still the same people voting "I don't trust submitter for past actions" then before. Voting no on all my scores. Really depressing
thanks, some people like to vote no on all my scores though. It seems I have a bad reputation or something.
Can't understand why
They will not play the same because PFX2/3 has a way too bouncy physics (which I don't like), the ball feels like it's made of rubber and not of steel.
I don't think I'll buy the Bally Pack, not in its current form, I'll rethink this if they start to release more tables, like a Bally/midway museum with all tables from the 60's until the more recent ones
I think we will know by the end of the year how Zen and Farsight are doing. I hope Zen will be smart enough not to do the same mistakes as Farsight did by releasing tables without proper testing, or releasing new stuff that completely broke older tables...
Still, I prefer TPA game, it feels superior graphically, PFX2/3 has a cartoon approach that is a little disturbing for me. If TPA was to die, I think I'll be very sad because that is my favorite pinball sim despite all the bugs.
because TPA devs are stupid ? I don't know. SPA is running in DX11 only, which can affect performances on older PCs. Plus, SPA is like it was designed for mobile screens, On my PC, everything is almost unreadable, and it is hard to focus on action in SPA as the playzone is just a small column in the center of my screen.
If you want my words, TPA is dying, devs don't know what to do, they lose the bally/midway licenses, Zen Studios now have them, and if they're smart enough, they will release everything TPA has already done, plus some more tables everyone wants so badly (indiana jones, simpsons, batman...)
TPA and Stern PA use the same engine, technically, it is the same game
voting yes on all your submissions
well, I made a mistake, the original locomotion table have electronic score display: you can see it here: http://www.highscore.com/scores/PC/ZaccariaPinball/71999
The green LCD display prove also that this is the remake, the original table had old electromechanical score display
You can zoom on the picture and see the playfield that prove that this is the remake.
And yes, you can play the original Zaccaria's locomotion table in this game (if it was the question), mark and me have uploaded some scores on it
Screens are from Black Hole, not Big Shot friend.
Skipping for now
"played by Lemmy556"
nice try dude but this is a no vote for you
well, we need some other competitor. No way I'm beating this score someday soon
to resume: extremely frustating
it requires nerves, the game can be very unfair on some table (ball draining right after launch), the physics are kinda akward too (the ball seems have way too much rolling effect).
I particulary hate the drains not being at the left/right extremities too, it is a bit confusing and you can't control the ball on 2 or 3 tables making the thing ridiculously difficult on tables already extremely difficult.
the tables seems all design so that the games are no longer than 2/3 minutes each for a "normal" player, which is, for me, an absolute horror in term of enjoyement. I certainly wouldn't have spent money in these machines
well, for me it's sunday morning here and a hard one, still recovering from yesterday BBQ :)
I like this one
many Zaccaria tables are unfair with the ball going in the drain almost immediately after launch. I really don't understand why they are designed this way
not a really good score. I drunk too much yesterday (had a BBQ with my gf parents) and game is pretty difficult this morning
I see you already beat me ! Good job
Arg. Thanks for noticing this
the sound effect on this table are a bit annoying. Special mention for the "hit the red special target" spam
No need for an url, the screenshots are stored on your computer too.
Simply go to the screenshots section on your steam library for zaccaria pinball and click on display library and then on the new windows click on view folder or open folder/directory (my Steam is in french, so...), then copy the local url for the game (which should be something like Steam\userdata\36811549\760\remote\444930\screenshots, then go on highscores.com, select upload photo, copy the local url in the browser adress bar and select your screenshot.
Hope it will help you and that is a better explanated than on Steam !
All my points were done on the last ball when I finally understood how to score on this table, + an extra ball during the bonus time help me grinding some more points :)
voting yes. This is way beyond what I am able to score
voting yes on all your scores
so close and so far....
Losed my last ball while trying to get that extra ball..... I should have played normally and hit that bonus targets instead :(
well, I didn't know that ^^
Now I think I'll be less stressed about my energy bar in the first level. I was wondering why I had so much money too
and suddenly I feel like I'm stupid. I didn't know the medikit give you one more unit of energy !
aaaaaaand this is the new score to beat.
It will take me forever XD
well I messed up this bonus stage, because my computer was struggling a lot and emulation was crappy. But I'll try again soon
Thanks. Will play again :)
I made it to the level 2, now I understand why you said finding the 6 parts of the map was important for scoring ^^
Finally understood how to beat level 1. This was simple but if you don't know what to do you can run in circles a long long time...
I just hate tables with magnets and/or spinners. This make the whole game based on luck and not skills
only one screenshot because this score is real shit
This table get me mad, I almost punch my monitor in the face. hours on it and can't understand why the ball go in the outlanes ALWAYS. I never play this one again. I'm done
this game is a classic, and it even have a sequel, which is better
not so low, this table is very technic
I'm not sure about that. That game is really hard
what is this story of copyright ?
hmm didn't saw the rope. I'm too busy trying to escape those fishes... Will retry soon.
This game is hard as hell
stuck at the end of 2nd island level.
Don't know what to do ¯\_(?)_/¯
just saw your score in voting and suddenly had a struggle to play and submit Amiga scores ^^
I'm relearning the levels again 25 years later. I was able to reach level 2 before, I will do some runs soon, hoping someone will beat my score and have a mini competition here
Still need a lot of training to beat that score of yours Franckie
I remember these times when you can burn the entire MAME ROMS into a single CD
Sorry I yploaded this score under the wrong game before. I wasn't aware there was several versions of this game on the NES.
nevermind, I find it. Thanks for the help. I wasn't aware there was several version of this game on the NES. My cartridge only has 3 stages
hm but there isn't any other donkey kong game under NES category ?
where should I submit this score then ?
So now, I get no votes for "I did not follow Highscore Rules".
This has to be a joke
nice score. Voting yes
thanks. Still trying to improve myself on this game. One of my favorite NES game
I'm a bit surprised no one uploaded a score before me on this game
an easy score to beat
Well, not quite first run. I played this game a lot when I was a kid, but this was 30 years ago
first try on this game. I'll retry in Ace difficulty tomorrow as all the scores registered are under this difficulty
never been able to beat the level 4
confused by the weapon system. So different of the arcade version
this is a really bad score. I didn't remember the NES was sprite flickering so much
very bad run just for fun and trying to remember those tracks.
AI is obviously cheating
just download a NES to play my old titles. I didn't play them since 25 years so don't expect high scores
Uploading just for fun
voting yes. Nice score
Score @ 7'07
thanks. There is still place for improvement :)
Reuploaded with correct score
yes, released two months ago
unfortuntely, I'm still bad with oldest pinball tables
there are only 4 levels if I remember well, so you're very close to complete the game.
I think I'll upload a score under emulation this week but I think I won't be able to compete your score before some serious training
I don't remember well this game apart that it is hard as hell and need you to learn every trap.
I think I'll do some run on emulation. My CRT monitor don't like photos as well (some grey bars appear and make the thing mostly unreadable) I need some LCD monitor with scart plug to play my Amiga in decent condition (my eyes are currently bleeding if I play more than 30 minutes with my CRT)
nice score. I wish I can compete on my A500 but I can't record videos because of the flickering
it's a yes vote for me
the music in this game is just so good
en troll, j'ai un vote négatif "I don't trust the submitter due to past actions, reputation, or their legit rating." sur chaque score. Et "vidéo désirée" mais je juge celui-là normal normal vu que je n'ai mis que des screenshots
Funny he's coming back each time I come back too
I didn't play so much pinball when I was younger, mainly because there wasn't many arcades in France. but I spent a lot of time on Batman from Data East
this seems like a really big score for this game.
Voting yes anyway
this game is so much fun ! I remember loading the game just to listen to the music !
played on Steam ? If yes, you can add me to your friends list.
Low score, but I have some too on many tables I don't like ^^
sorry for the typo. My keyboard was locked in qwerty and I didn't notice :(
I4; so bqd qt this tqble .5
aaaaaaaand, accepted :)
I don't know about ZEN account connection. These scores are those from my Steam friends (so there are online)
oh, and Pinball FX3 too. I should add my scores btw. But I'm too lazy requesting my 66 tables :/
very nice score.
That's a long time I've not played Addams Family, I'm too busy on Zaccaria Pinball ;)
Hehe thanks. Not really back into business but still posting some scores here and there.
This table is great. I need to train more
Unfortunately, I'm not very good at this one
Correct run starts @ 13'32
Score @ 17'38
well, prove it
I'll do as soon as I can, the website is really slow for me since several months and I have hard times to vote due to errors (service unavailable)
but as usual, TheTrickster score seems unreachable by a conventional human being
I had terrible times setting this score. Each time I try to go for the snackbar, I lost the ball, so after a few hours and still can't get into it 9 times on 10, I decided to play without it, and my score doubled in 2 games
I just posted this one but I can't care less.
If people want to ruin other people experience, let be it this way. I'm still thinking this website need to be redone. I will not post all my others system scores until something is done with the vote system so it is more reliable
still people voting no.
I don't want to post scores with all these trollers on
7 no votes for now. It is really crazy.
last reply, you can see I died in the last area of the game on screenshots 1 & 2, the black hole in the background proves it
I missed a question, it takes me about 20 or 30 minutes to play this game through
so to answer you,
yes, my ship is fully upgraded
yes, this score is way bigger than the previous one, because the previous score was one of my first game (without any upgrades and no idea of ennemies pattern), this game has been done after hundreds of try, so, I'm better at the game
this game has been started from area 1 (no warp) and I managed to go to the last area (zone 13) where I died. The score can appear huge but you get a multiplier added to your score each level you pass, so in the two last level, you gain many many points for each wave entirely destroyed.
And I'm sorry I am not able to upload videos for android games, I have no camera to do that.and I don't think it'll be practical
thanks ! I'll try this
how do you show the stats during gameplay ? :o
Voting yes, of course
How many no votes because "I want to see you recording your camera recording your computer recording a video of you playing the game" on this score ?
well, I bought mine in France, to be sure to have a japanese console which works on 230V. My console is seriously modified and have brand new sound connections + support for 110/230V
I bought mine for 400€ about a year ago
I was thinking about it too. I get 4 or 5 no votes on my PA highscores because I don't record video for it, but I already explained a lot of times that I can't do that on this game as it does random slowdowns, but people actually don't read or don't want to understand.
Mine are still passing through the no votes, but I don't know for how much longer
I red some of the main rules and this pinball is just amazing when you know what you're doing
I beat the game (dragon) 3 times on my new highscore but I know you'll destroy it soon enough
#44 All Time-Best
#227 on World Leaderboard
Only showing online leaderboard because there's a bug preventing player to correctly enters his initials.
Score @ 11'32
Ranking @ 11'51
Score @ 6'00
I'm sorry I messed up the privacy settings of the video. you should be able to play it now
Score @ 9'10
Everyone seems to be playing this game now, so here's my contribution. I am not as good as some people here but I think this is quite a good score. (the mine field in level 3 is a real challenge to me)
Score @ 10'01 (again sound is a little desync, sorry about that)
Score @ 6'35 (sound is a little desync)
well, I though I was good at this game, but that was before TheTrickster came here and beat all my scores x)
Stern Pinball Arcade was realeased with AC/DC and Mustang if you're interested (I'm waiting for Ghostbusters to be out on PC)
there is always one people voting no on all (my) scores. don't know why, but I learned to live with it
very hard table. I think I'll read the rules later on because I don't understand anything at all
oh wow ! Buying a pinball machine ? This will be my dream to have one at home (with a jamma arcade cabinet too)
This table is quite hard to make big score. This score has been done with video mode (26 doctors saved if I remember well) and one multiball (supreme dalek jackpot collected), it's quite hard to make the 4x multiplier stay on the table as it decreases (but I don't know when or why, perhaps it's timer based ?). I'm still learning things on this table, the rules are really complicated and this is one of my favorites all-time pinball
Online leaderboard available here: http://pinballarcade.com/Leaderboards/ Clic on doctor wohj pinball then seek my score
Plus, the Dreamcast is a very powerful console able to handle geat shmup like Mars Matrix and Ikaruga and had great performance on almost every MAME game back in time, so if the game run smooth, why should they bother recode the entire game. They just could port the arcade game directly.
I had the ghost n goblins collection on my PS1 before it dies. This was definitely emulation. I can tell it is because super ghouls and ghosts was so laggy it's impossible they rewrite it for the PS1.
The same goes for gradius collection on PS1 (not capcom but Ifeel the same way) Gradius 3 & 4 was so laggy and unplayable it's impossible they rewrite the games
Capcom has released many CPS1 & CPS2 titles on PS2 and it was emulated arcade games, so maybe this one is the same
I think you won't have any difficulty to beat my scores as I just play two or three games on both. I really don't like old pinballs. The lack of ramps and objectives bored me
I prefer the modern pinballs, the old ones are not forgetting any mistakes
I really, really, really don't like these old pinball machines
there's a second entry for this game specified "continue allowed". The game only give one and it's very easy to say you used it or not
il me semble que ça se dit de toute manière ^^ Merci
low score because I don't like old mechanical pinball machines...
