  1. 39,486 Botched the initial entry and there's no erase option :redface
  2. 23,049 Testing. Making sure I had the mouse settings correct. Figured I'd better take a screenshot just in case this is as good as I get. Trackballs weren't a big part of my gaming past. First played Centipede on a tabletop at the Old England Hotel in Melbourne at a send-off for my Dad in July 1982. Then played Missile Command for the first time (also on a tabletop) a few weeks later in Sydney. Don't remember seeing another trackball game until 2002 in the US

  4. 123,175 Several years and several computers ago a mate gave me a box of old PC games. One of them (Ricky Ponting Cricket 2005) came with a PS1 style controller with 2 analog sticks. Finally I've got a use for it :cool:
  5. 55,310 It doesn't help when 3 out of the 5 enemies chasing you are thunderclouds
  6. Well spotted and many thanks for the concern. It's nothing too serious but was very bloody painful at times. I've been having issues with my left thumb and wrist since just before Christmas. Eventually saw a doctor about it and was diagnosed with deQuervain's Tenosynovitis. Basically an inflammation of the tendons at the base of my thumb. The brace just keeps the thumb in place. It's pretty much back to normal now. Just the odd ache here and there. Should hopefully be gone completely in the next few weeks
  7. 22,240 WTF were they smoking, snorting or drinking at Data East when they came up with this? :033::cheers::40s::tequila: :lol

  13. 467,650 Better. Lost by double count out to The Piranha in match 32
  14. Two CAN play at that game. Timing is everything. One mistake though and Coco will usually make you pay for it in spades
  15. Did the pilots mentioned in the first post collect their version of the trophy by rocking up at each other's homes or did it live at an airport between pickups? My thoughts are that even if someone was to post they had it the next person needs to go to them and collect it which would probably need to be organized (time and location) by PM or be collected from a comp or meet by someone who knows wtf is going on. No one's going to post their address on here for obvious reasons.
