(+_+) Great score on Q-bert.
I was going to try and beat it, then I saw how many men you had left.

Here's my score for Tetris - 238,388

Believe me quarterstringer, it wasn't a cakewalk. I suffered miserably going down to one man on 2 occasions and thought you'd remain the local champ. I only started to warm up at the end. It used to be so much easier when I was a kid.

I had a mini-marathon with Q*Bert. 

I built up a good amount of extra lives (got one at 8k and every 14k).  From what I could tell, you don't see the extra Q*berts after you've accumulated 9 (on screen) but as soon as you die, you gain another, as if it was in a queue?  The 9 on screen started dwindling shortly after passing 700,000.  I thought I was done for sure....then I started wondering if I could reach 1 million....  Well, that didn't happen. 

I took a screen shot in progress, around 500k, and again at the end.  After about two and a half hours, I ended up with 889655.

I was playing with a Mag Stik Plus, configured for the diagonals with no issues. Except the joystick stared feeling loose (like underneath).

As mentioned, I've got screen shots but I don't know how to record video.  Nor do I know how to play back others' vids.  Any help?

Congrats!

I was just checking Twin Galaxies and they record the score after the fifth death. I wonder where you were at that point.

Thanks Ginsu.  :cheers:  I don't know when my 5th death was.  Next time, I'll see if I can count. 

I've been on Twin Galaxies site before, but saw many instances for the same games.  Some as tournament, some as marathons.  MAME versus not MAME...I can't make heads or tails of it to determine which list/rules to look at.

(Any thoughts on how to capture a vid?)

There's 2 tracks for MAME Q*Bert, Marathon and Tournament. Tournament is the 5 lives only track. Marathon is until you drop dead ;D It's easy to figure out which one to look at...if you're playing MAME, select platform MAME when doing the search, otherwise choose arcade. Some games you don't really need to worry about it, as there might only be a couple versions, but a popular game, like Pac-Man, if you don't choose a platform, you'll get a ton of different ones. That's why it's just easier to search on whatever platform you're looking for.

Thanks for the explanation CrazyKong.  I did not know what they meant by 'Marathon'.  I figured it was a score recorded at some annual gathering or something.

As I mentioned, looking at Twin Galaxies site often confuses me, and mayeb this is good example of why...

Right now I'm looking at Asteroids/MAME([Asteroids Rev 2]) http://www.twingalaxies.com/index.aspx?c=22&pi=46&gi=4293&vi=12447.

If I'm reading it correctly the 10th place score is a mere 9,640.  Even 7th thru 10th haven't reached 100,000. 

Either I'm misinterpreting the site or people just aren't submitting scores.  :dunno

Some have lots of scores (look at Donkey Kong for MAME), and some only have a few. Also remember, the arcade scores have been tracked since the early 80's. Some of the MAME scores are recent (although Asteroids has probably been tracked since they started tracking MAME scores). Alot of arcade games get a ton of scores from events like the Funspot tourney. Usually everyone who participates in the tournament has their scores entered in TG's database (although it's not actually a TG event, they're usually there with a few refs)

Thanks for the update Epyx. 

Now, I was looking to take on Joust, but I'm a bit confused....the high score appears to be 226k by Shoegazer, but when I look through the Joust thread, it looks like (+_+) got over 1 million.

So, what's the 'score to beat' for Joust?

Shoegazer was listed in all the competitions since then as the #1 with no corrects ever put forth so that is what I went by (just looked for the highest Shoegazer score based on the comps all showing him as #1 since the Joust competition.

Sure enough it shows +_+ with a higher score but then you will notice that Shoegazer starts off comp #7 and he is listed from then on as the high score champ for Joust...

My guess (unless they say otherwise) is that +_+ disqualified himself as a MARPs competitor or just played it for fun.

Okay!  I just got myself 261,150.  Funny, because when I was approaching the end, I was thinking the score to beat was 266k and thought I fell short.  Then I saw your update!

