COIN DETECTED IN POCKET
« on: December 25, 2014, 08:27:35 PM »
Badge hype <Allen>

Inspired by the 2015 goals thread I figured I would list some stuff I'd like to do and then hopefully follow up on my progress now that I have a thread to remind me about it.

The main goal is to have the 2P 1943 record. Mike SP and I reclaimed it after some folks at Galloping Ghost took it, so as of right now that's a success. There's lots of good shoot em up players at that arcade so I imagine we might have to defend it.

Donkey Kong was my first cab and what got me into classic gaming. However this was pre-DKF and I had no idea how to play the game. It frustrated me and I sold it. I've been attempting to atone ever since.

Donkey Kong
Goal: KS
Progress Goal: 200k
Status: Stop rushing and play as safe as possible.

Crazy Kong is a game I actually like more than DK. <Tudose> I just need to sit down one weekend and actually beat it.

Crazy Kong
Goal: KS
Status: ~200k

Robotron is my project game this year. I love me some Robotron. Luckily I have access to it in many places, so practicing should be easy. I would like to be able to marathon this game by the end of the year.

Robotron
Goal: Marathon
Progress Goal: 500k/make it past wave 9 consistently
Progress: 300k

Twin Cobra is my favorite shmup (just listen to this music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUri2nYcFLg Kreygasm) and it loops, like most older games of this genre do. A clear is technically 5 stages, which is somewhat of a letdown since the game is so short. The 6th stage returns you a harder version of stage 1. I would like to make it through a full loop, which is 10 stages.

Twin Cobbas
Goal: Finish stage ten
Progress goal: Make it through stage 6 safely with some save stating
Progress: Beat stage 5

The last game I'd like to seriously play is Millipede. I'm working out a trade for a cabaret Centipede that I will install both boards into.

Millipede
Goal: 500k
Progress goal: Get 250-300k consistently
Progress: 225k

I passed L4 springs first shot on a friend's cab tonight. I might have to practice less than I think for that. One of my DKO games I get to L4 springs with like 2-3 guys and just lose them all there because I wasn't prepared. That gives me some hope I can get 200-300k with a few serious attempts.

After DKO6 I can up the DK target score to 200k. I was trying to get there during the tournament but I just keep losing focus on the earlier boards and dying in stupid ways. I feel like if I have a no death to L=5 game I can get there easily, but I have to play safer and not rush so much. I've also been playing a lot of Robotron and have been getting better about staying put when necessary and waiting for an opening to move (especially on wave 9) instead of running around like a chicken with my head cut off <Allen> I also have to get around to verifying a separate 2P account to submit my TG score.
