So my old man (Slugburger) visited the other day and stayed over night, he'd driven 12 hours to get to us in Sydney, having not seen my pins we had a quick go of Spidy VE and Hobbit LE that night. The next morning he's up early bashing away on Spidy VE and clocks the Grand Champion score on my machine.. Sure, I'd updated and reset the scores recently but I'm pretty sure that's the highest score the machines had.. Thankfully the Hobbit is a lot harder to score high on, I still got that one... These are my first pins and I'm still learning all the tricks. My Dad is definitely a slap, smack, nudger. I'll have to make sure the GC score is a lot higher next time he visits

That's awesome!

It'd be sweet if you could somehow be able to switch High Score modes.

One for the owner that has spent countless hours on the machine, and one for guests.

It'd be cool to even be able to pick which high score set your working towards so you can play along with guests if wanted.

Come on mod junkies that know how to code! I'll donate cookies to the cause!

That's the best idea I've heard this month.

Road Show has a daily hs list. I like the feature. Make showing them an option in settings.

I TOTALLY agree. One for home, one for visitors.

It'd also be good to have a quick "format" adjustment via flippers. One "Easy" format for guests, and one "Custom" for good players.

Looks like you need to learn some tricks from the old man.

My father in law recently posted GC on my dredd. The dude plays pinball maybe once a month (when we have them over) and he posts GC on his very first game EVER on the machine. Needless to say i opened his next beer for him.

Hahah.. yeah a guest mode would be a great idea. Hobbit has Today's HS.. which is nice when guests get to enter their score..

P3 has user profiles, so you can have one set up for yourself to keep your own personal high scores and settings. Very easy to use too, takes maybe 30 seconds to set one up.
