Hi my name is Andrew and this is my story!  <YSG>

Just want to post some of my progress and goals I want to achieve this year. I have been taking some statistics and graphing progress which I think is always interesting to look at. I dont have access to machines so these are all MAME-based.

First up, the road to a DK killscreen:
KS achieved 26/8/2014 884,100
New Goal - learn bottom hammer and 1 million points!
1m Achieved 14/8/2015

New Goal - 1.1m. Not sure when I'll start practicing for this

2). Beat the Galaga MAME high score of 5,405,930
Achieved 13/04/2014 - 5,524,600
New Goal - 3 million on 5 life setting
All MAME Galaga records claimed. 5-life PB @ 19/9/2015 4,184,390.

New Goal - 8m Marathon. Current PB 5.7m

3) DK Junior 1m
PB @ 8/10/2015 - 739,400
Haven't played in a while. Will require some de-rusting

4) DK3 1m for trifecta
PB around 300k. Will grind after Junior

Archive:

3)Beat Dean's Stocker score - New PB @ 54,542 as of 25/8/2014
Bubbles - Get at least 250k by the end of the contest. Current best is 192k Finished with bubbles
Time Pilot - Break 700k. Best is ~280k. Not going to play this
Play Mario Bros. - (Maybe) I've decided against this for now :P
Break the WR for Mr Do's Wild Ride. Current PB is 113,689. Primary goal is to beat 132,244. Secondary goal to achieve 150,000. - Shelved for now.
Get a dang Joystick! - DONE OMG
4). Joust 1 million. PB @ 27/8/2014 272,700 - Achieved late 2014 I think


Peace!

First post updated. Goal #2 ticked off the list.

Some stats from my game for those who are interested:



Still losing too many ships for bugger all points. Some more consistency, and a larger score isnt that far away.
95% of the points came from 50% of the ships

Thanks to everyone for the support.
Now on to goal #1 Kreygasm

Love it!

2.4m on TGTS essentially is rather large sir.

Thanks. Technically its a 6-ship score as I was using ships 5 and 6. But still, 2 ships did basically nothing.
TGTS is something I might start playing soon. Id love to push it up over 3mil and possibly even get close to the arcade record of 4.5mil

Keep being persistent and you'll start figuring out little methods/tricks to make what seems hard now a lot easier.  :) The blue guys will eventually be quite simple to deal with on the whole.

Goal #3 done Kreygasm
http://www.twitch.tv/retroup/c/4194811
This score can still be beaten. I have been super close to scores around 54,470-54,480.
Maybe this will make Dean play some now?  ;D

Played a LOT of DK over the weekend with minimal success. Going to have a week off and play other stuff.
Also a lot of real life things going on so might not be streaming as much.
