    I'm a little confused about the one ball hero thing.

    As we are all even, or winning going into the first table, does that mean no one is eligible for it or is only someone who doesn't win the table overall eligible to win a point from in in the first round?

    First table doesn't count (ie, anyone can take points) there will be no one leading the tournament, cause there are no tournament standings yet.

    come on lads, where's the scores! almost a week later and only kane has sumbitted a score.... get a move on !

    here's my first effort, a decent ball 1 hero score helped by building up the solar bonus to 2M then collecting

    3,434,800 (ball in chute start of ball 2)



    and lost the next two balls for almost nothing

    Final score

    3,669,890




    this is an awesome version, it plays very close to the real game. ie, it's just as brutal with soul-sapping outlanes, nudge away to stay in the game. Bord is a fantastic VP dev, he really puts a lot of love and realism into his tables.

    Anyone new to Pinbot:

    fill in the lights on pinbot's chest to open the visor, then put a ball into each eye to start multiball and double scores
    Build up the skillshot by 100k each time by landing the ball in the 2nd last hole, you can get to 1M and if you pull that off you get a nice lightshow and 1M points
    Keep hitting the solar ramp to build up the solar jackpot
    try and nudge the ball on the mini pf to get the ball back into the chute for another skillshot attempt.
    Collect the current solar jackpot amount by putting one of the balls you get in in multiball back into one of Pinbot's eyes. Do not put the 2nd ball into the other eye! shoot the other ball up the solar ramp to collect the current solar jackpot amount while the other ball is captured.

    there's more but that should get you going. Now get going!

    No worries.

    I owned this machine for 2.5 years and played it a lot in that time. Was quite sad to sell it when we moved house. But with this amazingly good version, i feel like I got it back kinda

    Another tip to open the visor MUCH quicker - with one shot: when you get the single line of lights moving along the chest at the start of ball hit the lit line - this will instantly open the visor.

    should probably ask Kane looking at his great score !

    make sure we're all playing on the same rom with this game it can make a huge difference to score. there are a couple roms out for pinbot one where the solar jackpot total stays even after a game has finished, and another where it resets to 0 at end of game. Bord's version uses the rom pb_l5

    That sucks

    it's weird that your third display caused a blue screen - what GPU are you using ? I've only ever had a 2 screen build, so can't help maybe one of the other guys can suggest something to check when running three screens.

    gtx 770 graphics out of my main pc down graded that as i just play xbox for games these days. people were also saying they were having similar problems when using a external dmd on 3rd screen that it just uses extreme amount of cpu I do need to upgrade the cpu but that can come later so I'm not using pinup now but kept the 3 screens just using it for normal dmd now
