I'm not saying parachute leeching is easy, but this should have it's own category IMHO. "Parachute leeching allowed".

@Sixx:

i don't use several leeching IMHO

parachute leching is when you stay at the 2nd stage forever and make a lot of million pts

So, what is this? Semi leeching? laugh

I just don't think it's the spirit of the game, but that's my opinion ofcourse.

You gonna play for highscore.com? That would be awesome, there's a thread here: http://highscore.com/discussions/topic/team-highscorecom/59

Please say yes! devil

I'm pretty strict on leeching too but in this case, honestly I don't see anything wrong with the gameplay.  everytime a boss ship shows up he trashes it, consistently making progress.  in the airplane stages he's dodging planes to get to the parachutes but also shooting down enough of them to keep progressing.  in other stages he's just going for an all-out massacre of everything.  so I think it's legit.

I think this is how I would play if I was that good at the game.  (never seen it until recently but played on GBA)

paolo -- I'm sorry you won't be on our team but I look forward to seeing your scores!  I'm setting a goal to beat you at something  >:)

I think you're a lot more familiar with the game than I, so I wanted to say I'm open to considering any further explanation.

This isn't parachute hunting.  Parachute hunting is easy and involves staying on stage 2 and never advancing.  What Paolo is doing is point pressing stage 2 of each loop, but playing for stages, and this is legitimate play and much harder than parachute hunting.  The top TG MAME score just stays on stage 2 and never even passes stage 10.  That, IMO, is junk.  Judge Time PIlot replays by the final stage reached.  Best rules for competitive play on Time Pilot to make sure it is clear how much point pressing is allowed, is to impose an explicit time limit per stage.  If you can play the way Paolo does, you can play Time Pilot well by any rules and beat other players.  If you can just parachute hunt, you can score high, but you can't reach a high stage as the game becomes very difficult on the 3rd loop.

Nice one!

Actually I have the record in a Time Pilot port made for an old 80´s console: the Vectrex :) This port is named Vector Pilot, very faithful with original.

I really enjoyed this game in the arcade machines!

Paracute leaching....that's funny.  You should try this on the Commodore C64.  You only get 3 parachutes per level so you cant just play for chutes like that.  

Great score!