Rules: Play with default settings unless otherwise specified. No saves. No continues. 1 player mode only. No hacked ROMs. No cheat codes or passwords. No crooked cartridge use. Must be played on an authentic NES or Famicom console.
Playchoice 10 is not NES. The games are different. you should request an entry in arcade section, also, continues are not allowed until specified
and Iwas thinking my score was good. Well, not good enough for you
There is no way I can beat TheTrickster score on this table
hehe you noticed.
I was thinking this score was enough to beat your new score. But I noticed when taking screenshot to upload it here that you did better, so I didn't upload it ;)
2 billion and a half improvement
#55 world record
you can check my score here: http://pinballarcade.com/Leaderboards/ (select bone busters and scrolls until you find my score in "all-time" tab
Do you control the transformation ? Because it seems it has a free will when I'm playing
50 milion improvment. just enough to get back in second position
the 3rd screenshot should show my score of 9,999,999 but as it blinks, I miss this one, so do not bother with it.
The original pinball only handle 7 digits, so max score on real hardware should be 9,999,999, but Pinball Arcade allow the score to roll over
according to 5th screenshot, I'm now #118 worldwide.
a little 300 million improvment, still the last for this table though :)
I'm so bad at this table.
20 million improvment over my own previous highscore.
I really should give another round playing all the table, one a day, to try to beat all your scores!
there are always no votes on pinball arcade scores. Someone out there just don't like the game
I don't record video for pinball arcade because it sometimes hung up my computer for some millisecond which can make you lose the ball or fail when occuring at the bad time
if you are not playing with the factory settings, the game won't upload the score to the online leaderboard and you won't see it ingame too (screen 4). Only you will be able to see the score in the local scores
yes ! will vote now
The game only ask you once if you want to continue.
The second screenshot proves that I didn't use it (sorry it is in french because the game use the local settings of my phone)
All your videos are private. I skip for now
I mean #117 errrr
Added in (5) a screenshot of the All-Time World online leaderboard for this table
I'm #107 for now. You can check my score by yourself here : http://pinballarcade.com/Leaderboards/
well, I know nothing on arcade cabinet apart playing on them x)
I would like to build one, one day but I need more room for it (and it was merely a box with a PC & MAME inside), so I know JAMMA is a kind of standard in the arcade world but nothing more. I don't know if I'll be able to build a controller for a cab, because I have zero electronic/electric skill. It seems to me that all of this is way b eyond my skills
you can link the youtube video directly on the page, just remove the &feature and it'll work
Duplicate entry as TheTrickster said. I'll skip on this score.
Please resubmit on the correct game page (the one with scores)
I'm wondering how hard the "pandora box" is to install in a cab ? Electronic skills ?
maybe not bad words, but very agressive
I don't think this is your fault. Trolls were there before you begin to have a problem with them. And you weren't alone to try to argue with trolls, I was very fed up some months ago and have bad words too in the discussions area
I think he's/they're gone because we had a bunch of new players recently, and perhaps that's too time consuming for him/them to vote no on every score, so he/they just give up
Like I said, the last suspicious no vote I get was on october, the 12. since that date, all my scores are 100% legit (for now). And it's been a long time since I got 2 or 3 no votes on the first day I submitted a score.
Let's hope this little crisis is over, and if this come back, yes, we just have to bear it again
I just wanted to give this game a try, it looked fun when I saw your screenshots. I don't know if I'll play all levels as you did
for now, I didn't get anyone on my new scores. I believe the trolls have found another game to play
no problem. Please answer this message when it's done so I remember to vote on this score
I'm voting twice a day, everyday and I ALWAYS leave a message when voting no, so, I have vote for your scores too
nicely done. I've never beaten the level 4
Low score on the new table of the month
picture 1. Local Leaderboard
picture 2. pinball displaying score
picture 3. online leaderboard
I just checked who is in charge of the PC section and there are two admins. you can send a message to Maxwel or TheTrickster and ask him to rename the actual Zaccaria Pinball entries to Arcade and to add Simulation
the requests can be long to process. We have several admin for each categories (I'm admin for Amiga and TG16/PCE sections). These people work and have family, so they are not checking the requests everyday, plus we have to do research on some (because we can't know everything about every title). Plus, we don't got mail when someone is making a request, we have to check our admin section to see there are requests waiting for us.
I don't know who is in charge of the PC section but depending on how the man is busy it can takes several hours to several days before he adds the games you asked for.
I'm using default mode, I don't remember which one it is. You can request other game modes if you want to
there are many things to do on this table, but shots are really tricky as you said. My score isn't that good either but I don't have many time for now to play (mainly because I'm playing some city builder games for now)
I see a battle coming on this game ;)
video is private. skipping for now
I think it's an emulation bug. Never seen this happening
lol what is this shit ?
already did a few hours ago. Nice score
you're welcome. I also always post a comment when I vote no to explain why
I vote everyday, twice a day. I'm a very active member on highscore.com, but I don't post that much highscore because I don't have time to play retro hardware
it was 700 billions aka 700.000.000.000 points
Playchoice-10 games and NES games are different, with different rules or levels
I believe the evidence could have been doctored or stolen.
Are you serious ? What the point to stole this kind of evidence ? And tell me where because it'll be easy to tell me where I stole the evidence for 200 levels of this game if you can prove it. Before voting no, you should comment and bring evidence for this no vote ! I think the way to vote should be redone because this kind of behaviour begin seriously to upset me !
my father made a 700 billion points hiscore back in time on this table, I never been able to reach this. The only trick he gave me was double bonus all the way
you have to open the youtube video and copy/paste the link in the adress bar which is like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxx_xxxxxxx and not the tiny youtube url (you.tube/xxxxx) and it'll work fine
I had one of those Kempston pro back in time, but never liked it as a kid. I always prefered the Zipstick (buttons were better ?)
well, I bought one but not the one on your link (I can't login with my french ebay account).
I'll wait to get it and test it on my A500. Again, thank you !
I use windows movie maker to cut videos. Simple to use and it just does the job
I'll search for this. Thanks
I use Open Broadcaster Software. It's simple to configure and to use, and it's free
I vote yes because this is not the top score.
For 1st place, I'll ask for a video because you can use a cheat to have 5 balls instead of 3 and it's impossible to notice that on a single screenshot
well, it's a low score for dr who as far as I know. I just doubled it today and I think I can go even further with a little training.
For info, you can win 1.2 billion point instantly when winning the daros jackpot with playfield at x4, I didn't do it yet, because I'm stil learning the table. It is very hard to master because every bad shot can make you lose the ball, and if you don't know what are the combo ramps, it's very hard to make big points. But I think this table will be fun to compete with Thetrickster
BTW I have a stupid question for you, what controller do you use on your Amiga ? I use a genesis pad but it's not really good (for obvious reasons)
Can you tell me where to buy a good stick for my A500 ? I'm not able to find one at a good price. If you can find me a megadrive/genesis arcade stick not too expensive (not on ebay), I'll be very happy :)
I love this game but don't know why
added screenshots for website online leaderboard. Ranked #208
you can try to learn all the rules (massive) here : http://pinball.org/rules/drwho.html
Some are really weird and unique for a pinball game
As usual, voting yes but still want to see online leaderboard
btw, for info and for thetrickster, I managed to save 25 doctors on this game but I think I can do better. I still don't understand/know all the rules of this pinball machine
PLEASE NOTE BEFORE VOTING NO that it is actually very difficult to record video on pinball arcade as it makes lag the game if you don't have a very high specs PC.
Lag on pinball game = Game Over
this remind me of super R-type, constantly lagging. My frist game on the snes with f-zero
I find the SNES version better than arcade
so it's not NES emulated but MAME. I skip for now and will waiting submission under correct category
yes, he is. I think I'll ask him why he doesn't show up anymore here
one of the best pinball ever made, but still hard as hell
Voting yes because this score is low, but I really want to see the console/game system or picture of the entire screen
Zaccaria loves stupid designs. There are often holes near flippers making the ball impossible to control. I really don't understand these stupid features
Game Summary + Online Leaderboard
I got no votes seconds after uploading scores. I wonder if someone is not running a bot to vote here.
who is stupid enough to vote no/video desired on 5 scores and yes on others with SAME SCORE PROOFS given ?
I can't understand you, dude
Game Summary + Online leaderboard
Game Score + Online leaderboard
I think some people are angry with pinball arcade. I have 4 and more no votes on all my PA scores and even 6 on my last PA submission.
There's something going wrong here
there's a ratio thing but the MAME ROMS don't obey this, there are always free to download so you can make a good ratio while keeping them in your torrent software and download other things which are obeying to the ratio.
I'm downloading my MAME roms on this torrent website: http://www.pleasuredome.org.uk/torrents.php?active=1&sort=data&order=DESC&category=10&page=0
there are two people voting no/other on every score since a few days, don't worry about them
I'm voting yes
Really nice try to record gameboy
I loved this game as a kid
Of course, Voting yes
I've already got the MAME fullset, thanks anyway :)
grey bullets is a so bad idea. I think I'll give a try to this version too
I guess there is someone playing with our nerves voting no / other on all submissions...
I'm still thinking my ratio control on no votes is a good idea :/
yes, all my scores received 2 no votes this night
wow a big thank to you, kind Sir.
I'll keep adding scores for this game, I'm at level 244 for now, but waiting for them to be added on hs.com
I have the same as you. My scores aren't save on the disk 2, winuae says its because the disk is not standard.
Can you upload me somewhere your winuae cfg ? Perhaps I have a bad setting somewhere which cause this strange physic behaviour
Apparently it's not doing this... That's strange :(
do the ball have the same behaviour as in my game ? It's often braking or changing speed just before going on the flipper (both sides, about mid-way), making it difficult to aim precisely.
If not, can you give me the name of your adf for pinball dreams and pinball fantaisies ?
and if I'm remebering well, you earn jackpot by spelling I-G-N-I-T-I-O-N ?
as usual, you're fast beating my scores. Well done
wrong category. You want to submit this score under the MAME/emulated category
watch the last ball in play. And see how the ball does things on its own or how the ball get stuck in the right lane.
Maybe I'm mistaking about this game (it's old after all) and all of these is perfectly normal, but 1992 is very, very far away.... Games have changed and my expectations too. It's sad to grow up !
well, if you have a working version of frostbyte, and if you can tell me where to download it, this will be mostly appreciated
I'm really REALLY bad at this game
I just figured it while watching my video
Thanks anyway, will retry soon !
I can't remember how to pick up the paint
low score for my Amiga challengers
Score @ 7'06 / no hiscore table
Score too low to enter hiscore table
Score @ 13'13
watch the video to see how bad the physic is emulated (pretty evident on this video)
same behaviour when I'm not recorcding. So, it's a configuration issue or game not 100% supported/emulated.
There's definitively something broken with pinball games on winUAE. I got the same problem of "crazy ball" on this one... Or maybe it's coming for my config file. I really don't know and I'm don't really care...
it seems that ignition is the only table which don't have the bugs I have mentionned on my steel wheel hiscore.
I don't want to download the TOSEC for Amiga, it's kind of huge and many files are bad rips or non working files.
I can tell you they don't have all versions of all games. For example, they don't have the game "frostbyte" for Amiga (and I can't find any working version on the internet)
I think I'll change my site where I download adf. Planetemu does not seems very reliable, I've have many adf files corrupted or not working correctly.
Where do you download your Amiga games ?
hmm interesting, so it's not me imaginating things.
for info, my adf is named Pinball Dreams (1992)(21st Century)(Disk 1 of 2)
no cracktro, no team, so I think it's a copy of the original game but perhaps there was a protection on this game which cause random stuff happening ?
or maybe my memories are wrong about this game. But it's very frustrating to play and think you'll get a good score only because some lucky shots will happen...
each game after the first seems to be worst, the ball seems to do random stuff, this is most noticeable on nightmare, when launching the ball there's a probability of 60% (SIXTY !!!!) to lose the ball without scoring any points. I NEVER seen this on the real hardware, the ball can fall on this table but only if you give it not enough speed.
I'm bored to the max with this game and my scores are so low I don't recognize myself in these. I think I'll play only on real hardware for the pinball series. I'm so pissed off to have play all day and not being able to reach 10% of my old highscores
I played about 5 hours on this table for this shitty score.
It seems the ball physics is broken on emulator, I can't remember these strange behaviors on my real Amiga. The ball is braking, accelerating and changing direction on its own will. It's really depressing
Score @ 10'10
btw jumping on enemies is no use because they don't give points and they respawn as soon as you scoll for one or two screens
I think you didn't played the OCS/ECS version which is awful. The ennemies are barely visible and the major slowdowns are a pain. I think this game should never be released on the A500, the computer don't seem powerful enough to run it correctly (or devs were too lazy to optimize a bit their code)
Game Starts @ 4'07 (damn loading times)
Score @ 10'39 (no more points after)
No hiscore table
I hate this game.
