I have not played Galaga since that week in the MGL when it came up. (well not much ;)) The RSI was killing me :laugh: I thought clocked it never again. Surprisingly went from a best of 470,000 odd to clocking it in that week, especially when Spacies clocked it.
Love the competition :)
Found out from Spacies if you play Player 2 the score actually goes into the millions, so if you think you can crack the magic mill play as P2.

Man you wait till you get up to the high 900,000 I wanted my shooter hand to fire and was like going into spasms from memory, just stopped doing what it was supposed too :laugh:

I would have to flex my arm out between screens, whoops letting out Galaga secrets now.

Time to clock this baby again, my arm just twinged in the thought :lol

Don't think I have ever clocked this classic, I spent more time on the later Gaplus and got over 1mill on that.

Dunno if I will have much time to play this week, but will have a couple of games.

Oh, great... another button mashing shooter <_<

Is this set any different, easier, harder, than any of the other galaga romsets ? The one I have on my cabinet is the namco rev 2 set.

DKong - What rom set are we using for Galaga (Namco , Namco Rev B, Midway 1, Midway 2) ?

Damn... Been having nothing but hassles with my converted neo geo cab. Ordered the latest x-in-one gamebox from jammaboards and installed but it looks like the display resolution of the nanao monitor keeps changing to something other than PAL after the bios message.

Anyone know of a way to lock the nanao to PAL output ? This is driving me crazy. *weeps*

EDIT : Monitor issues solved. Very happy !

I don't think it matters too much as long as the rapid fire is not used (of course) or the bootleg versions.

My original midway board is set 1, I'm not certain but I think when a romset is updated to fix bugs etc. the original set is renamed set 2 and the new set becomes set 1. That might not always be the case though.

Not sure what version is on the 48in1 but as long as the dips are on default I think it's ok to use it.

Jed
18th August 2009, 03:43 PM
OK thanks for the info.

I was kind of hoping this romset is easier or more lives or something, than the one on my cab - cause then I may have a sliver of hope against you millionaires. I may have to just watch you all blitz for this game and hope for a few crumbs of points leftover at the end... :blink:

Yeah, I'm not great at this game either, I think my high is under 200k. The MGL pressure should push me over that though, but not looking forward to the final score list.

Jed
18th August 2009, 04:26 PM
Yeah it looks like this Game is a major fave of a few MGL'ers. Bar divine intervention, a galaga set patterns implant in my cerebral cortex, and a bionic right forearm, I'm in the cheap seats for this one. That, and I just played it for the last 2 weeks in another online comp. Dang..

Lucky for the millionaires club it came up, eh ? :lol

Thanks for the encouragement wingtipvortex. I will try to go above and beyond my all time best of 150k. Who knows ? Twin Galaxies says the World Record is a measley 5 mill, I'm gunning for it..with a double ship! :)

Game on!

Nice score fringert, although I should disqualify you for double posting your score :laugh: (just kidding).

Midweek points go to fringert, with a score of 855,050.

Did my 610,000 spur you on <_<


The race to 1,000,000 is on :)

This was my first try for MGL9 - have played about 20 games since and not got near it.

I won't get a chance to play again till the next game next week. I don't think I would have cracked the million anyway.

Have fun button mashers :)

Don't be it was a good score back in the day for anyone, MAME and the MGL pushed me further in my later years. Stick with it once you grasp level 13 -30 ( shoot em all as they come out)
You really have to be in the zone for this one, It's not so much a button masher either , just know when to let rip with the firepower.

I am getting pissed off I can't crack a mill ATM, blaming joysticks, buttons and using a bigger screen:p

When you get to level 50 it stays the same. It's if you don't shoot off those yellow/blue bugs early can be the end of everything.

Keep getting around 200,000 without losing a life and get a bit laxed <_< bang dead double fire gone.

Like to see some you guys get around 400,000 not that much harder from 100,000


I just cracked 100,000...!!!!!

Watch out.........!!!!!!! :lol


It starts ..Galga part II getting to 500,000, once you get there, look out :o all the same just keep it up ;)

I have this image of you with hairy toes actually doing this, haha, maybe a special bonus for people who use their feet ( we need a vid for this one ;)) any one who can crack 100,000 with there feet gets a bonus 20 points this week on top of their other scores.:D
