[B]Internet Gaming Bash of the Year 2016[/B]


IGBY is returning in July. Players can sign up for the contest at tournaments.twingalaxies.com and pick what team they wish to play for. Who will win this time? Will it be one of the MARP teams or one of the newcomer teams such as Screenshotties or Virginiawillbehad?

1. - [B]Selected games will be played for the entire five week period July 5th to August 2nd[/B]

 

2. - [B]Each team sends in 2 Game[/B]s. [B]send your game selections to Wolf no later than June 23r[/B]d. Wolf will inform all sites of game selections upon receipt of selections. Should duplicate game selections be received, the team with the highest number of registered players will yield to the team with the smaller number of players. The smaller team will select another game. Wolf will advise of all details once final list of games have been posted. Once games are selected and posted by Wolf. Games will be played with default dip switches


3. - Auto fire is not allowed


4. - [B]Adjudication[/B] – [B]All Submissions require inp, stream, video, or ru[/B]. If submitting inp must be wolfmame .106, latest wolfmame, or ru. if submitting a stream or video make an attempt to show dips and romset. Verifying scores each team will have 1 or 2 people reviewing scores for other teams


5. - [B]Submissions[/B]: players should submit their scores via tournament.vg – as we want to maintain as live a scoreboard as possible, please submit early and often. Please do not hold on to score submissions. 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 disqualified.

 

6. - [B]All games must be completed and submissions received no later than 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time on August 2n[/B]d. Any scores submitted after this time will not be valid. Again, submit early and often.

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

8. Teams are required to have a minimum of 10 players. Any team that does not have 10 registered players by the beginning of the event will be required to be placed in a state of "partnership". This is essentially a merger of two teams. For example, if Team XYZ is partnered with DKF, then the two teams will become "DKF + XYZ", essentially working as one. It is the sole discretion of the event organizer (wolf) if and how partnerships will occur, but in the event they do occur, they will be engineered to ensure overall tournament-wide team balance.

9. Scoring is based on placement and top 5 per team score. 1st and 2nd get more points so if there are 50 scoring positions 1st gets 55 points and 2nd gets 53

10. Banned game list https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1On5-ecExtvP2mdQ4WvJlWqdtwrFuG4mUsefX9aAZrmE/edit?usp=sharing

Seriously? The only reply to this is a cat shitting in a box?

No Team Highscore this year?

@QSpaceman:

I'll try to play if there's a Team Highscore!

Last time I had trouble getting signed in & couldn't play.

Posted by on 2016-06-08 20:20:04


So, was it a different S Baz who submitted scores on 26 games last year? And scored 218 points for your team?

I am new to HighScore, but am interested in playing, if there's enough for a team. I'd support any votes for shmups/STGs, but am always up for playing anything in MAME. 

Posted by on 2016-06-11 04:41:05


@QSpaceman:

ah, no that was me!  & that was awesome!!  smiley

I meant the Yolympics contest:  http://highscore.com/discussions/topic/yolympics-2016/578

If this IGBY is going to be set up like the Yolympics was, I may not be able to enter.  for some reason I am blocked from participating at Twin Galaxies.  by email confirmation I am supposedly registered successfully, but I can't sign up to tournaments or even post a comment there.   "???"   whenever I go to TG it recognizes my account & I'm supposedly loged in, but can't participate.  ll i can do is look at news & threads & scores, just the same as before I signed up.

If there's an independant score entry system like IGBY II, no problem!

anyone have any game suggestions?

Posted by on 2016-06-14 00:50:36


@S.BAZ:

S. BAZ

If you go to http://tournaments.twingalaxies.com/#/event/igby2016/main and log in at the top right with your TG username and password, that should be all it takes.

You and Brutallevel3 make 2 - you'll need to get your skates on find 8 other players so you don't get merged with another team. There are tons of active players here, so that shouldn't be a problem!

It would be a shame not to have a Team Hiscore on the books after the last 2 years. :)

Posted by on 2016-06-14 06:14:49


@QSpaceman:

yeah I did that.  Here's what happened:

I logged in, now it says "SBAZ" in the upper right.  If I hover over that i get the option, "Profile."

if I click "Profile" I get a blank page that says nothing but TwinGalaxies and "SBAZ." The rest, all white.

I signed up for Team Highscore.  It told me I am now on the team.  Now I go back to that page & it tells me there are still 0 players on that team.

