Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

Level 19-28 are much more relaxed here than on NES, -- not easy, but not as stressing -- but I see Level 29 is still a huge bitch.

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

I should not but here is the best strategy (easy to guess I think)
You have to think exactely opposited to TGM : during the 280-290 section, you have to empty the center of the stack and prepare very high wings, try to be as high as possible on the 1-2-9-10th row when you are at 289.

ofcourse I have not added your points on the points leaderboard because I guess you were not trying for a best score performance.

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

Right, I use a similar stacking strategy on NES sometimes.

Also yeah I was more concerned with passing levels 19-28 than I was with getting tetrises during this time.

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

I will find the photo later but I think my 550k has been done in dying around 270-280.

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

Ben, are you able to record videos? If so, it would be nice to see 2 good players playing Mixed Match...

8. ### BenMullen

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

In Dr. ario

Yeah... I'm no John Byram (my roomate) when it come to dr. mario. But i fancy myself as pretty darn good head to head! do you mean video recording head to head dr. mario challenges?

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

I hate them, they are just bullshit for me.
I can't describe what I think about their shitty concept of record guiness.

I attended to one of their contest on TGM1.

Ofcourse I gave the best score of the groupe with a GM around 11:00.
And the second best player after me was only S2.
they was able to watch the inp, I also proposed them to watch some other video I had on youtube about TGM2.
And they simply rejected my score because I was not using exactely the version of MAME they wanted me to use.
And at the end of the story they officially announced that the winner and the strongest known player was this poor S2 guy.

They suck, they are just amator guys. If they were a bit intelligent they would have noticed that there is a strong and huge community of TGM and would have admited that this contest had no sens.
But instead they prefered to ignore my presence and what I was trying to explain to them.

(edit : updated 1st post with a photo of the 550K)

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

How many games are reviewed on their website? Thousands? They simply CANNOT be aware of every detail of every game, nor every community of hardcore gamers. To keep things "official", they have set precise rules, and expect everyone to follow them; what's the matter with that? From their point of view their reaction is logical: some guy send a legit video, and another didn't while bragging all around and claiming he can do 5 times better: of course they choose the "legit" guy.

The "rules are rules" concept of records makes sense to me. (No need to explain me that many scores on TG are bogus, I already know it...)

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

reminds me the story about that girl that had beaten the nes tetris world record on twin galaxie.
I first thought "wow" then thought "why won't you give it a try ?" and after beating her record on my first attempt thought "okay, bulls*** site"

lets make a "hating on TG thread"

no.

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

What about divvying the responsibility of officiality to that game's community?

i.e. for game x, ask community x to be the judge/set rules.

17. ### Kitaru

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

It would make sense to at least consult the community around a game before making strange decisions. Disabling score-based extra lives in a game where suiciding is a crucial scoring and difficulty control strategy? Playing for a score in a game played for time? *sigh*

18. ### BenMullen

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

so... I've never played SNES Tetris but I'm getting it as a Christmas gift in december... I've watched a few videosand looked at scoring charts; It seems like 390 is very much possible in this game in terms of lines and as such it also seems that a maxout would therefore be significantly easier than on NES... Am I incorrect in this? I know that the post level 29 play is hard than NES level 19, but i looks survivable, although a good number of great players do still die right then and there... do i stand a chance at 390 at all? does anyone?

19. ### Kitaru

Re: Tetris & Dr. Mario

It _would_ be an easier max-out... but then the level multiplier in the score formula has to go and max out at 10! That's right, you don't get any extra points for higher levels after 9.

Level 29 is a lot more playable here, but it is still damn stiff! If you haven't already, check out DanZ's YouTube for his Tetris + Dr. Mario stuff. He has one video where he gets ~350 lines.
