I don't think special categories existed for the Flashbacks, when I posted my scores. They were added later.

My wife is glad I broke my target of 180k and posted this score, as she doesn't have to listen to this game over and over again! I should have gone well over 200k but I choked and lost all 3 lives in rapid succession right around 190k. crying

Played on Flashback 3 which counts under emulation (unless that's changed in the last 6 months). I was about to post a 201 but saw the top score was 209 so I went back and managed to get 211.

Ahhh.... I'm not sure why he should have to get the score in just 1 life; that seems awfully arbitrary to me.

 

Unfortunately though, I'm still voting No on this one due to the fact that I abhor point farming scores. Just my opinion though.

Avatar of Gray

I shouldn't say it "ruins the game" -- that's obviously nonsense. What I meant was if I see a top River Raid score of 999,999 because somebody found a farming technique, I won't bother playing it. But if the top score was 200,000 and set by "normal" play, I would still feel motivated to get better at the game. (Again just IMHO)

-- Posted by Gray on 2014-05-19 21:27:40   Reply
Avatar of Gray

Akito you make some pretty convincing points! I was going to vote no but I'll just skip this score I think. To me, point farming is not in the spirit of the game so shouldn't be acceptable. Also it ruins that game for future people who come along and want to play through the game, master it, and post a high score -- where's the motivation when somebody has found a way to farm and/or exploit and has already posted a massive score? IMO anyway.

But it's really a personal perspective thing, there is no right or wrong viewpoint smiley

@thedarkbanshee:

Thanks for the reply! Appreciate it. For what it's worth I agree with you -- if I had access to a real 2600 and plenty of games, I would probably never touch the Flashback! But unfortunately for me it's literally the only option.

 

Although certainly the Flashbacks are not emulating at 100% accuracy - that's pretty obvious - I would still maintain that they fit under emulation category. The not-perfect emulation is offset by the fact that somebody using a Flashback is sitting in front of a TV and using a replica Atari joystick (the same way as playing, you know, a real 2600!). For me, that's more accurate than the whole sitting at a PC using a keyboard/mouse to play Stella thing.

 

For example the scores I set in Frogger games on Stella are way higher than I could have achieved using a joystick - because the arrow keys are perfect for this game. So you could argue that playing Stella with a keyboard needs it's own category - where will it end? wink

 

Maybe somebody else could chime in with their opinions anyway. Cheers!

(PS I don't have access to paddles so all paddle games are unplayable for me crying )

@thedarkbanshee:

Hi DarkBanshee,

I will put forward my understanding, but I look forward to you providing some evidence because I'm always open to being corrected. smiley Anyway, as far as I know:

Flashback 1 - Nintendo-on-a-chip. Yes they are ports. New programming, completely different from the Atari originals. You only have to look at Flashback 1 on YouTube and you will instantly see that the games are different.

Flashback 2 - Hardware matches original Atari 2600, running original roms. "2600-on-a-chip". Many people have modded this console to add a cartridge slot, after which it perfectly runs almost all 2600 cartridges. Flashback 2 is, for all intents and purposes, the same hardware as a real 2600 (99% anyway, I guess).

Flashback 3 (this is my one) - Not as good as Flashback 2, but pretty close. It's running on an ARM chip. Original Atari controllers and paddles will work on this system.

Flashback 4 - Same as Flashback 3 except has wireless controllers.

As far as I understand, 2/3/4 are EMULATIONS, not PORTS. That means the game code has not been touched in any way. Hence the minor sound glitches in my Flashback 3 - it is emulating the actual game ROM, but just failing to do so at 100% accuracy. Because they are emulated, they should be perfectly acceptable in the emulation category. They are not re-writes or ports of the games at all. Also consider this -- with a Flashback, the player is using a joystick which is extremely close to the original Atari joystick. With Stella emulation, they can use keyboard (unfair advantage), mouse (unfair advantage), or a USB joystick with auto-fire (unfair advantage). But we still allow Stella scores smiley

So I would contend that Flashback 2, 3, 4 are all acceptable, but not the Flashback 1. I look forward to further discussion yes

I'd love to see some discussion on this type of score. My problem with this sort of thing is that it spoils the game from then on. I mean, where's the motivation to play for a top score when this has already happened? OK that's not MatthewFelix's problem, I know, but was this score obtained during "normal" game play? It's not like he cheated, but, it's not really in the spirit of the game IMO... Also it's worth noting that this is not the same as rolling a game -- for instance, Oyamafamily rolling an Atari 2600 game is no problem since he's playing in a normal fashion, until the score ticks over. It's completely in the spirit of the game. But this Mario score (and the Sonic&Knuckles one), I don't know, it feels different. Just playing for points ... I wonder if Serious can jump in with a ruling on point-pressing for us? Is it allowed? (And to MatthewFelix, I don't mean to offend you. These are amazing scores and I'm not saying you cheated! yes It's the point-pressing issue that bothers me.)

Forgive me, I have hardly ever played Sonic & Knuckles (although I have it) -- how many lives do you have in this shot? 51? And why is the time 9:59? Just paint a picture for those of us who aren't familiar with the game. Was this done with some type of "exploit", or point pressing?

