  4. Its because in that game, you score is your health/a timer, so it always goes down. If you die before completing a level, then your score will be really low. You have to complete a level (or the game) to get a high score. Highest score I've ever seen was around 13k for a completed game, so it definitely maxes out well before 1 mil.
  5. Current record is now officially 426, since Rogers' record was removed. http://www.twingalaxies.com/bugs/atari-2600-vcs/
  6. So basically he's not going to prove us wrong because he was being triggered by detractors? Does he need a safe space to perform those feats?
  7. I think the reason why is that so many of his scores were highly suspect. A good example was Fathom. His record was 1,110,500. Second place? 142
  8. No more 5.51 http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/175364-Dispute-Dick-Moreland-Atari-2600-VCS?p=945911&viewfull=1#post945911 Guess Twin Galaxies deserves our shirt now.

  11. Does the PacMan game in it follow the same patterns that are in the arcade? Also, what happened to the Colecovision Collection?
  12. So I've got some interest starting a Ms. Pac-Man tourney using the Tengen NES version because it has a 2 player simultaneous mode. Here are the preliminary rules: 4 out of 7 2 player competitive mode. Pac Booster off Map: Mini (the scrolling on the Standard map makes the 2 player mode kind of wonky) Difficulty: Normal Does this kind of tournament sound interesting? Trying to come up with some decent VS tournaments for the NES outside of sports games, and there's not a lot to choose from.
  13. Have a PS2/Action Replay question. I want to move some game saves from Game FAQs to my PS2 using AR Max. I have an 8gb flash drive, which I uploaded the saves too from my PC. I launched AR and it recognizes the USB but shows no files at all. I then reformatted the USB from FAT32 to just FAT, and repeated the process. Still not showing any files. I then found a 2gb flash drive (FAT) that I've had for 10 years, and put the save files on there. Again, the PS2 recognized the drive but didn't show any files. What can I do to get it to recognize my save files? They are .max files. I've tried this on a slim and fat system with no luck.
  14. Last year, I started a new series of events called the Retro World Series. I want to invited everyone at AtariAge to take part. Its going to be a lot of fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSFhHS7Oka4
  15. There is a coin credit button, but I want to leave it up for a bunch of people to play without having to keep loading it.
  16. I just recently acquired an original Super Pacman arcade and was wondering if there was an easy way to set it to free play. Is there a dip switch for it or does there require modification?
  17. Just wanted to introduce myself. I've created a new series of events called the Retro World Series. We are going to have quite a few Atari tournaments. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. 01/21/2016 Today, Hal Hawkins announced the first inaugural season of the Retro World Series. There will tournaments held across the country at various events as Satellite Tournament with the season finishing off at the Main Event on August 11-14 in Houston, TX. "I hope to create an opportunity for recreational and serious retro gamers alike to be able to take part in an event that's both fun and competitive," said Tournament Director Hawkins. "The retro gaming community has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years, and the Retro World Series wants to give this community the ability to enjoy retro games throughout the year with a great, big finale at the end." The Main Event will feature 12 versus tournaments for Atari, NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis. The Satellite Events will consist of high score, speed run, and versus tournaments.Players who compete in the events will earn points towards the Player of the Year award with a big cash prize awarded at the end of the Main Event to the winner. The Satellite Tournaments will be free to enter with prizes awarded to the winner and runner up. The winner also receives an entry into the Main Event tournament of their choice. Gameplay at the Satellite Tournaments will be recorded and uploaded after each event. The Main Event will be a $26 tournament entry. Cash prizes will be awarded in the Main Event, including trophies to each tournament winner. The Main Event will also be live streamed. There will be vendors and free play arcades at the Main Event, so guests and spectators are invited to join as well.
