As Omargeddon does for video recording, I'm using VGA mode (640 x 480) to record my gameplays with my Android smartphone.
Thanks very much, Garrett.
Sorry for cracking your two worldwide trophies on 2600 Draconian!!

Yes from me, Bernard Larquey!
Two gameplays recorded in the same video! Performed on August 31st, 2019

You really deserve your recognition as the greatest M.A.M.E. player.
Yes vote from me Jesse.

Because of this situation, I had to stop posting my scores here with more robust evidence (video recorded with my Android device).
Difficulty Switches have NO effect on some Atari 2600 games like Centipede, so Difficulty A or B is ALLOWED!!
Check out the Atari 7800 Difficulty Switches Guide at AtariAge Forums, whose topic starter is TREBOR. On Pac-Man Collection, Difficulty Switches have NO EFFECT for Single Player mode.

The score disappears if you change LEVEL only (Cherries, Strawberry, Orange, Apple etc.).
On ProSystem Emulator, I noticed that the score doesn't disappears if you change Game Type, Plus Mode, Fast Mode and Lives. I will see this effect on my ProSystem console (I picked up a copy of Pac-Man Collection, NO Pokey sound, price $30 which doesn't include shipping).
I'm playing this exciting game just to have fun! Next year, Pac-Man will celebrate the 40th anniversary. It's time to you, your family and your friends have fun with this most popular game!
Yes, it is. My longest gameplay which I played was Xenophobe for Atari 7800 - I spent 3 hours and 15 minutes to play it in the single session using ProSystem Emulator and keyboard, and choosing Novice skill.
High Score. In 2016 I posted super low scores on some Atari 5200 games, which resulted on me winning the First Trophies and giving an opportunity to other players crack my worldwide trophies (like Deteacher and S.BAZ, who are AtariAge Members). Here are some examples:
Video in process. It will be ready soon!!
By 10-point margin. WOW!!
I believe it's a TROLL. At my own discretion, video is NOT necessary for small scores (easy to someone beat).
Speaking on Infiltrate, you lost the opportunity to post scores at Atari Age 2600 High Score Club. Looks like you missed the 2600 NEW HSC Season 8, Weeks 19 and 20 (Crime Weeks Volume 1), with the games Infiltrate and Private Eye. The 2-week contest started on February 7th, 2019, and ended last Sunday (February 24th). The stage in progress at 2600 HSC is another 2-week contest with Crime Weeks Volume 2 (Bank Heist - Game 1BB, Gangster Alley - Game 1BB and Outlaw as Bonus Game - Game 16BB). Join us at Atari Age 2600 High Score Club and participate (remember: only new scores from new matches; no old scores allowed)!

Once I entered Level 2, I punched monkeys and falling apples continuously near the right edge of screen until I run out of Bonus Timer and all my remaining lives. This technique I used to replicate my 48,600-point score on both Stella Emulator and Atari 7800 console.
Novice Skill (Game 1) played for Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC Season 8, Week 7 in progress.
Advanced Skill (Game 2) played just for fun.
Added a photo of my 2600 Kangaroo Game Program, made in Brazil by Polyvox in Silver Label.
Presence of monkey on the title screen represents Advanced Skill.
Scores noted on my identification paper, and separeted by skill level (Novice and Advanced).

JES & Mike, try the 7800 version of Galaga, which has 3 difficulty levels: Novice, Advanced and Expert. Advanced is factory default.
Remember that Novice skill is TEDIOUS and BORING.
Yes vote from me.
On your YouTube account, my greatest suggestion is to add your WATERMARK (represented by your HighScore.com current avatar). I added the watermark recently on my YouTube videos (it's a picture of Snottepillar on my current AtariAge Forums avatar).
The square symbol near the score proves it is EASY skill level.
Added in the video above my YouTube watermark to reinforce my identification.
Added the picture which represents my current watermark on my YouTube videos.
Thanks very much. I added my watermark in the videos posted on my YouTube account (it's my Atari Age avatar).

Before voting NO on my score, check the following reference:
The winner is... DR. MOOCOWZ, with 34760 points. He is the RECORD SETTER on 7800 HSC.
The moderator NIKON considered my score BELIEVABLE!
Before voting NO on my score, check the URL:

Berfore voting NO on my score, check the following URL:
The moderator of 7800 HSC (NIKON) considered my score BELIEVABLE. UNDERSTAND that the score on 7800 Robotron DISAPPEARS when the skill level is changed on the title screen, so the score refers to CHALLENGE skill!

