Btw, should not Bosconian be 5 ship only? Based on the high scores on marp, It seems people can marathon that game in a similar fashion as with Robotron :)

Fine, wolf.... :D
WOW....draft is done...I'm in the "True Champions" team....and actually there are real true champions there (BBH, Barra, wolfman24....just to name those I know... ;-)

I would have personally preferred a larger number of teams (90 players -> 9 teams).....IMHO it could have been more challenging....but anyway we'll surely have a sleepless month.... :mrgreen:

PS: about the rules.....has spang to be played in panic mode...?! I guess so....but it's not specified anywhere....

I also have a question about Rodland. The dip settings say default episode of 1. Is episode 2 allowed? It's accessed via a code after inserting a coin (insert coin, down, down, down, start). The levels/enemies/bosses are completely different and the scoring is potentially different as well. I've also heard of a bug in episode 2 that allows scores of 20M+ (see MARP recordings here by Novice) but the recording is on a very old version of MAME. Hopefully someone who knows the game better can chime in here as I've only started playing it this week in anticipation of Yolympics.

Looks like the rule decision on Rodland will be that no Special Code is allowed when starting.

Make sure to double check all settings/rules at the start of the play on Jan 26th to ensure you are using the correct settings as on a few games settings/rules are still being finalized as a result of things like your question above.

Shoutbox support for Black Tiger speedrun is real but like a candle in the wind. So seriously, can we consider it? No one wants to leech.

For claiming a score, is it enough uploading on Marp ?
