Incredible Pole Position Score!!

One of the channels I subscribed to a little while ago has just posted this video

It shows an amazing score of 63,000 pts on this game.

    It's OK. It's also why I replay my show a day later as it allows me to provide context & updates.

    I watched the run, which is absolutely blistering. LightBlue passed fewer cars (54 vs 58 passed by Greg). However, LightBlue finished 13 seconds faster than Greg.

    If I was still adjudicating, I wouldnt accept due to the unfortunate glitches. What do you guys think?

    I didn't frame by frame the video to see what the timer did. Maybe it's all good?

    This is why showing (approximately) console and cart here is almost useless due to the fact that anyone could cheat anyway, with a little commitment, lol.

    Visibly different inside, but technically the same.

    Maybe his console is overclocked. That would explain the speed....and the glitching. These carts don't die. They get dirty. Dirty carts don't behave like that. They behave like that when the console is running irregularly.

    But, who knows?.....Damn sketchy though!

    It's unfortunate for that player, and I hate to be the black cloud raining on a party, buuuuuuuuuttttt ... either his system or the cartridge is most certainly *not* OEM. I must admit, though ... I would be really interested in what hacked version he has, whether the hack is the console or the cartridge. I'd love to study it.



    Edit: I've conducted the same test on the PAL version. Zero difference in results. The game runs slower, but the timer also runs slower at the same rate.

    Edit #2: I've conducted the same test on a couple of hack versions, including the notorious hack kings, CCE, et al. Zero difference.

    I probably should put this on my wall as well.

    I'm curious. Are there any experts here that see something unusual in that footage? NO one has said anything so far?

    Can someone actually "see" that the game is moving faster? What are the clues?

    Hey John, in terms of gameplay there is no difference in his run, the visuals is the lap times, maybe the race distance is shortened somehow However there are a few instances were scores documented to have exceeded 62,000. There are a couple of links at Atariage.
