As you know I am currently the Administrator tasked with the processing of title requests for the Sega SG-1000, Sega Mark III, Sega Master System, and the Sega Game Gear. Who do I talk to to administer for additional platforms such as Pinball and video pinball games for PC? There is a large backlog of requests that need to be processed.  I would also be willing to help out on any of the 30+ systems that I own and collect for.

Thanks for any info.

@Mark:

The Switch has been requested and I'm sure will be added as a platform.  There are a number of platforms on the list and I think they are waiting for the current site-upgrade project to be completed.

So these Data East games -- it's a problem?  Are they emulated on the Switch?  Or do they come in a collection which we usually consider to belong under the system they were released for?

S.BAZ,

There is currently a score for the Data East Arcade game Sly Spy being voted on in the MAME/Emulation category. The problem is that it was played on the Nintendo Switch. I then did a search for Sly Spy and it's not in the database here for the Switch. In fact I couldn't even find the Switch as a selectable option when submitting a title request. Is there really not a Switch category here? This could a problem, especially with all of the Capcom, Data East, Sega, and SNK Neo Geo games released for the Switch. And more are coming.

Zaccaria Pinball has just released 5 more tables, at least for the PC version on Steam. I have submitted requests for them. They added 1 EM from 1974, a Remake table, 2 Retro tables, and an Award table. I have submitted requests for them.

The EM is Tropical.

I have submitted Zombie Pinball for the PC (each table). This game is the same as the Android version and has the same tables. It is available on Steam, in fact I own it there.

Thanks.

Ok, sounds fine since default is 5 balls anyway... we can just make a [3 Balls] chart for each game.

Yesterday I bought Epic Pinball: The Complete Collection on GOG. Whille all of the tables are present here there are no 3 Ball and 5 Ball options. The game launches with 5 Balls as the default, but 3 Balls can be selected as an option. I don't know what you want to do about it, as there are not seperate High Score boards for each of the two options. Each board includes its own High Score screen.

Here is a video which covers the tables

Yes, those Remake menus helped a lot.  I can see which games have what kind of version available in that menu now  yes

thanks for answering all my questions!

Well, the playfield differences between the similarly named tables is one way, as mentioned. I usually try to upload a screenshot of the table I'm submitting a score for with the name super-imposed onscreen in the top portion of the frame.  I am not creating these supers by-the-way, it's something that the Zaccaria software does automatically, when it's working that is. Even when it isn't I still grab a screenshot of the table, with as much of the playfield and backbox (The vertical "head" of the pinball machine, where the score is displayed) as is possible.

You might also ask for verification of my table requests and score submissions from other players here who play Zaccaria on Steam. Mantalow and Johnny1981 I know do

I own the most complete package available. The Platinum Edition. And I buy every table as soon as I discover it's available (usually this happens when one of my friends on Steam buys a DLC table or table pack). This always shows up in my Steam Account Activity feed.

Let's say a new Remake table is released. I first request that it be added here. Then the next time I post a score for any of the Remake tables I will (usually) add a screenshot showing of the Remake menu, which has an icon displayed for every Remake table, in order of release. "NEW" will be displayed with the icon, but I don't know for how long. I imagine until the next Remake table is released, although I have seen them do it for the previous two tables at times.

I hope that I haven't confused you. I have ADHD and tend to ramble. smiley

@Mark:

ok yes

I have another question - when I'm voting, do you know how I can determine which version it is by looking at the pictures?  I don't see anywhere that they say 2017 or 2018 or bonus or if it is the original one, and the background seems to look the same either way??  Larquey informed me that the playfields are different, but I would have to go to another site to find out what it would look like.  So is there any way I can tell just by looking at the picture?

I went to submit a score for a table and discovered that with all of the requests that I made for Zaccaria Pinball that I forgot a table. I have just submitted a request for it with both 3 Balls and with 5 Balls. It is for ...

Zaccaria Pinball: Soccer Kings 2018 Retro Table

I added a screenshot to my score submissions for (the already added table) Zaccaria Pinball: Star God 2018 Retro Table. The screenshot shows all of the tables in the Retro section. Soccer Kings 2018 Retro is shown next to last, to the left of the Star God 2018 Retro table.

Thanks.

Oh, I figured that out a while back just by looking at the #, 8388607. Serious has that field in the database set to 3 byte interger type or MediumInt which maxes out @ 8388607. He needs to tweak the type on that field to a BIGINT which will allow up to 9223372036854775807 as the max stored integer. Another 100 years of HS and I think you can reach that point total laugh

@ILLSeaBass:

yeah it's a bug in the site I guess!  Only affects my score for some reason.  My points stopped updating for the top users list some time ago, maybe up to 2 yrs. ago.  But this one on my profile is correct.  It keeps auto updating still. 

Maybe Larquey will abscond with my High Score crown!

or, maybe if he surpasses my false total, it will squash the bug... ??
