Hello there! I'm new here, and I came to ask few questions to the mighty atari fans out there! I'm from a scoring website https://www.video-games-records.com/home.html (which I highly recommend you if you want to show your scores on every atari systems, or more), and I was wondering what was the main differences between games that are in all these platforms (2600/5200/7800). Let me explain you: when I propose a new game on the website, the game will be tidy with games from the same system (2600, jaguar...) but sometimes you can link some games when they are the same (for instance, games that are on PS3 and PS4 will be both add on the same platform, together). So, I was wondering what was the differences between the games that are on 2600, 5200 and 7800, and especially, what are the differences in the SCORING itself? For example, Joust or Ms-Pac Man both came on the 3 systems. Are they the exact same game? Or are they different? What about the gaming itself, is it easier to score/play on a 7800 system or 5200 than on a 2600? It's confusing, because you can play your 2600 games on the 7800. To conclude, my major question is: are the games different? Does something change in the way of playing (with the controller for instance) ? And if not, should I regroup both games (for instance Moon patrol) in 1, or add 2 on differents platforms? Thanks for clarifying this, if you know more! I have all these systems, but I can not fix my atari 7800, for a reason I ignore (even if I follow every tutorial out there to clean/repear it), and my atari 2600 is still functional. Great to see so many still pationated guys here! Cheers!
Season 13 Schedule: BASIC STRUCTURE OF THE JAGUAR HSC Rounds will last two weeks, starting and ending on Sundays. New players are welcome to join at any point! Only games with trackable scores will be played in the competition; Certain games that were a nuisance (like the scores appearing for only a split-second in Dino Dudes) have been left out completely. Season 11 begins on 8/26/18 and will last 12 rounds Some incentive to play? Provided I am not a complete broke-ass at the end of the Season, I will be providing at least the first-place player with a gift of some kind. If I'm doing well at the moment, possibly the top three players. In Season 1, Austin handed out a few online gift certificates to the top three players; In Season 2, he provided the top winner with a CIB Jaguar game to add to his collection; In Season 3, he handed out a few common titles from my personal gaming collection to two of the top winners. I plain on keep it alive for future Season. RULES FOR PLAYERS Deadlines are firm (the Sunday night a round ends). However, that's not to say you shouldn't still submit a score if you miss the deadline. If you submit an entry after the round is over, you will still receive ONE participation point (the same amount of points as the lowest scoring players in any given round). For special bonus rounds, no participation points will be handed out if scores are not submitted by the deadline--these rounds are intended only for those who are constantly active in the Jaguar HSC. Any control method is fine. Custom Jag controllers (rotaries), Pro Controllers, and whatever else you can find are all fine. Anything goes as long as you're actually playing the game. Emulators ARE allowed, however, compatibility is rough at best at this point in time so it may be more trouble than it's worth (trust me!). Also, be sure to follow these basic rules if you decide to use emulation as a means of participation:A.) No save states; B.) No system-enhancing features (framerate or graphic enhancements that can boost or smooth the framerate); C.) If you find a game that runs much smoother an an emulator than original hardware, either figure out how to turn the boosting off, or use real hardware. Don't abuse bugs or farm points in any game. Abusing loopholes to get huge amounts of points without much work is unfair and against the rules Since we try to go on good faith here, screenshots are not necessary. However, it is still recommended you take a snapshot to ease any sort of doubt anyone may have. This is especially true if you manage a ridiculous, unbelievable score that the average person isn't likely to attain. I personally prefer that the highest scoring players include screenshots, and I reserve the right to disqualify a high score if things seem sketchy to me. THE SCORING SYSTEM For this Season , the method of scoring will be as following Player 1 scores 56,930; Player 2 scores 48,900; Player 3 scores 12,029; Player 5 scores 8,002; Player 6 scores 534; Player 1 receives 10 points; Player 2 receives 8 points; Player 3 receives 6 points; Player 4 receives 4 point; Player 5 receives 2 point; Player 6 receives 1 point; etc. TOP scoring players this season will not receive any extra points, as opposed to other season. With how the system is setup now, everything should even itself out throughout the course of the season.
