Yeah it's a bit hard with the webcam I'm using built into the laptop/tablet thingy my wife has. After it was done I realized the snapshot I took came out really blurry. I don't know how to remedy the glare and fuzziness that this webcam is showing and I've been trying believe me. I don't think Win 8.1 is for me (I want XP back). What I will probably do is take snapshots with my iPhone so that'll make it easier to get close as in this one the cordDesidious Today, 06:57 AM

As long as I can find the games I'm looking for them I'm cool with whatever is done. It probably just needs to be cleaned up a bit. Seeing Zen Pinball boards having separate tracks not under Zen Pinball is pretty much my only area of complaint really and that's not for this topic. If all the clutter is fixed then merging the respect online shops to their respected consoles is perfectly fine.Desidious Today, 06:40 AM
I know this is an odd request.. but here it goes..
My good friend Thomas THC passed away way too soon, and it came as a chock to me and the Danish Arcade scene.
He was quite the player, and was fast to master a game that fell in his taste.
I know the rules state that it must be the person that got the record, that also have to "apply" for it in the adjudication submission forum,
So I just donated to the following track:
When I entered '50' and clicked donate an error message popped up that there was some sort of database error. I tried refreshing the page and the error message remained. When I went back to the donation page I saw that I was double charged for the donation, giving the track a total of 100 submission
Ahh, I can finally quote again :) I tried all day yesterday. Anyway, that was another point I forgot to add, Pete. Or, something like "The Pinball Arcade" on the PS3, I believe is download only (I've never seen a disc)..Now for the PS4 they have a disc version with a bunch of tables on it. And of course you can download the tables for the PS4. There's too much going on there!
Brandon, I see what you mean about convenience,
Quick question: do TG developers use a sandbox environment to test their code before publication to the live site? A lot of odd behaviours are arriving on the live site which makes me think it is being tested on directly (which doesn't make for a good user experience).Barthax Today, 02:59 AM
RTM REPLY - how very true. Take "KC Munchkin" for the Odyssey 2...on occasion your character can accidentally go thru a ghost much like it can in the "Pacman" series. So imagine if someone changed the rules to say this is not allowed. Considering that the older performances are from 2000 and prior, and that the tapes are LONG since gone (whoever has them from those older/inactive referees is anyone's guess), such rule changesRTM Today, 12:36 AM
Same issue for me, These were accepted but have not yet updated in the scoreboard
Inaugural score accepted but not showing on scoreboard:
1. Game Title = Black Widow
2. Platform = MAME
3. Track = Points Tournament Settings
4. Description of Issue :
My new WR score of 313,075 points did not update when the score was accepted. Here is the adjudication thread showing it is accepted :
But the scoreboard
You do have a good point RaGe. I'm in preference of keeping them separated and my reasonings are simple. There are games like mobile games on the Vita (and possibly PS4) and those for download-only through PSN. I prefer a separate place for them for sheer convenience, especially as more games are added by users and the online shops of their respected consoles. I guess we can leave it up to the devs at this point. lolDesidious Yesterday, 09:59 PM
I'm still listed in the database twice also.

My current TG account is under John McAllister.
I also noticed that the player skill index is incorrect. It's showing 11 for me right now, it's only adding 1 point for games that have more than 1 submission. It should be up around 30 or so.
You are correct in that I technically played a "firing" variation, but
the truth is I never actually fired a shot. The way to score highly on the game
is to concentrate on avoidance and picking up the chutes. You have to pretty
much stagger-move, viewing the screen in approximately 1/5th horizontal sections
and moving from section to section depending on which areas are safe.
Sorry, I posted and accidentally deleted my post.
The answer is to click on the "Twitch" icon in the blue menu bar (2nd from right) and add your stream to the list of member streams.
I mash buttons. Nothing too exciting but some people get a kick out of it.
Edit: how do you get the twitch icon to show in your profile/avatar section of posts?
The following track should be organized to start at the lowest to the highest elapsed time:

At the time I added "PS3 PSN" to the list of platforms, it seemed necessary to me. Now, I don't think it's necessary. It's all being played on a PS3 (or PS4), whether it's a downloaded game from PSN, or not. Anyone who owns the system will know where to find the game. Those two "platforms", PS3 & PS3 PSN, could be combined...And PSN left out for the PS4 and PS Vita altogether :)RaGe Yesterday, 11:52 AM
The one thing I could not understand about TG's "do not track" stuff - even though I was a contributor to the list - was that if the game were to be tracked, people could look, scoff and walk away knowing that there was little value in the title/score. However, if the game was on the list people were more likely to question its absence from the scoreboard.Barthax Yesterday, 12:27 AM
I am so making a Color A Dinosaur track once I get an Everdrive or find a cartssdninja Yesterday, 12:07 AM
You're still on top so I kind of expected a response, thanks for the insight. :) In both scenarios there is only one joystick in use: either left or right. I think left joystick is scrolling but right joystick is single screen. There's no "both joystick" mode that I can tell: once you start using one joystick, the other stops being recognised until after the start of the new game.
If I read correctly,
Any progress to report?
Many items in the Shoutbox Archive have been duplicated 11-12 times.
The original list of games that TG "would not track" was initially quite small. Click here and go to the "High Scores" link on the left and then select "Settings" and go way down to the very bottom. This was the original short list and it was intended for MAME although equally applicable to arcade.
Incidentally, if you click on the "Rules" section some of the original rules as maintained by the
Oh yes...the "single screen" option.
This is most definitely NOT a game where as a player you want to be sequestered to a single screen...it works against you, trust me, especially once the speed reaches peak at I think 300 points. Keep in mind that in this game there is a bit of a lag from standing still to moving, and in that short span of time you can easily get hit by something.
As a rule of thumb to be consistent
I actually know quite a bit about this game...I think my WR still stands on it !!
OK, when I played the game back then it was always using a single joystick. If a possibility existed using a second, not only did I not know of this but I can't see how to do so without it being extremely awkward holding the joysticks let alone firing. So it is not already stated, single joystick should be the rule.
We have Freedom Fighters on the scoreboard for Odyssey 2 / Videopac. The rules indicate to use button 0: which is to play the game firing disabled. Button 1 plays the game with firing enabled. Something the rules don't cover is which joystick to use: one joystick will play the game in a scrolling environment like Defender but the other joystick will play the game on a single screen. Does anyone have any clarification on this
Video has been removed for being too long.
If someone can find a way to track one of the old "not to be tracked" games: it can be tracked in the new TG. A number of those old decisions were biased. For example, Leprechaun was considered a "children's game" for many years and was actively prevented from being added until it could be proven that the game had a finite "child element" and became a difficult game. Times change, opinions change and now there areBarthax 05-27-2015, 12:10 AM
Just to bring this into the wider discussion: http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...drew-Mee/page2
Most (all?) Android mobile phone have a USB or Bluetooth connection capability and can have a keyboard, mouse or gamepad. With this in mind, I fail to see why there should be a separate platform for "touchscreen" or "no touchscreen". They are equal as the use of controller
