Had my best game ever tonight!  Much higher than my last score, and the first time I passed the pie factory stage twice!  Exciting!

Also all my pics are in correct orientation! ????

Your submitted score has a typo with  "651" instead of "611" shown in the photo.

Yep, I think from some testing, that this web site prefers all images in landscape mode, no matter what orientation the file claims to be.  These were taken with the square setting (hoping that would solve the problem.)  But from how my T2 pinball pics uploaded, I think that's the trick.  Thank you for the vote!

Not a great score, but my best of this round of attempts today.  My all time best is about 65k which I'm working back up to and hopefully can go over 100k eventually.

Apologies for the sideways pics.  Seems random when I upload images whether they'll be turned or rightside up, even when they're always correct orientation on my phone or computer.

Finally topped my old best, but still not Grand Champion (yet).  I posted pics of my top 3 scores on this machine too and submitted the best of them.  Thanks!

Been waiting on three final votes for what seems like a long time now.  Hopefully some folks stop by and take a look soon.  :)

Thank you, I appreciate it!  I love pinball and slowly but surely getting better at it.  I love FunHouse and have been watching videos on scoring techniques.  The best is Bowen Kerins PAPA Tutorial.  Great strategy for stacking modes, activating the million point shot, and building up the bumpers to max before starting the midnight multiball mode.  I still have trouble making the trap door shot when I need to, which will really up my score once I nail the timing for it!

Submitted my highest of the three scores I was able to put up on the board, with pictures of each score.  Still trying to get that #1 spot from DAL.  :)

That's my next big goal!  I was going through my phone's photos and found my absolute best on Joust from about 2 years ago and it was actually 152,100.  I haven't topped 100k since, but I know I can at least hit 150k and will keep working at it!

Thank you!  I'm not very good, but slowly getting better.  Also planning on doing video as I play to chart my progress.  I immediately doubled my earlier best scores simply by watching Ken House play this on Twitch, so learning by watching others and then implementing some strategy has really helped!

The Darius was somewhere in the $1500 range plus shipping.  I got extremely lucky that a friend found it in an old storage unit that was being auctioned off.  And the one I currently own has been in another friend's warehouse for countless years until he offered it to me since we both shared that experience of having played it when it was in our local arcade.  I'm not even a huge fan of those kind of shooters, but knowing it's the real game I played as a kid is the sole reason I'll never sell this one (unless it's back to him some day.)  That nostalgia's a powerful thing.  :)

This game has such awesome music!  I actually own the original one I played as a kid from a local arcade (including the paperwork showing delivery to that location when it was purchased), but it's now missing the center monitor, though it boots and plays!  Need to fix it up soon and play it again!  Always glad to see these up and running in public!  Grinker's has one in Idaho, and I know Jon from 1-Up in Denver has at least one, though I don't know if it's just in his private collection or not. (Maybe this is his? I don't know the history of Hyper Space Arcade).  And I sold one a couple years ago through him to someone in Arizona.

I posted this two weeks ago and still need 8 votes before I can even participate in the discussion forums or provide an introduction.  Please take a look at my submissions and vote if you haven't already.  And thank you to everyone who has voted so far!  I've been voting on many submissions each day under categories I'm familiar with to try and help, but seems like there might only be 15-20 active users participating in the process.

Good idea!  I didn't even think of that, but have added it as a request now.  Thank you!

In addition to my score, I have the top "Most Souls Saved" score of 50!  I don't think that's tracked here, but thought it was cool.

Also, since I'm new to the site and can't post an introduction yet, please check out my Twitch channel where I'll be playing pinball and arcade games twitch.tv/DavidBatman1980 and instagram @TheKreator

My best score yet on this game!  Still not sure why some pics upload upside down.  They are right-side up in my phone, and I checked on my desktop and they appear correctly oriented...  Sorry about that!

Went back to get a pic with ID card of my old submission score and beat it!  So I removed the old submission and submitting my new score of 86700.  My personal best is just over 111,000, but it was a few years ago and I've yet to get back above 100k.  But working on it!

Wasn't able to beat my top score, though it's still there in the 1 slot.  Will submit a new score if I topple my personal best, but wanted to add another pic showing my ID card here for additional evidence.  I plan to start recording my play sessions on video soon too.  Really enjoying this site!

Not sure why the pic is upside down, but it shows up correctly when you click the image.
