    Finally, I defeated the 600k barrier, and with a flourish! Level 18 I managed to pass quite efficiently, transition to level 19 with tetris, with 127 lines and 600.*** points. In the next levels, two more tetrises were made. I am very happy about this, because now I can finally practice level 19 (overcoming the 600k barrier starting from 18 level was the assumption).

    I must finally set up my workstation and start recording my gameplays. Especially because I use two trick (one I saw yesterday, but it failed) quite hard to perform I have not seen before on any other gameplay (and I watched all the videos on the CTWC channel and many more on private channels).

  11. Doesn't FCEUX input lag horribly?
     
  12. I don't know because I don't have a actual console with CRT TV to compare.

    There are lags, but when it comes to the actual console connected to the LCD TV (by converting the analogue signal to digital, scaling the frame and so on). In the case of playing on the emulator, the conversion does not occur, so there are no lags.

    However, on the other hand, no emulator is able to 100% perfectly reproduce the work of a real console. Therefore, micro lags may occur, however, for other reasons. All the more so when it comes to synchronizing frame generation with the refresh rate of the monitor screen (VSync is not desirable).

    Try to play the PAL version on the PC, which the screen is refreshed at 60Hz and with VSync turned on — you'll know what I'm talking about.
     
  13. Didn't have much time to play Tetris for quite some time. So about a year later I eventually started again into it. After 6 days managed to beat my old record barely. Including getting a Tetris scored at Lv19 (I still barely manage maximum a few lines on it, though). Also swapped to Mesen. Definitely feels more accurate to be honest.

  14. That's awesome! More than once I've wondered how your Tetris playing was coming along. Its great to see that you found time to get back into it. Congrats on the PB and the lvl 19 Tetris! Looks like it's time to grind 19.

  16. So I did a thing, that's not special for most of you, but I'd love to see my name on that list. Please don't watch any of the rest of that video. :( :)

  17. Got a new best one. Including two Tetrises on 19 before misdropping. Was a pretty clean game without much fixing, but once. And was fortunate then to get the right pieces.

    Hey man. Yeah, I had life throw some really nasty curveball at me. Had to deal with some shit (and still kinda have to). So eventually found some time for more Tetris. We both started around the same time, right?

    For now I'm more focused on improving my 18. 19 is all good and such, but I don't exactly get consistently to it. Probably because I play too aggressively. I still play 19 as a warm-up for 10-15 minutes before every session. So my play is certainly getting slowly better there (50 lines is a record so far), but no pressure. Once I reach 18 regulary with ~500k transitions I will certainly go only 19 practice. Probably will take a little bit of time until then, though. Especially since I don't fully understand DAS just yet. I mean, I get that it's kind of a "recharge" for every movement the piece does - but I don't fully get how to manipulate it. Instead I just play and try to keep it permanently up.
    Since I got myself a new PC this year I might consider recording a session as well to show my play. Not spectacular, but its certainly improving.

  18. Congrats on the new PB!

    Yeah, we both started right about the same time.

    I've put an unreal amount of time into 19 starts. The upshot is that I now have the "Theoretical Maxout" if I combine my 18 start Transition bests and my best 19 starts or transition trainer games.

    Ultra aggression gets me into about 95% of my troubles in this game. Trying to find that balance every match is long term learning experience.

    I really recommend the 2 Tetris discord servers. The Classic Tetris Community and the Classic Tetris Monthly. CTM is a whole loadout of different online competitive Tetris events that anybody, no matter the skill level, can compete in. If youd like the invites, I'll direct message them to you.

    Recording gameplay or streaming live is really really cool. I started with just recirding and am now running a full fledged channel on Twitch. Alot of the community hold their own 1 on 1 matches and stuff.

    Twitch and discord have been an ongoing, excellent experiences for me in the Community.

    I can totally understand life throwing nasty curveballs. I've definitely been there a few times over the years. I hope things get better and stay better!
     
  19. It was so close to the new PB (starting from 18 level), but as always — Z-storm and drought have killed me... I had a chance to beat the barrier of 700k points.

    Bad luck is my best friend. ;)
