Fabulous selection.

I'm on old 115u2. They've updated the ROM names since my rev. I've got a JP ver & an international ver. I played international last night. Is that the correct version associated with this comp's ROM file?

If so, blue guy: 4,024,240; then green guy: 5,629,430; then red guy: not good enough for a hi.

-J

PS: did, better w/ the blue guy & the shieldy instead of zappier option (the option on the right): 8,091,970

I'm rubbish at this game, but I love it.

EDIT: I wouldn't normally post one with such an incremental improvement, but I'm on the board.

6,230,220. Died on the giant ship that protects the 3rd boss. Watched a vid on youtube, by the time he reached the 3rd boss, the guy had about 35 million points.

I have watched multiple YouTube videos, read hardcoregaming.com for scoring help, and just finished a run of near 20 games.

Sweet improvement...[emoji38]
