:lol: I'm using my own cabaret. They'll have at least one Pac Man cab there. Thanks for the support 8)

You're an inspiration John, keep up the hard work and best of luck for this year's attempts!
From Game&Watch to PS2 and Arcade in between, its been so much fun every single step of the way.

I enjoyed meeting you at the Expo. Thanks for letting me geek out there for a while. It was amazing watching you play. Next level stuff for sure.

When's your next attempt? If I was as close to doing it as you, I'd be unable to rest until I had I think!

I'm at most live events in the hope of nailing the perfect score.
My previous score (3,333,270) was because I lost a life on board 20 (8th key) just before the run to the splitscreen. Only 235 boards after :wink:
The Cosplay announcer screamed 'HELLO'! over the extremely loud PA and I jumped out of my skin. Life lost, no perfect :roll:

I hope you do make it to Manchester. Even though Blackpool didn't go your way, watching you play was amazing. Incredible skills.

God damn! I didn't realise Jon had beaten the record last year! Well done, chap. That's so legit.

Amazing.

Can a record be validated on an emulator?
Because I don't have an arcade machine at home ^^

There are (or were, it's been years since I checked) different categories for emulated and original hardware games.

Yes, its a different category for emulated versions, the official ones are always ran on a 100% original hardware arcade cab.(IE CRT screen, proper PCB)

Wow astounding stuff, thats some good skill there. I often wondered if I could study patterns, practice and see how I would go. Not looking for perfect score, but interested on if I could make it to a kill screen. Don't think I'd have it in me!!!!

Best of luck, I reckon with your determination, you'll do it!
