I thought I watched some inputs and there were no extras after 100k. Apparently I should have watched them closer. :oops:

It seems like there is extra men after 20k, 100k and 200k. Reaching 300k didn't give Dax or destructor any more men. If it stops at 200k there's still no problem. But I guess we will have to wait until someone reaches 400k and 500k before we can be sure. Or maybe 1 020 000, 1 100 00 and 1 200 000. :)

I get extra live after 400k.

Limit lives have no sense. Limit time have no sense. Better will be:
1-nb of last stage reached
2-score
It's my opinion.

I just played destructor's game back and noticed that everything looked was moving in slow motion. I tapped F11, but got the message that everything was running at 100% speed.

After that I played a few games with sound off and the game was running slower. Wolfmame still reports 100% speed, but the difference was significant. After turning sound back on the game returned to normal speed.

Is this just my computer or can anyone else confirm this strange phenomenon?

A worm that slows down games played with sound off? Made by the MAGCH (Militant Arcade Game Composers & Hackers), maybe? :D

Anyway I'm glad it only affects me. Guess I have to play with sound on.

Destructor's games played back nicely for me to, with or without sound. It was just the speed that was different.

It's strange. I played with sound off and on, and I don't see any changes. :?
I must record with sound off because I have only P I 200MHz now.
If I play without record I have 100% with sound on. But when I record with sound I can't play. :(

I don't like this idea, Ive had a recorings where after reaching a new level I haven't been on before like level 16, it took some time time, just over a minute because the level is much faster and track gets laid down more frequntly. It was hard to get the hang of it since it was the first time Id reached and didn't have a quick pattern memorized to complete it in under 1 minute.

Not really fair to someone who does at least 40 seconds or under on every stage and then disqualify them because they take over a minute on a later level theyve just reached for the first time.

just trying once now and then won't work.

By 3-4 attempts I mean immediately try again after it fails...after 3-4 more attempts it will get processed.

If you open the submit page up in it's own page instead of the frame BS after the submit fails you can hit back and just reselect the file and try submitting again...and again..and again.... until it finally shows up on the uploads page.

it has been this way for close to a week now.

Searches are the same way.[/quote]

For me, I can do any searches I want, but I've tried for over an hour to upload a single score [posted at the end for all to get credit for , or to laugh at] Level 9

yep..that's how I have been doing it. in it's own page versus frames.

...plus then in another window or tab you can have the uploads page shown...so after each attempt you can quickly switch to that other window..refresh the uploads to see if it actually got submitted at least....before trying again.

Tried submitting in its own frame for about 90 mins last night. No good. I haven't an idea.

i have a Q:
if there will be only inps without permanent or particular at level 1 and others what will be the scoring??? stages?? or total without leeching score??
i think it kina of important and as i think if we wuld declar that we are true players and we do no leeching the scoring via end score is better i think

I think stage is better in this game, it shows how your true mastery of the game. You can get to the same stage as someone and have more points because you lost your lifes in a stage where you get more points, wich is a lot more random way of showing your skill.
