Suggested setting for most WS displays, this in no way effects default game play setting, it's just a rendering thing..

Had to tilt the last ball loose, is anyone else getting the ball stuck at the bottom of the right wire ramp after going through the temple?

I did with 9.90 but not 9.12 .... a sideways nudge usually sets it free

Probably half hr to 45min .... not the usual 2 - 3 hrs.

Finally beat my old high score of 96 m on this and 98M on Clarkey's real one before he obtained it.

Still can't get the elusive last letter in "Ripley's" ....was close until someone poked their head in and asked a question .... only to watch the ball drain. :realmad:

Well, this time finally cracked all the "Ripley's" letters and got to "Atlantis", then almost did again .... got thru all seven continents 3 times. Now just need the elusive 7th Super Jackpot.

Made up a makeshift table to have a crack at this over the weekend and have spent more time needlessly tweaking it than play and have also spent more time play other tables than this one.
On pretty much every table I have play, I still have no idea how to achieve the aim of the game.
At least I submitted a score for this game.

Nicely done ! That is definitely the way in the early stages of having a vpin prototype - more time screwing around with controls, software, than actual playing... I also have no idea about table aims, I don't have any instructions for any table but sometimes use IPDB, here is the link for Ripley's at IPDB (http://www.ipdb.org/search.pl?any=ripley%27s+believe+it+or+not&search=Search+Database&searchtype=quick)

A quick crack

Same issues with getting ball stuck on the wire ramp but it frees easy enough.

I'm so close to my 10MB attachment limit so am being super stingy with file size, no idea how to delete files on here can't see how to do it, guess I'll use image hosting next.

BTW keen table watchers should go nab the new table 'Krull' that's recently dropped on VPF - reproduction of a super-rare Pinball machine (only 10 were ever made) that got cancelled before it's first production run, a really fun 3-level table.

out of the new ones Spy Hunter is pretty damn good too.

PS - when the countdown starts on this table.... what are you meant to do ??

I did this the other day and it took a little while to work out.

You need to go to Settings (not My Profile which is where I spent most of my time looking) and then on the left hand side choose Attachments and you can delete them from there.

Do as StevOz and I have been doing, when you're signed in at VPF , use the image host on there.

I been lazy of late and just attaching from here.

Just give it a single nudge and the ball will drop out.

Scores updated, sorry for being slow!

Edit: the new Night mod for Medieval Madness is so good, check it out.

For me it takes several nudges to free it, have to wait at least 5 seconds between nudges to avoid the tilt but it gets out eventually, quite annoying when you're in the middle of a timed mode :slamtilt:

I'm thinking of ending this table thursday night and posting a new table - reason being I am going to be away Friday-tuesday and wont have the ability to post while I am on the road. Any objections ? If not I'll just throw the new one up Thursday night.

Cheers,
