Full speed and trying to squeeze in between cars in the corners and no crashing. But I do not know what passing bonus means as it seems to be lower than other rounds (= Passing cars?)

I forgot how dodgy the collision detection can be around the turns!  I have only been able to make it through lap #4 so far on Novice level using Classic99 on my thinkpad x201.

Yeah, it's supposed to be how many cars you passed (and didn't pass you back!)

PM me your address and I'll get those carts out to you, and I guess you're up to choose the next game!

Hi everyone! As Ciro explained, I could not connect to the internet for a couple of days, during which I achieved my best score...

Not enough to win, but now that Ferrari is doing well in F1 at least one Italian score had to be registered! :-)

And you lnow, Ciro is too busy with useful stuff :-)

Gosh that game is tough. I had tried it in the past and I could just barely get past the first level... Beautifully crafted game though, a masterpiece.

Rasmus - it would be nice to take the screenshot of the playing field with the high score.

(now it disappears very fast)

 

 

Score: 30.000

Level 2 (with the big airplane and ship it is very hard).

Thanks for choosing my game for the competition  :).

 

I think you have 5 seconds before the game over screen will disappear. This should be enough to pause Classic99 so you can take a screenshot.

 

But if you need a longer delay you can open the bin file in a hex editor and change the word at address 295c from 012c to a bigger number. 20 seconds, for instance, would be 04b0.

Tip for MAME players: Press <ScrlLock>*, then <F12> to create a snapshot. The snapshots are in the subfolder snap/ti99_4a in your MAME folder.

 

(*Unless you reassigned the mode key to another key, which you have to press.)

PS. I will come up with a prize but give me 2+ weeks as at my place I only have the bare minimum TI stuff...

broke out the new monster joystick and we played a bit this weekend, no scores worth reporting but my Brother in Law seems to be pretty good at this genre of game.
