Game - Shock Troopers (shocktro)
Qualifying Score - 300,000
Duration of Round - August 20th 2006 00:00 GMT - August 29th 2006 23:59 GMT
This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who knows me at all. :) I've been wanting to use Shock Troopers in a tournament for FOREVER, but always ended up seeing it get voted down in the regular MARP tournaments. Finally I'm free to abuse my power and force it into a tournament! But instead of saving it for the finals or something like that, it's the qualifier instead so everyone can enjoy it.
To officially qualify for K5, all you have to do is beat the game's default high score of 300,000. That might sound like a relatively high score, but it's really not. After a play or two, anyone can beat that score within one minute or so. Of course, players are still encouraged to try their hardest and go for the highest score possible!
If you're looking for gameplay info and tips, try my old webpage, which hasn't been updated in years but still has a decent amount of information. You can also hop onto #marp and ask me anything, if I'm around at the time then I'll gladly chat with anyone about my favorite game :D
NOTE: in wolf106 the game tends to give an error message when exiting after playing back a recording. This seems to be "normal" and playback isn't affected at all, so it does still work. You're free to use wolf101 instead if you're scared of having the error message screw something up, although it shouldn't. Also, since this is a Neo-Geo game, make sure you're playing on the default bios and that you don't have any memcard.000 files in your memcard directory (to be on the safe side, delete your memcard directory or make a read-protected empty file called "memcard" to keep it from coming back). Presence of a memcard.000 file could cause playback problems for those trying to play it back without the file.
NOTE #2: Partly due to my laziness, we don't have any dedicated K5 entries in the MARP database yet. Whoops. For the time being, just upload your recordings to "shocktro". If you already have a recording on MARP with a higher score that you don't want to delete, we'll permit uploads as attachments in this thread.
