Re: Capcom's 1942 Arcade Machine

I got over 12.5 million in 1984 and will be trying to eclipse Martin Bedards WR in the future. His score is simply incredible. :win...

Re: Asteroids smashed in record numbers

Fantastic acheivement by John there. 8)
Scott Safran set the old mark many moons ago. It was such a special record and made moreso due to the fact that he was tragically killed in 1989.

Re: Problem At Work. Any Advice Please?

Like most large retail outlets, there is always a 'click' amongst the workforce. That includes the 'management'. Some supervisors have a big influence over their branch managers, so his/her professional judgement can be sometimes clouded. Chances are that you're not one of them and the decision on y...

Re: Pac man - Midway Arcade - New U.K record.

Well done on the score! But what's going on in that second photo? There are a few games that have a 'kill screen'. It's referred to being a 'Splitscreen' in Pac Man as this is pretty obvious due to the split of two halves that the program shows. It's due to a computer subroutine, the game has basic...

Re: Is Using 'Save State' Cheating?
