MGLXLIX - THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE DEAD - WORLD COMPETITION


Recommended Posts

Looks like I picked a good time for shoulder replacement surgery.   Everything went well, so far no pain meds needed.   I'll be in recovery for the good part of the rest of the year.  I will try to post token score on each game to at least have posted a score on each game.

I am very glad to hear that everything went well. Don't forget your exercises and do your physiotherapy. You'll be good to go at full strength in about a year.

A shame it happened during the MGL 2021 season, when you were leading the Championship after 1.5 tournaments. However, after full recovery, perhaps you'll play even better ... 🕹️

Oh dear, this could be a must buy for me.

Look out Sark, I'm coming ... OOO

 

 

I bought one. Should arrive by Christmas.  Have to figure out how to break this to the wife after I said no more 1ups (she actually prefers regular cabs!)

Would either of these titles be eligible for MGL nominations?

Yes both are fine.

Just letting you know I contacted 1up customer service. I asked them if the spinner goes up and down for DOT, and if the deflector shield is on the stick. The official reply was, can you believe this, is they did not know, as the game is brand new. 
 

When  I looked at the photo of the spinner, there is no way it goes up and down. So you better hope the photo isn’t what’s on the machine.

Playing Tron on this machine should be great fun too. The 1ups are a little on the small side, but better that than no cab.

See you in CT then for a game … LOL.

Saw one photo where TRON was on a horizontal screen, so at least some (parts) of the promo photos are just pieced together ! Hopefully the controllers are of decent quality & function as they need to.

@BandontheRun I didn't answer when you asked me if my spinner goes up & down (as I didn't want to take Lasso game thread off topic more than I already had) my spinners are homemade using USB ball mouse & are fixed, I did also make a Dial using a rotary encoder which does have a push down switch, figure something out for up, foot pedal perhaps. Turbo twist up / down version looks like a great product, maybe one day but I can at least play almost everything with my el cheapo solutions 🙂

Also just while we have got back on the topic of spinners, in one of my pics you can see a small encoder wheel, I initially got it for top down racers (Badlands etc.) but also found it works really well for 720, I did a little demo of it in action:

On 720 found this and might be of interest

I loved 720 and would always look forward to getting into Timezone for a game back in the day. Definitely on my fantasy wish list of machine to own.

with the new MGL rules for trackballs and spinners, I plan to get 720 into the mix.

A great game that I’ve never been able to enjoy without an original controller. Same with Paperboy.

I am pretty happy with the 1up Star Wars so I’m hoping this is comparable. 
I upgraded the 1up 12-1 with the GRS spinner as stock was garbage.  
if the Tron controls stink, I would first look to see if I could upgrade the controls but if the spinner doesn’t go up and down - that’s a deal breaker for me.

Came across this from 1981 - One part I love here Is the footage showing the small store with 2-3 games in it.   That's how it was for me in 1981. No full size arcades around quite yet.

 

 

That was really fun to watch. And I can say, that's how it was. Fantastic technology and new ideas. Great times.

Yep that's what I used for some ideas, need to map button 3 as centre, however I only need to use it at the start, it doesn't go out of sync during play. Using hole in the wheel to attach a handle (maybe on an angle) could be another option. Updated Video with some better gameplay, game was broken in that version of mame.
