  1. Playboy Pinball (1976) - Oh Well :(

    Too bad I do not own recording equipment...I hit 1.947M on "Playboy" pinball (1976) at ACAM this past week. This was the version where extra balls were allowed. Would have been a new WR. I captured the final score via digital camera pic but alas no witnesses. Rats :(

    Alas, many more scores are going to get missed in this same manner: no referee option anymore. Congrats on the new PB. :)

    I don't know how well this would translate to an arcade setting but here's my low-tech solution to the filming problem (from back in 2012). There's a bit near the end which shows the phone mounted but this could easily be clamped down to many surfaces:



    I still use this configuration for recording (mainly for Twitch broadcasts) but the TV & monitor on my desk have been replaced and the phone replaced twice. ;)

    P.S. Very creaky old chair at the time and a few too many "errm"s used in the commentary!
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...

    Robert, I definitely know how you feel. I didn't have a camcorder at the time I set my PB on The Walking Dead a few months ago. I swear I played that one game for almost an hour! I managed 665,251,050 which is probably within the top 5 all-time scores in the world. I think the highest score known to the game is like 1.885B by Keith Elwin. This guy's not human and in a league of his own! :)
