Re: jerky - cchasm1 - 507,250

Thanks for the heads up.

Recorded using exact same batch file that my other score for this title used (623k). Still plays back fine on my end.

Anyone else having issues?

Re: mhavocrv

Sorry for any confusion. You need the latest version 1.8 roms from Jess Askey's site which are different than what you find elsewhere on the nets for mhavocrv: http://gamearchive.askey.org/Video_Games/Manufacturers/Atari/major_havoc.html The trick is that those are just the changes to turn regular M...

Re: mhavoc and it's clones

I seem to have picked up the Major Havoc torch here many years after this thread, but I wanted to chime in on a few points. You get way more points using the Aqua warp to get to Level 13 than playing 1-12+. I think you end up with a hundred thousand points less or more playing the early levels so mo...

Re: Time to clean up the Robotron scores?

Exactly. Discussion (link in the special rules box) at the origin of the special rule is from 2005, SLA's input is from 2002. I'm quoting this from TJT : "After brief postal exchange with DBH and BBH, we decided that: Robotron.zip should be played at diff=10, that should make the game slightly easi...

Time to clean up the Robotron scores?

Howdy. Could someone please clean up the Robotron scoreboard when they get a chance? (Solid Blue romset). I finally started scoring over a million points on Difficulty 10 but I am not sure where I stand because some of the scores here don't seem to follow the special rules. http://replay.marpirc.net...

Re: This is why the MAME emulation of Kangaroo is inaccurate

I don't know if anybody has attempted to see if Kangeroo also used the same MCU code, although it does indicate that this type of chip is a valid decapping target, or at least was for the guy who did it, I'm less sure about the current people doing it for us. One of the current guys doing decaps fo...

Re: This is why the MAME emulation of Kangaroo is inaccurate

Perhaps a bug report ought to be filed at MAMETesters... The MB8841 MCU is emulated by MAME, but without the code dumped (which is likely not to be easily possible), you just have to simulate what it does. I am going to contact them and share my findings. Its hard to simulate a custom randomizer co...

I wanted to share this post I made on Twin Galaxies regarding the obvious differences between how Kangaroo plays on a legit arcade machine versus the current MAME romsets (TG takes days to put your posts up so I don't have a link for ya yet but you can find it at the end of the "Undisputed Champions...

Re: zlk's 2014 bounties

Thank you for the bounty inspiration! I haven't done much gaming outside of Zelda, Super Mario and Rayman for almost 20 years (not a big fan of fighters, 1st person shooters, nor Hollywood production style gaming). But, no matter how many years go by, I am always drawn back to the arcade classics. L...

Re: zlk's 2014 bounties

It's possible to "edit" your previous score to a lower score, then submit a higher one. Sometimes it's necessary to edit more than one "previous score", well, just press "(edit)" in the side of your current score and you will understand what it means. Thanks! That did the trick and here's the link ...

(edited) Hello all and good bounty news: I appear to have made it to the end of Atari's Toobin' on 1 credit again today (pinch me?). I have been pushing hard to figure out this amazing Atari classic, and this weekend I broke through to the end twice! (1) Sat 4/12/14 Wolfmameplus-104 (GUI) finish @ N...