Posted by on 2016-06-14 16:27:39


I'll have a go again, all though last year I didn't even get to play all the games 

Posted by on 2016-06-14 19:03:42


@BrutalLevel3:

Welcome to highscore smiley

Posted by on 2016-06-14 19:12:34


I registered at TG, it said an email has been sent but I haven't got it yet. I'm trying to sign up on the IGBY page you linked, when I click log in with my name and password nothing happens.I also "verified" my TG account by calling the number for a pin# as instructed, still can't seem to do it.

Posted by on 2016-06-14 20:46:52


I guess i'll try again tomorrow

Posted by on 2016-06-14 20:49:28


@S.BAZ:

Did you verify your account?

Posted by on 2016-06-14 21:09:42


I just signed up and registered for our team.

The activation email went to my spam/junk folder, if that helps.

Posted by on 2016-06-14 21:34:47


@derek:

yeah, well I got an email saying I need to complete one last step in order to activate my account:  go to the URL & give the activation code.

so I did that & then I got another email saying  "Welcom to Twin Galaxies Forum."

so presumably I activated it.

I never got a notice about calling any number though.   -??

Posted by on 2016-06-14 22:33:05


@BrutalLevel3:

I see you're on the team!  

so now I wonder -- when you click on your name in the upper right, does it show you anything other than your name & a blank page?

Posted by on 2016-06-14 22:37:38


@derek:

I have the same problem.

I already had an account created last year for the last tournament but I had to create a new as the website don't let me in. I created a new account, verified it via the e-mail, I can login into the website, but nothing happen when I try to login in the tournament webpage linked in the first post of this thread. I don't know what's going on there...

Posted by on 2016-06-15 02:11:30


somehow waiting for a few hours solved the problem. I am not able to log in without problem !

I've registered into the AtariAge Highscore team. We're only 2 this year ?

@Mantalow:

A am now able*, I've written "not" instead, which is not very comprehensible XD

Posted by on 2016-06-15 04:21:39


@Mantalow:

The email was in my trash folder, I'll try to sign up again this evening 

Posted by on 2016-06-15 06:12:29


I'm registered :)

Looks like it is now video or INP only for evidence

Posted by on 2016-06-15 19:34:53


@QSpaceman:

Are you going to sign up? smiley

Posted by on 2016-06-15 19:46:46


@S.BAZ:

It let me log in  today and join a team. Have you tried again?

Posted by on 2016-06-15 19:52:41


@derek:

ok, going to try now...

Posted by on 2016-06-15 19:58:34


@derek:

no luck.  I logged out & went to Twin Galaxies to register and I got this message:

"Our records show that you have already registered under the name of S.BAZ."

I went back to the tournament page & logged back in & still the same.  there is no option to sign up for a team, presumably this is becaus I already did!

Posted by on 2016-06-15 20:04:49


@S.BAZ:

When I click my name in top right on the IGBY page I get the same white screen you're referring to, but I was still able to register for the team.

The phone number that I called came up when I was on what I think was Twin Galaxies home page looking around, (I was waiting on the email still) there was something that said "Get verified" in blue so I clicked on it and it asked for some more information and also said call this # for a pin and enter it in the blank.

I think it did the same thing as the email would have done because this morning when I found the email in the trash folder I opened it and clicked on the link, to which it informed me that my account was already verified.

@wolfman24:

Wolf, are you able to see any indication that I've signed up?

Posted by on 2016-06-15 20:05:50


@S.BAZ:

Here's an email address he listed in the TG forums

http://lupoman24@gmail.com

Posted by on 2016-06-15 20:34:23


@derek:

thanks.

so I poked around at TG until I found the option to verify!  So now I'm "verified."  I was successfully able to post a comment!   thanks for the tip smiley

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to make a difference at the IGBY page, I still can't join apparently.

Posted by on 2016-06-15 20:39:18


@S.BAZ:

I think there is a problem with the site from time to time, try again.

I didn't notice anyone from here was playing so i regged for another team. I'll switch, if it's possible.

I'll keep trying.

@WonderBoy:

Posted by on 2016-06-17 13:29:59


@S.BAZ:

I don't see a comment from you at twin galaxies in the IGBY thread, I would think that'd be the place to comment. Someone else mentioned they registered for a team and weren't showing up and it got fixed. 

Posted by on 2016-06-17 13:33:38


@derek:

good idea :)

I posted a comment there.  Right now the IGBY page won't even show me who's on each team, it seems to be getting worse!

