The new Twin Galaxies!

I guess we can stitch together anything now to make whatever we need!


I will not be quiet about this.

    on you wall i'm just gonna say "i respectuflly disagree" in the dispute thread i'll go into much more detail on any such point

    Check the robotron dispute. Guess its okay to allow scoring that lets you get a game over multiple times and see how long you can last doing that. Why even track the score? Just track how many hours you can just be in front of a machine.

    ok since i agree with you i'll elaborate there. i just dont feel like arguing.

    but yes, the reason they allowed stitching is back then it was only about endurance. if you only care about endurance, then track endurance. yes, they hsould've trakced hours not score

    same complaint with leeching. they want you to do spirit of the game, not get score, but try to win and progress. well if you want to progress, then measure progression, speed fun. its stupid to track score on a track thats about progression. a track about progression should be sppedrun.

    and yes its stuipd to track score on a track about endurance. a track about endurance should track endurance (hours)

    I agree the old rules were stupid.

    So basically I can break the world record of this “new” track by using as many continues as I want.


    What a joke.


    i thought twin Galaxies tracked skill not credits.

    Grandfathering I hope won’t happen. We don’t needa return of psp getting a bunch of records that no one is allowed to beat

    Just think... You can create a "STITCHED RULE" track called " Eating 50 wings while playing Contra", then right after you throw up, eat another 50, then after you throw up, eat another 50. etc. ;)

    it has to be another 50 andnot the same 50. re-eating the same 50 is leeching

    There goes my master plan to take one small bite of 10 wings per day X 5 STITCHED days in a row.

    Am I the only one that thinks STITCHING is the wrong word to use here? Splicing is close, but even that is wrong. What we are discussing is a new track that allows RESTARTS.

    HOW RIDICULOUS IS IT TO TAKE AN OBVIOUS FAKE SCORE AND MOVE IT TO A TRACK THAT ALLOWS RESTARTS AND COMBINED RESULTS? I'LL TELL YOU HOW RIDICULOUS: HIGHLY!!

    Can we really take the dispute system seriously anymore? The player in question came in and said he DID NOT get that score, that he was RESTARTING and COMBINING scores because of a power outatage. THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE HIGH SCORE!!!

    I AM YELLING BECAUSE I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW STUPID THIS IS!!!!!!!!

    I am going to marathon Robotron. I'll have 75 lives in reserve. Then I will lose power and RESTART. Then I only have three lives. What do I do with my "72 other lives" that went missing? Will I simply keep playing and restarting on 3 lives, playing AT A LOWER DIFFICULTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????

    GAHGASDAJHDGFASDFASDFASDFSADFASDF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

    @#$%^

    Lets not forget that each restart puts you pack at minimum difficulty.

    that is a huge issue with the rule. the other issue is lets say you start at 3 lives. well if you came down to 1 life, then the machine failed, you get to restart back at 3.

    i dont deny the rule had issues and that its good we no longer use it. i'm just wondering if people want to throw out every marathon from the early 80s.

    I just went shopping. I filled my basket then went to the cashier. I dumped it all there and went and filled my basket again. I told her "stitch together all the prices and charge me the final total"

    She told me to go **** myself and read a dictionary.

    Just throw out the ones that were disputed, where the original submitter came and admitted the score was FAKE.

    It was disputes based on last digit you’re suggesting throwing out for stitching. It wasn’t disputed fir that reason. This secondary complaint if it holds up would have to apply fairly across the board

    This is a contradiction. You say we can stitch together anything we want, but you also say you wont be quiet. Well if we can stitch together whatever we cant we can stitch your lips shut. How gonna be loud then marc?
