  3. 500

    No manual locking because I just wanted to get at least a 500 first.

    Under "game information" I am getting 60Hz, so it seems I am playing at a slightly slower than the actual game speed (and don't have the right emu version etc.). I might try to improve the time further, so it would be a good idea to get the right version (I am not sure which versions play at the right frequency).

    Also, what are the conditions for M? Is it just time constraint or there are some other conditions too?

  8. Whoopsie I forgot to post my 5:14 here. Might as well post my 5:13:13

  9. Broke my record. I think my stacking is good enough at this point that for the most part if I don't misdrop (which killed me too early here) I think I might be GM material at this point :)
    Took more than a year to beat my previous 671.

    So happy I found this thread. I was really happy when I managed this run last week but I had no idea it actually had a place on a leaderboard. Big motivation to keep trying to reach 500!

  13. the discord server linked on is where most of the people from this site have ended up, as much as i hate forums slowly dying out in favor of big tech-owned social media platforms

    you can definitely hit 500/m if you keep practicing - it might sound infeasible at your current skill level but i would practice manually dropping pieces in the 300s and 400s in a clone (or you can back up your nvram if you're using mame and use cheats/tap's built-in debug mode) and simply trying to play faster instead of autolocking. it takes a while and i still have a hard time consistently reaching 500, but i hit m every single time i do and i play much faster now... although i do autolock from 500 onwards

  17. Hello everyone!

    I recently came back to the game after a few years hiatus following getting my first death M.

    Took me a few months to get back to where I was before and I'm now happily better than I was at my peak, getting Ms every few days now :)


    I'm using the 61hz build.

  18. Surprise 838 out of nowhere. I actually never thought I'd get to 999 but now it totally seems doable.
