Loops / Orbits / Ramps

Related Config File Sections:

Ramps, loops or orbits usually contain two switches. One at the entry and one to signal success. To detect only shots where both switches were hit in order you can use sequence_shots.

TODO: Add a picture of an orbit

    number: 1
    number: 2
    switch_sequence: s_ramp_entry, s_ramp_success
    sequence_timeout: 3s

Additionally, most machines usually play a sound once the entry is hit to signal the player that he hit the ramp and another sound on success to indicate that the ball made it. You can use sound_player: to achieve that. In this example you would use the events s_ramp_entry_active and ramp_hit to play the sounds:

  s_ramp_entry_active: indicate_ramp
  s_ramp_success: indicate_ramp_success
