    Hardware/Settings in beginning, game at 4:40. @Desidious scared me away from this one early in my Atari adventures, and I DO understand-getting a good time is one very frustrating experience, you know exactly what you have to do, but... Darnit!!!(Repeat, repeat, repeat...).
    Up my alley though, and I suppose me getting around to it was inevitable.
    I get most of my Atari carts from a game store a couple towns away, and for being middle-of-nowhere, have had good luck getting carts I want(I really just buy every one I don't have, there just a buck, lol!),but Barnstorming was one they just never had, and I probably played it(unsuccessfully)as much as any other game as a kid in the 80's, rivaling Sneek and Peek, Spider-Man[coming soon... ;) ], E.T.-Have I mentioned, I like E.T.? I just do.), so I really wanted it.
    My oldest Daughter got it for me for my Birthday, shipped online a few months ago, and it mostly just looked nice in my Activision collection. :) (Side-note, Dragster was another that just never showed up in the store, My lil Sis Samantha Amazon'ed that one for me, haha!)).
    Anyway, anyway-Hey! I got a pretty good time on Barnstorming!!! Noone told me the game was actually pretty fun!
    Got it in my head yesterday evening to play this one, wanted to break 33 seconds, then just kept pushing my personal goal up bit by bit-I know the queue is full, am trying to limit myself to one sub a day-I will likely try to do better and push this up, still new to a game I like, but am very happy with this time.
    Thanks Everyone!!!

    FYI E.T. does suck, but to be fair not quite as hard as everyone claims. The issue is you MUST read the manaul. Its impossible to figure the game out just by playing and thats what really turns a lot of people off. Read the manual, and it still kinda bad but not terrible.

    It's Dragster in the sky!

    I also couldn't find a local copy of Barnstorming, so I grabbed a copy off from eBay to try my hand at it, but I might need a break from Activision titles for a while...

    I can see that this game definitely required a lot of practice - good job in pulling out a 32.77!

    Thanks Guys!

    Hehe, Patch Collecting, IRL and on the Scoreboard is definitely something I am interested in pursuing bit by bit!

    I saw on NaDs .74 run the time differentials you posted, Greg, interesting.
    I know this kind of stuff is tough to believe, lol, but I probably played Dragster for a week before I knew/read/realized that you could only hit certain numbers.


    I sooo want to turn my TV on it's side and try to play this...
    ;)
