Well, Ok.

I'll let it go, but for this week, ZilchSr, you are relegated to my fifth Best Friend, tho that's usually a "group" I don't have numbers on.

Bite Me.

 

Sheesh.

 

(anyone taking this too seriously doesn't know me well, I swear, but I still had to say something...)

 

Friggin River Raid?

There are hundreds and hundreds of 2600 games, and you are making us play River Raid...

 

I guess that's what I get for Checkers...

 

:D

 

A little more seriously-I do have a new patch connection, that is willing to work with me, and River Raid is one I don't have, that he has available to me-wasn't a priority before, but I bet I purchase it before this week is up, so Thanks for that!

 

But not thanks for River Raid.

Again.

Bite Me.

 

*Edit*

Lol, the bonus points...

Not that anyone will do it, but Vocelli, you might want to consider also awarding that to anyone tying him, because...

You can't do better than perfect!!!

:D

River Raid (B/B)  -  63,180

 

I want to thank my friend and call him a d**k at the same time LOL!! Have never been great at this cart, but it's one that I've always wanted to seriously improve on! Now thanks to @ZilchSr, hopefully this will give me the push I need....step one, new PB!!

Oh heck yes! I love River Raid! Unfortunately I'm not very good at it (my all time personal best high score is only 39,340) but I'm still going to have a ton of fun playing this round, and I think I'll be really happy if I can just beat my current personal best score. Even if I can't though, it should still be a lots of fun playing. Great pick ZilchSr! :D

Whew! It took a good two and a half hours of practice tonight but I finally beat my all time high score of 39,340 in River Raid, and by a good 50,000 points! Even if I don't improve any more past this I'm happy for this round. :) 

 

 

River Raid (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 89,880

^  so close to a free man too

 

I know! I was on my last life, running low on fuel, and scrambling to shoot as many enemies as I could before my fuel ran out trying to earn an extra life at 90,000. Just didn't quite make it though :lol:

100K is an awesome goal itself, I hope you get it!

I have this "off the shelf", but still haven't made myself play it yet, am hoping for 75k myself...

:D

I need technical help from the experts here.

 

My CX-40, connected through my Stelladaptor, into my PC's USB just stopped working yesterday.  I hadn't changed any emu settings.  When I unplug the Stelladaptor USB from the PC USB while Stella is on the menu screen, the emu just closes.  If I do it while River Raid is on the screen, nothing happens.  Then, when I press the joystick button the emu closes.

 

When I plug the Stelladaptor USB into the PC USB, the PC makes the chime that means it recognizes the device.

 

River Raid works with keyboard controls, so I know the game is actually running.

 

If I can't get this working my season is going to come to a crashing halt.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggested solutions.
