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: [b]latest WolfMAME, WolfMAME .106, or RetroUprising [/b]
All scores require at least a screenshot


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

Cool! I don't think I understand this rule: -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 does it mean we will need to wait 24 hrs before uploading? Or it must be uploaded within a day of achieving the score?

I think you have 24 hours to upload it, this would prevent cheaters to edit video

I'll probably sit this one out; I'll more than likely do IGBY again next year if it comes up (even though summers are busier for me) smiley

looking forward to this.  no idea how much time I'll have for it but must. make. effort.

i've tried to register but I'm running into a wall.  it tells me I must be logged into TwinGalaxies (even though I already am logged in.)  and there don't seem to be any other options.  the "Log In" button doesn't respond  -??
