  1. Apologies and a break from TG

    03-31-2021 at 05:30 AM
    Apologies to any/all I have rubbed up the wrong way or insulted with the Spy Hunter dispute. I tend to get caught up in wanting to right wrongs and see justice done, but it is just games and scores really, it's not that important. @paul dean - I apologise for any words that insulted you, I was caught ...

    So we just had a submission rejected rather quickly once the submitter asked for everyone to select no. That's fine.But I really wanted to get a better understanding of what is considered leeching so I CAN LEARN and be a better adjudicator.Here is the reply I was about to hit send on as the submission ...

    I must have an underlying trust issue.I'm pretty new here so I have probably missed a broader conversation around this but I have a personal gripe with this on all submissions that are just screen gameplay. This includes any videos of screen gameplay where you don't either hear the persons voice/controller ...

    We apologize for the inconvenience, but this variation is no longer available for submissions. The scores within now fall under the Grandfather clause where they all will remain but no more scores will be added.

    So my new target is trying to get a second place on the Rygar M.A.M.E board (I know I'll never hit Shabaz level).I wanted to look at 2nd & 3rd place performance playback on MAME replay, but the INP files from 2005 go nowhere.https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/rygar-us-set-1/mame/points-marathon-settings/Can ...

    So 33 years ago we would die and not entirely be sure WHY it happened. Now we can all capture and playback games in slow motion, this allows us to finally analyse what is going on.This video shows collision glitches that are part of the Rygar arcade coin-op experience.https://youtu.be/GEzBCIo_sAcThere ...
