I am back in operation now and will be getting these counted and released either today or tomorrow. I only had my phone to work with at home and I am not as good working with it. Now I am ...

    I’ve been wanting to get in on the donkey king action. I just bought this for next to nothing. It needs repaired but hopefully I’ll figure out how to get it going and will start chasing a kill screen soon.

    Something went goofy with my ESI. I noticed over the past couple of days it jumped 20 points. Based no my submissions I expected it to jump 1 or 2 points. I know in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter much, but I wanted to point it out just in case someone would want to check it out

    It took me a few months but I finally got to the magical 4,000 threshold this morning. I believe that puts me as a full member in terms of access and ability. ?

The moment of his return this will return to his hands. No torch has been passed, I am simply holding it for a season, ...

    I’ve noticed that each year there are awards handed out that are voted on by the community. I have been trying to figure out where we do that at but haven’t been able to find it. Has the process not started yet, or am I missing it? Could someone point me in the right direction?

    When attempting a 2 player record is it best to set up a separate account here for both of us, or just submit it under my name? The other person couldn't care less about being on the leader board, and to be honest isn't really that good. I just need them to get started, lol. The rules ...

    Is there more than one version of the Atari Flashback? I just found one and started playing and I noticed that some of the games that are on it have no records listed on TG, and are games I would expect people to love. Breakout and Yar's Revenge for example. I also noticed games listed on ...
  15. TG Swag

    10-16-2020 at 09:47 AM
    Perhaps it has been tried before and didn't work, but I would think that having a small "store" here at TG would generate some revenue. Twin Galaxies hats and t-shirts would surely sell. I for one would buy at least one.

    I noticed that I have one “wrong vote” (though I don’t understand why it was wrong). What happens if you vote wrong? I’m assuming there is a negative consequence to doing so.

    Are submissions only for new records, or is it ok to submit slightly under record scores? For example, if there are 10 people in the books for a game and my score would put me in the 5th spot us it ok to submit?
