HyperScore Challenge #59 - GALAGA (Arcade / M.A.M.E)

Recommended Posts



HyperScore Challenge #59 game is....  
Galaga (Namco rev. B )
(Arcade rom = galaga.zip) 

Deadline for this competition:  September 17th, 2017 at 6 PM CST http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/cst





1) How you place in the top 10 will net you points towards being the 2017 HyperScore Gamer of the Year!  

2) New challengers will get a chance to pick a game in the next poll  

3) Please use the correct rom for the competition. It is listed on the top of this post after the game name.  Parent roms will usually be selected for convenience.  For console games, you are free to use any official rom dump (no hacks, homebrew, etc.)

4) Use only 1 credit.  There are no continues, and once you get a game over you must start over from scratch.  Console games will consist of one "set of lives" or playing until you get your first "game over".  Please make sure to read the thread for each individual competition in case there are any special rules needed!

5) You must submit a screen shot or photo of your high score in a post here. MAME's default screenshot key is F12, which can be changed to any other key you like in its settings. Photos from a camera/phone are fine too.  You may submit a high score as many times as you wish. Your highest personal score will be the final score submitted. Only scores you achieved during the competition count (no high scores from last year, etc.!).

6) NO...
-save states
-hacks-autofire / turbo/ slow mo
-excessive pausing
-game genie
-voodoo dolling
-cheating of 
ANY kind  (on your honor).

7) No special dip switch settings. Please use all default settings for these. If you've never touched them or have no idea what they are, you are good to go! To make sure you are on default if you are unsure, delete the rom's INI, NVRAM, and CFG files inside MAME folders to be certain.  For console games, please leave everything on default settings unless otherwise noted in the challenge's thread.

8) Highest score wins. In case of a tie, first submitter wins.

9) Deadline is approximately TWO WEEKS from the start of the competition! This should give people more time to participate and rack up their scores! Please post your score before the end date and time!  This will be enforced, so please, no late entries.  Please note the timezone I am using is CST http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/cst .  This time zone will be used the entire year!\

10) Have fun!
