I joined the 100k club!  :spot:

I was actually surprised I could do it.

This time I did it on a Flashback 2 with Sega Genesis 6 button contoller

(I also plugged in an Edladdin Seagull 78 so I could use the C or B buttons)

PS- Sorry about the mono audio. I forget to plug in a splitter to the audio cable.

used same stick as first try .... tapping to the right or left doesn't always seem to register .... only use vertical movement sparingly

 

I did try some other sticks ... a newly manufactured cx-40 with a cx-10 circuit board inside for clickyness , but having to hold the button down had some serious hand-crampage

 

I did try a trak-ball & had great vertical control but the horizontal control was less than ideal .... I am positive the "trak-ball hack" really addresses this 

 

I'm going to dig out my Space Ace controller & see if it still works & post my last score if it improves

:mac_alert:  This Squad Challenge ends tonight at Midnight PST! Good luck everybody!

is there a "dis-like" button ? .... some reason I thunk I had a whole 'nother day ? ( til I read the original post again)

 

the Space Ace controller has firing issues I'm sure some q-tips & some rubbing alcohol would fix ... already did the conductive paint to fix traces awhile ago

 

but overall I did enjoy the challenge, congrats to the 100k guys :D

I understand. When you say 12:00 am on Dec 15th, some may read it that you have all day on the 15th rather than it's over on 15th.

 

BTW, tried another game and got to 118,203

Crazy.

And i can feel it in my hands!
