    @John73 for this game I used .106 (I posted this a moment ago but the post disappeared - odd).
    I had one of my posts disappear in this thread also ????
    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

      Still in the box where it's been since it arrived. Slack I know.

      Had a quick game on BnJ at PAPA HQ in Pittsburgh back in April. Don't know the settings but got about 250K and walked away. Just felt like killing a few minutes.

      BnJ was the game that was a last minute swap in my nominations. Originally picked it then thought "not a good idea. Playing for 2nd here." Then at the last second decided bugger it and put BnJ back in.

        any way you slice it this is a great game. Even when you mess up the 50k bonus you can still have fun marauding.

        I'm in complete awe of John's WR score on this, how long do ytou play for 5mill [MENTION=8526]John73[/MENTION] ?

            Maybe it is, well done, but more "best evers" you will score, in the next 17 days!

            Fuel up and put the pedal to the metal! .....


            Ask your friends to play in MGLXLII. Don't procrastinate, participate ...

              About 3 hours. Crappy video can be found here: http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/139598
              Last pattern 152, 102 of which were 50k perfect patterns for 5.1 million points of the final 5,869,264

              That's a decent score considering you probably haven't touched this game in a while. Remembering that this game has unique patterns from 1 to 3 only, and then patterns 4 thru 8 just repeat, it's probably better to just practice getting through patterns 4 to 8, don't worry about going for the 50k until you can comfortably pass these levels. Once you are comfortable with these, it's just a matter of time before you'll crack 1,000,000 because of all the free cars you get. Continues can't be used for a submitted score, but no harm in using continues to learn the patterns.

              While smashing cars into the wall is lots of fun, it can be dangerous until you really work out how your car reacts to each of the different cars. Even when I mess up a pattern, I don't generally go on a massive smash fest because of the dangers of losing a life.

                  Why does the first level not have any music and a weird jumping noise? But the second u finish first level it's normal sounds..


                  Think i just figured it out. appears if u credit up and start a game too quick after loading the game. it has that weird glitch.

                    would like to get better at this game, i'm sure there's some bonuses to be had somewhere.

                      Yep that's exactly what causes it, though last time we played someone else had sound issues and this didn't remedy the problem. Make sure you wait for the "boing" noise then credit up, it's very annoying with the sound glitch.

                      50k bonus for completing a pattern without killing another car. It's ok if dump trucks kill other cars though. I wouldn't say this is a tip, it is pretty much common knowledge so I don't think sharing at this point in the MGL should cause issues

                      Killing no cars is probably easier said than done though. But if you look at it this way, you start with 3 lives, you get a bonus life every 30k (up to 990k) - so if you sacrifice one life to get the 50k on each of the first 3 patterns then your score will be 152k or so - you will have lost 3 lives, but gained 5. This sort of play is the way to get a big score, up to 1,000,000 with practice. But for really big scores, you can't sacrifice lives for the 50k. So I guess this is an early tip, when learning, don't worry about sacrificing cars - you want the 50k bonuses. If/when you score 1mil, that's the time to refine your game play to not sacrifice lives.

                        killing no cars occured to me after a few games and looking at the level bonus for crashing cars, the only way i could see getting good bonuses was when i lost lives and re-did parts of the track again, then on one of my last games i only crashed 6 cars then i figured no cars was worth a shot.

                        Cheers for the tip , i'll try that later on

                          Way out of practice it seems. Far too many stupid deaths for my liking. Reached Pattern 13

                            Just too keen to play I'm guessing and too fast on the button. But yeah happened to me as well.

                              If I try really hard to kill cars, I can get say 30. On patterns 3+ you get 500 per car at the end of the stage, so 15,000 points. The average per car in play is about 400 points, so there is another 12,000 points. You get roughly 500 points total per pattern for just driving. Add a few island jumps at 1,000 a piece and I can get around 30,000 at the very most by crashing cars. A realistic average would be 25,000 per stage. So yes, the 50k really is worth going for.

                              The only trouble with going for 50k stages is where you stuff up right at the end. I think a stage takes around 3 minutes to complete, if you hit 1 or 2 cars right at the end, you've spent 3 minutes to score maybe 3,000 points - very slow going.

                              I did record a game at some stage where I just crashed cars and did successfully break 1 million - but it's a long way to go about it.
