amazing score...

tiny DMD on the Apron works well when you don't have a BG.

The visual depth on this game is unreal. You'd think you were looking at a 3D display, but it's just a standard TV.

Really showcases how far VP has come in terms of realism, combined with the lighting and physics advances.

Edy get some tactile speakers in there so you can have feedback from the mechanicals. You can get an amazing tactile feedback system going with just 2x exciters (trip to jaycar) and a simple amp, around $60 outlay, just a doddle to setup, and the difference it makes is huge, it makes the virtual feel like you're playing a real machine.

Fkn awesome.
Swapped out the problematic 2x2gb ram and new faster 4gb stick.
780ti now tuning vpx over 200fps up from 30fps in the 250.

That's it for now.
Too much other work to finish.

Problem is now I play vp instead.

Helluva score JAR!

The genorosity of extra balls on this game helps - that center hole is so much easier hit on this VP10 version. Pretty much everything is easier to hit regularly compared to the old VP9 physics/flippers.

last time visiting Newcastle played STTNG for the very first time ever at Pizza and Pinball in the back room. First game up scored just over 1 billion, all thanks to 'simulator training' on the VP version :)

It seems to be a table that you get really well rewarded the longer you play.

I played one game on a real one (which was a really nice example) at Pinfest 2015 (and managed to get my name in the score table 3rd Highest 731,883,770).
I played the one at Pizza N Pinball a few times and have no idea of what scores I got as I was just having a game with some friends. I was playing it on the 2nd last night Pizza N Pinball were open but they had to turn it off after a ball went somewhere it wasn't meant to.

thought I was going to get you edy with this game, but lost the last ball for almost nothing.

Turns out copious beers does help :lol poor MrBungle though had to stand around a lot during this game. made it to the final frontier, but didn't know what to do to collect all the big points on offer :( it was crazy with 6-ball multiball, cannons firing, and everything going nuts. Final Frontier seemed to time out eventually, and I was put back to having to go from scratch with the missions again.

Was a blast though, one of the funnest games I've had in VP :D

I'm not as good as others but I seem to get reasonable scores most games now. When I first started it was Draining time. Not sure what changed but I'm sure if you play a little more you'll be able to improve heaps.

Probably an hour if that.

Once you get Final Frontier, the billions add up.
But the big Jackpot runs help.

Longest games I've had are 3 1/2 hrs on both vp and real.

AFM and Lotr were 3 - 3 1/2 on a regular basis.
