Could the following pair of Final Fantasy XIII tracks have their titles swapped around, please. The "Battle Duration" one was created with rules for score and the "Score" one was created with rules for battle duration.

Battle Result - Chapter 9 - PSICOM Dragoon x2, Viking [Battle Duration]: https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=242990

Battle Result - Chapter 9 - PSICOM Dragoon x2, Viking [Score]:https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=242991

Thanks. :D

When sharing a link to one's own scores list, to someone who is not a TG member, this is what it looks like:


Very generic, very impersonal. You don't know who are are looking at. There is no real context to this page.

Yeah my name is on the tab in the top left. It took me a while to notice even that. It would make sense to me to put a little more about the player on this specific page: Name (or alias), profile pic, and link back to their full profile.

Could the "Additional Information" be moved into the Rules section for the following Espgaluda track on MAME please:

I believe it is time to re-engineer the notifications. They have not been working for a few days now, just timing out. Here is an idea. Pre-populate a notifications table and key off the userid. You could even get all 3rd normal form and have a notification table, a user table, and a cross reference containing a record for every user/notification.

I can only imagine now the system tries to gather the notifications when we click on the little bell, which is super slow.

Thanks to @JJT_Defender a small typo has been spotted on the track at https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=251631 . In the title could the model of the car be changed so the SX become SC please:

Currently:

Lexus SX 430

Change to:

Lexus SC 430


Thanks. :D

The system still appears to be unstable when creating tracks with accented Latin characters and non-Latin characters.

Campaign Mode - Circuit Experience: Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps - Turn 10 (Pouhon) - Turn 15 (Paul Frère corner)

Thanks to @JJT_Defender for uncovering another typo on Gran Turismo 6 I've made. In the title for the following tracks could the "Drift Trials" be corrected to read "Dirt Trials" please:

Following on from this, I have a video of all the old Ghost Pilot INPs from the TG INP. This is a single recording, automating the full playback of each one with settings check, back-to-back. Would it be appropriate to make a thread in https://www.twingalaxies.com/forumdisplay.php/1025-VIDEO-TAPE-ARCHIVE for this video including a textual breakdown of the video or is the intention of that area to be specifically for physical media?

I'm proposing a change of the wording of rules.
On the NES game Darkwing Duck the rules state:

"Special Rules: Limited leeching is permitted at the referee's discretion. Excessive leeching will result in your score being disqualified. "

Maybe change the word 'referee's' to 'community's' , or just remove "at the referee's discretion" all together.

When i visit the page for "Street Fighter 2 The World Warrior" on the MAME platform YesAffinity sits at the topof the scoreboard with a score of 1,411,700.
When I click the score it takes me to a page with no video, that looks all wonky compared to how its supposed to look. Ive included a picture below. When I ask YesAffinity about this he says it comes up normal for him, and yet I cant see it at all.

https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/225302


I have also tried going to YesAffinity'sprofile page and clicking on the score from there but the same thing happens.

Since the website overhaul some text in dark mode is very hard to read.

Most of it is fine, but on some pages some of the text is still darkened.

Ever since the (late October 2022) changes to the "View Leaderboards" page, whenever I search for a game in a particular console category the search results now revert back to 'all consoles' rather than the console I picked.

This is particularly annoying when looking up a series of games for a particular console.

I realize I can do a search and then click the console of choice, but 70% of the time the images dont load, so I gotta refresh the page and when I do that it erases my search and console selection, making me start the whole process over.

It didnt used to be like this. Before a couple months ago I could go and click a console and then do my search and all the games I searched for that particular console would come up perfectly fine, now its a real hassle.

It seems to me an easy fix for this would be making it so one can select a console and then do a search without the search reverting back to all consoles rather the the one selected.

Found something very worrying, in one of my old submissions. There is a recording of some stupid game, which has been inserted into the evidence section. I did not put it there, so there is no way in Satan's hottest Hell it should be there. Kindly take this nonsense out of my submission. This is wrong, for so many reasons, I can't even begin ...

I believe I've come to the understanding that the form can only be used from top-down... Despite being far quicker me, the human, to drop-down the Track first and type the track in (gotta be a quick typist for this to be worth while), that just messes up the platform and game drop-down lists. It sets the platform drop-down correctly but the list of games is wrong. You then have to change platform away from the one that just got chosen and then back to the correct platform: which corrects the game drop-down and blanks out the choice made on the track drop-down. 1000s of ingrained use has to be unlearned. :(

Can my PS2 Atari Anthology "PAL" only be looked into, none are playing and i have something like 20+ submissions waiting in the queue...

The Sunsetriders arcade game was created by a Twin Galaxies referee whoever created made mistakes.

In the old Twin Galaxies referee era. Whoever the referee that made the rules, messed up in both creation of the game.

Arcade Sunset Factory Default and the Difficulty 5 / Hard, But this all wrong. by default, the creation of the game should have been corrected and not posted for Twin Galaxies members to submit to in the first place.

This is what the new Twin Galaxies rules for the arcade game Sunsetriders FACTORY DEFAULT game settings should be:

Start: 3 men

Difficulty: 4 / Medium

Bonus: 1 at 20,000 then at 200,000 points.

Here is the link: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/sunset-riders/arcade

Twin Galaxies rules Game settings Factory Default

Arcade - Sunset Riders - Factory Default - 806,390

Difficulty: 5 (Hard) -> This is wrong because this is not the correct factory default settings.

It should be Difficulty 4 / Medium it says it in the official arcade manual for Sunset Riders. Factory Default settings are on the right this is the correct factory default game settings game.

Here below is the evidence from the official game manual for Sunset Riders.

Sunset Riders Instruction Manual : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive

Start: 3 men

Bonus: 1 at 20,000 then at 200,000 points.

Note there are 8 difficulty settings for game. I ask ArcadeHry.cz many times if could please make video recording of the Sunsetriders 8 difficulty setting today Thursday February 10, 2023, for Youtube. Here below is the game of the 8 difficulty settings.

Difficulty settings of Sunset Riders (proof in the video):
1/EASIEST
2/VERY EASY
3/EASY
4/MEDIUM (factory settings)
5/MEDIUM HARD
6/HARD
7/VERY HARD
8/HARDEST
