The CHUD Pinball Trash-Talk Thread

post #1 of 213
Thread Starter 

Brag here. Brag again. Then brag some more.

 

I know this is a niche gaming thread, and I doubt it'll get many responses, but this is where we brag. And challenge. And humiliate. And celebrate.

 

ZombieFever seems the man to beat, for the most part, but many of us have some good high scores. Here's where we dump 'em.

93 million on Darth Vader

17 million on Star Fighter

 

Who's number one?  Why, that'd be me, bitches.  Oh yeah.

I may not get you on Vader, but I'm damn sure comin' for ya on Star Fighter.

post #4 of 213

Yo FUCK Pinball!  Am I doing this right? 

post #5 of 213

I have a foolproof strategy. I'll be aiming for second place in the tables people play the least. Low hanging fruit is the tastiest, I like to tell myself. 

post #6 of 213
47 on Thor. I think that's pretty good.
post #7 of 213

Are we still going to get a list of people's Steam names?

post #8 of 213

Had a nice run on Infinity Gauntlet last night. Think I ended up getting around 43 mil? Also shot down a Jacob & Scoops scores on Fear Itself and Blade. I'll let you guys keep the highscore on V12 and Tesla though. 

 

Tesla is a decent enough table, I just cant work the magnetic section very well. V12 is a absolutely broken though.

Just wait'll I get my new controller (I broke my last one playing this game) and I don't have to use the keyboard anymore. Then I'll show you!

 

I'll show you ALL!

post #10 of 213

I'm just sitting on mine (games, not controller) until tomorrow.  I figured I would give you all some breathing room.  A head start, if you will.  Some time to feel good about your scores.  So enjoy it....while you still can.

post #11 of 213
Decided to lounge around in bed after waking up this morning and play a little pinball. 104 million on Spiderman. Not even out of my pajamas yet and I'm on my way to some nice scores.

Edit: Nearly hit 6 mil on Tesla.

I hate all you jerks with your fancy pinball skills acting like you're the cat's pajamas. 

post #13 of 213

Does anyone else have the same problem I have?  The response time from when I hit the shoulder buttons on my controller is off by a few split seconds from when the flippers actually move.  It's not way off, but just enough to fuck up my timing.  And does anyone know if there is a way to calibrate that?  I couldn't find anything in the settings.

 

Also everyone should un-friend ZombieFever.

post #14 of 213

MrTyres on the Steam. I am with you Dayln. I am having some adjustment time between when I hit shift (I am playing with my keyboard) and when the flipper flips. Some of the tables have physics packages which oddly accelerate ball speed much faster than what should happen. I am the pinball type to let my ball cradle in the elbow of the flipper (make your jokes funny people) and sometimes the ball comes screaming in and I end up launching it back out. The Clone wars/Empire Strikes Back board, with the dual flippers directly over the main flippers effs me up all the time. I accidently end up deflecting my own shot.

post #15 of 213

I have that ever so slight delay as well.  I've just adjusted to it on my timing.

post #16 of 213

Finally took the #1 spot on RETURN OF THE JEDI.  Hard to find a rhythm on that one.

Just beat ZombieFever on a few of the low key tables. Even if the Panthers lose, my Sunday is already made.

post #18 of 213

Made third on Darth Vader. Considering that I rarely crack 10 million on these things, I'll take that. 

post #19 of 213

I've been using the keyboard ever since I broke a trigger on my controller, and getting decent results, but today I got my replacement controller. Now I just have to figure out which device I'm better on, if either.

 

Also, I keep a lookout for sales on various tables and sets, this'll be even more fun when everyone has a variety of tables and possibly finds one that really clicks for them.

Also, as cocky as we may get in this thread, just look at the ACTUAL high scores and consider yourself humbled.

post #21 of 213

I'm no. 1 in a table bitches. I'm not telling which though. One of you mutants may come and raise the high score by a billion or something.

post #22 of 213
Thread Starter 

I saw your high score last night and gave you a virtual high-five in absentia.

post #23 of 213

I think I might have knocked off the top scores on X-Men and Ghost Rider. Came sssooooo close on Darth Vader. I was at 112 million and lost my last ball to some random bounce down the side drain.

