  1. Is TG at all interested in promoting score chasing?

    01-19-2018 at 12:16 PM
    Thanks TWIN GALAXIES thanked this post
    I know it probably feels like a bit of a big "pile-on" to TG right now, with the responses to everything happening, but I want to come straight out and ask.

    Is Twin Galaxies at all interested in promoting people going for high scores? Is this scoreboard work actually one of the goals, or ...

    Now that we don't have a forum thread for it, guess we'll need occasional wall postings for people to bring up suggestions for the site. So I'll get one going for the moment.

    First - can we have notifications for when a new track from the marketplace gets accepted? It would be nice not ...

    I know TG has liked to talk about being the original home of competitive gaming, and latelty, with H1Z1, being part of modern esports. However, the thing is, when you look at what's going on here with the community... well, it doesn't seem to match up.

    Thanks Desidious, Tfried4048 thanked this post
    A little thought based on some comments I've seen lately.

    If you don't think a record is deserved - if you think a score isn't a special enough performance to really count as a record - what to do? I think it's obvious. Beat it. Or convince someone else to beat it.

    Just realized I've passed the 100 score submissions mark! It's simultaneously feeling like I've submitted many more than this, while at the same time hard to believe it's been so many. I still have a few more until I hit 100 first place scores, since I have a few Beautiful Katamari and XB1 Pinball Arcade ...

    In case you haven't heard, the company Analogue is introducing a FPGA-powered SNES "compatible" console. Or more accurately, a modern SNES. Wireless controllers, 1080p HDMI output, and supposedly 100% accurate to the original console.

  12. Is the "fat" PS2 back compat acceptable for PS1 submissions?

    Likes rotunda liked this post
    From what I can determine, the "fat" PS2 accomplishes compatibility for PS1 games through the use of the original PS1 chip working as the audio chip for the PS2. While clearly there was more to PS1 than just whichever chip that is, that sounds like it can fit some interpretations of what "original hardware" ...
