WOW!!! 12.5 hours of solid game playing. I assume you can't eat or drink during that time... correct? Even with an infinate number of lives I don't think I could hold out that long.

Congrats... when I first read the score Kevin submitted I read it as 8.6 million and thought you'd just been trumped by your own son. Looking closer I see he's got a ways to go yet but I'd watch your back. You have to be one very proud dad. So congrats all around.

Keep it up,

Congratulations... that's quite the feat. Haven't made it past the 6th level myself, of course it's been years since I played Tron on an arcade machine.

Holy mackerel!

How you did that I'll never know. I can barely pass the third level, never mind play for 12 plus hours!

Oh, I have a question for you. Have you happened to notice if the programming language names restart, or at some point do you play the same language over and over?

Thanks everyone.

Under Twin Galaxies rules, you are allowed a 5 minute break for every hour of gameplay.

So, for every million points scored (first 4 only) I would take a break in the recognizers level. The video that I posted showed how I would get to the safe spot so I could either rest of finish the level.

I would have a water bottle for quick drinks as the timer counted down before the next level started.

I would eat before an attempt, rest and then start the game. I would try not to eat until the attempt was over to keep from having any distractions.

After the first 4 million, there are no longer any places to take a break, so you have to stay on the machine until you lose or give up.

Thanks.

The level names only show up once each. When you reach the user level, all levels show up as user level.

Since there are 30 different combinations of levels with the cones and grid bugs repeating every 6 levels and the cycles and tanks repeating every 5 levels, you really have to keep track of what level you are on in order to help avoid mistakes like going the wrong way in the cones or rotating the spinner on the grid bug level where you need to shoot from the starting position.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

David,

As we were working on Tron we often pondered the future of gaming as we watched the cast and crew madly playing the Arcade games we had on the set. We wondered just how far games would evolve in the future and figured it would be some mind bending exponential equation. When the Tron game finally came out and I played it and watched my son play it for hours, I learned just how immersive a good game could be. That being said.... If you would have told me that twenty-five years later a guy named Cruz would run up a score of 6.8 million on that same game....I would have called in the straight jacket squad right then and there and have you committed. Well, Excuse me, I'm expected back on planet Earth.... 6.8 million? Are you out of your _ _ _ _ _ _ _ mind? Congratulations.

Richard Taylor

PS: Do you have a day job?

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the kind words.

I saw the movie, played the game and decided I wanted to work in computers. I was truly inspired by Tron.

I never would have imagined that 6.8 million was possible.
I knew that 4 million was since I accomplished that 23 years ago. But, with only 4 lives and that the slightest mistake could mean disaster, I had my sights set on trying to get 5 million. (Enough to break the record)

As far as the day job, I could always use something better.
But, if you mean do I have time for a day job, I really didn't put a lot of time into trying to get good enough for my record run. Early on, I had trouble trying to remember how to play, but as soon as it clicked, I didn't need very many games to start scoring big. I picked a day three weeks earlier that I would make my record attempt on.
I played one quick game to warm up and then played the record game. I did not play at all the prior three weeks.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineon line abortion pill http://blog.inkstersgive.com/page/misoprostol-dose-abortion.aspx medical abortion pill online

Wow!

Well done, dctron!

You know, back in the day, when I used to play TRON in the arcade, I could never get passed the third level. I just didn't have enough quarters or tokens to get that good at it. On an emulator years later, even after intense playing (well, intense for me), I could never get passed the 4th level. I don't remember my scores, but I can't imagine it would be all that impressive even completing level 5.

I'm not sure how you did it. The time involved in getting such a high score alone would have worn me out and my hands and fingers would no doubt be very numb.

6,768,288 points in the original world of TRON... great work, program!

Congratulations, David! Amazing how you totally shattered the previous record!

Man, I can't even begin to imagine what a marathon session it must have been to rack up that kind of score. Must have been difficult to keep playing that long without making any serious mistakes. But you managed it.

6.8 million on the TRON Arcade game! You are the master, Dave! You have done even better than Flynn himself. Should we expect 10 million from you next?
