New PB on Missile Command with 1,897,965.  Rolled the cities on the second 810K and wasn't left with many so that was that.

Wht da.  Love it!

Wow, great job, I didn't know your progress on the game got that far. Was this on MAME or arcade?

Yeah, once 810K happens, city tracking is really the only thing that can stop you. 176 bonus cities, plus 80 more extras after the score flip (meanign the 80 your get for each 10K between 000-800K), its hard not to reach the next 810K, but once you flip the cities, then you really need to rely on your skill. I haven't played much in a while, getting the first 810K has become a chore again, it would take me a few weeks to get back up to speed on it.

Thanks!  This was on MAME with a mouse, unfortunately.  The mouse has its pluses and minuses.  It's less physically demanding, but the accuracy isn't quite as good.  I wasn't keeping track of cities at all, but I will do that from now on just in case.  I should've killed off some cities before the second 810K.  I will probably build an app that keeps track of my cities automatically.

That's awesome.

I started out on MAME and a mouse, yes, being able to pin point a mouse pointer is the plus. I remember when I started several years ago, the MAME records on TG, both by RTM, was 275k TGTS, and only 730K on marathon, so that was my goal to get 810K, and I did and I think I ended it arounf 1.4M. Then went after the TGTS, which I got up to around 320k and is still the MAME record...mainly because no one plays MC MAME.

After getting a real machine my goal, after getting 810k, was to just see a 0x board, after that I think I rolled cities and it ended around 3.2M.

Ok, I'm going to make an effort to update this thread at least most of the time after my streaming sessions.  I'd also like to start organizing my games that I've saved on my twitch page, so perhaps I'll link those in the original post or somewhere. 

Today I got a new PB of 1,665,350 on Mario Bros.  I feel like I'm making good progress now and hope to beat Perry's old WR score before the Bro Down in late June.  I also started playing a little Joust yesterday.  Gonna get up to marathon capability and then perhaps some 5-man.  I'm at 78K right now. FailFish I'm also playing a little Asteroids Deluxe with a goal of 100K to start.  My best is around 58K so far.  Gonna start easing back into DK again too once I get my I-PAC and finish an app I'm working on for DK.  I may play some Missile Command on occasion to keep my chops up, but I'm happy with where I'm at on that for now.

Nice to hear your progress Ben. Will definitely be watching when your playing Joust, a game Id love to get decent at.
Congrats on your PB. With the way you progress in these games Id expect this blog to be plentiful in updates!

If Ben practices Joust like he does other games (especially if he watches some inps) then I think he could do a rollover in maybe a week or so. It all depends on how much effort he puts into it (and if he has reliable controls). It's a pretty easy game once you learn a few tricks. My biggest suggestion: Play aggressively for a bit to gain some offensive/survival skills, then play very positionally (i.e. don't play like Marky D! ;) )

the Bro Down

Thank the freaking gods, somebody actually pushed the limits of competition-naming creativity beyond "<game title> Off"  BibleThump

After Frog Off, Kong Off, Tron Off, and the (hypothetical) Pac Off, I doubted that we'd ever get there...

Nice.  Can I resurrect my "Gorilla Warfare" suggestion from last year?
