Reactor sound clip

Post by JoustGod » Fri Jun 27, 2003 7:58 pm

Rick:

To answer your question about the female voice at the beginning of the Reactor clip, this is what I've found. From what I understand, it was obtained from a site that had various arcade Real Audio themes. I'm not sure where that is located as I took this clip from this site: http://www.fortunecity.com/skyscraper/e ... actor.html

It sure sounds like it could be part of a prototype sound for the machine. If you look at the technical info for Reactor at that site, you'll see an interesting response from the guy who was responsible for Reactor's rockin' sound.

FYI, remove period from above URL for the reactor page.

Man, the background for that reactor page is the worse. I will have spots in front of me for hours now.

reactor is boring? I can think of tons more games that are far more boring.

100+k scores are good scores IMHO....so don't feel too bad there wuzel.


I have only played it in MAME a handful of times. I'll definitely have to try it more in the near future. it's definitely different than most other games around.

the eyes burning I can understand....still not sure how you see it as boring.

The early stages can be a little slow....but once you get to the vortex stages you are almost constantly moving.

the game would be a little more exciting and fun though if there was some stage completion bonus timer that ticks down as you complete the board. That would have you more actively moving around getting them all pummeled against a wall as quickly as possible in many cases.

...although that kind of time bonus would defeat the point of the bonus chambers.

I always felt the bonus chambers don't award a large enough bonus anyway....but then again I haven't played the game that much....I guess on later levels if you get one of those big globs in the bonus chamber you can get at least a few thousand out of it.

The bonus chambers are the most important part of the game for points. And if there was like a timer bonus, it might change the way I play the game based on how much of a bonus it would give. I, myself, I try to get as many decoys as I possibly can in the first few levels (I have had as many as 15 by the start of Level 5 while practicing). I do that by moving around in the first four levels knocking as many sets of rods in as I can. The vortex has a pattern (I think), and as time has progressed, it's given me less difficulty. My biggest problem is running into walls (stupidly). Like, I accidentally move my mouse between levels and boom, I hit a wall. Or on the invisible wall boards, I go in the bonus chamber and go too much to the left/right and run into the wall. Stupidity is my largest downfall as it stands.

Nah, that score is not my best. It's horrible, even.

Looking at Destructor's score, I assume he figured out what I figured out yesterday. :lol: (Yes that's the truth, not some BS trying to make me look good or something)
