I've owned this machine for 6+ years and had my best game ever last night:

- 8,361 points (most ever for me, I think I had broke 7,000 only once before)
- 9 Free games:
> 4 on points
> 4 on "Blow your Top" special (3 drop target hits and a side rollover)
> 1 for Match!

Nice! When you roll it you can send it to me.

Talk about a 'break out game'... congratulations on that one.

I've had mine set up for a few months now and have had some pretty good games... but ya got me beat!

What do you have your score levels set at?

I have mine at 3,000 - 3,800 - 4,500 and 5,100. Hardly ever get to the 4K or 5K level!

Heat Wave,, Fun game. Almost bought one once. "I Missed it By That Much" (holding out Thumb and Index Finger).

Sounds about right, I have thought about setting my game a little lower but haven't as of yet.

Mine is set at 3,500 - 4,700 - 5,400 and 5,900. Which is what is on the score card itself (#5-295-1B)

Hope to bondo, prime and paint mine this weekend. Can't wait to put it back together and actually play it!

I think you're going to like it, no pushover either!

I got a new high score on my 4 Roses by the way... 1,996. Only 4 points short of rolling it over! Was pretty surprised to do it too, not easy to even get to the second score level (1,400)

Replay levels are set at: 1,000 - 1,400 - 1,600 - 1,800

Again, I'm using the scores that are printed on the card itself and not an insert.

From what I understand... this is what Williams considered their factory recommended score levels. Unlike Gottlieb, who showed it on a master card with all the score cards listed. The factory recommended had an icon next to that score card number, so you knew which one it was.
