Hi AtariAgers

 

Just to let you know, bounties are being offered for the 'impossible' scores of 5.54 and 5.51 on Dragster for the VCS.

 

Please have a look at this thread at Twin Galaxies for full details:

http://www.twingalax...-bounty-bonanza

 

The bounties currently stand at

$605.51 for 5.51

$130 for 5.54

 

It would be tremendous if any of you guys over here fancied contributing to the bounty pot, or indeed had a go at getting either of the scores. (Though you may need a cosmic ray to hit you at exactly the right moment for the latter).

 

If anyone does feel like throwing in some cash, and isn't registered at Twin Galaxies, please feel free to PM me here or at the Donkey Kong Forum and I'll have it added to the pot.

 

All the best

Spaceman

odds are it will never happen, but I still love the fact that dragster is getting so much more attention now that this whole thing started happening.

Even after all this time, I still question the legitimacy of his achievements.

just posted this to the speedtun.com forums as there are 5 people there with recorded 5.57's, so they may or may not come try and collect

haha, Nads, that's why, I noticed that too the other day and looked at his profile. I was wondering why you visited it just a few hours before me

apparently there is basically no way to start in second gear and finish with a 5.5x, it would be a 5.4x or 5.3x

I am confused, I know you did something to the game to get that time, but what did you do? did you eliminate the bust sensor on it?
