HSC8 Round 14: Threshold - Crossfire - Lunar Leaper - Marauder

Recommended Posts

I haven't found a version of this that works on my XL yet. I've downloaded the translator but couldn't get any of the ATRs to load properly.

 

I've played the first round!

just tested on my XL (PAL) - works ok - try some of the Atarionline.pl ATRs (think there the ones! I downloaded last) use the particular translator from post 1 - others don't seem to work - make sure you disable basic when booting this. The game does run okish without the translator but the text is screwy. Hope this gets you working. :)

 

There's also one on VJetnam not tested it :ponder:

 

Has anyone got an OS/B XL :?:

 

think I've just had a brainwave re the LL scoring :idea:

Introducing the Threshold Bonus challenge - not that the game isn't tricky enough already but from the title screen (where you see the word Threshold!) Press 3 for Fast with Starfield on - Top score 1pt bonus... can I get an oooh!

 

Zylon please can you confirm your score. If this level 3 makes your scores more comparable perhaps this will be a better challenge for you ;)

 

If anyone else is struggling loading LL please post.

If you like, you can just use my VIC_20 score for regular Threshold as that version is much harder than C64. It also appears to be more like your 800 versions. Both ports were played with starfield on BTW.

If anyone were willing to sell me an NTSC Threshold cart for my 600xl at a fair price, I would buy one and submit a game when I got it. I do play the Atari carts whenever possible.

Played on default settings with starfields on:

Threshold-

C64 Disk- 1,027,000

C64 Cart- 1,001,800

VIC-20 Cart- 208,500

Lunar Leaper (ugly!): 340

OK I'm springing up to defend(er) Lunar Leeper (think we have a bit of Zone Patrol fever going on! another game that takes a little time to work out)... the game is nice once you crack it and I think I've just cracked it! The leepers only give you 20pts so try being nice to them, this creates a nice joystick jockeying game, quite intense... just got onto the disk's scoreboard...

 

Marauder just blew at 119K it but pic as I didn't have one before

Crossfire 11,040

Threshold 67,000

Lunar Leeper 40,720 ... in #1 slot :grin:

 

@Zylon thanks for that I'll put you down for just the 200K on Threshold :-D

 

[edit - 4got PIC attached showing artifacting I get on PAL CRT TV in Marauder - :cool:

I'll stick with the VIC for this round, then. :) C64 version doesn't have alternate levels that I know of. :? Only the start or player 1-2 functions seem to exist.

Vic-20 can be started with number keys 1-9 for play on that level.

Another leap ahead on the Lunar surface, although just a small step compared to trbb's Gigantic Leap for mankind against the Leepers :o

 

I topped the preset scoreboard this time :)

 

21,420

I snapped this shot before my last ship went down, and was immediatley reminded of the Alan Parson's Project album, "Eye in the Sky". An Alan Parson's soundtrack added in all of its 8-bit glory might be a great LL hack!

so the eye can read your mind too :o

 

made a tiny improvement to Threshold 68,900 and had a crack at the bonus challenge on fast (press 3 on title screen) 35,500. I'd like to see someone (M?!) tweak the speed of the game to somewhere between the two settings for us in PAL land.

Anyone tried any of these games on an 800 yet :?: I'm still wondering if the sounds are even more freaky and use the keyboard buzzer. The giant eye exploding is creepy and Marauder makes me jump as you don't expect to be hit then BLAM!

Goochman - take a listen when the leapers consume a man - Ultima III sound effect :cool:

 

Welcome Vandal968 :thumbsup: Yes Crossfire certainly has that one more go factor. Unfortunatley I seem to now be playing itn with a gung ho style that is fun but not good for completing the third level.

 

Sloopy - any difference in the various creatures :?:

 

Better do another table too me thinks...

Hope everyone is up and running - post if you need any help :)

For the benefit of the new players if we have 18+ players for a game there are additional scoring positions. Feel free to suggest games you might want to play on the Season 8 Games List This round is also a 'catch up' round so you can play any games from this season to earn extra points. Remember we have an extra week to play this round folks :cool:

Got to another level on Marauder: 137,500 :)

Anyone know what the squiggle after the bonus countdown is (for) :?:

and how many people are playing crossfire on the keyboard?

I am. :)

I think it's easier with a keyboard.

incidentally in Crossfire on the A8 (when looking for the pause key - which is P), I found that space moved you up, Control and Up fired up, and 3 fired down... can't seem to find any other controls. Wonder why these are coded :?:

 

Also discovered the 'glide and shoot' or maybe the 'crossfire' move where you move up or across and keep fire held and then shoot down all the rows/columns as you go along :cool:

 

Threshold bonus(option 3): 144,200 (vic-20)

 

Played and completed. :cool:

did you say that ver had 9 levels? You need to play the zylon challenge on level 9 ;)

 

Voting open for round 15
