### Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R1 - Jetpac

Having trouble setting up the keys for this in both beebem and b-em

Anyone know why in b-Em that redefining ctrl displays capslock instead, bug maybe? Might have to dig into the config file

All my real hardware is in storage and probably need caps replaced so only option is emulation for now

EDIT: Got it working in beeb-em

Oh wow, this thing is twitchy as!

Got to level 3 somehow... first level I hung around on the middle platform mostly, second level the right hand platform seems safer than the others, 3rd level I didn't make it far enough to judge...

Best score so far, great little game, although no-one remembers the BBC version, always go on about it on the Speccy.

### Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R1 - Jetpac

Not great but ok to start after a few plays. I remember a few seasons ago we played a very similar game, basically I think identical but slightly more screen movement. I liked that a lot too and I like this one a lot because of the good feeling of playing that one.....so....medium low score....

I had a quick go but realised I either need to remap keys like others have done, or use a real machine.

It's a fun game, the hardest bit is where you have to descend to get into the rocket. Now up to level 4... 31,465

Beeb-Em has an options menu item to remap Caps & Control to A & S... very handy specifically for this game.

Quick hack to change the controls to the "more usual" Z/X for left & right and * for thrust, might be helpful to somebody

I'm sure this never used to be this hard

Really struggling. Can't get past level 3 at all.

Didn't quite get past Level 3 but getting pretty good at maximizing each level, hardly ever miss a bonus item.

Slight improvement but still below top scores... playing without sound is interesting as the take off status is easily unnoticed.

Score: 29670
Level: 3
