  1. Do I suck because I've never heard of this game before?
  2. [GOTM] Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    No love for this game huh? I'm on vacation in a week, I'm gonna try and post up a score then!

    Oh yeah! Welcome! I'm sure @GimmeClassics will be in touch with you in PM shortly. He likes to send those out to new players to get them up to speed. Updated OP, DB, RSS

  5. (US) Veterans Day - 11/11/2017

    Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations defines a veteran as “a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.” Guess that answers that. NOPE (it was dishonorable discharge)
  6. (US) Veterans Day - 11/11/2017

    Do we consider soldiers who were IN the army but never served in a war a Veteran? If so, my brother is thankful for your post. He passed basic training and prior to getting shipped to his post-basic base camp he went into an allergic asthma attack from his inoculations. When they checked his service record and application, he indicated no prior existence of asthma (his recruiter told him NOT to include it since he hadn't had an attack in 10+ years). So because he falsified government records, they kicked him out of the army with a threat that he could have been put into Federal Prison for lying, but they let it slide because he was told by his recruiter not to. Pretty messed up, but they wouldn't give him the chance to serve because of that. Still, he completed basic, and was officially classified then as a soldier. But is he a vet?

    My bad. I joked with Mo about his double score posting on the same day, and then I went and forgot to enter it into the DB! So sorry about that buddy! It's all squared away now. Updated OP, DB, RSS

    So here’s a quickie post. It’s not official. I just wanted to verify I have a working controller.
  10. [GOTM] Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    Ok, but why is my Player 1 controller indicating I'm controlling Player 3 as well? EDIT - Fixed it (at least on my end). The problem was that my controller was configured inside RetroArch to be used as P1 and P3. So when I started the game, it detected 2 coin entries, 1 for each of those players. It then had me controlling both of them too. Inside RetroArch, I simply setup my Player 3 Device Index to a different controller (that I only connect as needed). So now it works. I'll probably still play with my PC and GameEx though, so I get a good screenshot rather than use my phone. Hopefully it won't be such a chore setting up there. And yea, Donatello is the best of them. He was always my favorite because of his intelligence over the other guys.
  11. Thanks for participating. Enjoy this month's GOTM and poll!

  13. [GOTM] Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    Cowabunga dudes! Welcome to our end of the year GOTM, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! An awesome game, that's totally radical. I grew up watching the series, reading some of the comics, and playing with the action figures. My brother's school friend had the original NES game, and of course I sucked at it. Our rollerskating rink had the arcade game available, but it was too expensive to play so I only got to watch it. The NES port was a pretty good conversion, and I played it up to (but not killing) Shredder. I expect this will get a lot of good scores posted! One quick thing I noticed. When I was checking my DIP settings for the OP, I noticed the setting for LIVES was different. So you'll want check that. Another thing I noticed, when I gave the machine a coin, it opened up 2 players for me. And when I was playing, my controller moved around BOTH of them. I also couldn't choose a turtle to play. Maybe my ROM is jacked up? Or maybe the settings? Of course, it could be because I'm using MAME 0.78 on a Raspberry Pi (it was quicker and easier to load up from that than having to open it on my PC). Let me know if you guys experience anything like that and know how to fix it. Happy Gaming!

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a side-scrolling beat-'em-up released by Konami as a coin-operated video game in 1989.[1] It is based on the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series which began airing in the winter of 1987. Home versions of the game were released for various platforms.[2] The player chooses from one of the four Ninja Turtles: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Depending on the version of the game, the characters are either, chosen at the start of the game or assigned by control panel. After Shredder kidnaps the Turtles' friend April O'Neil and their mentor Splinter, they must give chase, save their comrades, and defeat the evil Shredder. Up to four players (two in some versions) can take control of any of the Turtles. Donatello has slower attacks but a longer range, Michelangelo and Raphael have faster attacks but a shorter range, and Leonardo is a well-rounded Turtle with average range and speed. The eight-way joystick controls the movements of the Turtle, the jump button makes them jump and the attack button makes them hit in front of them using their weapon. In addition to this, some combinations are possible. The Turtles can throw Foot soldiers overhead, and by pressing the jump and attack buttons, a special attack is performed. Raphael rolls along the ground and finishes with a kick, while the other Turtles do a sweeping jump attack with their weapons. Turtles can also spring off the wall in certain areas. Enemies can be defeated more quickly by slamming them into walls or solid objects. Many objects such as traffic cones, parking meters, fire hydrants and exploding oil drums can be hit or damaged with attacks in order to help defeat nearby enemies. In the attract mode, the game showed the first part of the cartoon opening, along with a portion of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song. Most of the enemies the Turtles face are the Foot Soldiers, all color-coded to indicate their attack patterns and weapon of choices. Some enemies, such as the standard purple-clad Foot Soldiers and Roadkill Rodney robots, have the ability to restrain the Turtles' mobility and drain their health, leaving the player open to attack for other enemies. The bosses in the game include Rocksteady and Bebop (individually at first in that order, and later the two of them together), Baxter Stockman, Granitor, General Traag, Krang, and Shredder himself. The arcade game was distributed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in North America and Oceania, Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles in Europe and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Super Kame Ninja (ティーンエイジ・ミュータント・ニンジャ・タートルズ 〜スーパー亀忍者〜 Tīneiji Myūtanto Ninja Tātoruzu: Sūpā Kame Ninja) in Japan. The game was released primarily as a dedicated four-player cabinet in all regions except Japan, where it was sold only as a 2-player conversion kit. 2-player conversion kits of the game were also released in other regions, serving as less expensive alternatives to 4-player cabinets.
