I took part in a similar contest over at Digital Press many years ago.  I was the 2nd place finisher (2nd one to collect all the patches) and my prize was a copy of Activision's Decathlon...signed by its creator, David Crane.

I don't think I have the ability to go through all that again.  LOL!  Good luck!

LOL!  I've had it for a few years now.  I haven't had much time to play it, but I might submit a few scores in the contest to keep y'all on your toes.  ;)

Don't worry, though...I'm not going for the X-Arcade.  I used to have one and got rid of it once I got the cab.  ;)

After losing my shields and taking another hit, my shields reset to full, so I stopped playing  Score when taking fatal hit was 195,555 and can be seen a few seconds before the end of the video.

I'll be adding the other difficulty levels and computer A.I. difficulties to the database today.  Just wanted to get this one on the board.

I've always loved this game.  Of course, it's much more fun with 2 human players, but the computer does give you a run for your money on the higher levels.  Good fun!

This is my first submission using OBS and I really like it!  The videos are much smaller in size compared to ATube catcher (almost 50% smaller) and I can record the audio without using the mic, which is really nice too.  :)

You're too funny!  And thanks for the kind words on my gameplay.  This version of Ms. Pac is probably the toughest version I've played.

What do you use to record your videos?  I use ATube Catcher, but I have to turn the mic off when there are folks around, so my vids don't have audio.  Would like to look into something else.  I tried the video recording within CCS64,but that really doesn't work well.

I actually had to break down and look at the manual to figure out how to make the game option changes (like bounce on and fast asteroids.)

I totally get what you are saying about it not being in the rules.  However, since the power is really in the hands of the voters, their personal feelings come into play.  I can't tell you how many no votes I've received for my photo evidence because there was no video of actual gameplay, even when I had good photo evidence.  Like you said, even though the rules don't say I have to provide videos, some people won't vote yes without one.

It IS a fun site and I hope you'll stick around.  There are some really nice folks here and the contests are great.  Yes, there are a few bad apples in the bunch, but I've learned to just ignore them.  I hope you'll stick around and give it another try.

So far, yes.  I wasn't aware of the 1200xl either until I saw it for myself (and ultimately bought the beast.) 

After doing some research, I found that the 1200xl came out before the 600xl and 800xl.  But other than a few minor differences, it runs just like the other xl computers.  For example, the 1200 xl does not have built-in basic.

It's a pretty sweet machine, though.  :)

Yes.  When you delete a picture/video from your iPad, it doesn't get deleted.  It gets moved to a "recently deleted" folder.  It will sit there for 30 days before it gets deleted.  You can go into your "albums" and open up the "recently deleted" folder.  There, you can permanently delete them without having to wait for the 30 days.

I'm adding a pic of the Flashcart because it plugs into the side of the Atari 1200xl, not on top like the 600xl or 800xl.

Advanced was the default setting on boot up, so I played in Advanced.  I tried using my laptop webcam to shoot video, but the picture was so blurry, I gave up on that.  Pics only for my hardware scores.

I didn't shoot video for this because this score was attained for the Atariage 8-bit High Score Club competition...where video isn't needed.  I guess I'll just have to take the hit for not posting a video here.

That's the tricky part...when you're very good at a game, ppl are going to want videos.  I, myself have fallen into that trap with some games, so I just post videos as often as I can.  With emulation, it's a lot easier to put up a video.

I'm going to be trying out this "Free Screencast" program with my laptop camera and see how that works with shooting video of real hardware gaming.

Welcome to Highscore.com, Dugger.

As for making videos, if you have a laptop with a webcam, you can use Free Screencast.  I just downloaded it and am learning to use it.  Just point your laptop at your TV screen, hit record and you're off.  :)

Not sure what I'm doing wrong with ATube Catcher.  Can't seem to get a full screen for making videos.  I turn the mic off because I'm usually watching TV or talking to the wife while playing, so there's not much need for sound.  So, to make sure you know it's me, I'm starting the video with my Highscore.com username/avatar showing.  :)

@TheTrickster:

Hi Trickster,

I appreciate your explanation and I respect what you are trying to do, but allow me to respond to the two areas that would trigger a no vote from you:

Yes, editing the picture with a watermark of my username is very easy to to...that's why I do it.  I explain exactly what I do in the flowchart thread.  But if I were cheating then that means out there on the internet is the same picture above, minus the watermark.  Doing a simple google image search would show that no such image exists.  That's just as easy to do. 

