TimeTrial 2013 - R1 - Out Zone (1 loop) [outzone]

Image Image

Image


Here we are with the first game of the TimeTrial 2013, Out Zone, a great vertical shooter from Toaplan, year 1990.

This game has infinite loops, and is quite short, so it's ideal for our needs. It's also the main reason for having switched to WolfMAME150: its romset has been reorganized. On Wolf149 I found a rather difficult game under default settings, even first enemies took two bullets to die, and they fired quite a lot. From my memory, that difficulty was in loop2+, in fact I initially thought to let you play a clone. But with new WolfMAME150 the parent romset has changed, and the old parent was indicated as harder. Actual parent romset is at an adequate difficulty under normal/default settings.
Commands are simple: joystick 8-way, button1 shoot, button2 bomb.

Ok, after some technical notes let's talk a litte bit about this nice game, when you'll get the purple energy ball you'll really discover how funny it can be. Until you'll find the flame item exactly on your path. That won't be that funny, but don't worry, it's very powerful too ;) .
Usually this game is played for score with many bombs in stock, to get the 5K bonuses, but in this tournament you will bomb-walk quite often, I guess.

Remember: Wolfmame 150 and default settings. The requirement in this tournament is the first loop, play it as fast as you can, because your goal is to complete the first loop in the less time possible.


Round Duration: Sunday October 27th, 00:00:00 GMT - Saturday November 2nd, 23:59:59 GMT
TIME REMAINING


Here are some useful links, the correct Wolfmame to use and the batch files I promised to the players that aren't familiar with command-line MAME.
This is a vertical screen game, and some people (like me) usually turn their laptop on its side to play fullscreen. If you are going to do this, take the second batch pack.
Wolfmame 150 - Batch files for this game (horizontal screen), (vertical screen)
There are 3 batch files inside each zip:
Play.bat (normal play without recording, you can train with pause or savestates)
Record.bat (to record a new inp, keeps backup of the previous recording)
Replay.bat (to see the last recorded inp)


Good luck to everyone participating, and now run!

Important rule clarification, just in case I haven't been clear in the rules:
it' not mandatory to complete the requirement (also called somewere 'goal') of the turn to participate. In other words, you don't necessarily have to finish the first loop to send your INP: for example, if you reach stage 5 only, you can still upload your progress, and with the rule explained in the other topic you'll enter the TT scoreboard with the time of stage4.


Another thing (thanks TRB for the suggestion): Please use in the description the word TT2013 instead of TT13 I suggested you yesterday, because in the future it could generate confusion in board searches with Tournament T13.

Yes, it's correct, and in the scoreboard now, just a little trim in the framecount.

Thanks for the informations you guys are adding to your submissions, this speeds up my work, carry on.

Hi.

Here is one of my first games recorded today since a long time but it's clear that this version has the same settings in comparison with the parent rom i played with wolfmame in... 2004 !! Almost 10 years ago :mrgreen:

Stage 2 cleared.

I don't know if i will have time to play seriously so i play at least for fun :-)

Good luck to everyone.

Yea it's true, the harder version seems to be appeared in MAME105 as brand new parent romset, now renamed in outzoneh.
I've opened a new topic to discuss this rename thing, My opinion is that many old recordings should be moved to different romsets

TT2013 - St5ok = 31992 (32428-436)

PS.: I'm counting the 1st frame that you get the score for beating the boss. And starts when the life meter appears on the screen.

Hey, it seems the forum time is 0h30 different than my real time.
I'm GMT-3, but DST is in effect now, so I am with "GMT-2".
It's 10:49PM here, but this post is stamped 11:19PM (I'm logged in), so forum is showing 30 minutes in advance of my real time. Please confirm if it's happening with other players too.
It may be confused with the deadline if submitted here in the forum.

Edit: and comparing forum time with this site ( http://24timezones.com/ ), forum is 31 or 32 minutes in advance.
