Total Carnage - 3,864

Not having much success playing with Virtual Jaguar.

It seems to crash after playing for a few minutes.

This game crashed on me about 8 times which was really starting to piss me off.   Cleaned the cart and going to give it another play through this weekend.  The cart did have some dirt on the contacts (how i have no idea) so hopefully that was it.   Actually had a higher score; was on the second level with the jets flying by but then the game crashed.  Oh well, having fun and using the keypad is the way to go!  It's rough on the overlay, i pushed the one i used out on the edges several times, you almost need a thicker one for this game...might try and make something custom from a thicker piece of plastic.

I've literally only just got this from Carl at Songbird.  Mad game that needs a pro-controller to make the most of it.  Good fun though.

 

See; i used to feel that way; but there is no great way to control it with the pro controller either.  The shoulder buttons help but it's still awkward.

 

Having much better luck using the 360 degree fire with the number pad this time around.

Here's my first decent score - 61,577

 

 

Pro Controller support is horrible.  The number pad is still the best option.

Of course I screwed up my initials for high score club. I played a quick little game to re-familiarize with the game (NUK) and then a full game after, actually got the best score I ever had. Yeah, the controls on this game suck no matter the controller, I really wish Songbird would have coded some different control schemes into it. The way the SNES did it was perfect, or even making a second controller act as firing. Oh well, no way to change it now. Still a great game and I really like this version.

 

I've seen lots of people over the years praise the pro-controller for this game, but I find the scheme to be un-intuitive for the most part. Saying that, it is still an improvement over the standard controller. Since the game utilizes the keypad for an 8-way firing scheme, it actually makes it confusing for the 6-button support up top. You see, the top buttons (Z,Y,X) all shoot down (7,8,9 on the keypad), which I have never been able to get used to, I still get confused even now, so I don't use them. I do use the shoulder buttons to shoot left/right, those are the only buttons that make ergonomic sense to me.

I try to play through most of the game with the shoulder buttons, this allows me constant access to the C button (bombs) when I need it. I can't use the keypad all the time, it hurts my thumb, and also makes it very difficult to hit the C button. 

 

Something interesting, and I know I've pointed it out before, if you look at my screenshot here, underneath HIGH SCORES you'll see the flamethrower and the jetpack sprites. The Jetpack is not in this game. It would normally show up on the airbase raid where you have to blow up all the fighter planes. It allows you to hover over all those damn mines on that stage.
