Does anyone know the sequence of awards given on the right ramp on Robocop? It seems to me like you can get many of the awards that are given in the mystery award hole on the right saucer shot.
I'm guessing the the sequence is something like this:
Every Jump base value: 100k (can be doubled)
2 Jumps in a row: Double Scoring starts
2 or 3 Jumps in a row: Special temporarily lit on right ramp. Can be worth 1m if set to point award (can be doubled with 2x scoring)
3 or 4 Jumps in a row: Extra Ball lit (on captive ball)
X Jumps in a row: ED-209
X Jumps in a row: Everything Lit (Lights ED-209 as well as ???)
Jumpmaster bonus: 500k for setting jump record.
There's footage in Pinburgh 2014 where Damien hits 4 Sweet Jumps in a row and his score jumps up 2.2m on the last shot. He has double scoring running and collects the special + the base jump value of 100k. Both of these values are doubled. Of course, this could be incorrect since the game display lags so much.
A friend of mine believes the only "correct" strategy is to ignore the ramp unless it's lit for locks and shoot the spinner. But this friend of mine has never rolled the game. I did once on this beautiful PAPA 19 ticket with what I believe was 13 sweet jumps. My memory is fuzzy but I remember crushing the ramp over and over again, and I don't remember eeking out ~200k per spinner shot over and over again.
Anyone who understands this game better than I do want to shed some light on the ramp scoring/award sequence?
