Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

Nice score, Ed =D> I really have a soft spot for this game, really glad it got chosen, had another attempt and had one of those leap frog moments getting to level 3 3rd time around. That's a great score FS (bows in humility). I know how hard that is to achieve. Wow, don't think you have to worry no...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

Well, still not the highest score but not too bad, so close to topping up. Had one baddie to beat on level 1, 3rd round and I think I would have achieved 70k.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

I really wish that I had made the time to get a beeb setup for this, rather than spending my game time on trying to move windows to an ssd! It was worth it in the end, but it seems I have missed a really good game. I think it came down to the brutality of the first level - I never completed it, I j...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

That first level, whether the first time around or 2nd I find to be the hardest level to complete. There are way more things that can go wrong that no matter how good your reflexes are, you will not be able to escape.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

Let me guess......3rd level 2nd time around? btw, your standards are good, that's a very good score. You are both now in touch with the top scores, it's not much more effort to achieve those. It's just mostly getting through that 3rd level unscathed the 2nd time in order to achieve 50+ type scores. ...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

Like the vid Ed, the only thing I would suggest is that climbing is faster when using two vines, which helps a lot on level 4 moving 2 locks if possible and also helps for a quicker finish and better bonus. Nice score FS. I agree with the climbing with 2 vines but it was funny, when I watched the v...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

I'm just finished uploading a demo video of achieving the first 4 levels and then bombing out poorly on the first level again....but there are more things to think about second time around. I have been around twice, narrowly losing on the 4th level the second time around, just not in this video. In ...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

Bumped it up just a bit......

Yes, Tricky, the freeze I'm getting only happens when I turn extremely abruptly, probably key roll-over effect and the program can't interpret that I'm guessing.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - Donkey Kong Jr.

I find that there is another bug in the game. If you change left/right directions too quickly, the game freezes and get the pleasure of starting over after either a hard reset on hardware or the same on emulator. It's annoying in that I had at least 2 games that would probably have beaten the score ...

Have now been around completely and got through level 1 again before crashing and burning. Wow Ed... Puts my measly 9600 to shame. I will give it another try at the weekend to see if I can break the 10000 barrier :-) Don't feel too bad Lee. I just finished level 4 again and got wiped out right on t...

...the monsters, try to knock them off with the apples and other objects that give you 400 points. The monsters yeild 800 points... Oh, I was trying to avoid that, thinking it was mild cheating - timing things to get an extra 400/800 seemed naughty ... but if you have to do it to clear a safe path,...

OK, I have Mark's 4 way OS switch and when I use the 1.2 OS, the characters are just fine. I also tested it on 3.50 and the characters were wonky.....so, Paul, if you have Mark's 4 way OS switch, use 1.2 to get everything right. If not, it's a good idea to get. It will make your Master more compati...
