    Yeah, I've seen my high score cleared twice now, along with those of another couple people on my friends list. My local high scores are intact.

    Surely it depends on how general/specific the theme is. I think the idea of a "racing" theme is almost as general as that of a "superhero" theme. You can have F1 racing, rally racing, foot...

    Huh, I think I've only ever got the same colour when exploding the pinball on the fireball/iceball.

    I've now beaten Wiz. mode! On my first ball, natch, with a 1x multiplier.

    Some of my initial impressions:

    - too easy to keep the game going on a long time (even taking into account comments that we should have variety of difficulties). The difficulties of the missions...

    Although I prefer the idea of the buttons in principle because they are on/off rather than analogue, I use the triggers because I find them to be more comfortable and quieter.

    I think my average is now between 100M and 200M, with quite a few < 100M, if it makes you feel any better. Also keep in mind that scoring is non-linear, so in some cases even small improvements in...

    The notable thing about Vectrex is that it was based on vector graphics rather than raster graphics -- so, no "background pixels", but rather line segments in arbitrary directions; and I believe...

    Ah, the Vectrex, my friend had one of those, I recall the game backgrounds were printed on clear plastic sheets you just stuck on the screen :)

    Are you assuming that when you save/exit to the main table selection screen, it actually writes your saved game to disc?

    It might, but I don't assume that, which is why I always exit with the...

    I don't work for Zen, but I suspect when you press the blue in-game exit button, it runs a "save pending autosaves and exit to console" command; whereas exit via the XBOX button "rudely interrupts"...

    When you "exited to XBOX panels", did you do so with the in-game button (blue button, at bottom right of table selection screen), or did you use the XBOX button?

    I'm not sure if it makes a...
