Our game this month is the classic Centipede, played on Standard. Use original systems and Atari mfg controls, including trackball if desired. Only modern exceptions allowed are flashcarts/SDloaders. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

Round ends when months does and suggestions welcome.

21,187. I cant hold in the CX52 button any more, so Im done with this OE round. What, we cant used OE equipment like master play or Wico? My CX52 controllers are all in bad shape even after trying to clean them and adjust them!

Also, Centipede 5200 is even harder than the coin op version!

Edit - just to be clear, the score was achieved using cx52 OE sticks!

Use of the 3rd party alternatives was voted down at the creation of the OE. It can be put to a vote again for next season. There's also an entire month to play each round, so plenty of time to rest up. And yes, this is likely the hardest port of Centipede devised.

The aim of this HSC was to provide an even challenge to all, not dependent on luck or funds to find rare and few special controls. I'd proposed allowing them, as they were still analog, and having had them myself, found no advantage in their use. If anything, they hurt my game, but I'm also rare. ;)

The Wico stick hurts my game too actually, compared to a good CX52. I am no more accurate with the Wico than with the OE controls, but the firebuttons on Wico are wonderful. For digital control games a masterplay interface along with any digital pad (Like Genesis pad!) or joystick is a huge advantage in control, however.

Anyway, Centipede is masterfully programmed. http://cafeman.www9....0centipede.html

All I do for this one (on any platform) is hold in fire and hope for the best.

The march through March ends with defending OE champ sdamon in a narrow victory of worthy opponent Cafeman.  :thumbsup:  Thanks to those who played. Our next month is up and running. Me, I played, but well, I suck at this one, lol.

21,445  sdamon +11
