Is this the first keyboard+emu maxout or are there others?
Jani made it much before me and there also are probably others
Score: 999,999 (28+5.xx) not sure how to work this out exactly
Hardware: Emulator (Nestopia), SNES controller
Because you had zero posts before you posted that. It's spam protection. Post the video anyway and a mod will approve your post.
I still can't seem to do it, am I missing some formatting thing I need to do?
What error are you getting?
it says 404 file not found, it's a Twitch link
I just downloaded FCEUX to check on that one and it's the same thing: PAL plays slower (and easier) than NTSC.
You're not playing the PAL version; you're just playing the NTSC version on a PAL "console". Download the PAL (EU) ROM and try again.
Why are you capping the scores at 999,999? Wouldn't it be better for ranking to allow points past maxout?
Here are some high scores past 999.999 that I've noticed (with links to videos):
Koryan - 1,273,120
Joseph Saelee - 1,255,100
Jonas Neubauer - 1,245,200
Harry Hong - 1,200,607
Greentea Suitou - 1,133,960
Ben Mullen - 1,089,640
Koryan's is for sure the highest, but I'm not sure if that's the actual 'Top Six'.
Would anybody like to guess how many players have maxed out who aren't on this list? What's the world-wide all-time total?
There was a 1,298,840 by 1975TylerP. But nobody seems to know who he is
Wow, that's crazy! That's the World Record then - but do the main guys even know?
I just watched a bit of him playing, including a CTM deathmatch against Buco, with Joseph in the chat.
Here's the World Record vid:
He maxes out on Level 24, hitting a Tetris when on 986,920 at 185 lines (I guess Alex will work out the exact line; but I think that makes it the second earliest max out).
Amazing play. His stacking is so clean.
Getting closer, man. Don't think I will catch up to you, lol.
Been a while since my last improvement. But here we go - including a handful of lines done on 19. My 18 is becoming way better in consistency - albeit I still end up being too line-dependant too often as you can see in this run. But I was fortunate enough for things to work out. My 19 is at least at the point where I can survive some lines and get a tetris here and there.
588.000 points transition. Also dat 3:52 misdrop. Almost had me do a dirty tetris.

That looks like the right speed for level 19 - 30Hz drop
