    I would also like these rules applied to Mame submissions. Whether they are or not won't change what I will do. It's a lot of work to do an analysis on a mame submission. A lot of steps are required and knowledge of how to do them, I don't have all the knowledge or expertise for 100% ...

    I would like for a universal rule applied to multiplayer games. The rules on many of these tracks are very generic and up for interpretation to the negative side of competition. A two player or 3 player game is in the name and should be played that way. Meaning as soon as one of the other players ...

    I got an e-mail from Google. Much like the Timeline feature which tracks your every move on GPS, the recording of audio is now optional. When you finally get to the option that you knew nothing about you'll find out it's been recording all along. Not that this behaviour was any kind of secret ...

    There are 4 ways to get video from a Raspberry Pi. HDMI, Composite, using a header, or dircectly soldering to some video out posts. I tried the HDMI route but kept failing.
