    The Challenge for Triforce Duplicate it on Video or if he has Video of his Performance to Allow Twin Galaxy Members to Adjudicate and Take it from there.


    If it is a Trick That Triforce used let Twin Galaxy Members Decide by Adjudication of his Video Game Submission

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

    Does anybody know more about the original adjudication of Triforce's score, specifically who the Referee was that verified it and was the full game taped?

    I noticed this older thread: http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...647#post764647. It has some comments about Triforce's score including:

    What I remember is this title being placed under review in early 2010, shortly after Triforce was accused of cheating. The Reptile bonus is not why he was accused. The claim was that Triforce was left unattended by refs at FunSpot while attempting his record, and he scored points by beating a stand-still second player multiple times. This was supported by the claim that the joysticks at FunSpot were broken (they always have been), and that the referee reviewing the score was his buddy.
    Do any players or former refs have more information about why the title was placed under review for years and these accusations?
    Thanks HugDD, hanasu thanked this post

    2010...well after I left TG, I cannot remember historically if this was the Bouvier-Patterson era or the Adler-Knucklez-era.

    Regardless of which, leaving a performance of this nature mid-game is a no-no.

    I remember someone calling me over to verify their completed "No Hammer Donkey Kong" performance...I could not as it was impossible to know if they truly did not use the hammer. Same for a performance on "Dragon Spirit"...no way to know if a continue was used.

    It would be of interest to know who the referee was, but regardless of which, if that is indeed what happened, the earlier performance should never have been accepted by TG.