Hyper long loading times + the worst jumping I ever saw + moving platforms you have to be in the center to not pass through + pixels jump in the first level + no map of the level (like in Fire & Ice). The devs were clearly crazy to make this game that way
+ On an A500 the game slowdown a LOT = unplayable game
I think people who have more than 50~75% no votes should be unable to vote no until they go under the limit ratio. It's not normal to vote no on everything. serious should be told this, I'm curious to ear what he think of this
so close and so far. This game is so HARD
Score @ 56'20
my mistake, it's 5 no votes for video desired... I keep saying I can't record my long pinball sessions but no one would listen to me...
I don't understand why the online leaderboard isn't enough for these people ?
I got one score with 5 no votes but still waiting for votes. So I guess it's 6 no votes to disqualify a score ?
The other one is at 3 no votes... Still don't understand these "no/other" votes
Score @ 32'20
failed to enter my initials as the controller was badly configured
the same goes for me, don't know why this scores and not the others....
yes, the powerups are feeling the same, but the game is much much easier than raiden and a lot more forgiving. I only played in easy though
you only can have 2 buttons (on real hardware) on games compatible (like Project-X, and a few others), it's generally set in the game options.
There is another solution but you'll have to destroy a controller. I find a tutorial with a megadrive/genesis pad here : http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=62643
wow it's so hard to get 10 missions in a row. congratulations
Score @ 17'03
nice little game but really boring after 3 or 4 games (the music is awful after 30 minutes of play)
I'm far far away from your top score. I wonder what I missed because I killed almost every monster and take the max gems in each level, but I think it's the warp I accidentaly take on level 18 or 19 which took me to level 25. I may train more tomorrow
already posted a new high with a working adf (I guess ?)
new high with a working adf, well I reached level 32, how many levels in this game ? I think 40
Score @ 31'16
Guru Meditation at the start of level 27. I'll try another adf next time, really bad luck with this game
Score @ 26'26
I lost the link to the sd-card reader for Amiga you gave me last month. Can you recall me where it was ? Thanks in advance
someone give me an adf already, I'll test it today, the name of the file is: GianaSisters_crSkyline_tLFC_100percent.adf
too bad there isn't any retro arcade where I live
My dad always prefered going to the arcades to play, but he bought a NES and a colecovision soon enough, but I don't remember the games clearly, not as clear as the commodore games. Strange enough :)
Because I don't really like facebook. I'm more the twitter guy :)
Score @ 10'41
well I was playing this game before Super Mario in fact.
I Grew up with commodore machines
OK ! but I'm not very active there
I was training this afternoon then suddenyl I reached level 21 and then, giana keeps falling through the ground when starting... So I left the game :(
Bug @ 20'40
Score @ 21'16
Score @ 13'05
The long will be long to beat Maxwel highscore
Hi ! I'm Gem'X !
it's strange you're still with the old (red) UI (the new is blue & gray). Haven't you download the latest update ?
voting yes but really want to see the online leaderboard
btw thank you for addind me in the trust zone. I vote yes on every score you post too
yes that's my real name. Game gives it because it is linked to my google account.
you can see it's real me because I've uploaded the same profile picture than my avatar on HS.com. Hope this will be enough for my scores to pass
which key to change weapon ? I can't find a manual online
if you find how to play arnie 2, please tell me. I had bad times with finding grenades which are necessary to unlock new level screns
Impossible score :D
video is private
I don't know. but there is usually 2 or 3 people voting no on my PA scores.
I really don't care anymore for the no votes but this is becoming pretty ridiculous. And nobody seems to care about that. when 5 people will decide to come here and vote no on everything so that no score can pass legit, we'll see what will happen then. but it is really sad something like that should happen so someone point the finger on this...
always the same guy voting no because he wants a video on my PA scores. I already said I can't make videos on PA because my sessions are too long and it'll takes days to upload these. But he doesn't care and me neither.
Pinball Arcade players have a rule between us, we post the online score board which is difficult to cheat with and we trust each other.
pictures 3&4 just for fun
I love the intro music of this game !
it seems that Mark is back on PA PC !
the fact that you can't change direction while crouching is a little annoying. I think I'll train more on real hardware, I was able to go for the last boss 25 years ago !
Also, screenshot from the video.
sound off sync after upload...
I think you need some wav (turbo.zip) for this game (place them into samples directory), you can download it there : http://www.progettosnaps.net/samples/
Ah WHDload !
I'm still trying to understand how to make this work under WinUAE
very nice score
If I remember well, you have to remove the extended RAM for this game. Crappy programmation on early amiga doesn't like it. (just use 512K ram for base and 0 for the rest except 1 MB for fast, should work great). Some games doesn't like multiple floppy drives too, when you encounter problems (guru meditation) try these two, this solves about 90% of problems on title screen or games what won't pass the workbench screen.
But I agree with you, almost all Atari conversion sucks on Amiga, crappy controls and low fps
you must play on original hardware. All chinese consoles or clones machines are not using original hardware but software emulation/hardware replacement. But, playing roms on the original console is not considered emulated. I don't know if my explanations are so good.
But you should consider resubmitting this score in emulated section (I skip too on this entry)
Thanks for the explanation. I wouldn't have figured this myself
how do you know he used continues ?
there's also an Amiga & Atari ST version ;)
very nice score. I can't beat my score of 60k pts
how much did this machine cost you ? Was this difficult ?
I want to build one for years but I got almost zero knowledge on building things & electronic :/
Thanks. I'll retry soon.
well, this is the kind of thing I would like at home (with a MAME arcade cabinet) but I have absolutly no skill in electronic and even less to build things. So I guess it'll remain a dream
So close and yes so far. I panicked on my last ball and wasted it
Well, I'm definitally not a troller. I spend a huge amount of time, taking my time to vote, before clicking yes or no
Pit Stop Record for fun only
well, that was fast
Is it me, or this pinball is quite difficult ?
no. it's season 6 since the indianapolis table
UI has changed yes, many people complain about it but I don't care about it
what an incredibly hard table. I can't understand all the rules though
Score corrected. Thanks TheTrickster
hum, you're right. I don't know why I didn't read them
yes the game ask your name before the game starts because that's the way you define how much players will start (just press enter without entering a name when the number of players is reached). To select round 1 to 6 or ALL levels, you have to press right or left on the title screen, there's a card at the bottom of the screen which will change, when it displays ALL, you're good to go.
I play the french version but I don't think it is different from the other versions (the game is made by Infogrames, a french company)
yes there are a training mode, I think you have to press right or left on the title screen to change. You have six rounds, you go to the next when you lose, so you have chosen practice. I've got a score on emulated with a video, check it out
before buying this, you should check if the floppy controller is not dead, because this device connect on the floppy cable, so if your controller is dead, changing the floppy for this sd reader won't change anything. I had the problem with my A2000 back in time, not hard or expensive to buy and change the floppy controller (just some soldering)
huh ? Only 600 pts ? Have you played the 6 stages or only the first in training mode ?
back in time I was able to collect 11 parts for the super weapon. To progress, I drew map enemies & mines position on paper with special technics to use on hard monster. I did the same with many games, like the castle part in shadow of the beast and rick dangerous. Because there was no internet to help me :p
so it is a game mode ? I never pay attention there is a difficulty mode select on this game
haha j'oublie à chaque fois que tu es belge
and another near to impossible to beat game. The monster respawn is really REALLY annoying to the max and those damn MINES ! The only cool thing in this game is the title screen music
I always ask myself, what is supposed to mean the [patient] thing for this game ?
the original arcade hardware is a modified NES with multicart, so basically, it's not better than a NES, but the games are harder
well, just figure you mean the floppy led by "DSK" HERM
When floppy led is red, that means system is writing on the disk (not a failure)
power red led blinking is not always meaning a system failure. Some decrunching system or sound filter alter the status of the amiga leds (red AND green) so always wait for a guru meditation screen before assuming game has failed.
Thanks for the link but I think I've downloaded the project-x's adf from this site. Perhaps my cfg file is bad or I download a bad set., I'll try to make this game works
miss to write my initials. NTL instead of MTL
isn't this emulated ? skipping for now
it's some sort of Time Pilot on steroids... Well too bad you can't really escape all these deadly shots and just hope not to explode too fast
hmmm I can't read this language... What does SPACE does exactly ? I think I miss something in this game, because you start with only 5 grenades and it seems you can't pick new ones... And there are needed to accomplish the mission. I think I'll watch some longplay if I can find one tomorrow
another one very good looking on the Amiga is Project-X, but unfortunately, I can't find an adf working after the title screen
I could have done better. I suddenly thought there was a problem because usually I never go through the level 2, and so, I thought I activated invulnerability on the trainer screen by mistake and I die on purpose to test this, aaaaaaaand nope, I wasn't invunerable
Game starts @ 7'38
hmm strange thing. You would think this kind of game has no end and no highscore
I've always been bad a this game and I'll never improve
I was thinking this was a good score until I was the other submissions
Game must be ended with 'K' ?
if someone knows where to find a manual for this game, I really like you to share the info. Thanks
Really low score
Correct run starts @ 3'05
vertical video glitch in the center of the screen, due to a bad ram settings or bad adf. sorry for that !
ship's hitbox is not very precise :s
I was bored by the end, so I let the game decides of the fate of the galaxy
you're right, but the PS1 lens was one of the strongest on the market (with the dreamcast)
Problems comes with neogeo CD and PC-Engine Duo, these consoles have a mjor problem with CD-R and even with original game, if the console can't read the sector it's trying to read, the lens can litterally try to force to go through the CD, destructing everything (the CD, motor and lens) and can cause damage to the console itself. The main solution is to replace the original CD case with another one, more modern and with securities on these kind of stuff. (I heard several stories about that, I don't know if it's true but it came from several sources, so I believe in this story. Never had a single problem yet with my Duo-R, crossed fingers)
very good arcade conversion
very good score. On which level did you died ?
thanks. I think I'll buy this in september, because the guy managing the online store is actually on vacation and it'll be my turn in august (and also because that's a lot of money and I have to save some)
This game is one of my TOP5 PC Engine games
almost ALL Amiga games are hard, or very hard. That was a time were people didn't complain about that because that was normal to have hard challenges to overcome. Back in time, my parents gave me money each week, and I was able to buy a 80€ game every 6 months, so it has to last (of course, we had tons of pirated games also, I remember of about 800 copied floppies in my room + a shelf with abvout 150 Amiga games, that was good times)
well, I'm interested to buy one, but I don't know anything in this category of hardware... My main problem is compatibility as my Amiga is an UK one, and it's an A500 with 512K RAM extension. I've never be satisfied with amiga emulation, it's missing something, but buying original disks on Amiga is useless, as floppy degrade fast over the years plus the fact you can't copy (for save purposes) the majority of softwares because of the many protections they added to counter piracy.
so yes, I'm interested in a link to the model you use (if it is compatible with my hardware and it doesn't require too much of hardware knowledge)
nobody because that'll hurt your <insert your retroconsole here> hardware/lens if you do that. The last time I burned ISO was for playing on my dreamcast back in 2002 or 2003.
oh you have to pick up points. Who think this will be a good idea ? Well, I think I'll go for another try soon. Too bad I don't have the magic adf reader on my real hardware to compet
I remember playing this game as a kid and never understood what to do. Now that I know english, all seems much much clear
you're right. I'll retry in english. I'm sorry I always want to play the games in my native langage.
I found zero objects and I've went everywhere in the level, so I guess you have to talk but I think, one more time, I have to read the manual toi understand how the game works (I had it back in time and managed to go to level 4 or 5, but can't remember how this is supposed to be played)
and if you don't record your game, it's near impossible to tell how much you scored.
(0+2) * 2000
The controls in this game are so confusing. I don't know how to shoot !
