    You know that's it.

    the key to doing a death save is the timing. you have to nudge just before the ball strikes the left channel, so your nudge physically moves that part of the table into the ball. it also helps to...

    Well, something robbed me of that 300 million many times.

    And as i said, BSD is known to lose track of the number of balls on the playfield. and this is not something that FS could have fixed.

    I've done that, and only gotten 150 million instead of 300 million.

    Pretty sure you only got the 300 million BECAUSE you drained the fourth ball, and the game decided the two to light the jackpot...

    They have to respect the rules of the console makers themselves.

    If Sony or MS is willing to allow the game uncensored, they will do it. it's that simple.