You are getting more familiar with Donkey Kong Jr.
Between the 2600 and 7800 versions of this arcade game, I prefer the 7800. I'm TERRIBLE on 2600 Donkey Kong Junior.

Try also ASTRO BLASTER!
Astro Blaster has been played recently at Atari Age 7800 HSC (Season 2017-2018, Round 10). Check out my video presented to the Moderator NIKON.
And a clue from me - final score visible at 54:30 mark in the video evidence.
It's a hack based on Ms. Pac-Man for Atari 2600.
JacobZu7zu7 (Atari Age Member and 2600 / 7800 HSC Ex-Moderator) said about PAUSING on Astroblast during the Atari 2600 Knockout 2012 at High Score Club:
"Yes that would be legal, for about 1-5 mins, respectably.
Such as, if a bathroom break is needed, or to shake your hand from cramps, it's ok... but no long lunch breaks etc...it must be a session of gaming, not to "vacation" between each 10ks or something."
For your 8-hour marathon, usage of pause is LEGAL at my own discretion on Astroblast! With this consideration I voted YES!
YES vote from me Peter Nadalin!
At Twin Galaxies, I saw your face on your profile!
For the contest mentioned above, I have the following questions:
1) Is the original hardware MANDATORY (Atari 2600 / VCS and equivalent consoles)?
2) Game 1 or default game variation unless otherwise specified. Am I CORRECT?
YES vote from me on all your scores.
My best personal score on Keystone is almost 250,000 points, obtained for Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC, final round of Season 2 (December 2013).
In the last edition of Activision Patches Summer Quest (year 2017) on Atari Age, I played Keystone Kapers until I reached 50,000 points and then I stopped playing.
Have you ever tried the Double Shots as I presented in my video footage?
Try also Games 2 to 16, which are available on High Score database.
You saw my Space Invaders cartridge is Picture Label (blue letters on End Label).
JacobZu7zu7 was the Atari Age 7800 HSC Moderator from 2011 to 2016.
On the current season of 7800 HSC (2017-2018), whose moderator is NIKON, I'm including video ONLY for close scores to 1st place of each round, wins and new records. I provided video of my scores on Rounds 6 (Beef Drop Main Scoring, Normal Skill) and 8 (Pac-Man Collection).
Yes, that's true. I violated the rules in Desert Falcon on Atari Age 7800 HSC Season 2012 by using excessive point farming / leeching, i.e., I shot in one place of the same desert to earn more and more points.
To see the example of measures which I took at Atari Age 7800 HSC, check out the topic Desert Falcon on Season 7 / Game 5, realized in 2014 (my evidences are in Post #16).
What JacobZu7zu7 (7800 HSC Moderator in 2016) said during Season 8, after my Failsafe video footage was blocked worldwide due to copyright on YouTube - visual content claimed by UEFA:
"You've proven to be posting legit scores at the 7800 HSC. You may or may not post videos with your scores, its fine now honest player
I'm sure the videos that have been posted so far have helped people learn to play oyama-style"
And Atarifever said still during Season 8 of 7800 HSC:
"I agree that Oyama has proven himself honest beyond any doubt. I was looking the place over here, as I may finally be able to start playing again (my 7800 and most of my possessions have been in storage for 15 months now, after we moved our family for a new job). My first thought was "man, why is this guy still required to post proof of anything?" I think it's obvious by now you're just really good."
You should do as usual - just submit scores normally under correct category / game title / settings.
Some users who play Atari games on 7800 Prosystem have a composite modified for this system like me and JIN.
Your score is 41,367,947 points as I saw in your evidences.
Nice console. Yes vote.
I won the composite modded Atari 7800 Prosystem in 2016 as a prize by winning the Atari 5200 / 7800 Worldwide Trophy Cracking Contest, realized here. Also in the same year, I won the Eddladin Super 78 joystick by winning another contest - Atari Trophy Cracking Summer Contest.
You are invited to join us on Atari Age 2600 High Score Club. Season 2018 has started last Saturday with the Arcade Game "Burgertime", by the moderator Vocelli.

