  1. Unless there's something I'm missing, I don't think so either. Since our scores are so close, I'm guessing we had the same strategy, I just missed a few more shots. Any chance you kept track of what you missed and can estimate the maximum possible score?
  2. Yeah, it doesn't seem possible to beat the fourth loop without losing a couple lives. Even if you hit every fuel tank, it won't be enough. The fifth loop is even worse. There's not even enough fuel to get you to the end of the first section.
  3. Haha, I was curious where my levels were at so I checked. My characters seem pretty powerful. Highest level is 24 and they all have a lot of magic. I guess that's what happens when you get stuck in an RPG, but continue playing anyway.
  4. I don't think having SCPS always means it's an Asian version. spacepup mentioned that SCPS is usually followed by 45 in Asian versions and that Parappa doesn't have the 45. I'd assume that's just the regular Japanese release. I seem to have a few SCPS games that don't have any of the signs of being an Asian release.
  5. It has been a long, long time since I played Wizardry V, but I don't recall having to do anything crazy like that to beat it. I think I just did what bronzeshield recommended. Keep trying until you get a lucky matchup. I don't think it took me too long. I'm not sure what my levels were though. I did spend a lot of time playing before getting to the end, so my characters might have been unusually powerful by that time.
  6. Yeah, getting the hang of nudging is pretty important. I found that I could almost always save the ball from going down the middle or the right side with nudging. The left still gives me some trouble. My strategy was pretty similar to what the guy in the video 0xDEAFC0DE posted did. I didn't make the shots that consistently though.
  7. I'd probably rank BoF over BoFII. BoFII had a very slow start and dragged on too long. I really didn't care for either of them though. Too tedious and unremarkable. Maybe I liked the original better just because it was shorter? I'd rank them as some of the worst RPGs on the system that I've played (I never spent much time with or played some of the ones with poor reputations though). I do like the other games in the series (III, IV, and Dragon Quarter, never played VI). It seems many fans of the series didn't like it, but Dragon Quarter is easily my favorite and I consider it one of the
  8. 99,999,999 This is one of my favorite Pinball games, so I thought I'd join in this week. This was easily my best game of Pin Bot ever. For the first time, I maxed out the score and looped the stages in the same game (I've accomplished these in separate games before, but never in the same game).
  9. I'm taking a look at some of my Asian versions and here are some of the differences I see: Different product IDs No barcode on the Asian ones The warning on the back is in English The other text on the back may all be in English Japanese Version says "USE IN JAPAN ONLY" while Asian version says "FOR HOME USE ONLY" A second manual is included written in Chinese and English
  10. Ah, yes, I'm pretty sure I got all the possible points from enemies as well. I can even get an "extra" gold in the first bonus stage. If you're quick enough, you can grab the last falling piece of gold from the Player 2 side after collecting the last piece on the player one side. This would make the total possible gold 96. I didn't go for it in the score I submitted, so that's why there's only 95 gold there.
  11. I played a bit more today and I'd guess it's slightly above 246,600. If I combined my best scores for every stage as if I did them in a single run, I believe that's what I would have gotten (I might be off by 50). That would be with all the possible gold and diamonds. The only way to improve it would be to finish the stages faster. There are a few stages that I think a better time might be possible, but I haven't been able to pull it off. Since each time unit remaining only gives 50 points, saving one or two time units in few stages won't increase the score dramatically.
  12. No, I didn't think that was allowed. I'll probably give that a try once the Action 53 vol. 4 comes out. I don't have a good 2 controller setup for my computer, so I'd rather wait to try it on the NES. I'm still playing though. I know I could get around 600 more points, but I doubt I'll be able to do it before the contest ends. I'm done. A higher score isn't happening tonight.
