This is still super fun today.

Watching some of the videos for some of the other scores here, I don't seem to be able to shoot as fast as others (I'm pressing the button faster, but seem to be limited to the rate of fire by the game). Anyone know how they're achieving this? I'm using an X-Box controller if that's relevant.

@TheTrickster:

Does the Xbox controller have input lag?

Maybe it's a different ROMset?

I don't think it's the controller, as it works perfectly well on other games. You could be right regarding the ROMset. I'll try another one some time and see whether it's any different.

Cheers.

I can't believe how many times you cheated death at about the :52 mark :)

Haha I know! It was one of those moments where I expected death to occur any moment, but it just never did. I was so pleased to have that recorded. laugh
