Level 18 start
On NES hardware
Score: 1,221,960 points (198.3 lines max if i count correctly)
Hardware: Emulator (RetroArch)

Date: Jan 18 2020

I was thinking I was never gonna beat my PB - 548k four months ago - but slowly started to hit 500k more regularly, and then out of nowhere (I didn't play a game for two weeks) I beat it four times in four days. Two 551k scores, a 618k where I got to Level 27 (had never got to Level 24 before) and then a 620k transition game (with immediate fail on 19, sadly).
Hardware: Nestopia + laptop keyboard
18 Start - 28 Finish (222 Lines)
Hmmm. Having trouble getting the forum to link to the Twitch highlight...and the video is too big for my Youtube account.
Here is a pic until we can figure the video out. It sits right on my Twitch channel.

I hope the same for you, Raul!

Meh... only 2k more than the previous pb...
One Tetris from glory!
I have come so far that I could cry.
Uploading to Twitch and highlighting. Video available tomorrow afternoon!
I have the video segment uploaded to my Twitch account. If someone could let me know how to link the video to the forum, I'll get it posted up.
I guess just remove the space and fast forward to 23:55
Name: Emmanuel Solera
Score: 563457 (Level 9 Start, 19 End, 198 Lines)
Hardware: Emulator (Nestopia) with Hyperkin controller
563k at the transition is super solid score!
Little bit of 19 practice and 600k+ is right there for you.
Thank you Raul1138 !
Just a little bit of practice and you'll become a maxouter!
@Emmanuel Solera: how do you experience using Hyperkin? Is his D-Pad precise, or does pressing the down arrow work diagonally (down and side)?
Some time ago I was thinking about buying it, but on YouTube I found videos from unboxing and on them the owners showed that it has an imprecise D-Pad. It was almost impossible to squat in Ninja Gaiden, which is normally possible by pressing down arrow.
That's why I finally bought Data Frog, because I didn't have such problems with it, and besides it was much cheaper, so I could buy more controllers for the price of one Hyperkin.
Hey furious programming ! The D-Pad seems to me quite precise but it is hard to press it ; it is a little exhausting for the hand. Maybe I should try others controllers to compare and improve my game. Or I should get a real console and a CRT TV...
New final score PB, earliest max PB, and transition score PB, plus my first ever back to back!
Wow. Great to see all these long time tetrisconcepters hitting maxouts and high pbs. Congrats Eris, FP, Raul and Josh!
@Adonis Mouse Hey, thank you! Its been a long time coming!
