You could probably make short work of it by using Red Dragon in cheat mode to find the memory location of the score, use a cheat to give you 120 million, save your state (so you can come right back), then get the jackpot, then save another state and post them here for others to play with.

IIRC Galactic Pinball is playable in RD.

I know how to use edits, but in this case I wanted to make a fresh reply due to the test I just did. I used a different VB and it STILL froze up! Though it froze up on the jackpot once again (this time on 139 mil and made a new screenie! :P) it is definitely a bug in the game!!

you should probably take it back to the store you bought it from and get a refund.

So it's confirmed, good work! (How did you get 139 million that fast? )

Now we should try the same thing on the emulator and look for strange behaviours. Maybe it can be patched?

I guess I'll be the first... first reading this thread, I expected this (image attached).

BTW, it seems that this was already known, or similarly experienced: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galactic_Pinball . It says just breaking 100 mil locks up though. I suck at the game, so I've definitely never had it happen.

It would be pretty funny to email Nintendo about the bug to see what kind of response they give.

"The max score on this level was 99,999,999 as there was no slot for the 100 million digit."

What? o_O


Anyway, I found a semi useful cheat which gives you 6 Mio Bonus whenever you lose a puck. In combination with the infinite pucks cheat this can be used to get high scores quickly.

Here's a 155 Mio save state. Something seems to be wrong, though, since the UFO seems to be not moving anymore. o_O

Actually YOU knew about it eight years ago! I had a conversation about it with you and KR155E on the GameFAQs message board. There was a topic about how few bugs there were in VB games and I mentioned my game locked up when I scored 147,537,500 points. Another poster (can't remember who) said that the game regularly locks up when you break 100,000,000.

At least now we know exactly what causes it, maybe I should update my FAQ...

I guess that OR you are making a joke, OR you did not read all of this thread. It is a bug in the game altogether, doesn't have to do with the VB or the cartridge as I tried it on different VB's with different cartridges.

Yeah, the bug is definitely confirmed, "nice" to see that the emu has the problem as well and others can confirm it too!

Edit:
So if you wouldn't go for the jackpot you could probably get higher scores, nice to know :P
