Thats 80,000 more than my high score and I was damn proud of it when I achieved it.  I'm glad I didnt bother posted my score earlier.  That score quite frankly seems impossible to me.

 List the Joysticks used to make the scores you attained.


 Honestly,  without the correct sticks for this game... its nearly
impossible to get very deep into the game.

 The best sticks for this game IMOP, are the Original Wico 8 way Leaf
joysticks.  Ive tried with other sticks.. and its game over in 1/10th the time of the Wico's.

I need to get this game working on my MAME - I have wico leafs.

Played at Wade's 2 weeks ago and was getting around 110-120k. He has Sanwas or some other Japanese joysticks in there. No offense to the Jap controls fans, I just find them horrible and cheap feeling.

I haven't played this game very much until this morning.

My previous best was around 40,000 and in 10 minutes this morning I improved to 135,100.

I'll keep plugging away and get up there above 200,000!

You suck.  It took me about 35 games to get to 143,000.

I'm using Happ Comps as well.  I dont seem to notice any issues during gameplay.......other than I suck.

How do you check to confirm that you are on default settings? I'm pretty sure I am but I want to double check.

So far today I'm at 164,400. My kid will be home from school soon and has bigger high score than me in the 300k+. Again I want to confirm our difficulty settings, etc.

I checked by holding down F1 then hitting F2 twice. Then set "Restore Factory Settings" to YES. It set the difficulty to 3 and don't worry about losing your high scores, it doesn't reset them.

Cool, thanks quarterstringer! Thats the way to get into the settings. Also, search for "change robotron mame settings" and this thread pops up already.  :burgerking:

I apologize in advance.

Coincidentally, I stumbled across the Twin Galaxies world record for Robotron yesterday afternoon. For tournament mode for MAME Level 5, 5 men only (no free men), the record is ~ 595,000. I played about 30 games yesterday, swore like a trooper and ended up with 591,000 points. I thought I had beaten the record since I thought it was only 567,000, panicked and stupidly crashed into an electrode only to find out a minute later I didn't beat it.

I have actually whooped that score in the past, posting 512,000 on my first man. I ended up with about 800,000 after 5 men. This was on level 7 on the arcade version. There was a contest going on to win an all you can play day at the arcade. The contest was set up as who could get the highest score on level 7, 12 men only with no free men.

I ended up with ~ 1,417,000

To make a long story short, your going down.  ;)

I'll set it to level 10 just for kicks. Have you ever tried level 10. It's sick, especially when you do something shifty and get away with murder.

In a mame32 version...highlight your selection then goto: File > Play and Record Input. This will record your .inp to your specified location...you could then attach it to your post and people with your mame version sould be able to view your entire game.

I just got my personal best 259,875. I got a screen but no inp. My kid couldn't break 200k tonight...

Still can't get into the swing of things - I used to score much higher. However, fired up a couple of games, and just got 320,225.

Hey Ummon - how about posting a top 10 (if we get that many participants) in the original post?

Even with U360s this game just isn't the same in MAME as it is with the real thing, despite the claims that the emulation is now correct.  I average about 800,000 in MAME, with my best score being around 1.5 million.  On my authentic Robotron machine at the same settings I score over 1 million on most decent games with several scores well over that.  I have a friend that can roll the game, so he is no longer allowed to play on my machines :-)  Regardless, this is the best game ever made IMO.  I will try to get a game in tomorrow to submit a score.

We are in total agreement on that. It's a flawless game.
I've never broken 700K, so I won't win this competition. But I'll give it a try this weekend.

I tried and tried to inp and mng. My widescreen prevents me from recording using inp due to a no signal messsage and the mng file cuts short on my one million attempt on level 10/3 men/25,000 per additional man.

The mng file is 150 MB and justs stops at around the 156,000 score, even though I have 6 men left??

So here's the screenshots. You'll just have to believe it. Truth be told, the tank waves were treating me like crap the whole way through. You should try a tank wave on level 10. They can eat up your men in no time if you screw up.

I fogort to mention, I still had 4 men left. Should have had 7 men plus more in memory by this point, but like I said I choked on a few tank waves.

.inp recording is the way to go.  A lot smaller and you can post it here.  Mng files are too big.

Try going to the MARP site for help:

http://marp.retrogames.com/record.htm

But here is a breakdown:
-  place the contents of the zip file attached to this post to your MAME directory.
-  go to the c:\ prompt and navigate to the MAME directory.  To do this in Windows:  Click on Start, Run, type in "cmd" (no quotes) and hit enter.  Type in "cd c:\mame" (no quotes) (or wherever you have mame installed).  The prompt should now be in the mame directory.
-  Type: record robotron (hit enter)  This will automatically record a file named "robotron" to the inp directory.  You can later rename the .inp file to whatever you want when you post it. (give it the .inp extension when you rename it)

You can do the same to playback .inf files:
-  Type: playback robotron robotron (hit enter)
It will automatically play it back.

You must have the EXACT version of MAME to play it back.  So let us know what version you are using.

Hope this helped!

Yeah, Havok, that's a nice idea. I've been using P360s with bat tops for years now. I did play a sort of robotron that I think had some sort of ball tops at a Gameworks and got at least 800k, I think. However, my all-time high is above a million in mame (using my P360s). If the other night is any clue to thing, I bet I'd do better with two U360s fitted with my special restrictor modification. I already have a couple/few scores above 500k since the start of the thread, I've just been lazy in posting. Also note, this version is easier than the yellow/orange label, of which I actually sometimes prefer, but blue is the parent set.

Okay, here's a new score. Default settings is level 3, but I went in and set it to 5 to check it out. I don't know if it was that much harder or what. Oh, I also changed the name entered to allow seven characters. I recorded it, but when I do playback, it says 'ended: out of sync". I dunno. This was on MameUI .128 .

Here's a little better one, though I set the difficulty back to 3.

You should try a tank wave on level 10. They can eat up your men in no time if you screw up.

I tried level 10 today for the first time, and the game is much more intense. I was getting 150,000 most of the time and I finally got one good game in. I don't know if I can challenge your million score, but I plan on keeping level 10 as my default. It's actually more fun because the games are shorter now. :)
