Yeah, manual locking is vital for a good enough time for GM--and the faster you can push it the better. You can hit 999, though, which is a major step in the right direction. Keep focusing on clearing tetrises and keep pushing the speed.

Also, Amnesia, I'm pretty sure the 15 minute limit only started in TGM2. Anyone else can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong though.

If the 15 minutes limit existed, the game should have stopped at 15:00:00.

TGM has no hard limits, but there is a point at which it turns the game speed up a lot if I remember correctly (effectively, it tries to kill-screen you).

It definitely exists in the later games, I don't remember if it is in TGM1.

4. Kitaru

I don't think TGM1 has it. TGM2 and 3 jump the speed up to a much later section to keep you from stalling indefinitely.

5. cyberguile

It doesn't exist in tgm1 since 777 did a 999 in 45 minutes

(777 did a 999, hihi !)

I started manual locking today and it almost blows my mind for now.
I can survive until level 1xx max and the level 100 times suggest that I can achieve about 1:20 per 100 levels...still A LOT of improvement needed.
I think have to start turning off the TV and be focused whilst playing

@nico
stacking is quite good when playing sub 500 and g20 without locking (not using a lot of "special" moves though). G20 with locking -> le stacking est horrible.

AAK

Before getting GM, I first cleared the game without manlocking at all, and I was like : "well, it's just a matter of time now, let's get used with speed and it shouldn't take too much time".

I was totally wrong.

It took me 3 months to get used with it and get the GM grade, even though I still feel difficult the sub-20G section (maybe more than the 20G). But, as I was told when facing the same problem than you, once you got used to it, it becomes a second nature and you cannot play without manlocking anymore . Just keep on training and try to keep concentrated all the game long.

What should have been a fast ending wasn't... otherwise I'd be looking at this a lot better.

Missed the S4 (lvl.515) but new PB:

999 @ 12:56:33 (S9)

10. nicofromtokyo

Got it !

GM @ 13:14:23

Slower than the normal mode, but u no wut ? I don't care

I hope someone will update all the leader boards soon, I did several performances I'd like to see registered. Thanks !

11. AmnesiaPiece of Cake

I have requested hundred times to have the control on some leaderboards where the holders did not come back for ages, or come back 2 times per year...

12. bigwig

Woooooo! Now will someone please explain to me why I've only gotten to 830 in master mode once?

Also, thank you Mihara for putting the level stop at 998 because if it had been at 999 there would have been a lot of broken furniture to clean up.
