Stern TMNT Rulesheet (Early WIP)

Pizza parlor mb has a lot of value in it as long as you bring the octopus in it with a couple of extra balls. Get your 2x lit and just rip the spinner. Easy 10 million right there. The jackpots are quite small on their own.

I really like fried octopus, so this gives me even more of a reason to go for it. :stuck_out_tongue:

Seriously though, seems like Pizza Frenzy can lead to pretty big scoring as long as you keep it going.

Is there any way to score big in episodes? It seems pretty weak to just have to hit a handful of shots and be done. There should be a way to keep an episode going or increase the value of shots… The scoring is really strange. I got 14mil for mashing a button and have plenty of games under 14m with multiple multiballs and episodes.

How’d you get 14 million for mashing a button? I know that pizza party scores can be kinda ridiculous but that seems out of balance with the rest of the game.

I do know that on most if not all episodes, when your ready for your final shot to finish at a turtle shot, some shots will still be lit for the mode but I”m not sure if the points are worth it yet. The 2nd and 3rd Pizza eating contest. can be very valuable especially if you have 2x Playfield and or completing level 3 Mikey for 2x pizza eating contest. But yeah I”ve had a many games under 14 million so it is kind of odd scoring.

It was the second contest… not sure what else was running. I need to go back and look at my stream replay. That happened to be my best game, 82mil.

A couple other things that are really odd are:

Middle ramp not being worth anything when its not lit. Feels really wrong to hit that ramp and sometimes hit it more than once in a combo and score nothing. That is not a random shot, there should be some sort of reward for hitting it always. At the minimum allow for it to be a combo award outside of the Krang combo.

The other thing is how low scoring the Multiballs are at their base… I know with frenzy and 2x things can be good, but I have had some basic MB’s that I played for a long time scoring Jackpot after jackpot and it feels great… I come out of the MB all excited that I just blew up the game and pumped with adrenaline only to see I have scored jack shit… It feels wrong.

Play as Mikey and earn 2x pizza eating and have 2x scoring going? Only way I can think to do it.

Had I noticed it started and got my usual 2-3 seconds I think that would have been significantly higher scoring.

Updated the document to include new info as of 1.10. Props to the coders for reducing Pizza Eating Contest scoring, I agree that it really needed some balancing.

Short feedback on the Sounds, there is plenty of clipping on FX sounds and Splinters call outs. Those seem to have too much bass frequencies, leading to clipping (distortion) especially when played together with FX sounds. So better equalizing is really needed here.

Thank You

You have full control of the equalizing of the sounds in the settings. Not sure if that will help you though.

Are you talking about the speech/music attenuation? This won’t fix the problem. I have a backbround in mixing, and i hear its clipping in some situations - or my speakers are broken from factory.

No I’m speaking to the equalizer in the settings.

Utilities then set audio levels, then select audio filter, then change high/low shelf (def) to 10 band EQ.

My background is in accounting, I don’t know what clipping is haha, just making sure you were aware of these settings.

Those settings are unfortunately only adjusting the overall frequencies. The sound effects themselves have to be mixed properly beforheand.
Thanks anyway, this 10 band EQ could come in handy sometime, depending on the room and subwoofer I use.

EDIT:
I reconnected all my cables and this solved the problem, i guess it was a lose connection!

thank you

I’d suggest that once you’ve upgraded your initial turtle to LV 4 your perks are locked in and you then change turtle to train them up to LV 4 as well, once all 4 turtles are fully trained you get some kind of mini wizard mode.

That would then give you an added incentive to actually complete training, as the machine I have played EVERY SINGLE SHOT under the flipper bounces out, unless you lower the flipper to trap it - the timing of which needs to be perfect.

I simply ignored training after having it bounce out so often. Only managed 4 x 1 player games (3 scores in the 40mils, and one of 12).

There’s some potentially really good points to be had in Ninja Pizza MB if you bring in Octopus for Pizza Frenzy, then basically just nail the spinner all day. :slightly_smiling_face:

I did some testing with the glass off (Standard Gameplay Mode).

You get 1 Extra Ball by starting your second episode.
You get 1 Extra Ball by shooting one of the two Pizza Slice targets 14 times.

The setting “Auto” for Extra Balls seems not to be dynamic as seen on other games (thank you). So in total you can only get two Extra Balls, please let me know if you find more!

Pizza Slice rewards:

  • 7 pieces = Pizza eating contest
  • 7 pieces = Extraball
  • 7 pieces = Pizza eating contest
  • 7 pieces = Pizza eating contest
  • 7 pieces = Pizza eating contest
    …and so on…

Slices can only collected between modes, not during 123, weapon, april, training, team up or turtle power mb. Slices collected during Pizza Multiball or Eating contest will not add up for the slice rewards but you will see it displayed on the screen.

This was suggested 22 days ago :rofl::rofl:. Don’t forget the 2X. Think I had one up to 86k a switch with the 2X. It’s worth it to change the toppings on ball one or two to get the octopus.
