    Formal request for rule amendment

    Hi TG

    This request is to amend the rules for the Crazy Kong tracks on both Arcade and MAME

    Currently the rules state:
    "Extra life at 7000 points" (Arcade) and "Bonus Life: 10000" (MAME)

    As you can see there is some disparity between the two. In addition there are some MAME scores that had the bonus life setting set at 7000, as per arcade rules, but against those of MAME. This is an unfortunate occurrence but one that has been accepted by the Crazy Kong competitors to not give an advantage or disadvantage either way.

    I recommend the following amendment for both tracks:


    "Bonus life: 7000 or 10000"

    No scores would need to be removed as it encompasses submissions set on either setting.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    All rule sets have been revised and have been changed to include "Bonus life: 7000 or 10000".

    Please check and confirm.

    May I ask what is the the reasoning for this TG decision. I'm curious.

    For example, is any such request automatically accepted without TG offering reasoning as to why it's accepted?

    "I speak from pure logic. If I let go of a hammer on a planet that has a positive gravity, I need not see it fall to know that it has in fact fallen." - Mr Spock (Court-Martial episode)

    "
    I speak from pure logic. If I play a game at a starting setting of 7,000 for an extra life instead of 10,000 and score 100,000 on my 1st life, I need not examine the program to know that it has in fact no impact on the outcome" - What Mr Spock would say if he was a member of Twin Galaxies

    I don't give a sh*t what "Mr Spock" would say IF he were a member here. I didn't ask "Mr Spock". I'm asking TG for the reasoning behind their decision!

    What would Sheldon Cooper say if he was a member here?

    Sheldon Cooper would likely say "If Mr Spock said it then logically it must be true ".

    The reasoning is in the original post, and nothing gets automatically accepted.