MagicEngine does play CD games, but not ISO, so you have to burn it on a CD
(1+1) * 10,200 pts
I can't understand a thing in this game. But I remember being pretty good back in time. I should read the manual
no hi-score table
Score @ 9'03
I got lucky because the levels are so different from the NES version. I'm kinda lost
the musics in this game are awesome I didn't know there was a pc engine CD version
the big plane isn't in the wave 3 ? I should replay this soon
I have exactly the same problem. Someone told me the only solution to that is to make a custom controller because nothing really confortable exist on the market...
watch my run, I manage to make 100% each time in wave 2. Don't know how exactly though
OBS has also a preview mode for testing purpose, so you can test different setup before recording the real thing
I minimize all the windows I don't need. you can see some examples in my emulation highscores, or you can play fullscreen, OBS will capture anything "what you get is what you see"
I record the entire screen and not only the window of the emulator. because depending on the software you want to record, it can glitch or struggle the cpu (win uae doesn't even want to be recorded by OBS when trying to capture the window only)
I'm playing with my X-Arcade but no matter how fast you shoot in this game, you can only have 4 shoots at the same time on the screen, the main goal is to focus on groups of squares and to try to make them disappear together (I beginning to do that at the end of my run). you have to learn the short pattern in each level which repeat over time
I use open broadcaster software, it's free and easy to config
even three, mortal combat, capcom vs marvel and sf2
I remember of a friend who had this game on Amstrad, he was able to finish the game with one life. I've never passed the first screen
it's done. I delete this score now
well I'm not a big fan of fighting and beat them up games. The choice is really awful for me
the game selection is pretty bad as far as I can tell. And I think bootleg shouldn't be allowed... It takes me forever to discover that you go down with the green colums in Pandora's Palace. And the galaxian ripoff is clearly a pirate bootleg version... There are so much good arcade games and the 3/4 of the selection is bad games or bootleg. So sad
I'll retry tomorrow with that in mind. It seems much complicated on the contest page.
I'm already bad at tetris in 2D, in 3d it's 10 times worst
Hu ? I don't see another chart ? Are you talking about "Street fighter II" without any subtitle ?
1943 Battle of Midway and 1943 Midway Kaisen are two differents game, the japanese version is harder and the weapons aren't in the same order.
I didn't understand the special rules for the contest so I only played one life
(I hate beat them up)
additionnal screenshots for laps & position (displaying 94, actually 494 laps), pitstop highscore, and wizard goals
I will. but I want to submit a score on TG for every game before
I don't know this weapon. this game is SO different from the original game (1943).
I always play with the 4 way weapon but it don't really work well in this version
you can't kill her, all you have to do is sneak between her legs while she go left - right - left. That's all. Beware of the mighty pinguins :D
well, not quite. I always prefered Slam Tilt to the pinball dreams series
try Pinball Magic on the Amiga, if I remember well, it is nice (but not as good as the pinball dreams which destroyed every pinball games when released)
this game is horrible !
Fun fact: try a soft reset (CTRL+Amiga+Amiga) during the game and see what happens
oh well, I guess I'll have to play more and never beat this score
Hmm I remember going to level 16 or 17 on the Amiga. Maybe I try to find a working adf and upload a score here
Easy to beat score
this game is so fun :D
there are two .zip in a .zip file
I used 7zip to zip the files but it should work fine with any zip software. That's weird.
I've reuploaded a different zip (with the same files) here : http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=01889617986326973786
of course. If it can help you, that's a pleasure
I have uploaded my cfg and kickstart roms (in case you don't have them all)
You may have to change some path, so check all the path fields before launching a game. Maybe the controllers have to be changed to your preferences too. There are two files for each cfg, one with exact cycles and one without, load the cfg without exact cycle if you have low fps (some games are very cpu intensive with this option on)
You can ask me if you have any problem, but it should work just fine. Have fun !
DL link : http://www.filedropper.com/winuaecfgroms
you're right, this is meant to be played on dual screen and with 4 players, unfortunately, I don't have any of these ^^
yes it's on steam. It's a bit expensive but if you like the darius series, this is really a nice game
my score on this game is so ridiculous I don't want to upload it
do you want my config files ? I have A500 & A1200 ready to launch almost every games (I use the A500 config for WB1.3 games and A1200 cfg for AGA games and 1 MB+ games)
I can upload this anywhere you want, and you'll get full screen ;)
sound desync after the upload....
for the people voting no and "other", what do you want more than this video ? some ultra 4K photos of my console ? Or maybe a camera filming my camera filming my TV ? Go get a life you moron
I love this game ! Nice run
could be better but my hands hurt so much after darius I have to stop playing for the day
I wish I could find and buy a bigger pad or stick for my pc engine.
oh and last comment, my tv handle pretty well interlaced input so it doesn't show strange lines or output lag, but the CRT is much much better.
It's impossible to play my megadrive on this tv for example, the color are way too colorful and hurt my eyes so much after 5 minutes of play.
that would explain* sorry for the bad english
As far as I know, (I'm not really the technical guy) my TV handle multiple native resolutions, including 1080p, 720p and 580p (or something like that for the last one) and switch depending on the video input.
my TV is a plasma screen and not a LCD, that'll explain why it looks "good". I have a CRT but I don't have a dedicated room to play on it, so it just waits in a corner that we move in a larger house.
I use RGB connector but I know the previous owner modded the console on both video and audio for better quality.
Correct run @ 2'10 after console crash
Correct run starts @ 2'45
one of the worst game on the pc engine. It's so random and so stupid (I have it too )
yes, I have it too... But it's a lot easier
I'm swearing a lot in french, sorry about that but who think the borderless roads willb e a good idea ? This game is nearly unplayable because of that and the IA moving randomly on the road (I hate that game)

well my TG16 is a PAL and it's 50 Hz, this give a HUGE advantage and you can cheat. That's why I stopped playnig it for HS and use only my Duo-R instead.
And for autofire, mainly shmups have it by default (but not all) so I don't know. using autofire on Bonk's trilogy seems pretty strange for me but if the score has been accepted by Twin Galaxies, I think I'll just shut my mouth and accept it by voting yes.
Yes, I have a PCE Duo-R and I don't have autofire. but I can enable it on my controller (it's not the default one), my question is : is it allowed to activate autofire on games that don't have autofire by default or it is forbidden on HS ? (because it's not the default setup).
If not, we have a major problem, because TG16 users have an advantage on PCEngine users, they even have two, because the TG16 "PAL version) is 50 Hz instead of 60, making the games easier to master (I don't know if your TG16 is 50 PAL or 60 Hz NTSC and I am not saying your score isn't legitimate, I just want to clarify some things)
M'ok, and so, Can I enable autofire on my controller to play games that wasn't intended to have it ? Because of this feature on the TG16, and because the 2 consoles are merged on HS
I don't understand, is autofire allowed on pc engine ?
I red on TG that it is built in the TG16, but on the PC Engine, it is not (I have to enable it on my controller, which is not given with the console).
welcome to the competition :)
Video is private. Skipping for now
zaccaria pinballs are very hard to master, and kill you instantly if you miss a shot, not really my cup of tea :/
another flipped screenshot. I don't like my new camera :(
Clu Clu Land is very hard to master, the controls are a bit akward and unnatural. Still, a NES classic
Ice climber... I always hated this game because of the stupid jumps :(
I don't know why this one is flipped.
they didn't change anything except the music if I remember well.
is this port as difficult as the Amiga version ? It's nearly impossible to go through level 1
Irem was not happy because this game is a copy of R-Type (sorry for the omission)
there's a story behing this game. Denaris was "remaked" into Katakis because Irem was not happy seeing this game having so much success. They threaten rainbow arts into penal if they continued selling this game, then they made Katakis with Irem and shared the money
Sorry for the bad english. you can learn more from this story on Wikipedia I think, or on C64/amiga specialized website
it's the total points counter. You earn points for each star you unlock on each level, it fills a bar, when the bar is full you unlock new games :)
I was waiting for this score.
Well done. I think it's not too high for me to try to beat it ;)
this is twice the same evidence. The website went down while I was uploading
I haven't unlock this mode so, I have to play more. I don't even have any of the games you have mentionned unlocked for now
Basically, to add more explanations, nes remix contains about 10 or maybe more nes "classic" games. You are given a task on every level, for mario bros (not the super version) first level I think you have to collect 3 coins, then, kill 2 turtles, and it becomes harder and harder, one of the level is the bonus stage where you have to do a perfect score within a time limit. When you finished a stage you are given coins, which is like a global score, each time the coins counter reach max, you unlock a remix of a game. For example: you play super mario with zelda rules, or you have to complete a room of zelda in the dark, etc etc. The bad part is that you don't actually play the games, the action stops as soon as you reach the goal or the time is up.
there is also a nes remix 2 which I will buy when I'll have the time to finish the first one.
I'm curious too. what is that NWC you're referencing ?
oh and sorry for the bad evidence. I was in a hurry when I made the pictures
it will be easy to beat, I don't really have played much this game. I just win it and downloaded it for free.
I have many levels to unlock to be able to enter scores for them all on HS.com :)
OMG this score is insane
and now I want to play this game :(
the "II" is only pure cosmetic on this game, I never understood why the artist chose to do this, but hey, he surely knows better.
You can read japanese too in the title that says "A-BI-JI-YA", derivate from latin "Apidae", the insect family/group of the honey bee
And yes, this is a great game, nice graphics, nice music (by chris huëlsbeck) and very hard to master ! plus, it features gradius like power-ups !
not really that new. this pinball was released 3 or 4 months ago. but it seems there's a group of users playing the same table at the same time, for private competition I guess, so it makes sense
This is my last submission for this game.
Sorry for the flood guys
thank you :)
I'll certainly play more this afternoon and request the next levels when I'll be finished
Finally I manage to made up a few requests for this game. But I had to write down all my scores to remember while the requests are processed. Fun Game
just saw I had this game in my steam library and saw your scores. decided to upload some but many are missing on HS.com and I don't know how to request most of the level correctly
in MAME, tournament edition is displayed as "clone" of NBA JAM, at least, it uses the parent roms to work. So, it's the same game with different players ?
I've never played that game
First try on this new game :D the score is very low
Correct run starts @ 4'55
Score @ 9'40
are you using autofire ?
the 6th ship was just waiting for me to be sunk (60M score). I miss a shot and poof, the ball 3 drained on the left
wow you play without nudging the table ?
I'm always nudging it to the tilt limit to avoid the ball drain left or right, but it can be more or less difficult depending on the table. On Dracula table, it's an obligation to use the nudge all the time, because the ball tend to always go in the middle of the flippers :p
On No Fear, the ball goes crazy as soon as you miss a ramp, I don't really like this one
is that you that added me, with a donkey kong avatar ? Because I refused the friend invitation because I was just out of bed and didn't made the connection.
If it was you, please resend a friend invite
I have a photo with my initials on it but for now I can't upload it, so please be patient while my camera is synchronizing with my PC (can take a few hours)
still no friend request from you. I didn't want to be mean, I simply wanted that our "pinball arcade players rules" are clear.
I only request 3 screenshots : one ingame, one of your personnal highscores table, and one other from the online leaderboard. Any additional screenshot is bonus.
We're all pretty happy to see new PA players, this add more challenge for us (even if Thetrickster is already a challenge by himself), so please add your other scores if you have some !
that's what I do. First, take the left ramp to 2 million. Second: enable the X2 score with a multiball. Third, hit HA-HA-HA, eventually get a multiball or an extraball, go in the left ramp. Fourth: repeat until the ball drain.
Nice score, I was wondering how much time it'll take you to beat mine
my nick on Steam is [LCND] Mantalow. Here is my steam page: http://steamcommunity.com/id/mantalowblueship/
You can create an account on Pinball Arcade instead of ingame if it doesn't work: http://www.pinballarcade.com/ and then login within the game (on the main screen)
I think you can add Thetrickster on steam too (browse my friends, you will find him), that way, you can compete more easily without having to check highscore.com
some of my videos are blocked in the USA, due to music copyrights issues. But I live in France, I really don't know how this work. I have alsoa video blocked ni the USA due to a copyright infrigement to Victor Music Japan
Often, the bots are mistaken, the music is not the same as these descripted in the copyright, and I can do nothing to tell youtube it's mistaken
It's been a while I didn't have news or saw him around. So I don't know what he's doing or if he has left hs.com :/
well, that's not I don't trust you, that's just a rule we get between pinball arcade users. Applying to it will just get us more confortable.
Creating a farsight account is free and fast, you can create it in the game (clic on login and it'll ask you to create an account if you don't have one), plus, with an account you gain access to monthly tournaments. you can also add me on steam if you want, so I can check your score there if you found all this too complicated
yes it does have a leaderboard. Go into the options right button and screenshot the "leaderboard" screen. Thanks
I play on PC and you can see how I submit my scores on Pinball Arcade . we have some rules between PA players here, trusting each other by this screen. See TheTrickster scores too if you want another example
I would like to see the online leaderboard on this score
that was an intense game. about 1 hour to score this
I want to see the online leaderboard for this score.
I also don't understand why only in the USA, I mean, Sony seels music all over the world. this isn't logical at all
you are lucky youtube didn't blocked your video because of the music, good score
I don't know what's happened in my last ball, it drained by the left and I got a free multiball ? I was so surprised I didn't read what mode it was
it get tedious at the end, because nothing worked anymore, or I didn't do the correct things to activate the hole. A goofer was blocking constantly the main ramp and all I was able to do is going to the pops, activating the yellow thing and get 3 millions each time. I should read the rules for this one, something is not clear for me
I'm pretty pleased with this score. But Thetrickster's one is, again, out of reach
yes you're #3 for this week, but if you check all time hs, well... not the same
Still don't understand how you guys reach the billion point. This is the best I can do and it was done with only one ball, all the othersgo to the drain immediatly after exiting like nuts the pops
which bumpers are you talking about ? Those just top of the flippers or the two that make the ball going crazy, in the middle / left/right of the table ?
btw I don't understand the rules of this one, I have to check the manual
oh whaaaaat ?
how do you score so much ?
