 sec timer for your last ball to finish the mode and collect the points + obsidian stone.

    I'm a bit clueless regarding the Gargoyle's Multiball. Somehow I seem to loose balls in this one very quickly.

    For Whisper Multiball I guess you have to catch her a certain number of times, but I never seemed to match the required amount of catches.

    Even if it's not a large amount of info, I hope it's helpful.

    Simple explanation; When you power up the skillshot its half way between 1 steam-venting stream and two steam venting streams on the ball launcher.

    On the launch lane, there's a gate, a hole on the left side, a rollover (small wire switch) right above it and another gate right above that.

    The goal is to launch the ball hard enough to hit the rollover and have the ball roll back into the hole.

    If you launch the ball too hard, it hits the second gate and it goes into the playfield. Launch the ball too weak and it goes into the hole without hitting the rollover (no points).
