    So, Randy, will I be happy when my LE arrives or will it just kick my arse like every other pinball I own or play?

    Power pyramids are down the left of the screen - pops, slings, loops, ramps etc. The screen shows you how many you need to complete each one.

    "extra ball is lit by completing the power pyramid segments" what are the power pyramid segments? The 2 rings and the bullseye?

  • Netherworld Arcade TG High Scores Weekend - Save The Date - 24th > 26th March 2017

    Evening ladies and gents

    I just wanted to let you all know so you can save the date and or make travel arrangements that we are having a massive arcade weekend over March 24th - 26th at Netherworld.

    We are only just nutting out the details at the moment but am aiming for a fun event on the Friday night, DK and Galaga training session and master class Saturday morning, then opening up slots for people to attempt Twin Galaxies approved high scores, pb's and kill screens live on stage across Saturday afternoon/evening and all day Sunday.

    Initial plan is to have DK, Galaga and potentially two more cabs up on stage. If there is another cab you would like set up for the weekend let me know. I feel the stage could fit four cabs easily for people to cycle through.

    I have been getting some great advice (John73, Barra, Kibbey etc) and hope that you guys can work with me and help me make this an amazing event for competitive arcade gaming in Australia.

    Our techs will be working hard to get their machines up and ready for all Twin Galaxies approved settings. Also have a great sound and vision tech who will hopefully help us live stream the action to the projector for people to watch around the venue.

    Netherworld will create an event poster plus limited edition t-shirt and pin for the weekend.

    Lot's more details to come so please watch this space and if you would like to help in any way or have some advice or tips please get in contact. I have been running IFPA approved pinball comps for nearly 5 years but this is our first foray into world class arcade competitions.

    I will most likely set up a small trial event over the next couple of weekends so we can get a feel for the TG process and requirements.

    Watch this space.

    Love Jimmy

      Hey mates

      We're trialling our Twitch channel with our Savage Wizard event today. In honour of the amazing Fred Savage movie from '87, players compete for 5 minutes on Super Mario Bros 3 to get the highest score. Top nine for the day return at 5pm for sudden death heats with the final 3 competing in a 10 minute grand final.

      Already a couple of players gaming the system and or chopping wood.

      Got my headwear organised for the event.

      One day in the very near future, these pins will be collectors items, then they are going on eBay at a huge price to solve all my fiduciary problems

      I'm told I can't play Twilight Zone and Ghostbusters with 10 credits and add the scores together to make the 250,000,000 required - so short of the hand of God helping me out, I'm not gonna get those pins

      There will be a lot of AAers and crazy gamers in Brisbane over the weekend on the dates 24-26 March-2017. (That's not this weekend, but the next one!)

      If you can make it, please come along ...

      Only 5 days to go people.

      If you can attend, please do - want to get as many Aussie scores up on TG - doesn't matter if you are a contender for a WR - just get your name up in pixels on the TG scoreboard.

      Trying to sell the last of the AA merchandise from the last AA T-shirt, stubby cooler and key tag runs.

      Only one shirt left, in XL size - probably be offered as a prize or raffle along with a stubby cooler and key tag.

      A few stubby and key tags left if you want them - all proceeds going to AA..... Key tags about (30 left) and stubby coolers (around 20 left) are available for collection from me at the event. Key tags are $4 each or 3 for $10. Coolers are $5 each. Or you can pick up 6 coolers and 2 key tags for $30 - saving you around $8. Not many left, don't be slow if you want them, we will sell out this weekend.

      Stay tuned, as soon as these are gone I'll be starting a new run of AA shirts, and we'll probably have more coolers and key tags - but it will be pre-order only.

      Don't forget that Netherworld has their own shirts to buy, even if you aren't a local - there is a good chance there will be limited edition shirts for this event to buy - PM me if you aren't a local and want a shirt - I'll grab one for you and mail it if need be, but pretty sure @Jimmi Nails and the guys at Netherworld will also accommodate you.

      Hey mates

      Just a little note to say things are looking good for the weekend.

      Friday night will mostly be a social catch up with a few fun events and time trials:
      • Mario Bros - vs battles
      • DK - races across the two machines, first to 20k. Will do heats plus finals
      • Ice Cold Beer - fastest to complete up to hole 6
      • Frogger - fastest time to complete level 1


      Barra is all prepped for the two master classes
      • Donkey Kong - Saturday at 10am
      • Galaga - Sunday 10am


      Once the master classes are complete we should be able to start posting scores. I will manage the queue for each of the machines and people must log with me whenever they start a new game so I can mark the time on my spreadsheet. The Twitch and projector feed will have 5 windows. One for each cab (Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Space Invaders, Bump' n' Jump) plus a wide angle of the stage so you can see who is playing what. I will also be live updating a small text bar in each window saying who is playing at the time. I am hoping to have all filming of the inside of machines, boards, controls etc done before the masters classes so we can simply roll on to posting world record scores

      We will have t-shirts and posters for sale. Sorry the t's are so expensive, we had some timing issues with the design and only got them to the printers yesterday. That is cost price. Happy to do another run if we don't have your size or you would like extra.

      T-shirt - $35
      Poster - $10

      Attachment 107659Attachment 107660

      We will also have 100 limited pins which you can only earn by jumping on stage and posting a score or winning one of the Friday night comps. Might think of some other fun ways to give them out. Limited to 100.

      Getting very excited mates. Our operators and techs have been working hard to make this a great event.

      Any questions let me know otherwise see you all over the weekend. Cheers!!!

It also proves that if you are a good looking kid (Broderick) that there is hope for you to one day marry a girl that looks like a horse

      Looks like I will be bringing the family in on Saturday for lunch. Should I expect a line up at the door? @John73 what is the movie? Thought it was kind of funny the high score on that Galaga is so low.

      It's Wargames - my all time favourite movie. If you haven't seen it, you need to. Still a great movie 30+ odd years after it was released.

      Be great to see you there on Saturday, I know @Barra wants to meet as many other AA'ers while he is here.

      Oh you'll be playing - it's a requirement after I showed off my crap Pinball skills at the first Flip Frenzy

      It's not about being the world's best, though I do hope Barra knocks off the Galaga score - it's about getting your name on the scoreboard for a few games, seeing where you rank and then improving the next time an event is run - much like playing pinball events for IFPA points.