No there were several, from $150 up to $200, and that is spread over 2 shops also. I guess they check what they're selling for on eBay, add a bit extra, and sticker them. Because Perth (Australia) is fairly isolated, sometimes it's easier to pay extra in a shop, than pay and wait for shipping from a proper city smiley No chance I'm paying more than $50 for one anyway so good luck to them.

Yes this is a Flashback 3. It's not perfect emulation, that's for sure (most noticably the sound effects stutter in some games).

This is game #1, difficulty switches in the "A" (expert) position (as you can see the buttons are extended in the pic, which means "A"). This slows down the speed of your own missiles. It's not a big deal on the earlier screens, but as the missiles start raining down more quickly, it becomes very difficult to aim low enough to hit them. I mean you almost have to aim at the bottom of the screen, to hit missiles that only just entered at the top smiley Would be easier with another game mode that has fast cursor control (game 1 is slow cursor movement). Oh well. I'm pleased with this score.

I think that's where the User Legit Rating comes in handy -- it's pretty obvious that somebody with lots of scores and a high legit rating wouldn't fake the odd random score smiley

Before you vote NO -- this is the official Activision Anthology app, running on my unjailbroken iPad 2. I use the iCade bluetooth controller. I got this score many months ago so I don't have a screenshot of the actual game screen. But I have been #1 on this leaderboard ever since. I am very proud of this time; it took me several sessions of gameplay to get the course nailed and squeeze it down to the last milliseconds, just hitting RESET every time I crashed. Searching for the perfect run :) Although this time COULD be beaten, I'm sure. Anyway, since Activision Anthology is allowed under Emulation catagory, I hope you will vote YES even though I don't have a photo of the game screen. (I play on B difficulty (easy)). Also note the photo is the same photo of me I use everywhere.

As you can see, this is running in Game 1, with both difficulty switches set to "A" (expert). On the B setting, this game is very easy to roll (but boring). The "A" setting adds the UFOs and satellites, which sometimes take one of my lives, but reward you with points too (which results in bonus lives!). My concentration slipped towards the end, otherwise I could have easily rolled the score. I think this game would be more fun and challenging in one of the "no extra lives" game modes!

Hey good score! How closely does this play to the arcade Pac Man? (reply on my profile please) :)

This game is strangely relaxing when you manage to slip into the "zone" and just drift around traffic while your mind wanders :) I like it a lot.

Outrun. OUTRUN! I'm just about to pick up my sister's old TV and plug in my dusty original Xbox, so I can play Outrun 2006 C2C again! What an epic game. Completely unrelated to your score here, obviously. I'm just excited :)

For anybody who doesn't know about "Space Rocks" -- search for it over at Atari Age. The ROM is freely available from the author! It absolutely leaves this version for dead. Really highly recommended.

This is like night and day when compared with the original Pac Man on 2600. Very playable and even though I have the arcade Ms Pac Man (on Mame) it's quite fun to play this variation sometimes. If I had a real 2600 I would definitely get a copy of this game.

Oh I only need 3 more votes to get this through ... I really love Ms Pac Man turbo! Even though I'm not a "good" player and 133k is my best ever score, I always have a good time when I play it. I play it regularly. As a point of interest I am playing on the iCade which is an 8-way joystick (and not a fantastic joystick anyway, to be honest) so that makes it tricky; sometimes I die due to the diagonals. But I've been playing it for 6 months+ so I'm used to it now.

This score would be quite easily beatable if somebody wants to do it. I would suggest first reading the manual online (it's very short) so that you understand how scoring works.

I remember my friend had this game when we were about 8. I used to really like it. Just reaching the 2nd or 3rd screen was always exciting. The graphics are actually not bad to be honest. But the game play hasn't held up and as an adult now, I really did *not* enjoy playing this game :)

I am confused about your score here and the score for Bachelor Party - are you posting the minimum score possible? Because eating 1 seed will give you 100 points so ... Unless you just want to get the first score on a game? But you could have at least played it for 2 minutes before submitting. If I am wrong, I apologise.

What happens if you continue in these type of games? Does the score keep counting up? If so, is this an "honor system", for the player to promise that they didn't use any continues? Just curious.

I honestly don't see how you think a VC is NOT emulation - unless it's running on the original hardware, it's emulation. This is an emulated score. Sorry :(

Why is there often somebody who votes "No" but doesn't bother to leave a comment as to why? It's strange ... For the record 90% of the MAME scores I post will be played on iPad/iCade so they're going to be on a smaller screen like this. That doesn't mean the score is invalid in any way.

I'm also confused about this. Maybe the site owner can clarify the issue with virtual consoles. I had a similar thought about Atari 2600 emulation -- I can submit emulated scores using Stella on my laptop, but can I also submit scores played on iPad with iCade controller running the official Atari / Activision / Midway arcade apps? It's still emulation of the original game code AFAIK. I just want to make sure because it's easier to play games using the joystick than the laptop keyboard.
