Aerosmith Tournament Setup(other games too)


#1

Question for all the TD’s out there regarding the setup of Aerosmith for tournament play. Would you enable virtual ball locks? I guess this could also apply to other games that also have this feature.


#2

definitely, unfair kick in or on top of the Joker guys make a big difference. It could also increase the change of loosing track of balls since there is no switches inside its box.


#3

WOZ always gets virtual locks because the lock mech sometimes releases more balls than it’s supposed to.


#4

What other games would you suggest turning on virtual locks?


#5

X-Men


#6

Batman '66, Game of Thrones


#7

GotG

I wouldn’t turn on a virtual ball lock on Aerosmith unless the specific game was experiencing some difficulties.


#9

Interesting we now have differing opinions. I was hoping there would be a clear cut answer. Lol.


#10

Blocking up the Toy Box with locked balls can be a strategy.


#11

Watching the IFPA Nationals and they have virtual locks turned on.


#12

I think physical locks for solo qualifying and virtual locks for multiplayer is the best way to go.


#13

I also find it odd that they didn’t turn off EB’s on Aerosmith.


#14

Possible they felt that the points value you get when turned off was overpowering given the lowered expected scoring with the way the game is set up.


#15

I don’t believe they are on … But I’m also far too lazy to check right now (the game is 8 feet away from me).


#16

They may not be awarding an actual extra ball, not sure. But when I turn off EB’s on my Aerosmith it never displays “extra ball lit” like it was doing today.


#17

They’re set to points. 15M.


#18

Hmm. For some reason I couldn’t find that setting. I’ll have to double check as that is what I would like it to do.

EDIT - Went through the settings again and even checked the manual, I didn’t see anything about virtual locks. Do you just disable the Toybox motor?

Also, I can’t find any setting that awards points for EB’s.

Lastly, I thought I noticed in the IFPA stream for Aerosmith, anytime they started multiball, they had ZERO ball save time. When checking my settings the lowest setting I can turn that down to is 5 seconds. Any help is appreciated.

Yes, disable the toy box.

Installing Competition should set EB to points.

There’s a short ball save on Toys MB at the Pin Masters setup. Very short.


#20

Disabling the toy box enabled “virtual locks”.

I installed Comp Mode but it still awarded an EB versus giving points.
