Photo only I'm afraid. Played in the Jamma+ February tournament.

 

There is a recording of me getting a slightly lower score on MARP. http://replay.marpirc.net/r/actionhw . The .inp is downloadable for viewing.

4 and 2-way are keyboard for me. I used to use a PS2 pad for MAME, but now use a Wii arcade stick with custom buttons for 8-way games.

Good stuff. I'm currently playing on WolfMAMEPlus 101. I have newer versions, but I like the GUI. In this score I kelp going a long time on one nam and got the fruit bonuses to loop.

Cheers S.BAZ. 277k is my highest, but that may have been on easier settings. Definately one of the best classics IMHO.

@nick666101:

Both of your scores are great. I think that your 1000m is the highest ever by a western player (there is a Japanese score on Gamest of 999,999, but nothing close to your score on Twin Galaxies or MARP). Your 500m score is only a couple of hundred points off of the western record - the Japanese record on this is 407k (probably played with autofire but even so that is incredible).

I had 310k on an arcade machine earlier this year, and my best from 1990 was over a million (it was the only game in my college bar...), but there is a lot of re-learning to do. You need to use your bombs in the right places (and I can't remember where these are :) ).

 

I'm going to stick at it and see how I get on.

Voted legit, but I thought that default settings were loop until you die. Probably worth setting up 2 trackes for this and Track and Field.

I agree to. .inp being a requirement for MAME and emulated NEO-GEO (which I think should be merged with arcade emulated anyway). I have asked admin if they will enable .inp upload (or a link to the inp on MARP - which would do).

I am sorry to say that I believe this score is not true. I am no expert myself, but I do have access to the Gamest / Arcadia score database up to 2007. At this time the WR was 9,3xx,xxx, and I have heard that it is now closer to 9,500,000. I don't  think that the game has that many more points to offer (at default difficulty). If you had got the score that you have claimed you are missing out on a sizeable income from SuperPlay DVDs in the Japanese market. Without video proof there is no way that I can vote this legit. For evidence to back this up I suggest that you check MARP or a similar site where Ghemant posts. He is the leading western expert on Metal Slug. Apologies if I am mistaken - but this is a no from me.

That is the highest score I've ever got on MAME. Managed 600k in the arcade in 1990, but have forgotten where lots of dolls and letters are. One of my favour games ever.

Not sure of the settings for this one. My total score ended on 2nd Long Jump, but I know that some sites track score after one loop (65,390 - screenshot before start of 2nd 100m). What do people think for this? Should we ask for separate tracks or just choose one?

Hi BAZ, I'm looking to submit a score for this one and am not sure whether it is US / Twin Galaxies settings (highest score after 1 loop) or default (keep going until you fail). Did you do all events on this one? Cheers RichyS

Thank you. I can assure you this is legit. I got 2 potions which helped, but didn't get the jukebox on Level 20. I've got a best of 2.7M from years ago (level 72), so need more practise. If users are querying the score I would be happy to answer questions. I also had an approved 1m+ score in the jamma+ arcade league last year with photo proof (as much as a photo can be proof).

Thank you. For the users that did not believe this score the best method of getting points is to just use the twin shot. Every consecutive shot without missing increases the bonus points on the next shot. If you keep hitting you can get 10,000 per shot before it loops back to the small bonuses.
