    I was practicing a bit this past week. This is a game I didn't like, until this HSS informed me I was playing it wrong! I didn't realize it wasn't timed based, but missed shot based! Really changed things. All this time I thoughts it was a boring button masher... Here's my best score. Ironically, I ignored trying to keep up with the computer and ended up trouncing the cheater (since he is allowed to miss as much as he wants)! 1142 (Atari GH Vol 2, played on my 3DS)

    Congratulations nosweargamer! BOMBS AWAY!! Congratulations to nosweargamer on another win! Great to see so many people turning out for Canyon Bomber and watching everybody's game improve in the thread! I love that you guys are so willing to help each other out with tips and tricks. nosweargamer posted an amazing 1517 points! Kid A had a strong showing with an impressive 1269 points! This was both our last Squad Challenge in the old forums and our first Squad Challenge in the new forums! It was a bit of a bumpy ride but we got through it. A huge congratulations to everybody who turned out for this Squad Challenge and posting absolutely incredible scores! Also a very special welcome to our new member Lauren Tyler who jumped right into High Score Squad and posted her first challenge! Welcome Lauren! chas10e, greenween, RickR, Atari Creep, and Lauren Tyler all posted terrific scores. *Note that greenween's 644 point score was submitted as "You'll just have to take my word for it" due to spilling a drink on his camera. Congrats to everyone who played! I'd encourage nosweargamer to post his new high score on the Scoreboard! I have some cleaning up to do in the Scoreboard now that we've upgraded to the new forums, I should have that done by the end of the week. Way to go guys!

    Let's try this. Post video-game related artwork or images. NOTHING "REAL LIFE" and no "Cosplay". Just video game related images that you have created or have seen and would like to share, as long as it is video games related, any genre, retro, classic or modern. Any format fine paintings / sketches / digital / rendered etc. Tributes, mash-ups or parodies, re-imaginings whatever. Of course all should be within site rules of etiquette and in the spirit of fun, reasonable common sense as always 😎 Source or credits are fine but not essential (as with my examples they are not always given where they are posted) . Of course I will start things off with a few I just discovered and enjoyed that gave me this idea.

    A lot of newcomers to the 7800 have a problem identifying the difficulty switches on the 7800, since they are unlabeled, small and a little hidden. They are located next to the joystick ports. When pushed to the left, they are in the B position, and when pushed to the right, they are in the A position. B<->A But wait? B comes before A? Doesn't that seem backwards? Why did Atari do that? Because the B stands for Beginner and A for Advanced. Some games switch this, but for most games you want to start with them in the B position. Just remember B(eginner) <-> A(dvanced) FYI-Some games also use them for different functions while other games don't use them at all. (A quick thanks goes to RIckR. I used a picture he shared in the Canyon Bomber High Score Squad thread, and added the letters as a visual aid)

    NEW CHATROOM - WELCOME CONSTABLES! Hi Gang, We're about to roll out the new chatroom! It will launch later this evening, Friday, November 30th, 2018. Today we're announcing that RickR and nosweargamer will be serving as Constables in the new chatroom! Constables are volunteers deputized with the powers of a Moderator in the chatroom. Constables are empowered to boot and ban people from the chat and delete chat messages when appropriate to do so. Constables are also able to lead Wednesday Night Atari Chat conversations and contribute to new events in the chatroom! RickR and nosweargamer are longtime Members in the forums, having been here since the forums first launched nearly five years ago and have become pillars of our little community. I trust them both very much. In years past they've both been highly active in the chat and have made substantial contributions to the welcoming "culture" that has come to define Atari I/O. I have complete faith in them both and know that our community will benefit from their service as Constables in the chat. I think they are going to have a very easy job. I have zero concern that anybody here right now reading this would ever give cause to be booted or banned from the chat. It's rarely ever been an issue here. I think of our community a lot like the bar from "Cheers" - it's a place we come to at the end of the day where "everybody knows your name". I want the same feeling to carry over into the chatroom. I don't want to see new people join the forums and begin to abuse the chat. In previous years there were short-lived members who would enter the chat with nothing but negativity, criticism of other members, and unnecessarily aggressive language. Normally I don't like to censor speech in the forums, however given prior experiences it will be important to set the right tone in the chat and maintain a "culture" here impervious to abuse and consistent with the vibe set in the rest of the forums. If things ever start to go off the rails in the chatroom as new people join our ranks, the Constables will be empowered to take action as they see fit. The chatroom will be "Rated PG-13". We're all adults here and can handle serious conversation. I'm less concerned with 4-letter words and more concerned with maintaining a positive, welcoming "Cheers"-type environment. No bar fights! And as always, Moderators will also be empowered to take action in the chat when appropriate. I'm excited to see everybody back in the chat! The chat will be always on line, all day, every nite. It will be obvious how to enter and post to the chat, and members will be able to view and post to the chat a little more freely than before. The app we're using for the chatroom is called Chatbox. It's similar to the old chatroom but you will notice a few differences. YouTube videos can now be shared as links and played directly in the chat. Images can be posted as links and will also populate in the chat. One difference I don't like that I hope will change in an upcoming release is that there is not a list off to the side of members currently active in the chat. I wish there were, but that's not something I have control over. Wednesday Night Atari Chat will return to a regular schedule, along with other organized events in the chatroom to be announced at later dates. I hope to see you all there! Best Regards,

    672 Yeah a 7800 crossed my mind as well .... in this game , if right difficulty on"b" YOU can re-press the button to launch a new bomb. , (if on "a" you have to wait till bomb hits the ground) If left difficulty on "b" the computer will NOT lose health if they miss blocks (their health meter will blip but will ALWAYS be equal to your health status) On my 7800 both difficulty switches were to the left position
