...I will ask his permission to release his tape...he may decline as it has proprietary knowledge...top players are <b>VERY</b> protective of their patterns/strategies/knowledge.
The score is under scrutiny right now
, and since TG cannot offer any evidence
that the score is valid, other than "7+ years experience", it is not an unjustified request to have the tape released
. There's no use in keeping "documentation of scores"
if they cannot be validated by outside sources when questions arise
. Sounds an awful lot like "Trust us. Our finances are fine - WorldCom
...I will make it a point to let Al know when Todd will put on the demonstration so he can witness this himself.
Can you please also post this event
on the CGE Celebrities
section of the web site? I would like some type of documented justification
in case I blow 300 smacks to go to LV to see this demostartion myself
...We will also ask to tape his run digitally and post it to Twin Galaxies.
Should this idea become a regular section of TG
? Sure, some guys want to hide their incredible strategies
, but other videos would be of interest to a lot of people
, and could also validate some of the scores we're "officially given"
...I am also going to ask Todd to visit this forum thread and discuss with you his thoughts, insights, etc.
That is a very generous offer
and I'm sure we all can promise you that it wouldn't turn into any type of Todd Bashing
. We just want to get some insight on how the score came about, how much Todd practices, etc.
Simple erasure (via 2600gfx) or code alteration?
None of the kernal nor any other operations were changed
, only graphics at the end of the ROM. The tops of the windmills were left in to maintain as much original content without interferring with dodging the windmills
. Thus, the animation of the windmills is still present
, but the lower structure is removed
so you just fly right under them. This is the exact same ROM from AtariAge
. And you can get the [i][b][url=http://www.videogamefever.com/atariage_forum/Barnstorming-No_Lower_Windmills.bin]hacked one here
