Omega Race (Set 1)




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

ROMSet: omegrace.zip

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

Default Settings:
1st Bonus Life 100k
2nd & 3rd Bonus Life 750k 1500K

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

- One credit only!

- No continues or adding credits!

- No MAME cheats!

- Last day is Wednesday November 30 (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!
Cheers Eric

I actually just got home from work and was going to follow opt2not's directions and try to create this thread, but thank you for taking the time to do it. And thanks opt2not for the instructions. I appreciate the help from both of you.

81,700 after a couple of tries.  I'll post a pic if that's competitive.

Definitely a lot of strategy in this game--go for easy points or take risks for bigger points...

Hey, listen to this music.  It's nearly a rip-off of the Star Wars theme, modified just a bit!  Sneaky!

Had a single quick go (I'm coding at the minute) but I got 31750, will need to fire up my cab with a spinner on it this weekend, although its vertical so that'll be a pain.

I have Marquees turned on on my cab.

Oddly, this is a horizontal game that uses a vertical marquee, and my cab's monitor is horizontal.

---> smaaaaalll playscreen.  I can barely read the scores.  Might have to turn off the marquee on this game...

Just wondering (as this is a game I may compete in), on my control panel, I use the trackball for this game as I don't have a spinner.  Would that be a violation of the nature of the contest?

No. (You think I use buttons on Asteroids and such?)

Ahh. It's only vertical seeming because it's coupled with the bezel.

Now I remember why I hated this game back in the day, and probably why it didn't last: the AI sharpshooting is too good.

Yeah, it can be somewhat aggravating. Best I've gotten so far is about 64,000.. maddening!

OK, here's my first try, 96,600...so close to the extra ship ;) I used the mouse for input, but I may need to turn the sensitivity down...it spins WAY too fast.

Turned the sensitivity down a tiny bit and it made a huge difference. After a couple practice games, got 154,550.

edit: I guess I should show the high score table, so you know it was done on 1 credit...I did save a couple screenshots, so here's the table :) Anyone else playing? Kinda quiet here ;)

The only machines I've got to play this on are vertical 15Khz monitors so it's practically impossible to see so I will officially give up for this game.

How long do these competitions go for?
Does it matter if you have a cab or if your just running it on your pc with your keyboard?

THanks!!!!

The time details are in the first post

Last day is Wednesday November 30 (11:59:59pm Pacific Daylight Time), 2011.

It doesn't matter what you play on as long as the game is the same and the difficulty settings are what are stated (usually the defaults).

Damn. I thought I remembered the 29th, but was hoping for the 27th. This is one of those Twilight Zone comps, where it just keeps going.....

Yeah, was surprised nobody else participated...I always thought Omega Race was a really fun game, even had a pretty good port of it on the Vic 20 (except you used a joystick). I'll try and get new thread up either tonight or in the morning. I've got a couple ideas...expect it to be in the classic era though ;D

I was out of town for 8 days.  I'm back & ready for the next competition.  To be fair & honest, here's a screen grab of my weak 2nd-place effort.  :]

Thanks,
