Well this thread may very well go to a screeching halt as I found that my Internet Explorer no longer works with Retro Uprising.  I also found that my computer can't play video games on Wolfmame 106 at full speed.  Before this happened I did manage to play 37 minutes on Carnival, but that's it no high scores. 

I sort of have a work around, but I don't want to go that route.   It would involve using my old 2011 computer that plays wolfmame at full speed, and then transferring the files to my current computer just so I can submit to MARP.  I'm afraid of putting my old computer online because I feel that it might get Windows 10 downloaded on it, and I suspect that Windows 10 is the reason why my current computer isn't playing MAME games at full speed.

I also tried to upload wolfmame 191,but that didn't go so great.  Maybe I'll check out some MAME installation videos on Youtube.

Time spent yesterday on Carnival 37 minutes.  Time spent total 10hrs 19 minutes.

I always thought you could keep hitting them forever. I know very little about Carnival

Well still improving so that's a good sign.  Doesn't seem like you've run into any walls yet either so keep going and keep us updated.  I got to see Fred play Carnival and I saw him shoot and clear all 4 bears on the bonus stage.  He maxed every bear and never missed.
Is hitting the bear 21 times maxing it, or is there more than that?

I had decent improvement on Carnival.  Not necessarily by score, but I did a couple of things I couldn't do previously.  Before yesterday my record was 8 hits on a bear, but I yesterday I figured out the rhythm(Side note, I think rhythm might be the most consonant word in the English language), and now I can do 21 hits until the bear speeds up yet again.  Also I was able to clear the bottom of the row on level 5, and even had half of the 2nd row cleared.  Then I choked, and it all fell apart.  With Galaga, I feel like I'm almost to where I was back in April with this game.  Was 30k off my all time high.  A million might be just around the corner.

Yes. Achieving the requirement for a harder Rank will count for any lower Rank as well. The idea still revolves around doing something progressively more difficulty for each Rank. If you can get 750k in CK, you clearly have the skill for a KS. How do you really use a score for the Rank D platformers, right? An easy CK KS could be 450k or 605k, for example. In my learned opinion, people have had an easier time getting the DK3 1M on Hard then getting the Easy RBS, so getting an RBS should qualify you for any of the 1M requirements.

OK cool. Wasn't sure how <lexmark> you wanted to be.
Definitely agree that RBS easy is much harder than 1m hard. Easy accept, etc
