Re: No Shot Available

Yeah, I recall Seymour has been a bit hard to get in contact with at times in the past...

Zwaxy = Chris Moore, maybe he could be found on social media or such?

Re: Must see recordings

For me it would have to be Gavin Ward's Marble Madness WR score. What he does with a trackball (or even harder, a mouse for that matter) is nothing less than incredible. Him moving that marble around the board is almost flawless. I would have crashed my marble 1,000 times if I zipped around the boa...

Re: No Shot Available

There is a related problem and I can't get a solution from Zwaxy or Chris G. Chris G? Btw, is everything ok with Chad? ... last time he posted here was in August 2015? Edit: Last active: Wed Feb 14, 2018 8:15 pm I had a discussion with him about some snapshots in 2009, he said that I don't have to ...

Re: The fall of the Gods

There's a bit more to the barrel analysis than that. Hi George, Probably yes, but this was all the info I had. Mr Copeland thought that his stats were proof which they are not... I haven't seen any other proof so far. What's suspicious is that compared to other players with very high barrel points,...

Re: The fall of the Gods

Thanks. Let's look at "Total Smashes" for all 12 players listed and assume it's normally distributed.... According to normal distribution the odds for single player to get 380 smashes (as Billy did) is roughly 1/12. So there's nothing unusual with Billy's amount of smashes which seems to be in quest...

Re: Archive these games -topic

There's some confusion here: so far we've talked about taisen mahjong aka player against CPU. solitaire mahjong is a completely different genre, and while I'm not a fan of them that doesn't mean they aren't worth to my eyes. Also they have like ... 1-5% of luck factor? Also I have no idea about the...

Re: Archive these games -topic

If it is true that tactics, strategies and thinking apply to all games, then they apply ALSO to video games. Isn't that what I just said. The idea is that all games include tactics but merely having tactics doesn't make a game a video game. As long as luck isn't the absolute factor, I don't see why...

Re: Archive these games -topic

mahjong is a completely different league than "cards" games. Not really, can be played with physical tiles/cards and luck is a factor, you can play strategically perfect and still not pass it because the wrong tile appears beneath... Sort of like Solitaire. PS: hand-eye coordination is one of the s...

Re: Archive these games -topic

We 're talking for deck cards. Meanwhile I saw that "Baby Pac-Man" was archived, while games like "Super Duper Casino (California V3.2)" remain in their position... Well yes, Baby Pac-Man is a Pinball Hybrid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEX7TqjW3nU You can trigger all the mechanical score parts...
