MAME HSC - MID-SEASON REDEMPTION ROUND

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the mid-season redemption round.  PLEASE read this post before participating.  I know everybody hates reading the details, but work with me here.  :)

 

  • For the next two weeks feel free to work on improving your scores on up to (6) already-played games. 

 

  • If you wish to submit fewer than (6) that is fine.  If you're happy with your scores to date, feel free to enjoy a short break. 

 

  • You need not "commit" to game selections up front, but to make record-keeping more manageable, please avoid posting scores for more than (6) different games in this thread. 

 

  • Additionally, it would be appreciated if all submissions were "saved up" and best/final scores submitted in a single post rather than submitting a series of gradual improvements. 

 

  • Please ensure DIPs are set according to those listed in the original thread for the games you're playing.  If you're using the same MAME/ROMs/computer as before, this should already be set correctly unless you've changed it. 

 

I'd suggest we just use this thread for ongoing conversation on what we're playing and then sometime before the deadline everybody can post an official submission with all of their best/final redemption entries summarized (with screenshots).  This will make things much more manageable for your humble moderator. 

 

CALLING ALL NEW PLAYERS!  If you're seeing this thread and haven't participated in this competition yet, I will allow you to submit scores for all games for the duration of this round, so you can catch up and then proceed with the pack for the remainder of the competition. 

 

As a reminder there will be an additional redemption round - with similar rules - following round 9. 

 

 

Redemption Round ends: Sunday 9/27, 11:59pm PST

Just for everybody's reference, here are the entries so far.  The top one is the raw scores, and the bottom one shows the corresponding percentages.  In particular, the percentages table should help players select games that have the best chance of improving their position in the standings.

Rainbow Islands 335,400. Finally beat my RI score, albeit not by much. I still find beating the boss spider more a matter of luck than anything. Good news is I can pretty much do the first four levels in my sleep now.

While I should be focusing on the ones I kinda stunk at, I've been trying to push to the end on Tumble Pop and Devil World.    I do plan on improving that Twin Cobra score, though.  I know I can do much better than that.

I'm doing the same thing. I really don't think I'm going to get any better at Captain America or Renegade anyway, so I'd rather improve my score in games I actually enjoy and show promise at).

Welcome back, Bee... long time no game.  Get those scores in by next Sunday and please be sure to indicate which ones they are.  There will be another redemption round after round 9.

 

If you have game selections you want to enter into the pool (up to 5), post them in the suggestions thread.

I'm having trouble getting AvP and CapAmer running.  I have the ROMs provided.  Am I missing something?  Like Rush n Attack needs a parent ROM?

MAME ROMs sometimes change over time, which means you may experience incompatibility between the ROMs provided in this competition and the specific version of MAME you're running. 

 

All ROMs I'm adding to the threads for the various rounds are verified to run properly on MAME v0.139, so the surest way to ensure the ROMs will work is to just grab this MAME version.  It can be found here: http://www.progettosnaps.net/mameui/ 

 

That link has a whole history of past versions, just scroll down and grab 0.139 and you should be all set to use the ROMs provided for this competition.

I guess it's time to stop foolin' myself and admit that I really just don't have time to play in a HSC anymore. I was looking forward to some more Defender and RI, at the least, but the deadline is looming and I haven't fired up MAME even once.

Tumble Pop -- 888,800

 

Spent the whole time with this one, but I made it!   I leave a lot of points behind by going for a "reach the end" playstyle, but I wanted to finished on a single credit, so that worked out.

Congrats Razzie on the single coin completion.  Very impressive.  Tumblepop is now one of my new fav games.

Rush N Attack -- 314,400

 

Got a few rounds in this weekend.  Not a huge improvement, but those jump-kicking guys start coming fast n' hard during the second loop. 

 

In hindsight, probably should have spent that time on improving my Twin Cobra score.

Oh I'm not done with you Tumblepop. Now it's personal (which is to say that it's no longer within the boundaries of this competition and therefore no one will care).

Same here.  I hadn't heard of it prior to this HSC (to the best of my recollection), but it's easily been my most played game over the past few weeks.
