Shipping + Delivery
Does my Skillshot FX come assembled?
Mostly. The most complicated portion, which contains all the fun, is preassembled. The base platform is assembled by you. Tools required include a screwdriver with phillips head bit. The main cabinet then needs to be lifted onto the base platform (requires 2 people) and finally the backglass can be lifted into place and secured with supplied hardware. Check out the full Skillshot Fx Product Manual here. Or school up on our How to Videos.
Why is this cool keyboard included with my Skillshot FX?
Although the majority of your interaction with the Skillshot FX can be managed by using the menu navigation panel, there are a few setup items (like connecting to your home WiFi and creating your Steam account) that are just easier with a keyboard. The keyboard also has a built-in touchpad that works just like a touchpad on a laptop for easy point and click navigation.
If something looks off or appears damaged when delivered, what should I do?
Take pictures before and as you are unboxing your new Skillshot FX. If you sign for it make sure that you note there was damage or if it’s really bad, refuse delivery. We’ve got you covered and will always make things right.
Set Up + Play
How long will it take to set up, ready to play?
40 minutes to assemble the cabinet. 20 minutes to create Steam account and enter wallet codes to unlock your full content experience.
Do I need to have an internet connection?
YES! An internet connection is required for initial setup and Steam account creation. After that, you can play offline, but online leaderboard, tournaments, and software updates will require an ongoing internet connection.
What is a Steam account? And how do I get one?
Steam is a digital distribution platform developed by Valve Corporation in 2003 for the express purpose of distributing game software, hosting multiplayer functionality, and social networking. It is similar to other digital content services such as iTunes or Google Play and is currently the world’s largest digital retailer for personal computer based video games. To utilize Steam, you must have a Steam account and the Steam game client, both of which are free.
Is it easy to move?
You can slide the game cabinet around on the smooth base platform base, but remember it is 270 lbs.
Can I adjust the volume? Or change the lighting?
Yes. Volume is easily adjusted using the dedicated volume buttons on the navigation panel. Multiple ambient lighting modes (including dark mode) and a “quiet” mode that disables the haptic feedback are selectable using the mode button on the front of the cabinet.
Where can I find tips, tricks, and table guides?
Community driven tips and discussion can be found here. Table guides can be found right in the software on the game. Easily pause the game using the navigation panel and select “Table guide” for detailed, animated descriptions of special features for each table.
How do I reset high scores?
You can’t reset online high scores, but if you want to clear out your local high scores you will need the supplied mini-keyboard. Pause the game using the back button on the navigation panel and select leaderboards. Then use the keyboard touchpanel or Ctrl keys to cycle through the leaderboards until you see “Local Highscores”. Press the “space” bar to reset these scores to default.
How can I clean my Skillshot FX?
Plastic Parts & Display Panel: Use a mild, foaming glass cleaner and soft microfiber towel to gently wipe down these areas. Acrylic plastic sheets have 17x the impact strength of glass, meaning, it takes a lot more force to shatter acrylic than glass. That being said, care should be taken when cleaning to prevent scratching the clear covering that protects the Skillshot FX playfield display. Do not set drinking glasses, mugs, tumblers, or any other hard objects on the unit that could scratch the surface.
Wood Surfaces: Use any good furniture polish and a soft microfiber towel to gently wipe down these surfaces. Try on an inconspicuous area first, if the polish does not react with the painted or wood surfaces, use on the rest of the wood surfaces.