Posted by on 2016-06-17 17:56:27


@S.BAZ:

I see you're on the team now and so is sixx :) 

We need to do some recruiting, I've posted on a couple others pages about it and left a comment on one of barrybloso's YouTube videos. Don't know if he'll see it though

Posted by on 2016-06-20 21:10:10


Who was on the team last year?

I know BB from the DudesvilleArcade days (he actually got me into recording using MAMEPlus and talked up HighScore.com), but I haven't heard from him in ages. Don't know if he's still gaming.

I'll send him an email, assuming he's still checking it.

Posted by on 2016-06-21 09:47:47


@BrutalLevel3:

Barry played on the team last year and disappeared from highscore right after

Posted by on 2016-06-21 11:43:33


@derek:

Ah SwwwweeeeeT !!

Wonder Boy's in too... Yeah we need more people !   ==> maybe Larquey or Lenny or Frankie or... kernzy?  (I asked wolf if he could play)

Posted by on 2016-06-22 00:31:54


@derek:

Just added myself on the list ;)

@BrutalLevel3:

here's last year's IGBY page with list of team members:

Posted by on 2016-06-22 01:55:12


@S.BAZ:

Cheers mate. Copied below:

BarryBloso, Darrin9999, DonPedro, GTibel, Larquey, Mantalow, OriginalGamer, PatBB, RichyS, SBAZ, TBE, coleco1981, derek, georgeriley, wonderboy

Looks like it was a bit of a who's who of HighScore.com MAME. I hope I can bring something to the team!

Posted by on 2016-06-22 03:27:29


@GTibel:

yes

Posted by on 2016-06-22 10:20:33


we only have 1 day left but I just remembered, what about Dumple and Event.

Posted by on 2016-06-22 12:23:48


I'll suggest Klax.

Posted by on 2016-06-22 12:28:41


I'll suggest Klax.

Posted by on 2016-06-22 12:54:17


looks like we just got 2 more teammates!  Lauren Tyler (LarcenTyler) and darthkur said they're in, hopefully they'll be signed up today.  That makes 10 laugh

Posted by on 2016-06-22 12:54:34


OK I finally registered. I don't see Space Harrier on the banned list so I'll request that one.

Posted by on 2016-06-22 12:56:21


@S.BAZ:

Dumple is on the screen shotties, I've posted on events 1943 score from this morning but no response.

@Event:

Sweetyes 

Posted by on 2016-06-22 18:31:18


Game discussion time, we have space harrier and klax suggested so far

I'll suggest aerofighters or Varth, or any donpachi. So many games so little timelaugh

@Event:

Refreshing the page after you've made a comment, any game suggestions?

Posted by on 2016-06-22 19:12:18


Klax is banned and so are donpachi and Dodonpachi.

1944 The Loop Master? (all though Wolfmame doesn't seem to run it)

Posted by on 2016-06-22 19:22:36


is that the only way to record games is on wolfmame, cant use fsplit?

 

Posted by on 2016-06-22 19:24:49


gorf,gyruss,renegade, cadillca and dinosaurs(like final fight),twin corbra,jackal

Posted by on 2016-06-22 19:35:55


@Event:

No, we can use whatever to record and upload to youtube,Twitch, or use retrouprising somehow.

If you want to do INP instead then you must use Wolfmame .106 or newer. I just setup Wolfmame .174 last night and was fiddling with it. I'll probably just do youtube for my scoressmiley

Posted by on 2016-06-22 19:36:22


@Event:

Twin cobra is banned (banned because it was already played in one of the last 2 IGBY's)

Gyruss was suggested last year by a few but it turns out some the other players in the tournament can marathon it so we went with another game.

I'm pretty much down for whatever, Cadillacs and dinosaurs sounds great (I should probably play it tonight)smiley

Posted by on 2016-06-22 19:47:07


I'll vote for Cadillacs and dinosaurs and space harrier (just played Cadillacs and Dino's)smiley

I still don't see larcentyler or darthkur on the team yet. We are still at 9

Posted by on 2016-06-22 20:26:44


crap I wonder why Klax is banned... I like Renegade a lot, never played Cadillacs or S.Harrier but if we go with those I won't complain

I'll vote for Renegade & vs. Super Mario Bros!

Posted by on 2016-06-22 21:22:23


@derek:

LarcenTyler is signed up at Twin Galaxies as Lauren R. Tyler & apparently had some issue getting signed on to the team.  Hopefully that can get resolved quickly!  darthkur may not join, he said he doesn't do videos but they're only for 1st place so we'll see...

