This is how i do most.
VP9 needs a caching checked.Not all bit most work with this quick way.
This goes back many years of success.
Remove the tables vpcache,then load table
Be patient it works with most DMD tables.Like sound useing 8 and 9 for it.
(Print this out)
==================================
Press the End key to open coin door.

Press the top 0 (zero) key twice to enter menu.

Press the top 9 key (not numpad keys) until you see
STANDARD ADJ

Press the 0 key to select STANDARD ADJ

Press the 0 key to highlight the number for BALLS PER GAME.
The number will blink when highlighted.

Press the 9 key to increase the number of balls, or the 8 key to decrease the number of balls. Then press the 0 key and wait for confirmation.

Then press the 7 key repeatedly until you are back in PLAY MODE. Press the End key to close the Coin Door.

I recommend printing this out.
Thanks for all the non dmd's though.

Stan-

First of all, glad to see you back on here! You were missed!

Anyway, there is a seperate thread to adjust the DMD tables. I kept them seperate so that people would not be searching through a long list just to find what they are looking for. Look in my sig for the link for the DMD table thread.

Appreciate the info however.

Which table are you looking to adjust? Each link will bring you to the appropriate tutorial, with a list of tables that apply to that procedure.

This is true. However, System 6 and 7 tables can be set to a different number of balls than just 3 or 5 (and I believe the System 8 table Pennant Fever as well can be adjusted as such). In my testing of these tables, I have played 7 ball games, 2 ball games, 99 ball games, etc. I haven't tried this on my real life Flash machine yet. It is just a quirk in those systems I believe, and it is not documented anywhere that I know of.
