    Hey Mike,

    I know of your score. I was soo close to topping it a few years ago on a score I submitted. I think my best on Swimming without the trick is a very high 46. I've heard low 45's are possible but not sub 45. So I practiced the trick thinking I would need it to beat the World Record. I had a decent game and had the score beat before 45 second swimming.

    Skeet has always been my enemy.

    As for finding HS, finding a T&F cab is probably the only way. Then find a HS board.

    Good luck on your hunt!

    Glad you found the TG forums!

    Hector

    Yeah, it's a Cocktail Track & Field cabinet and it is mine. I have never seen a Cocktail version of HS in person but I have seen a picture of one before. The Flyer for the game also mentions the dimensions of the HS cocktail cab. http://flyers.arcade-museum.com/?pag...d=2453&image=2

    I'm a bit out of practice again but I do plan on getting back to the game again.

    So you had the game set to continue of course?

    I got 14M on T&F in 1984 and at the time I thought it was awesome. LOL It just takes more time to beat it is all.

    I played a 32 hour game of T&F a couple years ago. End result was 29.9 mil. I got 5.2 mil on my first man. I was busy talking to a friend and tripped over a hurdle. Then to make that stupid loss of focus burn even more, I got all the way up to 12 mil before I lost another on accident. At that point I was killing them off intentionally on the High Jump to get my scoring rate up. So besides the intentional lost men I only lost 2 men in my first 12 mil on accident.

    I might try to up my 1 man score some time.

    I'm not saying I doubt this score, or that any illegal tactics were used, simply stating that typically you need the video to include the control panel during game play to show you didn't do something like use the pencil trick during parts of the game. I would suggest any future play back the camera back enough so that could be verified. Just a friendly suggestion...nothing else intended.

    I totally understand. There are numerous ways someone could cheat on this game. To be honest, a pencil would have been slower than what I was doing, and I can do the 100m on T&F under 7.60 with a pencil. I had the camera on just the screen because this was just a live stream and NOT a record attempt. I just happened to have a good game. By Tgs old rules the control panel showing isn't a requirement, but it was suggested to me by some refs when I was going for the T&F record.

    I do have dozens of HS & T&F videos showing the controls as I play. https://www.youtube.com/user/FlyHec These mean nothing and cant back up what wasn't showing on this video but it shows what I can do.
