Re: 3rd MAME Olympiad - Time to start setup

I apologize, but due to virtually zero interest (save one person, Saludos), and also due to my impending retirement from all emulation/high score activities (don't worry - this wasn't a reason - I just want to move on), the Olympiad is hereby cancelled.

3rd MAME Olympiad - Time to start setup

Hey folks, It's time for me to start setting up the games of the 3rd MAME Olympiad. This Olympiad hasn't been around since 2007, and that was more of a team competition. We're going back to the "represent your country" model. With that in mind... here are the rules. (subject to change until a reason...

HARP Championships

Hey folks, I'm running a championship over at my site, the Home Action Replay Page(HARP), which will decide who is the best on the console side of things. Basically, you would try to survive some particular four-person double-elimination bracket (so you're guaranteed at least two rounds), then you w...

Re: T11 begins

Actually... now that I'm thinking about it... I COULD add a competition on HARP... I'd have to program a leaderboard though... which shouldn't be too hard. Of course, the disadvantage would be that everybody who wanted to participate in the tournament would have to sign up at HARP, so far more peopl...

Re: T11 begins

3. Is there a leaderboard available to view? Not at this stage, but I've poked Zwaxy about setting up the MARP database properly for T11. When (if) that happens, we should then have a usable leaderboard for T11. This is one of those moments where I wish I could do something to help... but for multi...

Re: T11 begins

OK - I thought that I could upload "new games", aka *t11s, to the database, but apparently I cannot. :( We'll have to rely on Pat on this one. But here's the file so the workload is substantially reduced: *t11-raiden "Tournament XI - Raiden" *t11-alibaba "Tournament XI - Ali Baba and 40 Thieves" *t1...

Re: T11 begins

Barry and Potante - both Pat and I can quickly add *t11- games(*ed to prevent leaderboard scoring) if you think I should do so.

Confirmation rights

Hey folks... mainly the editors... how come Rax still doesn't have confirmation rights, even though he requested this several weeks ago? Can we have a resolution on this soon?

Thanks.

Re: Games of T11

I hate to go way back in the past... but... way back in the past... January 2004 to be precise, we played Contra as a test round in the first MARP time trials. Nobody complained about Contra crashing then. They used WolfMAME 78, which was the once accepted version to use... uh... way back in the pas...

Re: Games of T11

Peeking at the spanish forum's T11 topic, I think it was el_fumador who had a point. (now I did use Google translator, so if I misunderstood the conversation... my bad) With each tournament in the past, each game had a judge assigned to that game so the tourney coordinator's job was made a little bi...

I used to be an editor here... but I retired from that position many years ago.

But... if you want confirmation rights on HARP... I'm your man! :)

Re: Importance of MARP Olympics and other MARP Championships

Well, I'm going to list my full plans for the Olympiad sometime in July... but we're going back to the roots of the first MAME Olympiad and everybody just plays for their country. Might do something if there's only one person in a country and I see something where they could meld together, or we can...
