  1. Sorry Luigi ...I'll try to improve my score to ease the burden
  2. Updated score: 16,700 points !
  3. Hey guys it has been way too long ! I'll have to install our DB manager and other stuff before I can help moderate again. So, a kind request @hansolo77 to update the boards with my score of 14,310 points ~ GC
  4. Hey guys, it has been way too long.....No excuses there. I've had such a blast setting up this Highscore forum together with @hansolo77 and other forum friends like @DazzleHP and not to forget our database master @Adultery. I have to admit it touches my heart the enthusiasm and participation level is dropping. I feel a bit ashamed I left Han moderating this forum the last year. You're doing an amazing job Han ! What I don't want to do is making promises I can't keep. I have done that before unfortunately... I still hope I will again join you guys someday but I also know my life has changed. I now live together with my girlfriend and we also have plans like getting married and have kids. I guess I have some other / more priorities compared to two years ago. However, I still love arcade games and hope this HS forum stays around for a long time ! The discussion is how to generate more enthusiasm and keep it manageable for Han to moderate this forum. @hansolo77: I hope I can join you again in the near future to help you moderate this forum. But again, I don't want to make promises I'm not sure I can keep. A few things that come to mind... * I agree with @Cynicaster: the database of scores accumulated over multiple years is one of the cool things about the competition. I think we should keep it - together with the Leaderboard. * Advertising the competition on the main forum - pinned topic every month - is a good idea I think. Advertising on other forums...I don't know...I'm thinking of the days TodayIsForgotten was estroying each score. It should stay a friendly casual highscore competition I think. * Adding a new game each month is maybe too much. You could perhaps add a new game every quarter and every other month have a re-match of games already added to our database. So 4 new games per year and 8 re-matches. Just an idea. * I've been creating point based award icons in the past (gold, silver, bronze game specific incons: really cool ) It was or is a good idea but also time consuming. I had to create about 3-5 awards per game...and we have a lot of games. I still think however it could be a nice incentive (especially if you should stop adding new games) if you can earn awards and have them showcased somehow. How to showcase them is almost equally important; maybe adding icons to the user's account ? One drawback: as of now I can't come up with a good idea to keep this award idea manageable and really worth the effort compared to the few members submitting hi-scores as of now. It's all about generating more enthusiasm, adding new incentives and also keeping all of this's tough...but really worth the effort to think about ! We all share the love of arcade games ! ~ GC

    I hope all is well!  Did you see the game of the month? Defender!  That game sold 55000 machines in a year for a reason!  We are playing TG Rules, which we usually do.  5 Men.  




  6. @millerbrad I would very much like to know which program you use to record your gameplay ! I also use Mame with hiscore support and when I tried to record my gameplay (has been a long time ago) Mame screwed up my in-game hiscore table.
