If you have lives remaining after finishing any chance time level, one will be taken away. If you finish a chance time level with no lives, it will roll back and give you 255 lives (I assume, 8 bit counter..?). (Does the PCB work differently? It would make sense that since the level is called "Chance Time," that after you complete it, it would GIVE you an extra life, not take away one.)

I remember someone mentioning that another person had "discovered" this same bug during (or just after) the Funspot tournament.

Seems like it would happen fairly regularly...

Well phooey.

The submit pages come up fine, but apparently the scripts that handle the incoming files aren't working. I tried several times and nothing got through.

I'll accept submissions which are good for first place as attachments here, or emailed to Image. (I will post here.)

Tuesday's bonus points to Sampras@AIVA.

Since it doesn't look like MARP is stabilizing, those with recordings scoring over 25,000 who wish to be eligible for the random prize may post their submissions here or email to Image by the normal deadline.

Results:

1st: MarcoMarocco@AIVA (71,880)

3rd: sikraiken (51,880)


Marco takes first and 2 bonus points for 12 total.

Sampras takes second and 2 bonus for 9 total.

sikraiken takes third and 2 bonus for 7 total

Not many entries this week, probably because MARP hasn't been taking submissions, but some very strong play.



Eligible for the random prize:

MarcoMarocco@AIVA (1-18)
Sampras@AIVA (19-36)
sikraiken (37-54)

55 and 56 are unassigned.


Watch at 0300 hours GMT for the numbers drawn here:

http://www.txlottery.org/online/winmegamillion.cfm

which will determine the winner. The first ball drawn under 55 will be the winning number.
