On the wiki, pages with headers have a Contents table listing the headers. The Contents table provides links to the section headers but the links in the Contents table do not work. :(

Ya. I cant get it to work either. It's unlikely an easy fix because we didnt write the Wiki code and it will require the engineers to have to fully contemplate how it all works in order to fix it, so the priority is currently low because the bounty system and other items are being worked on at the moment.

@admin staff @TWIN GALAXIES @Jace Hall

Hello. I recently made a new track for UFC Undisputed 2010 on PlayStation 3 - "Title Mode - Heavyweight - Ladder: 8 - Beginner - Cain Velasquez [Clear Time]." I made a mistake making it - it's supposed to be an Elapsed Time, Lowest is Best track but I accidentally made it a Points Integer. Is it at all possible to change it to an Elapsed Time, Lowest is Best? If not, I'll recreate it. The track can be found at the following link.

@admin staff I cannot check my TG Profile page or check my notifications. I can visit every other page on TG, I can visit other peoples profiles, but not my own. Its been like this for at least 24 hours now.

***UPDATE*** - I no longer need help with this, Jace and Barthax loaned me a hand and helped get it worked out.

Rules, Two Player: https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=11821

Could the ROM set lines be updated as follows:

ROM set:
0.106-0.166: airduel - "Air Duel (Japan)"

A submission was accepted with an incorrect score. A new submission with the correct, higher score was also accepted around the same time. The higher submission replaced the other submission on the track leaderboard. Since the 'invalid' submission is not on the track leaderboard, I'm unable to kick-off the dispute process. Please help and fix.

On the sega genesis game 'mario andretti racing' there is a TG created track which doesnt fit the game. Its titled 'fastest completion' and has rules written for an entirely different game.
https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/mario-andretti-racing/sega-genesis-sega-mega-drive/page/2/

rules:
"Special Rules: The Timer begins when you Start a New Game and ends when you lay the final blow on Colonel Brown in the Toy Factory. You MUST complete the game or your record/attempt will be disqualified! "

this is a racing game with different tracks, there is no colonel brown or toy factory to my knowledge. it appears to me the track needs to be deleted entirely.

OK, got a fun nugget of MAME weirdness to describe. In versions prior to 0.116, the Asuka & Asuka game was described inside MAME as "Asuka & Asuka [Japan]". During the development of 0.116, the correct Japan version was dumped and the existing Asuka was renamed to "Asuka & Asuka (World)" - this is the version all the legacy INPs on the scoreboard used.

- 0.115u4: Corrado Tomaselli added clone Asuka & Asuka (Japan). Changed parent description to 'Asuka & Asuka (World)'.
- 6th June 2007: Corrado Tomaselli dumped Asuka & Asuka (Japan). Original Japan PCB.

^ All legacy versions were actually running the (World) set of ROMs which were just incorrectly identified within MAME.

The scoreboard remained "Asuka & Asuka (Japan)" and referenced the asuka ROM set (Asuka & Asuka (World)) until until 2018 sometime (exact date shown on scoreboard) when the rules on the scoreboard were changed to asukaj.

There are now two sets of Japan ROMs:

- 0.237: Brian Troha and The Dumping Union added clone Asuka & Asuka (Japan, version 1). Renamed (asukaj) to (asukaja).

... neither of which were used by the legacy INP submissions.

Could the MAME Avengers tracks be adjusted to reflect a change in MAME, please. The ROM set avengers was renamed to avengersc in 0.246:

- 0.246: Anonymous added Avengers (US, revision C) and clone Avengers (US). Correct rom labels for Avengers sets [Brian Troha]. Added info on the Avengers protection chip. Note: The protection chip underneath the sound module. Needs dumping. The protection is extensive: Palette data, calculates player movement and even a hand in the sound. The angle/movement stuff isn't 100% accurate either [simzy39]. Added NO_DUMP placeholder for MCU [hap]. Changed (US set 1) to clone 'Avengers (US, unknown revision)' and clones (US set 2) to 'Avengers (US, revision A)' and (Japan) to 'Hissatsu Buraiken (Japan, revision A)'. Renamed (avengers) to (avengersc) and (avengers2) to (avengersa).

Rules, Points [Two Player Team]: https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=11908


The ROM set is currently a single line:

ROMSet: Avengers

Could this be updated to:

ROM set:
0.106-0.245: avengers - "Avengers (US set 1)"
0.246-0.250: avengersc - "Avengers (US, unknown revision)"

My proposal for <Mario's Cement Factory G&W "Table Top"> is mixed with <Mario's Cement Factory G&W "classic">, but the "Table Top" version is not the same...
There is a refuge at the top in the "Table Top" version that is non-existent in the "Classic" version.

(And my picture of the "Table Top" replaced the one of the "Classic")

Would it be possible to correct this and separate the two?
Thank you !

I'm going to piggy-back on this one with a suggestion of my own based on how the platform/game configuration is setup in the database:

The platform is Nintendo Game & Watch and the game is Mario's Cement Factory. The track description for the previously-founded track just says "Points" which is a fine description for what I think it's intended for: A high score track using the Nintendo Game & Watch on the game Mario's Cement Factory. The assumption is that the "classic" version of the Game & Watch can simply be regarded as the standard for this platform. Here's the previously founded track:

https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/marios-cement-factory/game-watch-lcd-gaming/points/page/1

For the newly-founded track, the platform is the same Nintendo Game & Watch and the game is the same Mario's Cement factory. They appear side-by-side at the platform/game level as shown in the screenshot that Fok posted. So far so good - platform and game are correct. The track description for this newly-founded track is what needs updated to clearly indicate this is to be played on the tabletop version and that it's parallel to the "classic" points track that already exists:

Current description is "Mario's Cement Factory (Table Top) - Game A" and I think it should read "Game A - Points (Table Top Series)"

The newly-founded track is here:

https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/marios-cement-factory/game-watch-lcd-gaming/marios-cement-factory-table-top-game-a/page/1

I think these tracks both belong on the same Platform/Game configuration as they are now. The alternative would be to add a new Platform for the table top series. I don't think that's necessary or productive. You could also add a new Game so that Mario's Cement Factory and Mario's Cement Factory (Table Top) show up as two separate games on the platform. I don't know if that's good either but it's better than adding a platform.

EDIT: As for the game picture, it'll either be a picture of the classic or a picture of the table top. To have both exist at the same time would necessitate a new Platform/Game configuration (new platform or new game added to the current platform).

Got a dilemma with https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/ghost-pilots/mame/ . Roughly half of all INPs in the TG archive were played on the wrong settings. The rules state to use difficulty 4 and the game default is difficulty 3. There's a current submission which also uses the defaults. The player must change the setting during recording prior to starting to play to meet the rules and there's no hint in the rules that this is necessary.

If it was just the odd one, I'd dispute the one but as this maps more as a scoreboard split (both single and two player scores are affected) I figure I'd ask what the better play was under these circumstances.
