    You motivated me to download an Atari 7800 emulator onto my laptop so I could join the fun! Truth be told, on the second-to-last lap, I had just run out of time when I coasted over the start/finish line, qualifying me for the final lap. Luck of the draw! Oh yeah, my score is 65,000

    70,100 I'm playing on the MESS emulator. This was my 5th try and I only crashed once on this run. Never hit the brakes and only let off the gas to get past that sharp left turn.

    Congratulations btbfilms76! Congratulations @btbfilms76 on your fantastic score! I hope you guys enjoyed checking out Ghouls 'N Ghosts on Sega Genesis! This was a tough one! I was happy to see you guys jumping into this challenge even though there was some emulation required that you may not have had set up. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging Single Life Run. @btbfilms76 posted a score of 15,700 points before the cutoff time last Saturday night, @Control Issues was right on his tail taking 2nd place on the board with a score of 12,400 points, @RickR took the 3rd position with his A-game of 6,700 points played during a busy work week, and @Atari Creep rounds things out with an impressive 5,400 points. Congrats to everyone who jumped in to play in this squad challenge and shared a score! Note: We've changed our schedule to accommodate for a horrific Halloween Squad Challenge coming up for the later half of October! Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Mattel Intellivision! GHOULS 'N GHOSTS SINGLE LIFE RUN FINAL STANDINGS 1 BTBFILMS76 15,700 2 CONTROL ISSUES 12,400 3 RICKR 6,700 4 ATARI CREEP 5,400 Here's something unexpected: BTB and Atari Creep went into OVERTIME and continued playing the Squad Challenge into Sunday and Monday after the cutoff time (11:59 PM PST, Saturday, September 14th) and ended up posting their best scores. Both btbfilms76 and Atari Creep did livestream events on their Instagram and YouTube channels playing this game and showing how it's done in Ghouls 'N Ghosts. In the spirit of friendly competition I’m adding these scores in a 2nd section called “Extra Credit”. It would be fun to see these two dudes duke it out and keep this alive in the Scoreboard, I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 and @Atari Creep to post their new high scores on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on!

    BTW I used the Sega Master System Control Pad this time for playing Pole Position II. I always have this perception of the Master System controller being clumsy and soggy... Until I pull it out again and actually play it. I don't hate it. I really like it a lot. It felt solid and responsive. After playing Hang On this summer on Sega Master System, the Control Pad felt like a very natural choice for playing Pole Position II. I hadn't done it in a while and plugged it in expecting there to be some issues but it worked perfectly. This is a great option to consider without having to mod an NES controller or custom build a new controller.

    Congratulations Everybody! Congratulations everybody on your high scores! How was Pole Position II on the Fuji track? Pole Position II gets some hate on the Atari 7800 but I think it's a fun (and sometimes tricky!) adaptation of an incredible arcade game. I'd like to offer Gianna a very special welcome to the forums for participating in this Squad Challenge. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging track. You can bet we'll be back here this time next year to take on another PPII track. I hope everybody enjoyed our Summer Events this year, including the Pole Position II Grand Prix, Howard Scott Warshaw Day, and Pizza Party Weekend! We'll have some fun stuff coming up for the Fall and Winter too. Congrats to everyone who played! I'll post my new high score on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on!

    What Retro Game Defines You...

    Well, that counts Minecraft out. Retro game? Geez. There's a bazillion of those. Depends on how I am feeling that day. Pole Position - On days I have road rage LOL Home Alone - For days when I should have listened to instinct and just stayed home Video Chess - For days when I don't want to do much but still want to give my mind something challenging Galaxian/Life Force - For those times when you try to pay a bill over the phone and the person on the other end don't speak your language Those were just for laughs, guys. In all seriousness, my online name is about how I take life. I'm down to earth most of the time but when I have a task at hand that needs to be done, depending on the task I don't care how it gets done as long as it gets done. So with that in mind I'd have to say Adventure would sum me up. Go in all guns a blazing.

This will be our second Pole Position II Grand Prix Event! This year the Grand Prix will be a little different: This year's challenge will only be for half a month and we will only be racing the FUJI Track in an attempt to achieve your best high score! Last year the Grand Prix lasted for the entire month and we raced all four tracks for the best lap time. This year we are keeping things simple: We are racing for the best possible score on the FUJI Track. Pole Position is one of the most iconic arcade games released by Atari and was genre-defining for its time, setting a new standard of what racing gameplay could be like. Pole Position II of course was the pack-in title for the Atari 7800, and is often remembered as the first game 7800 owners played on their new game system. I have so many wonderful memories of playing Pole Position at Chuck E. Cheese's with my family, shifting gears and whipping around corners with a cheese stick in my hand and a cup of root beer on the floor under my feet. Pole Position II was also one of my favorite games to play at home and a wonderful memory on the Atari 7800. ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to everyone playing!

    Back To School Games

    I decided to do something new, so here's list of 10 Atari 2600 & 7800 games to play during the Back to School season. That's my list. Do you all have any other games that would be perfect for Back to School? Oh, and I suppose I should include this here too:

    The Atari Creep

    I have to agree that today's console wars are not as exciting as they were when our generation was growing. Truth be told those console wars are probably why we have gray hairs and aches and pains today. As I already mentioned in a comment on your video the first console war I remember well was between an old school friend and myself. His 2600 vs my 5200. Granted my games looked better but his was getting better third party support. Once he played that card where his system was getting games mine wasn't he pretty much hit the nail on the head. Yea I got a better looking Pac-Man but he was getting Enduro, Atlantis, Tutankham, Yar's Revenge...things like that. Even after the game crash the 2600 continued to get software, the 5200 became a has-been. I still say the 5200 did things somewhat better but its all about the games and that's where the 2600 remains the king.

