Played on the slowest level (level 3), which is indicated by the blue dot on the right side of the screen of the second picture. Thanks for voting.

Yeah, it's agonizingly hard to maintain a pattern. However, I'm not as good at this game as you are tbh. So, the slowest level was my only chance to beat you lol.

Ah, that's a shame they're not on here. We could use all the support we can get. It sure does take a while to get the necessary 25 votes.

@doguhnew: Yes, it is especially for the intellivision. I think some of them think there is too much emphasis on the need for evidence here but I don't see how a site like this can work and be even close to creditable without the need for evidence for scores achieved.

Couldn't agree more! How hard is it to hold up a piece of paper with your username on it? Some games even with different levels don't even need video. By the way, I ordered a System III today (and drove to pickup another original, mine shuts off after ten minutes of play). Also, I'm looking for parts for the original console, do you have any ideas besides ebay to get parts (they don't have much now). I'd like main boards, power supply boards, etc etc.

@doguhnew: Yes, lock n chase, burgertime etc. Some people here have indicated they never vote of there is no video is present. That's fine and I always upload a video if there is no way of telling the level is anything other than the easiest. It's time consuming but I think necessary in these circumstances. That's great news with the system III. EBay is your best bet for parts. I'd buy complete units and cannibalise them for parts. My first attempt at the Astrosmash WR here fried my cpu. It would then turn on but cut out after a few minutes. It was after a 5 hour game. These have bad ventilation by design and don't dissipate heat well. It now has a new cpu, caps and custom heat sinks built in. Also, I built a custom laptop type cooling platform with a small fan next to it to keep it cool. You may have seen it in some of my evidence pics? My point being, it's no important keeping these as cool as possible, especially when playing for extended sessions.

Yeah, I remember reading about your Astrosmash situation. I've noticed that they get particularly hot on the power supply board (and the caps).I'm interested in the cooling pad idea; that's a good idea. I'm going to look into it. I have several INTV consoles, but the one I mentioned earlier that shuts off is my favorite, as I've had it since the 90s. It's sad what happened to it, my mother in law (while the wife and I were away) took it up on herself to "clean things". In doing so she flipped the power on and it stayed on for about two days. Like I said, it plays for about ten minutes and then goes black. Could be a fried CPU, could be solder crack in the power supply board. I've only had time to look at the caps (and they seem fine). My plan is buy a working console for as cheap as possible and just cannibalize parts from it (like you said). I'll get it working properly eventually as i've emotional attachment to it.

@doguhnew:
Yeah, the power supply and the main board (which is mounted upside down) get hot.  
 
I bought a standard usb cooling pad from ebay but it they are woefully under powered. I removed the fans and replaced with 12v high powered silent PC cooling fans. I then soldered in a variable switch to vary the speed and a AC to DC power supply. The results are very nice. It keeps my Inty ice cold even on extended sessions:)  
 
Hope you get it sorted soon :)
