@thedarkbanshee:

I agree with banshee, I'm pretty silent except for the usual 'dangit's while gesturing helplessly at a controller that obviously didn't do what i just told it to :).  Have tried some test runs while giving some commentary/instruction doing intellivision Burgertime runs, but it's just so tough to keep the concentration needed while doing a one sided conversation.  At CGE i was just fine playing live and answernig questions/discussion gameplay with the Intellivisionaries guys while i was playing. I figure it was easier just 'answering' rather than trying to be the one thinking of the questions to ask as well.

Here's a run on colecovision burgertime, one that ends in the infamous CV Burgertime glitch. two pics from the vid show the points as the last drop starts, and the last moment before it completes the glitch back to the title screen, with the 4,150 added pts from the 4 baddie drop down 3 levels to make 299,050.

Does stelladaptor support paddle controls? I never tried to use them but his would definitely be the game i would like to use them with.   Also the game that most easily lets you know that you need to clean your paddle controllers :)

it is a frustrating game yet invites you to keep trying further and further.  low to mid 3000s is about where this game usually tops out unless you get really fortunate

This is a very frustrating game, and definitely dependent on some randomness of high-point target placement.

That's probably not a bad way to go about it.

Other than this version of Burgertime being the worst of all, nothing wrong :)

real atari 2600 Jr. Check my Indy 500 scores, those were the first i tried out video capture of my whole set up.  In this case i run all my 'RF' consoles (2600 , Inty, CV, NES) in to the RF of the VCR, then rca cables to the front input of the tv.  with the vid cap set up now, I use the rca cable out from the vcr to the Easycap on the laptop, and run the RF out cable to the back input of the tv.

yeah, after the vid i tried a few different things with settings on the tv, lighting.  i'll try some different 'geometries' of the set up though i have some limitations to the desk space.  decent first attempt.  I'm not sure about the echo on the end, I can only imagine it was the mic on the laptop cam was still active and after the sound of the direct video ended the mix with both the lapop cam mic and the headset mic ended up with the echo.  It was even worse with my first set up before i muted the tv :)

Testing out my console recording set up the first time, have direct feed into an easycap on the laptop plus a built in laptop cam showing the tv, and an external usb webcam for the shot back toward me and the console.

totally agree gorfy, it makes Emu play feel so much better.  Best on hardware is slightly better.  Doing the quick anticipatory 180s to be really fast you can't really do without the driving controller.  Working on my set up to stream/record direct video & camera for hardware gaming recording, hopefully able to test it in a few days

Emu played with the driving controller via the Stelladaptor.

My best overall is in the low 3000s, back on TG about a decade or so ago, getting to the 4th cycle of the 4 boards.  was a score i was actually in a good race with todd rogers on...then of course someone a few yrs later got in the 5k range :)  It's an underrated port.

Yeah, there aren't any listings here about the technique, though there were explicit leeching rules that TG would not accept for this title (I know, I submitted one eons ago and got rejected for it :) .  Though it was fun, as a kid learning to do that technique and feeling so good about being able to do it, like discovering the Adventure hidden room :)

Does it handle it differently from original Night Stalker? (ie doesn't accept commands from disc and numberpad at the same time).  I'll have to fire up my copy that just arrived.

yeah, it's surprisingly good for a 'generic kaboom clone' type game.  I *think* I have the cart version around here somewhere (rustles thru cart boxes)

This performance was done live at Classic Gaming Expo 2014 in Las Vegas, Friday Sep 12, 2014.  It took place on the show floor at the booth of the Intellivisionaries Podcast, who took the photo and have it on their Facebook page.  This was the bounty score I set as part of the Epic Burger Time challenge I hosted.
