I'm not too good at this game :(
I'm hoping to get some time with this tonight! Missile Command has seen alot of time in my 5200, but I generally use it to test trak-ball controllers!

After some technical difficulties, which kept me up till 4:30am, I can get back to 5200 action. My primary control port was always a loose fit, but started giving me glitchy control on this round with either of my controllers. First, I replaced the port but no such luck. I've switched to system #2's motherboard. Haven't given up on the original and will try the analog buffers next.

Yes. Start another game and pause it. The score in top center will be the High Score reached. :)

Thanks. I've actually rolled that mode on the A8 version, but prefer the 5200's regular play mode over the A8. I've got to tinker with my system again some as the glitchy control is back. Best I got last night was 127k on regular game. 5200 controls are the best for me to use when my hands hurt, which is nearly everyday the last 2 weeks with all the rain. :(

Are you using the trackball controller or the stock stick.
I would have to think that the trackball is better suited for this game.

Nope. Just my un-rebuilt cx52. :) I tried a couple of my others and they do the same thing: cursor positioning is real jittery around the edges and low. The backup system doesn't do this. If I don't get it tonight, I'll use the backup for tomorrow.

There are two types of Missile Command players in the Arcade. First are those who put a quarter in the machine..and 20+ minutes later they still have a couple of cities left!! Then there are those who crowd around the spectacle, in stunned amazement :ponder:. I confess to be amongst the latter. Keep duking it out guys, while I sit back and watch in stunned amazement...

Missile Command:
Standard mode-- 57,480
Practice mode-- 75,615
No Bonus cities- 38,640
