So... I discovered SM rolls at 4 billion. Yes, it's totally time to make it harder. No, I'm not bragging about rolling it. My question is why 4 billion? That seems like a weird cut off. It's not like the digits couldn't accommodate a higher score. Are there other Sterns that roll at 4 billion?
While I do believe most SM games will never exceed that threshold, it is possible if you play your cards right. Once you start picking up x6 super jackpots, the scoring becomes insane. So then, why 4 billion?
I understand that this is probably a unique problem. That game went 2 hours and 8 minutes. I don't particularly care to play longer than that, but it bothers me that if I wanted to, scores wouldn't track correctly. I missed regaining my GC because of the roll.
And in case anyone asks, the glass was on, the tilt was sensitive, the lanes were narrow, and eb's were allowed. Looks like I'm going to have to remove the center post, remove the outlane posts, disable eb's, and add lightning flippers.
But still... WHY 4 BILLION?!?!?!
