  1. Welcome to the community, @Zeern

    A PCB player from the start? Solid. Are you using a cab or a supergun?

    Keep doing exactly that and you will have a GM in no time.
     
  2. An AV EX+ Control Box, one of these: https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=2551
    I switched out the Seimitsu stuff for Sanwa.
     
  3. That reminds me a lot of my Pana Custom. I also had to swap out Seimitsu components for Sanwa. Having an all-in-one solution like that is pretty convenient, but I really need to figure out what's causing the interference in the video signal on mine. I hope yours is better in that regard.
     
  4. No problems with video so far (fingers crossed), but the 3.5mm audio has a loud buzzing. Fortunately I tend to watch/listen to other things while playing.
     
  5. Yikes, $500 for a box that contains a $40 Gonbes scaler that doesn't handle 240p right...we gotta get you on that good OSSC shit!

  6. Man, you guys are hardcore. :D I'm happy with my Texmaster and my $60 joystick...for the moment.

    Hmm..... As a new member I should introduce myself here.
    A Senior 3 student who is preparing for the College entrance examination, which will be held next year. So I am always busy this time and I will not be active recently.

    1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player? ^^

    The reason why I want to play tetris is that I want to find something fun. When I was 7 years old I started to play tetris and I started to play Texmaster when I was about 11 years old. Maybe I am not the best player but I can say that I have done well so far.

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

    Mainly play Texmaster by my keyboard. I usually play when I am free. Maybe I play 1.5 hours a day on average.

    3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ^^) keep you busy?

    Hmm.... Touhou Project Games? Such as Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Imperishable Night. I recently play them.
    I also play Dancing Line on my mobile phone.

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

    Well, I don't know. Maybe I forgot it^^

    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

    In fact, I was introduced by my friends online. Such as AQ6174 and GAP. It is said that there are many foreign players who plays teteri well. Beacuse I am shy, I didn't post a message until this year.

  8. My name is Alice. I'm bad at games.

    1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player?

    I started playing Tetris because I enjoy high-APM games that require lighting fast decisions from players. Games that push players to go further and break their own boundaries.

    I wouldn't consider myself a great player by any means, but I think I have the capacity to be a great player if focus my efforts diligently.

    I haven't been playing for very long (I just started playing this summer), but I have a serious drive to improve and keep moving forward.
    To motivate myself, I created a challenge that I call the '30 before 30' challenge.

    That challenge requires me to:
    • Reach Level 30 in NEStris
    • Max Out in NEStris
    • Achieve GM in TGM, TAP, and Ti
    ...before the age of 30. Wish me luck, I'm probably going to need it.

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?
    I currently play Arika's Tetris the Grand Master Series alongside Tetris Friends, NEStris, and Nullpomino. My favorite Tetris is debatably TAP. I usually play for a couple of hours a day, off and on in between other games. Tetris has been a really healthy time killer for me when I'm matchmaking in other games.

    3. What other games besides Tetris keep you busy?
    I'm an avid member of the FGC, so a lot of the other games I play are fighting games. I've played the MvC series, Skullgirls, SF3S, SF2HF, SFIVAE, and SFV just to name a few. I just got into platform fighters, namely Super Smash Bros. Melee.

    Other than fighters, I enjoy MMORPGs, MOBAs, Racing Games, etc.
    Some of my favorites are TERA, DotA, and F-Zero GX.

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?
    Yep! I enjoy playing Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack) and Dr. Mario.

    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?
    Boom Tetris for Jeff
    I went to the Let's Play Gaming Expo in Irving Texas this summer and one of the NEStris players told me Tetris Concept was a great resource for promising Tetris players. Happy to be here!

  16. Hello all, I've been lurking here for some time so I suppose I should introduce myself...

    I started playing TGM about a year and a half ago when I found out that the game center near my (now former) work had a TI machine. I love puzzle games but otherwise have had limited experience with Tetris, so it was rough going for awhile.

