Arcade - Pit Fighter 1cc video and thoughts

I've finally managed to clear Pit Fighter! I used the "pitfight6" romset, as that is the one required for TG and also has the most score entries on MARP, as well. Unfortunately, this run can't be submitted to TG, as this was done on default settings; the MAME track for this game on TG calls for "Hardest" difficulty.

My INP can be downloaded from marp if you'd rather see it in your emulator. Recorded with wolfMAME .177:
I've included some of my thoughts in the video description on youtube, but I'd like to see others try out this game before dismissing it as a "button masher". This game is very hard to clear on 1 credit, as you only get 1 life bar for all 11 opponents. There are also a few advanced techniques, like cancelling punches into kicks, and cancelling moves into dashes to shorten recovery frames. I hope you'll give it a shot!

    You should create a track to get this into the scoreboard

    Thank you! That's not a bad idea, actually. A lot of the beatem'ups and fighting games have "hardest" settings on their TG scoring tracks - in my opinion, that not only dilutes the competition (scores from MARP/RetroUprising can't be compared to TG scores since they are default difficulty), but it scares away new blood, being so unforgiving to get any type of progress when games are set to hardest.
