1.5 hours, 530m, almost 4 years of trying, everything factory, hardest thing to complete in pinball - DONE!
I've been close, but Mystery Spot and Scratchy's Revenge, both having to be beat not just started, have always have been the achilles heel.
Today, I f'ing rolled that machine. I was making everything I went for. AI, which I now get to 60-70% of the time, and beat half of the time, was destroyed 2, 3, 4, then 5 drained, all in line, didn't have to go back at all. Never done that before. Daredevil, hurry ups, obviously the easy ones. Nailed one super in the first couch MB, then the last 4 in the second. In the mix, started Mystery Spot, but did bad, figured that was it on that.
Having four of the six needed, I had been slowly picking off otto shots and the relight, and was all of a sudden nearing starting that again, and noticed Scratch was ready to go. It was there where I thought, holy shit, I have a shot here, but again, two hardest things, and both needed to be won.
The 2x scoring timed out as I was going to start scratchy, which if a bad bounce came out of there, I was done. Started Scratchy, they MS was lit, started that, and thought again, oh my, this lining up was perfect as I knew you have to hit all PF shots to win each, now I have to only do that once with more balls!!
I destroyed that, and at one point knew I hit them all, and saw the professor confirm that MS was done, but Scratchy's wasn't, and I couldn't see what I needed still to finish it, as I thought it was only all the shots. I read after you have to hit the I&S hole to complete it, but at the time I didn't know, but with all the balls, it obviously happened, and boom Super Duper Mega Extreme Wizard Mode got displayed. Woozers! My wife thought I had won the lottery downstairs... I never thought I would get this.
I did ok in that, but as when I finally got to Valinor, I was overwhelmed by getting there, I didn't really notice what I had to do, but I did manage to rack up some good points. After that was done, I have never played as relaxed... ahhhh.
Got another extra ball through this somehow (I believe 65 treehouse shots or soemthing), but realized I was close to Pretzel, so started that, which lead to a I&S and couch all getting stacked at once, and about 70m quick in under 3 min. Did a third MS to boot before finally draining out at 530m.
VERY happy tonight wasn't sure if I would ever see this, and unlike Valinor before I beat that, I had been close there many times, but with the SDMEWM, I was always scratchys and MS from it, which is farther than it seems. Not sure I could have done this if the stars were not aligned with both those being ready at the same time (highly unlikely) and getting stacked.
