    Submission Message
    This game was played on 2/9/21 EST. I actively sought to activate the weapons van glitch (eliminating Enforcers and Dr. Torpedoes) at 6:50 of the video. The video shows point accumulation with out those vehicles and also how enemies apparently do not increase in frequency after the glitch is triggered. Also interesting to note...the water board became extremely easy to navigate without the threat of being torpedoed at high speeds and minimal barrel dropping boat traffic. Over an 8 minute span, from 28:31 to 26:31 I had an average score per minute of 14,253...3,000 more per minute than my 1.239 million submission that did not utilize the weapons van glitch. Also noticeable in this game is that once the weapons van glitch is triggered, no Enforcers are in the game so it become possible to step away from the machine without being shot by the Enforcer like the regular game.

    What is being measured/tracked here? The description and the rules don't say anything about "Points" or "High Score" or anything like that.

    the track was poorly made and rushed through (again) without community involvement however since its set up to require points as well as all the wall conversation around this i think we can determine it was meant to be points.

    I far would've rathered my offer for discussion where the experts write up the rules, and i would've gladly used my own points be taken up, but it is what it is, the time to argue the point is over.

    I understood that this thread was started for Spy Hunter weapons van glitch games only, noticed no one put a game up yet, so I submitted this one.

    i'm a big believer in complaining but then respecting the authority. Admin had previously removed jjt's right to create tracks but then returned it. once the track is here, i dont believe we users any longer have the right to overrule it if admin allows it. you are doing everyting properly. you've come into a tg drama from two different drama angles and are doing a great job of not letting it push you away, you're handling everything perfectly.

    I agree with Snowflake you're just taking advantage of opportunities to explore and track the nuances of this game. That's an important thing and needs support and frankly you have no responsibility to correct the tracking and such. It's just kind of a mess sometimes with the track creation and hashing out the presentation.

    Yeah I think the 2 tracks seemed to be made in haste for some reason. Can you explain clearly JJT your intentions?
    These should get renamed and have better readability in rules.

    They should have read something like.

    Arcade - Spy Hunter (Stand Up) - Points
    Arcade - Spy Hunter (Stand Up) - Glitches Allowed - Points

    =======================
    Rules:
    1. Players are allowed to use bugs/glitches

    Specifically, it is possible to get the game into a state where the difficulty no longer increases and you no longer see torpedo boats or enforcers. The bug can be triggered by "jumping" a broken bridge by getting out of a weapons van and riding on the right over the broken bridge when an enforcer is on the bridge or nearby.

    2. A complete video game recording is required and must be uploaded to Twin Galaxies

    3. Machine Setup Options (Set through service mode) must be shown in the video:
    * Difficulty Level : 3
    * 1st Extra Base Awarded at 30,000 points.
    * Extra Base Awarded Every 30,000 points up to a maximum of 3.

    Note: The above settings are not only the FACTORY DEFAULT settings, but are also the correct Twin Galaxies settings for this title.
    ========================

    I think the 'Stand Up' variation is a valid physical difference in what is a very long game.
    Why don't new tracks have to pass through an admin validation process? I actually have no clue how they get made.

    I uploaded a picture for it though, from the other track.
