    Submission Message
    Here is my submission for the TGTS settings track for the Arcade version of Contra. I played this on my Jasens Customs ADCAP supergun using a eightarc fusion ebony arcade stick for my inputs. I would have liked to have done this run in an arcade (Galloping Ghost Arcade), but the machine is set to default settings there.

    I do a power cycle right at the beginning of the submission video, then another after my run. Final score and initials entered at 33:30. The board and dip switches are shown after my run at approx 34:30 of the video.

    After the power cycle, I explain and demonstrate how the hidden timer works by letting it expire in the first level of a new run. If you have any questions about the timer, my setup, or my submission in general, please let me know!

    Final score/thumbs up:

    great job Pete! I thought you had some ways to go after you got more or less destroyed on the final boss section in your last submission.

    I love the point pressing spot on top of the mountain stage. That's something I want to try and will probably be the thing that pushed my PB above 2.2mill. I usually go to the top but that means each wave is only 2 men while your tactic nets your 4. 1000points more each wave. Amazing.

    your score are also top tier at the end of each stage.
    100k at the end of stage 1 (jungle)
    280k at the end of stage 2 (mountain)
    and milking about 250k out of boss #2
    is about as good as it gets.

    nice to see you use that stopwatch function on your phone. I do that too :D

    Very exciting run to watch, accepted

    ps: do the risky run and fetch another 100k in the second tunnels 8-)

    Great job Pete! You've got both Contra arcade records now. I figured it was a matter of time once you took Super Contra. I held them both before you. I know there's still a little room for improvement on this title. I'm pretty sure I had a game once with a score of 1,100,000+ on the final stage but died on the heart. I'm not sure I'll be attempting to take back either record soon though. Congrats!
