Log entries

  • Played a game on a Missile Command / Centipede arcade machine at the Google GDC Party. The trackball takes some getting used to, it would probably be easier for me to play with a mouse.

  • Got the score 9620 in MAME. Definitely easier with a mouse.

  • Using the new company USB trackball, I played some Missile Command. Setting the input sensitivity in MAME low enough is key, so fast movements don't 'roll over'. Sensitivity around 20 seems to work OK.

  • Got the score 17795. The Finnish Museum of Games arcade had a Missile Command machine. I love slapping the giant trackball around to try to save the world from ICBMs.
