    your ball number doesn't change when playing an extra ball.

    so until it goes up you can't get any more after the five.

    once you can get to ball 2, then you are allowed 5 more extra balls. they...

    there are three types of limits.
    extra balls stacked, extra balls per ball in play, and extra balls per game.

    for later williams games, the second one is very common.

    as for tilting, i would...

    the trail is really subtle. it's not glowy white. but it's there.

    Real tournament tables are often made artificially difficult. Often with more drastic measures. I do think the tournament flippers are a little weak from what I played in the beta.

    The Multiball release does aim for the tip of the left flipper in real life and the other problem doesn’t affected it one bit. You are probably used to games without the lightning flips on location. ...

    another thing that can cause lag in SOME games is if surround sound is enabled in hdmi settings on the console. some tvs assume that if they get a dolby digital stream or dts that it's a movie, and...

    I am 100% sure this is intentional.

    the reason the ball saver was put in is to deal with loosing the ball right after a lock out of the bumpers down the left outlane.

    since all balls that do...

    it has to do with lighting effects.

    as i said the table itself doesn't slow at all, but for some reason too many cpu cycles are stolen from the emulation, causing IT to double up on frames.

    well if they can add on more leaderboard, then it could be "zen/arcade/tournament"

    but the real issue is that zen physics flippers AIM correct, but trap the ball too easily. if arcade flippers...

    buy uncensored also get censored. but buy censored should NOT get uncensored.

    that's what i said. the standalone uncensored app would need a teen rating. some Williams games not in family mode do fall afoul of that.

    ideally it would be a one way cross buy. if you buy...

    Here's a suggestion for a testing method.

    Implement a learning testing bot, with infinite rewind.

    Awww. :( at least i was able to test the rollover detection somewhat.

    But with zen powerups it's possible to cross two billion boundaries at once. this may mess up the rollover detection.

    Well, my rollover i just did now was detected. :) 996 superscore from that table. pretty sure someone who choked less and abused score multiplier wizard power can do much better.

    new strategy. after lighting all captive ball, start multiball normally. then whack the cpative ball to combine rock the boat with an active...
  20. The Zen Nudge Pass(tm) still works, even in tournament.

    This is a way to transfer the ball from one flipper to the other after shooting a ramp.
    you simply nudge straight up as the ball rolls down the flipper, and it goes onto the other one.

    that said,...

    odd. that doesn't happen for me.

    but i suspect it's related to the voice slowdown.

    It's the EMULATION part that's slowing down and failing to skip frames. that's why you aren't getting an FPS...

    i think the flippers need to angle the ball up a lil more in tournament mode. fairly often it's literally impossible to shot a boat ramp after shooting another one. they often shoot wide despite all...
  23. Suggestion. allow one ball challenge in classic mode.

    as a special difficulty.
    arcade
    tournament
    one ball.
    one ball tournament.

    :)
  24. Turns out Zen mode is hilariosuly easy for fish tales.

    1) catch ball off of plunge with hold trap.
    2) shoot long cast loop from trap while it's still lit.
    3) hold trap off of THAT
    4) repeat 3 more times (4 after you tour the captive ball once)
    5)...

    the trails are a lot more subtle in the williams games. they are not bright glowy white. and they are ONLY visible with remaster gfx on.
