I guess I am lucky for not hitting Jaws then. Kind of weird not to have the final score in the ending screen. Still, I'm fairly sure I stabbed him perfectly but who knows if I just mistimed it badly.

While this is pretty good score, I'm very confused about the part where you are supposed to finish Jaws. How are you supposed to kill him exactly? While killing Jaws is not very good idea for score gaining reasons, I managed to mess up that part multiple times during this run and I don't know what to think about that.

Also this game is RSI simulator. Why didn't they include autofire in this game? rip me

I'll be playing with my keyboard for now till I get a new controller. But holy shit, this is really crazy and lucky run. You have no idea how hard that third level is. It's so narrow and if you mash buttons too hard you just hit the wall while trying to save yourself from spinning.

@derek Looking good, I'll consider buying it. Never bought stuff from Amazon so I have no idea if shipping is super expensive to Finland.

@ichigokurosaki1991 Yeah, I wanted to play some video games. yes

Decided to submit a score since it's been a while since the previous one. Because I don't have any better controllers, I had to use Xbox 360 controller for this but it turned out to be pretty horrible experience. There were some parts in the run (2-1 and 2-4 for example) where I wanted to crouch but the controller registered left button as well for some reason.

Man, I really need a new controller for retro stuff. Well, at least I beat my own score.

It doesn't have to be a super quality camera. You can buy a web camera for under 10 dollars from Newegg.com. Then you can use OBS ( https://obsproject.com/ ) to record the webcam and your game screen at the same time.

If you need more help with this at some point, throw me a message. yeswink

Here's some tip on getting better legit ratings and stuff for you.

Instead of taking a simple screenshot of your score and write your name with it in Paint, you should take a camera and take a photo of your screen with your name written somewhere in the paper. Video recording of the screen is even better if you own a video camera or a webcam. Screenshots in general are pretty bad proof as they can be edited insanely easily. This combined with a screen recorded video will get people confused a little bit.

In a nutshell, the bigger the score is, more powerful proof is needed. yes

Three notes:

1. This controller has an oversensitive D-Pad which is why you sometimes see upright/upleft during the jump. If I would be playing Super C it would be impossible to play with this controller but it still works for games that doesn't use all four directions at the same time; like Track & Field.

2. At the end of the run I started to notice some weird sound glitches and I have no idea why. Maybe I should shut down background software or something as I have underpowered my PC a lot.

3. I PASSED HIGH JUMP OH MY GOD I DID IT FIRST TIME IN MY ENTIRE LIFE HYPE HYPE HYPE HYPE.

Also my current goal is to beat all my previous personal records. I was going to start from disappeared Twitch scores but this controller has a funky D-Pad. I got a refund from this one and I ordered a new one.

I opened a new channel only for my high score submissions for two reasons:

1. I can publish all these videos without filling poor people's sub box.

2. Default information where I only need to insert the name of the game in the title and that's it.

As for the score..... I don't think I can ever pass this run.

Just a heads up, once you start to get pretty high scores, prepare to take videos or photographs. A simple screenshot of the emulation can be cheated in insanely many ways. Score is pretty low on this one so it's cool. yes

Sorry for the low quality, I didn't realize I was recording with such a terrible quality.

FLASH GAME HYPE! yes

If you wonder how did I get the screen big (normally it's very very small and tiny window), I downloaded the flash and opened it from my browser locally.

Tested a combination of OBS and YouTube. OBS is made for streaming and stuff but I just used it to record a decent 9MB video. My trademark of an amazing paper next to the screen is missing and I used a keyboard instead of a controller (because my old has a broken dpad and I don't want to use XB360 controller because of that terrible dpad) but I'm pretty confident that anyone can beat this score easily. I will redo this run at some point when I get a solid controller.

Looking for feedback about the OBS setup I made.
