Wow, that first tie is a bit of a corker. Capehorn is, of course, the defending Knockout champion and has a brilliant record in this competition in recent years - but being unseeded in this draw has proven to be a headache. It's first versus third in terms of the final placings in the League round earlier this year but with quite a big gap in terms of score.

Mind you, Lines vs Joni is second versus fourth in that regard so that's certainly not a lightweight battle either.

Screwed up but the score is better than it would have been if I had finished the game without losing a life...

Lines vs Joni surely will be interesting.

Took a while submit something, but it's obviously a busy week (merry xmas to all )
I was reminded of the flickering sprites & slowdown on whd version.. found this out the hard way
Easiest solution is to just disable cycle exact, no need for jit etc.

Well this is embarrassing...

I can't really complain about getting drawn against John4p. I had improved my score a little bit on Supercars but it was such a small improvement and I was a bit frustrated about how I managed to lose on the final race (I started the last lap in 2nd and finished a pixel behind the car in 3rd) and I must have forgotten to post it. Only a small improvement, but it would have been enough to keep me top of the group and get me a much better draw.

So on to Apidya, and I guess I should be thankful to John4p for posting a beatable score when he probably easily could have got 250,000+. John's score was interesting because it is almost exactly the same as the best score I've ever got on Apidya which made me think I could just about do it. If I could just get past level 4-2 then the milking possibilities were there to get me over 200,000 points. But the best score I ever got was after 5 weeks of straight play and I only had a few hours today to brush up and try to match it.

I've had loads of plays but kept failing at different parts of 4-1, and once a single life goes, you have no chance.

I got something like 110,000 but didn't take a screenshot as it wasn't enough.

Good luck in the next round John.

And it's all over.

Well done to the four winners. Special mention to jPV who won his tie today by a mere 255 points. That is remarkably tight.

Pleasingly we've got a 50/50 split in terms of EAB and Lemon players for the semi-finals. Draw coming up...

Thanks m8!

It was still bad luck for you with the draw. Now with LinesMachine I got the worst possible draw for Pac-Mania.

Hope you'll participate a bit more in the league again.
