First ball was amazing though had the table lit up like a christmas tree and the bonus at the end must have been ticking down for a bout 10 seconds:)

wha-what-WHAT??!!!!

2,305,240!... 2,305,240!!! Nice man! Very Nice! You have, very quickly, broken through the curve of talent have have started a great climb into the level of endurance! :ugeek:

It's nice to see you have seen and heard the Sea Witch animation for the complete bonus. Totally cracked me up the first time I saw the lights and heard the thunderous sounds. I was all like "Oh yea! that's going to be big... I did great!" :D

Such a great and beautiful old table. A true Stern Classic... and a wonderfully true recreation. Plus, Martin Brunker's version doesn't come with cigarette stains all over the apron glass... and that is always nice. ;)

11/11/11 is still a very long way away... so for now... I'll have to relinquish my crown to you adambrooks "Winner of the Sea Witch Battle Royale" :geek: ...May you wear it with pride!

------------------

I have a confession to make... I have been releasing my hate and becoming one with the Empire table. There has already been some great tremors in the force. :twisted: ...I'll soon put up a score that will make even the dark emperor, himself, blush.

Well i may have won the battle but the war is uncertain :)

I think playing this table has improved my ability for all tables as it does require patience and endurance. I cracked the scores fairly comfortably and feel that i can still do a lot better on this table. I find it really relaxing and just seem to connect with it. Thanks for my crown i will wear it with pride until the day of the next Seawitch battle royale :)

I also have been trying to score better on the star wars table since onlinechaos posted his high score of almost 2mil!! At the moment i seem to be struggling with it and cannot even get to my own previous score of a mear 900,000. For some reason this table makes me rather giddy and i find it hard to keep control of the table. I know i can work this table a lot better and will try to find the magic this weekend.

my current star wars score stands at 1,845,120 failed badly on my last couple of balls. Im not actually sure how i got this score tbh i didnt advance very far in terms of gettin to sith master and stuff but i did light the bonus in the right hand lane which was activated when my ball flew down there so im guessin that gives a nice bonus. Wont be long before i set a score hopefully :)

I took me 40 minutes, on my first ball, for it to sink in... I will be first to admit that I am not always the sharpest tool in the shed. :oops: For those who know what I am talking about... I must say that I have never ceased to be absolutely amazed by how well Russell's game mechanics were thought out. I see the true point of this table now (which I have only completed twice... for now)... I wish he was here still to talk to him about it... He was a pretty cool dude.

This screen is not about 7 million... it was 29 before I stopped.

The counter flips... 99 + 1 = 00 ;) Or "over the top" so to speak.

:)

It's not about score... it's about hitting that darn hole at the top... in multi ball. ;)




Because, that score might seem to crazy... I'll give you an idea on how I hit it. *Spoiler alert!!!! Stop reading!!! You can stack (cue-up) up *something*... unlimited... from *****

I personally think that Russell knew that the hole was very hard to hit... plus it grabs you screen to show you the little mini movie... I don't think it is an error in coding... but a very well thought out play mechanic.

Don't forget that Russell was a very good player. Hmmm there is a post of his on future pinball data base that might give you an understanding of how well he knew the game...

I'll see if I can still find it. brb

Between looking/playing his mods... and this post... you might have an idea of what I'm trying to say about his understanding... of the game. :)

[edit]

God! I hope he didn't pass away... just went on to other stuff. :?


Tommy! :D
