ALL NEW BYOAC High Score Competition! Now playing: Burgertime
« on: January 02, 2018, 10:50:00 pm »


Hey everyone, we are starting again with a clean slate! All that was old is new again, all games are fair...game.  So if you are a long time veteran, or you just got your shiny new 4player cab all done, complete with angled joysticks, and every control known to man, all i can say is - https://youtu.be/sUU5rMgSj_I?t=36s


The difference between this year's contest and previous years, is that there will not be an ongoing points series, rather stand-alone two week contests.

We will stick to the same general rules, which are:
- One credit, no continues/save states/autofire/hacks etc.
- If you're a MARP competitor on this title, keep in mind this is just a friendly competition among forum members
- Even if you don't *think* you have a competitive score, post it anyway to keep the thread fun & provide a good sense of score ranges.
- Only post scores that take place during the competition period (no posting your best score from last year, etc.).
- Some pausing is ok (after all, as someone else posted, many of us have kids/jobs/etc that require our focus)



What shall we begin with?  How about...Burgertime!
--------------------------------
Game Name : Burgertime :: Data East - 1982
ROM Name  = btime
--------------------------------

Game Settings:
LIVES: 3
DIFFICULTY: NORMAL
BONUS LIFE: 20,000
ENEMIES: 4
END OF LEVEL PEPPER: YES
CROSS HATCH PATTERN: OFF (no idea what this means)

Controls:   
4-way joystick, 1 button (pepper)

From Arcade Museum:

The object of the game is for Peter Pepper to assemble four giant burgers without colliding with any pursuing hot dogs, eggs or pickles who appear in later stages. Peter Pepper has to climb up ladders and walk across ramps to get to each of the burger fixings which include buns, beef patties, lettuce leaves and sometimes tomato slices and cheese slices.
Peter Pepper has to walk across each of the burger fixings, so they will fall downward to the each of the lower ramps until they reach each of the plates below at the bottom of the screen. He must assemble all four burgers to advance to the next stage. As the hot dogs, eggs and pickles pursue him, he can stop them three different ways. He can throw a pinch of pepper on them to stun them and make them temporarily harmless, but his pinches of pepper are limited, so he will have to use it wisely. Additional pinches of pepper can be gained by getting bonus items the will occasionally appear on the screen temporarily including ice cream cones, french fries and cups of coffee.

Another way Peter Pepper can stop his pursuers is by crushing them with one of the burger fixings. He does this by dropping it onto them whenever they walk under it. The third way to stop them is by dropping them on one of the burger fixings whenever they walk onto it, this will also allow each of the burger fixings to fall two, three or four floors more depending on how many of them are on it. However the pursuers are put out of action, they will continue to walk around in each stage until all the burgers have been completely assembled.







The contest ends on Sunday January 14, at midnight, PST.

Enjoy, and happy gaming!

I always pick up quarters, no matter the weather.

But really, but if hardly anyone is playing, it'd be better to reboot, rather than fizzle out.

I agree.  You guys were picking some crappy ass games there for a while. Let's get back to some of the classics.

I found that a few of the games were some real gems (Hopping Mappy, for me), but yes, most of them felt like doing chores.  And kept me from spending that time playing games that I enjoyed.

Agreed.  While it was fun to discover some rare gems I wasn't participating when the classics were on the table.  Hopefully this will generate more interest.

I haven't achieved a score worth posting yet but am steadily improving.  One thing I've noticed is the game doesn't play very well with the the U360 on my MAME cabinet.  I play Burgertime a lot in the wild on a dedicated machine and much prefer the original joystick.

14,300. My first and final score. No 4-way joystick = Worst. Fonking. Controls. Evar.

Yikes. This game's controls are finicky even WITH a 4-way. I couldn't imagine the pain of playing on an 8-way.

Let's say I was very close to smashing a gamepad over this. I have played this with two different gamepads, both in analog and digital mode, with a keyboard and on my 8-way cab. The controls suck. I draw the line if I have more difficulties wrestling the controls than playing the game. I have yet to complete a game in which I don't die because I couldn't get on/off a ladder or simply stop moving because I didn't press exactly in one of the directions.

So far the best I got is 9950 and I dislike the pickles on the third level.

My frustrations with controls is usually connected to the location of Peter Pepper getting off the ladder. I have a 4-way, so it's not that, it's because if you're not in just the exact right spot, it doesn't let you on/off.

I still get in a hurry and mess that up, even with the joystick.

Close. I screwed up the side art a bit. The control panel is temporary. I am going to put in a Burgertime panel. At one time I thought I wanted a trackball and three buttons. I also need a new grill for the speaker.

I want to strip the vinyl off this summer and stencil it properly. I will also put actual t molding on it instead of the stick on stuff. That along with the correct control panel will make me happy with the machine.

First time I have entered one of these...  I have never played BTIME much, but I like it..  my score sucks though...   I am playing with a keyboard currently, so I'm hoping that's holding me back.

8400
