HSC19 R10: SUMMER OF FUN!


Recommended Posts

Too many great posts above to respond to but thanks everyone for the tips and comments! Stick with Kik-Start and BMX Sim, you can improve and learn.  BMX sim just hang behind the computer and complete the races or pass him when he screws up  (same place each time - different as Racer 2). Use the banked turns and smooth out the curves - you can pass under the corner of that building on course 4. Kik-Start slow down for gates walls and bumpy ground, listen to the tones, jump to avoid the start pixels of the wall to slow down in air more - you can jump some small sections of wall etc if you have enough speed. I lilke to think using the wheelie helps me on the big jumps!  Topper had that annoying not moving punk a few times, perhaps if he is slow at the start of the level you need to get over there first. jad him block the middle a few times :mad:

 

Today's scores (not necessarily improvements!)

 

Preppie 18,790 (7.2)

fun challenge score for first 2 levels: 1,800 also had 1,790!

Still here just lacking Atari time, try and rectify that in this final week of play.

Mimo do you want to pick 5-7 games for the next poll? If so please post here soon!

Sorry, only just seen this. Been busy with hospital appointments etc etc and going away on a well needed holiday soon. So thanks for the offer but I think i'll pass. Doesn't seem fair if I'm not going to be around

OK, I can't help playing Star League Baseball again.  14-0 win this time.  Heat - Sluggers on both sides again.  It's not a +/- improvement or a higher total than my last score, but it was a shutout so I had to share :)

It is really well done.  I can see it being enjoyable when you figure it out.   I need a training video to figure out how to get a least 1 run in!

Ok, time for my Kik-Start scores.

 

I remember this game from my teens, but I don't recall playing it a lot.  It is obviously a frustrating one at times, although I did feel the longer I played the better I was getting.  What bothered me most was 'falling' on flat bricks.  I mean really? 

...

 

As an aside I found the practice course useless.  I wanted to play around with that brick consarnit!

 

?

I know I already gave the tip and you replied but go slow as the wall is narrow makes sense eh? now i though that consarnit was a typo but we can learn here in the HSC:

 

Consarnit is a truly wonderful word with the connotation that something negative has just happened. It's essentially the equivalent of saying "Damnit". Consarnit, I just dropped a hammer on my toe!

 

I like "darn it!" :)

I feel like it's a word that was popular a lot in the 40s/50s, and since it was Bugs Bunny's anniversary recently and I had been watching a few toons (I bought the Golden Collection DVDs 20ish years ago) I think it just affects my vocabulary in odd ways.  I'm not even sure they use that in any toons :)

I did play Skate Crazy:  got 1000.

I also played Skateboard in an emulator:  got 1630.  

 

(Note on Skateboard:  I played on my NTSC machine again and I was right, I did get 48, as there's no trailing zero when running it on an NTSC machine ?.  It's otherwise playable as long as you don't mind the background constantly glitching)

 

I didn't realize there was a Preppie! challenge.  That's my next task.  I did try to go back to Kik-Start but I just find it too frustrating.  I might also tackle BMX but I want to improve my Preppie! score in general anyway :)

layed after 5 beer

Love the beer mug!  Bayern and Arsenal are my fave soccer teams.  (I've tried following MLS and it was exciting when TFC was good, but I'd rather watch 2nd or 3rd division Euro soccer of MLS sadly)

Small improvement to preppie, played after 5 beer ;-) 11,440

 

Hoping that was a 5 o'clock beer and not 5 beers, maybe it calms the nerves and I should try it for the bike games!

 

Improve on BMX Rider 2 to 3,260  reached the last circuit a few times now but keep panicing and crashing!

 

Tables above now have some HSC points added - not updated scores since last time earlier today!

Skate Crazy the BASIC game from Atari User mag is not bad; like carlsson said calssic Hunchback sytle gameplay but really too hard on the third level with the conveyor belt, might play it again though! You can change the LE=1 on line 5000 to set the starting level !

2000

With my new found base stealing knowledge played SLB again as Sluggers, was doing terribly and had not scored a run though I did steal a couple of  bases then in the 9th innings... got the bases loaded and managed an impressive 4 runs. Good skill required to watch the balll while trying to sneak the bases. Not overly thrilling but it has it's moments!  Lost 4-7 :!:

 

So what's the Knuckles and No reliever business?

After the 7th you can change your starting pitcher to a knuckle baller. By default it's set to no reliever.

 

The computer always does. I normally will but if I haven't really thrown the fastball I don't bother.

Basically the Heat pitcher can only throw so many of those fastballs. So if you tire him out definitely switch
