Uh oh, I think I sold my XE gun when I sold my XEGS collection a year or two ago.  I thought I had another one, but apparently not... I do think Crossbow plays surprisingly well with a stick, so still one of my favorite 7800 games.  Getting warmed up...

Stick: 290,000

608,000 with a Europad and 500,500 with an XG-1.  I do not know what it is, but I cannot play the Desert level with the light gun.  The area in that level that I can fire is so small that to get through requires more luck than skill..

 

I wish I would have known this was the current game because I have been playing Crossbow the last few days and had better scores then, but I should be able to get a few more rounds in.

 

Slight improvement with the Europad to 674,500.

I want to make sure this doesn't come across negatively in the context of a written forum post, so let me say right up front: oyamafamily is a great player and a great community member.  His scores are amazing and should totally count.  Still, it doesn't seem right to categorize it as either Joystick or Light Gun for the bonus point, though.  Playing with a mouse is pretty different.  Nothing was stated in the rules starting this round, so to me it's up to toiletunes to decide whether it should count.  Better to discuss now before the end of the round, and maybe it's something to figure out next time around.

I will update the bonus point tonight, to include mouse as a third option. Thanks for the insight.

I think both of my scores should count since no one else has done an actual light gun score except for me. 

 

Sorry, for this round it's one or the other- but, that does give me a fun idea for a future round...

If I get a chance in the next couple of days I'm going to keep digging around to see if I can find that light gun I thought I had.
