    And now a quick word of advice regarding the use of Mame save states, as the topic has come up earlier in the MGL, but also in the Kong-Off, and not really dealt with. (My Bad)

    It's always been a no-no of course in the MGL for obvious reasons, for playing and acheiving scores. But just as importantly, the use of save states to practice - this is also a no-no in the MGL. The idea of the MGL is that you play the game as if it was in an Arcade. IE you're walking up to it and inserting a coin. Using save states to practice for eg, just the really hard bits or later levels, gives you an advantage that you would not have got by playing the game in it's natural state.

    Coin feeding (continuing) if thegame supports it for practice is OK - as that's the natural state of the machine.

    That is all.

    3 Hours left for Gyruss, players!
    Also is pausing considered a no-no?

    Good point - yes, pausing to catch your breath, have a break etc, is a no-no.

    If you're about to crap your pants or something I suppose it's OK

    Best I can do on Gyruss, great game - I found it hard swapping between Swimmer and this - such different paced games.

    Last minute improvement. Again this MGL has brought forth a game that I love that I would of otherwise never got into.

    I'll be playing this one after the compo is over. I got to Mars, I gotta get to Earth....

    Yeah I knew it was coming, I thought a couple of people might have squashed me and not by just 5000 pts

    Well done Spartan.

    I played myself out in the first 8 days of Gyruss, and then got side tracked with Swimmer a bit. Even if Spartan had have posted this score days ago, I doubt I would have beaten it. My score was pretty much as perfect game as I've ever played, and a lot more practice will be needed to score 640K+ on a regular basis.

    It's a great score and a good victory - but I'd like to see scores posted more often, rather than sitting on scores and posting them last minute just for the sake of the win. The fun in the MGL is of the chase, the upping the ante, the chase goes on, etc. but each to their owm, there's no rules on when to submit scores.

    In almost 13 seasons of MGL's I doubt there has been a player as all-around good as Spartan, ordinarily, players have their strong and weak games, this is the norm for Arcade games. Not so with Spartan, who seems to have no weaknesses, and is very good at every genre. This is unusual. He's been top 3 in all games except for games where there are crazily high scores in the millions like Bombjack.

    So well done Spartan, you are setting a new standard for the MGL I believe, in your all-around ability.
