Got level 12 a total of 9/10 times
Got level 13 a total of 3/10 times (Got the first 3 and got tired apparently lol)

If that makes me a 13, that's interesting. I've out-tapped SirTed about 50-50 in games, but he's a 14. I can't remember the last time I out-tapped Peters (he always seems to beat me) but he's also a 13. Curious.

I agree in some tpc games i also beat Sirted 50-50 but I cant get 14 no way. maybe he has gotten faster since then though. When i started playing i thought clark was so fast but then i switched from thumb to index finger and recently i switched from index finger to middle finger.

I can beat you viking cause I can get 13 100% of ties but i can't get 14 at all. I had gotten 14 a couple times months ago but i must be off as i cant get 14 at all now.

So if your Insinuating I never had and never will turbo.

15 pretty much every time - 16 can usually get 1st try after that 1 out of 4 - hand gets tired at that high level

Is it true that if raise the HP of the RB to 13 on 16 rom that it will be equal to 17 etc all the way up to 100hp would in theory be rom 31?

I sucked until recently. Was working on the new method a lot - especially at hotel in Madison & only had hard time controlling player while tapping.

After close to a month working on it got comfortable grip on controller so can move guy on offense/defense too.

Had Pete Dorsey watch me in person today beat 16.

Tapping while not having to use the controller wasn't hard to learn the fast method but learning to hold controller so can be practical during a game was the tricky part.

It's no secret (everyone in my hotel- Derek Ruble, Degeorge, Ryan Stewart plus couple others stopped by) all saw me playing Track and Field which is all about tapping A button & not much use of controller. That's where learned the new method.

Not saying anyone will accuse me of using a turbo controller but considering how bad I sucked at tapping (10 - 11 if really got lucky before) there's obv going to be some suspicion.

1st I run a tournament in CT every 1st saturday in December - this year will be CT Tecmo IX & there's about a dozen online guys there so using turbo now online then not be able to tap in Dec at my tournament would be pretty bad.

Next tournament going to is the Buffalo NY one next month that Louis Buennegal (Mort & DT run it w him I think?) - but to use turbo now & go to live tourney in a month would also be a dumb idea on my part.

Finally it's a 20+ year old Nintendo game - using a turbo controller to get an edge ?? Really if someone is doing this they need to look long in the mirror & ask what's really going on w their life- is there nothing else going on positive that would lie & cheat other Tecmo ppl "Kinsmen" ?

I'm pretty excited I can tap now, it's been a 9 year online career w only a handful of grapples won- finally I'm on the other side of it.

Thanks ARNC

Ya not doubting you at all, i figured you figured out a way to switch it. I have found more and more guys doing that. SO are you using index, middle finger or the thumb thing like chet does? or something else i dont know about? Your going to be a monster now!

Yeah JP - last thing I was doing was putting that out there as if directed towards you in any way. Just figured if put that out there I won't have to every game for next 2 months have to write it in the chat. Haha

Middle finger is where it's at.
