I didn't see it that way at all and wasn't offended at all. You were giving the impression the game is very easy....which versus many other games perhaps it is to a degree cuz for most levels once you figure out a nice pattern to complete it, then it's fairly trivial to do it in future games.Abbe wrote:Sorry if I offended you. It was not my meaning. I didn't compare my score to yours in any way.
I know...only Novice is....and he is out to get everyone else in the world it seems.Not everyone is out to get you, you know.
I vaguely remember the game freezing on me a couple times there...but figured it was where I screwed up....not some bug from doing something specific you might repeat...but if you found that...great. Just avoid doing whatever makes it freeze. heheMy problem is that if I manage to pull it off correctly, the game hangs at the same spot every time. Mame is still working, but the game freezes up. Did this happen to you too?
Cuz the WCC, Deca etc. type events are only for PC players only as they require using a pc-mame like tgmame or wolfmame etc.Why not join the WCC, Rick, and defend your first place. It's a good oppurtunity to be the first to finish the game too.
I am aware that you are using macmame and that you get a performance hit when running pc-mame under VPC. But all of the games in WCC, so far at least, hasn't been very demanding when it comes to processor speed. Even I can run them at 100% on my crappy home computer, even though I had to use frameskip 9 on mutantf, and turn off sound on some games.LN2 wrote:Cuz the WCC, Deca etc. type events are only for PC players only as they require using a pc-mame like tgmame or wolfmame etc.Abbe wrote:Why not join the WCC, Rick, and defend your first place.

having patterns to get through the last few boards in Pushman wasn't the issue for me. It was the timing of that one move through what I called the gauntlet. i'm sure you know the spot. There is only 1 way through it. Maybe you have it where you time it based on a visual cue I hadn't noticed..which makes timing it easier.Abbe wrote:If you watch my game you have a pattern that isn't very hard to do. The only difficult spot is the one in the upper left corner.
That's not bad...what was your score at that hard spot in 5-4? I'm not sure I had as much as you cuz I don't remember the last couple of levels after 5-4 resulting in that much score....so you might be more optimized on the earlier levels than you think you are.The score is 337 900.
Fucked game. Screen freeze on 5-2 and I must begin whole game from stage 1-1.Abbe wrote:
Talking about level 5, I got a pattern for 5-2, the second screen with invisible walls. My problem is that if I manage to pull it off correctly, the game hangs at the same spot every time. Mame is still working, but the game freezes up. Did this happen to you too?
My suggestion:destructor wrote:Tomorrow last day round 5. Anybody can't submit inp because ZTNet is crash. Where send inps? Here to forum? Maybe wait to repair ZTNet? if yes then what with rule 24h? What in this situation Phil?
What if ZTNet is not up again by next week?destructor wrote:Extra week is for long to one game. Play on one game by two weeks isn't good idea. I'm very tired. What if ZTNet will crash again in next week?
Send here is probably one good idea.
But Phil is coordinator and his word is important
Ha! So he does have "amazing knowledge", and Novice isn't the only one "WHO KNOWS IT"!mahlemuit wrote:Yes, this means that Rick was right for once
