What about time changes during the game? 1st ball in daylight, 2nd ball is twilight, 3 ball is darkness. Playfield gets darker/ different lighting, changes in music. Harder objectives on 3 rd ball, so make your first ball counts!

Not saying I'd be able to do it but could try.



No teens Actors will be harmed in the playing of twilight multiball.

Tip for pop bumper placement

How to get a good idea on where you want a pop bumper to go

Parts...



Put skirt upside down. You want to have the skirt on because that is the trigger mech and pretty much determines your placement



Put on pop bumper cover



Trying out placement of pop bumpers

Problem Solved!

I've been having tooling troubles because i realized that my beloved festool 1010 router isn't good for universal template bushings which I found is a problem with festool routers from the festool owners group forum. I have to redo all my templates because the bit wasnt center when I made them which caused problems when I held my router in certain directions.

The solution is this dewalt 611 router which is supposed to be one of the best things ever. It's a palm sized plunge router which has some features missing from my festool router. Every review I read on it is great, and the plunge lock mech is awesome. Going to be making new templates tonight and tomorrow.

How to route out a recess for an under playfield magnet(ie Adams family, shadow)




Part 1

The magnet is 2.5" with a little cord sticking out so I used a 3"hole saw to use as a pattern. With a bushing and bit, there bill a little more than 2.5"



Part 2

Place the template where you want recess to go, install bit a bushing.



Part 2

Route out recess depth of magnet and bracket



Complete

Insert Ideas for a Future Game

Having fun with inserts

Messing around with his idea has given me an idea. Would be cool to make insert artwork and bring to APE 2014 to see if anyone would want one for there game room or desk. Put some lites behind them so they light up.

Looks like some nice progress, I like the idea of inserts in the shape of a larger object.
