  1. My Lynx with VGA out has the standard VGA port, but in order to hook it to a framemeister, i have to use a VGA>HDMI adapter, which indeed requires power, and indeed, is clunky. It also is heavy because the vga adapter sticks off the top of the Lynx and so i have to be careful using it. I can capture native video (And do, as on my youtube) but its far from elegant.
  2. @Rick Dangerous thanks for the encouragement, maybe i will, though my credit card bill this month is hideous and about to get worse. hmmmm. Noted you're from VT. I'm actually heading up there (East Burke, and thereabouts) for a few days to visit friends in the rural nearby areas. Fun state. Very different than my philly environs.
  3. @jeremiahjt I didnt know it at first, but then i did figure that out later on. A big help for sure. Its still the challenge of the random pieces spawning, and getting "worse" as the game goes on. I wonder, do the pieces get worse over TIME, or do they get worse (more complex, less useful shapes) based on the number of pieces you've used, cumulatively?
  4. Ah, tempting! I never played much of this game (on AppleII, as a kid, but not since then), and usually i try to get a physical copy of things for these competitions. But i dont know if Shanghai will have staying power for me....maybe will load onto my flashcart.
  5. @jgkspsx really appreciate the tips. Basically i havent been considering the rebuild limits enough, i.e. i need to leave room around the parameter for reconstruction. I.E. placing cannons away from walls, or even skipping new cannons. I got my best score so far using these tips (a lowly 12000) but i can see some new ways to try and play. This is really interesting to me, since i usually can master a game like this (puzzle action) and i see you guys just mopping the floor with me, even after practice. I think i have trouble with the semi-janky tetris aspect (random pieces with no predictable order or shape) and the slow rotation/cursor movement, but im getting slightly better. Thanks for hosting this HSC @roadrunner. I love the chance to practice these games i might otherwise ignore.
  6. Now that the competition is almost over, any tips for this game? Im not terrible at video games, but even making it partway through the 3rd round, my score is still around 8000-9000. I.E. nothing to brag about at all. How are people getting these huge scores? even when i take over 3 castles it seems like my territory bonus isnt very high. I have trouble understanding how one more round is going to lead to these 15000+ scores.....what am i missing?
  7. I got 9,646 after about 6 tries. Im not bothering to upload a photo for such a pathetic showing. I adore Rampart, especially for it's difficulty. This was the first time i made it to the 3rd stage on lynx. Just to confirm, we CANNOT use the automatic continue, right? We need to accept Death Game Over (awesome death screen) without continuing.
  8. even an unfinished lynx version of MK would be better than that terrible movie they just released. heck, even a title screen with no gameplay would be better
  9. Definitely, assuming i have the time. I love being a part of the community even in my dorky, stupid way. But i also have a fear of offending people if i dont like the game, or it feels unfinished, or whatever. I believe in being honest, but i dont want to trash anyone's baby! The theme of the dorky presenter and the obsession with defining homebrew was an honest response to fair criticism/feedback some of you gave me after the others. And i deserved it. I was conflating terms and not appreciating the nuance. Learned a lot from that, actually. I want to continue to do funny/weird videos as time allows. It's partly an excuse for me to experiment with video techniques. Message me if you want help with things and if time allows, i'll be glad to.
  10. Im usually fairly decent at video games but im clearly gonna have to practice harder for this one. starting cold i expected to at least have a respectable score---but i havent cracked 10k after a few tries. Harder than i recalled.
  11. same as others, Mac only. If this were available on Mac i'd give it a whirl. I have "programming experience" but only if you could a few years as a kid working on Apple II in basic, and then a single semester of C++ which convinced me i should not pursue computer programming as a major.
  12. My latest---and certainly most "adventurous" (some might say disturbing) "homebrew" review video is up on youtube for anyone who wants to check it out. Definitely welcome comments and feedback on youtube (welcome new subs for sure) or here in AA. I just genuinely appreciate anyone who bothers to look at my silly nonsense.
  13. its fun to be a casual-yet-enthusiastic lynx player. I never even heard of this game. Maybe will pick it up--gotta keep myself in the HSC running
  14. AM I TO BE MEMORIALIZED IN THE HIGH SCORE HALL OF FAME??????? :blows kisses to audience, gives the queen's wave: Turbo Sub, truly, a game for the ages
  15. I've been eagerly awaiting the announcement that one of you has trounced my score by some slim margin
