Congratulations once again to @ZilchSr for the win, and as always I'd like to encourage ZilchSr to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on!

  3. I made my Demon Attack video a little late for the contest, so I didn't post it here, but I've compared emulation to OG Hardware again for this Video Pinball challenge.....and let's just say, there is NO comparison between the two... 1,413,706

  4. Q*bert (A/A): 58,600 Improvement. Really good port but frustrating when coily reaches near the top of pyramid and when you jump on the disk he waits for you at the top cube to hit you.

  5. I ROLLED THE SCORE! 1,332,964. Here's a video of the score rolling over (go all the way to the end). I had to stop recording when my wife was making a business call. Picture of final score at bottom of post.

  6. Video Pinball 3A - 10,111,115 The first objective should always be to get the extra ball. Second, clear the diamonds to boost the bumper values to 900. Third, spam the bonus lane. Pardon the cat.

    Got One!!

    I usually always miss out on presales for popular items but I’m buying the lede. The most amazing thing about this is that I somehow managed to keep a $400 gift card balance on Amazon for over a year, specifically for this purpose. I still have time to increase that amount & have it fully paid for by shipping time. This will be my first launch console since the Dreamcast. I’m not overly excited for this as I was for the DC but I’m sure that will change as launch day approaches.

  12. Congratulations RickR! Congratulations to @RickR on his big win! Rick has become our second MAME Champion! We improved our turnout from our previous MAME Squad Challenge, nearly doubling last Squad Challenge's numbers. I know emulation can be tricky for some, and I want to thank everyone for doing whatever you had to do to participate! Once again, there was some help from friendly faces in the forums to help get people get set up and going on MAME, and it's always nice to see our community help each other out. @RickR is our champion for this Squad Challenge and the top spot in our Final Standings to claim 1st Place with 140,678 points. WOW! @RadioPoultry made a dominant showing with a great score and takes 2nd Place with 129,646 points. @HDN gave it his all to reach our 3rd spot on the board with 120,438 points. @nosweargamer was hot on HDN's tail, and @Dinobot711 @btbfilms76 @Emudan @socrates63 @MaliciousCarp @DegasElite and @Atari Creep round out the board all with their best scores! Congratulations once again to "The Don" @RickR for his big win, and as always I'd like to encourage Rick to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! Also, @btbfilms76 will be LIVESTREAMING HIS ATARI 7800 PADDLE CONTROLLERS GIVEAWAY TONIGHT ON YOUTUBE!

  13. 33202 I didn't have any emulators set up on my computer, so I was going to pass on the challenges this month, but after seeing atarigames Instagram post about those paddle controllers I wanted to get an entry in (Hey BTB, enter me to win!). Was about to start figuring out an emulator and then remembered it was actually on my Arcade 1Up lol. It's definitely my least played game on here, so this is a cool reason to get into it!

  16. Congratulations Sabertooth! Congratulations to @Sabertooth for becoming our Wrecking Crew Champion! I hope everyone here had a great time discovering Wrecking Crew on NES and how to win at this game. I've been curious about Wrecking Crew for years, but never understood the game until now. It just felt like a smash-em-up game of destruction. No jump, no Princess, no Donkey Kong, why are we even here? Turns out it's an amazing puzzle-platformer with some charm. I played halfway through this challenge before I even figured out how the doors worked! I'm glad this game turned out to be a hit. We had another huge turnout for this Challenge, you guys have been showing up lately and it's been a lot of fun to play with all of you here! @Sabertooth is our champion this challenge, taking the top spot on the scoreboard at 1st Place with 167,300 points. @RickR brought his A-Game and wasn't far behind to claim 2nd Place on the scoreboard with 152,300 Points. @btbfilms76 took a deep dive into Wrecking Crew scoring an impressive 141,600 points to take 3rd Place. @Dinobot711 @RadioPoultry @HDN @nosweargamer @Justin @James Campbell Jr. @MaliciousCarp @Atari Creep @TrekMD @Atari 5200 Guy @LinkYoungPS and @Gianna round out the board all with their best scores! Congratulations to @Sabertooth for his big win, and as always I'd like to encourage Sabertooth to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on!

