EAB/Lemon Super League 2008: Round 2 - Pinball Fantasies

EAB/Lemon Super League 2008: Round 2 - Pinball Fantasies



Rules:
- The round starts now (Sunday, February 10) and will end at 11:59pm UK time on Saturday, March 1.
- Score as many points as possible.
- Post screenshots of your score in this thread, and write your score underneath. You can enter as many times as you like within the round's time frame.
- No cheating of any kind (including score leeching). If you suspect a contestant of cheating then don't post it in public (anyone who does so will have their posts edited or deleted) - please PM either me or Biscuit and we will investigate it. If we find anyone guilty of cheating then they will be banned for the entire season.
- Please only post your score on either the EAB or Lemon forums. If you have already played this year you have to post your score on the same forum for the whole season. If you are new, the one you post on first will be your "team" for the whole season. However you are welcome to discuss the compo, game etc. on the other forum if you wish.
- We will be playing three tables (Partyland, Billion Dollar Gameshow and Speed Devils) in one-player mode only. Your score from each table will be added up to give a total.

I've read in the manual that "each player builds up the jackpot". So it would be an advantage to play in "8 players - mode". That should be considered "score leeching", shouldn't it?

Btw.: Press <HELP> to be able to select "Billion $ Game Show" in WHDLoad version.

Of course it would, I assume everyone will be playing in one-player mode though. I'll add that to the original post just in case

I haven't played this one ($ Game Show) for a while but shouldn't you get points for collecting prizes? There seems to be no increase in the score when collecting the TV, TRIP and CAR. Is it just the JackPot on the right ramp after collecting the three?

I'm playing the WHDLoad version on a real A1200.

Maybe it would be a good idea to add a link to the manual in the first post or place it in The Zone.

Probably you are just lighting them so they blink. The game gives you little number of points then. When you light up all three of the first group (TV, TRIP, CAR) you can collect them and then you will get some massive scores. The same is with the second group (HOUSE, BOAT, PLANE). This table is strange because you can get here a real huge score (over a bilion which I think is the very first pinball table you could collect such a score quite easily). Though the rest of the "prizes" are not so generously awarded.

My first entry, it's not very good and I'd expect it to be beaten easily enough.



Partyland - 19,542,810
Speed Devils - 21,354,610



Billion Dollar Gameshow - 21,727,520

Total - 62,624,940

I DO collect the prizes. You have to light the the first batch then collect all three in the right trap at the bottom (and that's what I've been doing but no extra points) and if you're lucky a jackpot in the right ramp. Hmmm...

Will check on my A600 using floppies.

If you're using WinUAE like me - just assign <HELP> to a button on your keyboard, mouse or joypad.

Btw., I play this game sometimes with my dualshock-controller and sometimes only with my mouse (mostly when my left arm is occupied by my wife):
left button - left trigger
right button - right trigger
middle button - left click (move mouse down + left click to push ball into play)
mouse wheel up - space
mouse wheel down - F1


@Monsterland: I like Speed Devils and hate the "Billion Dollar" - table. But all tables (except Party Land) pale in comparison to Steel Wheel, Nightmare and Beat Box (Ignition isn't bad, either).

Dunno - works fine for me.

But you could also just press <Page Down> on your keyboard as that's always assigned by default for <HELP> (as I just found out).

You have to push that button at the table selection screen - Party Land and Speed Devils will then be replaced by Billion Dollar and Stones 'N Bones.
