One of the things that bugs me about Pinbot (and some other games like High Speed) is the growing jackpot that grows between games and whoever gets the jackpot can really score big since they collect the big points and then the jackpot is reset. It really isn't fair and ruins any tournament play.
Has anyone tried this Pinbot ROM hack?
I did not author this but check this out from Francis over at pinhacks.com:
This hack will...
Make the solar initial value 500 000, and each time you start a game, its initialized at 500 000 again. (no solar value carried from game to game) If you start a 4 player game, the solar value is carried tough
Make the solar value advance setting, more big. Ex, in the original rom the advance setting is from 1 000 to 99 000. I change it so the change you made is now from 10 000 to 990 000. The factory setting I put is 250 000.