I can't beat my very poor score compared to yours and I am not able to keep the ball in play for more than 60 seconds
Clearly it's the same user, or two people using the same computer. But, I really don't like the screenshot he/she uploads, it look like it is photoshopped because I don't know any artwork who look like this, and any frontend/emulator that will the screen look like this.
And I have big doubts with the legit of the score, because of the hs he/she uploads on outrun is waaaaaaaaayyyyyy higher than the current top world record
I really love the intro music :p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bq0PP0xDtCM
Almost 1 billion better that mine score. It'll be hard to beat for sure, but I accept the challenge. Now I have to play only LAH until I beat this
Correct run starts @ 9'17 / Score @ 16'45
I'm waiting for youi to beat this score
If you do, I think I'll have a very hard time to beat you again because I am currently unable to get to 2 billion points score again
Some scores are getting really hard to beat now, it's been a huge battle between me and thetrickster on pinball arcade
well, I try jumping by instinct during bonus and it worked XD
Happy to see this helped you figured out how to make better scores at this game even if i'm really bad at megadrive games
Just check and I'm currently #2 for LAH in the current PA tournament. I'm not that bad
That's pretty amazing. TOP10 here we are
this table is fast, I almost never control the ball on this one, you just have to chain some ramps, change gear and activate the modes on blinking targets. easy
my 2 billion game was about half an hour long. Millions came as crazy when you chain the gears and the multiball modes
Correct run starts @ 3'07
to do the death save, I push hard to the top and left or right together multiple time when the ball is almost out of view, I manage to do it on the table that have a pin at the bottom because obviously it's more easy by hitting the pin, you can view the death save on this video at the very end : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emVV8_awlEY
So to answer you, to do a death save, when the ball drains left or right, you have to bang very hard the table and manage to make it come back on the playfield, then hit anything to score 3M points and earn the "death save" mighty animation This is really hard to do, and I can't do it every time, you need some luck and good timing when hitting the table (you have to reach the TILT limit on thie feature)
For Second Cousin Frank, there's two things to know about it. First, you can't score it if the ball is not getting in the chicken scoop by the bottom, if you get in by the top, the shot is considered as a miss (like the play chicken feature), secondly, you have to know the second cousin frank bonus IS NOT reseting to 3M points until the pinball table is reset (that means power off), so I tend not to collect it until it reach very high score (Iget a 90M bonus for this on this game as I remember), also, this bonus is share between players, so you can "cheat" the score by playing 4 player game while in solo
There's one thing I have to discover on this table, it's which key is used to activate the smart missile, this was trigerred by a button on top of the gun on the real pinball (the gun launch the ball when triggered), if you find out, please tell me.
And finally, yes, I don't aim for points in many modes. I only try to score the max by resetting the timer in cat millions, red eye, go to the movies. I generally pass on big mistake & find benedict. To maximise score I aim for Lt. Dekker Spinner (can give you many millions points when aiming repetivly at it + "super pops"), the ripper bonus is one of my priorities too, and 5 consecutive shots in the crane score 10M and lock an extra ball for M-BALL (maximum 5 balls on the playfield)
Hope this will help you ! And yes this is war because I played A LOT this pinball when I was a teen and I won't let you take my trophy on this one
that's the main reason that make me buy this official emulators+rom on Steam. I love the way it display the picture like a CRT TV, and while in the room, the light of day match the exact hour cycle. I wonder why nobody has though of making such a frontend with all the picture and video database available for retro games
it is called "SEGA Genesis & Megadrive Classics" on Steam (official emulator)
Last picture shows Wizard goals. it was so much a pain to achieve them all I've decided to post them here as well
3 World Premiere (and a half) in this game. 3 extra balls, 2 death saves.
I prefer Garrison :D
yes, I don't know how thetrickster played his run, but I've decided not farming on level 1 (you can kill the centipede for ever if you want to)
I'll retry soon, I was bored on my third game, so I decided to stop recording
Correct run starts @ 20'39
Nice score !
I have no glory for my score, I played this pinball for years when I was a teen
ah oups sorry, I'm not awake. I just see it's a tv screen and not a box in the second screenshot lol Sorry
missing screenshots ? Will skip for now
yes, I know starfighter on NES, I was thinking back in time it was the movie adaptation and wanted it so much my father bought it to me. what a big disapointment it was
Really low score...
But how am I supposed to get through level 2 ?
So, this is a golrunner clone with better graphism & music, but I'm still confused what to do in this game :s
Score @ 7'55
video is private. will skip for now
I played this table A LOT when I was a kid ! It's a real pleasure to be able to play it again on PA !
this game is incredibly HARD. Nice score
well that doesn't take you long to beat my score
I'll train more, this table is really fun and I think I can do better than my newly added highscore
And for Mark, I really don't know where he is, he's still alive, because I saw him bought some game on steam a few days ago, but I have no clue if he's still with us on highscore.com
Well, it seems I mistaken somewhere then
We'll see if this is corrected when the new table will release soon (Last Action Hero from Data East, can't wait )
Darn, it's late and I don't know what I'm typing, I wanted to say the #1 score that is displayed in hurricane is the same as Grand Champion score (this machine don't make a difference between #1 and Grand Champion), so PA display twice the score as intended to (GRAND CHAMPION, then #1, #2, etc)
Don't know if I'm really clear but I hope you'll understand
oh and I realized the first score being displayed twice is not really a bug, it's the way pinball arcade handle scores that make this occurs. Normally, I mean on other tables, you have GRAND CHAMPION displayed and then score #2 or #3, on this table it's GRAND CHAMPION and then #A, #2 etc. I can be mistaken but I think that this is what is messing with PA score system
this table begin to be really fun when you understand all rules. but I never, never aim for the red and green target because the ball get out of control when I do that, so I keep the ball in play and hope for a random hit on them ^^
well, I never played more of half of the games in the Amiga shmup tournament. I'll do what I can :)
so you're into the shmup tournament ^^ I need to take time to play these games
I lost a ball for nothing because of a camera bug, and I was so close to a third "lost in the zone" mode. nice HS improvement tough :)
it's planned somehow ^^ when I'll got the money for the plane and the trip
what a lucky man you are to be able to play all these pinball machines. I dream of something similar in France, where I live, but nobody seems interested by opening something with pinball or old arcades collection :/
wasted a lot of ball on this game. Still, I've improved my old highscore
ok so now this is a score nearly impossible to beat (like all your other scores )
I think I played it on MAME 0.170 (isn't the version showed on the MAME window ? I'm too lazy to watch).
for info, and I don't know if this change anything, I'm playing with the 64 bits version of MAME
Thank you. Arcade at home :D
I don't know. I missed this score. I'll resubmit it ^^ Thanks
I remember getting to the level 30 or 35 on my old nes. this game gets pretty hard once you change to the third car, and the AI is always cheating and taking all the invincibility bonuses all the time XD
new score with online scores working
Can't upload the friends ladder picture as it doesn't want to work anymore :/
I didn't even remember this game has score :)
well, if you can vote on my scores. I have some scores waiting for one more vote to pass ^^ Thank you in advance
The trickster is a very good pinball player. I have very hard time to compet with him on pinball arcade and his scores are better and better every month.
you can't cheat with this game as you have an online leaderboard maanged by Steam and Farsight website
wow I wonder how you can play on a so tiny screen. My eyes would be bleeding in no time
there are some easy way to record your tv output on a computer. I'm not a specialist but some members here use this method to record theyre long game sessions.
I think you should ask on the discussions forums the method and see if you can apply one of those. I got the same problem as you, I can't record my real hardware game sessions because I only have a shitty phone with a limited harddrive, and my computer is too far away from the room with consoles, so I just take pictures when playing those. The only video I recpord for testing is here http://highscore.com/scores/TurboGrafx16PCEngine/LegendaryAxe/38139 and you can see it's not very good recording
And I was thinking my score was good
I really need to train more but I really don't like horizontal shmups
well, for me I vote yes on almost everything. the only thing I request is a picture of the system with highscore on real hardware, and video for highscore higher than 25% of the actual #1.
I don't request video for real arcade/pinball machines because I can understand it is hard to record its own sessions in this special cases (and hard to cheat too), I'll not request video for pinball games either, because I know as a pinball player it can takes hour before achieving a new highscore.
That are my personnal rules, I won't force anyone to follow them, but I think nobody should vote yes on everything without thinking or establish some personnal rules to follow. you got my point
many people will want to stay anonymous by fear of retaliate fire :)
in fact he has a camera issue and have to buy a new one. Until then, he can't submit any more score
there are always people voting no on almost all systems.
I got one no vote for "other" reason on all my emulated scores and someone wants video proof on my pinball highscores. Some people are really crazy with highscores, and meanwhile, many people don't even check the pictures or the videos I post, because on my youtube uploads I only have 4 or 5 views for 25 votes. I really don't know what's the worst
But I ahve learned to live with I don't realy care about no votes anymore
I would like to see a picture of the top10 ranking please.
Please set your initials also, because it seems you don't use the same on your T2 highscore ? it's a bit confusing
it's a G-27 from logitech, with 12-shifter and pedals (not visible on the picture)
Hard to configure nuder MAME but once it's done, it's so far better than any controller I have
only one score per game.
what's the point of having multiple scores for the same game ?
no problem, youtube blocked it in the USA.
for the brain bug I use the third flipper, sometimes I just keep the ball on a flipper and let it go.
The left orbit is also a problem to me as it release the ball randomly, but generally I lose the ball because of a bad shot right in the middle of two ramps
btw I think this will interest you in some way : http://pinball.org/rules/starshiptroopers.html
Today we'll be attacking Tango Urilla ! This planet has 8 Warriors ! 6 Hoppers ! 5 Tankers ! GO GO GOOOOOOOOOOOOO ! XD
Don't worry, my best play took me on the 4th planet only (and I was lucky because I got 2 "clear bugs" bonus in the command center hole
Here I am for more news ! Apparently there is a tournament like we said, but I can't enter it. When I go on the tournament option in pinball arcade, it does nothing apart the usual "bing!" sound.
Any idea ?
Correct run starts @ 1'40
it's because you surely have linked both versions with your farsight account, so it knows your two accounts are the same person.
Your scores miss us Mark, please be back soon :)
well, at least you win XD
I don't think I can be first at a tournament (and I never was in the past) and I'm not a very competitive man. In fact, I love to play my games alone. Even a poor score satisfy me, even if it's 400% lower than another one, you can see it by what I post on highscore.com, some of my score are really ridiculous ^^
Speaking of tournament, isn't one now on Hurricane ?
I love this table too, it is very interesting and very well balanced. Killing bugs then wipe the planet and go to the next is fun, all the sfx and voices from the movie are really exciting me to the max (I love this movie)., and the music woohoo !
But the ball goes too often down because of a bad shot, the third flipper is hard to master and sometimes the ball goes so fast I lose its track. But, still, if you train, you can progress, I just have to stop shoting randomly expecting the ball will go where I want on purpose, especially on multbiall
erf, this was my next pinball training table :D
three days training to get that score. Man, this table is horribly hard
WOW That's a crazy score.
That'll take me centuries to beat that one XD
and both has a wrong title as it is "Arabian Nights", 3 balls isn't necessary as pinball arcade won't let you play with other rules than the default ones
well, that's the basics of highscore : to be beaten ^^ I'll trying to beat your scores, all of them. but it began to be really difficult for me, I'm not that good :)
Can't make better than this pity score.
I'm unable to lite mansion room, multiball are generally very quick ended. Well, I sucks at this table
and that's where my main problem is. each time I start a multiball, I lost 2/3 balls almost immedialtly, sometimes I manage to get a double or triple jackpot but it's like 1/4 multiball... but the damn magnet prevent me each time to do what I want
Mamushka, cousin it and raise the dead are no problem for me, I manage to survive them and making big points, the seance too, no problem with it, I can knock 3 times in 5 seconds.
And as I said, I am unable to change room (activate room ?) as I don't manage to aim the electric chair or the cemetary XD
It seems I have the opposite problems of all players
Well, have fun beating this one :D
I'm currently trying to play correctly on Addams Family table but I find this table very hard. The ball fall everytime because of this damn magnet and I ain't able to go in the electric chair or graveyard to activate mansion :'(
ok, so highscore.com doesn't like UTF-8 :/
yes but I have other videos with games "Japan Only" or "USA Only", even "Europe Only" and there never be any problem with that. The main problem is that the copyright bots are a little too agressive on youtube, sometimes the title given as proof I "stole" something doesn't match what's inside the video
For this one, it's blocked only in the USA for this request :
????????? being the title of this game and the rest probably the name of the track, so this one is a correct match, but why forbid it in the USA ? The game have only been released in Japan, so I don't understand the logic...
