if i play conservatively (slow) at first, i can extend the game for awhile, until about 100k, but this is a rather painstaking, and time consuming way to play..however, it usually ends up deteroriating as the spider speeds up, and the fleas keep falling. ..but if i play fast (let the fleas come out...

I can't seem to upload my file either, so here's a link. I watched your 199K game...hopefully watching this will give you some more ideas. Recorded on DOS MAME 0.36.

Thanks for the intro, Tommi. I actually just joined this board this afternoon. I haven't played much Centipede on MAME yet since I have the real thing at home anyways.
