@Ivanstorm1973: Set 3 (this version) claims you start with 3 lives but in reality is just 2 lives. That's why it's often referred to as 2 life VVC. The other versiob (vanvank) is Karateco's release instead of Sanritsu. Both appear to be identical beyond that.

@GTibel: It is too easy without the helis shooting back. The C64 version I have works. Maybe a new track for Helifire on could be implemented since this one is already out there.

@GTibel: Kind of stumbled upon these patterns on my own, via trial and error. They aren't exactly complete but it gets me on the right track. The rest is on the fly as usual.

You're probably playing it on Normal difficulty which are TG settings. But Default is Easy 1. I deleted the CFG file before playing to make sure the DIPS are set that way.

@pathebert:

I think that way there's at least one version where it's possible to get the perfect score 3,333,960.  You have to have 5 lives for that.  For the others, 3 lives is good.

@pathebert: Actually I discussed it with Kernzy beforehand, the guy I challenged. He says Pac-Man is 3 lives but Puckman is 5 lives.

@Immortalgeo: Thanks. I try to make sure there's no doubt although the steps I take I am just playing it by ear and watching what the others do. I did a 26 million point run not too long ago but didn't know if it would get legitimized here. It's on Twin Galaxies somewhere and legit, damned if I ever play that game again :$

@TheGalagaKing:

this was more of a test to see what would work.  There was a live video stream for this which Facebook took down because of the rock music in the background.
I don't mind repeating this, I told Mr. Day I would eventually go for the highest ever MAME or Arcade.  It'll take about a little less of an hour per million give or take.

I can still run the INP replay to youtube if people want this. 

 

and no Maxwel, I haven't watched your video yet.  I'm just now figuring it for out myself.

@Maxwel:

done.

I don't really have a pattern, just like to patrol the edges as the wave comes back up or down, color the 3 corners first then get as much done before finishing the last corner

in later stages, get as far away from the tracer as possible when he starts attacking you, then you just have to keep pace with him.  Avoid reversing as much as you can as that eats up valuable gap distance with the tracer

@Maxwel:

wasn't sure if this was going to fly or not to be honest.

The link to the originial thread includes the INP.  It would be a playback of what I did back in August, trying to avoid any unnecessary votes of "oh he stole someone else's video performance" which is rubbish.

If I have to, I'll do it all over again and put up four million or higher.

Just curious how transferring a TG record which has already been verified 5 months ago would work on here.

The "lemon" text on the video is my son's trademark.  I was showing him how to add text to the video when recording a game but forgot it was still on.  The initials are still mine at the end "DIE".