I got other video blocked but my hiscore videos are unreferenced in youtube so I don't have any list or log for these ones, but I think I may have 3 or maybe 4 which got blocked in one or several countries.
My others blocked videos are mainly music from chris huelsbeck (Amiga composer), but as he continues to sell the soundtrack of all the games he worked on, I think this is pretty normal.
Again, I don't "monetize" my videos, so I can't understand, again, why youtube wants my videos to be blocked...
Ah ! I was just thinking the same thing while uploading this score
table only support 7 digits, max score is 9,999,999 but pinball arcade can count points above the hardware limit, so the real score is 19,773,030 pts
yes youtube blocked this video in several countries because of Victor Music copyright... the robots of this website are really crazy, and of course, I can't do nothing, even if I'm not making money with these videos
Dipswitches @ 1'24
can't enter my name because it's japanese caracters only
Game shows 13,353,700 in TOP10 but 13,352,700 for Hiscore. I submitted the lowest value.
Score @ 10'34 & 12'45
the neogeo games were amazing for the graphics and sound (because the machine can handle almost unlimited sprites on screen), more RAM for this system than any other hardware of the same decade, means that the machine can load a bunch of data, the neogeo system was the first to suport 220 MB ROM size, then 500, 800 and 1 TB (if I remember well)
the main problem to this huge amount of data loaded is the severe slowdowns in almost every neogeo game, but the devs managed to make this a key feature. Many games would be impossible to play without them (take a look at Shock Troopers Second Squad, I think this game is a good example)
To answer your question, yes, home & arcade hardware are exactly the same for neogeo system. The only difference is that in arcade you need money to play.
I requested several months ago that neogeo & mame section to be merged and let the only 2 or 3 games unemulated by MAME (mostly bootleg) in the neogeo section but it was never be done ;)
small improvement ;)
yep, he's back but he forget to vote on some of my MAME scores

Ah, you're right.
resubmitting right now. Thanks to notice my error
well, sound is an issue for me as you can hear a lot of the noise I make on the controller but not the sound of the tv. I don't understand why but my phone is real crap. At least it takes 1080p videos I should buy some tripod but I don't want to invest much money in this :/
Well, I don't like "old school" table :/
I never understand the rules and they require more lot skills than modern ones. One shot missed equal sudden death most of the time.
Testing my video recorder.
As you can see and hear, this is not very good. I can't have a direct view on my TV, and the sound is pretty horrible, oh and I swear a lot in french XD
Score by the end of the video with showing my PCE DUO-R
Don't know why they changed the title of the game on the boxart. The title ingame is "Baby jo in Going Home"
Video is in private mode
you can find some A500 for almost nothing on internet (will run everything except for AGA games and over 512Ko RAM game if you haven't any expansion RAM), but the other models are so expensive. That's crazy how people speculate on retrogaming :(
omg what a score
where is the "Y" letter in level 3 ? Guess it's in the room just before the BOSS ?
I played hours on the PC Engine version, and the musics are so better on this console. Especially the level 2 music, which getting faster in the tunnel sections of the level. WOW

Game Starts @ 3'19

The Amiga version isn't identical to the PC version.
The Amiga version is FAR WAY superior to the PC version. Look at the graphics. Listen to that music. It's Amiga baby ! And only Amiga makes it possible !
but ok, the games are played the same way
yes this game is harder than the arcade. And the difficulty settings only give more or less HP to the boss I think because I can't see any differences elsewhere
"Boss rush" mode: On the title screen, while holding Down + Select on Controller 1 and Up + Run + I on Controller 2, press Run on Controller 1.
I can't do that on my PC Engine because I only have one controller but i put this there if you want to test this mode ;)
on the title screen, just press select, then run, a menu will appear to select the difficulty
yes, you can read CD-R without any modification on the PC Engine Duo, but I'd rather use original CDs on it, because I'm afraid to stress the laser system wwith bad quality CD-R. I'm reserving ISO for emulators.
My only hope is to find a Dracula X Original disc at a decent price (I think I'm realy dreaming for that one)
played on easy mode. this version seems harder than the arcade

and why do I have to enable my thruster all the time manually. It hurts my fingers like hell
my main problem with bosses is that there aren't any strategy. you turn around trying to hit him and avoiding the fire thing and missiles. very boring
Shitty bosses :/
I saw that too, some people had a super smash bros marathon
what a score !
I was so tired to fail at 100k of your score TheTrickster that I ragequit the game XD (took me about 2 hours to get this score)

You can't compare the Amiga/Atari with the X68000. If you don't know, the X68000 is made of arcade quality components and it'll be modified later to build the CPS-1 arcade system
Very nice score. How many times did you beat Crazy Bob ?
Well, that's the game
I'll try again
Thanks. It's not easy to beat your scores, especially when you beat my new highscores within a second
played for 90 minutes. Defeated Crazy Bob 6 times.
Hope this score will not be beaten in 24 hours
I wonder if it's bad emulation or bad default dipswitches ?
no auto fire :)
I didn't know there were a version where you respawn. I always played this one, even in the arcades
I never used auto fire if it's not set by default. The Raiden game series hurt my hands a lot

it's not random no vote, I got the same on every pinball arcade highscore since a few months.
I answer the same as The Trickster but the no voter never answer and continue to vote no "video needed". When I'm playing pinball arcade, some game can take up to 1 hour to get an highscore and I reallty don't want to upload so huge video file. Plus, like the Trickster said, recording video while playing can slow down my computer and I definitely don't want to lose a ball because the fps drops suddenly because of that.
All pinball arcade highscore can be verified by steam friends and on the official website, so I don't think video is really necessary to prove these scores are real. Plus, pinball arcade players on highscore.com trust each other enough to be able to see if someone cheated at one point.
I think admin should be able to see people voting no systematically and ban them from the website or preventing them to vote "no". I think I'll create a thread on the forums tomorrow so that admins think about something automatic like "10 no votes in a row = preventing future no votes" or "people with no legit highscore can't vote no"
I think I'll try in the next tournament, please advise me if you know the future schedules :)
I didn't even know there were category in tournaments, I thought it was only for fun
you're fast oO
I'm still trying to beat your other scores

Really bad game, and again, the power up not coming to the bottom of the screen. I hate that ! + blinking bullets : WORST IDEA EVER
Score @ 6'42
I'm really bad at modern shmups
Score @ 5'28
Score @ 3'38
Thank you, and you too ;)
Score @ 4'05
Score @ 7'10
yes, you guess right
Playing all the shmup in MAME in alphabetical order.
Very nice score.
The AI cheats a lot
thank you. The no other voting troll is back too
Score @ 6'01
oh, now I understand.
This guy is really annoying, I don't even understand why he's doing that. We're lucky he hasn't found the discussions area yet. Sure he would flood in here too
OriginalGamer made a better score. This game is really difficult. I don't like the 2 seconds between the moment you decide to use a smart bomb and it's real effect. So disturbing and really useless because I only use them when I'm in real danger

Another shitty game. Almost unplayable. I hate when bonuses fly at the top of the screen.
Score @ 6'34
Seem to be running on another game hardware (1943 ?)
shitty game what the hell this difficulty is ?
Score is 246,504 for level 1 & 2 (see score @ 6'41) + 7,528 points for level 3 (score @ 7'12) = 254,032
Still don't understand how to score in this game :(
same picture for all scores. No other proof because I can't make videos on my android device
ah, you too ? I can't play in "normal mode" the game won't stop crashing after 15 or 20 minutes of play
%I never use the nudge in pinball FX2 because it does nothing except tilting the table I'll regive a try to rome as soon as I can ans see if I can improve my score
Seriously ? XD
Look at my score. I've never managed to beat this poor 1 milloin points because each time I touch the ball, it goes randomly over the table except in the ramps. When I managed to shoot the ramps, the ball never get to the top and fall... directly in the middle XD
Pretty much good score !
right click on the pictures and copy/paste the url to view them in full size
Score @ 11'23
Sure he's wrong, gunhed is a stand alone game.
The french videogame press of the 80's and 90's is full of bullshit because there were no quality control at the time and the average age for "journalists" was around 20. And, as internet didn't exist yet, you can tell whatever you want, no one would ever be able to seek info for an unknown japonese game on a unknown japonese console at the time. Still, I red a lot of this magazines back in time, because it was the only way for me to view the new games on my PCE and ask my father "please buy me this one next time you go to the videogames shop !"
in fact, this game has nothing to do with gunhed.
This is the third episode but not of gunhed, it's the third episode for the star soldier trilogy. Second is super star soldier.
The first episode is only avaiable on NES and MSX, not on PC Engine
There are also joe & mac 2 and 3 but I don't know if they made it to the arcade
Nice score. This table is VERY hard
hehe. Semm you're having a lot of fun to break al the highscore on this game.
I don't have any time to play this game for now (perhaps I'll take a shot at the new table in a few days) because of Fallout 4, in a few days I'll be playing Just Cause 3 and after that, I think I'll go on holiday for xmas, but after that I'll try to regain my highscores
I love the soundchip of this machine, ranked second just behind the Commodore Amiga in my heart
I've already requested twice to rename and merge this entry, without results
I saw your pinball threads on the forum but I don't have too many time to play anything else than Fallout 4 for the moment. I'll take a look at these when I'll be bored of it
My guess, these "cheat" passwords were debug codes for programmers but they were too lazy to remove them at the end
I saw that just after powering off my PCE, 100 pts to the highscore
Played in normal mode, but no proof of it because I can't record video on real hardware
I've taken a picture each time I lost a ball, because it's very easy to cheat on this game (there are passwords which gives you 700 millions points with 99 extra balls and even one where you only have to launch the ball, touch something and have 999,999,999 pts in one second
Well, I've never finish any shmup in one credit. So perhaps there's something wrong with me ^^
easy ? Not so easy for me. I can't beat level 4 boss with one credit
yes it's the "please stand by" screen from Fallout 3 ;) I changed it recently with a screen of Fallout 4 "Mr. Pebbles, the first cat in space"
Totally agree with you. the default mode is powerups + 1 continue (that's the way I achieved this score). For recording videos on android, I really don't know how to do this :p
Score @ 8'04
Score @ 8'35
Score @ 2'22
Score @ 5'05
Yes. Receiving my PC Engine Duo-R tomorrow or friday (I already said it but I'm really excited with this console), a bunch of scores are coming !
Score @ 5'18
> This entry should be merged with "Aero Blaster (TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine Emulated)"
Score @ 4'10
Score @ 28'06
Enjoy the main theme : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQD-21G43kQ
one of my favorite pinball game when I was a kid (and still is), I need to play it on real hardware. I'm still waiting for my PC Engine Duo-R (should arrive friday 13th)
I'm trusting kernzy as he is an old member of this community. I don't see why he would be cheating, he doesn't need to.
A very quick game because I didn't have the time to try to max score. Note that I played in beginner mode (you have more lives but the game doesn't allow you to beat the final boss)
Score @ 48'37
yes, this table is very difficult, you have to aim precisely, and all the modes are timed. I'm always trying to activate the wizard modes but I'm always one or two modes missing before activating all. V12 is harder tough
Score @ 6'55
Score @ 1h22m00s
I'll never be good at beat'em all
they are hard but not impossible. For Tesla, you have to activate (and win) modes in order to earn points, the table won't give you anything by just going in ramps or doing random stuff
Score @ 12'23
Score @ 4'42
Score @ 49'05
Don't know why the game give me so many extra lives, all this seems too easy ?
Score @ 8'00
Score @ 13'59
well, I'm not that bad
New highscore this morning
I focus mostly on gas, to avoid to pay for it in the shop, but you are right, handling and extra speed are the key to win. Because in the last stages, CPu never make mistake and on night stages, if you don't keep up with them, it's impossible to get to the exit in time
Indeed the snackbar is a deadly trap ! This table is fun but I don't have the patience to grind score like you do. Perhaps I'll give it a try the next time I'll launch TPA... With Fallout 4 coming, I don't know when I'll have time for this :D
score improved tonight.
And perhaps again tomorrow
No worry about videos. I upload some on every score just because I can when emulated, but for real hardware I'm not able to bring video proof (I don't have any camera or hardware to record videos).
Great score by the way, I'm really curious to see if I can beat that one but it won't be before some time, I just receive my pc engine and want to play it :D
Well, there will be one in our next house. Ms Mantalow is not very happy with that but she don't really have a choice
BTW in this game, I commited suicide in level 7 with 11 lives left because I died just before the boss and was bored... I hope to be able to move soon and to have a room dedicated to retrogaming, my CRT is waiting in a closet for a place to live again
that's because the game is very sloooooow and the PAL 50 Hz don't really help.
