    Done. Good that the first step toward dropping the "106 standard" has been taken. I see that it has already cut down the number of 'wrong ROM used' submission errors. Next step is to edit DIP switch settings, especially where incorrect labels are causing confusion.

    This track was set up incorrectly.

    Right now, it shows less time being better, but it needs to be set up so more time is better as the track name says.

    The track title should read "Shuriken Dojo - Expert Mode - Most Points". The track rules could use a little clean up as well grammatically. Needs a "." and a "space" after the word "mode".

    Refreshing post.

    Could you please remove the test scores and test accounts incorrectly affecting the LIVE scoreboard. Details are listed again below. This issue is now open for over 5 months. Please provide feedback. Thanks.

    The scores are also invalid, and affect the display of the scoreboard. For example for one track, all the scores now show as 0, except the 46523 account, which has an invalid score.

    Analyst is another account affecting the LIVE scoreboard.

    Can you please remove the incorrect entries.

    Thanks

    As advised twice previously above, could you please remove the test scores and test accounts incorrectly affecting the LIVE scoreboard. Please remove all of the incorrect links of these test accounts to LIVE performances. Just hiding the Axcle account does not fix the problem. Please double check all of the affected tracks by these test accounts are OK after the corrections. Please confirm when this is done so I can double check as well.

    Thanks

    Re above post, screenshot taken today:

    Shane test account screenshot today:

    FIFA14 in process from Shane links to LIVE: PlayStation 3 - Midway Arcade Origins - Toobin' - 1,235,903 - Damien Townley

    Angry Birds Seasons links to LIVE: PlayStation 4 - Trackmania Turbo - White Series 12 - Fastest Time - 27.49 - Daniel Ocampo

    Also test account Analyst appears again:

    Mario Kart 64 links to a phoney score that affected the LIVE scoreboard, as posted by admin staff as seen in screenshot below:

    Re above post:

    Regarding testing in the LIVE system, it is very important that no test data or test comments remain in the LIVE system. For the integrity of the Twin Galaxies database and the validity of its records, please remove this data. Development testing is recommended and best practice to be done in a TEST environment, which is refreshed with LIVE data. TEST data and comments remaining in LIVE ruin the integrity and validity of the Twin Galaxies database. For example, fabrication of scores and manipulating data is subject of a court case right now involving Twin Galaxies. Leaving test data and manipulating the data in LIVE has the same affect.

    FYI @JaceHall

    Hi @admin staff,

    After receiving your message, I have checked the reported issues from my posts. All of my examples have now been corrected. The test data has been removed in these cases. The correct valid scores are now displayed. Screenshots of correct data integrity is below as test confirmation:

    The test data on the Shane account has been removed. Now OK.

    Analyst and Shane data removed from track below. Now OK.

    Mario Kart 64 and International Track & Field 2000 respectively. Tracks now OK.

    Thank you for fixing these issues. Maintaining integrity of the TG LIVE database is very important.

    I hope you have a great Christmas.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Is this the place to put in requests for inactive disputes to be reactivated?

    I asked for this dispute to be reactivated, due to new evidence, but have thus far been ignored.

    If I am putting this request in the wrong place, somebody let me know.

    The request is in the correct place. If there is a matter of urgency for something, you can feel free to tag me in the post/request with an explanation for consideration of that urgency.

    Why is this a correction when there is a genuine setting for 20K and 70K only in 0.106?

    [Edit:] 0.106 also has a 20K, 70K and every 70K.

    The correction should highlight when the MAME devs corrected the labelling as people may still wish to compete on the versions prior which state Every 40,000.

    There's no amendment notes in the rules but they do reflect your suggestion. This suggests the changes have been made already & now it's impossible to confirm from the rules what the correct original settings were for 0.106. MAME 0.106 (and numerous others) do not have this label option.

    .
    If you want to keep a record of what the equivalent settings are for Wolf MAME 106, or any other version with misleading labels, put it into the "generic info" text files. Putting confusing information like that into track rules is not useful, and far from necessary. The place for outdated DIP switch settings is in an archive. Rules are supposed to be clear and up to date.
