lol, whaaat? That seems like a pretty big flaw for an arcade game to have, haha. xD
If you're looking for a better screen capture program, try FFsplit. I use it for all of my recordings, and they always come out great, and ready to upload to YouTube. It's also totally free, so no watermarks or conversions required. You can even record at 60fps with it. Anyway, Hyperspin looks pretty interesting, I'll have to check that out. :)Nice score, too! I haven't played this game, but I might give it a shot at some point.
Looks legit to me. ^_^Anyway, not sure if you'd be interested or not, but I use a program called FFsplit for capturing my desktop for gameplay videos. It's free and works really well.
yup, like Oyama said, you made a typo on the score. Skipping for now. ^_^
Best run @ 4:18Score @ 7:54I kept whiffing on those ranged attacks in most of my runs, or I'd just hit one guy, which is pretty much a waste since it's the same amount of points as taking them out using melee. Ideally, you wanna get two or more guys with those ranged attacks. I haven't ever gotten more than 3 at a time, but it seems like the points just keep doubling for each guy you take out in a row with a ranged attack.
Best run @ 23:41Score @ 28:03I attempted to take an actual photograph with my sign & whatnot for this score, but I didn't realize I missed it, because it was blinking as I was taking the shot. Anyway, I hope the video will be enough. ^_^
Really odd that they'd put the Tetris name on this when it's clearly a sequel to Yoshi's Cookie, and doesn't seem to have anything to do with Tetris.Anyway, voting "Yes".
ahahaa, I never made that connection, lol. They totally do look like that. xD
Hmm... nope, I've had it set to public already.Does it play now? Perhaps it was still processing earlier.
In fact, now that I'm looking, yeah, the bonus is exactly 25 million points. How odd.
Score @ 3:02:32This was quite a fun run to do. You get quite a large bonus after the final boss, too, I'm not entirely sure what it's from, perhaps from the number of coins you've collected during the game?All I know is that I went from about 1 million up to 26 million after the end credits.
Ah, yeah, it could be one of those, too.
Best Run @ 7:00Score @ 11:54Ah, another Capcom arcade classic. First time playing this one, as well.Capcom's got a lot of great classic arcade games.
Best Run @ 5:22Score @ 8:51First time I've played the arcade version of this, as well. The controls in this one take some getting used to... even compared to the NES game. I think I mostly just got lucky with that last run, I still kind of don't know what I'm doing in this game, lol. I'll probably go back to this one eventually.
Gosh, this game is so cool. First time playing it. Really love the music in it, too, especially the little jingle whenever you start or respwan. I've got to work on learning the controls more, though.Best run @ 7:47Score @ 10:30
First time playing the arcade version of this. Not that I'm much better at the NES version.Best run @4:30Score @7:07
I've never played the Frankenstien table before, but I'm reading that it plays a version of "Frankenstien" by the Edgar Winter Group during gameplay, so it sounds alright in my book. :DThe time travel hint makes me immediately think Back to the Future, though, which was another Data East table.
Ah, yeah, it was totally Mara.
Best run @25:43Score @27:00
Out of all the Puyo Puyo clones out there... I think this one has got to have the most awesome, most hardcore music.
Score @14:54So, this was my first run at the game, and I accidentally came across this 1-up exploit. Basically, the trick is... if you just keep getting this 1up, which spawns right before the boss, you can keep killing the boss over and over and get points for it each time. Then, you simply die in the area after the boss, respawn and get the 1up again.I eventually managed to beat the boss and I actually did want to get to the next section.However, you could essentially farm the boss all day long, as many times as you like. That's why even though my score wasn't very good, I'm submitting this in the "any tactics" leaderboard, since it doesn't seem like it was obtained with legitimate tactics.
Score @ 15:50Old video, submitting it now that my request has gone through.
Score @ 4:55Old video. Submitting my score now that my request has gone through.
Kamakazi, I don't think playing a burned copy of a game would disqualify you from submitting a score. I've seen legitimate scores played on original hardware using everdrives, so a burned ISO seems like it'd be the same difference. I could be wrong, though... you should check on the forums.As for the score: Holy bonkers! That's insane! :OVoting "YES".
Yeah! I agree! I like this setup because it keeps the video more fun to watch, while also keeping it legit.I got the idea from another user's submissions on here... can't remember their username currently, though. They haven't submitted any scores while I've been active here, I just randomly came across one of their submisisons while browsing different games.Anyway, if you want to try a similar setup, the program I'm using is called "FFsplit". It's kind of like Xsplit, except it's freeware. So far the progam has been really excellent, and doesn't seem to bog down any of the games I'm playing while using it. Totally recommend it.