Winter Games is an excellent game for the Olympics.
YES vote from me, Anthony. I've already read your confessions.
DON'T be ashamed if you cheated on video games (even on real hardwares).
You are always welcome as a NEW PLAYER at AtariAge High Score Club.
Remember the following rule: "ALL NEW SCORES MUST BE POSTED; NO OLD SCORES ALLOWED. POST YOUR NEW SCORE AT ATARIAGE HIGH SCORE CLUB FIRST, THIS WILL AVOID CONFUSION OF "WHEN" A SCORE WAS RECORDED!"
To DuggerVideoGames and Pjsteele,
If you post your scores on 2600 Burgertime at Atari Age High Score Club, keep in mind you have to play a new game and ALL NEW SCORES MUST BE POSTED; NO OLD SCORES ALLOWED.
YES vote from me by considering you are the DONKEY KONG GENIUS on 7800 platform.
Remember that this game variation ALLOWS cheating, which is Double-Shots for this title.
EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO RECORDED WITH MY SMARTPHONE!!
At the starting of this video: ME turning ON my Atari 7800 console while I held down the RESET button (IGNORE my score noted on my yellow identification paper, which is 20,000 points on Game 1-BB under SINGLE shots).

Yes vote from me, JIN.
Be careful - turn OFF your Atari VCS / 2600 / 7800 console when you insert or remove a Game Program cartridge. Otherwise... your fun will be over!
YES vote from me!
Just to let Mike know, I won 2 Atari cartridges on Atari Age 2600 HSC Season 2017. One of them by participating in all 32 rounds and another one by winning the Bonus Round. The games which I chose were Asteroids and Space Invaders (Picture label by Atari).
I'm just curious - what controller do you use for emulation sessions?
To play Space Invaders for 2600, I use keyboard on Stella, and Eddladin Super 78 joystick on my Atari 7800 console.
The statistical table (details of gameplay footage) I made with Microsoft Excel.
Here on HighScore.com and at Atari Age High Score Club, I was forced to provide pictures + video + tables to document my score in some occasions.
One of contests in which I provided picture + video + statistical table was Chopper Command at 2600 HSC during NEW Season 6 (Season 2017).
Welcome to the HighScore.com - YES vote from me
For highest scores, video is highly recommended.
Video is also recommended when you post your higher scores on 2600 games with Difficulty Switch A/Expert, like Asteroids, Missile Command and Space Invaders.
Congrats on breaking my record on this 7800 homebrew game, and paying a tribute to the programmer KEN SIDERS, who passed away in 2017.

Try Yars' Revenge, one of the most Atari 2600 classic games.
Only 1 photo is enough for me on this Centipede version. YES vote.
Happy New Year, Sean!
At my own discretion, PAL / NTSC DOESN'T matter for score submissions!
At Atari Age High Score Clubs Forums and here on HighScore.com, there are members located in the region of the world whose video format is PAL (nominal frequency is 50 Hz), specially Europe and Australia.
Infos about TV Format at Atari Age: http://atariage.com/common/video_key.php
I asked to the moderator of 2600 High Score Club at Atari Age Forums, who will be VOCELLI for the next season (2018) - "Does Color Format (PAL - 50 FPS / NTSC - 60 FPS) matter in this HSC?"
CapitanClassic said: "I would say no. The HSC has players from all around the world, I am sure someone is in a location that only has PAL TVs. It would be a shame to force them to play it on emulators if they have the real hardware. "
"No. It does not matter. And for the record.... Emulation is not preferred but I understand that it is needed because we do not own all the games (although I am trying, lol).
That's fine to use emulation but PLEASE... OH PLEASE... be honest.
Sometimes it is disheartening for Hardware players to see someone post a high score on Emulation not knowing what goes on behind the 'flip this switch/moving this switch/using that switch'. Sometime I question if I should give extra points to Hardware users. But then there is 'cart frying' and 'bugs'.
So PLEASE... nothing is won here... just play for fun and try to make it fun for all and we can see our HSC continue to be a success."
With these considerations, any color format is ALLOWED at my own discretion.
Nominal Framerate on PAL format is 50 frames per second (video frequency is 50 Hz). PAL is slower than NTSC format, whose nominal value is 60 Hz / 60 FPS.
I play Atari games mostly on NTSC format and nominal framerate of 60 FPS.
In my country (Brazil), 60 Hz is the nominal frequency and PAL-M is the video format implemented in the 1970s.
And try also the 7800 version of GALAGA!

