From memory Brad also top scored in this game in the IGBY2015 tournament, but he did not record his game and so it wasn't a valid score.
I hope Brad will pull his finger out, play even better and record the game this time for a TG submission ... :)

Definitely the memories- I could see how coming into this game as a newbie could be a WTF moment. This is one of those games where just the sounds and music take me back to being a kid in the arcades again. The game itself isn't really football with 20 yard interception penalties etc but there weren't many other football games in the arcade that I remember around the time this came out.

I wouldn't be surprised if one of you gamers out there have this NES game too, you just won't admit it!

Can anyone here break 75K, or even 100K, or heaven forbid and that would be a 15 yard penalty, 200K?

Awesome nomination Bandontherun ;) I look forward to more of your nominations :023:

this is one of my alltime faves too. I'd put it in my top 5 Arcade games of all time. Played heaps in arcades, and the 2-player version was really fun as well, sitting each side of a cocktail machine. great value for 20c.

I get why players new to this game load it up and think WTF, throw the hands up, etc etc. It's not a trad Arcade game by any means, no patterns to learn, no order of doing things, no rote memorising. But there is a lot of strategy, tactics, tricks, and enjoyment to be had :D

Yes that's OK. We have had friends and family submit scores in the past. Ask them what name they would like to use like MattPaint or DontWipeOnMe as examples and post a screenshot of their score.

Not a tip but if you can run back a kickoff you get 20000 points. I've actually been able to do this several times but despite that none of those have been my best games.

I think I was more disappointed in A2600 PAC-Man when it came out.. truly the start of the 80s video game crash!
Both Defender and Missile Command were great on the 2600.

Well as frequently happens with me, I don't play a game for a loooong time and first game I have a blinder. I would have been happy with 70k but smashed that. I swear I was out twice falling short of the 10 yards with zero time and scraped through both times.

Only ever done it once, and that was last game. Couldn't believe it, finally actually got one. it was in 2nd half college. Reckon if anyone is going to beat Brad they will need at least 1-2 of those.

it's probably easiest to do against high school or college. but those levels most probably play the clock, so don't attempt it. You have to be pretty lucky with your blockers doing a lot of auto blocking behind you.

Record the INP and then play it back in MAME with the -aviwrite option and it will create an .avi video of the whole game. Then edit and compress it in VirtualDub and it's good to go!

No, it's obviously not a score improvement, though I think I've finally worked out something with my passing that might improve my score.

I just for the first time ever just noticed something in this game.

You've all read those books "Where's Waldo?" haven't you?

Who wants to play a game of "Where's Walter Day?".

And judging by how slowly the ref runs onto the field, I'm guessing it's not really Walter who cameos in this game because I reckon he'd run a hell of a lot quicker when the clock is ticking down. If I didn't know better, I'd swear defence is paying him to come onto the field slowly when I get tackled :( That, and they've paid off my Quarterback to not ever try to actually throw the ball over the defenders head.

Thanks. It's the one game I played a lot back in the day. I'm confident I can beat the high scores on my list as I never finished the game on the top of the list, I had to go out so I had to let it end so I could take the photo last time it was in the MGL.

From the 1983 promo for this game:

It's 3rd and 10. The crowd is on its feet. Cheers fill the stadium. "36-88-24. Hut-hut-hut." The ball is snapped. You grip the hard, cold, pigskin and the game is in your hands. You scramble left to avoid a flying tackle and look downfield. A receiver is open. You pump a forward pass. It's complete for a 10 yard gain and a first down.

That's the rush the player gets with 10-YARD FIGHT, the 1- or 2-player video with the continuous play feature. The thrill of controlling the action. Of calling the plays and carrying the ball. Of a real Pro contest of America's # 1 Game.

The player takes the field, takes the ball and takes on as much action as he can handle. He must score a touchdown in the time allotted to go from high school and college all the way to the Pros and the Super Bowl, with cheerleaders marking his progress-in-between.

Well I'm going to be a bit different and say this is is an easy game to get hooked on. Once you figure out how to run far after the punt return you start strategising as to how to draw every point and every second from every play.

So keep at it and it will become more fun for you in time [emoji846]

Hope you can make it to Netherworld on Saturday for the arcade comp, if you do I'll have the laptop with me and if you can handle this game on keyboard you can give a few of us a demo.

I was positive you could throw the ball forwards without throwing it sideways first - which you have just confirmed for everyone. Looks like you must run forward to the line of scrimmage first before hitting the throw forward button - is that right?

Saw some stuff in your video that I seemed to remember doing BITD, but can't do for the life of me now. I'd also guess that of 90% of the passes you threw would have been intercepted if I was playing - I'm either missing something or have the angles all wrong, or maybe there is just behaviour differences between defenders :unsure

I'm also positive BITD someone showed me, or I somehow learnt how to run the ball in after a touchdown - pretty sure you get more points than kicking a field goal - but don't think I've done it once (this is the 3rd time in a MGL this has game has come up since I've been playing I think). It's obviously possible to do it otherwise the game wouldn't give you that option.