The difficulty is strange because you can pass level 1 and 2 very easily (drink your coffee, read your magazine and just press fire until you beat BOSS number 2 ) Level 3 can be very hard if you don't have the good weapon (III + Homing Missiles), level 4 is just a joke, In Level 5 you have to equip Weapon II + Modules, Level 6 is like Level 1, a little harder, and you don't want to die after this one, because Level 7 is a bullet hell (the little bastard on the floor which keep firing all around the screen), on this level just cover the entire screen with II or III maxed and Homing Missiles or Modules, and then you ahve the level 8, the bubbles hell, I never beated it and even today I die there. I think the weapons to make this level easier is I maxed out + Homing Missiles but still, it's very hard, and I don't even know if it's the last stage
I died the exact same spot that 30 years ago, this damn boss is insane and almost impossible ! Not a good or bad game, just average but like almost every game on the PC Engine, it's addicting !
Yes, they were sticky. And I think like you, surely after 30 years in a warehouse, the plastic has gone warm and cold and give that strange sticky thingy. but games are working like new !
I'll be off tomorrow to seek Hucards in the last and only retrogaming shop of my town. If I can get lucky and find some super soldier !
Just received my new baby ! Not played this console since almost 30 years !
I still need to move because I have no location to make a retrogaming room :D (and the new TVs really sucks with old hardware, I have a CRT but can't plugin it anywhere because I'm missing a room in my home)
The US version of the game seems harder than the JAP one. Strange feeling o_o
Perhaps there's a way to redefine keys ?
And I still missing 5 votes on this score
and my scores are voting very slowly since 2 months. They pass but the 5 or 6 last votes take 4 to 8 weeks to come. Seems like nobody love me or people won't vote for people they don't know, because other people seems tohave no problem to have their scores been voted legit
I press up on my controller (and down for lower gear). I play with an xboxone controller, gears are on the right analogic stick
I just play and see what does what. Perhaps that's why I'm so weak at "old" pinballs, because they don't accept to be played that way.
The multiball is easy on this table, just lock one ball in the pirate's cove, activate the 2-ball mode, lock the 2 balls in the pirate's cove within the 20 secs timer and here you go. Collect he diamonds and go in the top hole for jackpot.
But this table is quite hard and I lose balls really quick sometimes
I find this table very hard. Make me yell at my computer every time :(
My PC Engine should be at home the 5th of November, hey it's in five days !
But I'll have to wait for an everdrive or to buy more games to post some scores on PC Engine :) (and also have to find something to shoot videos on my CRT TV :/)
No differences in the JAP and US version of the game. Strange habit to change the name of the games back in time
200€ is nothing for a brand new PC-Engine. especially when it comes with 5 games. I already bought one, it'll be xmas 2 months in advance this year :) Thanks for sharing the info
I'm really interested ! I think I'll take a look on german ebay ! I had one back in the days but I miss this wonderful machine !
Have you tried to verify the integrity of the cache of the game ? Maybe your game is corrupted and steam need to redownload some files ? That's weird because TPA works perfectly fine on my computer.
This score is my second or third try on the table. Very fun to play
I wanted to correct, there is no "normal" difficulty, it's "easy" or "hard" :s
Score @ 12'05
Score @ 26'39
The game was also played on "normal" difficulty but I don't really care about that
Score isn't displayed while playing, you have to go into the statistics menu in the computers. I did once during this gameplay but can't find when and I'm too lazy to search for it
Score @ 28'59 / first in the TOP 10
It's not a bad game but it's kind of boring
is this game free ?
Ah yes, this is it. Really rare occurance. Only seen twice
And I don't remember how to activate secret mania mode, sorry.
you can go faster, just like I say to you in a previous comment, just pass the five gear by pushing "up" several times before the video mode begins. With this method you can hit the max score for video mode : http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=506029845
Very nice score. I am not very good at this one because I don't understand yet how to score millions, but I'll train
Score @ 11'17
I've never been able to pass this level 8. So Incredibly hard
One of my all time favorite, even if I'm not very good at it :p
Score @ 32'27
Votnig yes, but you should delete this entry as Zen Pinball doesn't exist on PC. It's Pinball FX2 :)
Game A Selection can be seen at 0'45
Score @ 21'05 & 22'05
Score @ 26'59
I missed to enter my initials at the end
Score @ 33'40
I'll try to find this one
Mine is "Menace (1988)(Psyclapse)[cr Ackerlight][t +3 Ackerlight]"
Voting yes because I trust you and because it is possible to score much better on this game (Rookie is very easy, if only I could find an adf plyable with joystick, my score was done with mouse)
there's only one hole on this table, the one you have to go for extra ball, the driving video mode, and the random bonus (under the big traffic lights)
Another Highscore cracked ! Nice job
Eeer, just saw I have a 677M score waiting for votes XD
And I voted on your score. nice one ;)
Just have to replay again and again to beat this one
The helicopter bonus can be collected after you get the jackpot, just go in the hole then in the loop ramp. you have to be in multiball to be able to collect it
I don't like writing reviews when I have nothing to say so they are pretty long with explanations on bad and good points for the game. My 10 first are in french, but the rest is in plain english Hard to write technical when it's not your native language
first, you have to shift gears by pushing the launch button, aim for the helicopter loop (the one you can repeat several times), and the left and right ramp to rise your RPM, once RPM are in the red, shift gear. 3rd gear activate video mode where you have to reach the finish line without crashing into car, my method to win is to pass the 5th fear with the launch button before the video mode begins and I put the car between the right and the middle lane and I just have to move a little to avoid cars . 4th gear activate a mode where all ramps give you 5 millions points for 30 seconds. Finally, the 5th gear will light the redline mania mode (you have to go in the turbo ramp to activate it), in this multiball mode you have to aim for the turbo ramp to light the jackpot (get it in the left ramp, aim for the lock ball). First time jackpot is 100M, then 150, 200, etc...
The 3 targets (red, yellow and green) light the lock ball (follow the green arrow to lock), in multiball, jackpot is activate the same way that in redline mania mode, plus it lights extra ball (in the hole). the yellow target at the left of the table activate the turbo millions, get in for a random prize between 1 and 10 millions.
Nothing more to say, this table is easy to play and really fun. And sorry for my bad english, I hope you'll understand all I've said
You should read my reviews XD I think I have some longer than yours ;)
Apparently, this is a mobile only software. and I don't want rto rebuy all on android (and play on my nexus 5 will be horrendous for my eyes)
Just launched the game and saw all my scores were deleted
Can't find your swarm thing in the game :/
I don't know. I don't have any problem with X-Arcade & WinUAE. I just select X-Arcade left in the input menu. to save the settings, you have to save over your configuration file when you've done with all the menus. It should save graphisms/sounds/input/adfs location/cpu-ram settings/kickstart settings.
I can see a solution to your problem, you can reprogram the X-Arcade to the same keys that WinUAE use, it will perhaps correct your diagonal proglem.
Hmm. It's been a long time I didn't play pinball FX2. Time to take a look at it
Score @ 4'36
Score @ 2'43
Score @ 46'44
First time playing the game. I don't like the weapons system
Most amiga games are unplayable with keyboard. I use my xbox one controller when playing shoot em up, and my x-arcade on platformer or games that require to wiggle stick
Score @ 3'15
Shitty run, I didn't understand soon enough the rocks at the bottom will kil me....
Score @ 4'14
Score @ 8'06
very nice score. It will be hard to beat this one again, and my actual score isn't voted yes yet
I do not need to nudge this table so hard. That's strange.
This table can be frustrating when learning how to play it correctly, but when you do, it is very fun
you can miss some shots, because I do, but some angles are deadly, like missing the left ramp by hitting the left of it, = sudden death, the same occurs if you miss the cup ramp by hitting on its left, the ball fall out right in the middle.
The cup give big points but my main goal on this table is to raise my bonus tip (I already raised it up to 10 million) and to activate multiball
In fact, there are some ways to keep the ball ingame for very long. you can't score quickly on this one as you have to give dinner to the 5 customers and then activate the multiball mode, this will activate jackpot and super jackpot as long as you have more than one ball ingame.
You have to learn where NOT to shot the ball, some bad angles will make you lose the ball immediatly), this table is all about not missing a single shot and keeping focus
OMG you beat me for 200k ! Very well done
That'll make more trophies for you
I'm waiting for the refund, 12€ is way too expensive and I'll never play this games again. The only good points is that you have scores to beat now
Well that was the first and last time I play these pinballs game.
The worst thing is that you are totally right. Playing this game is like playing very old pinball games on my Amiga, like pinball wizard. you just do thing randomly hoping the ball will not fall in 3 seconds.
I know games in alpha stages that cost the same price and are far way better than this.
this game is a JOKE. And I MEAN it.
Even badder than the two other pinball games from this dev. This should be freeware, not for sale
Random score for a random game
I just submit one score for each table and ask for a refund
I just flipping randomly and prying to hit things. Physics are so bad it's impossible to do anything on purpose. Plus, there's nothing to do. Ramps, targets but they seems to activate nothing at all. Really poor design and the physics make me think the devs don't know anything about pinball games. 5€ for this s**t ? NO WAY !
no worries. I'll ask for a refund from Steam. This game really sucks
Really shitty game. Was it made in 5 minutes or what ? I ask for a refund immediatly !
What a shitty game. Even pinball dreams from 1992 has better physics. It's simply impossible to aim anything. 0/10 for this game
Plus, WHDLoad only works if you have kickstart 3.1 or better. My A500 can't handle this (KickStart 1.3), I'm trying to guess what to buy to be able to remove the floppy unit and replace it by a SD reader, but without any good results, and I don't want to invest for nothing
Hm. I'll see what I can do with these three ones
That's the reason why I bought it on Steam. Thanks to Mark who buy every single pinball too
Sorry for the second screenshot, it looks tiny from here. Actually, it's in 1920*1080, so just zoom in or right click and copy/paste the link to the picture in another tab
I love this game. Not a bad score for a first try
Nice one, I don't know if I can beat this one but I'll give it a try.
Yes, that's a shame. this game is so hard with the time limit. I had never finish the beginner mode, always dying on the last boss
I'm glad the emulation is better now, but still not perfect.
Score @ 7'45
Score @ 4'20
Score @ 4'28
Score @ 2'40
Score @ 3'35
Score @ 7'48
Score @ 2'26
Score @ 7'54
Hope I can beat you.
Technically, I can do better as I missed many millions ramps on this run, but it's not easy to control balls when the 2 balls mode begin, I lose one often at the very start, cancelling my efforts to start it
"Super Dude" 2 balls mode for exemple, or how to enable Million bonus & Jackpot
I finally understand how to activate modes and earn big points !
I still can play in DX9 mode but it's a shame they don't fix the game before adding more pinball. They could have stopped before season 5 and remove all these bugs.
Sometimes I have the ball litteraly getting out of the table (pinball reload a new one but it's annoying) or balls getting out of rails or ramps....
I think these Zen Pinball 2 should be merged with Pinball FX2, because Zen Pinball 2 doesn't exist on PC, but it's the name of the game for Android.
Someone has been submitting wrong title here :/
Voting yes but why aren't you submitting your top score ?
BTW I'm quitting for this table. I'm unable to do this score. OI was luck enough to get 16M but this is impossible for me. Congratulations
Oh my god...
you're truely a pinball master
Well, I can't run the game in DX11 mode, the resolution is very weird like 1:22 cinema format impossible to play pminball with huge black lines in top & bottom of the screen.
Also I saw people on youtube who can change the luminosity of the table & room in TPA. where is this option ? It'll be helpful to play on some very colorful table
mainly because I can't beat your other scores
No time left to play this evening. I'll try again tomorrow
I have to, or soon The Trickster will have all the highscores on pinball arcade
20k points below The Trickster
and the phantom of the opera bug again, you should read "MTL" and not "²TL"...
No it's not ^^ I never managed to get this double score either
what a score oO
But I can understand you have to make videos as you go for the world records (I watched a few entirely and it's quite impressive how you master pacman for example).
I don't think I need to record videos for this game, my scores are low. And I can't do it, my internet connection will takes weeks to upload 2hours & more videos...
Voting no : video desired.
Doesn't the online leaderboard enough ? I don't think I can cheat with that. And again, I put videos when I can, I don't want to record 4 hours of gameplay when trying to achieve a highscore and then spend my afternoon cutting and reencoding it...
