We play BBC micro games, using the standard BBC B version of the game unless there is a compelling reason to use a different version.
A disk image containing the version of the game to be used will be linked to in the first post of the thread for that round of the competition.
Games are chosen by the participants in the competition. Each player will nominate a gamein the game nomination thread. If a game has already been nominated then scores should be posted in that games thread.
Scores are to be posted in the thread for that game along with a screen shot or photograph of the screen showing the score. Scores must be obtained after the game has been nominated - no posting your best score from 1984!
Please cut and paste the following code, replacing NAME and SCORE with your name and score, in the relevant thread. This will enable the scorekeepers to simply cut and paste your score into the table.
Code: Select all
The high score table will be updated regularly, hopefully weekly so that you can keep up to date on how well (or badly) you are doing.
No cheating - at all! No cheat modes, pokes or exploits to be used at all. Anyone found cheating will be excluded from that round.
Using text, hex or graphical editors to create 'false' high scores is strictly forbidden.
Save states are not to be used.
Auto-fire - hmm. Personally I don't like it and have never used it but some people do. For now it's not allowed but if anyone wants to use it start a discussion in the gaming forum and this may change.
Points farming is not allowed. Standing next to a portal where infinite enemies emerge, shooting them using your infinite ammo supply for 17 hours straight does not sound like fun to me.
Scoring for the competition will probably be based on a percentage of the highest score submitted.
