Title: Friendly competition!
Post by: Ozyr on November 10, 2007, 06:13:30 PM
I've noticed that of the small collection of games on the Arcade, there is a decent amount of competition to stay on top. Yeah, I know I'm at the top in about 1/2 the games (feel free to knock me down - #1 is not my goal - I'm just playing games - except Pacman, I will defend that one, I like playing it a lot).

I don't really play to be #1, I just like the game - especially PacMac (even though it doesn't play like real PacMan), Invaders (with pacdoc trying like crazy to beat my high score - go for it - it won't hurt my feelings), and Asteroids (somewhat used to that damn invisible space ship).

Game on...  :P

Glad you like the arcade  :)

I found it very suitable for the forum, as it is a forum about gaming. Unfortunately there are no Vpac/Ody ports for Flash yet ( or I have not been able to find them). I am working on a game right now but I don't have the time I would like to have. So progress is slow.

The OdyPacTris game is a first attempt just to get the right look & feel but of course it would never be possible on the real machine.

I also noticed PacDoc doing all the efforts to beat you. I wish him all the luck he needs, he deserves it by now  ;)

Yeah, the arcade is fun.

As for Pacdoc - you nut - keep playing. Eventually you'll beat my score - if your lucky!! (the game gets really tough as you approach 30,000 points!)

P.S. Pacdoc.... for Invaders, in the early levels, concentrate on the Red UFO at top. It really helps boost the score, especially when it gets you 250 or 300 points!

And he did it!  :D

Holy cow, more than did it! Well done pacdoc  :D I especially like the comment a few hours before when you were hot on the heals of ozyrs high scores!


Title: Re: Friendly competition!
Post by: Ozyr on November 11, 2007, 08:44:27 PM
Yeah, if you play any game long enough, you'll get there.

And as I predicted, he has stopped playing that game now. Someone will beat him eventually - no one stays #1 forever - part of life.

or in simple terms, whatever. I like playing it, when I can... simple as that.

Sad thing is, he has not posted once here. Common ya lurker, make a post!

Yup, and he is after my girlfriends highscore from OdyPacTris. About ten tries today, not even close  >:D

He'll win, in a few days. He is getting very good at it. I get the impression he is just here to play and beat everyone on the games. No posts yet, mr pacdoc!

If he's a Videopac/Odyssey2 collector it would be nice if he would post something, but he doesn't have to.

he is :-) one of the austrian collectors and he was also present at the "Tutankham release party" ... and don't worry janzl, he will not beat your girls highscore, I will ... (now that I reclaimed my donkey kong top spot ...)

Hi friends   ;)

Yes, I am the "new one" in this forum. Sorry for my "late" first posting and also sorry for bad english - I am an austrian collector (manopac mentioned it) and some members know me maybe from the Austro Con 2002.

I am really fascinated from the games of my childhood here (months and years I played in gambling halls) - so I played and played  - and I had never time to post. :)

Well, ozyr ? I never believed to reach more than 20000 - 30000 with Invaders but this one time it was a lucky game. I know I will never reach it again ? believe me.

OdyPactris is very fast now ? so I never can reach manopac here ? I think ? but I try  :D

It? s really a funny competition here and no fight ? we only want to play

I see that manopac is now our ?Donkey King? ? a little competition between ccc and manopac let me think on the video we have seen last time. Who will be the real ?Donkey King? ?  ;:)

Videopac was the system of my childhood ? therefore it will ever be in my heart. The next step then was Sinclair Spectrum and QL.

Thank you for these wonderful games and the forum.  :-*

Hi PacDoc,

Welcome to the forum. I think most of the people here got "stuck" in their videogame childhood. So this forum is a nice playground, especially with the Arcade  ;D.

Well, wish you all the luck playing and hope to see you around.

Ps If you like spectrum and old arcade-hall games, their are some nice emulators around.

Oh,yes -  sorry:  "King of Kong" is the correct name of the video. ;:)

Well - who will be the "King of Kong" at the end of this year ?

Any bets ?

pacdoc

P.S: I can also make a movie about this compedition with my videocam.
       The name: "The little King of Kong 2007"
        Let?s make a movie and have fun ;) ;)

Oh no, if you say it to me - no - I am too bad - Invaders was really a lucky chance. :D

Hi Janzl,

thanks, I have some emulators and it is really a good idea from all the retro-fans to live on the old systems in this way - but sometimes -  I have to play the games with the original hardware - these moments give me the real feeling back. :)

Ha! Just being funny, and trying to keep manopac on his toes.

Lucky or not, that is how you do it. I've been lucky on some of these games, but the Tetris game - for some reason I suck at this one. It goes okay, until I make one goof, then it goes kablam!

Hihi !

I know the problem - Level 14,15,16 on so on - too fast for me if you are not on the bottom or if you make a mistake - THE END

And therefore at the moment manopac is als the "King of Tetris"   :(

Yes, it was played in select movie theaters/cinema's in the US.  I tried to talk my wife into going but after reading the review she had no interest, she's not a gamer  :(

I don't know if it is still playing, I doubt it.  We have 4 Movie Theaters in town and only one of them had it.  Give it another 6 month's and it should be on DVD here in the USA.

it's supposed to be out on DVD on 2008/01/28

As I leave the country for a 3-month-trip in less than two weeks, I have to set as many top-positions as possible ... not that any one of those is likely to stay until I am back  ;)

3 months? Sounds nice! Where are you going?..

... and do they have internet?  >:D


Title: Re: Friendly competition!
Post by: manopac on November 13, 2007, 10:18:18 PM
South East Asia - Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapur, Indonesia ... or whereever I am able to go with my backpack in this few weeks :-)

and yes, they do ... but probably not for playing games ...

That would be a shame, as you really have to work on your OdyPacTris score  ;D ;)

Post by: Ozyr on December 22, 2007, 10:09:29 AM
Okay, Mr. Pacdoc, why are you trying to destroy my high scores!!! Wasn't Invaders good enough?

Oh well, someone's bound to beat my scores. It's part of life.... but I won't go down without a fight!  :P


Title: Re: Friendly competition!
Post by: Janzl on December 22, 2007, 10:41:42 AM
Well, I see the arcade is just doing what I meant it to do  >:D

Can't wait till we get the first Vpac/Ody multiplayer network game.

How about a FPS of Gunfighter/Showdown in 2100 A.D.  ;)

Because he cannot manage to beat my Cosmic Conflict high score - so he moved on to other games *gg* ;-)

Hi Ozyr,

nothing is happened - you are the king of pacman - be cool  ;)

Let?s  see what is going on. But you are the best  ;:) Four ghosts are to much for me.  :)
It would be nice to see you with Invaders again. It is so lonesome in the space without a competitor. :'(

We will see us again .

Hihihi, Imperator comes back - you will see it.  :D

I play here and then I play there but we see us again  ;)

I played it on the original console with the original joystick and I saw there is a possibility. I need a better ship (it is still ordered) and then ..... >:D

bye,
your Imperator-Doc

I see Pacdoc has finally been the one to beat my Duckhunt score! Thank you, as I hated being #1 in that game. You can play it 'forever'! When I played it a while back, I thought it would get tougher. It doesn't, it just goes on, and on, and on, and on.
I'm betting you played it for hours!  Personally, I won't play it again... (and I wouldn't miss it if it disappeared from this forum)!

Ack!
