Submission question, posted scores in bootleg video formats/bootleg roms?
Hi, familiar with TG, I remember trying to record a high score a decade ago on vhs but it didn't work out. Lol
My main question is, I see high scores for a game in NTSC format that never had an NTSC release? Are those scores void? In question, the scores are for a PAL Exclusive 2600 game (No NTSC release). The score itself isn't anything special, and besides that it's difficulty B (novice) vs A Expert/Normal. If emulation is allowed, why not the original version versus a bootleg version?
I guess my main question is, is this as listed above allowed, and why? Bootleg and hack roms can have a different score outcome, correct?
also, are scores in easy/novice mode something worth records? Playing on easy seems a tad silly ("I'm the best at *not* being the best at this game!111", etc) Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a world record? I'm joking a little, I can possibly understand different difficulties presenting a different game. However, I do not understand the allowance of bootlegs or hacks? Thanks in advance, and take care everyone.
If a mod would care to PM me or general discussion, I firmly don't believe that bootlegs or hacks should count for world records, that just seems wrong.

I'm just curious about bootleg carts or roms and high scores? Is this allowed for twin galaxies? I didn't see why someone seriously going for a world record can't play an official game release version. This probably (hopefully) isn't an issue outside of obscure PAL exclusive 2600 games that never had an NTSC release?
Obviously from my post count I am new on the forums, but I do feel like it's a logical question as I can understand an oversight. I absolutely respect everyone here that knows the ropes more than I. :)

Bootleg ROMS will have to be a seperate track under the same platform as the original. So for those games you have to
create seperate tracks.
ARCADE platform: GAME: mspacman
mspacman (midway) - will be under ARCADE platform with mspacman PCB frpom MIdway as the original PCB
mspacman (bootleg) - will be under ARCADE platform with mspacman (bootleg) as a seperate track not under original
MAME platform: mspacman
mspacman (mspacman midway ROM) - will be under MAME platform with mspacman ROM from MIdway as the original ROM
mspacman (bootleg) - will be under MAME platform with mspacman (bootleg) as a seperate track not under original track for mspcman (midway)
Same for any other platform or game. Bootlegs could be under speperate platform depends upon if the device is an emulated hardware of the oroginal hardware then that will be under a new platform for the bootleg. If a bootleg runs under the same hardware as the original. Like using a bootleg ROM on Atari or Commodore then that will be a seperate track and not to be listed as a derivative under original game.

My question is specifically about the 2600 game Mr.Postman that never had an NTSC release. I only see high scores for the NTSC bootleg version and strangely also at difficulty B (Novice).
Sorry, my registration date has nothing do do with a major overlook.
