Re: 1942 extra life bug

I'm going to put this here for those not already familiar with this bug. (This is something Novice really should've done himself though, considering I'm quoting from him. :) ) Beware the bad English though: "add 1 ship" when "first time to <8th(10M) and 7th(1M) digits of score are ZERO. and 6th(100K...

Re: Allowing TG settings for MARP submissions in new TG era

Well if we're going to do that Cicca, then we need to define what the "historical TG" settings for each game would be first, if they're not already the same as MAME defaults. Are we going to use the lists linked to in earlier posts to define what those "historical settings" would be?

Re: PAC's toppyrap recording

I'm going to take a wild guess and assume an "infinite lives" cheat was applied at the point bmclean saw the number of lives left jump up to 9. (That's how using an infinite lives cheat would look in some games - counter maxes at 9 but the actual lives the player has would be "frozen" at a specific ...

Re: T14 - PAC has been disqualified

I also throw my vote to a lifetime ban. The recent shenanigans have shown him to be unrepentant, if nothing else.

Re: B. Rap Boys Special 1 credit clear replay

Congrats BBH!

Has there been any determination as to the root cause of the constant desyncing? From all I've seen, it's a total mystery as to the cause...

Re: T14 - PAC has been disqualified

He appears to be uploading old INPs. Some, at least, seem to push leeching to the limit. Why they weren't uploaded before is a mystery... Because most of them would be first placers on the leaderboard? In any case, dumping a ridiculous amount of high-ranking and probably old INPs on the staff at on...

Re: Scramble records

FTR, the special rules on the parent rom only cover playback issues with Win 98 and XP machines right now. None of the clones have special rules either. I would suggest a poll thread with options to put special rules to use either the 3+1 MAME default or 5+1 TG settings. (This ought to be applied to...

Re: Useless statistic

Just out of curiosity Barthax, what do you use to run the very old versions of MAME to verify those playbacks? Do they run natively in a modern version of Windows, or do you need something like DosBox for them? What about INPs recorded in an old Mac version of MAME?

Re: T14 - PAC has been disqualified

Hang on now, let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater here - not all of PAC's scores have been found to be illegit as of right now. Besides, Innuendo has something to gain by that particular score being disqualified: slyspy Leaderboard: 1st - PAC with 1,140,000 points 2nd - Innuendo with 1,09...

Special rules for Violent Storm?

Seeing Phil's quest to get a recording from Violent Storm and its clones that doesn't desync at some point (and the problems that occurred during T14), I'm wondering if it would help for any future recording to require no sound and/or frameskip 0 to be accepted. Any opinions on this?

Re: T14 - PAC has been disqualified

I dont know how can I cheat , I play with a keyboard in a Laptop, I cant cheat anyway!!!!!!! If you think that I cheat is only your opinion. I do not want to argue, I have a clear conscience and that's what matters to me. That argument gets even more ridiculous considering saulonpb (a known autofir...
