This game is frustrating when you are trying to get big scores, it's brutal when you miss a shot. I can hit the left ramp all day, untill I start multiball, only managed jackpots, no supers yet. Had to stop mid game at about 400k (after this game), too much rage.

You can rainman MOVE YOUR CAR for cheap points as that center shot is so easy to hit repeatedly, but that gets old quickly.

I've been playing Whitewater lately :redface that's pretty awesome though.

Definitely. DMD era games doubly so as there is so much more you have to do. We've had a lot of DMD games this comp, 6 DMD, 1x EM, 1xSS.

I vote for an all EM + SS comp next time :D

Wob
24th April 2018, 09:02 AM
Not sure I agree, Wizard! was by far my least favourite in this comp so far. I prefer to have things to do rather than just hammer one shot over and over.

I would be up for a little more balance between DMD and EM\SS, but not sure I would be up for all EM\SS, that said I am a self confessed DMD era fan.

Jed
24th April 2018, 10:39 AM
Yes, far as EM's go Wizard wasn't the most enjoyable game, there's so many more fun EM's out there with more to do.

I like the idea of an even split of formats, maybe something to consider for a future comp.

I got thru a complete game before it reset the cab. Although when the monster lit in the window it went completely unplayable with massive lag.

well that should be plenty to run the ti.

Sometimes heat can cause shutdowns like you are experiencing whether it's the CPU or GPU.

I would install a diag app like speccy. keep it running in the background, and check in with the temps of your CPU and GPU now and then. it will tell you by colour code (green, orange, red) and temp degrees if the hardware is within tolerance / failure levels. Definitely the 780 should run the table no problems so it does sound like something is amiss. Could even be a RAM issue.

Your components are fine for vpx, but yeah for a cheap and easy upgrade with what you aleady have i would add another 1x4GB and go to 64-bit win7.

that would help your system enormously. 1080 while is amazing card, massive overkill for vpx!

Just 1.

I couldn't work out what the Super Creature mode is that I started in a previous game.

I don't know why sometimes it won't let me increase the playfield bonus. Say's Maxed Out and stays at 1x

You max at 4x then collect the jackpot looks to set it back to 1x or it might time out.

Super scoring is from right ramps then at right hole. I think.

When you start the multiball, hit the left ramp and as the ball rolls around the dish thing it spells CREATURE and each time it spells the word it adds 1x playfield.

I probably used the incorrect terms... but I hope it makes sense.

It is mentioned in the thread :) just get MB going, get multiplier by hitting left ramp and going around the cup (Max 4x), then get jackpot/super jackpot. Jackpot is find the girl (she is in 1 of 3 yellow shots), then rescue in snackbar, then jackpot in snack bar, then hit the bumpers X number of times till super is lit in the snackbar.

Only thing I found out is EB's are easy to get, last game I had 3x EB but it still didn't help me beat my initial score.

I'll try that strategy tonight. I reckon that giving up drinking since December made my pinball and Arcade worse. Usually around the 3x Coopers Sparkling mark my skills also get a 3x multiplier...

No mate it's all good. I didn't get back to this game after my initial score, it just didn't grab me.

I was going to get into over the weekend, but I found myself glued to the Arcade machine instead most of the time. With a fair bit of PES 2018 in the mix too :)