    I am interested mainly in TI since it is the game I started on and the one that appeals to me the most, not to mention being the only TGM I had reasonable access to for a very long time. Currently, I am graded S5 in both (Classic) Master and Shirase; I mostly focused on Shirase until I hit the torikan, and now I'm trying to improve my master gameplay. I'm hoping to get confirmed S7 by the end of the year and perhaps shave off the ~15 seconds I need to lose to get past the Shirase torikan. I think I'm a couple of days away from Master S6, but every once in awhile I top out before 600 and ruin my running average...

  17. 1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player? ^^

    I just did, it was a small handheld computer that was laying around the house. I don't play that much and I consider myself one of the worst (/slowest) tetris players around.

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

    I live for 1986 DOS Tetris

    3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ^^) keep you busy?

    Usually some World of Warcraft.

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

    Fitting stuff into a small car is usually fun too.

    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

    Via muf, I figured I'd register an account on Tetrisconcept.net to check out other people's progress and interests :)

  18. Hi,
    I introduce myself with streightforward answering the questions.
    1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have played and if you consider yourself a great player?
    Why? Because it was fun from the beginning on the NES. So I started to play as a kid but forget about it when I was in Highschool and College, but now I play regularly for 5 years- so I think I'm an ambitious average player.

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?
    Usually Blocks from Hell and NES Tetris

    3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ^^) keep you busy?
    The old DOS stuff ... Duke Nukem 3D and Doom etc...

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?
    Hm... Dr. Mario for NES

    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?
    I heard about Texmaster and want to try it...

  19. 1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player? ^^

    While procrastinating exam study ~six months ago by watching a SSBM tournament, I suddenly wondered if competitive Tetris existed. I quickly found Tetris Friends and had a blast working my way up the 1v1 ranks. From there I started playing NES Tetris (after seeing the Tetris Classic tournament), TGM and a little bit of TAP. I am nowhere near how good I want to be yet.

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

    Right now I'm focusing on TGM, and I play about 10-30 minutes a day. I can achieve S4, and aim to achieve S9 before starting to learn TAP.

    3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ^^) keep you busy?

    I am currently trying to finish all of the old games I find interesting before playing newer titles. In the last six months I have finished Devil May Cry 1 and 3, God Hand, Vanquish, Super Mario Sunshine, Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, and The Wonderful 101. I also love local multiplayer Fifa, Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart.

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

    I often replay Jonathan Blow's puzzle games (Braid, The Witness), and I'm trying(!) to finish Stephen's Sausage Roll.

    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

    Googling for Tetris tips.
     
  20. 1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player? ^^

    Why did I start playing Tetris? Kind of a long story but due to life circumstances, I'm living with my Mother. She told me that she wanted to play Tetris. So I got a new computer and downloaded an emulator. I'm 30 years old, you see? As a kid, my mother did her very best for me...she always got me the gaming systems. NES, SNES, N64. Bless her soul, one of the games that I was given as a child, was Tetris...and I can remember her and my Father playing it and me being just disgusted by its perfection...so I never played...not at all. We live for Tetris now. A great player?...No. No...not at all. But I feel like I have potential. I've been playing for less than 100 days. My Ma has old school skills....Though I currently hold the high score between us. :)

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

    We play emulated NES NTSC type-A for several hours, everyday. Sometimes more than "several". Sometimes its a straight 10 hour Tetris binge. We switch it up between levels but we hover between 9 and 18.


    3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ^^) keep you busy?

    Currently? Original 1998 StarCraft and Kerbal Space Program (If you don't know about KSP and you're a full-blown nerd, like myself...then do yourself a favor...and check it out.). But I'm familiar with most old school games. Especially Computer games. Diablo, Age of Empires, Warcraft, Command and Conquer, Freelancer. WoW (Hosted my own server and lost most of my early 20's to it.)

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

    Ma loves'em. I'm not a big fan. Except maybe Bookworm. That's kinda puzzlish.


    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

    I stumbled across this website in my Tetris research. When I decide that I enjoy something...I spend the rest of my life looking for information concerning it. I said to Ma "I bet there are professional Tetris players and competitions." And she said "No way.". That's when I found the CTWC and "Ecstasy of Order". I want to be apart of the tight knit community, even if my scores are amateurish. Everyone seems so personable and friendly. How can I not be apart of that? Mayhap a bigger 100k-300k community?
