Dinosaurs are back!!

 

Sorry for not being constant, after fighting with the company where I try to buy the computer and Fed Ex ( Each of them blaming the other one ) I finally cancel the transaction, I hope to get a new computer this week.

Sorry for not being constant, after fighting with the company where I try to buy the computer and Fed Ex ( Each of them blaming the other one ) I finally cancel the transaction, I hope to get a new computer this week.

 

I somewhat feel your pain. Last week my MAME PC just stopped displaying a picture. I'm guessing either a mobo or video card. "No problem," I said, "I'll just toss in my spare MAME PC." So I did that and it worked great... for about 45 minutes, when the HDD in that computer started making this hideous clanking sound and the computer stopped working.

 

I took the HDD from the first computer and dropped it in the 2nd, and after a bit of churning, the system actually fired up... but is now saying my Windows license is invalid. I tried a full refresh of Windows on the "new" hardware and that didn't fix it. Ah, the joys of trying to keep 10 year-old computers going...

 

For the time being, I might have to run my MAME cabinet off my tablet, ha.

Cadillacs and Dinosaurs: 73,000. Sorry I wasn't able to grab the screen capture in time. Seeing as I didn't make it very far, I'm guessing that this is not a particularly high score for this game. I'm going to try to get a little better before I post a PIIT30s score.

Seems the unreliable PCs are the only reason I'm somehow on the top of the table :P

 

C'nD, eh....can't get better than that. Well, apparently brawlers are my favouite genre...time to put this to a test. Didn't work quite well in case of Golden Axe....

Prehistoric Isle in 1930: 25,100. Gotta start somewhere, I guess. Thank God for all that experience with Mystic Riders and R-Type or else I wouldn't be able to handle a side-scrolling shooter of this intensity (still prefer Scramble and Super Cobra, but that was my era).

Some early scores: CAD: ~221K, Prehistoric: 39,810 49,900. I can't really see the score in CAD past the ending. Is there no attract mode/score table?

 

CAD is one of the most beautiful 2d games ever, for sure. Also love Prehistoric, my kind of shoot'em up.

Cadillacs and Dinosaurs 183,000 and nope, no screenshot :( -- the score just disappears before I have a chance. Will keep on trying when/if I top that score.

Boy, are those bosses in CaD hard or what. Can seldom get through the first one without losing a life. For now my score ~440,000.

 

I love Prehistoric Isle but for some reason it really whups my ass. Can't get past the second boss. I wish there was a button to spin the power up in other direction. Actually MAME lists 3 buttons for Player 1: one for fire - one for spin - and the third one? I remapped it but nothing happens.

Well, I amazingly managed to defeat the 2nd and 3rd bosses in Prehistoric Isle the first time I encountered them, but I'm having trouble repeating that in successive playthroughs.

 

Prehistoric Isle: 141,200
