Also note that we are NOT cheating like that world champion, we play REAL Berzerk, Box pattern strictly forbidden !

And note that it's the 2nd ROM set..

Please enlighten me, what do you mean with "box pattern strictly forbidden!" ?

Box pattern:

Start at screen 1
Go out on the right, entering screen 2.
Go down, entering screen 3.
Go left, entering screen 4
Go up, entering screen 1
Go right, entereing screen 2 etc. etc. etc. etc.

That's how they got that world record. Why do it ? The mazes and position of the robots will always be the same every time....so instead of playing a video game you are brainlessly trying to repeat the same shooting and moving pattern. A bit like the "perfect" Pac Man game....

Quote from: Superully
although we have a couple of Berzerk owners around here, noone's put up a score yet (or have i missed it?). anyway, just had two quick games: reached 10,000 with five men on my first game, but then got killed off one by one quickly (sometimes the maze and robot layout sucks), had to try it again (this game is damn addictive) and scored even better :arrow:



no running around in circles btw (the berzerk owners know what i mean)

@Muerto: I was at Alternate this morning to get your SCSI cables. I don't know if you ever visited this "wonderful" company before, but generally I hate it but sometimes they just have stuff that I can't get anywhere close (fast) or have the best price.

Anyway, you have to order at a counter. Then you go to the "pick-up" counter and wait (long) for your stuff to come up.

There's a long queue there and your name is displayed on a beamer while your order is processed. (Compare to an Apple store where 1 person helps you from beginning to end).

Well after having seen EVERYONE who came BEHIND me walk away with their goods, I complained (it was 20 minutes already!) and asked what was going on. Then suddenly my order comes up, that is the keyboard that I had ordered for my sister-in-law. But no SCSI cables. A lot of talk between the guys, phonecalls etc. etc. I watched it for 5 more minutes and that was the end of my patience. So I ask again wtf is going on and I get a reply that the SCSI cables are not on stock. WTF ? You just typed in the order in your brilliant computer database and it showed ON STOCK.
So....I say, OK forget about the cables I'd like to pay for just the keyboard NOW. Next he explains that some manager has to come to get the two SCSI cables from the order and then process it further.

My reply: forget it ! And I walk away with my son (who was WAY bored after all this waiting.)

Anyway, to come to the point: sorry Michael, I don't have the SCSI cables for you. Try to get them from e-bay, it's often even cheaper.