 

Ghost Rider seems like a table that can get some pretty meaty scores once you get going. It's kinda cheap, but you just need to get a ball in the lock and the knock it out. Easy 1 mil jackpots once things are loose.

 

Edit: Seems like it doesn't want to upload my X-Men score. Oh well, was at 28 mil.

177 million on Darth Vader, bitches.

Make sure you have the table set at the default settings. Any adjustment negates publishable high scores. I forgot I had adjusted one of the Star Wars tables before we got this little group going, and I had an amazing score the other night, but couldn't post it because of that.

post #27 of 213
Yeah, I'm sorta worried I changed something accidently. Not really sure how to defeault it if I did.

Anyways, replayed X-men and raised it up to 41. Also hit 43 on Return of the Jedi and got a cool 87 on Fantastic Four.

I'll hit up the library this afternoon and hope that they upload.
post #28 of 213

I'm finally starting to put up some decent scores--I need to play a bit more and keep getting used to the flipper delay. Trying to decide what table pack to buy next.

post #29 of 213

I finally beat someone to move up on a list! Congrats for being the first victim....Jacob Singer! Hurray!

post #30 of 213

Yo starfighters have been assaulted, bitches! 44.7 million! W00T!

Got high scores today on 4 tables, one Star Wars table (with the AT-AT icon, dunno what it's called), Earth Defense, Mars, and Biolab. Earth Defense I did pretty well on (over 60 mil), the rest just barely beat the top scores.

 

Now back to it!

So... are we talking about the Empire Strikes Back board? If so, why don't I see you on the leaderboard?

 

ETA: And now I see. I didn't have that table, but now, thanks to the Singer Foundation, I have it. Thanks Singer!

Screw you guys...i'm gonna play Pinball Arcade. I've got every table.

post #34 of 213

I need to get that EMPIRE STRIKES BACK table.  The ROTJ one is pretty weak.

post #35 of 213

NO ONE IS MIGHTIER AT WORLD WAR HULK!!!

post #36 of 213

Already reclaimed Biolab and Mars. Enjoy your scores for now. By Monday ill be back on top! :)

post #37 of 213

Claimed Boba Fett last night. I'll get my others back soon enough.

 

EDIT: It must not have uploaded your scores yet, 'cause I'm still on top in Biolab and Mars.

 

EDIT 2: Add Pasha to my claimed tables. BOO YA!

Eh, a paltry difference. I'll have one of my lackey's beat that score whilst I sip martinis by the fireside.

post #40 of 213

OMG, do you guys bitch at these games as much as I do? My regular yelling action is right after I finally activate some special thing, and then the ball goes right down the middle.

I no sooner get a mission unlocked on the Empire Strikes Back, get to to stage 2 then the ball goes down the middle. So angry. Then, when I go back I get the mission again, I can't get it done in time. So angry.

Bitching at the table is required at pinball. Is it not?

Seems like nine out of ten times when I'm close to finishing off a mission, the ball suddenly becomes heavier than lead and sinks out of sight wherever it can. Then the Peter Capaldi-level cursing commences.

OK, I'm in a good mood this Sunday morning. I'm gonna give away 2 PinballFX sets today. We need more trash talk in this thread, so some of you guys need more tables to fail at. It'll be first come, first served, at my discretion.

 

So who wants some more tables?

post #45 of 213

C'mon, FREE PINBALL here people. I know It's Sunday morning and most of you are naked and hung-over, but still. Who wants a free set?

post #46 of 213

Go ahead. Surprise me.

post #47 of 213

COOL. What do you have already?

 

EDIT: Stelios gets the classic set.

 

NEXT?

post #48 of 213

I've also given away a couple of single tables to Chewers just for the hell of it, without them even asking.

 

Still, I want to give away a couple more sets. LET'S GO!

post #49 of 213

Really? Nobody wants free stuff? Hrm.

post #50 of 213

Sure. Go ahead and throw me something. I don't really mind which.
