Awesome!! Would be nice to see a new leaderboard for scores over 999,999. The true high scores!

2. ### BDCowe

Well done, Tom! Keep the scores coming! Getting that first kill screen is super satisfying. You'll love it.

You do some great side projects for our NEStris/SNEStris community, Josh. Thanks for all of your work!

I don't know if this deserves/needs a separate thread, so just dropping in here for now.

A couple weeks ago I pieced together a maxout timeline (for date of first maxout starting sub-19 and 19) just out of curiosity. I don't have complete info. Some of you may know more. The ones in italics (Thor and Jonas) are the ones I had to make a guess on based on limited info. This also is relying on the honor system for some of the dates too - but it's a system I think we all more or less agree with. Let me know of any data here that you have better info on (especially if you are Thor or Jonas!).

Code:
Player---- Sub 19----- Level 19
Thor------ 1/1/1990--- 7/24/2010
Jonas----- 1/1/2003--- 4/4/2007
Harry----- 4/19/2009-- 2/15/2011
Buco------ 1/2/2012
Alex------ 5/17/2012
Eli------- 9/25/2012
Ben------- 10/7/2012
Quaid----- 1/22/2013-- 6/1/2013
Louie----- 3/29/2013
David----- 6/27/2013
Bo-------- 8/29/2013
Josh------ 12/2/2013
Terry----- 1/29/2014-- 9/1/2014
Jake------ 7/28/2014
Chris----- 9/16/2014
Jani------ 11/2/2014
Dana------ 12/1/2014

i love this list (even if it ranks me so low)!

my dates are, 1/29/14, and 19) is correct. i am also curious too see if jonas or thor update their dates...

Thanks - updated.

I also dug up the date of Jonas's first level 19 - it was in a youtube conversation.

It just occurred to me one day that I wasn't sure when a few people did it first in relative to others, and thought it would be interesting to see how long between each one and what time of year too. The thing I am most curious about of all is who is missing on this list - I feel like Scott Anderson should be on here too, for example... supposedly he did it way before Jonas (trying to find out).

13. ### beatniklew81

Another new personal best.

686,596 on level 21

I'm closing in on 700,000.

14. ### Svavar

The timeline is great! I think it deserves it's own thread. Would be nice to be able to check out that list easily.

Sorry if this is a bit of a silly question, but are we allowed to post any PBs we have on this thread, or do the scores have to exceed a certain amount? Also, do they have to be played on level 9 or 19 only, or can we start with whatever we're comfortable with?

My scores are too embarrassingly bad to post anyway, but I would like to know for future reference. Thanks!

Oh, and one more thing. Sorry if this is getting a little off-topic, but I just want to make sure. If I do eventually start getting to, say, level 29 or something, will there be any problems with me playing the game on an emulator as opposed to going all the way with an actual NES and a CRT TV and everything? I mean, aside from the fact that I wouldn't be getting any practice with a real controller.

I think I actually do have a random CRT just lying around, so that's pretty convenient, haha.

16. ### Kitaru

Any PB from any starting level is accepted. There is a separate Level 19 thread, but if someone's PB happens to be set on Level 19 then it'll just be listed in both threads, haha.

Emulator or clones systems are also accepted and marked as such for the purpose of this thread. A real/clone NES + CRT will be the most responsive, so that's really what you'll want in the long run. I've heard the homebrew emulator for Wii is also pretty good. All the emulators I've tried on PC unfortunately add some amount of delay, presumably by nature of how their graphics code is written.

Also, as with the PAL thread, I've updated the scoreboard! Sorry for the long wait since the last push!

Okay, thank you! Hopefully I'll have a halfway-decent score I can post up sometime soon. I have a long way to go before I'll really need to start practicing on an actual NES, but I should also probably check whether or not this TV actually works, just in case I get my hopes up for nothing. It has been just sitting here for years.

(Oh yeah, semi-sorta-unrelated, but I tried contacting you via this forum (since it seemed like the most convenient way) and couldn't. Wasn't sure if it was because PMs weren't working, or if it was because my account is too new, or if it was because you had them turned off. Whichever one of those things it happened to be... wouldn't let me message ya, haha.)
