Just set the section up and Pistolpete78 has offered to maintain it.

Pete will post up theads of games where you can submit your high scores.

Post the games you want added here.

Good on you for offering this up Pete. As a suggestion, there prob needs to be a line specifying the number of balls to achieve the score.

good point Dave.

Maybe 2 high scores 1 for 3 and 1 for 5 depending on how people have their game set up?

pistolpete78
24th July 2009, 09:40 PM
Yeah, that's one of the things I was getting at when I was talking about the settings of the game when the score was achieved.

No. balls in play and difficulty are a couple of important ones. It may then be a case of different scores for no. balls and difficulty. A matrix maybe.......

Anyone know if you can create an excel spreadsheet and import it to a thread on AA.

I love excel:cool:

STTNG - so I've got something to reeeeeeeeach for.

pistolpete78
24th July 2009, 10:40 PM
I'm starting to think maybe a single spreadsheet, different tab for each game, or something like that (if I can have it accessible fromt he site). A different thread for each game may start to get out of hand - there's a few games out there:o

How does that sound? And if it can work - how?

24th July 2009, 11:37 PM
The only way I could see the excel sheet working is to attach it to the thread as a zip. xls isn't listed as an acceptable file format to attach.

But even then it would not be viewable from the thread directly.

just an idea pete, maybe somethin else in this section
What if you did something like they do on rgp and kinda like the mgl (except not everyone will be able to play everytime)
Look at the pinball owners list that felix maintains and choose the most popular pins that members own and see who can get the best score in a week or some shit. (that way your fluke top scores don't count :P )

To keep it even and tidy they all should be set on factory default.
A top 20 (min) players ladder, not top 20 scores because one player may hold all spots.

Just my 2c

Don't forget to attach screen shots of your high score.

Thats a great idea, makes it easy to set your pin up for the high score shot.

You know everyone will or should then have it set right.

Maybe get a sticky going with the high scores rules.

Pete I think you could just put up most of the common games. TZ, STTNG, IJ, TAF, GA.

Fellahs put your scores up even if they suck I know mine do :D lets get the ball rolling.

Are we worrying about pictures as evidence for the scores or just honesty is the best policy?

pistolpete78

I think pics would be good - just for interests sake if anything. But at the end of the day, I think we could all be bound by the honour system just like in Seinfeld.

Ok, following the replies to the idea so far, I think the general consensus seems to be on the following rules. I'm open to suggestions/alterations here. I don't want to make things too restrictive or unfair, s let me know if this can be improved.

1. Factory default settings applied during game - can anyone who posts a score please confirm that the default settings were in place when they got the score. I know this may rule out a few that people have sent in, but it will make it a level playing field for all involved. A bit of competition between members would be great, so if you think you're up to the challenge, go for it. I'd like to add the major default settings up the top of each score list or each game (no. balls, etc), so any help with these details for each game would be appreciated.

2. Scores list will include the top score from each player - to avoid having one person dominate all scores for a game. I am happy to list other notable scores for each player alongside the top score for that player. Sound ok?

3. Pics of high scores - it would be great if you could take a snap to include in your post. Understand it's not always possible, but we're all interested to know what's happening, and the more photos of games the better! Also, if there are 2 scores, really close, it helps being a little more exact.

4. Any other suggestions?

If everyone thinks this is cool I'll go through and tidy up the scores that have been included so far. Sorry to everyone that this may throw off the list......

I'd like to set up some sort of comps, but don't know where to start on this, so any suggestions would be great:)

We'll get there:cool:

27th July 2009, 09:35 PM
Great work Pete and mods... good idea :)

I think we have enough WCS owners to add that one aswell :)

knight76
27th July 2009, 10:50 PM
Sounds spot on Pete.

As for comps, maybe relax the rules a tad on the strict factory settings but still keep the 3 ball rule. Hold the comp over say, 1 month for people to post there best score.

This gives everyone a chance, those who do not own the pin can possibly head to a fellow members house, or a sited pin somewhere to get a score up and post a pic. Relaxing the factory settings rule for comps means the sited pins are allowed in the comps.

pistolpete78
28th July 2009, 10:45 PM
OK I've been through and updated the high score threads, deleting all of the ones that were not 3 starting ball games. I think of the games on the list that they were all 3 ball starters as the factory default. If not let me know.

Sorry to anyone booted off the lists. This is not about playing for sheep stations, just for some good competition, and this puts us on a level (or 6.5 degree) playing field. Just trying to get some sort of standard going.

A couple more games to be added tonight - Kiss, Gorgar and WCS.

A quick update - thanks to all who have been sending in their scores. Definitely some good competition with some of the games.

The photos have been great!

I have noticed that there are a lot of guys who have their machines set to 5 balls, maybe more than have them set to 3.

Perhaps we should keep 2 sets of scores - for 5 and 3 ball games.

Any thoughts/suggestions about this idea and the section in general?

Pete

Arcade King
8th August 2009, 10:15 AM
I agree Pete. I have my machines set to 5 ball with no buy in. Depends on the machine also. Games like STTNG and TZ you (I) need 5 ball to get the most out of the game.

knight76
8th August 2009, 10:29 AM
If there is going to be two sets of scores, are we able to keep them separate in the same thread, so one list with heading 3 ball, and one with heading 5 balls?

Just to keep it a bit tidy is all?

That's what I was thinking too. Probably all 3/5 ball scores in the same first post, under different sub-headings.

[EDIT] - Have updated all threads to include a 5-ball score record as well!

By request, 4 new games added:

AFM
CFTBL
Elvis
Xenon (in a couple of minutes)

Sometimes get a bit busy and don't scan the new posts as thoroughly as I'd like, so if I miss a score that you've added, just send me a PM and I'll get it sorted!

Was thinking since we're coming into the silly season and some of us will be lucky enough to have some time off, maybe it's time for a comp:unsure

My thoughts are maybe nominating 3 games - say the 3 most popular on the ownership list (haven't checked what they are yet). Scores must be on 3 ball games, factory settings. Must be verified by pics.

Prizes - anyone have any suggestions or be prepared to offer something? I'll give it some thought, but thought I'd gauge interest:unsure

Guys Pete has asked me if I would like to help out with the Pinball High Scores section as he is flat out at the moment and is finding it hard time wise to get everything done in here.

So I will be jumping in here updating the scores for a while. Pete of course is still around and is welcome to take over the reins whenever he wishes.

So feel free to PM me if I have missed anything in here, or just continue to post up new high scores and requests for new pin threads.

Thanks Jas for helping out with the section. I know it has slid in the last few months and I apologise that it hasn't been kept up as much as the section deserves.

Been a few changes at work which have made me a lot busier than in the past and it's likely to stay that way. Jas offered a while back to help out, and rather than let the section completely fall over, we've decided that 2 heads will be better than 1. As always, we're open to suggestions about improvements or added ideas which might bring something extra to the section.

Please continue to support the high scores. It is a nice way of having some friendly rivalry on the site. I'll continue to help out when I can.

Guys can I ask that when adding in scores you make a note if the score is 3 or 5 ball, and factory settings, or if not factory any settings changes. Also good to note if on site or any relevant information about the game, like number of jackpots etc.

Makes it easier to add them in, and gives everyone an idea of how you went in your game with the game info etc. ;)

Also, you can add an knight76 in your post if you want me to update it a bit faster.
