    I seem to be stuck around 130-140mil, keep waiting on that breakthrough round where I get 2-300million but I seem to massively choke when trying to collect jackpots or just have a knack for losing all three Multiballs in about 10seconds on this table.

    Same...super frustrating.  Think I'm done with this one for a while.

  3. Medieval Madness, Attack from Mars, Twilight Zone, Addams Family, Congo, Indiana Jones, Star Trek, Tales of the Arabian Nights, Monster Bash, Simpsons Pinball Party, Theatre of Magic, Metallica, Scared Stiff, Whitewater, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Cirqus Voltaire, Guns N Roses, No Good Gofers, Black Rose, Frankenstein, Terminator 2, Judge Dredd, World Cup Soccer, Tales from the Crypt.................

     

    I could go on and on and on.  There are so many unbelievably amazing pinball tables and hopefully these weekly VPX challenges keep going and we get to them all eventually.

     

    I am really enjoying focusing on one table per week as well as it really lets you dive deep into the ruleset and the different strategies to become a better player and try to score those big points.  Fish Tales has now simultaneously become one of my favourite but at the time my most hated tables in pinball.  Never really dove deep into it before.

     

    Next week's tables of choice theme will be....Superheroes :)

  4. There's two ways to get big points on Fish Tales:

     

    1. Keep shooting the middle Boat ramps 6 times to light the 6 little fish underneath it and then shoot the left spinner shot for Monster Fish Jackpot (which goes from 20M to 30M to 40M etc).

     

    2. Once in multiball, shoot the right ball lock, then hit the left spinner for jackpot 3 times.  Once you've done this, you can then hit the captive ball in the middle for massive points (100M then 200M etc).  

     

    The second strategy is the obvious choice for getting monster scores, but it's extremely difficult to pull off.  Almost managed it once but I ended up draining trying to go for the captive ball. Tournament players usually just go for the first strategy over and over.

     

    Fun, yet frustrating table.

  5. Best I could muster up for now.  I'm positive I can crack 1B on this one though.

    They're all phenomenal tables, but personally I like World Cup Soccer, NBA Fastbreak and No Fear the most...and Fish Tales is an absolute classic.  Try them all out and let me know your thoughts so we can lock it in.

    Got consistent scoring over 150m but just couldn't push on over 200m 

     

    Will get everything updated tomorrow. But shall we go with Pirates? 

     

    @Omizzaycan you share the VPX download link please?

    Happy with Pirates.  Link was already mentioned above but here it is again:

    HS2 on Pinball FX3 on XBox.

     

    No super jackpots. Most of it came from supercharger where you get incremental 5M for each ramp shoot. If you can shoot the ramp and then hold the left flipper up as it returns you can sometimes 'ski pass' it back to the right flipper and repeat.

     

    Happy with that.

    @Wizcat you really should download VPX.  The difference in physics with the Zen engine is night and day and a lot more realistic.

    If I was going to splash out on a PC for virtual pinballing what sort of spec should I be looking at?

    This is the recommended:

    Processor: AMD Ryzen R5 1400 (4x 3.2/3.4 GHz) 8MB Socket AM4 CPU BOX

    Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) Ballistix Sport LT DDR4-2400 CL16 (16-16-16) RAM Kit

    Graphics card: MSI GeForce GTX 1050Ti 4GT LP 4GB GDDR5 DVI/HDMI/DP Low Profile graphics card

     

    I upgraded to a Ryzen 7, 16GB RAM and GeForce 2060 in order to future-proof.

  10. I've had a PS5 since launch, two Nintendo Switches and a Virtual Pinball cabinet with hundreds of tables...and definitely not enough time to play them all.

     

    But I went ahead and took the plunge on an XBox Series S today....mainly for GamePass.  The service is amazing and I'm currently in the process of downloading around 80 games!

     

    Pumped to get into Forza Horizon 5 first and foremost.
