Game List
7 Games from each range of dates for a total of 28 games

Adjudication – We understand different people have access to different equipment - both for broadcast/recording and gameplay (e.g arcade/MAME cabinets). With that in mind - and a desire to be as inclusive as possible since this is just for fun - the official policy will be "make your best effort to provide evidence." While video and/or INP is still the best form of evidence, we will also accept screenshots, photographs, and in-person verification as evidence for arcade cabinets and other situations (e.g. batteries fail, memory cards fill up) where a more complete form of evidence is not available or easily accessible. Every score is subject to challenge / review, regardless of what forms of evidence is supplied. Therefore, it is in every player's best interest to provide as much evidence as possible.

Other Rules
Overall Top 5 scores require an inp, video or stream
-The score you claim must be done on the first credit of your inp recording. Failure to do so will result in your score being changed to what it was for the first credit.
-To encourage good sportsmanship, no recording can be uploaded 24 hours after you recorded it. If these periods are violated, then that person's score for that game will be changed to zero.
-No Autofire
No Pausing

If using an inp file can use one of the following: latest WolfMAME, WolfMAME .106, or RetroUprising
All scores require at least a screenshot

Scoring

will be Top 5 from each team per game will score points for their team

Bosconian - Bonus Fighter: 10K, 50K, Every 50K

Why isn't this set to 20k/70k/70k, like it is in the latest versions of MAME? The setting was changed in MAME at some point because 10k/50k/50k isn't the correct default setting.

hey sikraiken
we took the dips from retrouprising that runs mame .135 so people that can't get mame to run properly can play there instead, and not having to worry about roms or learn how to record inps.