Thanks for posting this video. I think watching you play this game, the game can be played where it is more enjoyable.
Really liked your passing plays and making sure the lane of throw was defender "free" (Yes the later intercepts were just to end the game)

I do recall BITD I saw some gamers go all the way back near their goal line after the snap, then throw a Hail Mary pass that went for about 80 yards, which is then caught by your receiver and then a touchdown.
I also saw these intercepted as well. Good game when you know how ...

Never tried on a keyboard but happy to give it a crack.

Just like in the real game yes you can throw it forward without a side pass. You also don't need to go forward to the scrimmage line. You can actually just stand still and do it but moving sets the defenders in motion and gives you more of an opportunity.


Saw some stuff in your video that I seemed to remember doing BITD, but can't do for the life of me now. I'd also guess that of 90% of the passes you threw would have been intercepted if I was playing - I'm either missing something or have the angles all wrong, or maybe there is just behaviour differences between defenders :unsure

No it's all about timing. Always tie your throw to the defenders movements so that the pass either goes behind them or well in front. Get that timing down and you're golden.


I'm also positive BITD someone showed me, or I somehow learnt how to run the ball in after a touchdown - pretty sure you get more points than kicking a field goal - but don't think I've done it once (this is the 3rd time in a MGL this has game has come up since I've been playing I think). It's obviously possible to do it otherwise the game wouldn't give you that option.

Yes you CAN run for a touchdown rather than a kick and from memory its 3000 points instead of 1000 but its damn hard to do and I prefer the guaranteed 1000 points.


Thanks for posting this video. I think watching you play this game, the game can be played where it is more enjoyable.
Really liked your passing plays and making sure the lane of throw was defender "free" (Yes the later intercepts were just to end the game)

Like I said above its all about movement and also strategic use of your running back? You have to adjust your play to the defenders defensive pattern and sometimes its damn hard. Rarely run the full 10 yards as you can snap most of them with a forward pass.


I do recall BITD I saw some gamers go all the way back near their goal line after the snap, then throw a Hail Mary pass that went for about 80 yards, which is then caught by your receiver and then a touchdown.
I also saw these intercepted as well. Good game when you know how ...

Yeah I dimly recall this as well. Another "popular" tactic is to do that with your goal kick. Run all the way back and then kick it. You get more points from all the running from memory. I think Jed or Rat taught us this trick last time this game came up but I don't bother myself.

A lot of this game is down to luck. Pretty sure the defensive pattern in random so if can get a good run of that then it makes it easier. I think in my vid early on I had a play that was virtually impossible but since I had heaps of time still I just took the 5-7 yards or so then made it on the second down. another one I took a risky diagonal throw that fortunately made it. I know back in the day my mates and I used this play a lot but I kind of forgot about it until I had a scrimmage that standard patterns couldn't make.

I found this works 100% of the time: take the snap and immediately run back. The screen will scroll back with you. As soon as the "G" in goal is about to move off the screen, kick. The arrow thingy always lines up perfectly with the goal posts and you'll be swimming in an additional 1K for your efforts.

Okay a quick and dirty game I recorded.

I never even considered passing up the middle haha. Like John73 mentioned about his game play, and it's a skill that John and I have in common, I'm very good at throwing interceptions. It's too bad we don't score points for interceptions as the 10 Yard Fight scoreboard would be a very different environment! :D

I rather do like the initial punt return and have aspirations of one day running one back for a touchdown. Last night I ran one back and was sure I was going to achieve this goal and sure enough, some super quick guy ran up and nabbed me at the 5 or 7 yard line at the very last second.

A tip on kicks. You can make a 100 yard field goal pretty much every time by running back at the snap. Just keep running back, run as straight as possible while avoiding the defenders. You might need to shake off a few but they will all drop back after a while and leave you alone. You can run all the way to your own goal line, then kick it from there. Watch the ball sail up and down for 100 yards. most of the time you will get the goal and the extra 1000pts as well as a few thousand for the time spent running.

Thank you for posting this video.

Yeah its all about timing your throw to the potential interceptors movements. First set your play so that your potential throw will go through the least defended area, then time your throw so that when it passes a defender it goes behind him. Watch my video for timing then practice. It'll become second nature after a while.

Tip: When returning a punt at the start, it's all about your defenders. Notice when I return I ALWAYS return up the same line. I line up the left most defenders yellow helmet stripe with the right hand side of the white line markings on the left-side of the field. I then ensure that by first 5 defenders take out players by moving them into their way. After that you're usually left with 1 - 3 defender behind you. Try to strategically use them but be careful as defenders almost always try to come up behind you for a diving tackle. Sometimes very hard to see so as soon as you do angle away so that change direction or dive and miss.

Tip: Also notice the occasional diagonal jig when running forward. This confused the defenders a LOT of the time and gives you more opportunity for yards.

I used mame to record to an inp eg:

c:\mame>mame64.exe 10yardj -rec 10yardj.inp

You can record direct to avi but my machines played like shit.