As for the video requirement, I've been down that route.  I go into that in the flowchart thread.  While I have the tech knowhow, not everyone does.  What's more is that I've found that certain video cap programs work well with some emus and not others.  ATubeCatcher works well with Stella and JNES, but I can't get it to work very well with CCS64. And finally, even after going to all the trouble to record a video, stating my name, game and settings and posting it to YouTube, it would still get a no vote because it wasn't a split screen, showing me actually playing the game.  So I made the decision to stop making videos.  It wasn't worth the time and energy if it was still going to trigger no votes.

I thank you for your explanation and I do appreciate the yes vote.  You are a respected member of the community and I do appreciate you trying to make the voting process more consistent.  I hope you don't take my comments offensively...this is not my intention at all.  I'm just trying to offer a POV from the other side.  :)

Well, looks like we both had a last minute rush of votes.  :)  I can't catch you now.  You're 20 ahead of me and I only have 17 possible trophies.  Great competition!  I look forward to the next round of contests.  :)

The score is hard to read, but there's no way to clear it up.  You score 5 points for each second after you clear a board, so the last digit can only be a 0 or a 5.

Sweet!  This handheld has an interesting story behind it.  I remember back when I was in elementary school.  I was probably in 2nd or 3rd grade and some kid brought this to school and was showing it off.  I so badly wanted to play it, but he wouldn't let anyone play it.  I was sooo jealous of him.

And now, 35 years later, I finally have my own!  LOL!  laugh

The yellowing wasn't off the charts bad.  It was light yellow.  Yes, I took a magic eraser and plain water.  After giving it a good scrubbing, I took a cloth and dampened it with hydrogen peroxide and wiped down the whole console.  I went over every key with the magic eraser too, which really brightened them up.  :)  I've added some pics to my evidence.  :)

You can snag one relatively cheap off eBay.  This one sat in my old bedroom for many many years.  When I went home last summer, I stumbled across it.  Still works.  The 1541 was hit or miss, so I grabbed an SD2IEC drive emulator and I'm back in business.  :)

It's a gaming store that sells used video games/consoles.  They have everything from Xbox to pong systems and everything in between.  I actually traded an Atari 2600, a Coleco Gemini and a couple pong units for an Xbox 360 there. 

The Atari Pinball unit was on sale for $85!  I can get one for half that cost on Ebay.

I'm pretty sure you were just teasing, but here's my take:

Since everyone has the opportunity to play the hacks via emulation, I don't see why they wouldn't/shouldn't be allowed.  wink

With regard to this particular hack, It's MUCH harder, IMO.  Can't see the enemies very well...and it seems like they teleport around the board sometimes.  smiley

That's because some of these games do not offer high score initials on them.  What's more is that JNES allows to capture video, but the file format is not one that the website accepts.  So, I'm pretty much relegated to doing screen caps and putting my username on them.

@McKong:  You will find there are some folks here that are pretty strict about what counts as legit evidence.  I've posted scores with photos, my screen name, my initials and video, stating my name and STILL get no votes.  So, don't get discouraged if you see no-votes.  Even the "no" votes go toward passing the score through.  :)

It's not too hard to clean the paddles if they're jittery. There are how-to's online, but I can provide a link here if needed. 

Even the cleanest paddles will still jitter a little with the Stelladapter.  I know I can do better on real hardware.  Gonna have to get crackin'!  :)

I have several sets of paddles.  If you want a set, I'd be happy to clean a pair and send them to you.

Yeah, I tried that, but it still only records in the top left corner.  It's not too big a deal since the whole playfield can be seen.  I'll try selecting a smaller section and shrinking the playfield to fit.  Maybe that will make the recording look full screen. 

Thanks for the advice.  :)

The SD2IEC runs about $75 U.S. Dollars.  You can find them on EBay.  It plugs into the same port as a standard 1541 drive.  It gets its power off the cassette port, so there's also a line you plug into there.  I absolutely love mine.  I have the entire library at my disposal now.  It also works with the Epyx Fastload Cart, so my load times are super fast.

I highly recommend getting one.  :)

That's pretty sweet!

I went home last summer to visit my mother and when I was going through my old closet, I found my old C64/1541 Drive and my huge box of disks.  I couldn't wait to get home and try it all out.  Everything worked, except my keyboard had a couple busted off keys.  The 1541 drive kept conking out after about 30 minutes of use.  So, I nabbed a C64 off Ebay and bought the 1541 drive emulator (SD2IEC) so I can play all my old games again on real hardware.  That, along with this awesome site has rekindled my love of these classics!  :)

When it comes to the "Atari 8-bit vs. C64" discussion, I've always felt that Atari wins in the graphics department, where C64 is king in the audio department.  Despite only having 3 channels of audio, versus Atari's 4 channels, the C64 seems to do more with less.  Atari's graphics (especially where arcade ports go) seem much more spot on IMHO.
