(mame records) missing input download option

  1. (mame records) missing input download option

    01-07-2012, 01:11 AM
    Hello,

    Some of the entries in the scoreboard for 1943 are missing download options for the input files. Is this just because they're so old that they've been lost? Or is it tied to how long I've been a member etc? Perhaps the owner can ask for it to not be displayed (to hide his strategy?)

    I'd really like to view the top score for 1943 to see how he got 25% more than anyone else! :)

    Cheers

    When submitting MAME scores, gamers do have the option to make their .inps private if they wish to do so. Also, depending on how old the score is, even if it is available to view it, it might have been done on an older version of MAME (something to keep in mind).

    Seems like the answer is self evident. Maybe they discovered a new tactic. I guess they do not want to broadcast their method.

    Yeah, now I know that you can hide scores that makes sense.

    Theres a hidden 100k bonus on each level that is assumed to be random (about 1 in 20). My best guess is that he's figured out how to force it to appear.

    You can always check out MARP and see the inp recording for this game over there.
