Never...gets...old...

Well, I suppose I am thinking about game 2 now, so I wanted to make sure I still had it...

Yup. I do. It's burned in forever.

That's 2 on hardware, 1 on EMU.

NSFW, kinda struck me by surprise.


It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood.

:D

    I'm going to have a good day after watching your video, now, too! LOL! If there were a competition for most enjoyable submissions, you'd win, hands down. XD

    I dunno if you remember, on the Activision Anthology on PS1, for some reason Grand Prix produced faster times than the real game is capable of-to my knowledge so far, Dragster is the opposite, the game is so flawed that you can't run a good time.

    I'd have given up my left ball if that had been reversed, lol, as I was playing it when the issue was "hot"!

    To reach the level of "MarCRAP", the programming had to be very corrupt, by an incompetent programmer.

    I remember seeing something possibly(I really should research stuff before running my mouth...)that some/all(?)of the actual roms used to make the discs were PAL, and I guess some games didn't handle the translation properly, where others did?

    Pixel Perfect on Skiing still results in a 32.72(and the other tracks seem to match up as well), so I know some things are right, it's just strange.

    Mebbe managed an extra chicken on Freeway too, not sure which track.


    It was actually interesting, being-I don't want to say "knowledgable", that's a stretch, but experienced, at least, with how the timer should perform and seeing it do wonky numbers.


    So rather than incompetent programmer, how about oblivious to the effects of region changes.

    ...

    Yeah, I just got that, that does seem incompetent...

    :P

    Just analysed this run :-)

    Very slick! A good short session, I think that might have surprised you the most, getting into a long grind is a bit of a myth, hit the inputs and get the seeding and it won’t matter.

    Your shifts are a little different to your EMU run, only by a couple of frames, still within the 5.57 scope!

    Definitely a good lead up to game 2.

    Good Luck!!

    I know they aren't supposed to be, but for me, EMU and hardware really do seem a little different, and my timing is definitely different on the two.


    This was one where I was honestly just doing it "for the heck of it", didn't really pressure myself for a score, sometimes that really helps I think, just "doing it", not worrying about it.


    I'm only sorta committed to the game 2-You know I like to chase you on the Dragster, haha, and it's been on my list of "you can, if you try long enough", so I'm having some fun with it for a bit, is just a neat game to actually be "good at", as you well know!!!


    My Son just broke the stick I used for this, my primary, playing Chopper Command-I have a couple "OK" sticks, but am a little stressed, really hate to lose my best stick, I plan to take it apart tomorrow and see if I can fix it.


    He beat @Desidious 's sorry ass, tho, so was a successful run, lol, but bummed to lose the stick.

    :)

    Hoping he beats me next weekend and posts the score, so I can work on it again, but almost afraid to let him use my stick...

    :D

    Haha-others may not know, and I hope you caught it, was kinda an inside joke, with me actually knowing in private how much you dislike it!

    Bah, Millennials!!! ;)

    When it comes to classic controllers, the 2600 joystick is simply the best. Way better than those NES "baby toy" controllers.

    I have small hands so the SNES and nes controllers as well as handhelds are usually a perfect fit... the Duke for the original Xbox is ... not.
