    I had my son start to film my game before flipping at 10,000.000. I'm not sure which version the game is but I'm willing to verify and validate as needed. Also I can confirm my score was 11,956,000. The game durration was 5hrs 45minutes. I have 2 videos from my son's iPhone that I was unable to upload. Please let me know how I can get these videos to you.

    Hi Eli and welcome to Twin Galaxies. You have to upload the whole thing from the start to Twin Galaxies. A partial recording is not sufficient evidence for the score. A video of the entire gameplay is required, otherwise your submission will be rejected. Split your video into two or more parts if it's too big, then upload the files to TG by clicking on the "Add Video(s) Evidence" button that you can find on the top left corner of your first post.

    Welcome to Twin Galaxies Eli Carrabino.

    Sorry to tell you this but killing pterodactyl is not permitted plus you have incomplete video game recording for your submission. TG members will vote No on both accounts.

    No on the World Record because you used a glitch and it is considered a cheat, you did not know and you are new to Twin Galaxies. Please private message @redelf @Dbh they can tell you everything and help you to.
    The Pterodactyl BugIn the earlier Joust ROM versions, there was a bug that allowed you to easily kill pterodactyls as long as you could stand it. This bug was present in the red and yellow ROM versions, but was eliminated in the green version. You only get 1000 points for each pterodactyl, but with a little practice, you can rack up really high scores using this cheat.

    The bug can only be exploited on waves that have the center platform, after the lava troll is present (the fire burning on the lava shows he's there). First, kill all the enemies except for one Hunter (the grey buzzard-rider). Then, fly low over the lava until he gets caught by the lava troll. If he gets free, try again. As soon as he is caught, land on the center platform. Stay close to the middle of this platform. After a while, a pterodactyl will come after you; just point towards him while standing on the platform, and he will fly directly into your lance. In a while, you will start getting three pterodactyls on the screen at once. The only difficulty is in staying on the platform; if several come at you from the same direction, they can knock you off. If so, it is probably best to kill the Hunter and try again on the next appropriate wave.

    Eli Carrabino please take look at these Twin Galaxies memebers Joust Tournament record scores video You will learn a lot from these great players.

    Had to vote no due to incomplete video and the tery bug being used. Check out this video
    It shows the first 34 waves with commentary explaining how to improve your game without using the tery bug.

    In addition to the issues laid out above, tge scire was reported inaccurately anyway, so under any circumstances, a resubmission would be in order.

    The score as reported in this submission: 11,956,000

    The final score as shown within the footage: 11,195,600

    Voting no, however, Id love to see you take another crack at this, and submit the result. Its great to see some great scores on this classic arcade title!

    Not a requirement, but merely a recommendation, especially for runs that are more that just a few minutes, and more especially for minimarathons: Set your camera up on a tripod or a table. Adjudicators like to see the entire screen during the entire gameplay. It's best to avoid doing anything that will give a voter any reason to vote no or abstain, even if the reason they're voting no or abstaining is something that doesnt violate any rules.
