Round 2 of 5
The Astyanax
by Jaleco, 1989
ROMsets needed: astyanax
Genre: Platform / Fighter Scrolling


(I had again a small delay - apologies - getting busy with stuff to check!) #-o

GOAL: Complete first 4 Stages.

Parameter to count for tournament score: Total number of frames.
The first frame is always determined by the first frame in which you see the main character appear, like in the screenshot below.

Image

The final frame is determined by the exact moment in which
>> you get score for the defeated boss, if you finish stage 1 or 2 or 3
>> you see the screen STAGE 5 if you finish stage 4, which is boss-less and only aim is to exit alive.
When you submit your recording, you are not obliged to give a precise count of frames - that's my job :D I will have to do it anyway. You can give an approximate total. To view the frame count in MAME, press F11.

Due to troubles with internet signal with wi-fi at home, I will be able to connect only through smartphone so...
I don't say i can't do things but until we don't solve that, verifying and updating may be slower, please have patience :wink:

I've seen some scores I need to check - in less than 24 hours I'll surely be back to confirm, my internet connection is a little unstable - but still works at times :wink:

I tried to check the remaining recordings as soon as I could reach a PC. I'm sorry dude but the average speed of your recording is said to be ~92%, and in fact I noticed some low peaks during the playback. I'm especially more sorry because the week is almost over. Rules I defined were to accept avg. speed of min. 95%.

If you have troubles at maintaining 100% speed...
:arrow: try to increase the frameskip (F9 when emulator is open, or change through settings if you use an interface.
-fs 3
if you use the command line. "3" is a random number given for example... you can increase that but it is also true that high frameskip doesn't make easy to play with precision.)
:arrow: try to play with DirectDraw instead of Direct3D (can be decided through settings, or
-video ddraw
for command line. Higher perfomance, lower output quality)
:arrow: in extremis, I can let you (and only you, for this game only) play with WolfMAME 0.106. I don't see any change from that version worth of notice for this game.

If you notice slow speed in next games (if this caused you troubles, I'm pretty sure there will be another one later), as soon as you notice it please alert me :wink:
