Transition: using tetris with 129 lines

Meh... only 2k more than the previous pb...
One Tetris from glory!
I have come so far that I could cry.
Uploading to Twitch and highlighting. Video available tomorrow afternoon!
I have the video segment uploaded to my Twitch account. If someone could let me know how to link the video to the forum, I'll get it posted up.
I guess just remove the space and fast forward to 23:55
Name: Emmanuel Solera
Score: 563457 (Level 9 Start, 19 End, 198 Lines)
Hardware: Emulator (Nestopia) with Hyperkin controller
563k at the transition is super solid score!
Little bit of 19 practice and 600k+ is right there for you.
Thank you Raul1138 !
Just a little bit of practice and you'll become a maxouter!
@Emmanuel Solera: how do you experience using Hyperkin? Is his D-Pad precise, or does pressing the down arrow work diagonally (down and side)?
Some time ago I was thinking about buying it, but on YouTube I found videos from unboxing and on them the owners showed that it has an imprecise D-Pad. It was almost impossible to squat in Ninja Gaiden, which is normally possible by pressing down arrow.
That's why I finally bought Data Frog, because I didn't have such problems with it, and besides it was much cheaper, so I could buy more controllers for the price of one Hyperkin.
Hey furious programming ! The D-Pad seems to me quite precise but it is hard to press it ; it is a little exhausting for the hand. Maybe I should try others controllers to compare and improve my game. Or I should get a real console and a CRT TV...
New final score PB, earliest max PB, and transition score PB, plus my first ever back to back!
Wow. Great to see all these long time tetrisconcepters hitting maxouts and high pbs. Congrats Eris, FP, Raul and Josh!
@Adonis Mouse Hey, thank you! Its been a long time coming!
@Adonis Mouse: I have nowhere to go, so I'm sitting here. At least for now.
After a 4 months break I got back into it a week ago. Eventually got a few 150k+ lv19 starts and now a new PB + line-record (going to 193 while continuing to score). I did play pretty safe after transition and eventually messed up my board with a short z-burst and an unnecessary misdrop.
In the end it's only a 16000 improvement, but hey. You take what you can get. And sorry for the pause inbetween. I changed my playlist. If it invalidates the score, np.
Transition Score: 602329
Final Score: 740047
Also generally getting a lot better to adjust my risk-taking as well as dealing with the transition pace-change. At this point I can do relative consistent 500k+ transitions.
max out at 184 lines ish. Maybe 184.58?
This leaderboard is only for earliest maxouts right? I maxed on 26 the other day, but I'm not sure how to calculate the exact fraction of a line clear
