    Might go in tomorrow, we'll see what the weather is like.

    Don't worry about me beating 40k, I can't remember much about this game - might go see what's on YouTube
    This is the only You Tube clip you need to watch...

      All I really remember is the dual joysticks, think the instructions on the machine showed which way to have them for each move and the punching of the bull.

      I seem to remember I was alright at this game, but who knows.

      Never seen Bloodsport - but for FWIW I recognised the guy with the beard immediately as Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds - one of the funniest movies of all time

        Some pitiful score improvements, but improvements all the same...

        Frogger - 36,170 - Think I was nearly 30k on first frog, and then choked. Want to put up 100k on this machine. It's set to 3 frogs to start which doesn't help, and bonus frog at 20k - is that right? There are no dip switches to set for the bonus frog, I though it was 10k - no matter. My previous high score was still up on Frogger, does anyone know if the 60-in-1 boards (or whatever it is in this) only holds the number 1 score? Surprised to see no other scores on this apart from mine, surely there are people capable of at least clearing a couple of boards on this and getting over 10k - or is no one playing it? surely not.

        Donkey Kong - 123,300 - Just playing absolutely horrible, not the machine or lack of practice - I'm just playing awful

        image.jpg

        Gyruss - 385,150 - Did some almighty stupid things, should have easily got 400k if not 500k+. Next time

        image.jpg

        And last but not least, my Hellmouth fries that I had for lunch. Note to self, bowl holds more chips than it looks like so don't eat breakfast next time. *burp*

        image.jpg

        Only went in for about 2 hours. Plenty of people there, not quite as hectic as last Saturday, but a good mix of male/female/old(er than me)/young and even a couple of ladies with their babies.

        When I was playing Gyruss there was a group of guys playing NBA, they weren't excessively loud, but they were dropping F-bombs all over the place. Those who know me, know that I can curse with the best of them - but I do try to mind my language when I don't know the people around me, let alone kids.

            Cheers. I updated my post. Was uploading the pics from the iPad and I can't type on it to save myself. You will see some notes with my scores and an explanation about the non-gaming picture

            Your Karate Champ machine looks awesome, I didn't have a game today, but if it is there in two weeks time I'll give it a shot - all the better if you can be there to show me how to play it.

              You can practice on MAME, just use the P2 controller for the right joystick.
              I'm not sure how long it will be there for but I'm only 10 mins away so shoot me a pm next time you're heading down.

                Yep, will do. Pretty sure I'm meeting up with another AA'er there in about 2 weeks time, probably on the Saturday. I'll PM you when I know.

                If I had two joysticks setup, I'd give it a go on mame. I'm a keyboard player, and I don't think my brain could get around using eight keys with two hands at the one time

                  One minor problem I've found at Netherworld - if I get a shit start like I did on DK the other day, dying on 1-1 - I need to remind myself I'm not playing on MAME and to not just ditch my last 2 lives and start over, I just put $1 into this sucker

                    DK 183,500

                    Went in again today to sort a few little things out (announcement soonish we hope) and stayed for more fries and more games.

                    Got to catch up with [MENTION=52]WOKA[/MENTION] & [MENTION=1425]zanderzone[/MENTION] who I haven't seen in ages which was good. Also met [MENTION=11107]Mameshane[/MENTION] who was there for the first time, he is the S.S. scores in the screenshot. I left before him, so chances are he clobbered this score because he is way better than me, but I thought I'd post it for historical relevance Also met another member, Hugh (sorry can't remember your screen name).

                    Might just have to go back in tomorrow. Without jinxing myself, I'm finding the 3+ elevators a bit easier on a real machine.

                        I'm hoping Shane get's on AA tonight and posts a pic of his score. He was having a few issues since he hadn't played with this type of joystick, but it if he got a game going he should have easily beaten this.

                          Frogger 39,740

                          frogger39740.jpg

                          Sorry about the pic, only had my crappy old Samsung phone and the camera is doing something wacky. This frogger is haunted when you hit about 35k, I'm convinced of it.

                          Completely jinxed myself on DK, 118k first life and then 4 deaths on the bloody elevators to finish with 118,900 I get one death on the elevators and it just plays on my mind and I keep dying. Gonna have to practice more.

                          One and one game only of Karate Champ - I have no idea what I'm doing on this any more and finished with a grand total of 200 pts

                                unfortunately i didnt end up beating your score. i only played a couple more games before i had to go. i only managed 164k (didnt bother with a picture) i will take one when i beat the top score . it was nice to finally meet you and WOKA i think it was?

                                hopefully i will be back up in the next couple weeks and get a PB or even a killscreen if im lucky.

                                im going to practice hard these next few weeks. hopefully i can get one of my original nintendo joysticks setup at home so i can get used to the height, throw, deadzone and spring of an original nintendo joystick.
