Dunno about the system-I do think NEO Geo is a bit of an anomaly, and I'm actually inclined to think the system is as valid for arcade scores as anything would be, but I do admit to not knowing enough about it to be firm in my opinion.
The cart itself tho, is almost surely fine, as it was a cart-based arcade system in the first place-the flashcart is no different than what we are allowed to use on consoles-I DO understand where owners of the arcade cabs could hope for exclusivity, but technology is technology, things are just more accessible than they used to be.
i dont know if the particular cart is an issue, but its surely not an auto reject as flash carts are typically allowed here unless theres a reason not to. Also this is pretty much like a super gun which has been used before. Originally arcade was expersnive and home version cheap, but now arcade is cheap and home expensive. So theres plenty interest in consolizing the arcade board and buying the cheaper arcade carts. i mean with neo geo nothing is common so rare as this is, its common within the realm of neo geo. its also worth noting neo geo boards are in case anyway, so even for an arcade you're not gonna see the board, you're just gonna see something that looks like a weird toaster
In my opinion the only score besides yours should also be disqualified too, as it's not done on original hardware.
So, that was a huge mistake it got approved...
One can own this game on cartridge, and it should have been done on such original cartridge/hardware.
In order to dispute a game, one should have at least 4.000 credits, and that I don't have yet..
Sorry that technology advanced to the point where 1 person can put a game on a sd card and save space instead of having hundred of cartridges that take up space.
I've proven the game was played on authentic arcade hardware...Vote no or whatever cause i'm honestly done explaining this to someone who want's to come off as a know-it-all gatekeeper
That should be the cartridge used in this category. (or the Japanese one)
