All I have is a Xenon Al. Owned a centaur, medusa and vector, all great machines I wish I had room to keep. I did find Centaur a tiring machine to play, all that multiball, I never wanted to push start again after a long game. Which makes me wary of GNR .

With Centaur, you can adjust the dip switch settings to make multiballs harder to achieve.

Great game, another i find difficult, in fact i am so bad i don't get multiball very often :oops: the drop targets can be problematic if they are not set correctly the ball can really whack them and they stay up, any advise on this would be greatly appreciated.

In these early Bally SS games (unless already done) you ought to remove the complete drop target mechs, strip down and thoroughly clean them.

Take loads of photos.

They are massively overengineered, but have relatively weak springs due to age and metal fatigue. They can have plenty of accumulated 30 year old gunk/ rust that messus up operation.

ive found if the wrong size rubber is fitted behind the drop targets,it can stop them from dropping as well
