In the spirit of competition 248,500,000 on a 5 ball game. Scored yesterday on my own machine. If I was being honest I would tell you that Rollerball (who I brought the machine from) had kindly posted a score of 509,400,450, and best of 5 loops at the time I brought the machine. I can only assume that his score was on a 5 ball game, as that is what it was set to when I got it. Lord help me if it was on 3 balls! Do what you reckon is fair with Pauls score, but based on the 20 odd minutes I have waited while he played a game on Indiana Jones I have no reason to doubt its validity!

Updated with your score xygt.

Dave, most guys seem to be in favour of including the default 3 ball scores to try to keep a level playing field for the scores recorded. Sorry mate (and Paul too).

Great score though. I'd be happy if I got a score like that with 10 balls with my form at the moment.:realmad:

Special :p i think :unsure

11th August 2009, 08:25 PM
Sorry should have explained it better.

Special normally awards 1 credit, since it is a home machine set to free play, no need for the credit, so I changed it to give an extra ball instead.

So I got over 200 mil on my first ball last night; thinking- yep, on for a winner tonight...













...then lost the next 5 (3 extra balls on the way past 200 mil) for less than 45 million.

So I missed the Grand Champ spot in the H/S chart by less than a bees whisker, AND then to add insult to injury, the damn gear lever double clicked so it spelt my name wrong!!@?!@#?

I tell you I was this close to hitting 'factory reset'

Scored over 2 bill at the courthouse however it didnt have any tilt so was not that hard, but considering that you can get an EB everytime you get redline mania and from from the freeways every new ball, the game can go on forever... Hope to find one in good condition to play...

Very hesitant to post this as I'm new to the forums and don't have any photographic proof of this score but back then I didn't have a camera on my phone. Wrote this score down after the game.

3 Ball factory: 1,841,959,780

Game was played on 22/4/06 (due to HS2 being my favourite game of all time I recorded the date as well as the score) at Woodville South Football Club. 4th game of the day and second pint of Coopers Pale.

First ball was crap, third ball was crap. Ball 2 had roughly 8 redline manias from memory and a buttload of extra balls.

I WISH I had a photo of this score. Just as evidence I can score that high I'm attaching a photo from a game on one of Amusement Worx's pins from the Payenham Tavern earlier this year. A seperate game had 23 loops from the opening plunge. 300M in less than 2 minutes without any software bugs. Included in a zip file because the photo on my phone was a bit too big (I think). Looked big to me anyway.

Cheers

Rob

Great score, even the screen shot score is fantastic.

What do you reckon guys, add the 1.8 bil in and stick it to RGR for a change :D:lol

Give you something to chase Richard?

Shouldn't these highscores be set on factory default settings? It wouldn't sit easy with me to be getting all these extra balls for getting specials no wonder scores are so high.

Yes, factory settings should be used at all times. Obtaining additional extra balls via special is just not cricket :lol

Sometimes slight settings changes are ok and they don't make much of a change to a score in the end, but additional extra balls can really increase scoring.

Hello! I have a Getaway machine too!
One of my fav pinballs. Second one would be a Hook with it's fantastic music.
Btw I made a High Score on my machine too.
I like the old way of playing with 5 balls, not just 3 balls, to make the game much shorter and inserting more coins to play...
So my big score is: 1.287.110.840

29th January 2018, 07:41 PM
Yeah its only cos of the super bands. They make the game very easy. Just hit the right loop over and over, live catching on the left. The key is always having kickback lit, and to relight, only go for the targets on the left to prevent draining. Of course having a game where everything worked helps too.

Interesting. I generally find live catches harder with super bands because they are bouncier. If the timing isn't exactly right, the ball won't stop and bounces off, going God knows where…

Hitting the right loop over and over is probably not a bad idea. It's 5 million a pop. If that can be done reliably with low risk, that's probably a safer way to rack up a score than going after multi-ball. I'll have to try this. If this actually works out, Getaway will join the long list of machines with scoring flaws that make tournament play about as interesting as watching paint dry… :(

Can you remember how long you played for this score?

Michi.

RGR
30th January 2018, 04:18 PM
Nah I thought superbands deadened the ball, titans might be bouncier.. One or the other. The right loop is only to go through the gears (to get to redline mania) and on the game that I played it was a safer shot. It was harder to catch than the left loop. I think it would have taken between 1.5 - 2 hours.

Titans do bounce better and have a slight grip on the ball(they will deaden slight spin)
Which makes controlling at the flippers easier.

Michi

Nah I thought superbands deadened the ball, titans might be bouncier.

That's not been my experience. I had super bands on my machine and wasn't happy. Very bouncy, and they also had a tendency to "grip" the ball, almost as if they were coated with something sticky. It felt strange.

Then I switched to Titan thin rubbers, and was much happier. They play very much like normal black rubber bands. Not too much bounce, and the ball won't "stick" to them like it did with the super bands.
