I've been playing all the day (from 12:00 to 3:10 AM) and i could only finish the game once
....
How do some people complete that game on demand???

Practice?

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

Depends. If I'm pushing for time, I tend to be a lot closer to the limit, and I make more mistakes so finish fewer games. I'm also living more dangerously by trying to keep as close to the top as possible, so I get killed by overstacking quite a lot as well.

On the other hand, if I just want to get Gm and a super-fast time is less than an issue, I can afford to keep it a lot cleaner and concentrate on maintaining control of the stack until the finish. If I'm playing at 90-100% of my possible speed, I'll usually die well before 999, but if I want to finish I can afford to play at maybe 80%, and be much more relaxed, and I'll still get Gm.

The ability to complete games on demand is more the ability to complete games without having to ever exert yourself.

It is not that bad, I am sure if you stay on this mode, you will perform a GM 5 times per week at least...

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

This came easily and after a couple(!!) trials

Sometimes it is hard to believe this game isn't largely luck based. But i noticed that the longer I play the more I suck: (tiredness does count!)

I cannot do it without being 100% concentrated (already tried to play totally drunk: it definitly doedn't work).

I was rather surprised when I made it to the end (this is my first 20G Gm):

12 minutes of slow 20G is pretty mind-numbing, if you ask me. It'll be a while before I try to beat this record.

I do find getting TGM1 20G Gm to be a great training excercise for modes in other TGM's, though. It just takes a ton of patience to do it.

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

Good job!

Actually i'm able to do this, but my performance can vary a lot...

8. ### DeHackEdgreen Gm

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

Cool.

9. ### COL

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

i have been waiting this for months: under 12min !!

(i still need to play 3 hours in a row to get gm once )

Code:
Ai----------------- 999 @ 12:37:56 S9
125842...

Yet there will be no rant on how unfortunate I am. I didn't meet the level 300 and level 500 GM requirements.

10:48:35, yeah yeah.

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

Ugh... S4 around 525. From now on I'm going to just restart if I don't meet the early GM requirements.

15. ### COL

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

You are very close,it seems you may get it in a few days with little effort...

16. ### Ai

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

It will take a little longer than that. I play short sessions every now and then and I get easily frustrated by my inconsistent 20G play. Some days I play like a pro and other days I wonder if I truly am at GM level. Also during the days I play like a pro I easily lose focus suddenly and mess up very quickly.

I think I'll post a video of my 20G play in the near future. Maybe someone can analyze it. I'm definitely doing a lot of things wrong.

Still a lot to learn I'm afraid. But I'll make sure I get the grade before the end of the year.

mini-improvement

sub-11 will be harder than expected.

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

FINALLY!!!

Very very close as I was struggling for 150 levels at the top. A very satisfying day of TGM indeed!

19. ### COL

Re: [TGM1] (20G Code)

Excellent!!
