    I'm interested to know what's the best video mode on a DMD pinball game.

    #2 8 months ago

    Lunar Lander on Apollo 13.

    #3 8 months ago

    BSD, Fish Tales, DW are all pretty great.

    The worst one running away the title is GOT...

    #4 8 months ago

    Most difficult Johnny Mnemonic!!

    SNARF!

    #5 8 months ago

    I couldn't find a video of my favorite, which is the Phurba from The Shadow.

    Second best? Waterskiers!

    #6 8 months ago

    So many good ones. Love the ones in Black Rose (outswim the shark, knife throw, rigging swing). The spaceships in AFM are reallly fun.

    Personal favorite is "Shoot the Dog!" in JunkYard.

    #7 8 months ago

    "Beat up the pervert!" on Creech. That guy always gets his medicine!

    #8 8 months ago

    The Shadow is the most fun for me. It remains a challenge, even after many attempts.

    #9 8 months ago

    I like Congo's. Especially on color DMD

    #10 8 months ago

    Baywatch water skiing mode.

    #11 8 months ago

    The suite of IJ modes.

    #12 8 months ago

    One that has not been mentioned and that I like is the Batman forever video mode steering the batmobile.

    #14 8 months ago

    Definitely second your selection for worst.

    #15 8 months ago

    I've always been partial to Raven Bar on Indy, but find all its video modes to be among the best in all of pinball.

    #16 8 months ago
    #17 8 months ago

    Almost forgot STTNG

    #18 8 months ago

    I hate video modes, but I sort of enjoy FT, AFM, BSD. Honorable mention to Stern Star Wars.

    #19 8 months ago

    The two video modes that I think are the worst are GOT and JP lost world with the guy swinging on a rope.

    #22 8 months ago

    Another vote for The Shadow. Quick, challenging, well animated, and encountered no more than once per game. All the things a video mode should be.

    Quoted from Duvall:

    I agree Black Rose has multiple video modes that are pretty awesome.

    Does Black Rose have the most video modes?

    #24 8 months ago

    i think BR has 3. (I dont know of any game that has more than 3) IJ also has 3 (cups, mine cart and saloon)

    I think a number of games have 3?

    #25 8 months ago

    I forgot about IJ,
    I'm don't think there are too many that have 3.

    I could be wrong...............again

    #26 8 months ago

    Fish Tales and Getaway are both great!

    I don't care for video modes, but the Shadow video is the best. It is never easy.

    It has the added challenge of making you remove your hand from the right flipper button to shoot the trigger.

    Doing so will momentarily clear the screen to make scoring an Extra Ball (or finishing the mode) even possible for me.

    You can play it more than once in a game, but you have to reach the Final Battle first. It's unlikely to happen.

    #28 8 months ago

    Love me some video modes.....I think it’s a perfect mix to break up the pinball action but it’s gotta be something you get only once in a while and difficult which I think AFM is not easy to get all those saucers for extra ball although I’m trying a new strategy to turn them into cows instead of saucers to make it easier

    #30 8 months ago

    CV would get my pick I always was a fan of simon growing up, with BSD behind it. AFM drives me nuts, I always forget about the bomb!

    #31 8 months ago

    Don't like any of them and I'd turn them off if I could.
    That Simon Says thing in CV is exceptionally horrible......

    #32 8 months ago

    Jumbo Shrimp
    Civil War
    Original Copy
    Great Video Mode

    #33 8 months ago

    Mine cart in IJ is pretty great.

    #35 8 months ago

    The Shadow knows that it has the best video mode.

    #37 8 months ago

    The Getaway one, like all Dwight video modes, is a waste of time. Just ride the line, guaranteed 26M. Just like ST:TNG etc.

    #38 8 months ago

    Agree!! Every wave of werewolves gets faster & faster.

    #40 8 months ago

    Fish Tales by quite a large margin. Especially with a subwoofer installed. It sounds like WWIII. I own some of the other games mentioned including Shadow and Bram Stokers Dracula and in my view they are not even close to Fish Tales. I think my number two would be Congo, but there are quite a few similar to that where you are dodging objects. I guess I just like the theme of dodging rocks in the river.

    #41 8 months ago

    Supreme

    #42 8 months ago

    I like the video mode on Indy 500.

    #43 8 months ago

    Clearly the best video mode is no video mode.

    #44 8 months ago

    Baywatch has a nearly imamaculate simulation of water skiing.

    #45 8 months ago

    I like IJ's mine cart the best.

    #46 8 months ago

    Gilby Rolls on GNR has the most attitude.

    #48 8 months ago

    I like to" save the children" in MM from the pesky crows. That's once a year when I get that mode .

    #49 8 months ago

    I loved Sea Wolf as a kid so Fishtales get's my vote.

    #50 8 months ago

    If only Cactus Canyon had a cool video mode, it would be perfect...
