input must be uploaded in a maximum of 24 hours after recording (and before 0:00GMT of the last day)

1- How is considerated this WCC rule?
2- It is needed, just now exist the bonus points each 2 days?
3- How is mensured these 24 hours? And if in my PC the current/local time is different than the GMT0 time, how is consideratd it?
4- How is possible to see these statistics recorded on INP, like recording date/time, %speed, average % speed, play time of the input, etc (using WolfMAME)???

Use commandline version wolmame for playback not 32 version. After playback inp you will see averge speed, on start playback you will se record time and other things.

Use the commandline exe (mamepXX.exe) from a command prompt (DOS prompt under Win9x/Me). Various bits of info are output to the console (easier to code, rather than calling Windows API functions)

If you don't want to bother with this rule, just upload your inputs just after you make it ; I know you can upload more than 24 hours after recording if you live GMT+something, but anybody also can change date of his cpu ; more than a rule it's an ethic that is required there

Thank you for the technical info Mahlemiut, I will try it.

Phil, in the most part, I am not able to upload my INP just after I played it. I am not using ADSL and not connected at Internet the entire time. In the most part I play it at home, and when I send the INP I am at work. Not all times, but in the most part of the time I do it. Only for your information.

Other thing...
Today I watched the bbh_ecofghtr_773200_tgmame67 record, and it dsync at the 2nd stage here. And guin_ecofghtr_842600_tgmame67 record playbacks ok, but what is possible to do if I suspect the player used some autofire type? It is perceived at the parts when the "black ball shot" is used, including at the 4th boss. When playbacked to the confirmation, the confirmator just verified the autofire uses possibility? Like, use anything to calculate/mensurate the average of the buttons pressed by seconds, or the constancy of the shots? Please can be explicated it in details?

Just let any editor know which recording you suspect, and it will be checked.

I think there no autofire. He has max power and black ball. When you have max power you can shot fast, very fast. Black ball is the best weapon. 8)

1CC ALL, I'll submit a replay after I get back from vacation since it's pointless for me to join the WCC now in the 8th week. Fun game, not that difficult though. :/ Seems that some leeching or something can be done since the gamest record is 2,571,400.

Argh! The 2nd bonus point is mine this week.
To whon never had won no one bonus point before, it is being good :)
But is very odd the low number of submission still now... only me and Barry. :roll:

By the way Barry... playing in the old TGMAME068, at the finish of the replay the fps average appear... the rest I didnt succeeded. I saw the -showuseage and no one command concerning it was found. Please, can somebody explain? (PS.: I know that exists mame32p89.exe and mamep89.exe. And is ok to run the WolfMAME using the prompt, but the wished statistics... nothing!) Some help?

Other question: the command -iv (-inputview) is allowed since which version?
