5200 HSC Season 14 Round 2 - Donkey Kong Jr.

Are you using a standard 5200 controller?  I played this a lot on a Atari 65XE back in the day and don’t recall it being an unfair challenge.  But perhaps the non-self-centering controllers make it feel that way?

I use an ultimate joystick and play via Altirra.

Interesting!  I wonder where the problem is... the emulator?  The digital-to-analog conversion code that was added?  The controller potentiometer inside the console?  Dunno, but I sure recall the original computer game to be fine.

The main reason is probably my modest skills.

Lol!  Yeah, it’s a more exacting game than I remembered!  I just tried a few rounds on both the 5200 and a 800XL and there really wasn’t much difference. The big difference was my lack of skills compared to when I played this game a whole lot in the mid 80s.  I did get past that third screen, but not much further.

Doh!  I forgot to submit my 31,100.  Not that it would matter much anyway.  Wish I had gotten into the round earlier.  Felt like I wad starting to get somewhere on it.

Not that it matters, but your title screen is the 8bit (option, start, select).
