Out of all of the tables on Pinball Dreams, this is the high score I'm most happy with. It's strange really, as it's my least favourite table in the game. I just had one cracking game where I tripled my best score.

The game stopped rewarding me 2 million every time I hit the middle ramp after a while, even though 2 million was lit. Does anyone know why? I would have got a really massive score had it not.

I think it's an emulation bug. Never seen this happening

It happened a few times while playing today, so it wasn't isolated to this one game. Annoying, as I planned to milk that ramp for all it was worth. cheeky

Well done! Awesome score and play with the 1st ball (especially if I think how much I'm f**ked up with this table) yes

I don't think that this an emulation bug. I've seen that on original Amiga-times too. I think after you activate a new carrier (after you had the 2 mio-carrier) you start again with post carrier and climbing up the ladder there. Only the yellow lights for the carriers aren't changing anymore (stays always on the highest one). You better shouldn't activate any carrier anymore after you climb to the highest ;-)

Yeah, I thought that too, but it seems to remain at 2 million sometimes even when I have gone back to a Mail Wagon, while other times it doesn't. It's inconsistent, which makes me think it's a bug in either the original game or the emulation of it.

I could be wrong of course.

I was watching the whole gameplay-video. Sometimes it isn't easy to realize from where the points are counting. You have some timestamps for that "2 millions sometimes"-moments to watch again and clarify.

It's inconsistent, which makes me think it's a bug in either the original game or the emulation of it.

AFAIK I had the original game in the good old times, but I could be wrong of course. wink
