Final attempt on Frostbite  433,220

(I hit my target score on Frostbite, which was 400,000 points using my 7800 console, and I'm very satisfied with this score)

My recent Frostbite gameplay footage (Game 1 on Stella) was provided during Activision Patches Summer Quest on July 3rd, 2015, just to give a frame of reference

And after this, I posted my 575,070-point score at HighScore.com

I am astounded at everyone's scores for these two games - great job, HSC players!. But personally, I'd rather be buried under an avalanche than play either one of these f#*!ing wintery games ever again. I'm gonna' go play some California Games just to get some warmth back in my extremities.

In for points:
FB 59730
Skiing 24.96
In Skiing, I had never played that setting, I had played game 3 and just barely got the patch in the 80s

Vocelli, you put the wrong name on Skiing for 23.66.  It should be me , not Hatefulgravey.

Got my 200k score. I think that will jump me 4 spots in the over all for this week. Another 20k would be very valuable in the over all race. Might just have to see if I can get that little more in before the deadline.

I guess I'm playing the slow and steady game right now.  Will have to play more seriously next week!

Turns out I was playing with the difficulty switches at A instead of B. I forgot that Stella starts the switches in that position, and everytime you launch a game (or maybe just start sAtella) you need to toggle them. The game is much easier starting at B.

I didn't have much time to play this week. I only had a little before the deadline, so I just posted a few scores to stay on the board. I never played Frostbite before. I definitely want to revisit it and practice some more. I need to stop being so anxious and slow it down a bit! It is a good game and a worthy part of the Activision legacy on the 2600.

Stella always starts with the switches set at 'B', unless you have specifically set ROM properties to 'A' instead.  So this must be something you've done on your system.

My name is spelled wrong in the Frostbite section. Not sure how a "D" got in there. :)

I thought this was the case, but I wasn't sure I didn't change that in my settings so I said nothing. Thanks for clearing that up.
