Not part of our league?? With an original Gyruss game?? You should be!

It's where the cool gamers hang out 8-)

My excuse for not exceeding your score -- you have an original cabinet with one of those great original joystick. My joystick is basically a four-way pretending to be an 8 way stick. :FP:

Okay, wait!

If the ONE pic of your score is posted ... that's it, right? That's your submission, right!?!

AZA posted TWO pics so his first submitted score of 109,850 is his submission! Ha!

I was thinking about that rule -- I know some players got in trouble last season for doing that.

Maybe AZA was just posting a photo of a random Gyruss high score screen he came across on the Internet to inspire all of us to play harder and aim higher? Yes, it's a funny coincidence that the high score initials were AZA, that's why the Internet is so cool, you can find things like that. 8-)

Over at Twin Galaxies, there's an on-line tournament (MGL 30) and you can submit a screenshot of your high score every time you update your score in the thread:

http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread. ... oses-4-Dec)

I think people are accustomed to posting multiple photos, so for VFVL, I'm inclined to relax last season's rule - if someone decides to post an actual photo of their current high score to inspire and/or intimidate fellow VFVLeaguers, go for it -- what will be tracked/tabulated is your last post with photo and score submitted before the deadline (11:59EST Dec 3). That said, if there's strong feelings that we should retain the rule from last season (one photo only per score submission), we can stick with that, and people can continue to post other random high score photos they come across on the Internet, which reflect a score that is, or very close to, their current high score.

In other words, aim higher than 137700 :shock:

That was not mine, it was a test picture from Yellowmustard that I wanted to try cause he can't upload from his iPhone.

I can delete it if it makes you feel better ;-)

Nah, keep it -- it will inspire OTTOgd to set aside some game time tomorrow morning or late Saturday night. :)

Yes, keep the test photos coming, whether for yourself or a friend! -- just remember to post your actual high score photo before midnight this Saturday

No worries, we believe you ;-)

Great set-up! I like the cabinet style, and I see you've incorporated a spinner! Nice choice

Meh, best I could do. Was certainly a lot better after a few games, but probably not a game that I will play too often.

Here's the cab I'm playing on.

Got Sick pretty bad last week so only got to play 2 games today before heading to work. I was able to to score about 70K in the practice leading up to the game, but fair is fair and im gonna upload this score and take last place. Will definalty have a better showing in Donkey Kong. 41150 should be good for last place, btu hey at least I got the extra ship.

I also included a picture of my rig, which is a Track and Field Converted into MAME

I forgot about this until tonight, so here's the best I could do in a handful of attempts. 76050 :FP:

Here's a pic of my cab anyway. It's a restored/rebuilt Galaga with a 48-in-1 in it. It has a 4-way joystick, so that's my excuse for not having a great Gyruss high score. ;)

Great to see other top-notch multi-game set-ups - very nice machines Azatotht, Newfie, YellowMustard, delroy666, and OTTOgd! VFVL gamers are definitely well-equipped with a wide range of custom cabs in the battle for points!

Getting close to midnight, so time to lock in my score - 149250
