TheGyruss.zip updated again, forgot to add a sound for extra ball, now in. I think I've got it nailed down tight this time.

Ok, I tried it out. The MB shot is too hard, IMO. I played 3 games and never hit it once. There's one other major shot and that's the orbit loop thing. It flows well left to right, but the right to left hits a stopper or something and makes me think there should be something there other than a bounce for stopping it instead of connecting the orbit. The rest seems to be mostly oodles and oodles of drop targets (not my favorite thing to shoot at).

The table looks fairly good. I like the score boxes, match feature and the gyruss music along with the animated pop bumpers. I think I'd just like some more things to shoot at than drop targets. I mean Gyruss was a unique video game. You went in a circle. So why do I feel like there should be a central spiral ramp (like in Pinbot or Earthshaker or Congo) used in the game somehow. Or even a couple of spiral ramps? I'm thinking some action like shoot drop targets to gain bullet and then shoot spiral ramp to wip out squadron so the gameplay feels like you're actually taking out bad guys. Some speech or something to indicate you're hitting them would be cool. But those are just some raw ideas off the top of my head.

The MB shot aint that hard, it just may take more then 3 games, I have hit it 3 times in 1 ball on occassion. The oribit shot is designed that way for the reason that the WARP lanes need to be advanced to score big points with the bonus multiplier.

I like targets, they give you something to vary your aim at, that last target makes the player think about the shot.

Didn't want to include speech as there was none in the original arcade game, the table uses only sounds ripped from the arcade rom using M1 and mechanical pinball sounds.

Thanks for the comments, so perhaps I'll try some ramps next time and a few less targets.

Hello anybody out there?

Anyhows, I've been through the script with a fine toothed comb and found a few errors and also adjusted the bumpers slightly. The new bumper setting stop a rather annoying drain rebound from the 2x bumper onto the THEGYRUSS, then SDTM.

This update can be done by just deleting the old script and replacing it with the attached text file.

The updated table also available attached in this thread.

Btw please do comment, say whatever you feel about the table and I will consider all suggestions.
