Diner is rumoured to give Start multiball on Todays special, if the player has a ball locked. But that is not true (though often). It will, however, start multiball for you, when plunging the ball to the upper eject. Just as a shot made by the player via the spinner. But, the Diner used at INDISC had a mechanical condition where it unfortunetly did not make it all the way, from the hole plunger, to the upper eject hole, every time.
My experience based on Diner broadcast which was two balls from a quarterfinal. And the finals game.
The mod was developed starting October in collaboration with Belsito. And my plan was to make a decision on release or not, or further developement, based on INDISC experience. The content of the mod was posted by Belsito in post 3 of this thread, some time before INDISC. This is the full content of the mod.
Stuff like deterministic Todays special and more linear progression Stir-the-cup are under consideration. Please chime in. The inspiration is, as it often is, the luck/skill balance for higher level competition play.
I was very sad to see the trouble the game had in the final round. For players and organisers. The jukebox plunge awards is first switch. Not necessary the upper hole. So, I guess a phantom switch was what you had there, Colin.
Honestly, I highly doubt that the mod had anything to do with the misbehaves. It is pinball-gizmos, as they unfortunetly appear once in a while. Great timing, right. Deep investigation to be come.
Great work, INDISC crew. Great play, players.
