First game! Hope this isn't another case of shot my load too early :redface

Got the 12M Dine-Time bonus, quite a few stirring the cup 2.5M's as well. This game plays and looks so great, has to be one of the best SS in VP10.

I usually start games on Friday , but will be at Pincade, so going to go with one that you have would be Wizard, so JustAnotherRat doesnt have to rush over, just yet.

You're spot on about that Bishop, playing in the comp does definitely help to improve.

You also get to learn how to play quite a decent range of pinballs, so if you find them in the wild, you already know what to do :)

When I first started playing VPGL's I was getting flogged on every table and I was probably putting in more hours than most. Now I manage competitive score most of the time, unless I include Dedrok, none of us can really compete with him but it's great to be a part of it, play different tables and learn how to maximise scores and compare your ability against a former Aussie No. 1 pinballer (arguably still the best, he just doesn't compete anymore).

Same... playing in the comps and being driven on by others scores really makes you get into a game more.

take Wizard. First time I loaded it up I really didn't think much of it at all. If it wasn't in the comp, I would never have played it a 2nd time. But now I'mn really enjoying it, the simplicity of the goals and those weirdo flippy flag things :)

this doesn't beat my previous score but i'm posting it cause there's a short story attached.

i was sitting on ball 2 with an extra ball in hand at 75m and starting to get in the zone and my other half comes home and wants to talk. women, they always want to talk talk talk. even when they can see you're trying to maintain your zen-like state.

Tried to get back to the game but it was no good. The mind was gone and i lost the next two balls for 5m. Spewing.

Agree with you wob this is one frustrating game and so slow to get going I don't know about you guys but it takes me ages to get to 80m. Can't seem to get enough decent dine-times but still this is heaps of fun regardless.

It looks great vpx full screen. so much light and depth ]you can really get immersed . amazed by the stuff that gets released and free for anyone by these talented guys in VP. come such a long way in recent years,.

It is a fine example, as are allot of the tables coming out in the last 6-12 months, the guys making them really have made leaps and bounds.

I'm also very slow at this one, but despite the frustration I do enjoy it.

Ask questions in game threads about how people go about getting high scores... usually tips will be shared. Sometimes the tips can drastically improve your score but most of the time it takes a lot of practice as well. I usually chip away at one thing at a time until I understand it and then try to work out other parts.... the weird thing is I often get a good score first or second game and then as I work things out my score goes backwards as my ability isn't good enough to hit the shots I am aiming for... others can hit the shots consistently.

Same. my Best score came first game, and didn't play it too much after that, just a couple more tries and couldn't do any better.

The feeling starting a game of Diner gave me was kind of like lining up at the City to Surf... knowing you got a long haul ahead :)

Dedrok
19th March 2018, 02:47 PM
Yeah.
You definitely had to go left ramp over and over, get xtra ball and max out dinetime.
Then start multi ball to make it easier getting the diners loaded to lite dinetime then bam 12m from dinetime.
Rinse and repeat
