    No Wolfmame. Not valid unfortunately.

    There was precedent on previous submissions on this track that was agreeable by most adjudicators (save one person if I recall). Given that changing settings was more time consuming than actually playing the game, up to five submissions were accepted on one INP -for this particular track- so long as the the submitted game was clearly noted.

    The concept of one game per INP is very logical normally speaking as it's almost always difficult or confusing for adjudicators to wade through multiple submissions. Doing so on this track makes it essentially unplayable.

    With the above said, it's also essentially a throw away track. While very fun to play and it most certainly requires skill, imo anyway it's more of a novelty than anything else.

    That is correct, and WolfMAME 0.169 was used.

    I'm assuming this must be true since I could play back the INP file using WolfMAME 0.169. It is possible to replay a non-WolfMAME submission using WolfMAME? If so, then I could be wrong here.

    Yes it is possible. Wolfmame was not used. It says in the analysis with version was used

    FWIW, I just recorded my own test game of Zookeeper in WolfMAME 0.169 and then played it back. Here's what it reported after playback completed:

    Code:
    Recorded using MAME 0.169 Dec 30 2015Total playback frames: 4346 (01:12.40)
    Average recorded speed: 99%
    Average speed: 100.00% (74 seconds)
    Please note that, although this test game was recorded using WolfMAME 0.169 (pulled directly from the GitHub repository), the above playback report names it "MAME 0.169" instead of the expected "MAME 0.169W". I have no idea why the "W" has been removed from the report in WolfMAME 0.169, but it seems that it has (it is missing from the INP file header also).

    My test game and subsequent analysis here leads me to believe that Paul's game is indeed legitimate.

    notice it says recorded with MAME 0.169
    it should say recorded with MAME[W] 0.169

    If you'll re-read my last post, you'll see that my point was that WolfMAME 0.169 is NOT including the "W" for some reason. I recorded my own test game in WolfMAME and the "W" was also missing.
