Pattern Developments
« Reply #15 on: April 19, 2020, 10:08:52 pm »
5+ million coming up and some dirt digging fun.  Nice development of patterns.

Thanks. After all these years I was surprised to discover all these 10k 1st rock drop patterns for the "Double Frygar" boards (round 35-135+). I didn't think you could make going to the right work for the Round 33+ boards either but here we are thanks to all this unexpected/unfortunate free time

I suppose I should start playing actual games out and put them to good use. I encourage others to do the same ;)

Dig Dug - Round 138+ Fruit + Dirt Pattern Rev 2
« Reply #17 on: April 30, 2020, 09:04:57 am »
The rev 2 romset does not have the slow down bug seen in Rev 1. It also changes the difficulty up for Round 138+ in a way that breaks down the usual "notch" pattern we have been using for years.

This is the best way I have found to manage these rounds up to the kill screen so far on this romset. You need to make perfect turns at the start with no delays or monsters will break off and follow you up the first vertical shaft you dig after the first rock drop.

If you don't want to dig the extra dirt you can just grab the fruit and go for the other highest rock on the far left side of the screen for the last two monsters.

Updated Dig Dug Patterns - Round 1-11 All Fruit
« Reply #18 on: February 28, 2021, 10:06:40 pm »
I got a wee bit sidetracked by I, Robot...but now I'm back in the dirt again with some updated all fruit patterns for Rounds 1-31.

I optimized these patterns for better consistency and speed.. Recorded with Rev 2 romset (digdug) using MAME .220 but they should work on any Atari, Namco roms with the dips set to : Medium difficulty, 3 lives to start and extras at 10k, 40k and every 40k.

Rounds 1-11

No major changes to these rounds but may as well have it in order here so they are easy to find.