Ah, yeah, I remember when this was coming out. It was being touted as FarSight's first original pinball table. That is to say, this isn't based on a real-life Ghostbusters pinball machine, which is why they seperated it out from the season packs, even though it's running on the same engine the rest of The Pinball Arcade uses.I do also remember hearing about it's similarities to Haunted House, which is likely the table that served as inspiration for FarSight.I'm a little bummed this Ghostbusters table hasn't made it's way to Steam, though, as I don't actually own any kind of tablet and it's be nice to have on my PC.Anyway, voted "yes".
So, I did a test... I recorded a video showing me pressing the button on my controller and the response time on the monitor. I then played it back frame-by-frame to see how many frames of delay I've got with this adaptor... the video I recorded was at 30fps (I don't have a camera that can do 60) and there was about a 3-4 frame delay, meaning that at 60fps (which the game is running at), I'm getting about a 6-8 frame delay. Tha'ts kind of significant...Blargh. I guess maybe I should get a new USB adaptor at some point.
Nice score!I'll have to try my hand at this one again. :)
It's funny, I actually like the SNES one better. The two games are both really different, but something about the SNES version's controls just feel better.
lol, and yeah, that was a middle finger. xDI normally do better with this game on actual hardware, so this got me a bit frustrated, lol.I wonder if I might be getting some controller latency. I'm using a SNES pad plugged into an adapter made for the Wii, plugged into a USB gamecube controller adapter...I'll probably try recording a run of this played on my actual SNES at some point.
Score @ 6:50I need to practice...
Score @ 4:10Couldn't get the snapshot quickly enough for this one.
Score @ 31:47Man, this game is nowhere near as good as the first one...Also, it should be noted, the way scoring is shown in this game is really odd. Your score is never shown during gameplay...it only shows up after each stage that you clear. However, before it totals up your bonuses, there's a score already present. So, you're definitely getting points during gameplay, it's just not showing them on screen until later.I'm not sure how many points I got in Stage 2, because I didn't beat the boss... and I have no clue how much everything is worth, either... so I'm simply posting the score shown at the end of Stage 1.
Score @ 9:39Score doesn't show up after you die, so I missed the snapshot on this one.
Thanks!I hate it when I'm having a good run like this and it gets ended by a few dumb mistakes.I guess that's how it usually goes for me with these games, though... one minute I'm flying along and the next I crash into a projectile that I didn't see.I've got to practice! lol
Yeah, it seems tough, although not as tough as some other shoot 'em ups I've played (Detana!! Twinbee is kind of the bane of my existance whenever I play it... but I do still enjoy it, lol). At least for the first level, it seems there's a pretty consistant way of getting a perfect run (all powerups, no misses) and it's not too difficult to pull off. I think with a bit of practice, I might be able to do the same for the second level and onwards.One thing I'm still not sure about: if killing enemies with the screen-clearing powerup or environmental stuff (like blowing up the factories to destroy it's surrounding bridges) gives me any points or not. That's something I'll have to figure out as I practice more. :)
Thanks! I'm really enjoying the site so far.
Wow, you're not kidding about this port.Not only is there no music, but it moves at such a low framerate. Not to mention that gun sound is just... grating.Remind me to not play this version, lol.
Ah, if that's the case, then I'm guessing you're probably recording it in stereo, but only capturing mono, which is causing all of the sound to go into the left channel instead of into a single channel.If you want to try and fix it for future recordings, I've got a few suggestions. ^_^- My first suggestion would be to change your settings from stereo to mono, but it sounds like the audio settings in your recording software is only letting you choose the device and nothing else.- The front headphone jack should output stereo sound, and takes a standard 3.5mm plug. So, if you can capture audio from there and capture the video from your Dazzle, that could work as well... although I'm not sure if your setup would allow for sound to be outputted through your TV as well, and I'm also not sure if the audio would sync up to your Dazzle recording, so... this could possibly introduce more problems than it'd be worth.- You could get a Y-adapter for the dazzle device that would let you plug the single audio jack coming from the Genesis to both the left & right (red & white) audio channels on the dazzle card. Both channels would be exactly the same, since they're coming from the same mono source, so there's actually no reason to have it in stereo, but that would at least be some kind of workaround if you can't find a solution software-side.Hope this helps! ^_^
Hey there, voted "yes".This isn't really a big deal, but I just thought I'd give you a heads up... the audio in your video is only coming out of the left channel. Did you record it using the stereo jack in the front?I normally wouldn't have even noticed, but it's really noticeable while wearing headphones.

