    Hardware/Settings in beginning, only one attempt.
    Yay!!!
    Man, I was stuck at 69k, had three games in a row that ended there-not making excuses, but the issues people complain about with the 5200 controller affect some games more than others, and it's pretty hard to stop Roderick exactly when you want him to stop, no autocenter at all...
    Patches on the 5200 aren't easy to come by, pretty tickled with this, and definitely proof that I am working on things that are important to me a little more, stinking up the scoreboard with "10 a days" a little less, lol!
    (Don't worry, I'm sure I'll get back to stinking it up for numbers eventually, just distracted from that notion, atm.)
    OK, so anyway, really excited about this one, the real cart is an honor to have, it's really, really nice looking-interestingly, the Activision 5200 carts are notoriously unreliable(thin pins), and Pitfall does not work on 2-port 5200's-most are 2 port, I think, mine is...no Pitfall for me..
    :P
    Thanks Everyone!!!

    You can tell, I think most of the times I die I'm obviously thinking "stop", and the dude just keeps on going...
    Proud to have gotten the patch score with the original controller, for sure, but I do think this one would benefit, "fair" wise from a WICO stick, which I have to admit I am mildly interested in, but...$$$
    I wish the original stick was easier to take apart and "sharpen up", but I'm afraid every time I open one, tbh.

    Thanks!!!

    I'm gonna get an actual mic soon, but I'm not so sure that's a good idea-
    You can tell I'm cursing myself more than the game, for being dumb, and now that I'm in my own World with these "personal challenges", I've really started giving myself a hard time, worse than direct competition with others!

    Hugger. I said Hugger.
    :D

    Thanks, Man, really tried, and proud of this one!!!

    Great run especially using those 5200 controllers. Voting yes.
    -Ohya, baby! I'm the first ever dude on the planet to get a documented PERFECT score on Bonk's Adventure!
    I also have a high score on Alfred Chicken.... yeah, not as good.

    Something has really been "missing", "different" around here the last couple months, IMO, affecting a lot of the site activity.

    I'm not the only one who missed you, Man, and I'm so glad to see you back, we NEED you around here.

    Lol-I was excited! "Personal Goals" are the #1 priority now!
    :)

    I'm also not sure how "Chicken d$%*" made it's way into my vernacular, but it seems to be a favorite...
