Our challenge this month singles out the 5200 for its' unique controls. Play Pole Position on a level we've never yet run: Namco Speedway 8lps. Play using Atari mfg systems and controls. Modern flashcarts or SD loaders allowed. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

Round ends when month does. :)

You do mean Namco Speedway for 8 laps. I don't see a Namco GP. Just making sure.

76,850. Nearly made it to Lap 7. The amount of cars to deal with during the later laps is comparable to rush hour at times. Ran a 57"08 for Lap 2. Best Pole Lap so far was a 58"30. Another one of those games that is fun and aggravating at the same time.

w/ stock controller.  Both races ended near the end of the 7th lap, but on the higher score, I crashed only once.  You'd think someone could get to the 8th lap w/o crashing, and surpass 100,000 points.

No crashes this time, but just couldn't finish the 7th lap.  Slightly better score (see below).

It's said that AGP 8lp is the hardest setting in the game, but I've always felt the Namco 8lp was harder.

Hey, are your screen colors like that from the start of the game, or do they change after a couple laps? I've got to play mine well over an hour to get that effect.

 

Anyways...

I once made the mistake years ago of turning a dial inside the system that adjusts the colors.  Recently I tried adjusting again, but I can never seem to get the colors just right.

 

Also: I have a new score to share.  I didn't crash until lap #8, and I couldn't quite finish.

OK. Just thought I'd say something as "green becoming brown" is a classic warning of failing voltage regulator. I use Kaboom for setting color on all 2600/5200's. Just dial to the greenest green possible and you're set.