  17. Great choice @Justin. This is going to be fun! Here's a picture of my boxed copy (and the extra copy I have that I think I'm trading to @HDN) Something interesting I just noticed is that it has an "N" sticker on the top (indicating NTSC I assume). Weird! One more interesting story about 2600 Galaxian...it's one of the games that does not work with the Atari Flashback 2. When I did the cartridge port mod on a FB2, guess which game I grabbed to test with? Yep. Galaxian! I pulled my hair out a bit before I figured maybe the game was incompatible.

  18. Congratulations Racers! Congratulations to everyone who joined in the big race!! We had our BIGGEST TURNOUT EVER for this Grand Prix! Absolutely incredible! Seaside was the perfect track to race, difficult enough to provide tremendous challenge to us adult players but still fun to play. One of the points of criticism I see the Atari 7800 receive fairly often is that it came with Pole Position II as its pack-in. I thought this was a really fun game. I hope you did too! I came in 1st Place to take the top spot on the podium, crossing the finish line with a high score of 73,500. I feel like the game has a few hundred more points to give, but who knows. Apparently my score would be a new World Record for Seaside on Twin Galaxies and HighScore.com, so I'm going to do what I need to do to submit my score to them. @nosweargamer is back in action and takes 2nd Place on the big podium with a final score of 68,500, and it was a photo finish with @RickR just 100 Points behind NSG with 68,400. @MaliciousCarp @Atari 5200 Guy and @Sabertooth join a very tight pack of racers with very close scores and incredible performances. @RadioPoultry @socrates63 @Kid A @LinkYoungPS @Atari Creep @TrekMD @DarylJ @Gianna and @GoldenGalaxiesGaming followed behind, all of whom posted real scores that took effort and skill to achieve. BRAVO everyone!!! As I always encourage others to do, I'll be posting my new high score on the Scoreboard to make sure this Challenge continues on! Did you enjoy this Squad Challenge? If so, keep practicing your racing skills throughout the year and we'll see you back here on the track again next summer for the 2021 Pole Position II Grand Prix!

  19. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for Atari 2600 is not the worst game ever made, that's just something people like to say. @GoldenGalaxiesGaming just posted a brilliant new video taking us on an Atari E.T. playthrough, showing: HOW to play the game What the symbols mean How to get E.T. home How to get a high score and explaining why E.T. is NOT the worst game ever. I'm such a strong believer in this, I'm considering pinning this topic to the top of the Atari 2600 Forum.

  27. A little background on my physical gaming setup... gaming has been a retrofit into existing living spaces. I have gaming areas in two places in the house. First, a large room upstairs started out as the toy room for kids and my library. Now, half of the room is used for home theater with a very large old sofa in front of the 65" 4K TV and audio equipment. Modern consoles and some older ones are hooked up to this TV. I'll share photos in the future. Second, in a small corner of the office/den on the main floor, I've set up a 27" CRT TV with 2600, 5200, 7800, and PS2. Most of my Atari 8-bit collection is on a single shelf in my office along with the CRT TV and Atari consoles. My small 5200 CIB games collection is also here (double stacked). Not shown are my 2 800XL and in-the-box 800. Fort Apocalypse by Synapse was the first commercial game that I bought for my childhood 800, and I believe Temple of Apshai may have been the second. EA's early games are also my favorites. I have a small collection of games from those three companies because they represent a lot of A8 nostalgia for me. The CRT TV setup is something I'm actively thinking about. I need to find a way to have access to all 3 Atari consoles. Right now, the 7800 is sitting in the back of the bottom shelf on the stand. I also have a PS2 here but that takes minimal space. I'll probably have to go with a different TV stand. In the room upstairs, I have two shelves where all the 2600 games and homebrews are kept. Everything is double stacked. This room also contains shelves (not shown) of games for all generations of Playstation and Xbox.

  36. Ok, I jumped on the bandwagon and got myself a Jaguar a few minutes ago. I'd been thinking of getting one for a while, and the squad challenge gave me excuse reason to add another Atari console to the stable. I picked it up from a local gamer/seller.

We had one of our BIGGEST TURNOUTS which was just about on par with our recent 2020 Pole Position II Grand Prix!! Amazing!

  42. I can't believe these amazing scores! I've yet to break 10,000. At least I have time to improve. I'm using this as an opportunity to get used to OBS. I won't post a score yet, but this is how Galaxian is making me feel! Also, does anyone else think the sprites in this version are more reminiscent of the sprites in Galaga than Galaxian? Compared to the arcade, A8 and 5200 versions - the shapes have a much more Galaga vibe to me.
