Sorry omargeddon, I think you're in the wrong category!

Here the right category: http://highscore.com/scoreboard/AtariFlashback2/241

@Larquey: I talked to him with S.Baz and he told me that The Atari Flashback 2 could be in the Emulated category. I requested several games for The Atari Flashback 2 and only told me that it could be in Emulated Category

Weird! Yet the category exists, maybe there is no administrator for it!

@Larquey:

Voting yes!  The flashback 2 hardware emulates 2600/VCS hardware, allowing it to play the same 2600 rom as an Atari..  Therefore: Correct category!  yes

@Larquey:

oops, I meant @omargeddon surprise

Some admins (including myself) have added charts in the Flashback categories for games which have the same original rom that can be played on an Atari 2600 or 2600 emulator. 

Since then I have come to understand that the Flashback 2 uses hardware emulation, while Flashbacks 3 - 8 and Flashback Portable use software emulation.  (The original Atari Flashback is a unique system and comes with new versions of the old games.  It does not play the original Atari roms like the other Flashbacks do.)

My thought is that having two separate charts for the same game emulated seems redundant and pointless.  It also seems that this would lead to having more and more charts for the same game emulated (using different emulators).   This would make it more and more inconvenient to find out who is the proper record-holder.

So, therefore I have decided to stop adding charts for Atari Flashbacks 3-8 and FB Portable, unless for some reason there is a game on one of these emulation consoles that we cannot play any other way.   I also stopped adding charts in categories for other specific emulators and emulation consoles, such as Colecovision Flashback and Virtual Console -- unless it is a game which is only playable on that specific emulator or emulation console.

@S.BAZ: exact. Now I understand this. Flashbacks can enter the Emulated Category. Intellivision Flashback, Colecovision Flashback, Mini Nes classic, Commodore etc. all those can be in Emulated Category.
