in the next episode - Berzerk, I'm guessing you will cover how the game goes "Berzerk" once a player reaches over 5,000 points? I still don't know if it was just my unit and/or my Berzerk cart or if it was a GCE Berzerk bug and not an MB Berzerk bug - as I played a couple of Berzerk games on MB units at the 2015 Houston ArcadeExpo and could not replicate it.

 

As I stated above, I used to log all of my high scores in the back of my Vectrex manuals - my best was:

6/8/86 8,580 (game did not go "Berzerk")

3/1/84 923,710 (game went "Berzerk"!)

 

my current score: http://highscore.com/scores/Vectrex/Berzerk/3752

8,790 1/21/2014

wow Willie! Can't get the bomb planted in the center on Cosmic Chasm???? 

 

Here's a trick to try- when you make it to the center and eliminate all of the diamonds, hold the shield and go as close to the center as possible, do a 180 turn-around and face the exit door you are going to go thru after the bomb is planted. Pull the joystick down, the clock will start and then hit the thrust and leave as soon as the clock starts - this helps save precious seconds to exit out before it goes off.

I actually got PavaJVE emulator (Vectrex emu) to go "Berzerk" on Berzerk!!!  :berzerk:  

 

Didn't beat the score above, but it's the first time I've been able to get the emu to recreate this bug!
