EAB/Lemon Super League 2014: Round 7 - Jumping Jack'Son

EAB/Lemon Super League 2014: Round 7 - Jumping Jack'Son

Starts: 00:01 May 25 Finishes: 23:59 June 14

Rules

Post a picture of your score here with the score written underneath. Enter as often as you like. Only scores achieved during the round's time frame count.

Play Game A, one player mode only. And only play with the WHD version or the ADF with the WHDLoad version on it as provided below due to scoring system differences.

No cheating of any kind (including score leeching) - this includes save states. No continues/passwords allowed. If you suspect anyone of cheating please let us know in private - anyone found guilty will be banned for the entire season.

In an exciting twist, the winner of this round gets to choose a year between 1987 and 1995 for Round 8 after the competition's break, when only games from the chosen year can be voted for. As long as that year isn't 1987, 1991, 1994 or 1995.

Remember, anyone can join in at any time. Have fun and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

- ADF (High-density ADF provided by Ze Emulatron, autoboots WHD version, remember to set HD floppy drive and A1200 quickstart in WinUAE)
- WHDLoad-installed

Extras

- Full rules and FAQ (incorporating the Hall of Fame)
- Lemon thread

I have knocked together a high density ADF containing the WHDLoad version of the game. Please make sure you play the WHD version only due to scoring system differences.

Could someone host this file somewhere please so it's easy to link to?

Dont know if you uploaded the wrong file, it is only a Double Density ADF, doesn't boot by itself and complains if you dont have WHDLOAD on your workbench disc.

Here is the Lotus2HD ADF modified to contain the Jumping Jackson files from Grahams ADF. I believe it works on Amiga 1200 Quickstart config with the floppy drive set to 3.5" HD.

It also needs to be unzipped to have the highscore appear in the top 1000, try to remember what your score is if it is less than 2000 so you dont have to look through 1000 highscores to find it. To quit the game on the HD ADF and save the high scores to disk press the Amiga Printscreen button, it is Numpad * in the default A1200 config in WinUAE.

Back in the day I used to load this just to hear the music
Also it looks like collecting the music notes unlocks access to secret levels. (You get the option to choose the level once you collect enough.)

Apologies! I did upload the wrong file. I've fixed it now but thanks for sorting one out in the meantime, I'll add a link in the first post.

You need to quit the game as usual with your favourite quitkey (F10 or numerical *) back to CLI to save the highscore to disk.

My bad, you can tell I am used to ALT + LAMIGA + RAMIGA resetting games, I dont have WHDLOAD yet as my A2000 only has a 50MB HDD and it is full. I have edited my post to say To quit the game on the HD ADF and save the high scores to disk press the Amiga Printscreen button, it is Numpad * in the default A1200 config in WinUAE.

Can you please post this on Lemon too?

7.874

Hints: Notes are for skipping levels. Skip A costs 5 notes, skip B 7 and skip C 9. Use a skip for really hard levels which you find tough to manage (for me, thats level 15 and 16).

Game restarts after level 16 with level 1, but this time with time limit.

Also, if you have full 3 lives and collect one more extra life you activate the score-doubler. All score is now added with a double value until you die.

Harry, I was going to ask this on Lemon but I may as well ask the master (there is always one, or as Highlander says: There can BE only one.)

When I hold down fire it drops a cassette on the floor. I start with three. What does this do? Is this a waypoint system or something? I think I'll read the manual before I try again.

They are used to stop some enemies from getting to you, some enemies cant get passed the tapes, they have to go around. You can also pick the tapes back up too.

One hint I forgot:

The drum always comes in the "column" where you stand when it appears, indicated by a flash and the drum sound. It appears preferably at the top of the playfield, so watch out when you are close to the top but havent reached it. It goes until the other end of the playfield, where it will vanish, except when you are at an end of the playfield, where it will turn and go back. When a drum rolls over another enemy, eg a bass, that one will be stunned for a short time. You have to be 2 fields away from the drum to be safe, one field might be survived with luck. Its better to not use random teleporters when a drum is around.

Look at the demo coming after a while, many things are explained there.

15.505

After quite some tries, i had an exceptional good run, looped the game and managed even to top my old highscore. Still made a mistake: When you crash into an enemy, the timer coming when looped will not stop or reset, but continue.

Edit: I dont remember level 6 as anything special, but the trick for level 7 is to make the bass move to the top of the starting field, then you can move to the bottom without having it on the heels.