Posted by on 2016-06-22 21:29:37


I'm easy, but I wouldn't say no to some more Batsugun or another shmup/STG. Gradius or R-Type?

Posted by on 2016-06-23 03:53:35


@S.BAZ:

The rules say videos or INP for all scores this year

Posted by on 2016-06-23 05:15:57


yeah we switched to videos, inp, and retrouprising for this contest. can you guys get your game list to me by the end of the day?

Posted by on 2016-06-23 11:15:27


@wolfman24:

I'm sure we can, we don't have much of choice ;) 

Posted by on 2016-06-23 12:31:09


I'll vote renegade, space harrier, and Cadillacs and Dino's

Posted by on 2016-06-23 12:32:23


I'm in

Posted by on 2016-06-23 12:34:50


@Larquey:

Great, are you able to do videos or INP? The rules have been adjusted this year 

Posted by on 2016-06-23 12:49:31


renegade, dino and cadillacs,flying shark,russian attack{greent beret),ring king maybe

 

Posted by on 2016-06-23 16:17:54


also i have a question, if i youtube the game will i have to go into the games functions menu to show what the difficulty might b at if it has it?

Posted by on 2016-06-23 18:01:10


@Event:

Yeah, That's what I did last year and so did most everyone else. It's quick and easy to do at the beginning of the game, like when you're still on the title screen, show the DIP switches.

If you put up a high score and some one calls you at for not showing the switches/settings it could be disqualified 

Posted by on 2016-06-23 18:27:36


well it looks like we're agreed on Renegade  :)

Posted by on 2016-06-23 19:04:49


@S.BAZ:

We need to figure it out like right now, I was talking to sixx earlier off site and he says he doesn't really care what games are picked and nobody else has weighed in yet and the deadline is upon us :)

Renegade

dino's and caddy's

and the third Space harrier, Mario bros, R-type, Batsugun,R-type or Gradius?

Posted by on 2016-06-23 19:16:03


@derek:

ok well I'll pick Super Mario Bros out of those.

I was also thinking something from a Midway or Capcom collection so I can practice on PSP.

like Paperboy or Gauntlet, Marble Madness, Rampart or Commando or 1943, etc.  If one of those sounds excellent to you go with that, otherwise I pick vs.SMB.

I'm going out & won't be home til late so I'm leaving it to you now!  :)

Posted by on 2016-06-23 19:48:48


@derek:

@derek:

ok thx ill make sure of it.

Posted by on 2016-06-23 20:29:23


Ok, a capcom collection game thats also a shmup (and not banned) would be 1943 kai. thats what i'm going for and Baz says he's alright with that. So 

Cadillacs and dinosaurs

Renegade

1943 kai

Is that alright with everyone?

Posted by on 2016-06-23 20:30:18


@Event:

Looks like we're livesmiley

What do think of the list?

Posted by on 2016-06-23 20:32:45


Well I emailed the list and I'm going to bedsmiley

If we need to change a game then space harrier I'm thinking would be next

Posted by on 2016-06-23 21:17:53


thats a good list, hope they all go through.

Posted by on 2016-06-23 22:40:00


and I missed the game selection sad

Well, I'm not a huge fan of Capcom games but I'll try to help you

Posted by on 2016-06-23 23:35:51

You've missed that part sad

Posted by on 2016-06-25 09:36:03


@derek:

Damned ! That's the team games selection ?

Posted by on 2016-06-25 10:28:35


@Larquey:

As of this moment yeah. I suck at renegade but maybe I'm due for a good scorelaugh

Only 4 people were actively speaking for games so that's where we are on games. Cadillacs and dinosaurs is fun and I also like 1943 Kai but am not good at it. Some of the people on the team are good at it thoughsmiley. We'll shall see what the other teams pick 

Posted by on 2016-06-25 11:08:04


@derek:

i can help u with renegade,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68Zq4muxBX8, also i figured out a way to beat the knife guys and the main boss pretty easliy.

Posted by on 2016-06-25 13:52:48


a couple of things for some of the games, dino and cads ,i dont know if u know this but u can run in the game, u have to double tap the joy in any direction and he'll run, if u press the punch button they do a special move, or u can jump then press punch and do a diff move.

For the 1943 kai, i suggest u take the spread weapon that shoots circles, its fast and it destroys enemys bullets.

