    Tips, tricks, and strategy videos

    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for the sharing of tips, tricks, and strategy videos. I've been making them for the last half a year or so and am almost through the Williams tables.

    I'm trying something new, a shortened format, where the guide will be between 5 - 10 minutes only but where I also link to the full video that I base the guide on (usually my top scoring Top 10 leaderboard game for the table).

    My first one in this format is Fish Tales! The one I should have done a long time ago because it is the free table. The reason why I haven't yet, is because I honestly sucked at it until recently!

    There is not too much to Fish Tales in Pinball FX3 (Classic Arcade) other than Jackpots and Super Jackpots but in this guide I show you some tips, tricks, and my strategy that worked for my 1.1 billion game!


    The full 15 minute video of the game is available if you want to watch it for context.

    Please let me know what you think and how I can improve on it! Any feedback will be much appreciated!

    The Getaway: High Speed II in Pinball FX3 (Classic Arcade) is fast and furious and there is not too much to it but in this shortened tips, tricks, and strategy guide, I explain what worked for me for 1.87 billion high score!


    Even though I posted a pretty good score, I wasted a few easy opportunities such as a missed 200 million jackpot, and losing the ball just before the Supercharger mission. The table also has many glitches, especially involving the Supercharger lane diverter, and delays before the ball launch, all which cost me lots of points. Luckily, none of these glitches are game breaking.

    This is my second strategy guide that I've done using a less than 10 minute format so please let me know if you like it and how I can improve. Any feedback will be much appreciated!

    The full 30 minute video of the game is available if you want to watch it for context.

    In this short form guide for Williams Red and Ted's Road Show, my favorite Pinball FX3 Classic Arcade table, I show and explain my strategy for a Top 10 score. The table has a lot to it, and you have a few different scoring options... if you can stay alive for long enough!

    I based my strategy on the PAPA tutorial and the rule sheet for the real table, but I had to make a few adjustments to accommodate what you can do with Zen's physics. I can certainly score much better on the table... if only I can get better with those advance multiplier shots!

    In this short-from guide for Monster Bash in Pinball FX3 Classic Arcade, I show and explain my strategy and some tricks for getting a big score! The table is not too complicated, but you need to play strategically to get the most out of it.

    It is one of the more accessible tables on Classic Arcade and it is my recommendation for new players that want to learn to play with the realistic Classic Arcade physics.

    Hurry, hurry, hurry for those millions! Hurricane (Classic Arcade) strategy guide

    In this short-from guide for Hurricane in Pinball FX3 Classic Arcade, I show and explain my strategy and some tricks for getting a big score! The table is not too complicated, but there are a few key factors to getting a big score.

    There are three goals to aim for on the table - PALACE Jackpots, Clown Time, and Multiball. Over time my focus between the three shifted. That has mostly to do with figuring out safer shots for hitting the Duck standup targets that you need to lock balls for multiball.

    The awesome thing about the multiball, is that you can score big points, but shots also count towards the other modes that you required to start Clown Time e.g. you can still hit the Cat targets and start the Hurricane or get millions from Cyclone. You can also advance your multipliers. Everything is a bit frantic, but if you have a good multiball, you can achieve a surprising amount.
