Re: Battle Beyond The Stars the arcade game

I believe someone like Taito had an office here in Christchurch, NZ in the arcade 'hey-days', so it may well have been a one-off prototype created here and play tested here, before being sent anywhere else. Or maybe it was one of the other local arcade game manufacturers testing a prototype. Seems l...

Battle Beyond The Stars the arcade game

Does anyone else remember playing an arcade game called Battle Beyond the Stars? It was probably loosely based on the movie of the same name as it had a button for the Stellar Converter, as well as a mega-blaster button and a standard fire button. I remember playing it a few times, but I only ever s...

Resetting Marp Accounts

Is there anyone around who is able to reset the password for Marp accounts? Clearly my password isn't what I thought, and foolishly I had my browser auto-logging on and I no longer have the credentials in the browser and can't logon with what I expected the password to be. If there is anyone who can...

Stay safe everyone!!

Especially those of you in currently hard-hit areas of the world where Covid-19 is particularly prevalent at the moment and those of you where it is yet to become as wide-spread.

Cheers,

You'll find the answer by looking at the very first post in this topic - zlk edits that first post each year to update the bounties, rules, etc.

Re: Do not know where to post this Jcbritt and Jaydawg same person!

I know it's the same person because they showed me the scores on my discord .. I knew they had the other account. That's useful to know. Over to someone with suitable access to see if the two accounts can be safely combined. Should be able to tell if it's from the same IP Adresss . Unless they're p...

Perhaps lots of people are like me and are taking a break from their computers around Christmas time? in my case it's also summer time so there's better things to do than being inside on a computer!! It's not like anyone is paid to look at these forums, or perhaps those who read the post don't reall...

Re: How to download First Mame Olympics recorded games

The most likely version used for tournaments of that era was m35tg3.

ie: The 'TG' version of Mame which pre-dated WolfMame.

Unfortunately it still doesn't find the file when a URL is constructed using that version of Mame in the filename. :(

Such a sad few days here in Christchurch...

Work has had a very strange atmosphere all day today. It may be 3 days since the shocking event, but everyone seems to know someone who lost a family member, parent, child, close friend, previous work colleague, etc. :( :( :(

Re: Yolympics 2019

That might have put the brakes on my gaming. In the middle of an ok-ish game of Galaga and my control panel slipped partly off the desk, and when I pulled it back fully onto the desk I think it pulled a on the cable and then it stopped working. :-( Pulling the control panel apart now, but I think I ...

Re: Yolympics 2019

... hmm, seems like the CAG site is broken when using FireFox. I just tried with Chrome instead, and look at that there's a 'Submit Score' button on the lower left when viewing the details for a game.... kind of what I was expecting to see. Oh well, I'll be able to upload my crud when I get back hom...

Re: Yolympics 2019

Ok... call me stupid but I don't seem to have any 'submit score' type buttons or links when on the CAG site for the tournament...

How do I go about submitting some of the pathetic scores I've managed thus far on the games?

Re: Old ranking system

we can work only with the original games. The best is: We don´t have to full the site with a lot of inps. The difficulty with this idea is what happens when the 'original' version of a given game changes with new releases of Mame. Also, sometimes the 'original' versions had bugs which were fixed in...