7 digits only so 9,999,999 maxout but pinball arcade handle more. The same occurs on several "old" pinballs
You managed to beat this one as well. It's quite depressing seeing you beating all my scores I had so much difficulty to get. Well, it seems I had to train more... Again
Almost 5 million improvement
Do you buy consoles exclusively to play pinball games ? :D
Score @ 13'53
Score @ 1'41
just go to the steam forums of pinball arcade. There already are many threads with people requesting friends for the game. you can also create your topic and request friends for the game, you should receive about 20~50 friend requests in one day
You can already add muddywolf, this player is incredible, but he plays mostly pinball FX2 and make tutorial videos for each table
I'm just behind you Mark
I don't think I can do that because of the foot of my screen (I got an iiyama ProLite X2783HSU)
And I'm too afraid the screen slip and fall
GET THE CPU
I'LL BE BACK
My scores are improving, but DSD and The Trickster are better than me. I'm losing all my trophies little by little
Another High Score beaten. Very nice score !
I don't know if this has anything to do with age. I'm just unable to understand how to score on this old pinball machines. I began to play with the modern pinball era and for example on gorgar, I don't understand what to do to get points (and I don't want to read the 300 pages manual in pinball arcade). I don't like centaur where you have to drop targets in order, I don't like space flight because it's extreme punishment each time you miss a shot...
No lights to say: "go here, there are things to do !", no fun for me
Well, I'm last on ALL oldest pinballs, this should enlight your day
small improvement by 600M
Small improvement by 40M
I saw we have two new players, The Trickster and DSD (can't remember the full nickname), making very good scores on pinball arcade. I need more training !
Still can't beat your score GTI_Bel, but this is a good improvement of mine
wrong category Mark. I'm skipping for now
and do you play with a wheel/pedals or a joystick ?
I'm willing to try this game with a G27 Wheel. Because I'm no good with my X-Arcade at this game.
I am unable to reach my old highscore of 289 million. Don't know how I managed to do that
I used my X-arcade to play this run.
I'll try to use my G27 wheel next time, but I don't know if I'll be able to configure it under MAME
Very nice score !
is that a rule in the game or a bug ?
Do you crash on turrets on purpose ?
Very poor score for me
I think the game is running on another game hardware (amidar ?). Sounds are annoying to the max and I don't like the random moves of the enemies. Asteroids fields are annoying..
Bad game if you ask me
Score @ 10'30
Score @ 2'45
Score @ 8'30
Score @ 2'03
Score @ 7'08
Really stupid artwork... Very difficult to play on this little screen
yes Season 5 is out since about 2 or maybe 3 weeks, so the second pinball table will come out soon. I'm already excited !
Amiga Emulation is very cpu intensive yes.
Have you tried Open Broadcaster Software ? I think it takes less cpu/ram than hypercam and it's totally free. Perhaps you'll have better results with this one ?
If I knew I'll be submitting highscore on this site 25 years ago, I'll will have taken photos of all my scores on my Amiga and post it today !
Very nice score btw and voying YES !
Score @ 7'11
Very hard game without the correct controller and I've never play the real hardware so I don't know about all these buttons Game was easier on my colecovision :D
Score @ 2'05
Welcome to the billionaire club !
Merci beaucoup :P
The last multiball mode on Ripley is kind of crazy. It adds to your score all the bonus for the continent's modes you've already done PLUS a new multiball mode with all targets and ramps giving big points. Just an excellent reward
it's been a while I don't receive twitter answers when my games are added. I don't know if this is an issue for the website or if the admins have to do it by hand. I think you should open a discussion on the forums to know :)
Nice score !
This score is not my best but the only one where I still get proof of it. I beat the billion before my computer decided to go crazy and I had to reinstall it. Will try to get back that billion
I don't know. My adf is cracked but it still ask me for password. you can find the manual here : http://www.retrouprising.com/attachments/video-games/ru-games/nicky-boom/3749d1418402484/nicky-boom-europe-.pdf
I think I'll read the instructions booklet... one day
Yes, it happens to me a few times to make mistakes writing my scores, but if someone is kind enough to tell me, I'd correct it as asap
Thank you, but I think this score can be better ! For now, I'm training on Black Rose, this table is very hard and I don't understand some rules on it (like the bonus letters when you sink a ship, sometimes I can sink 3 ships in a row because the game give me 8 bonus letters and sometimes I have to get the letters by myself. Why ?)
on this table, mastering the nudge is VITAL. what I like on this one is that you can have multiple multiball mode at the same time for HUGE points !
You can't add friends like this. you have to send steam requests (or there's something I don't know). I searched for thetrickster too on Steam but same results, there are too many of them !
The troll is here again. Voting : no. Reason : other.
Go in hell or Get a life man
Are you sure this is Gunhed Taikai and not Gunhed ?
Gunhed Taikai is a caravan version of Gunhed (time limited for competitions), and I can't see any time in your screenshots.
You can find Gunhed as Blazing Lasers on this site (US version of Gunhed)
Almost tripled my previous highscore... TWO TIMES IN A ROW. WOW ! And doubled it in my first game
the goal you must have on medieval madness is to activate all multiball modes (damsel, peasant, joust, troll and catapult) at the same time and get the "ROYAL MADNESS". It's not a multiball but it rewards you with big points if you can complete it without losing the ball !
"send them to davy jones !"
yes, excellent of course and I love the music after sinking a ship
Nice score. Black Rose isn't easy
oh my god. This score is unbelievable ! Very good
I was losing concentration at the end. It's very difficult to play this long and it's the first time it happens to me
For big points, take the ramp at the left, that will activate a yellow circle in the hole, go in the hole (craps, poker, dices and slots). when you have done the four modes, you unlock a special mode (can't remember the name right now) : unlimited bals for 45 seconds, you have to aim the 2 orbits in jack*bot and the poker/dice/etc hole, a slot will come and show you what you've win. After that, you have the choice to continue and risk losing everything or take the bank with you. You can also earn special and extra balls in this mode but there are bombs which can make you lose the bank instantly (until you got a defuse). Very stressing mode but you can win billions in a few minutes.
Hope this will help you a little bit :)
It took me about 3 hours or so to make this score
I don't record myself on this game. Because :
1. it can takes me long to achieve an highscore and I don't want to upload or edit a video of severals hours
2. it makes the game freeze or slow down and it is not very appreciated on this type of game
don't worry, we all post only screenshots on this game, just make sure you pmost a screenshot of the online leaderboard (right button on the pinball menu and then leaderboard)
Surely that's the reason, because I prefer the modern ones because I grew up with them I wish TPA make a kickstarter for back to the future or batman pinballs !
Well I wasn't born in the 70's (I'm only 36 yo) but i've red a lot of books from Asimov, George Orwell (1984), H.G. Wells (War of the World), Ray Bradfbury (Fahrenheit 451), Pierre Boule (Ape's Planet), René Barjavel (Ravage /Ashes), Frank Herbert (Dune) and so more I can't name them all here.
I red the novel which inspired Starship troopers and it's SO better than the movie, it's a shame the movie didn't go as deep as the book !
For Star Trek, I saw all the classic movie multiple times and minimum 1 time the movies with the new captain Picard. I saw the 2 latest movies in a theater but I don't like them. My favorites are the first movie and the final frontier (ep.V) !
So the mystery is solved ! But who dunnit ? And so I got on the case
I love this table. So many things to do and I'm a huge fan of star trek movies too
My main technic : lgrind the 2 ramps and get the million bonus each time it become available
Yes. On all "older" pinball because I don't like them and I don't understand the rules because there are no blinking light to tell me where to go
made it to the final frontier
SUPER DUUUUUUUUUUDE !
I can't maange to control the ball on this one. So the machine do what it wnats until it decides to let the ball out
I don't like "old" pinball
It's during spins, you can see T / P / A but I don't know if the letters refer to The Pinball Arcade or something else
I love the music but all the colors in the bottom make my eyes bleed each time
"YOU GOT THE POWER !"
I still have to redo all the basic objectives on all pinballs, I'm hoping to crack some highscores doing this
I'm still unable to reach your score GTIBel
Will try again soon !
Thanks for the guide !
So I know know why ruler of the universe don't start, it's because of 1. At least 1 Super Jackpot must have been collected during multiball.
Will retry with this in mind
I'm still playing in DX9 mode. I don't know if DX11 is out of beta :/
this pinball give you billion like it is nothing. just learn how to activate multiball mode.
The easiest one is to aim where the green arrows are, first shoot will activate lock, second shoot will lock ball, repeat 3 times.
Second multiball mode is to activate all the ramps at level 3, when completing a ramp mode you have to shoot the saucer to get a hurry bonus (up to 100 million), this multiball will activate 75 million on any ramp + jackpot & super jackpot in lock ramp (green arrows)
Thirs multiball mode is to shoot all the letter "MARTIANS" around the table, once done, get in the hole to activate martians mode, shoot the 4 martians, and a second ball will come. Shoot as many martians as you can during this mode for big points. also jackpot in the lock ramp.
There's another multiball mode but I don't know how to activate it, but you got 3 balls and have to shoot at the saucer to get points.
And there is the ultimate multiball mode, when you have destroyed the germany, usa, italia, france saucers, you go to mars and have to destroy the last saucer. Once done, you get the reward "RULER OF THE UNIVERSE" and get a special mode where all ramps give you 100 million points. but I'm not very sure how to destroy the last saucer. Each time I'm stuck with the last saucer open, I'm hitting it with balls but the ultimate mode never activate. so I think I'm missing something.
I don't know why but in this game I was unable to activate the ruler of the universe mode. The last saucer was open, I send about 100 balls in it, but the ROTU mode never spawned. Any ideas ? What am I doing wrong ?
Well Win10 is supposed to use DX12 but games have to use and be programmed for it. so the majority of my games are using DX9 or DX11. I don't know if there are already games requesting DX12
Sorry, I only got one screenshot to submit, my scores doesn't appear in the online ranking anymore and I don't know why :(
small improvement (3 billion)
work fine since 0.161 as far as I can remember.
I'm downloading my MAME roms on pleasuredome
I don't really like this table. It's too "simple" for me. I like complicated pinball with many rules and things to do like High Speed 2
I don't know how I scored this, I don't understand the rules of this table even by reading all the documentation
Just doubled my previous highscore
And I'm not using the roulette because I'm too afraid to lose my precious points
tripled my previous score ! What a game !
Fun Fact : The game seem to be unable to handle a score superior to 9,999,999 points (7 digits LED screen)
I was seeking revenge and take back my first place on steam rankings !
Beat my Insanity record in the same run. I'm pretty happy
Small improvement by 1 billion and ruler of the universe title at least !
I use a XBOXONE controller for PC with WinUAE.
For MAME and PC Engine, I use an X-Arcade (One Player) Controller
I never use autofire (it's cheating for me)
I don't have any strategy on this table.
I just aim to the main ramp (the one with the stair) to increase bonus value and try to o in the electric chair to activate mansion missions as soon as I activate them. I manage to go several times in the cemetary bonus x5 with jet maxed out (4M) in this run and the train bonus is quite easy to get and increase by 5M each time.
My main problem on this table is the magnet which make me loss the balls very quickly on multiball. I hadn't understand yet how to master it.
And I managed to finally do the mansion tour ! Great game
the blue squares become purple when you empty a critter nest :)
for the additionals weapons, I don't know either !
I have to retry this game and try to focus and not run everywhere like a crazy man (my main problem on EVERY game )
same as GTIbel, not the right table here :)
I don't think I'll be able to beat this
I always die in this game because I don't have enough food to pass a checkpoint :/
Nice Score. I find this table incredibly hard
The main difficulty in XJ220 is the fuel gauge. you have to refuel on a few tracks and the CPU don't have too (Lotus 1 has the same problem)
I hope they will never make a lotus trilogy remake. these games are still great. I like XJ220 too (superb tracks editor)
I don't know Mark, I don't play games on my smartphone (screen is too little)
Score @ 36'41
Credits = Lives in this game
Score @ 33'02
Nice score. I never been able to be the "ruler of the universe' :(
Score @ 6'12
Didn't remember this game was so hard and so awful to play. Zoom is too close to see where you go :/
Score @ 21'39
First time playing this game and it feels so hard. I don't understand what the game want me to do... So confusing
Score @ 15'11
Score @ 7'40
Score @ 12'18
The first recording was made in 1997 directly ingame, and it Domination from Magic Bytes
I record them mainly from the source files (extracted with a RAM dump while game loading) with deliplayer on windows or Eagleplayer on a real amiga. some are recorded directly through emulation because there is no way to extract the files from the disks
In Nicky 1 I made a mistake and directly go to the bottom of the lake instead of going on the upper floor to get the key, so I get stuck because you can only get the key and then escape thr lake with the invincibility bonus you get just before going down.
In Nicky II, I forgot I had to go left before entering the maze and so I got stuck stupidly.
There's many way to get stuck in this game, I don't know why they did that, I suppose because the game is too easy
I think there will be more because I played a LOT on the amiga when I was young
Score @ 44'54
Score @ 27'37 On Part 2 (I stopped the recording to check the manual for password)
