Records: [NES NTSC] A-Type

Thread in 'Competition' started by Kitaru, 24 Feb 2012.

  1. Something I don't understand: Harry says he was the first person to "officially" max out in 2009 - but there's a video of Jonas maxing out that was uploaded to Trey's youtube channel in November 2006:

    What's wrong with this video? Why wasn't it recognised?
  2. Sorry again for posting again, but PB's happen when they happen, sometimes insanely often, sometimes not for a year. This was - once again - a pretty fast new PB.

    The tips I learned during the Southern Qualifier have really helped. Hopefully I can max before Portland!

  6. it wasn't recognized in the Guiness world records because there wasn't a camera to show the console + video quality wasn't great.
    tbf harry's video quality isn't any better, but TL;DR it was because it wasn't recognized by Guiness world records (lol) that it isn't "official"

    Nowadays of course our standards have relaxed in some ways and tightened in others. For e.g, an emulator maxout, especially with keyboard in 2005 would have been considered not official but now you could use retroarch + runahead + keyboard + crt to get an "easier" game than console and maxout and no one would blink an eyelid.

    In fact there's a video of Jonas 19 maxing before Harry 18 maxed.

  9. Boom! I finally got that 15 to 19 500k I've been craving. Wasn't so amazing up to 'transition' - I had a game earlier where I hit 414k by 99 lines, and this one was about 60k down on that - but 16 to 18 was solid. Then 19 took me by surprise and I didn't get as many as I should have done. But, what the hey, I've been wanting this for months. Level 15 days are finally over. :)
