    TRON WR Run Coming Soon...

    Hi,

    I knocked out 8,181,269 on TRON a couple weeks ago. The killer was I totally gave 2 lives away on 2 of the easiest boards in the game. So the WR is totally within reach at this point. All the work over the last year has paid off!

    Game was filmed legit for TG, so as soon as the start taking submissions, I'll send it in. Unless I pull off a higher score before then.

    I'm going to make a WR run in the next couple months. You can check out the 8,181,269 game on my twitch channel www.twitch.tv/JohnSalter.

    Later,
    John

    You can do this I feel sure. I do know it's not as easy as it may seem though. Save those two men and your well over 10M for sure.

    If you could get to the looping stage by your 2nd man and totally have the looping stage mastered then it would just be a matter of staying refreshed and not daydreaming.

    I can get to looping levels on my first man. That's pretty much the standard at this point. I blew it last game. Died stupid on recognizers shortly before looping levels on the 8.1 run.

    The 8.1 game was just supposed to be a 5M run. I got up at 7:15am, mowed lawns all day, and had some family stuff after that. Didn't start playing till 9:30pm. It was a twelve hour game. I was actually starting to see in 3D on the stage select screen. Just like when I was playing Armor Attack. The hallucinating starts shortly after that.

    The next legit run will start shortly after waking up. I shouldn't have any concentration/fatigue issues until close to the WR mark.

    It's funny you mention this. Just recently, when I was playing a long Mario Bros. game, I began to see the graphic in a neon lit way. I mean the screen levels were lit up and bright. It very easily could have ended my game but I shook my head a bit and tried to look away for a second and it went away. I wonder if wearing sun glasses would help.