Posted by on 2016-06-25 14:17:30


@Event:

Wow, you got Renegade figured outyes, that video is a help.

I figured out caddys and dino's about running attacking, the first time I played I made to the second stage boss. I'm looking forward to playing it some more :)

1943 Kai, is that spread weapon avaliable right from the start? I just need to keep shooting the power up until comes up?

Posted by on 2016-06-25 14:55:44


@derek: No,its not the 1st spread it's a different one,I think it's the 4th weapon u can choose from. Also that weapon is automatic aswell so u can just hold down the fire button.
Posted by on 2016-06-25 17:01:46


@derek: No,its not the 1st spread it's a different one,I think it's the 4th weapon u can choose from. Also that weapon is automatic aswell so u can just hold down the fire button.

@Sixx:

I was just about to do same thing :)

If you don't have a facebook profile you can easily set one up just for the sake of the tourney. From what I remember its less steps (alot less) than registering at twin galaxies and it will give us a private easy to use forum.

@S.BAZ:

Looks like we have a 12th player, I'm assuming from atari age. Are you familiar with name? We need to get him in the loop.

@GTibel:

Haha! You can set up one easily just for the tourney though:)

@GTibel:

know what u mean I can't stand facebook!   I made an account to get in touch with someone & that was great but after that, total annoyance & I deleted it.  laugh  Maybe they should call it "socialize" media instead  xD

--but as derek said, just make an account for the tourney then delete it...  ?

@S.BAZ:

Thanks!  Not sure how much help I'm going to be.  I got everything configured on my MAME cab and I've run a few practice games.  I may be well over my head here, but I'm going to do the best I can for the good of the cause.  :)

Posted by on 2016-07-08 13:37:10


@Deteacher:

yes

Here's hoping we can keep top position over the next few weeks!

@GTibel:

We required to use wolfmame this year, and show the game being loaded in our videos. Or make inp.

Posted by on 2016-07-10 11:32:05


@OriginalGamer:

The new wolfmame .175 is extremely easy to use

Posted by on 2016-07-10 11:33:43


hey guys when you are making videos can you try and show these 3 things

1) Show that it's WolfMAME
2) Show the boot up of MAME
3) Show the game settings
 
thanks
Posted by on 2016-07-10 12:03:04


?! Show boot up of MAME. I don't want to re-launch each time mame for another go. I thought this should be fun. I am using the latest MAME and showing the dipswitches, which is more than enough I thought;... I'll never do a Top 5 place.....

Posted by on 2016-07-10 12:35:55


Then just disqualify my score single score. sigh.... Sorry but I am a bit grumpy now indecision

Posted by on 2016-07-10 12:40:16


From your own rules:

Score Submission Requirements

This competition requires a strong level of proof in score submissions. This means a video (YouTube, Twitch, etc.) or replay (INP, etc.) is required for every submission. No exceptions. Scores should be submitted within 24 hours of their achievement. Sandbagging is expressly forbidden. Score disputes will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Posted by on 2016-07-10 12:45:00


@derek:

I tried a earlier version of wolf and didn't care for it at all, but I'll give this one a shot.

@wolfman24:

Showing gui when loading a game is enough to prove its wolf MAME, right?

Posted by on 2016-07-10 14:25:59


@wolfman24:

do you mean for recording videos instead of submitting an inp?  I thought the rules were saying wolfmame is only required for inps.:

 

4. - [B]Adjudication[/B] – [B]All Submissions require inp, stream, video, or ru[/B]. If submitting inp must be wolfmame .106, latest wolfmame, or ru. if submitting a stream or video make an attempt to show dips and romset. Verifying scores each team will have 1 or 2 people reviewing scores for other teams

 

if we are required to prove we used wolfmame I'm afraid all my scores must be disqualified.

Posted by on 2016-07-10 15:57:19


@S.BAZ:

Yeah, kinda hard for them to tell us we have to use wolf mame for everything now. I'm  probably going to continue use it from here on out as its simple and I now have most of the missing bios files to run most everything

Posted by on 2016-07-10 16:37:57


@derek:

I would just play on RU but can't anymore.  the computer I use doesn't do it for some reason.  maybe 64bit windows isn't supported.  I can't seem to make wolfmame 106 work for me.  I use wolfmame153 but apparently this version is not acceptable for IGBY.  So I'll have to go back to preparing my setup...

Posted by on 2016-07-10 18:18:24


@S.BAZ:

I just tried the new wolf .175 and I have 64bit. Downloaded it from the official site put a game in roms folder and it works. Strange thing is it gives me some weird error everytime it starts.

