Agreed. Maybe they should've hired Glenn.

The even littlerman and I both tried today to better our scores, and both of us fell short of our previous high scores. We'll try again tomorrow. I just can't stop making silly mistakes, and he can't, well, can't stop being 2 years old for now. :)

Most versions of Moon Patrol I have seen are 5200 conversions. Try pressing control-g on the title screen to check.

Been having some trouble with my XL it crashes after every game of Moon Patrol :x
Anyway, managed 109400 last night, the screenshot is of the previous end of round screen as there isn't time to get a picture before it crashes at the end of the game

Hi Folks,

It is not very impressive, but I got a little improvement when I was on vacation! I have a vacation-address with a 800XL and tiny TFT monitor.

Look at the two pics. Pretty cool eh?

The Cigar Box is my Sio2IDE 3.3a with CF card btw.

I played this game from one of my Moon Patrol carts.

Score 65450

Great score :thumbsup: probaby krupkaj hacking into your system to protect his HSC record :D ... looks like you need one of Marius's cartridges ;)

p.s. Impressive setup Marius, good to have an Atari disaster recovery plan :thumbsup:

Well I wasn't going to play again but might squeeze in one more go before tomorrow's deadline :ponder:

Still time to vote for Round 10 and get your paddles in jitter free order as it looks like you might need them :)

With 1 day left to play Moon Patrol, making the top 10 is tough going - and a8isa1 has still to post so someone might be bumped at the last minute ;)

If you post something on the main A8 forum detailing the symptoms you'll get some help here might be loose chips or something simple; one of the hardware experts will know - mimo are you reading this? ;)

um, could we go back to playing Arkanoid?
3,700 :ponder:

And I gave you such a build up! Almost, it's Super Breakout in the next round... hope you've all sorted out them dodgy paddles :D

Congratulations to McKong storming into his first HSC contest and his first win :thumbsup: and had his atari not exploded he might have taken the Moon Patrol record too. Thanks to everyone for playing, this could be a record participation but I'm not going to open all the posts to find out :!: (though I might check Donkey Kong). If anyone wants to suggest games for this season you can add them to the games list thread :)