Then you use mame to convert the recorded game to avi

c:\mame>mame64.exe 10yardj -pb 10yardj.inp -aviwrite 10yardj.avi

This produces a pretty damn big file. My 8-10 min game came out at a 9Gb size.

I then transferred the avi from my cab to my PC and used Handbrake with zero customisations to convert it to an mp4 which reduced it to a 32Mb file. The conversion took about a minute.

https://handbrake.fr/

Remember that the recording will be in the size/resolution of the mame game so that the resulting aspect ration ans size will be the same. you can upscale using Handbrake but no point I reckon.

Cheers,

You could also zip up the INP file and post it here. They usually compress pretty well. We'd just need to know which version of MAME you used to play it back (and you'd have to have it installed to watch)

Less than 2 month old HP laptop - worked fine until I threw it across the room because my stupid quarterback can not help but throw the ball to the opposition, even when they are nowhere near my receiver.

Another tip for those looking to boost their score but also keep more time on the clock.

The first couple of teams (high school and college) you can really play the clock for points. so you make 10 yards to get your 1st down, then you stop the play and the clock yourself quick as possible - by running into a tackle or running out of bounds.

This way you can rack up a lot more 1k point bonuses for the first down, but you also get more time added back on the clock sooner, keeping your overall clock time higher.

gets harder as you go on though against pros and super pros as your starting clock time is lower. but there is heaps of points to be had in the first two teams.

Wow ! I triple my best score before this tournament, I will not do better ;)

Excellent score ... and you will do better! Why is triple your score the limit of what you can do?
Makes no sense to me at all. Do what you did for this score ... and then do better ... simple ... :)

All the tips and hints are helping everyone to improve their game. There is no limit to improvement ... ;)

Haven't sat down and played a serious game yet, but I did go to an auction yesterday and guess what one of the games in it was?

111930

It was the Vs 10 Yard Fight romset (which I think plays the same if you play only 1 player). Also was trying to figure out which cabinet it was in, as it's obviously a conversion (that's a Midway cab)...apparently it was an MCR hardware game called NFL Football that used a laserdisc to show real football footage. Also was the first game with a dollar bill acceptor, which you can see on the top left of the coin door (it was empty behind it). I wonder how many originals are left?

only 1, but it was a gutted cabinet I used to make a MAME cab, and eventually reconverted it with a JAMMA harness and G07 monitor. It's a Robotron cabinet that had been converted at least 3 times over the years, so I call it my Robo-JAMMA :D I use it for my horizontal JAMMA (and non-JAMMA w/adapters) PCB's

21st June 2017, 11:18 PM
Ok got some time tonight to try to beat my score but always fell juat short I guess it was my first game beginners luck. Now for those struggling with the game the key I find is to get as far up the field from the kickoff as possible as getting yardage after that there is no gaurantee and relies on a bit of luck in the formation of defenders received on each play.
To do this and what works the best i have found is once you receive the ball ket the players run dead straight when the first defender hits your top player mover directly right until your right top defender blocks the next opponent or even 2 somtimes then let the joystick go and the players will run dead straight again. If you have done this perfectly all your opponents will have been stopped and you will continue up the field and sometimes if luck is on your side you will make it all the way for a touchdown against the first highschool team. If you do this you get a bonus 20000 points plus the full 60 seconds bonus this will start you off with over 30,000 points well on your way to high up on the leaderboard.
Also in this game try not to run diagonally for long at all as it attracts players to your man very quickly better to do quick left or right and stright up movements.

When passing as I said some games your given alot of easy pass defensive line ups some very hard. I always throw the ball to the best side man and then get him to throw the ball forward to the receiver if he is open this is the best way. If the receiver isnt open just run forward avoiding tackles than risk getting the pass intercepted.

If you play it enough you will start to also work out what the tackling player will do in certain positions on the field when chasing the receiver. You can force the defensive player to dive diagonally at you instead of coming in for the tackle. This is a great help to get far up the field before you need to use your 3 breakaways. Again dont run diagonally unless its your last resort as this will make the defender tackle and not dive out of the way.

I hope this helps more players enjoy this game. As I know how you feel when you are shithouse at a game its never one of your favourites!!! Ha ha ha ha ha :laugh:

This was the tip I gave last time this game was in the MGL and is what I tried to record a video of however it looks horrible when I play it back.


From the kickoff, don't move the joystick at all until the player in front of you locks in with the opposing player, then move directly to the right until the player on the right locks in and then go straight up again. You only need to move out of the way if someone jumps to tackle you from directly behind... those diving at an angle will miss you. Don't forget to shake players off when they grab you. Using this technique will get you a good distance up the pitch and if you are really lucky, a touchdown.

I'm very pass averse! Reckon this is why I've never scored 150k+. i only pass when its close to 0 risk. Tend to do a bit of up the middle runs. I'm usually battling a clock that's run out to 0 very quickly then you're walking/running a fine line...

Love this game :)
