    I got 4440 in under 30 seconds!

    Thanks for making the attempt and posting your inp.

    I made a video of your game play so members at TG can watch your great play ... (unfortunately TG does not allow previews of videos anymore so you will need to click on the link below.)



    I also took some screenshots of your game ...

    You broke the 2,000 points at 22 seconds with 2,150
    After 30 seconds your score was 2,800
    You brought all the frogs home after 35 seconds with 4,440



    You win the Mega Zone arcade machine from Starcade episode 245 in the two frames below ...



    That was excellent and thanks for posting your mini game. Now for the big game!

    This interview took place in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It's from a video game show and the entire episodes are on YouTube. I think there were only three ever made.

    Sure no problem! That is actually my opening board pattern! I timed it with a stopwatch and it was definitely under 30 seconds... I see what you did wrong (you forgot to start timing when I hit start) So I went back to the INP and looked at it frame by frame... Here are the results: Event Frame Time Score // Press Start 171fr 0.00s 0pts // Home #1 649fr 7.84s 630pts // Home #2 1023fr 13.97s 1470pts // Home #3 1249fr 17.67s 2150pts // Home #4 1589fr 23.25s 2800pts // Home #5 1943fr 29.05s 3440pts // Level 1 Completed 1946fr 29.10s 4440pts

    Yes spot on, the recording was from Video Game All Stars Episode 1, which was locally produced in Colorado Springs. And yes only 3 episodes were made, but it is great that they can be seen today. I wonder if Jerry is still around as he did a great presentation of Frogger on the show?

    Arcade Have a Go - at Twin Galaxies - on now!

    What a coincidence this is your opening board pattern!

    Thanks for providing this feedback. I checked my "recording" of your game and you are right that my times are wrong. I did start the timing correctly when you press start as shown in the video. The video on YouTube also stated it was 35 seconds. However the issue is I used a "screen" capture software which has slowed down the actual game play.

    I guess you used the F11 key for the frame count in MAME 0.186.

    I uploaded a more accurate recording (the old recording has been removed) ...



    And I provided some updated screen shots ... yes 4,440 in less than 30 seconds!
