    Could the MAME track for Puzzle Bobble 2 [Ver 2III Gat III30 1995/07/31] have a minor update. The track was created by @Evan04 and references the internal defaults as the basis of the track: https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/234752-M-A-M-E-Puzzle-Bobble-2-Ver-2-30-1995-07-31-Points-Puzzle-Game

    The internal default for the parameter "Vs. Rounds" is 3 not 1.

    There is a submission by @ivanstorm who is also a sponsor of the track which utilises the value of 3, not the documented 1. I suggest this is also support that the internal default value of 3 should have been documented.

    Can the entry for Asteroid Deluxe [rev 2] on MAME be updated as follows please:

    Note: this does not affect any TGSAP submission.


    - Change the game name to be Asteroids Deluxe [rev 3].

    - Revert the incorrect change to the rules on the ROM set: the correct ROM set is astdelux & always has been. Change the ROM set indicated as follows:

    ROM Set:
    0.106-0.107: astdelux - "Asteroids Deluxe (rev 2)"
    0.108-0.250: astdelux - "Asteroids Deluxe (rev 3)" (minor description change)

    Scoreboard: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/asteroids-deluxe-rev-2/mame/


    Explanation:

    The rules were written to reflect MAME 0.106. MAME 0.106 had an "Asteroids Deluxe (rev 2)" in ROM set astdelux.

    In MAME 0.107u4 this set was renamed (description only) to be "Asteroids Deluxe (rev 3)" after rev 1 was added to MAME:

    - 0.107u4: Added clone Asteroids Deluxe (rev 1). Changed parent description to 'Asteroids Deluxe (rev 3)' and clone (rev 1) to 'Asteroids Deluxe (rev 2)'. Renamed (astdelu1) to (astdelu2).
    So from MAME 0.107 the rules (as written from the perspective of 0.106) were referring to the Asteroid Deluxe rev 3 in 0.107 and beyond.


    At some point in TGSAP era, the MAME rules were then incorrectly changed because the description was followed, not the ROM set:

    20/3/2018

    Updated ROM name from AstDelux

    Rom name is

    astdelux2

    since MAME 0.194

    I have searched but have not found any indication that a change has been made in the MAME history documentation to understand why this was requested. Happy to have my eyes opened but I can confirm it didn't change around this version.

    Could the rules for Gold Bug on MAME be updated to clarify changes which have occurred in the MAME history, please.

    - 0.123u1: Stephane Humbert fixed dipswitches and inputs for all games in the CVS driver.

    Rules, Points: https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=10110

    Could the line for Bonus Life be altered. Current rule:

    Bonus: 10k Only

    Please change this to read:

    Bonus: 800K Only. (Note: for 0.123 and prior this was incorrectly displayed as the value "10K Only").



    Further information confirming DIP change:
    MAME 123 -listxml snippet for goldbug:

    <dipswitch name="Bonus Life" mask="12" port="-1">
    <dipvalue name="10k only" value="0" default="yes"/>
    <dipvalue name="20k only" value="4"/>
    <dipvalue name="30k and every 40k" value="8"/>
    <dipvalue name="40k and every 80k" value="12"/>
    </dipswitch>
    MAME 125 -listxml snippet for goldbug (0.124 crashes for me):
    <dipswitch name="Bonus Life" mask="12" port="4">
    <dipvalue name="100k only" value="12" default="yes"/>
    <dipvalue name="200k only" value="4"/>
    <dipvalue name="400k only" value="8"/>
    <dipvalue name="800k only" value="0"/>
    </dipswitch>

    - The rule is for the DIP switch value of 0.

    I wanted to add a cover for the game "Colonization Dark Forces" but... Does this game actually exist? I bet they are two different and well-known games ("Colonization" and "Dark Forces"). I wonder what David Halstead actually played 23 years ago (achieving zero points, by the way, lol). Track rules don't help. Maybe this should be removed. https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/colonization-dark-forces/pc

    Thanks to @JJT_defender for spotting a mistake in a small number of Gran Turismo 6 tracks. Thankfully, it's just a missing number. For the series of tracks called "GT Kart Championship 125" I failed to put the 125 into the track title: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/gran-turismo-6/playstation-3/?track=-%20GT%20Kart%20Championship%20- . Could you put the 125 into these tracks, please.

    Note: there is a different series which is correctly titled called "GT Kart Championship 125 Shifter". Please leave these alone if stumbled across. Thanks. :D

    Could the scoreboard entry for Espgaluda II on the MAME platform be updated with the knowledge of changes in MAME, please.

    The second track was created by Hal1973 who confirmed in the following thread with the intention to match the single player track: https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/255296-M-A-M-E-Espgaluda-II-(2005-11-14-Master-ver)-Points-Two-Player-Team-1-068-664

    1) Could the game name be changed to "Espgaluda II (2005/11/14 MASTER VER, original CV1000-B PCB)".

    2) Could the "Additional Information" of the Two Player Team version be moved into the Rules section so it appears on the submission threads.

    3) Could the ROM set indication of both tracks be updated to reflect the current knowledge:

    ROM Set:
    0.153-0.234: espgal2 - "Espgaluda II (2005/11/14 MASTER VER)"
    0.235-0.250: espgal2a - "Espgaluda II (2005/11/14 MASTER VER, original CV1000-B PCB)"
