  1. Join us, @kamakazi20012 this is a great game! Super challenging, a real classic on the Genesis. If you don't have the game see if you can get emulation set up and join in 🧟‍♂️
  2. 👋 Update: Summer is wrapping up and we're headed into the Fall season! 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. I've been very busy w/ professional life and haven't been posting much. Hurricane Dorian is approaching and that will have my full attention for the next few days. I'm safe and everything is going well! I just posted the new Squad Challenge, we're getting ready for Fall by playing Ghouls 'N Ghosts on Sega Genesis. It's hard as nails, enjoy!

      I hope all turns out ok for you with Dorian, Justin.  Looks pretty horrendous.  The storm is heading north now.

  4. 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.
  5. 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! Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Sega Genesis! 2019 POLE POSITION II GRAND PRIX FINAL STANDINGS 1 JUSTIN 71,450 2 KID A 70,500 3 RICKR 70,100 4 ATARI CREEP 69,500 5 KAMAKAZI20012 66,350 6 GREENWEEN 65,550 7 LAUREN TYLER 65,000 8 CONTROL ISSUES 64,750 9 TREK MD 32,100 10 GIANNA 30,610
  6. Thanks @kamakazi20012 🙏 We've had a lot of preparedness going on. It's starting to look like it will hit north of us because I'm pretty far south, but we have to be prepared 🤞 I've been pretty busy with things lately, I probably won't be posting much until after the storm.
  7. I'm also posting this score for Gianna, who will be a new member joining us in the forums soon. The Suzuka track actually ended up being her favorite (she likes the Ferris wheel) even though it's so difficult. Maybe she'll give it another shot again next year Gianna High Score: 30,610
  8. Great showing guys. I really wish I had more time to spend on this challenge, Hurricane Dorian is headed our way and I've had to get the storm shutters up and get stocked up on food and gas. Plenty of Atari to go around in this house though! High Score: 71,450
  9. This is GREAT! I always loved F-ZERO and it was the first game I had on Super Nintendo also. We have more SNES High Score Squad Challenges coming up, I hope you'll join in!

MORE: To review detailed rules on how to play, please visit the High Score Squad page here: https://forums.atari.io/topic/1219-high-score-squad-how-to-play/ MESSAGE: Welcome to our 67th Squad Challenge, the 2019 Pole Position II Grand Prix! 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! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for Sega Genesis. Be there! Pole_Position_II.a78 Pole_Position_II.pdf
  11. Congratulations btbfilms76! Congratulations @btbfilms76 on your high score! I hope you guys enjoyed checking out Ninja Spirit on TurboGrafx-16! How does this ninja game compare with Shinobi on Sega MasterSystem? @Atari Creep and @atarilbc likened Ninja Spirit to a shmup, I've never thought of it that way but that's a great point. There's a ton of action and a ton moving around the screen at the same time, especially once you get some powerups and body doubles. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging Single Life Run. @btbfilms76 topped out at 264,200, I came in 2nd with 244,800, @Control Issues had 156,700, @atarilbc with 128,900, @RickR with 105,500, and @Atari Creep rounds things out with 104,500. Congrats to everyone who played! I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Atari 7800! NINJA SPIRIT SINGLE LIFE RUN FINAL STANDINGS 1 BTBFILMS76 264,200 2 JUSTIN 244,800 3 CONTROL ISSUES 156,700 4 ATARILBC 128,900 5 RICKR 105,500 6 ATARI CREEP 104,500
  12. I'm glad you liked it @RickR! It's a fantastic game, and another example of the kind of fun games they had on TurboGrafx that were unfortunately overlooked at the time. So glad you were able to join in on this and try this game out!
  13. I should've responded to this sooner. Some TG games can be very quick with displaying the score. On this one, if you miss it, just give it a minute for the game to end again and it will still display your high score as long as you don't power down the console.
  14. Hey guys, glad to see so much participation in a TurboGrafx challenge! This is a really great game and I was hoping you guys would like it. I spent hours playing and this is the best I could do. I've been meaning to do a livestream but it didn't work out. I may go back and play this game live on Instagram and YouTube later in the week. My High Score: 244,800 Played the real game on real hardware using real Duo Pad controllers
  15. I've never had that happen to me before. I would have addressed it sooner had I seen it. Thanks guys.
