ROMSet: indytemp.zip + atarisy1.zip (bios for system 1 board games)

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

Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indiana_Jones_and_the_Temple_of_Doom_%281985_video_game%29
KLOV: http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=8186



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

Specific Rules:


Settings:  Default/Preset difficulty levels.

- One Credit, 3 Lives and no Continues allowed.
- Can only start on Easy Path
- No MAME Cheats

- Last day is Sunday April 7th (11:59:59pm Pacific Daylight Time), 2019.

General Rules:

- Highest 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.

Good luck!

Didn't like this game when it was new, don't like it now. Don't really like this era of Atari in general.

Not sure why the vitriol.
I liked this game when it came out. Still seems OK to me.

Shoehorned in 1 game.

41,760

Not good enough to beat BIF, PUD, SOD or FIG, but I did crush RAT and COW...

Not sure why the vitriol.

Because of hypersensitive controls and cheap deaths galore.

Question. Can these high score comps be played on the original hardware or does it have to be mame. Just wondering as I own this game and find it fun.

Edit: Anyone notice this comp should have ended before it began? 2018. Lol.

Go ahead. I don't think that using the original hardware would make a difference.

Just make sure to fire up your DeLorean, go back a year and finish the game before April 7th, 2018. And then find a way to post in a thread that doesn't exist back then. No prob  :)

I thought any hardware was allowed, as long as it is the parent rom.

I too loved this game when released: next-gen graphics and game play, great music. I didn't enjoy playing it for the reasons yamatetsu mentioned, but have long since figured those out, and love playing the game. However, occasionally I can't make whip spots in the opening screen and end up falling into the bubbling bath - or landing too close to the second level cave opening..... Played two games, the first one not making it past the return trip in the opening screen, the second one landing as mentioned and so I went with it. I can start at level one if you like.

Addition (second image): I had a good time playing from level one tonight (I survived the opening screen - but not the first time around!). Score is lesser.

- No MAME Cheats

If I interpret your post correctly, the higher score doesn't count because you didn't start at the easy level.

Now fire up the easy level and go beat 174,630 to get the new high score!

Finally beat BIF & PUD, but PTR still edged me out...

I like this game. I must be weird.

I don't know what is unclear....though I had a feeling I should have posted the second bit independently. Doesn't matter as this isn't a competition.

But it must be. It says so in the topic title.

Your 107k make a difference. If you made them starting at level 1 (which I think you did), that means that I get to choose the next game. If not, it's pbj's turn.

Yeah this game does suck.  I love the sound, theme and the graphics but the controls are wack.  Hopefully the next guy does better.    ;D

Another game done. So, depending on whether Mr. Peabody's score is valid or not, it's either me or pbj to choose the next one. I vote for pbj, simply because I'm curious which game it will be (I think it's going to be Kangaroo  ;D).

Let's do Space Panic.

If I'm reading the lists correctly, it's never been done.  And I'm terrible at it and have no idea how you actually play it.

Nope, it isn't featured in popsicle's high score compo list and also has no score in quarterstringer's high scores list.

Let's do Space Panic.

Ehm, you are supposed to make the new thread. And also to post a link to the new thread here.
