This was on Tournament Settings (didn't see a separate track for that) - so 5 ships only.

Not sure why I got a "no" vote but there's a video of it on Twitch but it wouldn't let me post it.  Kept saying it wasn't a valid link or something.  Feel free to look it up on the Galloping Ghost Arcade stream of Mark Schult and I putting up scores for Score Wars.

Thanks - seems both my scores are getting "no" votes.  Without trying to sound too conceited - I am considered one of the best in the world at Galaga.  I have one World Record and am on a trading card.  I'm actually competing in the Galaga World Championship March 29th to April 1st in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  They fly us out, lodge and feed us for a few days while we play first place is $10k, second is $5k and 3rd is $2,500.  They'll also be filming a Galaga documentary somewhat similar to King of Kong.  Namco, Twitch and Xsplit are all partnered up with it and it will be streamed live on Twitch.  You'll definitely see higher scores than this with me playing on Marathon settings, lol.

In my opinion playing on Tournament Settings is legit for this scoreboard!  Even though it's not the default mode as the rules say... Tournament settings is harder.

I think your score is legitimately achieved and the reason for the no votes is, that it's a really great score and people want to be able to verify the settings and see all of  the gameplay.  Highscore's twitch connection doesn't seem to work properly.  The link to your twitch video should help a lot if it goes to the full video.  When I followed that link, twitch told me the content is unavailable unless I have a time machine. 

If this doesn't get accepted, I would recommend re-submitting with the twitch link there from the start (and making sure it's still available).

Or, even better yet, you can screencap the video and put it on youtube so it can be available here.  Some users I think don't want to go elsewhere to verify a score.

Yeah, I never really did any of that, I'm just decent at Galaga and most people in gaming know who I am.  We just finished Score Wars - not sure if you saw any of marathon score with a broken fire button was over 3.6 million.

Andrew  Barrow put up over 10 million and Armando Gonzalez put up almost 7 million.  Tanner Rousseau got almsot 5 million.  There were some pretty good marathons (all normal shot speed, of course).

Nice score Jon. Just noticed you uploaded this score to HighScore. I'm only 4 months late! Still searching for a local Galaga machine here in Palm Beach. In the meantime, I'm focusing on MAME being that it's all I have access to at the moment. I managed to lock in a pretty good score back in early May on TGTS. Next will be to raise my marathon score. :)
