    4 Toggle Dip Switch

    1-2 = ON
    3-4 = UNUSED
    Note: The above Dip Switches, are not only the FACTORY DEFAULT settings, but are also the correct Twin Galaxies Tournament Settings for this title and will provide the following settings;
    Difficulty: Factory Default
    Starting Ships: 3
    Extra ship: Every 10,000 Points
    NOTE: This is the [TGTS] 5 ship variation. Once you lose your 5th ship then your game is over. Please submit your score at that point.

    Special Note: The TG board of directors has agreed that the technique of shooting down back-to-back command ships at the end of each stage has been deemed legally permissible and is not considered 'point scrabbing', after much consideration. This confirmation of TG's stance on this decision is dated 7/19/02.

    I love how the video "quality" went completely in the tank after the Youtube conversion. At lest we can still hear the beeps every 10,000 so we know where my score is.

    Man, nothin' like some good old black and white vector action like Asteroids. and the booming sounds. Star Castle fits in that category, too.

    With reading glasses on I can see the score just fine and it's great to see Richie's arcade getting some TGIS action.
    Nice work.
    Congrats.

    Hi Brian great score but I think you have cut yourself 100k short!
    I see 218,030 as the final score

    Wow, I'm an idiot. Yes it was 218,030. I hope I can edit my submission somehow. It would kill me to get rejected over something as trivial as that!
  6. 06-16-2015, 08:55 AM
    yah, i went back and checked. the screen shows 118 but you say 218.


    unfortunately you'll have to set this one to reject, also put the link in the reject me thread for better visibility.

    then resubmit this with correct score. there are no edits, so it requires new submission.

    Just finished watching. Great play but needs to be rejected. It's hard to see the score but I see deaths at 21k, 51k, 59k, 166k and 218,030. No big deal, just resubmit with the correct score. 107k on one ship. Nice!

    Ok. I'll resubmit. My own stupid fault. Great way to start off my first submission with TG! I guess I have to wait though, as my submission points dropped from 4 to 1.

    That won't take too long to get recouped.
    here is the fastest way to get yourself jump started back in the game.
    go to the submission list, look for OLDER submissions where folks have voted favorably with accepts, review the evidence yourself and vote.
    avoid the threads where there is debate or conflict while you are trying to get back on your submission feet...save those for when you have a point buffer.

    -LOL Oddly enough one of the first things I asked him when I walked into his place was "where's Star Castle?" Apparently they are hard to come by these days.
