5200 OE HSC Challenge 06/2022 Pole Position

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Our game in June, is the classic Pole Position. Play selection Namco Speedway 4lp, using real 5200 sysyems and Atari Mfg controls. -1 HSC pt for use of period analog sticks, such as Wico. Namco Speedway is middle difficulty, and not too long on 4lp. It's finishable, and should allow for a wide range of scores. SD loaders/flashcarts running original Rom, are the only modern exceptions Pics preferred but not required, except for HSC wins and records. Round ends when month does.

 

Current HSC records- Bust em for a bonus point each! 

I will defend, as time allows, lol

Does the qualifying time have to be the same run as your high score?  If not, then my best qualifying time is 60"91 and my top score is 31,100.

When does the new Season start? I've been away from the forums for awhile and just aquired a 5200 so I'd love to highly participate in the next fresh one!

This “Original Equipment only” season typically runs Jan-Dec, but we might be on the verge of starting a new standard season (emulators and any controllers allowed.)   Feel free to vote in this poll for a quick return to 5200 HSC action… 

 

 

I’m encouraged to hear someone new wanting to play!

Thank you good sir! Yes I've been trying to brush up on it a bit more in between work hours and the wife and son. But I would be totally in the game for it! Hope to join in soon!

If you have original CX-52 controllers in working order go ahead and put in a score for Pole Position. Nobody would mind you jumping in right now.

That's a cart I actually don't own yet. Otherwise I'd be all in! I've been raiding some rivers this evening just obtained the cart today hit 62k on my 2nd run. Hoping to start grabbing more carts to be able to participate!

Nope. You can cherry pick your best ones

Still little out of breath, but rest seems back to normal. It got me good, as I hadn't been eating well the first 2 weeks of june, due to minor jaw surgery on a bone ridge on side on gumline. The irony of being down the same week as Mom, when she fell ill last year, was not lost on me. My result was much better though. :) I did my monthly qualify shooting yesterday, and felt like I'd run a race after, and took 4hr nap, lol

I uploaded a conversion you might want to try, on your "when to start" poll. I saw there was some interest in sports games on 5200.

Glad you're mostly back to normal... hope you are back to 100% soon!

Thank you!  400/800 Basketball conversion, right?  Do you prefer it to the RealSports 5200 prototype?

Graphically, it's not as good, but seems to play better. it also makes use of all 4 ports on the system. Another perk, is the really annoying timer noise in RS B-ball is not present.

I've been travelling all month and then wound up with covid, too, so it's taken me this long to sit down with my beloved OE.

 

This game's a weird one.  For one, it seems that my laps get worse the more I play (both my top scores are from my first attempt).  Second, I don't remember cussin' this much playing it as a kid!  Maybe I just didn't know as many words back then?

Best qualifying time: 58”69


Best score: 58,400


I tried dozens of times to achieve Pole Position and simply could not do it with the CX-52.  Oh, well.

Technically it is July, but I improved my qualifying time to 59"58 and my score to 43,200.  I never could finish the third lap.

I'm going to have to omit that one, as the month did end. I screwed up and thought I had another day myself, but mine wouldn't count either, lol. I'd gotten up early to play this morning, and figured it out in my emails. Fear not, we'll do this again someday, and the regular HSC runs it as well. :)
