FFsplit is a free video recorder that has worked well for me; it might be worth a try if you haven't used it before.

Another option is to save an INP file (with the -record option to mame), those files are much smaller than videos.

A slightly higher score than the previous best ;)  

A key to scoring is to collect Water, Stone, and Fire treasures (in that order) from the three levels.  After clearing all three, you get a huge combination bonus for having the right treasures in the right order.  (Even if the treasures alone were worth 0 points, which can happen if the RNG decides to troll you)

Sly Spy - it's not a James Bond game, but it's getting as close to James Bond as it can without getting sued!  

I cleared this to play along with the 2016 1cc marathon - Spinmaster and Sly Spy are both *easy* 1ccs.  In Sly Spy you have just one life, but there are several enemies that drop a life-up item (a coca-cola can!)  This is especially easy in the driving section, and the Odd Job and diving-suit bosses.

No autofire used.  The game does have built-in rapid fire.  If you hold down the fire button, you fire steadily for about a second (and then stop).  So if you tap and hold the button once every second or so you fire quickly.

Rendering Ranger!  This came up in RetroLeague one or two seasons back, and I scraped out a 1cc of it.  It really is a good game, even better than you'd think from the first level.

It's not good enough to sell minor organs just to buy the cart though :)

Thankssmiley I love this game.

Sqoon gives out so many extra lives.  There are two 1ups before the very first enemies even appear - one for shooting the sea slug 10 times, one for flying past the cross on the church. And then later in stage 1 you get another for picking up the surfer...
