    You'll have to redo it under TGTS guidelines.

    Now, had you originally done 5/life rules and still achieved 20 million, you could have submitted the same video for both because the settings were higher than the minimum requirement for Marathon (20/70/70). I think... That's my theory but I may be wrong.
    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.

    Asking him to do it again for TGTS because it wasn't set to 5 lives is ridiculous. Only situation I can think of where unused lives being awarded may matter is an Asteroids situation where the drawing of all the extra ships may slow down the game. Makes zero difference for Galaga. 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?

    Stephen Krogman is well aware of the video and also sends his congrats. I have a couple questions to ask.

    1: i have checked MARP and the inp file has unconfirmed next to the score.
    If it was checked ... How many days / weeks do you think it will take to check ?

    2: have you played on a arcade platform?
    Will you be willing to duplicate this performance on an arcade platform if invited to a show ?

    3: are you using a controller ? Keyboard ? While playing.

    Awesome performance.... Neil
    Thanks Neil

    I think it is already confirmed

    I played with WOLFMAME 0.162, with a Laptop Acer Aspire E 15 (with the Keyboard)

    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?

    You can submit it for both. You used marathon settings but if you only used 5 lives maximum, I would accept under the tournament settings too.

    There are a problem when I submit the INP:


    • pac_galaga_20000000_wolf162.zip - Your file of 20.13 MB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 19.07 MB for this filetype.


    Any advice?
