Tips & Tricks

  • This playfield looks especially good in F2 view with fixed camera turned on.
  • Learn how to use the left flipper to get up to the T-I-M-E top lanes. Completing the T-I-M-E lights is essential for your progress!
  • When the Chess Clock endgame lights come on and you have Piece Targets enabled, try not to hit them before starting the endgame - to save yourself from having to enable them again before going for mate.
  • If you have the endgame lights flashing and are also very close to completing T-I-M-E a second time (to light the Adjourn light), note that it's easier to complete T-I-M-E before the endgame is started.

Known Bugs and To-Do Thingies

  • None.
