Brian, just resubmit the same performance. You don't have to replay the game. And you earn submissions by adjudicating others. It is give and take, just like in the real world.datagod Today, 07:35 PM
... and if you are after quickly earning some points, verify the old threads in the Submission Review forum (that have not been talked about a lot... they're probably staying forever!).Barthax Today, 07:17 PM
Quite amusing - especially when you consider the House of the Dead: Overkill submissions I put in with MF this, F'ing that and numerous other "loverly" sayings, but ***? Oh no!

I get that TG might want to ban the use of certain words on the forums, but I think censoring the actual games is a little much:
Fair enough. An angle of gaming I don't share (and I'm sure you can tell that from the above!) but respect that others can & do. ;) TG's legacy is mired in the the oblique quantification of separate individual tasks (variations) but they are ultimately stored in the same logical database format. It is no genius step for TG to add a "category" facet to the varitions to meet your example (High score/IL combined total/Glitchless speedruns/GlitchBarthax Today, 06:58 PM
I should have said classification of world records. Basically it's all about how things are classified and organized.
I'm not really suggesting anything change or that ILs are not 'real' world records or anything like that. I'm just saying that lumping them together into one 'package' would serve better as classifying the world record for a game. The idea of a standard for variations is in a way to 'crown a champion.' I mean, I like

Tried to ask this a couple of times but Jace was obviously ignoring me (j/k):
If a user rejects their own submission (eg because of a typo in the score/time) is there a way to hasten the adjudication process?
This would aid in clearing out the review forum.
It would still cost the user submission points etc, just get them through a bit quicker when its an obvious input error
Obviously it would not be wise
Slight misunderstanding resolved, thanks. :)
OK, so for Glass Joe in your first example you mention this shouldn't be counted as a World Record. You have to define what a "world record" is... Is it the best score achieved? Why would the joint holders of the current Glass Joe not be TG's "world record" claim? Personally, I don't believe anything on TG, Cyberscore, VGR, Wii-Records, CAG, etc. can be classed as a
Im not saying that at all. Im for glitchless and glitch speedruns both on TG. I love doing ILs and they should still be tracked, but there has got to be main variations.

I think having the individual tracks is important, but i dont think every single track should be counted as Wr. i just think. you dont track every stage for score for any high
Let's be honest..."tompa" asks why he should not be able to bypass TG and contact the gamer direct,
Answer - because the gamer sent their performance to TG...NOT to the general gaming community.
There seems to be this sense of entitlement with the adjudication process that everyone has carte-blanche to do whatever it takes to authenticate. That is a misconception and over-stepping of bounds.
The idea of combining causes more headaches than it solves - old TG has already tried "Career Notes" and "Career Score" for the early Guitar Hero titles, for example. The principal problem is that you still need to track all the individual levels separately in order to have a correct total at the end with which to compare because if a gamer submits just one individual level and it turns out to be an improvement you have to knowBarthax Today, 10:59 AM
I've been starting a lot of threads lately, but only because I'd like to see a lot of positive changes for Twin Galaxies. I feel TG is heading in the right direction at this point, and I want to further help it move that way.
This post is about tracking individual tracks or levels in games. Some examples: A single song in Guitar Hero, a single track in F-Zero, A single fight in Punchout!!... Twin Galaxies alluded to the idea that these
You are correct in that no-one can stop you contacting the [any] gamer... Make sure your wording cannot be perceived as though being representative of TG along with caution that the gamer you are contacting may already have been through the same situation previously and is already tired of the conversation, or worse you could be accidentally contacting someone estranged from the intended individual. Standard ethics apply in contacting a strangerBarthax Today, 07:28 AM
I really don't get the "nonsense" part of the matter. If I'm personally interested in seeing a run that has no video on TG. What sense does it make to ask Twin Galaxies about it and not the runner directly? It doesn't matter to me if I think the run is fake or if I want to "steal tricks" from it. I'm part of the speedrun scene for entertainment, I rarely do any runs myself, I just enjoy watching them. If there is a time on theTompa Today, 05:19 AM

RTM REPLY - Jace is correct...this nonsense has to stop.
In the first TG Book of Records there is an anecdote about Walter and Billy showing up at a gamer's doorstep of their home and where Billy asked direct and hard-hitting questions to the gamer. This story always bothered me for a number of reasons, and this is besides the fact that the gamer did in fact have something to hide. Whoever gave Walter or Billy the right to

I use a Sony HandyCam. It has a mini-HDMI port which I output to an Elgato HD device. The camera just sends the video feed - it doesn't record. I do the video capture on my laptop using XSplit. The Elgato is awesome, but there is a delay of about 1500 ms that you should account for if you're splicing multiple sources (microphone, etc.).donatreides Yesterday, 01:13 PM
Pulsante is Italian for button is what was explained to me. Apparently there were no dedicated Hyper Olympic machines over there and they had a variety of different set ups. 2 run buttons and a jump, joystick AND buttons for both run AND jump, Joystick wiggle to run and up or down to jump, etc...
Here's a score that never happened. I don't think I can ever prove it but it WAS taken off the scoreboard almost as soon as it went up and has been off for almost 14 years. It came up again when TG went live again in Dec/Jan. During the THPS2 Combo Contest TG had a score entry screen ON the home page and it was just a holding place for score people SAID they got. It was never for actual scores that were submitted and approved. So it was just a littleFly Yesterday, 07:36 AM
I don't use a camcorder, but I highly recommend getting an Elgato HD capture device: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/...CAEN_GooglePLA
For webcam I use the Logitech HD Pro C920: http://www.logitech.com/en-ca/produc...ro-webcam-c920
Great for capture video in HD and it's the most popular webcam choice for people who stream.
Earlier this week, Jace indicated that he was open to the idea of multiple modern WolfMAME versions being allowed (as opposed to just WolfMAME .106). Jace, can you confirm this?
Also, he mentioned the possibility of a "final emulation solution" in the same post. I was under the impression that a "TG MAME" was no longer happening. Can you tell us what your current thinking is on this, and maybe give us MAME-ers an
You are able to set the game to endless mode when you go to settings.
The very first setting under general, it says "Game ends at". You have 4 choices: 2048, 4096, 8192 or Endless
Also, the track rules have now been edited to include the "undo" button.
2nd request...This should be the "Hungary" track I submitted for. There is no such thing as "fastest completion", nor this rule set.

Duplicate entries for user "Dick Moreland". Account merge probably will solve it:
Arcade/MAME "Speed Ball" and Android's Zen Pinball added to the list. Looking at Android pinball games is a long list... Will take time to add them. ;)
The version by "2048 Game" is available at https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...eight2048.game but there is no Endless Mode option. There is, however, an option to "undo" the previous move which the rules do not cover: this would indeed be an almost endless game if the user is allowed to use the undo feature until they get a favourable lay of new tiles with each move.Barthax 03-26-2015, 01:52 AM
