Scores - MAME:
2879100 ......... on 2009-06-30
 From Schmid Blog: DonPachi is one of my favourite games right now.
 2014-07-09: Found an old MAME save state on my old Dell Inspiron 510m laptop.
 Got the score 2879100 in MAME.
 I played a pretty good game of DonPachi at our new MAME cabinet at work, reached stage 3 on one credit.
 Hmm... Was this the game that unironically coined the phrase 'prosecuted to the full extent of the jam'? Amazing, I never realized. I guess that the letters of 'jam' read upside down, look like 'law'.
 This was the last shooter I streamed tonight, and when compared to the older games, this just controls like a dream. 10 years of shooters really improved upon the genre conventions.
