OMG! 70k ;)
That's a lot more than mine :)
I've been playing with a arcade-like joystick, my right forearm is burning, but I finally got 100k and put my name in the first place! :-)
I have to be honest with you, I cheated. But I'm not sure if it contributed to my score. My cheat was: after finishing the stage 2 I paused and rested my right arm for one minute. But as a side effect I think I lost my "warm-up"... I lost a life early in the stage 3, all the powerups was gone, and, as @GtBFilms said, I didn't stand a chance with no power-ups. Even with 3 lives remaining... :(
my score is 71380 so far. only had a couple of goes. this game rules!
doesn't seem to save hi score in FBA for me... let's see if i can do something about that...

I've just realized that we can use the MAME ROW to enrich the mame2003 compatibility list spreadsheet.
I'm not sure if anyone can edit the spreadsheet and maybe I won't find time to keep it updated. But, if a kind guy wants to update the file, here is what I know since we started this all (I only tested on raspi2).
ROM name | raspi2 status ----------|--------------- phoenix | working nrallyx | working bosco | working kabukikl | working tdfever | working (but I don't know how to play it) lizwiz | working amspdwy | working, but needs to configure the dpad 4dwarrio | working spacduel | didn't test halleys | didn't test stratof | working
@meleu anyone can update the spreadsheet :) i don't even think you need a google account

@R1n0X In response to your score...
Maybe @dankcushions could implement some way to enable turbo.
I don't use it myself, but you can always add turbo to any controller with xboxdrv by adding
--autofire BUTTON=FREQUENCYto a standard configuration. For example:
You can also tell another button to act as a separate turbo option like you see in lr-fceumm with a

@meleu Done! lr-mame2003 compatibility list updated.
I usually update the comp lists whenever I try new games.

After a lot of attempts, I got to the to of the leader board at last (111,030).
I did actually get a score of 124,000 as well but my picade crashed back to the menu and didn't save the score (honest!)
Those third level snake things are sneaky.
Still a bit off that 131, 000 high score though!

The best I got was 131030 but didn't get a screen shot, so it doesn't count. Also, it seems that you can only have so many projectiles on screen at any one time, so if you are closer to something and they are hitting the object (and disappearing) your ship can fire faster. It means essentially flying closer to everything, but for big stuff like bosses it can be helpful if you memorize what they're going to do.
Ybutton is tired.

@obsidianspider that's an interesting observation. I'd noticed the same, on level 2 committing to going close to the large ship in an all-or-nothing attack seemed to get better results. Same on the level 1 boss, getting in close and hammering the fire button you can sometimes destroy it before it gets a chance to even fire that big ion cannon thing once.
I hadn't worked out the actual mechanics of why, but that makes sense.

@GtBFilms it's called projectile pooling when shooting at the bottom of the screen the bullets will exit off the screen past a hit box and be cleared. It's a trick to use less resources on objects speeding up the game... To test go to top of screen then start shooting your firing rate will go like a Gatling gun. I only know this as I made a shooter in unity3d
My Score: 149760 ( I will need a new forearm!!! )
