Just a little table at the round's mid-point for those interested. :)

Current total scores:

6296 zylon (+1)
4655 peedenmark7 (+1)
3696 sdamon (+1)
2682 JacobZu7zu7
920 Sonic R
454 BydoEmpire

It's now the weekend so I'll share a tip as promised. ;)
On Doubles, when you get down to one brick, lose your ball. When you start next ball, you'll have 2 bouncing around. If you can keep them both going, you have a good chance of the next screen starting with a ball already bouncing on the top bricks. This is great for mega-scores. :cool:

Cool tip zylon, :thumbsup:
Now the key for me would to have a ball to spare by then lol. I lose most games, when it goes on top...and makes my paddle shrink to half-size. :x

Sonic and I, also broke the previous Breakout record, shouldn't we have a +1 too?

Does the BONUS (progressive) get added to our final totals?

Getting slightly better - tried a few more games, although I didn't replay Progressive. Here are my totals:

Breakout: 445 - almost cleared the first board, one brick to go. :'(
Progressive: 356
Doubles: 500
Cavity: 373

Once someone breaks the record, they have set a new one which must be beaten to get the bonus point. The two of you were just a bit late on the draw. The Breakout record was sickeningly low so I let one full day pass before posting to give others a chance at it. :)
So, the answer to both questions is no. :| The bonus/progressive is a separate contest in which top 3 submitted scores get a HSC point.

I'll make an exception on the HSC record bonus this time only. If every player this round beats the original Breakout mode record, I'll give the bonus point to all. Only one player hasn't beat it yet or submitted a score.

The A8 version lets you do this easier it seems and I've yet to get it to work on 2600 port.
Nice to see one of my "secrets" working in the real world. :thumbsup:

Quick question - what does (busted) mean in the HSC Records section on the first post, and why is my total only my score from Breakout, not the other modes? Just not updated? Not a big deal, just wondering if I didn't do something right.

(busted) means record has been busted, new record follows it. :) I'm not updating the total score count each day, but am keeping the individual scores current. I will be updating the totals table tonight. :cool: You only had one score submitted at the time I did the table. ;)

In the meantime, I worked on Doubles some and broke it. :? I cleared the screen and was on 4th ball and it wouldn't put up the next screen. :sad: I was on a roll too. :x

Doubles: 1870
