Any Galaga masters out there?
Personally I would support allowing submission of the score under both the marathon and 5 lives-only TGTS tracks. The arcade rules for the 5 lives-only TGTS track specifically allow you to use marathon settings and take your score after your 4th death as valid for a TGTS submission. The arcade rule for the 5-lives TGTS track state: "Special Rules: Attempts for this variation may be done on Marathon Settings, but once you've lost your 4th Life, you may not allow your ship to be captured or your Tournament Score attempt ends immediately". It seems the same rule should apply to MAME as well and it just wasn't explicitly copied into the MAME rules when it was added to the Arcade rules like it should have been. During a previous incarnation of TG, I remember specifically asking a TG referee if this would be allowed under MAME and being told it should be ok since it was allowed under Arcade.

If I played a game for 12 hours my response to doing it again for semantics would be less than cordial.
There's precedent for allowing this if that's what people care about, but really it's common sense.

Outstanding performance, PAC. Shows you what happens when a world class player "masters" a game. Congrats!
I would accept this submission under the TGTS variation. MAME rules should mimic the Arcade's.
this is just what I was told by someone else before the TGSAP rules came into effect and before the overhaul. If it's good enough for the rest of the voters then I have no qualms. Some people have to have the DIPS exactly as specified with no wiggle room whatsoever, others are more open minded as long as 5 lives is 5 lives played.
Bosconian TGTS is another example... MAME wants it 3 lives + one at 20k + one at 70k, Arcade wants it 5 lives + zero bonus. What's the difference here?

About the show......maybe someday. ;)
Thanks a lot to all. Now I am a verified menber and I am very proud of it. I also feel proud to belong to this great family. It is an honor for me

Looking forward to adjudicating it when you eventually submit it to TG as well.
A Question: I have to submit it at MARATHON settings, TOURNAMENT settings or BOTH? What do you think?