Posted by on 2016-07-11 01:18:35


@OriginalGamer:

I get the same error.

Posted by on 2016-07-11 05:28:44


@OriginalGamer:

You'll need qsound to play  Cadillacs and Dino's  (along with many other capcom games) and the new MAME bios files to play metal slug. I can copy the links this afternoon.

Posted by on 2016-07-11 05:36:01


@S.BAZ:

Ru did require their extension to be installed on your browser as a add on, from what I remember it was only compatible with firefox and Internet explorer. Idk if that's still true or if that helps you out at all. 

Wolfmame .175 is easy to use, I had it setup in 10 minutes. 

I also left a comment in TG about how we are being required to use wolfmame now and copied he rules with it, one if the guys claims that the wolfmame clause has always been there but I honestly can't see where it says that. It definitly looks like it's worded to require wolfmame for inp submissions and video or stream need to show dips. I really doubt anything will change so if you want keep competing then you'll need to use wolfmameindecision

Posted by on 2016-07-11 10:57:49


@derek:

ok. 

Yeah clearly it did not say that in the rules.  it says for inp submissions use wolfmame.  For video submissions show dips.

some of these IGBY guys, I tell ya.  frown

I'm also wondering -- is there anyone on our team reviewing scores for other teams?

Posted by on 2016-07-11 14:31:40


@S.BAZ:

I've looked at a few. Mainly other videos, I did watch one inp thoughwink

Posted by on 2016-07-11 15:25:24


sorry about this rule changes guys i am trying to get it changed back since I wasn't even asked about my say on the matter

Posted by on 2016-07-11 18:03:29


@wolfman24:

Thank you wolf, they did already remove a score but I'm pretty sure event will put up a better one with wolf MAME now that he has the qsound filelaugh

If they change it back that's great, if not then so be it. I'm some what relieved in the fact that you admitted it was a rule change. Maybe compromise and don't Dq the scores already up but new scores must use wolfmame? Just a thought ;) 

Thanks for putting on the tournamentyes

@wolfman24:

Thanks wolf, echo what derek said, much appreciated.

Posted by on 2016-07-11 18:40:35


@derek:

where did you go to find them?

Posted by on 2016-07-11 18:41:08


@S.BAZ:

The qsound? Go check the fb group :)

Larquey put in a drobox and linked it in your thread about not getting Dino and caddys to work

Posted by on 2016-07-11 19:43:33


@derek:

oh, sorry!  laugh

I meant where did you find the videos to review for other teams?

Posted by on 2016-07-12 00:51:42


@S.BAZ:

Whenever you click on game in the tournament page it opens a list of the scores from highest to lowest, right next each one is a little gray square with a squiggle line representing inp or a square with a picture of a camera, click on those squares to view a video or download the inp :)

@derek:

oh, nice  :)

Ahoy Highscore.com Igby-ers :)

 

Xelnia (head tourney ref) has asked me to post the following:

"Several Mortal Kombat scores from all teams had to be DQ'd. Some players are using default settings or not showing the difficulty (rules require Very Hard difficulty) and some have NVRAM enabled which makes playback impossible. Please take a look and see if you're one of the recent DQs.

Double-check the method for adjusting the difficulty settings, make sure you show it if you're submitting a video, and always make sure NVRAM is disabled (setting the nvram_directory to NUL through command line or editing the mame.ini file.

Also, PLEASE only submit one attempt per INP...sitting through 37 credits/1 hour of attempts should be an automatic DQ, but since it's not explicit rule I just ask that you do the verifiers a favor and only have 1 attempt per INP. ty <3"

 

Keep going good everyone :)

Posted by on 2016-07-22 14:18:21


@Larquey:

Could this nvram issue be the problem you're having with some inp?

Posted by on 2016-07-22 22:08:26


@QSpaceman:

Is this nvram issue why sometimes inps are out of sync when played back?

Posted by on 2016-07-22 22:10:37


@QSpaceman:

Thank you for posting here alsosmiley

Posted by on 2016-07-22 22:14:44


More WolfMAME crap to deal with at this stage? Arrrrgh! Lost my two best scores!

Oh well, at least there's still time to play them again.

Posted by on 2016-07-24 08:29:51


@BrutalLevel3:

More mad at myself for not doing more research when I set up WolfMAME. Was assuming it sorted out everything by default.

Vent over. :-)
