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 ends right then.  There were no Pause buttons in the arcades.

While playing most games, I use the arrow keys as the joystick and the numpad Enter key as the 'Jump' button.
While 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'.
While playing Tempest, I use the left and right arrows to move, the numpad Enter key for 'Fire', and the numpad 0 key for 'SuperZapper'.

A quick note:  All games' settings are Aurcade-compliant.

My New Year's Resolution (2018) was to beat all of my High Scores on this list.
I completed that Resolution when I finally beat my High Score on Donkey Kong on March 23, 2018.

I still can't believe that I actually beat my Lunar Lander High Score of 1,255!

Since I retired Galaga and Lunar Lander, I've added Tempest to the Active Games list.

With no further ado, here we go:

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

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