Fuck yes. I thought I may go through this month without a PB improvement when my aim was to get at least really close to the 900k mark and now this:

Transition Score: 568845
Final Score: 948513

Video:

Super happy with this game. Good pace (albeit I had transition scores 100k higher), but pretty smooth gameplay overall. A bit lucky with pieces, some good digs. All in all 10/10 - would do again.
Additionally this is my first killscreen. Yes, I play pretty aggressive with points. If I wanted I naturally could've killscreened by just playing things safe.

Either way. Maxout, I'm aiming for you in may.

3. ### ImColm

New to NES Tetris but I'm pretty good at modern tetris:

Name: ImColm
Level: 15 start, 16 finish, exactly 100 lines
Hardware: emu
Final Score: 192351

Slow and steady progress. I'm currently starting at level 15. Died at level 16 here because I didn't think I was anywhere near 100 lines.

623573!
Name: Eddie (eddietheintern)
Level 18 start, level 19 finish (crazy high transition for me)
Hardware: laptop and emulator
I got an NES for my birthday, so now I'll get to start using some real hardware!

Updated. Please let me know if you see any issues.

As a reminder, this is an "earliest max" leaderboard; if you use the score submission form, please enter the information shown at the time of max. (e.g.: If you max at Level 27 with a tetris at 218 lines, enter that. Please do not enter that the game ended at Level 29 with 23X lines if you maxed earlier than that.)

(This is also an NES Tetris leaderboard; please do not enter scores for tetris.com or other unrelated games. )

That said, when the information is entered in the form correctly, it helped speed through the process immensely. Thanks to everyone for giving it a try, and thanks again to everyone that posts their scores here in this thread with all relevant info in a nicely organized format.

@Atze-Peng: I saw that you requested that your latest Level 19 PB not be added to the ranking, so I did not add this or your previous PB to my list. Please let me know if you would like them to be added.

Code:
29--furious programming-- 999,999 - 27+5.00 - EMU (18)
@Kitaru: this is a mistake — my best and only max out is submitted here.

I had 227 lines and 970.*** points — don't know exactly, so lets take the worst scenario, a 970.999 points. I hit a tetris, so the post max out score is 1.006.999 and the post max out level is 29. Using your calculations, the real max out result is 29+0.22 and this value should be used. I have to fix data in that post, because I used wrong level id to calculate post max out score (ok, done).

Later I wrote another post and showed a screenshot, but I didn't get to the max out. This post is not a new record submission, but only a demonstration that it could have happened if I had received one more longbar.

So please, fix it. Thank you!

8. ### Kitaru

@furious programming Makes sense, just a data entry mistake. Not sure why I entered another 999,999 there. Thanks for catching it. I'll correct that row so it shows the intended second-best score.

The worst case scenario would in fact be 970,000, as it is further from a max and as such benefits less from the fractional line rule. It's how I have it entered in the spreadsheet already, and will be reflected in the first post shortly.

EDIT: Now to figure out what the hell the data entry or score script did to give B14NK a max-out pace of 24+10.0...
EDIT2: B14NK's score is a 24+9.998, and the way the scoreboard printing function is choosing to limit decimal precision caused it to round up to a questionable 10.00. I'll think about what I want to do about it, the quick hack fix is to just increase the decimal precision.

Yeah, this is right. Another mistake — this time mine...

10. ### Kitaru

I chose to fix it by rounding the result during the fractional line calculation so the level adjustment occurs correctly right then and there. B14NK's score now displays as exactly Level 25.0 with the current decimal precision.

11. ### eddietheintern

This should be my last laptop/emulator record! I've just figured out my NES.
Score: 640124
Level 18 start, level 19 finish (~611K transition)
Hardware: laptop and emulator

Thanks for the consideration and generally for the hard work. I will probably go harder on 19 once I managed to get the maxout. When I can reach killscreen on 19 start while remaining to score, I will write in the other thread. Probably somewhere in fall I should be getting there and aiming for highscores on 19 starts.

Well, it is July and still no maxout. Tough luck, but I am still struggling to get a clean post-transition done. I do warm up on 19 and then usually play until I get around two 600k transitions, but yeah. On the bight side, I did improve my transition highscore twice:

677.419 Points:

695.999 Points:

So yeah, the maxout should be coming relatively soon.
