      Hmmm, I'm assuming it takes a difficulty jump or they change the way they move on stage 20, I have only had three games and scored 250k, 249k, 248k in that order. I'm not sure when I lost ships on the first two games, but on the last game I lost 3 ships on stage 20 and another on stage 21.

      I know I have scored much better BITD but I was never really good at Galaga, I guess my PB is under 500k. I enjoy Gaplus more and although the action is much faster and more frantic I actually find it easier and can get 1mill+ on that, boring bouncy challenge stages though, they made a step backwards there.

      Hey [MENTION=2066]Another Rat[/MENTION] check in your profile to see if you have any forum storage space left, I couldn't upload and it took me awhile to find out I had run out of space. I upgraded my account, but I'm also trialling IMGUR for hosting and linking pics that also has an android app so I can send pics easily from my phone.
      Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

        Very much doubt I can get another 100k to take out the Bnj/Galaga Cup

          If I can get 250k on BnJ you can most definitely get it on Galaga!

            Hi [MENTION=9067]OOO[/MENTION] , I was doing a little research on Galaga and I've come across a method of playing the game in a certain way that stops enemy fire. Is this method deemed cheating in this comp? There's no button presses or secret codes, it's something that's triggered by the way you play.

            What's the ruling on this? I want to be clear so everyone has a fair shot and plays by the same boundaries.

            Can anyone clarify.

            P.S my score was playing just as std.

                If it seems like cheating then it probably is I did the trick in the arcades BITD as it even became well known then....but it's boring to do more than a couple of times.

                  I thought as much. I never knew about this and I was not aware until today.
                  I imagined players who are experienced in comps would know all of the tricks and secrets of these older games.

                      Very true. It's funny I tried this and ended up 6000 points less than my submission the other day.

                          I wont get to play until Monday, bloody holidays, what are you going to do....

                          This is my Galaga workbench, I really should get stuck back into into. Last MGL I think I was at 525K. Haven't cracked a Million since 1996 (pre kids, hit it every day after work on the good old cocktail). Maybe now they're older they will leave me alone...!

                              Been rearranging the house and had to move the games room ( well thats my excuse for not playing much the last couple of games ).

                              Will try and get some games in on Galaga considering I nominated it.

                                What a very nice workbench! I 'd like to have one of those! Very smick!

                                1 million BITD is outstanding. Can you hit the million and maybe a PB all time over 18 years later? ... I hope you can ...