Hahah, oh man, this game looks awesome!Flying muscle cars fighting robots & aliens?I'll have to try this one out.Anyway, nice playing! Voting "yes"

Best Run @ 6:39Score @ 12:31My recording setup here wasn't ideal, and I switched to a different one after this... but anyway, right before I died the camera lost focus. However, you can still see my score right before the camera loses focus (which I took a screencap of in the top picture). The bottom picture is simply the moment when I actually died.

Damn, the music in this game is so good.I especially love that Stage 3 theme.Anyway, nice score! Voting "Yes"
Yeah, that does seem like a bit of an oversight for the game to not show your final score.Anyway, I'm voting yes. Seems legit to me.
It's also been my understanding that the games are all the same, whether you're collecting AES or MVS carts, and that the BIOS that is being run on the board itself determines which region of the game to run, as well as if it should run in arcade mode or not.More info here: http://playlegit.net/2013/06/18/neo-geo-aes-and-mvs-collecting-guide-for-beginners/In fact, there is a thing called the Universe BIOS, which you can install onto either MVS or AES hardware, and it can let you switch between the different versions of a game, as well as switch the region of the game all at the boot screen.This page describes the Universe BIOS: http://unibios.free.fr/whatisit.htmlStill, I guess I don't know any specifics about the home version. Some games did give you more gameplay options in the home version, so it is possible they could have given you more lives by default or maybe even had a slightly different tuning on the difficulty. So even though it's technically the same code, there is still the possibility of minor, intentional differences by the developers.I guess since I was running the emulation in arcade mode, I should stick to posting it to the arcade leaderboard.
I played it on Mame, however, you would use the same rom on a Neo Geo emulator, and in MAME, you're running Neo Geo bios.The thing is... Neo Geo's home console didn't just release games there are almost the same, every Neo Geo game was made to be played in the arcade and at home through the use of a dip-switch. So, you arne't just getting "close" to the arcade experience with Neo Geo games, you are literally playing the same exact game with the same exact code simply at home.That's why it's confusing to me that these leaderboards are split up, as it's the same exact game with the same exact code being emulated.

Score @ 5:25The scoring in this mode is kind of odd. You have your base score, but at the end you also get "points", based on how well you did. As you can see in the screenshot, I got a score of 56068, which gave me 6pts, I also got 6pts for getting to level 15, 5pts for making 24 different chains, and 6pts for having a max chain of 5.So, while my "score" was 56,068... my "points" added up to 23.Since nobody was on the leaderboard yet, and since the point totals are relatively low and aren't variable enough to make for an interesting or competitive leaderboard, I decided to post my "score" instead of my "points". I hope this is fine.

Hey there, just a heads up... the score doesn't match.Not sure if you submitted the wrong screenshot or just made a typo, but the score should be 3,772,240.Re-submit it with the corrected score and I'll vote "yes", for now I'm voting "no".
Ah, yeah, I tend to try and avoid the Android list because of all the Kuku Kube entries, however, I just went through your profile and voted on all of your scores that way, Mark. Thanks for letting me know. ^_^
Nice! I love myself some Virtual On. I might fire this up at some point and see how well I fare in time attack. I always tended to get stuck on that final boss, but that was many years ago.Oh, and, I voted "Yes".
Wow, yeah, you're right. This looks like some 90's pinball level of score inflation. I don't think I saw one thing you get that was worth any less than 10,000 points. what were the developers thinking?Anyway, voting Yes. :)
lol, a game score, sure, that's what he's showing you, let's go with that. xDAlso, thanks for the welcome!You seem to be pretty active on here. It almost seems as though you've got a score on everything. Lots of #1 rankings, too. Very impressive stuff. :)

This is the arcade version. It's being emulated through MAME. Also, there isn't any commentary in the video, unless you're talking about the video description.I've noticed on other submissions, people have been taking pictures with signs for proof. I didn't do that with this run, but I think I'll start doing that from now on as well. Though, for an emulated version, I hardly think it makes a difference.
Is it just me, or was the final score actually slightly higher?I'm seeing 3,953,100 when you're entering in your initals.
I really need to work on that landmine section after point J...
