  1. I dunno... Seems like it's exactly the same as the regular running event, but you also throw some jumps in there at the right time.
  2. I occasionally think about changing my username here to "RxBrad" to match most of my other accounts online. If it's even possible, I wonder how much stuff that would break... (High Score boards, GameEx Online, GameEx licensing, etc, etc)
  3. That stuff will make your face fall off, though. On the bright side, SSDs are dirt cheap right now. Maybe a good excuse to use one/some of those instead of the old-school HDs. Once you go SSD, you never go back.
  4. Maybe a dumb question.... but how do I get GameEx EVO to show the Hyperspin-style wheel view? I only seem to be able to get it to show the traditional list-style.
  5. 36,400. As usual, DIPs set as required. Etc, etc, etc
  6. 39,410. I'm not sure what's going on with the high score board on this game for the latest MAME. It just shows 3:203:0, and no matter what score I get, it won't let me register my initials. I even tried deleting the .hi file from MAME, but it doesn't seem to help.
  7. Here's an almost-but-not-quite respectable 102,820. I would've kept trying, but the wife saw me having fun and invented some chores to do.
  8. 42,100. This game is downright abusive to anyone used to Pac-Man. Exits on the edge of the screen are super-not-safe; and if you & a bad guy "tie" getting to the point on the screen where you'll be able to "eat the ghosts", you lose that tie every time.
  9. There we go... 81,230 Bosco Sticks scored. DIPs all set as required.
  10. Is this the game that finally adds to my lonely Circus Charlie win? Probably not. But since I finally fired up my cab again, I'm down for an attempt at last place. Let's do this!
  11. I'm here for my participation trophy. 8,900 points, comfortably in last place.
  12. If an enemy throws a throwing star at you, you get a point for each one you hit. It's possible to repeatedly hit throwing stars out of the air and farm points. I imagine the same probably applies to boomerangs and knives. In my case, I just farmed off the first couple throwing star guys on the first level.
  13. Yeesh.. I looked up leeching for the game on TG, and it seems like a slippery slope of yuck. At one point they were saying you could farm up to 15pts per enemy. That basically involved someone watching the game and counting every projectile you hit. I'll make this easy.. go ahead and ignore the 115 (I didn't count, but I probably went over 15 on at least 1 guy).
  14. For what it's worth, the 75 and the 115 both ended with me dying on the second boss. 75 was without farming stars, 115 farmed. So technically - maybe - I guess it'd meet the rules for no more than 50pts leeched (?) But, you guys are the bosses, so I'm cool either way...
  15. Huh. Impressive game for 1983. 75,627pts.
  16. 81,210. Striving to underachieve.
  17. Here's my first attempt: 75pts. I actually found a good way to farm points off throwing stars and had a 115pt run, but accidentally hit the exit button instead of the screenshot button on my cab when I tried to save it. EDIT: Realized that the 115pt score actually saved on the high score table at 8th place. Submitting that one, too (if I can)...
  18. Dang. I should play this game, given that I think I suggested it in the first place. Bummer that TwinGalaxies doesn't use the "tmnt2po" version of the ROM. Not being able to (easily) play as Donatello on my 2P cab is blasphemy, I tell you! Blasphemy!
  19. You guys are getting these scores without even beating the first boss? Dang, I must be missing something score-wise. I can fairly consistently make it to the second level. Even to the second boss a couple times. The trick to the first boss is to stand underneath it once it lifts itself up in its legs. Don't try this on the camel, though, (unless you're better than me) because its gun doesn't aim fast enough to hit the rockets coming from the sides.
  20. Photobucket must've starting really restricting how much you can view uploaded images. GC's scores in this thread are already hidden, as is the banner on the main leaderboard. To the best of my knowledge, imgur doesn't limit how much you can view uploaded images.
  21. I got mine for $40 off Amazon. 7" LCD. It included a driver board with VGA, HDMI, and composite; but I had to also get a power supply for $8 or so.
  22. Not sure if I've shared my build here yet, despite finishing it about 2 years ago... GameEx with GameExtender on a second display between the main monitor & the control panel. In-game, the second display shows PNGs of the button assignments generated with CPWizard. I can also swap out the control panel with a flat panel and play mouse & keyboard games. I also did a custom theme which you can see in this quick, extremely low-fi video I made of the cab in action: Since making the video, I've installed RocketLauncher alongside GameEx for it's MAME bezels (and the ability to send screenshots to my network with fancy HLSL effects in place, which I use for the GameEx High Score Competition).