    Well..I took the plunge about a week ago and bought quite a few new components for my new PC home workstation/server/gaming setup. Just ran the user benchmark and these are scores... UserBenchmarks: Game 96%, Desk 152%, Work 129% CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K - 105.1% GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 - 84.2% SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe PCIe M.2 250GB - 283.6% SSD: Intel Raid 0 Volume 2TB - 177.7% HDD: Intel Raid 0 Volume 2TB - 195.1% RAM: Corsair CMW16GX4M2Z3600C18 2x8GB - 111% MBD: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON AC (MS-7B17) So I should be good to go for awhile and ready for Cyberpunk 2077 next year!

    Take that left turn at full speed at your peril. If there's a car there, you will crash for sure. Simply no way to maneuver. Slow down instead and catch any cars on the other side of the curve.
  33. 2 points
    That sharp left can be taken full throttle if tackled from the inside and let your car slide to the outside. Be mindful of where on coming cars are located before going into the turn. And if you have to, instead of braking, downshift for a split second then slam it back into hi gear. It's surprising to think Fuji and Suzuka are actual real-life tracks although both have gone through some changes. Those tracks are also available on many other racing games including Gran Turismo, MotoGP, Forza, R Racing Evolution, and I'm sure that there are more I have not heard of yet. Suzuka has a history of claiming the life of a 23-year old MotoGP Champion in 2003. That rider's motorcycle and number were permanently retired after. The track is owned by Honda and went through many changes before that 2003 race. I am unsure if Seaside is a real-life track or an original track for PPII.

    For me? "Crystal Castles." It involves someone different (Bentley Bear), trying to face his darkest fears (Berthilda the Witch and her evil cronies), and triumph over adversity (getting out alive). It also involves finding fortune (collecting the gems in all 37 castles). It suits me to a T. I have been faced with that stuff all of my life. I think I just made a great analogy. Thanks. 🤣

    PP II on the 7800 is not a bad game at all. It just wasn't a system seller by the time the 7800 was finally released. Seriously, imagine seeing the NES with SMB/Duck Hunt on one side of a shelf and the 7800 sitting next to it with PP II. Something else should have been packed-in with the 7800. It needed more adventure games which it lacked. Then again the 7800 was made for arcade quality games so it makes sense why the system got more arcade ports. Maybe if it would have done the same arcade games that the NES was getting it might have been a stronger competitor. Not well marketed and it should have been more seriously developed for with originals as well as arcade ports. The hardware is capable of doing anything the NES could have done. PP II is fun no matter what. It wasn't all about the score. I have more fun just playing to be playing. Unfortunately my PP II cart just wasn't up to the task any more Another ROM bites the dust. But I might have a pulled PP II ROM somewhere I saved from a bad board so I might be able to get another one going. This was fun guys! Gotta do Gyruss on the 2600 sometime. Or Fast Eddie.

    I managed to coax a game out of the cart and capture the score before it repeated the above image. I also managed to increase my score and actually finish the race! Game play seems fine...it's just when the cart has been on for a bit it acts up. It kind of reminds me of the 2600 Defender I had. So, yea, the ROM in this cart might be getting where it can't hold the code any more.

    Well, while my current 7 year old rig can still play most modern games at high to ultra settings at 1440p, the real issue is how long it takes to edit and render videos. I have a 4k camera but my PC just cannot handle trying to edit large 4k video on the fly. Scrubbing the video is next to impossible and I end up having to put the preview windows at very low resolutions. That sucks because I sometimes cannot see something that might be off in the video because the resolution isn't clear enough to see if in the preview. Also, all effects such as the fades cause the CPU to hit 100% for a seconds making it impossible to view such effects in the preview in real time. Most of the stuff I do or edit into the video, I don't even get to really see until I render them. Also the video card is not on the list of components to be changes. I really only have to change out the mother board, CPU and RAM as the old case and pretty much everything else I have can still be used. But damn..just getting a nice high end i7 with a modern motherboard and 16gb of medium speed DDR4 RAM is basically a grand. Eventually I would like to get an all different and smaller case as my Antec 902 is beast along with an nvME SSD as a new boot drive in place of my aging Intel 320 series SSD I've been using for like 4+ years now? I currently have a 1050w Corsair PSU in my PC..yes...that is 1,050watts and I know that is still usable. But it too is 7 years old and not nearly as efficient as a newer 850w gold rated one would be these days. And if I were to basically build an all new PC, then my youngest can have this current one that would still be faster than his 2 year old gaming laptop he now uses. I know the newer AMD CPUs and chipsets seem to be wiping the floor with Intel these days, but I've never had very stable AMD setups in the past whereas all of my Intel based builds have been solid with this current one simply the best I've pieced together.

    It's a shame that Atari didn't use that same character in several games. Scrapyard Dog, Todd's Adventure, Dracula, etc, would have made a nice complementary franchise if they all used the "Todd" character and he was developed further.
