Quoted from gweempose:

Don't feel bad. Yancy has some high scores on a couple of my games as well. Try as I might, I was never able to take down his GC score on my GoT LE, so I did the only thing that I could do and sold the game. Now it's somebody else's problem!

I just dont invite him over then you dont have to worry about him GCing every machine you own.

If all else fails I can just play a 10 ball game with the glass off then I will be close to his score.

New code took care of that. Any GC under 5 billion is a joke now.

The new code looks really cool. Kind of makes me regret selling the game. Fingers crossed that GB receives the same kind of treatment.

Lol. Yancy is a hell of a player but I still want to try and take his money at some dollar games. Especially on his Sinbad. Love that game. It's beautiful.

KK thats Not how you negotiate! You tell him Sinbad is a Crap game and if he has any common sense he would sell it to the first sucker he can find! THEN you offer to take it off his hands! lol

I have an unpopulated Deadpool pro playfield, still NIB. No idea what it is worth, so make me a fair offer. I would also be interested in trades towards EMs/cheaper machines, ColorDMDs, etc.

Looks up at 2 billion GC score ....kicks rock. Rats.

#7616 89 days ago

I played a few games on the new code last night and could only manage 2 billion, so I'm not one to talk. Granted, it was right after a 21-year-old's birthday bar party, so I may have been impaired.

Went last night and played it. Pretty fun, wicked short games. Balls coming out of that left orbit are pure danger.

#7624 88 days ago
Quoted from tbaum:

once you learn the game, then ball times flip to the longer side as it is a muli ball type game

the left orbit could be the pitch/angle of pf, but it will slow a bit after 100 plays and also a well timed nudge can make that safer.
but for now, dont full plunge... go for the short plunge skillshots

Also went there last night and played a ton of games and had so many games last under 60 seconds. Left out lane in particular was super brutal. Only had maybe two decent games out of like 12. Game as playing fast for a JJP, and at least the flippers were setup strong so all the shots were easy to reach... man though, I had a rough night.

Gavin is really good about adjusting and maintaining his games.

Give it another chance. Maybe you had an off day? Maybe that one is just set up tough I am sure he will get it tuned in.

IME, every game is different but after a week or 2 of data adjustments that are small can be made to make a huge difference.
I am absolutely loving our WONKA

Do you have a bumper by the left outane? There isn't one in this one and that made it tough too. These aren't complaints - I really enjoyed playing it and even had a few decent games on it. It's just a faster game than a lot of the sterns out there right now, and many of the JJPs I've played.

#7628 88 days ago

I will say the ball lock plate on that one does need a little adjusting to level it with the playfield. Sometimes when the ball passed over it, it would cause the ball to change directions (not always and mostly when the ball was moving slowly). I've seen similar issues recently with the plexi on Munsters premium and LEs.

Want to bring a game back to WI from Ohio? Unfortunately it's not right on your route or I would bug you to work something out. Nice looking Aztec. I bet if you threw it on CL it would go fast.

Yup! No prior registration required. Just show up to any IFPA tourney and the TD submits names & results. IFPA website will update your ranking as you continue to play events.

Are they going to close for the tournament? Meaning, what if I'm there and I'm playing a game that's in the tournament, or WANT to play a game that's in the tournament? Will they kick me off?

All games are in the tournament. The tournament will wait for you to finish your game.

#7649 85 days ago

Also, you may show up as early as 11AM to "warm up" and stay until 11PM when the pinball arcade closes.

Seems dangerous. What if someone likes to take their time before every shot? You know, cradles the ball for one or two minutes before shooting?
