    I have no word for this.
    I can't congratz him, congratulate him like "oh yes kevin you are really something, you are really a god, you did in so few time what everybody else only dream to do..

    Admiting the suprematie of kevin with congratuling words would be just a no self respect for the time and the energy I invested for this game.

    I am a very very bad loser who can't stay happy in admiting a so violent defeat and frustration. I almost think that I have dreamt our meeting in London, 11 months ago, where you had a poor skill with only one or two serious score above me.

    So it is true that you are famous, your skill increase is unstopable, you should also be able to kill the last people who can be considered today as the last stronger one. I mean jago, c_t and DIGITAL.
    Every curves of progression are logarythmic, so I have no doubt you still have a lot of reserve to improve fast and powerfully in the next months.
  2. lol, what defeat ? I always thought tetris was a fight between you and the cpu
    heureusement you don't play street fighter IV lol

    How do I play Kevin's inp-file? When I load it it MameUI64 it says "out of sync".
  5. Ai


    Make sure to use shmupmametgm and delete/move .nv file in nvram folder.
  6. SYN7HOR

    SYN7HOR Drama Queen

    So at the prompt I try "mametgm64 -playback deathgm.inp", and all I get is a black screen.
  7. Ai


    Try this: mametgm64 tgm2p -playback deathgm.inp

    Can you get it working for your own .inp files? I'm not sure whether .inp files created with mametgm can be watched with mametgm64 and vice versa.

    Thank you, this worked.

    Strange though, shouldn't the playback (inp) file specify which game is to be replayed?
  9. COL


    omg this is insane...
    but if i remember correctly you had already told me you could complete M-roll rather often...
  10. Okay, here's some stuff:

    I just got a new record. It's still S8, but it's hella faster than the old one I have up here:


    I also got my first orange line. Sadly, it's S7:


    EDIT: See next post, luls

    edit: I'm starting to think I'll be M before the end of the year~
  13. Oi, nice games to both of you.
    I am absolutely positive I managed all the tetris requirements (was very careful to do so), but S7?! I was tetrising all the way through the end of the game :'(
  15. When you get S2, you need to do some combos to get S4 very quickly, then stack high until 700~750 is coming and then going back to tetrises/triples only.
    Check this video to see what I'm talking about:
    S2 at 648, S3 at 664 and S4 at 684

    I agree that the S1 --> S5 sequence is really weird, sometime you manage S2-S3-S4 so easily with a few lines and other time you struggle to get these grades with a lot of tripple /tetris.

    oh !! :sowsuser:
  17. Who is the player in that video?
  18. no idea, it's a video that was on the arika website and since I couldn't find it on youtube, I've uploaded it
  19. Edo

    Edo a.k.a. FSY

    If I'm not mistaken, that's the very first official Arika video demonstrating the GM grade; it was recorded not long after the game's release, and so by today's standards isn't really considered much of a superplay. The main game is played by 777, and the staff roll is played by jin8.

    Back on topic: TWF, there should be no need to combo in order to boost your grade. If you're not getting gold SK, then there's definitely room for improvement. Just tetris more...
  20. Yeah, it looks like I can probably afford to slow down a bit to make more tetrises, but I've usually not had a problem with S9 without gold SK. I was just really surprised that I didn't end up with S8 because I got S7 at like 920 and had a tetris after that.

    Oh well, I'll go better next time :p
