Hello, fellow Video Game enthusiasts;

I used to list my high scores in my signature but I kept running out of characters to list the scores like I wanted so I figured I'd make a list in a topic here on the forums.

I play on my PC using MAME 0.146.  If I use the Pause button for any reason, the game doesn't count.  There were no Pause buttons in the arcades.

When playing most games, I use the arrow keys as the joystick and the numpad Enter key as the 'Jump/Fire' button.
When playing Lunar Lander, I use the left and right arrows for rotation, the numpad Enter key for 'Thrust', and the numpad 0 key for 'Abort'.

A quick note:  All games' settings are Aurcade-compliant with one exception:  If you could do something during the game in the Arcade (getting Galaga's enemies to stop firing at you, etc.), then I consider this to be fair play.  I never intend to submit any of my scores to be recognized officially, so I will play the games as I played them (or at least, tried to) in the Arcade.

My New Year's Resolution (2018) is to beat all of my High Scores on this list.  I've beaten 2 of 4 thus far.  (Donkey Kong Jr (1x), Frogger (2x))
Lunar Lander is going to be tough to beat, though.

There used to be a 5th game on this list (Galaga), but, for some reason, the game no longer works, so it's been removed.

With no further ado, here we go:

Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons . . . for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.


Yes, I changed my handle.  I was never really happy with Vidiot.
