The ball on that screen shot is stuck between the main playfield and the lower playfield.

Hmm I'm struggling to like this table.. what the hell am I supposed to do with the ape? I read someone I am meant to control his arms, but he doesn't have any, so I just mash the buttons and hope to hell he hits the letters.

I can't even hit the stock GC score. Just seem to bog down around 1.2bil.

Best effort after a heap of games.

Well it sounds like you are doing the right thing... I find this version isn't that controllable... the VP9 version seems to handle it better however I have no idea what the real table plays like.

Real one plays somewhere in between.

Does anyone else get the odd dead flipper? My right one doesn't respond every now and then (fairly infrequent). Also after the super skill shot mode it seemed to take WAY to long for the flippers to start working again.


At least I cracked the GC.

What FPS you pulling?

I had this trouble earlier in the year on the vpf comp before I updated.
Sounds like a missing ball too.

Not too sure on FPS, haven't bothered to test, but I did just update from a 2gb 750ti to a 4gb 1050ti, limited by a low profile case. Not evidence of stutter.

Small improvement, no position change though.

My GC score on this is 11 billion, but that was the VP9 version which was pretty easy.

the VP10 version plas a lot harder, I should wipe all my VP9 scores out...

Gotta say though I am finding this game more stressful than fun!

Who's heading to Pinfest on the weekend ?

I'll be riding to Lake Macquarie tomorrow from Canberra, via Blue Mountains, riding Bells line and Putty Road, just for fun and cause the highway is boring...

Me and MrB will be at Pinfest for Saturday, arvo session or maybe all day, not sure yet.

Hope to catch up with some of you guys for a game and a beer!

Is there a machine list this year ?

Yeah.
I'll post here if I find it but should be somewhere in the Pinfest thread.

I can't believe I honestly thought that I would good more than 1 good ball in a row... I never do. It was a waste of time posting the first score in case I didn't finish the game in time :lol