I used to be pretty good at this game.  I remember playing once, playing one game for 6 hours.  I know this because I rode my bike to the arcade so that I was there when they opened at 11am and had to leave at 5p to be home for dinner...lol.  At one point, I had all top 40 scores on the machine...and it was a very popular arcade.  Since it only allowed for 5 entries of the same initials, I had stuff like TJB, TB_, _TB, T_B, TJ_, _TJ, T_J, etc.

Ever since MAME though, I really didn't have interest in playing.  Too slow at first, then too fast.  Now, I'm finding the love again.   :)

F12 isn't as easily accessible right now so I went with the camera...

I know it isn't on the list but I been working my way up the karate champ score.

It isn't a great score but not horrible either.



I just recently been taking screen shots of it but when I eventually get better and over the 100,000 mark consistantly I will start video taping it.

Awesome scores!  :cheers:

The only thing to keep in mind is that the high score comps here are generally more friendlies than professional outings...we generally ask Twin Galaxy/MARP competitors to partake but not necessarily submit their scores.

Yeah My Twin Gallaxy scores where submitted way before I knew about this thread.  I am not a professional by any means just showing off because i have nothing else in my life hahahhaha

That isn't 100% true I have a lovely family and two great little girls.

You guys get what I mean or at least the ones with small children do.  Not much time for anything.  Ok i have completely derailed  :banghead:

I am very Proud of this score.  I just scored it 6-20-10  15 under par on Coconut Cove Golden Tee 99 Arcade PCB Machine.

I scored an eagle on the last whole to break my record for that course.  I wish I video taped the whole thing but the girls would of just kicked it over or something.

(you can hear my daughters in the background screaming for me)

I'm sure there are better bomb jack players on this board since the game was new to me as of the competition....even so, it would be nice to have my actual winning score listed until I get beaten down.  :hissy:

This thread says 222,710, but my winning score was 664160.   ;D

I actually beat that score by a fair margin about a week after the comp ended.  I wasn't doing so well with my own game choice of smash t.v. so I went back and played a few games of bomb jack.  I had forgotten some of the patterns, but oddly enough I ended up doing better.

I just started playing Dig Dug over the weekend.  Man, what an awesome game.  I suck (54,XXX is my high) but I am learning how to group the enemies for maximum points on the rocks.  Also, I just figured out that the fruit appears after you drop the second rock no matter what.  Yeah, I'm slow.  Any other tips?

Not bad.  I just reached 814,370.  I was just about to post my new high score and yours already beat mine.  I've improved so much on my vertical cab.  :-)  Hopefully I'll hit 1 million soon.   >:D

And here I was hoping to have the high score, because the board hasn't been updated with isucamper's. At least it's a new high score for me. The platform screen after level 8 is ferocious. Funny thing is it wraps at one million.

I would LOVE to have an original Zookeeper cabinet.  I'm so jealous!  That, a Robotron and a Ms. Pac and I'd be a happy camper.

Well, mine is in a Qix... which isn't as cool, but it's an official conversion so it feels identical.



Btw... 3,258,020

Had a 2 million point jump on this one.  What an awesome game!

I'm sure there are better bomb jack players on this board since the game was new to me as of the competition....even so, it would be nice to have my actual winning score listed until I get beaten down.  :hissy:

This thread says 222,710, but my winning score was 664160.   ;D

I actually beat that score by a fair margin about a week after the comp ended.  I wasn't doing so well with my own game choice of smash t.v. so I went back and played a few games of bomb jack.  I had forgotten some of the patterns, but oddly enough I ended up doing better.

Not sure what u got in the end there bpark42 but i finally got my cab playable a week ago and i tought i give BombJack a try. Today i started playing Bomb Jack, man its been 25 years since i played this game with arcade controllers and i love it :-) I managed to get 848412  :cheers:

Yeah, once you get up to around level 7, the points really start adding up. I actually had two keepers extra at the platform screen that high, and the coconuts came so fast, yet everything was moving so slow (famed hardware slowdown) that it just tripped me out. Kind of like being really amped up in Foosball, and then the opponent slides a slow ball right past you.
