Another Ghostbusters Max-Out Attempt

Finally got a full day off so I'll be making another attempt to max-out Ghostbusters on Atari 2600, hoping the cart plays nice and today's the day it will finally happen!!

Will be starting around 3pm EST. Here's the link if anyone is interested....

    woooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! you go girl!!!!!!!!!!!

    drinking weekend so i cant join you, but i've been mulling this over. hypothetically, if someone i dont know, lets say me, wanted to dual stream with you and chat with you the whole time would that be fun?

    i'm no competitoin. i'd likely just restart many many times, but still be there at least.

    anyway, i dont know if this is friendly is jerk like. its a jerk to steal your glory but its a friend to team up. i can see both point of views. if you see it as friendly though let me know and i cant join you this time but maybe next? if you're amicable?

    I have no idea how to dual stream but I be up for it!! Don't care who gets the 'glory' if it gets maxed-out today, I just really want to see someone get some video evidence of it being maxed-out! Just re-filling my coffee and will be starting in about 5-10 minutes.

    i dont either. but @Ninglendo knows. when I and @TB-303 did the asteroids marathon we individually streamed, but glen then dual streamed us as a central stream point.

    I see the the reset switch issue reared it’s ugly head at the 270k Mark.

    At least I know now for sure that it's the game itself that's temperamental and not just my cart....possibly another attempt later tonight or tomorrow maybe!

    Maybe try using the select switch instead, pretty is not the game but more the Atari itself, I was using the select switch and it was resetting the game, then I started using the Reset switch and so far so good

    I've been using the Reset switch the whole time. I took my whole system apart and cleaned it inside out and will attempt to use the Select switch next time, hopefully that will do the trick!

    I see that it didn’t matter, can’t believe it keeps resetting!!
