If your wanting a shot at some Bitcoin and the glory of taking down one of these monumental records, get on the ball because there are only 20 days left!
__________________________________________________ ___________________

In honor of the great video gaming legacy left behind by the late Jonas Neubauer, here is a bounty on some of the most insane scores, on some of the most popular and competitive games, by some of the best gamers to ever work a joystick.

$10 for beating Jon Tanahhill's 2017 Space Invaders World Record High Score
$10 for beating Michael Smith's 2012 World Record Frogger Score of 970,440

That's around $400 in total prize earnings across 12 Arcade Games and one NES Game.

All bounties to be paid in Bitcoin. The payout level tier system is completely arbitrary, payout amounts do not necessarily corelate with the difficulty of capturing said bounty.



RULES:

*Cant beat your own record

*Must be performed on Original Arcade Hardware

*PCB/Dipswitches must be shown for Arcade submissions

*Controller, Console and Game Cartridge must be shown at some point in the video for Console Submissions

*Entries must be submitted no later than Midnight Dec 25th 2021, Central Daylight Time

*All entries must be entered through Twin Galaxies' TGSAP verification system and must be accepted in order to receive winnings.

*Only one payout per track. In the event a WR is beaten by multiple people the payout will be
given to the person with the highest score.

*For the bounties which feature 2 records (Galaga, Asteroids) in the event that multiple people are able to
beat one or both records, in order to receive the payout a player must have the highest score on BOTH tracks, Tourney and Marathon.

*In general, bounties will not begin to be paid until December 26th. However, in the event a bounty is captured and it does not appear there is any relatively immediate active competition on said bounty, I may choose to pay that bounty early, at my own discretion. If this happens the active bounty for that track will be ended prior to Dec 25th upon payment of winnings to said gamer.

    Currently the NTSC Tetris Lines record is not really 312. It is 551 Lines and a total of around 50 people have gotten further than 2 lines past Lv 31 in a real game.

    So i wonder, will the bitcoins be awarded to the player that has the actual record or will it be given to the player that is at the top of the outdated leaderboard?

    i mean just as an example the score listed as the WR by Eric has around 20 lines scored on Lv29 speed which is not that much. i haven't played Lv29 speed for a bit as im practicing PAL for the European championship Top 8. but i just did my first 29 start (GG code that allows for the game to start on Lv 29 meant for practice) i just got 56 lines. and there are many better players than me.

    Also what is the response to people uploading their actual PBs in lines to the leaderboard? because its not standard to display bootup. or showing the setup. or even having a handcam. it would just be raw gameplay with maybe audio of button clicks. do they get the money? i have so many questions and i have inclination that the last week you'll see a couple people trying to snipe the WR with videos of less and less care for TG proof standards

    from above:

    *Controller, Console and Game Cartridge must be shown at some point in the video for Console Submissions

    *All entries must be entered through Twin Galaxies' TGSAP verification system and must be accepted in order to receive winnings.

    So it seems it'll be the score in the TG system and will have to pass adjudication...

    There we go. Got a run of 348 Lines in NES Tetris. (beating the record of 312 Lines.) Maybe I submitted a bit too soon though. I gave other players a target to beat. I keep thinking that maybe i could have withheld the run for a few hours, just to lure any people following the bounty into aiming too low and giving less time to adjust their aim. But now there is still plenty of time left for people to surpass my run.
