I hope you also had some fun. :)

 

How far did you come?

 

I guess you died somewhere while going down in planet 6 (just before discovering the "deadly something"). Am I right?

HELP!

 

Everyone gets to play this cool game, but I can't get it to work. I'm using some old Windows version of Stella. Let me look... Version 0.7a. :shock:

 

Here's what I'm looking for. I need a 2600 emulator that will run on Windows 2000 in a window (not full screen). :roll:

 

What do you guys suggest? :?

 

Thanx,

Try the newest version (2.6!) of PCAEWin. It supports Thrust and IIRC should run in a window. The emulation is not 100% perfect, but it's ok.

yes' date=' you have another few days until sunday to send in score.

 

[b']but this is now only for allready registered pilots, and only for the numbers #5 to #10.[/b]

 

the winners (according to the rules we gave out) are definitive. there won't be no new "winner" after this round.

 

this is no second round and there will be no new winner ... and no discussions about that: people who want to start long threads about it, are asked not to participate.

 

it's only the opportunity to get a lower number.

Hi!

 

First off, it's sort-of a thrill to have won 4th place! Yay! ......I'm conveniently ignoring the total # of contest entry submissions.....

 

Seeing as I'm #4, do I actually win anything?

 

Do I now have an opportunity to buy a Limited Edition (#s 1-50) copy of the game?

 

Steve

Almost simply out of principle:

 

What Happened To My Email?

 

I sent in a score putting me 500 odd points out of third place, abiding by all rules. Albert / Alex might be able to clear this up, and I'm surprised they haven't already.

 

Thanks

Only if you had reserved a copy of Thrust+ already. Then you could choose a lower number between 4 and 10.

 

So the prolonged contest is only interesting for those who want a lower number for their registered copy.

 

But I'd still be happy to see some more great high scores. Or somebody discovering the "deadly something". :D

Sorry, I do not appear to have ever received this email. I just went back and double-checked my inbox and do not have any messages from [email protected] or any with the subject, "Thrust+ High Score Contest III". That subject suggests you sent more than one email. If you did, I never received any of them..

 

Can you try sending it again? Send it to [email protected] and send me a private message here after you've done that so I know you've sent it..

 

Thanks,

 

..Al

So like, now that I got # 3, what's gonna go down with my old serial number? Does that go to one of the people on the waiting list for something?

it was quite tricky to make the reservations ... a total of 47 were reserved, since i had to leave 3 carts over in case 3 non-registered users wins one of the sets .... of those, only 40 could reserve a number, since i had to leave out 10 for the contest ... now one of the three remaining ones goes to chris since one of the reservations was canceled ...

@ Thomas

 

Yes - fun too of course :D

 

And a second yes - i've died on stage 6 of the reverse grav. but i was not far away from the end of the tunnel - only a few thrusts .

 

I've played on stella using my sidewinder gamepad and i'm absolutely sure if i had a more precise steering i had done this stage also !

 

Maybe i'll top my score when playing the original Cart on my Atari using the footpedal set - yeahh would be really funny 8)

 

@ Fish

 

Na - hab ich nicht gesagt ich hoffe noch auf den ersten Platz :wink:

Bin allerdings enttäuscht das so wenige mitgemacht haben :(

Gruß nach Berlin

Tom

BUMP!

 

Today is the end of the prolonged highscore contest. Use your second (and last!) chance for a low number. And remember:

 

Every score has a chance :!:

If you have it reserved, I see no reason as to why ya shouldn't try to get a lower number.

 

BTW, is it too late to get mine signed?

I tried playing this with an emulator, but I don't have a joystick, and I pretty much sucked playing with the keyboard (I managed to pick up 2 items...yeehaw!). That's why you never got a picture from me. But I can't believe you only got 4 submissions after so much interest. So maybe I'll take a picture of my sucky score anyway.

Tschuldigung, hattes es versucht, aber es gelang mir nicht Bilder zu machen. Wenn ich Print gedrückt hatte, und sie in Paint Eingefügt hatte war die Punktezahl leider nicht mehr zu lesen.

 

Und auserdem habe ich es nicht geschfft überhaupt etwas beim Spiel zu erreichen. Habe ein bischen probiert, wusste aber eigentlich nicht, was ich machen musste. In der Anleitung habe ich irgendwie auch nichts gefunden.

 

Und ich wäre bestimmt nicht so gut gewesen, selbst wenn ich vielleicht irgendwann gewußt hätte wie man es spielt. :D
