    Hardware/Settings in beginning, attempt at 13:08.
    Planned to go much farther on this before resubmitting, still working on the patterns, haven't cracked the three car stage at all(I was even willing to try savestates on the EMU, but it doesn't seem to have them, just my luck...)(I don't ever do that, too lazy, actually).
    But I got my FinalGrom99 flashcart in the mail today, it's MUCH better than the Flashrom99 I was using, compatibility-wise, so I really want to explore some-frankly, there isn't a WHOLE lot I can do on the TI-99, so I'll probably do what I can, then come back to this to wrap it all up.
    Steve, OnlyinAJeep, linked me to a non accepted sub here of someone using a glitch, 200+K, I think?
    We can beat that, for real, just playing the game.
    I'm almost sure of it.
    Anyway-some patterns in the good run are on purpose, others are recoveries, haha, but it was the first time I cracked 30k, glad to beat my EMU score!
    Thanks Everyone!!!

    I remember having my own TI-99 when I was a child but I couldn't figure out how to use it. One thing I do remember was how the joysticks only seemed to work intermittently.

    I have real TI-99 sticks(I'm using an adaptor to use CX-40 style sticks), but I haven't messed with them much-my few attempts have been failures, I'll probably take them apart soon(you know-is like paddles on VCS, one plug, two sticks).
