Wow are those _STILL_ not arrived ?

I had a much better score when I used to still own my MC cabaret....



Give me a full size machine and I will even be better ;)

nope! but there's a reason for it: brian from gamestencils.com kindly "collects" arcade stuff from various sources for me and when enough stuff is at his place, he sends it over. there should be two huuuuuge boxes with tons of items on their way to germany as we speak, so brace yourself, michael. if i remember correctly, my personal best was something around 52.000, but i'm going to need some practise first after all those months!

it will - believe me :twisted:

the problem with missile command is that it is DEFINITELY a game which gives right-handed players an advantage, because success depends on precise and fast movement - difficult when you're left-handed!

unfortunately that ain't working in my favor! movement is too restricted.

Hæh, that was quite fun to hear, but, i think he´s score is genuine because of all these claims he makes...
He even tried to get a head to head competition, but without any luck, and, the matter that Billy and Walter don´t want to discuss anything regarding Roy is total bull! - which clearly shows something is wrong!
I don´t know the story with Roy VS. Walter/Billy/TG, but i don´t thing the man has been given a fair chance to prove him self.... sorta like Steve did´nt get any recognition once he beat Billy´h HS on DK..... (and that alone was based on a return adress which had Roy´s name on it........)

EDIT
Ill check that tomorrow, but i get bonus citys every 10.000PTS

Wow. Nice. But you got a full-size upright, plays much easier than my former cabaret ;)

You´re right about that, it´s easier to play with the big trackball, though it could need some new barrings.....
