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.


Congrats, Andrew!  That was a sweet run!

Thanks guys
Yes been a while. Have played it off and for the last couple of years. Moreso lately.
I might keep playing it to try and push the score higher. Would love to see a 54,5xx

Thanks Scott.

No progress in the way of DK lately (or joust for that matter). A few games around 500k but nothing spectacular. Waiting for that next breakthrough game!

Goal #5 has been added.  Kreygasm
An online MAME competition has re-ignited my interest in Mr Do's Wild Ride. I first played this in the TG 2011 Deca comp but had not touched it again until now. The current MAME WR is 132,244. This is my primary goal, with a secondary goal of 150,000. I was reading through some old threads on TG and back in 2004 a bounty had been set up for this title (among numerous other titles) for anyone to score 150,000 or more points. It was not claimed. The arcade record is 130,524 set in 1984.

The game is patternable, but only to a certain extent. Sometimes the game throws impossible cart combinations at you, and sometimes the timing of the carts is different, so you have to be on your toes. This randomisation becomes harder when the carts get faster as you progress through the levels.
It is not one of the well known Mr Do. games, but definitely the one I enjoy most.

Other than that, not much happening. Got exams ( <thefinger> ) coming up in a couple of weeks so that should be fun.  Kappa
Oh and I changed the name of the blog.

Peace!

Hit a new PB in MDWR yesterday - 113,689. This score is 3rd all time for arcade/mame.

Having lots of fun with the crap tournament games. Great to have a break from DK and the shit I usually play.
3 more games announced tomorrow Kreygasm

Hit a new PB yesterday. Came from nowhere, which seems to be a common theme.
627700
Happy with the game (obviously) but had two weak-sauce deaths on 6-5 and 7-2. Need to cut out the crappy stuff and Ill be in business. Its usually just simple mistakes like mis-jumping barrels or turning when I shouldn't. 3rd life went ~50 boards.

As for other games, have been playing Tetris as its part of a comp. Buggered if I know how people can score in the millions on this! Current high is ~127k
Still yet to make it past scene 14 on Wild Ride. If I can make it past this stage, the WR is toast! ;)

Oh and yeah, exams this week BibleThump

Fireballs why u no like meh? BibleThump

This progress on DK is making me think about a million already. I said earlier in the year, nah a killscreen is enough. But I also said a few years ago, nah Ill never go for a killscreen. FailFish.
Got a busy weekend but will try and make time for a couple of games
Peace!

Yer, that's the way it works.

Way back when, I said I'd stop at 333,300.

With DK, anybody who says "I'm going to stop at 'x' [milestone/score]" is tricking themselves. You stop only when you lose interest.

Just a quick update

Had an absolute BLAST playing in the first (of hopefully many!) IGBY tournament. It was really great to see so much enthusiasm from you guys (and everyone else too, of course)

After pouring in a shit load of effort into the IGBY, it has definitely been time for a break. I must say it has been great not streaming nor hardly playing for the past couple of weeks (I've also taken a break from modding duties at RU)

In saying that, I did spend a couple of hours working out a new strategy for Stocker which has been successful, and I have upped my PB for the 2nd time this year (recorded at RU)
http://www.twitch.tv/retroup/c/4904027
I now believe that 54,500 is possible. even 54,550.

See you guys in the next DK open
Peace!

(parentheses hype! <Pigger>)
