    @ 2:37 you're actually speeding up the emulator to account for your dropping frames. That's not a good thing ;)

    You should address the problem - Your recording program. The emulator has to stay at defaults.

    I'm gonna try CCS64 next. Only becomes an issue with some games and only when streaming which is why i think OBS has something to do with the Framerate. Still its running 100% at 50FPS at that point I am starting to think that option doesn't do a whole lot of anything. :/

    It's definitely OBS that's dropping your speed. @kernzyp had the same issue, I believe. You should ask him what he did to resolve it, rather than using a different emulator. VICE was chosen as the "official" emulator to use. Using a different one, even though it's a good one, is asking for trouble in the future.. "He used that alternative emulator, so why can't I use this alternative one?" yada yada. Plus, everyone is on the same page using VICE. Adjudicators know what to look for. More emulators, more problems.

    It only does it on some games, so it's not that bad. You can choose another of the hundreds in the database. If it's a game you really want to compete on, you can always use a different recording program for the problem game...That may actually be what Paul did to resolve the issue for him.

    I am using Vice and that setting just tells Vice how to render DirectX on the PC (at least that is what it says "render directx to primary surface") If it makes the emulator run a little faster as you say so that it can keep up with the overhead of OBS and run at 100% what is the concern? The defaults are still set and you know exactly what I changed to "fix" performance right?

    It speeds it up a bit, but is it evening the emulator out, or is it running slightly faster? Adjudicators shouldn't have to figure that out. Also, similar to my above comment, if you change this setting, someone else may want to change another setting.. It's best to just stick with the defaults, which were agreed upon, and that everyone else uses. It ensures a level playing field.

    Unless you're going to comment again, we both made our points. Now adjudicators can read what we wrote and vote however they feel is right.

    Hey chaps,
    I voted yes.
    So should everybody else. Dropped frames once in a while is not cheating.

    If it happens to me again in the future, I'll record externally.

    Game information
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Bug_(video_game)

    A ladybug who dies will shrink from view and be briefly replaced with icons resembling the stereotypical wings and halo of an angel.


    The colors of the hearts and letters cycle through a short red, a middling yellow, and a longer blue. The point values are as follows:


    Flower: 10 points (20, 30, or 50 points with appropriate multiplier)
    Blue letter/heart: 100 points (200, 300, or 500 points with appropriate multiplier)
    Yellow letter/heart: 300 points (600, 900, or 1500 points with appropriate multiplier)
    Red letter/heart: 800 points (1600, 2400, or 4000 points with appropriate multiplier)
    Vegetable: Starts at 1000 points, increases by 500 with each level to a maximum of 9500 points on level 18. Beyond this level, the vegetable's appearance (horseradish) and point value remain fixed.
    If a heart is consumed while it is blue, a point multiplier will come into effect, indicated by the blue section in the upper right corner of the screen. The first blue heart doubles all point values, the second triples them and the third quintuples them. This multiplier lasts until the level is complete. Eating hearts while they are yellow or red offers no benefit beyond the points collected.


    At each level, the maze will contain three letters. The first will be randomly selected from the set of {X, T, R} (which appear only in EXTRA), the second will be randomly selected from the set of {S, P, C, I, L} (which appear only in SPECIAL), and the third will be an A or an E (which appear in both words). A secondary goal of the player is to complete the words SPECIAL (indicated in red in the top left corner) and EXTRA (in yellow at top center). If, for example, a letter S is consumed while it is red, the corresponding letter in the word SPECIAL will change from grey to red. Eating an S while it is any other color (or if the S in SPECIAL is already red) offers no benefit beyond the points collected. Completing the word SPECIAL rewards the player with a free game, while completing EXTRA gives the player an extra life. Completing either word causes all its letters to return to normal and immediately advances the player to the next level.


    The vegetables associated with the first 18 levels and their corresponding point values are: 1 - cucumber (1000), 2 - eggplant (1500), 3 - carrot (2000), 4 - radish (2500), 5 - parsley (3000), 6 - tomato (3500), 7 - pumpkin (4000), 8 - bamboo shoot (4500), 9 - Japanese radish (5000), 10 - mushroom (5500), 11 - potato (6000), 12 - onion (6500), 13 - Chinese cabbage (7000), 14 - turnip (7500), 15 - red peper (8000) [note that the name is misspelled in the game], 16 - celery (8500), 17 - sweet potato (9000), 18 - horseradish (9500).
