Gaplus


----------------------------------------------------

ROMSet: gaplus

----------------------------------------------------

Default Settings:
Lives: 3
Difficulty: 0 - Standard
Round Advance: Off
Bonus Life: 30K, 70K and every 70K
Service Mode: Off

----------------------------------------------------

51mmz0rz won the last round, but hasn't logged on in 5 days, so 2nd place winner jasonbar has requested the 3rd place winner (me) select the next game, since he chose the last one. I've chosen one of my favorites (and one of the 2 arcade cabs I own), Gaplus. It's the sequel to Galaga, and I like to describe it as Galaga on crack ;D It's also known as Galaga 3 (basically a ROM swap to change the title screen). I chose the default settings, and only listed the ones that should effect gameplay.

----------------------------------------------------

- One credit only!

- No continues or adding credits!

- No MAME cheats!

- Last day is Saturday October 8 (11:59:59pm Pacific Daylight Time), 2011.
 
- High score wins.

- No savestates, savestate practices, etc. during the round.

- MAME INP recordings are encouraged but optional.

- A screenshot is required to enter a score (press F12 to save screenshot showing your final score) or take a photo of the game screen.

- If you're a MARP competitor on this title, keep in mind this is just a friendly competition among forum members, so maybe you shouldn't enter. However, if you're a forum member and this is a game you're good at and nobody knows about it, this is your time to shine!

- Even if you don't have a competitive score or if you don't *think* that you have a competitive score, please post it anyway to keep the thread fun & to give everybody a good sense of score ranges.

- Please make sure your scores are from games that take place during the competition period (no posting your best score from last year, etc.).

- Use of autofire or other non-standard hacks within MAME or your PC's OS are not allowed.  No program or other person or entity of any sort may manipulate your controls during your game.  Coaching & back-seat driving is fine as long as the party doesn't directly influence the game or controls.

- If you can beat any of the high scores from the previous competitions, you can submit your score to the BYOAC High Game Scoreboard.

Best of luck!

Excelsior!  Capital selection!

Gaplus was on my short list of games for the competition, but it gets so frantic & the games can last pretty long, so I didn't feel like posting it yet, as I'll get too worked up over it... :)

I used to own the board & made an adapter for it for my JAMMA cabinet way back when.  Awesome game!

Thanks,
-Jason

I got real good at Gaplus when I found a one in a bulk lot board buy. But that was over 10 years ago. I'd need to brush up...

Is this working for you?



I think you linked the page that shows the image, not the actual image itself.

Is this a real cab? If so, looks like you got one of the early ROMsets :) (which is fine I guess) Mine only has 3 initials and the Parsec you reached.

Try and keep at least 2, preferably 3 or more captured bugs into the bonus stage. There's alot of points to be had on the bonus stages, if you max out the hits (165). You get extra bonuses if you can at least spell out the word. During the regular stages, every so often, a queen Gaplus will come out from the top right with a piece of a ship. If you can get all 3 pieces, you get an extra ship.

That is  my MAME cab. I was using the "rev b" romset. It must be the other one you guys are using.

Just checked the rom dir....rev d is named "gaplus". My frontend doesn't display that info.

I have no clue what rev my board is. I'd have to drag it out and power it up (providing it still works) to see.

Yeah, I chose the parent set, which is rev d "gaplus". I think rev b is "gapluso" unless they've changed it in recent versions (that's what they are on the version I typically use, wolfmame106). I don't know which version my cab has, but it has the high score table like rev d. There's a trick I know that works in MAME on rev b and d, but doesn't work in my cab. I should dump my board and see if there's any ROM"s different ;)

48,900. Not even close.  But my game improved drastically when I realized I could move up/down.   :banghead:

This is and Galaga '88 are close contenders in preference of the series. Here's a starter.

Nice score! I haven't submitted one yet, but I'll try and get one in, although you guys probably won't be happy ;D I should use my MAME cab so I can use an 8-way rather than a keyboard.

My MAME high on a keyboard is 337K :P It won't count for this, since it was done 3 years ago (on a different ROM at a harder setting)

Hyperspace ship?

And how would a keyboard help??


Also, I have a new score. Unfortunately not the highest, but at least my highest. I got to parsec 14 on my first ship (and had already gotten an extra ship in parts). Then I lost a ship or two (I think it only shows four bottom-left at a time), and was pretty set up at the next bonus stage - except I hadn't been there before, and they flew really weird, and so I got ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- for bonus - and then it was down hill from there.

I mean, what real strategy is there after parsec 4?  Just shoot and duck, far as I can see.

You mean the purple ship?  (I'm wondering why no one has asked why I have it? Maybe they've read the MAME history.)

If it's purple, you're using too much grip.   ;D

The hypership was the trick I mentioned ;) It won't work on my cab or on a local Galaga 3 cab, although there are other ways of triggering it. I've done it by accident and don't know how I did it, but I know how to do it in MAME.

Last day, will jasonbar prevail? I haven't had a chance to sit down and play, and I'm heading out for the day, but I'll try and put one in tonight, even though if I win, 2nd place still gets next pick...gotta have bragging rights ;D

I didn't get much better than the crappy score I posted above. Didn't realise that the deadline was today, might try and squeeze a few in later.

I tried once more, just before time, but while I bested my score (and within only 16 parsecs), I only got 244k.
