    Thanks everyone. Good pickup Kane. The control behaviour in this game makes it very difficult to play well, so that push to the right for the subtle wobble was an expression of “make it happen”. Interesting game.

          Yes I did. Mr Do was one of the side comp games. Had a very ordinary 180K+ game that got beaten by a 191K. On my only other attempt I had to walk away on 177K with lives to spare and never got around to playing again. The game played very well though. Probably would've played it a bit more if Netherworld had been open again before I flew home

            This looks like the machine owned by John Glover. How come the machine is setup on it's side?

            It even says Side Comp on the marquee!!!! No wonder it's so hard to get a decent high score ...

            [MENTION=8526]John73[/MENTION] have you played this yet? I thought this would be at Pincadia and not Netherworld? Are you still gaming John, or is watching the AFL on telly too overwhelming?

            [MENTION=15686]bigredbird[/MENTION] I hope you can get up there to play one of your favorite machine some day, assuming it does not disappear sometime soon.

              It was at Pincadia, it got taken to Netherworld for the BOTA-USA competition - it could well return to Pincadia, but space is quickly running out for machines - New arrivals Rally X, 1942, Punch Out have taken up most of the room. 1942 is mine (well the PCB is, the cab will be when I can afford to pay John for it ) Star Trek pinball returned from repair today (thanks to John Glover) - think at last count it was 22 pinball machines, 24 odd arcade machines (with a good amount of those being original PCB's)

              Will keep 1942 there until at least after teh Gala-Gala event, I believe Barra & Rob may want to have a shot a 1 CC'ing it. Also hoping to get my other lowboy in there, probably with Stern Turtles in it so current WR holder Dwayne Richard can have a go.

              And yes, taking a keen interest in the AFL again - being across the road from the Gabba has renewed my interest in the AFL, and the Brisbane Lions are doing well so far this season.

                Netherworld finished a very distant last. Must have been fun somehow playing the trackball games Marble Madness and Crystal Castles. George Strain scored a fine 278K on Congo Bongo.



                Johnny Bonde was the best in the NW team with 37th individual place. Then a certain Mr Broadfoot in 38th place. You took out 45th place. I guess that was all good as Martin Bedard was only slightly higher in 35th place. Did you all enjoy the tournament? Will you play again next year and what about Pincadia joining next season?





                I thought Ken House and his team that have won every BOTA previously (2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017) would play, but they did not show up. Ken only has a few machines anyway.

                I wonder if [MENTION=15686]bigredbird[/MENTION] would have high scored the Mr Do! game with Donald Hayes scoring 824K? The game is on average difficulty, so an earlier difficulty ramp up compared to easy setting.

                Yes I know what you mean.

                The Lions have won 3 premierships, and amazingly they were 3 in a row from 2001 to 2003. Amazing a bit like Liverpool in the Champions League 2 days ago overcoming a 0-3 deficit against Barcelona to win 4-0 at home. Liverpool win the tie on aggregate 4 to 3 to go to the final. And then the next day Tottenham play a fantastic 2nd half as well to come from 0-3 down to fight for a 4-3 aggregate win against Ajax away at 90 minutes + 6 in stoppage time. Two English teams in the final, so an English team has to win right. Amazing games, amazing times.

                          • Checked the Twin Galaxies MAME ESI standings tonight. 2nd place [MENTION=9967]RMacauley[/MENTION] and 3rd place [MENTION=20801]JasonV91[/MENTION] are now neck and neck.

                            There is a very strong correlation that competing in the MGL and giving it your best shot, helps you get to the top of the TG World ESI standings.

                            7 of the 10 top gamers in the TG MAME ESI standings have competed in the MGL (Lopes, Mruczek and Bedard have not played in the MGL).

                            MGL Champions take the top 3 spots, as well as 9th and 10th place in the world standings.



                            Other excellent MGL gamers are [MENTION=8526]John73[/MENTION] in 14th place, [MENTION=16259]D.B. Cooper[/MENTION] in 17th place, [MENTION=14239]kernzy[/MENTION] in 20th place, MichaelD in 26th place, [MENTION=18128]terencew[/MENTION] in 27th place, [MENTION=21141]ILLSeaBass[/MENTION] in 34th place, ivanstorm1973 in 41st place, [MENTION=17891]bensweeneyonbass[/MENTION] in 42nd place, [MENTION=18552]SMK[/MENTION] in 44th place, [MENTION=17991]Sawys[/MENTION] in 51st place, wirre.the.man in 58th place, [MENTION=9948]camaro[/MENTION] in 70th place, [MENTION=4762]kane[/MENTION] in 74th place, [MENTION=21049]Fordy[/MENTION] in 75th place, xelnia in 92nd place and [MENTION=17911]RichyS[/MENTION] in 95th place. That completes the Top 100.

                            Congratulations everyone.

                            • It's getting tight at the top again.

                              Due (I think) to the recent removal of someone and all his scores from TG there's now .85 between Barra in 1st and me in 2nd with Jason still a very close 3rd.

                              Interesting times ahead methinks
