The rules dont say you cannot continue and no its not the same as starting over at the end of the game for a 10 million bonus. IF your continue started you back at level 1 and with 0 points then yeah probably. This is nonsense and is just going to really clog things up if people dispute stuff that was already debated. I think the domino man was a huge leechfest but didn't agree that it be disputed for that reason as it was already debated in the submission thread. Unless something new is stated why do this try and get TG to overrule everyone who voted a submission in?

    I havent played this game in a while but doesn't continuing make the opponents easier? Also I'm not sure this would have an effect as it is only the first opponent anyway

    The global rules say no continues. Thats all it says. Nothing about points or level of start. A continue is a continue

    Not asking for code analysis but just some obsevations. I doubt people normally continue on the first fight though or it would be very rare

    As All Twin Galaxy Members Can Clearly See Patrick did Indeed Continue Therefore Broke Twin Galaxy Rules on Continuation should Should Automatically Be REJECTED No Exceptions

    Twin Galaxy Members You Clearly See in these Captures Pictures below from Patrick Maher Video Game Submission From 43:43 to 43:45 of the Video that he did Indeed Continue In Rules for The Game It Never Ever States a Player Can continue therefore this Video Game Submission Should Be Rejected

    Arcade - Mortal Kombat - Points [Tournament Settings] - 25,402,000 - Patrick Maher

    Arcade - Mortal Kombat - Points [Tournament Settings] - 25,402,000 - Patrick Maherimage.png


    Below are the Global Rules and Guidelines that apply to all submissions:
    5
    The use of cheat codes, cheat devices, in-game codes and Continues are Disallowed as a General Rule. The only exceptions to this rule are:


    Any game track/variation that Explicitly Overrides this General Rule with its Own Rules Governing the matter within its specific listed rule set.

    In This Case it Clearly Does Not

    Therefore the Video Game submission should Be Rejected by the Twin Galaxy Members Patrick Broke the Rule

    Well I do think a lot of people do seem interpret what the want out of the global rules. Why does the MAME track explicitly say no continues but not the arcade track if the "global" rules say you cant? So when Triforce mentioned he uses some trick/glitch to keep the values in place while not a continue could easily be said to violate rule #3 of the Global rules could it not? Do I think that is silly point to debate? Yup but its 0 difference here so do we dispute both scores then? No I dont think so. Anyway smh....

    When mame rules say continue = no it is referring to the dip switch not inserting an additional coin

    From What you Say then Both Records Should Disallowed & Removed from Twin Galaxy Scoreboard Data Base

    Since 2 Twin Galaxy Rules were Violated then Both Should Be Removed No Exception going by the Rules of Course

    Rule 3 Triforce Johnson
    The use of "glitches" or "glitch tactics" that defeat the generally accepted understanding of the spirit of the game / or reasonable interpretation of the intention of the game's designers are disallowed as a general rule.

    Rule 5 Patrick Maher
    The use of cheat codes, cheat devices, in-game codes and continues are disallowed as a general rule. The only exceptions to this rule are:

    Any game track/variation that explicitly overrides this general rule with its own rules governing the matter within its specific listed rule set.
