  • Leaderboard observation and request

    I noticed something today while taking a number one on Jurassic Park Mayhem. Normally when you pause the game it will tell you the next target score. Well once I took over #1 it should say something like you have the highest score now try to improve it or something like that. However when I was sure I was number one then paused the game my next target score was 4 plus billion.

    Now I know being on the Switch I can't see PS4 scores so I'm going to assume that the game was telling me there is a score of 4 billion on the PS4. I don't even know if that's number one over on the PS4 or I'm wrong. If this is true then I can still compete with the high scores on the PS4 even though I can't see the scores.

    Could a PS4 member varify this for me and let me know at the very least what the top 5 scores are? Hoping I found a bit of a way to see if my scores and others are truly number one.

    The current high score is 8 billion with 2nd place at 4 billion during normal play and 2 billion during classic mode.

    Seems weird to me that the system would have access to the high scores on a competitors leaderboard, if indeed that is what you are looking at, yet not display that information directly.

      I have wondered where these scores are from as when I have beat the top scores on some tables then looked at the pause menu, sometimes it will show my current score or a higher one. I am on Xbox One and have show all scores set to on.

        Thanks! I suspected that was the case. Thought it was odd that I still had a score to chase. So even though I can't see the scores I know I'm not truly number one now. Got a lot of work to do. The problem is if I do over take a score the only way I could ever know if I keep it is to get a higher score. I guess I'll just be happy for #1 on my boards for now.

        Another observation I made was in the tournaments. If you look on the main screen where you select a tournament you will see the total number of players but if you select the tournament the number changes taking out the other scores you can't see.

        So now my question to Zen is if I win a tournament on my boards yet I'm actually only in 4th place is that where I end up even though I show I won? That would be pretty unfair to me not seeing all the scores I need to beat if that was the case.

          I usually goto http://www.pinballfx.com and select the tournaments tab. From there it will display all current scores for active tournaments and you can view past top tens.

            He could just goto that link................or, he could just allow me to post, "Unaltered, factual and true, non photoshopped" images directly from the Playstation network and not just a product of my warped sense of humor.

              LOL. Shame I can't post mine because I don't need photoshop. Not quite a zillion though.

                    I'm sitting here now looking at one of your scores you just took out of mine and wondering if I want to try and take it back lol. The 5 minute Mayhem one if you were wondering.

                      I got like 3 or so #1's anymore and a dozen in top 5...............Knock yourself out bro. If I get in the mood I'll try and overtake it. Too hard to maintain the top places anymore.

                        Go for it. That's what scores are for, good competition! �� What is your gamer tag or just a hint?

                          I agree with that statement. I'm happy with the top 5 but if I believe I can be #1 I will try for it. Right now at least on my side of the Leaderboards including challenges I have about 8 or 9. I'm sure that's far less if any on the PS4 side. I'm just happy I have more scores to compete with as when I had only the Wii U I was #1 on over half the tables at one point.
