Hi Folks, I'm very new to pinball and a new GOTG owner so please forgive me if these are lame questions I'm about to ask.
I can finally make some shots a decent amount of the time, so I'm now trying to figure out the rules of Guardians of the Galaxy. My high score is 75M and since I don't get on the board until I get more than 80M, I'm feeling determined to get a sense for how I can earn some big points. So far, I've just been trying to get as many multiballs as possible - and during Groot MB, hit Groot again for 2x/3x shot multipliers. I've watched a few videos on YouTube of gameplay but they can be hard to follow and know what shots/actions are generating the big scores.
Anyway, I'm looking at the Guardians of the Galaxy rule sheet (http://tiltforums.com/t/guardians-of-the-galaxy-pinball-rulesheet-wip/3338) and, sadly, a lot of it is Greek to me. I've done a bunch of searches online to see if I can find something that's written in more lay language and that annotates the playfield but coming up empty.
Here are some examples if anyone is willing to explain these to me....
"During Groot MB all shots will be lit for two jackpots. Jackpots start at 500,000 and increase by 50,000. The 8th Jackpot will be a Super Jackpot worth 4,000,000." Clearly I need to understand what the jackpots are - but have no idea what "all shots will be lit for two jackpots" means. How do I know what the jackpot shots are? During MB the whole playfield is crazy lit up.
It also says "When all Jackpots have been collected, a roving Super Jackpot will appear on the playfield." Again, how do I know what shot the roving Super Jackpot is?
"Completing the five standup targets scattered throughout the playfield will light the action button for (2?) uses of Hadron Enforcer. When the button is hit, it will spot (1) shot during any given mode."
What is the action button? What does "uses of Hadron Enforcer" mean and what does it mean to "spot 1 shot during any given mode"?
"Shoot the lit shots to complete the mode." Does that mean only flashing ones or solid lit ones too? I notice when some modes start, there are just a few solid lit shots - and others there are many solid lit shots. I assume that as I hit the shots, new shots are lit up until I complete all the shots in that mode?
"Completing Antiquities Shop starts Super Lanes for 10 rollovers." What does "super lanes" mean? And do I even want to start it?
On Knowhere mode: "Shots start at 400,000 and increase by ?, with orbits giving double the value." Does that mean orbits in this mode are worth more than orbits are worth in other modes?
On Pod Chase mode: "Completing Pod Chase lights Super Ramps for 10 shots." What does super ramps mean? And if they are lit, I assume that means I want to hit them?
What does "Upgrading" do? On Yaka Arrow mode it says "Upgrade will allow the left two Hadron standups to spot shots." What does it mean to allow the Hadron standups to spot shots?
What's considered a combo? ramp + orbit and vice versa? What else?
Thanks to any and all who can shed some light on this for a newbie!
