Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Skirmish

I just got that bug. First time. Annoying! I'm a long way off my best this week. It's not a game that rewards caution. Or recklessness. There's a fine line. I've come close to my best about 3 times but just can't get over the hump. I feel if I do, we'll actually be competing but...... Yes, caution ...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Skirmish

First time I played this, aside from briefly trying it out, while going through game disks to see what was on them etc. (long ago, ca. 1995). Scored 57k or so, then a game where I was going perfectly and at 29k all riders gone but 1 bird kept bouncing between the 2 top platforms and so the level co...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Skirmish

If the aim of the game was to hit the other birds in the bottom then I would be the ultimate champion... As it is I can't seem to progress past level 4 :oops: Level 4 is where they introduce the 'blue' men on the birds. They are a bit quicker so you have to plan how you're going to get them on the ...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Skirmish

Well, I'm really busy again but this round will still be going during the Manchester ABug so expect my score around then. Of course and it will still be way better than my score. I checked out Season 2..... I had 49,000, you had something like 149,000. I have no idea how I got even to 49,000 when I...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Skirmish

For this game I'm using W, E, <RETURN>. This allows fairly easy familiarity with the keyboard, similar to Z, X, <RETURN> but of course the game maker didn't think to use the most common usage of keys going so we have W, E instead. A score to start us off with this one. I'm terribly good at this one ...

Re: Master Keyboard Issue - need expert opinions

Just a follow up comment. Had the Master running for 3 days with no sign of problems. Perhaps s/w was causing some issues or because my Master is around a couple of Windows machines, it's being affected by osmosis.
