How to download First Mame Olympics recorded games

Post by francoisadt1 » Sat Jan 27, 2018 3:30 pm

Hi Mamers

I have seen the list of games played for "First Mame Olympics" (FMO) http://replay.marpirc.net/olympiad/
I also have checked the log confirmation list that recorded games for FMO were prefixed with an "o1-" in front of each game.

To download an uploaded zip file from "First Mame Olympics" I need to know the MAME version used for that tournament to reconstruct the possible zip file name. Nowhere the version of MAME or Wolfmame or TGMAME version used is listed.

Please post the version used for that tournament and construct the link to the three games listed below.

Example Results:
Ms. Pac-Man (mspacman)
Zylquin Canada 434,900 GOLD JOYSTICK
PacFan United States 304,620 SILVER JOYSTICK

Amidar (amidar)
Notman United States 1,556,690 GOLD JOYSTICK

Example from logfile:
Sat Dec 1 15:58:00 2001 : gameboy9 (plf) confirmed the o1-mspacman score of 434900 by Zylquin (zy)
Sat Dec 1 15:58:05 2001 : gameboy9 (plf) confirmed the o1-mspacman score of 304620 by PacFan (rpd)

Logical constructs per file:
user name + "_" + "game upload name" + "_" + "score" + "_" + "mame version used" + ".zip"

Proposed links:
http://replay.marpirc.net/inp/zy_o1-msp ... m35b13.zip
http://replay.marpirc.net/inp/sh_amidar ... m35b13.zip

This proposed link does not work.

Please assist reconstruct the link for the three games listed above.

Regards
Francois du Toit

I tried filling in quite a few MAME version names that were in use in December 2001 and nothing worked.

Either we're having really bad luck, or the files just aren't there anymore.

The most likely version used for tournaments of that era was m35tg3.

ie: The 'TG' version of Mame which pre-dated WolfMame.

Unfortunately it still doesn't find the file when a URL is constructed using that version of Mame in the filename. :(

Cheers,
BeeJay.
