HMMMmmm...

... around 4.500.000 pts. (4 scorecounter resets...)

I remember back in the years (1984 or similar) the arcade's manager kick me in the ass several times in different days because ha had to close the doors while I was still playing (it was not a 24-hrs-opened-arcade)  :D !
Suddenly he replaced the original board with the italian bootleg "ENU" ( an hack of "Venus" ) that could be set ONLY at the maximum difficulty dipswitch...
At that game I made *only* few hundred thousands of pts.

WELL
I just played on my New Monolith multi-emulator arcade cab... [ Mame 32 v0.106 ]
And was the *first* game, because I've not yet tried Gyruss on it :) !
That's it :

[ About Gyruss ]

I grew with classical / liric music, 'cause my fa' and bro' used to listen that genre.
But I also was kinda' "sidetracked" by some contemporary rock/fusion/electronic music, like almost all the young boys of my age used to listen at that time  ;D !
Pink Floyd, Toto, Dire Straits, Alan Parsons, ( and Jarre  ;) ) ...
So, one day in 1982 I came back home with a not-classical vynil and my brother was surprised (!!!), but after few minutes he immediately got the "essence"...
http://plum.cream.org/sky/sky2.htm
Well, I still own that disc (somewhere...), and I also have it in CD version...
WHY do I tell you that ?
 ;)
... please listen to the last track of the disc  ;)...
Ok, HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XG7dnI0bW90

... and you now know where Gyruss' sountrack came from !

SKY !!!
( btw: I also have 2 CD of guitar works played by the awesome Sky's guitarJohn Williams... that is NOT the mostly famous homonymous musician, the BEST Movie soundtracks' composer ;) )

I think Konami's musicians used to listen that track, and they really did a nice job throwing it into their BEST shooting arcade game !

I have to remind you 2 other things:

1> Gyruss have an OUTSTANDING electronic for the audio only :
a Zoran Z80 CPU, an Intel I8039, 5 General Instruments AY8910 PSG sound chips , and a DAC !!!

2> there's a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Konami Game Music Vol.1 - 28XA-85), released by Alfa Records on 25/06/1986...
WELL...
I AM STILL LOOKING FOR IT AND I WANT IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:( :o 8) :P :'( :shock: ;D :D

I just downloaded your INP file, and wached it
Impressive gameplay!

btw, would it be something to add the option to save your INP files in this highscore section?
I like to see others play

If you guy's want, i can host the files, create a folder accesible to web with an FTP account that can write there, or something like that

Excellent idea, though, it´s only possible when played on