Now I have a copy of 2600 Asteroids. It's one of 2 cartridges which I won and chose by participating on all rounds of Atari Age 2600 HSC Season 2017. Space Invaders is another cartridge which I won and chose by winning the 2600 HSC Bonus Round, which was realized after the ending of regular rounds.

Settings adjusted on Blue MSX Emulator in order to follow standard rules:
PLEASE, note that the speed of this MSX game decreases at the presence of too many objects on the screen (enemies and bombs) during this gameplay.
At the starting of video above, I showed the emulation speed.
For this session, I changed emulation speed to 120% just because the Video Frequency was adjusted to 50 Hz. For the next sessions of Blue MSX Emulator, I will adjust Video Frequency to 60 Hz and emulation speed to 100%.

I vote NO on your score by excessive leeching.
I based on Twin Galaxies Reference Rules for NES GUN-NAC:
"There is a time limit of 1 minute to defeat easier bosses and 1 Minute and a half for more difficult bosses. This is to permit less experienced plays a fair chance to defeat the boss, and for all players alike, prevents leeching issues from arising."
According to my own consideration, the more difficult bosses are understand as the bosses which appear at the ending of each area / stage.
Thanks very much.

Try again, man! You deserved my YES vote by your merit!
NOTE TO USERS BEFORE VOTING:
Right Difficulty Switch set to B due to COLOR FORMAT, which is NTSC.
I play Atari 2600 games on NTSC60 Format mostly, so attention for this!
The person who are voting NO on my last scores are being extremely COWARD!!
Thanks very much, man!
I used TANK's technique to achieve this astronomical score. Here is the extract from Atari Age 5200 Regular High Score Club Season 5 / Round 20:
"Heres what works for me--5200 pacman's monsters are the most vicious ghosts out of all pacman ports (in my opinion) so i think of it as survival pac man lol. The goal is to survive until the 7th key. The 5th key, the 7th key and beyond the ghost never turn back to normal once you eat a power pill. You can run your score till it turns over and beyond. From cherry up to 5th key Dont worry about racking up points,eating monsters or eating fruit or keys....Just get past each screen clearing all the dots the best you can while surviving the onslaught of the 5200 ghosts.(...) Dont be distracted by fruit and eating ghost for racking up points and you will make it eventually to that 7th key."
DON'T BE COWARD BY VOTING NO!
This is the worst score possible which I set for this 2600 game (and variation) since it will result on me winning one more FIRST TROPHY!
This is the lowest score which I posted for Atari Age 5200 HSC Season 10, Round 8. At my own discretion video is not necessary for low scores.

Many Atari games I'm playing on NTSC Format (Framerate 60 which is the standard in North America). In my country (Brazil), the standard Framerate is 60 FPS (frequency 60 Hz).
Note to users before voting NO and choosing Rules:
Although the rules say "Both difficulty switches must be set to A position", I had to set Right Difficulty switch to B position due to Color Format (the Oystron Cartridge opened on Stella Emulator is NTSC FORMAT), and I usually set to NTSC Color to play Atari 2600 games. To set both difficulty switches to A position, I have to change Color Format to PAL (European Standard).

I'm missing you!!
I tried to score more than my previous one (3,111), but because of my "mental blocking" (situations which I cannot avoid, like cheap deaths), I decided to concede the highest score to YOU at 2600 NEW HSC Season 6 / Week 13!
You deserve your own victory on this Paddle Game!

Framerate changed to 60 FPS on Stella Emulator although this game is on PAL Format. The framerates which I CAN USE for emulators in general are 50 and 60 FPS, which correspond to nominal frequencies (50/60 Hz, depending on the country / region of the world).

But this year my goal is to finish the Season 2017 on the 1st place at Atari Age High Score Club, at least in one of two categories - 2600 and 7800.
And for Atari Age High Score Club, category 5200, I'm not worring with my current Ranking.
I set the lowest score possible for this 5200 game since it will result on me winning the FIRST TROPHY.
I set the extremely low score for this 5200 game since it will result on me winning the FIRST TROPHY.
