Records: [NES NTSC] A-Type

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

  1. How about an all-time Top Ten? Something like:

    1. TylerP - 1.298
    2. PMYA - 1.281
    3. Harry - 1.275
    4. Koryan - 1.273
    5. Koryan - 1.257
    6. JD - 1.255
    7. Jonas - 1.245
    8. Koryan - 1.244
    9. Berenyi - 1.239
    10. Berenyi - 1.230

    PS As I was checking on this I noticed that Koryan posted 25+0.63 as his earliest maxout, which puts him above JD in Kitaru's list (video here).

  2. Richard beat JD's 1.2, by around 70 or so points.
  3. @Classic Tetris WRs, @PMYA and @Adonis Mouse: please, create a separate thread dedicated to discussing world records above a million points, because it's getting a little messy here. This thread should only contain player entries so that we can view them conveniently. ;)
  4. Done. I put a list of various World Records here, and also what may or may not be the Top 20 recorded NTSC scores of all time. Thanks for your input. :)

  7. New PB - 885,477
    Got to level 29 with no lines so guessing 230 on lines

    I have a question for any reading this. What are the score benchmarks you want to be hitting in order to be on max out pace? In this game I transitioned at about 600k and played it real safe until I got to level 25 and saw I had a good chance to beat my personal best then I turned it on. Obviously burned too many lines 19-25. But I am curious where you want to be on transition and where you want to be at say level 25 etc. thanks!

  8. 560-600 transition is what you want for first max probably. On 25 you ideally want something close to 800, but it is possible to max with a very low 700 going into 25.
  9. What qualifies as an emulator? I play on nullpomino retro marathon type A using a keyboard. Is a score from that allowed?
  10. Does the leaderboard still updates lmao just asking
  11. Just bumped it up to 524,283! If it matters, haha.
  12. I just noticed that TylerP isn't on there; his WR score must be one of the fastest - not sure how to calculate it, but he had 986,920 at 185 lines and scored a Tetris to maxout.

    Chris Foryst has an up-to-date list of maxouters (it has 77 people on it, as opposed to 47 here).
  13. @Kitaru: when you updating the main table in the first post of this thread (and in the thread about the PAL version), you should also check @Phor's spreadsheets, because not all players report their record in this forum. Currently, the tables here are still out of date and cannot be relied on. I know it's more work, but it's worth spending more time for this.

    If you can't update the tables yourself in a such a way, somebody can give @Phor the moderator permission so that he can edit your posts and modify the tables.

  14. finally got something to report here... a slight betterment of my early max PR... no betterment in my high score total though:

    maxout at lvl 27 plus 1.55 lines:

  16. So the equation is:


    Where s=pre-maxout score; v=value of tetris/burn; t=number of lines cleared to reach maxout; and l=number of pre-maxout lines.

    Is that right?

    If so, I make Tyler P's 1.298 game (maxing out on Level 24) to have been at 186.744 lines (Level 24+6.744 lines). That's two lines behind Harry.

  17. I made a little excel calculator to figure all that out; you just have to enter the pre-maxout state and number of lines cleared to reach maxout:


    Also tacked on a final score calculator for non-game genied games. Can't attach excel file here, but it's on google drive. Or for final score there's this very pretty one, made by EricICX.

    I'm slowly coming back from the PAL version. I started playing the NTSC version for several days and just established a new PB from level 18. For now, I will stay with this version and I will probably play it until I get the max out. I hope it will happen soon. ;)
