  1. Only a couple of sessions on this one but a decent innings just behind you Girth. I am moving house next week so no idea when I’ll be back online for this.
  2. Currently my best effort, I did manage to almost complete a full grid of missions yesterday playing more cautiously, but I still only ended up with about 60m points, maybe whatever mode you get when you complete the set is worth a chunk of points but I’m still trying to figure out where the points are.
  3. @Omizzay yeah I can't get near that, where are the points in this game? I've just about figured out how to end a mission and move onto the next to make rows but I seem to slog it out for ages and end up with 30m
  4. ooh that's tough, I like the clunky old feel of the TNG but the STLE is bonkers and all the audio stuff on it is great.
  5. Ah man, that's tough dude, we shall continue in your honour.
  6. Someone must still be playing.... @Omizzay ? My score is over 200mil now.
  7. Addams Family! Bally 1992 v2.3.1 Here’s something to get us started.
  8. Hello! I am still alive, long story but we sold our house and are currently living in a motorhome in Cornwall so not much pinball time of late Good news is we had an offer accepted on a house with a decent sized building / workshop in the yard that I reckon would be perfect for a pinball restoration project (and my home office for virtual action of course).
  9. Shall we do Addams Family for next week's table? Metallica has become a touch frustrating at this point as you lose a lot of balls with it and the objectives seem to be repeated hits on the same targets for multiballs, unless I'm missing where the ramps come in, they are the more enjoyable shots but don't really seem to get you much.
  10. Yeah both this week's tables (Spiderman and Metallica) have Magnets, in Metallica it's in front of the electric chair and I guess the real one triggers on and off quickly to jiggle the ball about like it's being electrified, similar to Tales of the Arabian Nights. In Spiderman there's a super annoying one that just stalls the ball before you go to shoot it from the top flipper to throw you off. Plus one that holds your ball and if you can hit it off the magnet it starts multiball. There's an amazing on on Dracula that makes a ball appear to magically float across the table.
  11. Started playing Metallica, its funny how many of these kinds of themes there are, I’ve never been into AC/DC, Metallica(definitely not Rush!) et al but I cant deny the tables themselves are a lot of fun and weirdly the branding seems to lead to cool little objectives. Actually, having said all that I’m not into superheroes either haha! Spiderman is a really great table. Both of these feel like evolutions of Mars Attacks which is never a bad thing!
  12. Is that your boy casually rolling a 100m Super Jackpot on Fish Tales?
  13. Ah that place looks great, pretty strong lineup! Pretty solid run on Spiderman earlier.
  14. Ooh a stick thread, I can shamelessly post a pic of the joystick I recently built as I wanted a super wide one for pinball to sit it behind a cintiq screen but also have the option for arcade gaming. As a side note I replaced the buttons with the silent sanwa ones and it made a massive difference to the noise of using the thing.
  15. One thing with this table, nornally you shoot whatever is flashing at you but on this everything is flashing!
  16. Best so far, I havent read any guides yet, just shooting for multiball but have no idea what I’m doing, got into battle royale just now, bedt so far
  17. Ah nice! Yeah I’ll be on some Spiderman action, this’ll probably need to run for a couple of weeks as i have a lot of chaos approaching.
  18. Okay cool yeah so I’m on the right path with it. Yeah that right ramp takes no prisoners. The setup I have is 4K, its one of those things that when you load up a table it looks that extra bit solid and crisp, especially with the art these tables have, but when you’re actually playing you don’t notice it at all. My setup is unusual being a vertical screen but its closer to my face than a tv would be.
  19. Nice! I can’t really find any specific ways to get bigger points, seems like you just have to keep stacking completed modes and multiballs? On a good run I can maybe get two multiballs with an extra ball and get a few modes along with that but the gains are incremental.
  20. Sorry to hear that dude! Hope you feel better soon, waiting for that breakthrough game on TOTC, stuck at 200m and one thing in particular I cannot manage is getting multiball on the first ball, maybe I just need to let it go and focus on modes.
  21. One thing I will say about it, it's quite a consistent table in terms of scoring, there are so many where you don't know if you'll get 1mill, or 500mill, but this seems fairly regular. I've found that backhanding the ball off the right flipper to either try and hit the spinner / extra ball lock, or the three bank of targets will often get the ball onto the upper flipper so you can then hit the crypt or the scoop to start a mode which is super helpful.
  22. Pinball’s worst kept secret but looks like a lot of fun.
