I just got the Hook Machine and I would like to reset all high games and have been unable
I did a machine factory reset and they did not change. Are these machine defaults or can I reset them to 0 and then play to get the high games


I tried the high score reset and it still did not work but I did find the High score and changed all of them to a low number and now they can be acheived

Thanks for your help

In your audits/settings menu there should be a reset high scores to date option, if so set to on. You shoudl also be able to lower the top 5 or so machine default scores if you want in the audits menu as well.

you can definately tell if they are factory scores if they are rounded like 15,000,000

I hate setting things on our hook. For some reason I can never remember the data east buttons to push. But, yeh, like thudbutt and all those scores are the factory defaults. You'll have to tell us how it plays.... How you're likin' it.

You have to go through each of the 6 high scores, the first starts with "Pan The Man", and use the 2 audit buttons to set each one to 0. I had the same questions when I got my Hook. Hook has a designated name for the top 6 score positions. Once you set them to 0 and then play a game, you'll be prompted to enter your initials. I've had my Hook for a year and still love it, it's a very under rated machine IMO.
