    And as Jed mentioned it is the 'elvis' rom that was on my cab as well.
    All good... I have no problems with accepting that I am not good at pinball even though I enjoy it. It seems in the VPGL I can play a table for hours and not go close to the scores of others and end up with the wooden spoon. In the MGL I can have a few games and finish mid pack. I am not sure if that means I am better at arcade games of if the people playing VPGL are just all better than me.

    On this table I can often score 100+million on the first ball but then get bugger all from then on.

          With some of the monster scores I have achieved on some VP tables, it's actually because I have worked out the pattern and then abused it.

          Also works on real machines ..... although you have to be on the money with shot accuracy.

          Looks like Kane and Jas have made me have to come back to play this one again.

            patterns in Arcade games are different. You can predict what is going to happen as you know the same thing is going to happen every time, with the majority of Arcade games. The roll of the ball in Pinball not being so predictable as what a wave of enemies in an Arcade game are. Also obviously you are an exceptional pinball player, and that helps

              There is a lot less luck involved when Dedrok plays compared to when I play. Dedrok is proof that pinball isn't all luck even though my son is still convinced that he must just be the luckiest guy in Australia to have been ranked No. 1.

              If I have a good game, I was lucky. If Dedrok has a good game, it's just the usual.

                Sometimes on some tables (if you have played enough games) the roll of the ball does become predictable. So you know that you have to nudge at certain times everytime.
                If the ball goes out of pattern, then trap the ball to the flipper you need, then start the pattern over.
                Hence 44 Bil on WCS.

                But yes, not as true a pattern as Arcade, but similar.

                JAR
                I used to put in 6+ hours a night just on virtual tables to learn rules of the real pins. Sometimes that would be 2 games.
                Do that over 2 or more years and you work out what to do real quick.

                By the way ...... DedPin is now sitting right next to me in the house. I might pull up Elvis.

                      Ive only got tomorrow nite to catch Kane unless Edy plays again?!? LOL...Thats not a challenge to go and play either Edy!!

                      This happened to me the 2nd time but after getting heart break hotel for the 4th time, it just didnt want to happen. I would have hit the targets at least 30 times. It stopped me getting Graceland the 2nd time.

                      Anyone got any ideas?

                      I just found out the ramp at 50 gives an extra ball. I could only get 3 extras max.

                      Learned alot in the last 2 nights - hound dog is worth a crap load - although quite the draine

                          So over this table ..... there is only so many times you can spend 40 - 50 mins playing and then get the same scores over and over and over and over.

                            At least you don't have the wooden spoon. I have played so many hours on this table and still have the wooden spoon.
