Re: Archive these games -topic

Forgot to mention: normally the game upsides down with the score updated. Sometimes that score isn't even displayed, you get a black screen when TKO the opponent. There also a possibility that the score gets corrupted in stack and gives stupid high puntos. It's not something MARP should care about i...

Re: Toki poll - Second try.

I don't think this is the correct way to nix good plays of this. First place on this currently has 886k puntos, in a game where a random 1cc is ~250k. There are other metrics (lives, coins, remaining time in a single stage) that could be used instead. Of course it must be given credit to people that...

Just realized that several jongs uses a template snapshot:

Can work out a script to detect all of those without much hassle.

Re: Gals Panic / Fantasia etc

I've also been thinking about dividing your score by the number of times you complete a given stage with penalty screen, i.e. score / (penalties_completed + 1) That's more relaxing than just banning screen switches altogheter (things can go very hairy especially for the Korean ripoffs). And, since T...

Re: Gals Panic / Fantasia etc

It's quite a despicable technique, and yes it is known (basically every single inp from TK on this genre sports this)

The problem here is how exactly to ban this?

Arkanoid Returns - extra stages

Insert coin, press button 1 3 times, and button 2 once, then press start If done correctly a jingle plays and it grants the player the possibility to play stages 51-100, possibly even harder and includes Doh at last stage. I believe all MARP inps are with normal 1-50 stages, since under normal circ...

Needs archiving, not random (and actually a stealth gambling game too)
