This table is the Daughter's fave on her cab. Cannot beat her on this, 133 odd martians, and 80 odd billion. (she has the vp9 vers though)

 

The VP9 version is much easier. The G5K is the most difficult VP version (but the best), but still not (in my experience) as difficult as the real thing, but I guess that depends on the real machine.

I’m running the G5k I think it looks the closes to the real machine ...but man it plays fast

I think it's much (and I mean a crapload) easier than the only real one I've ever played.

 

Have scored 14 bill on the real machine once, spent 3 hours on it one night and only spent 6 bucks. replay was only 5 billion.

14,235,786,500 Just getting warmed up on this version......

 

On a side note - has anybody experienced any issues with the force field (3 target bank)? I played the g5k version linked above just fine the other nite - today I go to play it and the force field is down as soon as the game starts and if I shoot the ball up there it acts like it hits it but doesn't register any hits. i tried a fresh copy of the game, deleting the nvram... nothing seems to fix it.

That version (I assume it's the JO version) is a tonne easier.. in this competition that is allowed though so fair game.

 

jpsalas - graphics remaster by Brrad1X

2.1.0 GR

I honestly liked the g5 version as far as playability - the strobe multiball in this version is like a deer in the headlights - you can barely see the playfield.

 

UPDATE!!!

I was finally able to "fix" the problem kinda ..... I went into the settings and then chose TEST - then I did the motor test and waited till it raised the force field then exited out of the test. Then I was able to start and play the game. Strange thing is everytime I close the game (even if the shield is raised when I close the game), I have to go back in and do the motor test all over again when I open the game again..... very strange.
