49,620. Couldn't quite crack the 12:00 qualifying mark in the 100m Dash in the 2nd round. My best so far has been 12:05. That was achieved with the Track & Field controller. I've had an 8m 05 for the long jump. The optimal angle it seems for that is around 45 degrees. The hammer throw isn't too difficult, I've had a 95m25. Toss after 6 spins then get the angle to 41 degrees for the best result it seems. I might try a Slik Stik joystick just for the 100m Dash then switch to the T&F controller for the other events.

97,300. Used a joystick for this score. Had a 10:75 in the 100m Dash and an 8m61 in the Long Jump. For the 3rd round 11:00 is the qualifying time for the 100m Dash. My arm was toast by then and couldn't crack 11:00. Need to work on stamina, just like the 2600 version.

146,600. Ran a 9:62 100m Dash and had a 9m17 for the Long Jump. The qualifying time for the 400m in the 3rd round is 40:00, gonna be tuff, by then the arm is toast. I've been using a stock Coleco controller for the 100m Dash and the Long Jump, then switch to the T&F controller for the Hammer Throw and 400m run, then back etc. etc.. Trying to see if the game continues after the 3rd round.

Tried this on my emulator and could not come close to the time needed to advance... 


So I tried the supplied rom on my phoenix and the game locks up after 1 or 2 seconds of the races start.


I DO like this game and could set up my coleco and dig out the cart... etc etc etc...  - maybe I will


But for now I tried - score 0

The Hammer Throw is probably the easiest event. Count to six revolutions, time your release and slightly hold the button ever so briefly before releasing so the angle is 41--42 degrees. My best so far is 96m09. To qualify for the 3rd round its 95m. It's just timing and practice.

Finally gave up on the 2600 T&F controller and used my Edladdin Super Arcade Controller.  What a difference that makes!!  Although I still suck at the hammer throw and only had one successful throw out of three.  Need more practice.





Most excellent!
