Current Game Nominations (check this before nominating games!)
Omega Fighter Special is broken in 0.183 gameplay-wise, basically several smaller enemies won't shoot bullets.

Time for game nominations has been extended by a week. Hopefully this will give us more nominations (and give me more time to check for compatibility issues with WolfMAME 0.183). Keep spreading the word!

Game nominations will only be accepted for a few more days, so get them in ASAP! And please let me know if you see any problem games on the nomination list; I may not be able to go through the entire list before voting opens!

Don't think World Series 99 can be chosen since it's a baseball game for Naomi.
And it's marked not working for a good number of reasons (namely crashes in attract, slowpoke, untested gameplay).

A few notes and answers to questions I've already seen:

First: PANG PANG CAR HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE VOTING LIST. For lewdness. Those who voted for it please submit new votes.

1) Voting is open until the player draft starts, which right now is January 27th-ish. We are still working to schedule a time that works for everyone involved in the draft.
2) You can re-vote. Just submit a new, full vote and I'll delete the old one. Please try to keep this to a minimum though.
3) Please only vote for 3 games per time period.
4) Please be registered before you vote. If I don't recognize you or you're not on the list, I will eventually delete your vote.
5) In the case of tied votes I will choose the game that is the more unique of the tied votes and/or hasn't been in a tournament before.
6) If we end up with too many similar games (Bubble Bobble, Raiden, etc.) I will replace one with the next highest vote.

3) Game voting will end when the player draft starts. Please get your votes/re-votes in ASAP.

4) Please use the time between now and the start of the tournament to familiarize yourself with WolfMAME 0.183, the Yolympics Discord server, and even your potential captains and games.
