Bermuda Triangle: NGFL High Score Challenge
priest
Yaaaaaay! The HSC / GOTW is back and what a comeback game! We're talking "oldschool" vertical shoot'em up here. Since this game is a rotary joystick game, I'm not sure how it handles in MAME and such with a regular stick or a joypad. Please join in the GOTW discussion about this game and good luck with your scores...

The rules:

* Play whichever version you like: ARCADE PCB / EMULATOR

* Difficulty: NORMAL

* Lives: Default setting

* Credits: 1

* Multiple runs as training is of course allowed. Also if you manage to surpass your previous score then just post it and I'll update the first post.

* No cheating with any kind of UNI-BIOS is allowed.

* Miss-using bugs or glitches in games in order to boost you score isn't allowed and if discovered will lead to disqualification of your score.

* No cheating in Emulators such as autofire, Pausing or infinite lives are allowed
(or any other effect you can use in emulators to make the game easier, score higher etc)

* Photographic proof is not needed as I believe that we are all honorable people. If you like though you can attach a photo or a mini-clip with your highscore.

* State which platform you played this game on.

* The goal: Highest score possible.

* How to present your highscore to make my work a lot easier, EXAMPLE:

User nickname: Score: , Character: , End level: , Difficulty level: ...and other facts


There will be no closing dates for the different HSC threads. They will always be there ready to accept new challengers. But I will start to award the winner a medal as soon as scores are posted. And as I said the challenge will always be there.

If you have ANY questions about this NGFL Highscore Challenge, don't hesitate to contakt Me (priest) who's the mod. for this thing...

Figured I would go ahead and get a jump on this and after staring at that gif for (too long) I did just that Thumbs Up

First off in Mame I know you can push tab on your keyboard and actually program a button for the dial which shocked me actually...however I always use a Hori fight stick 3 (I play a lot of fighters) and it really didn't help hahahaha but it was a blast I didn't make it very far at all so this will be a piece of cake for you guys...good luck friends!Joe

I noticed on my version of Mame that by default the difficulty is set to easy so I had to change it in the dip switches to normal.

Good to see some participation here! Thumbs Up

This game is actually more fun than I first thought! Controlling the huge hit box through masses of enemies and bullets while shooting with the rotary gun turret really is a blast for a while, despite the merciless difficulty. The whole time travel scenario is quite entertaining too, I wonder which eras come up later.

Murikov: Score: 137,410., Stage: 3, Played on: MAMEUI, Difficulty level: Normal

Just as Merlin said, it's very important to change the difficulty in the Test switch. Mine was also set on 'Easy' before I changed it.

This is an important point, as you control the very important gun turret with the rotary stick. But it's no problem if you're playing on MAME, just configure 'Positional Analog Dec' and 'Positional Analog Inc' in the Game Input settings of MAME (look at picture below).

Hey Merlin and Murikov and welcome to the HSC. Thanks to Murikov and Lavabeast for the info on how to configure the controlls to fully fit this gameThumbs Up

Since Merlin and Murikov set the DIPS to "normal", and Lavabeast played on default setting. WeŽll have two scoreboards for the time...

Scoreboad and medals are updated.
