The Official 2016 COPTER COMMANDOS High Score Competition

Recommended Posts

I think I figured it out...... Jzintv is not compatible with Win7 - works fine on my netbook w/ WinXP!

 

My first try:

Of course I have to figured out how to change the fire button. My fingers were on top of one another during the first try. (fire button was set as right shift and on my netbook the directional arrows are right below that)

 

I will make another attempt........

it works on windows 7 and windows 10 for me.

Hey,

 

Well I figured somebody should flip the score over on the rom edition....so today I gave it ago and just finished doing so.

 

My final score was: 6,723,300

 

The score flipped at 6,553,500

 

And I flipped the level counter twice over at level 256.

 

Here is the first flip after level 256:

Here is the second flip after level 256 the second time:

And here is the last shot I got after the score rolled over to 0 and started up again:

Sadly as soon as the game ended I tried to get a shot of the code but the game immediately went to the title screen and only showed the code for only a split second :(

I hope your ok with this rev, I played 5 hours approximately. And have many more pictures.

 

Here the final score shows on the title screen after the roll over:

Also I found that after the score rolls over you no longer receive any extra guys at any amount of score it seems. Interesting!

 

Also do I get a bonus?....I played this while having a 5mm kidney stone :P hehe ouch they suck!

Stupus,

I played in cartridge and it appears that score flips at same score then (6,553,500). I was at 6,552,000+ & then cleared board so never knew exact score that it flipped. As for extra guys, in the cartridge I'm pretty sure guys are awarded every 10,000 points even after flipping score over.

Yep, it seems they flip the score at the same point (cart/rom). At first I didn't notice the lack of extra guys awarded, but I definitely confirmed it after the first few thousand points after the flip. It doesn't seem you get anymore at any point after the flip on the rom.

I also never noticed any invincibility at an point, but that was what was indicated when using the rom. :)

stupus,

Thanks for post. Yeah I'm not sure I experienced invincibility on the cartridge either. And it may be the same on cartridge with regards to extra lives I really don't remember? I played about 104,000+ points past the flip to zero and still had 6 extra copters. Don't recall if I was perfect all that time or if extra copters were still awarded every 10,000 points. Maybe next person to flip can confirm if cartridge does or not - I thought it did but am not 100% & my left thumb will not allow verification lol:-)

Yeah, it could be easy to miss the extra lives thing....

I stopped trying as hard when I flipped the score and after I lost 2 lives I noticed they were not getting replenished. So I played on a while to verify and figured by 160000 I would have got 1 if I was ever going to. ;)

Yep, this game was classic. My earlier games were remix. I don't think I could flip the score on remix. Kudos to you for doing so, I think your the only one that did ;)

Maybe, but I am definitely not the only one who could do this :) I am pretty sure Pimpmaul could have gone for nuts and to be honest: I also think everyone could do it with a bit training and patience :)

thats a long time of playing. Hand crampingly long. i played it in remix commander up to the level flipping back to 0 just to find out what level it flipped on, then i played a few levels after that then quit. I do like this game. I enjoy the games that remind me of my childhood days of atari 2600. Edited by pimpmaul69

Ignorama,

I agree with your post. For me I only hooked up my system this past weekend & once I started a game on Cadet level it simply takes a long time so I wanted to flip the game over to zero. That said, I have no doubt that I or others could flip the game on Remixed or Commander mode. It simply would involve a cautious approach like you said. Overall I will play Remixed in future game but like the fact that Cadet offers younger players and even others who want to play with a little reckless abandon and speed. The cautious approach would be a bit tedious. Overall it's good that the game has a few different options to make more challenging.

Good job, everyone. Sorry I didn't participate. I've been busy in real life and was somewhat intimidated by the prospect of 'rolling over scores' and '3-6 hour marathons'. I might try to play a bit on Sunday when I try out MD, though :)

 

A big thanks to Rev for releasing this game, hosting the competition, offering up some pretty neat prizes. And, congrats to the winners!
