I modified my previous post, I was incorrect I was not getting a GREED letter within the swamp, but with each new ball no matter where it lands.

So is it normal to get a new GREED letter with each new ball?

Mine does, is it supposed to?

On mine every time you start a new ball it gives you a letter in Greed. That is probably what is confusing you? I also replied to your RGP post :)

No problem, I thought mine was messed up too actually. But then when I read through the rules with a fine tooth comb..I found the part about getting a letter for free..for each new ball!


**edit** You can actually turn that feature off in the settings menu if you want.

Cheers!!

Whew. I was about to be pissed that the TAF I always played was malfunctioning- I've never played one with the free GREED leter on... That op makes us WORK to get into the vault  ;D

On your first multiball, the first switch you trigger each ball spots a letter. You can also gain a "cheat" GREED letter by tilting. When G-R-E-E-D is spelled, the bookcase opens and the vault is revealed.

I saw that but I got from it that this happens after you get a multiball..... but upon game start each new ball is giving a greed letter before any multiball has been triggered. Is this the same with your TAF?

btw...rephrased my question rgp to make it more clear, some people have chimed in:

No it means before you get your FIRST multiball you get a free letter on each new ball. Once you get past the first multiball it doesnt happen anymore. TRUST me. Thats the way it works..PERIOD..

You can make TAF as easy as hard as you want really. So I don't see it as an issue. Pretty much every setting can be increased or decreased.

No it means before you get your FIRST multiball you get <a onMouseOver="javascript:window.status='a free';return true;" onMouseOut="javascript:window.status='';return true;" href="http://canadasrv.info?v=1%2E2&ss=a+free">a free</a> letter on each new ball. Once you get past the first multiball it doesnt happen anymore. TRUST me. Thats the way it works..PERIOD..



Thanks Tom, I hate being paranoid about a game that was just fixed up, didn;t know if I goofed on a repair or what! Glad its working as it should...once again I feel much better  ;D

Appreciate the feedback, tested and confirmed, after your first multi-ball you stop getting GRED letters on a new ball.

Thanks Again!
