    Wow

    I'd love to see this video also and see his skills.
    More then doubling the current record is an amazing feat.
    I've tried myself for a month or so lately and can only average
    around 200-250k on a good game. I started out by playing
    the game on 18 @ 99 and 19 @ 99 settings and going to a million for practice.
    On the tournament settings I'm trying different techniques for
    completing the waves. I havent found a sure fire way to deal
    with the end of a wave when you have less then 3 baddies and then
    the baiters start to come out realy fast.

    Some of those golden age scores sure are tough to beat! But to just about double it.

    AMAZING!

    Congrats.

    Re: New World Records on Stargate & Defender Tournament

    except these stargate (and defender) scores seem to be with 5 (or maybe even 7) lives.
    the scores from the 80s for stargate (and defender) were with 3 lives.
    I do not know why the rules would be changed in general and
    particularly since I believe 3 lives (for 1 credit) is the default.
    perhaps the criteria for other games were also changed.
    if the more recent scores for these games are indeed with 5 (or more) lives,
    then they do not beat the ones from the 80s.

    re..

    Check before you post!

    5 lives and no extras! These are TGTS (Twin Galaxies Tournament Settings).
    Helps against marathon scores, and shows more skill.

    Oh and 5 smart bombs only also.

    Re: re..

    I actually did look at the 'rules' before posting.
    I figured the current scores were suppose to be with 5 lives,
    but the slight doubt was from the setting of 7 lives for a 2 credit game.

    that being said,
    the scores from the 80s were still done with 3 lives and no extras
    (ships, bombs and quantities of inviso).

    That is weird. I would swing this by a Sr. Ref. I'm just not sure why they could only use 3 men back then and can use 5 men now. Something sounds misunderstood.
