New score today, but I'm experimenting trying to clear the Galaxians only when they are swooping, which is netting me around 7500 every full round of 5 missions


81, 730 mission 53 - Galaxian level

Yup that's what I do. I even chip away at the flagship and shoot the debris to try and get a few more points. I've had over 9000 for the first 5 rounds doing this. I gets a lot harder to keep this up though  on later missions! LOL

Damn my wobbly screen!! LOL
I decided to have a quick blast on Gorf today, one of those 'not too bothered ain't gonna try hard' kind of goes, but got into the zone pretty quickly having not touched it for a few weeks.
Got to around 35k before I lost my first man due to the 'frame collapse' that happens now and then on my screen, resolved by repeated WHACKS on the side of the cabinet! (just like the good old days in the 70's with a defective TV).
Undeterred I carried on, and really hit my stride! Trying my best not to pay too much attention to my score, I got to mission 54 before Gorf told me to 'bite the dust Space Avenger'.
JUST SHY OF Bananaman's score. Ouch

Nice score. I've got jochens kit in mine at the moment which has the stupid hard version. I might have to uninstall it to get back on this.

Your not that far off mate...

The 'i'm just gonna have a quick blast' on games usually turn out the best games (does for me anyway) this is what happened on my big Roby score LOL....but when you put aside 'x' hours for a massive marathon game you usually bum out after around 15-20 mins (this usually happens to me a friggin lot LOL)

Huh?! I've got Jochen's kit in mine too! It doesn't seem any different. What's the easiest way to tell versions? I remember reading something about how they cluster in the middle on Space Warp is different.
While we're on though, on mine where G-O-R-F bounces onto the screen in attract mode, the letters are more pink than red, although the in-game colour red is a nice red. How's yours?
What version is it? And does yours have the network option? I was an eejut and got the basic model thinking I wouldn't be bothered about uploading high scores! LOL

Totally! Weird innit? The first part I mean. Marathon games for me are light years away! LOL

Just finished tidying up after fitting James' Switcher mod board, so had a quick go on this.

45,380 - I'm using Jochen's upload kit, which is way harder than standard Gorf romset, space warp in particular is stupidly hard (3 rocks at a time are launched once you are on Space Colonel. Need to have a sustained effort on this, to get used to the speed.

The invaders are in the static row by the time you get onto the Colonel loop.

I don't get it? I have Jochen's high score board too, that's what I got the 80k on.
Has he changed the software???

Hi GORF enthusiasts. 

I'm the one currently holding down the Four Quarters in Peckham high score on GORF at ~47K. The game was taken out of there some time ago. Simon do you have any updates on that? Will it ever be making a return? Could it not stand up to the drunken crowds? 

Also regarding these scores. It is my understanding that there are different difficulty settings to the game. As Simon mentioned the one at the 4Q was on the hardest setting. What are these scores being set on? The Twin Galaxies world record is certainly on an easier setting. This is all I could find for a "hard rom version": http://www.aurcade.com/games/format.aspx?id=496

Any information you guys have would be appreciated.

My gorf is currently using Jochen's upload kit which uses the same hard set. My top score on that is currently around 47k. The other scores from me were on my original boardset which is definitely easier

Just to reiterate, my 80k on here is on Jochen's hi-score kit, therefore not the easy romset!

I've got the high score online kit. I think its a great addition to have. I just need to get a bit more practise on it.
