I'll be the first to post a score. the real pinball machine is my favourite pinball I have played many times fortunately as there was many around in wa not so now unfortunately but lucky for me I was able to play this smoothly in vpx as the difference between 9 and 10 a very noticeable probably the same with many really but for me I really noticed on this so I had to get it in vpx and well it has worked so my score is 112474740 vpx 125636

This was nuts! So many extra balls.

Finished the modes 3 times. first 2 times through I just missed out on the eternal life 1 Billion point shot by one shot each time on the path of adventure. I still haven't got that shot dialled in. but cracked the billion shot third time, I made sure I got the path first, before getting all the rest.

I think I was there for about an hour and a half... The bloody coin door kept popping open from all the nudging, which made me panic a bit cause I got a 'reset game' button on the center coin slot :lol

I hate this game. It’s such a grind.
I am glad someone has the same thoughts of this game as me. I thought I was the only one that felt this way.

I have only ever played 1 (well less than 1) game on an real machine. It was at Pinfest in 2015 (I think) and I started the game knowing that it is a popular title and thinking it would be everything a pinball should be... It was my first game on a Sunday morning as I was there for doors open which (back then) meant that not too many people were there yet, ball one and what felt like an eternity later and I was bored and looking around at what machine I could play next. I noticed people starting to queue up for games and there were a couple of people behind me so I just let it drain and plunged out.

Once the VPX version was released I thought maybe if I learnt the rules I'd like the game more.... I can't say I learnt all the rules but there doesn't seem to be much to learn, unless I'm doing something wrong, but I still don't get enjoyment out of this game.

If we're talking grind, I think Medieval Madness is way more of a grind than this, plus at least the theme is good on indy.

But when you're talking scores in the billions and playing for more than an hour or two isn't every machine a grind ? You're just doing the same things over and over. Becomes like marathoning an Arcade game. Grindy.

just wondering - if you're going to spend 1.5 hours or more on a machine to get a huge score - what title isn't a grind ? Interested to find out what I should look for when I get around to buying a DMD era game (never owned one)

My longest ever Vpin game was 5 billion plus on TAF. Again, a massive grind mansion tour after mansion tour, ramp, EB, etc etc etc.

I reckon this is why I prefer the 80's solid state era. Shorter ball times, shorter goals. No huge long grinds !

A grind is 2Bil on the real Avengers, or 425Bil on AFM or 2.5 Bil on Lotr.

And I havenít started a grind in MM yet that was a quick game.

I chose an EM and yas all complain. [emoji3]

Each to their own I guess, but I never get bored on Fish Tales... maybe that's because I can't get a long game time.

It seems we complain about most tables whether they are EM, SS or DMD but we mustn't mind that much as we keep coming back.... worst table in VPGL I've ever come across was Soprano's, but the problem with that was the version as I don't actually mind the game. I don't usually have to worry about grinding it out on any table as I don't often get long ball times (although I am improving).

Well this sucks. 3 times through, only collected the billion 3rd time through and then the game froze. I could still slap the balls around but it didn't add to the score and everytime I hit it up the path of adventure or into the hand of fate and the idols the balls would just sit there until it went on a ball search. I let all the balls drain hoping that at least I'd be able to keep going but nope.

I went for a last ditch bash last night but got some Ipac problems :( everything is fine until I plunge the ball.... flippers work, credits, can start a game, but plunge a ball and the ipac goes dead - light goes off on the board and nothing responds. going to have to dive in and do some rewiring / fiddling with switches, my plunger is dodgy as hell though and pulls a microswitch lever based on a loop of cable ties and fishing line :lol

Funny enough that I spent last night in a Melbourne games room repairing pins and had to fix and play an Indy.

When he said ďgo on, have a go of MedievalĒ I politely declined as I still need to play it here.
I also kept off the T2.

No, as the whole Ipac goes dead - not the game. I found out what it was though, totally my fault :( some bad positioning of a coin door microswitch (plunger button) the backside was pushing up against the lockdown bar lever inside the cab. Bend the pin over and then it bridged onto another terminal. That explains why it went dead whenever I used the hardware plunger or the plunger button as they were wired into the same ipac port.

Gives me an excuse I guess to tidy up the wiring and do a proper job once I can get a new one. I'm a bit of an out of sight out of mind type guy so it's a bit of a mess in there...
