    accept.
    oh, oh! you guys are makin' this score track rowdy! :)

    I'll get my system hooked up to a bigger tv and anchor those controllers down better to a table top and give it a go.
    PS- on diff 0 i've been up in the 800k range. can you break 1 mil on diff 0?

    Level 40 feels like some kind of weird kill screen. All 3 of us ended there.

    level 40 on diff 1 seems to be pretty much the ceiling. the lightning bolts are unreasonable to shoot out of the air. so it all comes down to how lucky a person gets with the randomization on the tank and brain stages from 30 to 40. 35 can be a real bugger.

    on difficulty 0 the bolts are a bit less brazen and once i snuck past 40 it felt like the game slowed up a bit which made it fairly easy to hit 65.
    atari 7800 is a superior port but this is fun since it has some interest going.
    will anyone hit the magic million on difficulty 1?????

    Mike, how do you get the colors to be so vibrant and have great contrast?
    I figured out how to hook the 5200 to our 40ish inch flat screen TV, but the colors are still dull. Definitely easier to see what's going on with the brain waves, but the colors being dull makes it so the electrodes are almost invisible.

    thanks

    I am new to the whole camcorder thing but if you record in hd and can totally eliminate all of the glare and reflections from lights & windows it helps a lot.
    Try different camera angles and settings on your tv and see which one looks better.
    I am a big fan of direct recording from the Atari coax to a full size dvd burner (but my dvd burner died)
    Good luck...
    David has the score to beat.
