Description
Here is Bally's original Freedom. It's the model that made it past white-board and into pre-production stage. The one that Bally took pictures of and printed on their flyers. The one they took to the distributors to get a gauge for the production run... But at the last minute, they scrapped the entire lower playfield and went with a classic flipper set-up. Freedom was released in both SS and EM versions. The EM version had a run of approximately 5000 (As a comparison, only 1500 SS versions were produced).
Info
Change log (from the RC's to final)

Re-built lower play-field. (arcade)
Put the “null” bonus count-down in... if FP = tilted... like Greywolf’s version.
Sped up cam timers... to try and match Greywolf’s version better.
Got rid of the extra-ball disqualification on tilt. They are still tilt happy if you double nudge...
Changed flipper and bumper sounds... added sling sounds. (arcade)
Hardened some of the rubber hardness values.
Fixed a couple of rubbers to look more ‘snug’ around the posts.
Fixed halos showing through the left wood wall.
Fixed some ordering problems.

* For those using an advanced set-up you may still want to bump the power/strength down one notch on the lower pop-bumper... your mileage may vary. (pre-production)

    @JonPurpleHaze, Fleet Foxes are an American indie folk band formed in Seattle, Washington in 2006. The band is known for their lush harmonies, intricate arrangements, and poetic lyrics. Their music draws on a wide range of influences, including folk, rock, and baroque pop.
