Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

So Tricky, I was playing this just now and I actually destroyed everything on the first boss level without getting a bonus. Is part of the aim to try to get the 'alien' in the center of the boss to get the bonus, otherwise if you just destroy everything else, it also seems to go away but no bonus. I...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

OIher than artifacts of sprites being left on the screen, especially during the boss level, it seems to be playing and sounding as it should. Definitely no more racking up the scores. The bonus appears to be working correctly.

I think you are now down to cosmetics.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

I can confirm this on the blue swooping birds. The noise got weird but I died and couldn't tell you about further on yet. Edit: I can confirm that the weird sound continues on into the next game, even after turning sound off then on in Beeb-Em and it continues through the levels at least as far as t...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

I've had all the above bugs plus my score typically is in around what Tricky says but FS is a great player so he's probably managed a better score because of this. Also, if you have a redo of a level, more points are naturally involved.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

Ok Tricky, I tested this on my Master in 1.20 mode (I have Mark's switchable OSs), 1770 DFS and it still doesn't drop any aliens like on the old version on any of the first 5 levels. I thought I would retest the first file you put up. After a couple of false starts, I was able to get it to drop alie...

I’m playing on Beebem

I think the birds stop flying down once you’ve saved state
This happened the very first time I played this new version, no flying down on 1, 2 or 5 at all, just a straight shoot-em up to get to the boss stage.

Ok, I'm getting no diving birds at all. I'm playing this in Beeb-Em so perhaps we also need to include what we are testing on.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

So, on the boss level, I'm not getting any birds dropping down any more. They did that for a while but it might be that once the game has been played for a while, the birds cease dropping down? ok, I've revised this to the birds not dropping on the first 2 levels as well. Of course the big birds do ...

I'm really sorry, I am on holiday this week, so I should be able to give it some time! There is also the bug where no birds drop down, I just got this for the first time! As Paul said, no worries, it gives us a chance to help you out. It can be lonely doing everything yourself without outside suppo...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

Ok Tricky, I'm pretty good at games but...... I'm not THIS good...... The bug happened on the first boss level and all I had to do was keep shooting the center of the boss and it kept resetting my 8000. The only reason this score isn't way larger is because I stopped shooting. That's when it went to...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

The boss can be "tricky" ;) I usually try to clear one or both of the columns under the boss while it is high up and easier to see its bombs coming. Then clear a column at the side to remove the protective shield, before diving back to the middle to try to shoot the boss before dying. You are proba...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

Tricky, I'm assuming that is a new SSD that we should be using?

If so, perhaps we can test/play it to see what happens down the road. If there was a fault with the old SSD then, sorry guys, we'll have to start the high score for this game over.

Sound about right?

Final High Score Table updated for Season 11, 6th Round...... This is a game that I'll never play again. The collision detection just makes it too frustrating. However some did overcome that obstacle (and actually many others) and the one that did the best was Fwibbler [/color] who had quite a heal...

Given the comments about the game I was expecting much much worse than this. It is frustrating though. 7110 spooks1.jpg This would be an excellent game if the collision detection was fair and if it would be a bit less 'random'.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R6 - Spooks and Spiders

Yeh, just another fault of the game but the idea of this game wasn't bad, just the execution of it is somewhat suspect in it's logic.
