Angry Help beating Canary Mary

Hi!

I just want to know how to beat Canary Mary in Cloud Cuckooland.
She is a cheater.... or my fingers are too slow... I donīt know...
I heard that the easiest way to beat her is using a turbo controller... but that was in the N64... what about the live arcade version??
I just want some walkthought, method,
suggestion or anything usefull to beat this stupid bird!!!

Any help?? Thanks a lot for your time.

It's actually possible to beat her as I thought it was impossible in the N64 version as well. Just mash X for all it's worth.

Yes, it is possible to beat her. My dad used to play drums, so he's really good at tapping buttons. Whenever there is such a moment in a game I just ask him to do it. When I first tried to beat her I tried again and again until I asked my sister to try, since she's a little better then me. She ended up exhausted and second place.
I cursed Canary Mary and continued.
Later that afternoon my dad came home from work. My fingers were dying at that point, so dad was definitly the last resort. I gave him the controller and told him to tap A for all it's worth. He defeated her on the first try and then asked if that was all.
Poor me.

But enough about that.

I couldn't even beat her the second time in Glitter Gultch The 360 controller buttons are horrible for pressing repeatedly. The technique I used on Nintendo controllers simply doesn't work

I hooked up my rock band drum kit, and it was very easy, just beat it at a steady pace. I also heard that getting a spoon and rubbing it over the button works wonders.

Use the pause button. Dear god use it. I found that one helpful tip is that after a little hard mashing, pause the game and get your stamina back and then carry on. I had to pause 4 times during the race so i could rest my thumb.

As for button mashing, i use my thumb. What i do is press the controller against my right palm so the control doesn't move about, cramp up my right thumb (it's uncomfortable but works) and then just jab the X as fast as possible.

I was knackered at the end of it but pausing at various intervals helped. Also i found standing up more helpful although i think i ended up standing up anyway due to concentration i was at...

Use a drum set if you have one, that's how I did it.

Copy and pasted from another thread I posted on about the same subject:

Her AI is programmed to travel faster the faster you mash the button so mashing it fast from the beginning will make it harder for you. The best strategy is to start slowly, not actually slow just mash the button without straining yourself, then go faster as you near the end. Don't be afraid if you're behind her for most of the time just try not to fall too far back and don't go all out until you're near the end. It should take some time to find out when to speed up but the race is not too long so it should only take a few tries. Hope this helps and good luck.
