    .
    This score tracker ranks players who have completed a "perfect" stage 3 of Pac Man, according to how quickly they achieved the 15,600 point clearance.
    .
    "Stage 3" refers to the maze in which the central prize, recognisable as an orange, is worth 500 points.
    .
    A "perfect" stage 3 features the following accomplishments:-
    .
    Eating all dots
    Eating all power pellets
    Eating all four ghosts, four times
    Eating the central prize, twice.
    .
    The timespan of a "perfect" stage 3 is the total number of frames the player has taken to score 15,600 points. Players must use a version of Wolf MAME which emulates Pac Man at a rate of 61 frames per second. Frame skipping is prohibited, so players must set Wolf MAME to draw every frame.
    .
    Measurement of the timespan begins with the starting frame. The starting frame is the frame in which the “READY!” disappears. The proper identity of the starting frame is the number assigned to it by Wolf MAME, revealed by pressing F11.
    .
    The player's score, as seen in the starting frame, is the initial score. Stage 3's initial score must be between 5,200 amd 30,000 (inclusive). Any other score shall result in rejection of the player's submission.
    .
    Measurement of the timespan stops at the ending frame. The ending frame is any frame in which the player's score is 15,600 points higher than the initial score. The proper identity of the ending frame is the number assigned to it by Wolf MAME, revealed by pressing F11.
    .
    The player's score, as seen in the ending frame, is the final score. Stage 3's final score must be between 20,800 and 45,600 (inclusive). Any other score shall result in rejection of the player's submission.
    .
    All frames must be counted, so the timespan is an inclusive total. Thus:-
    .
    Timespan = ending frame's number - starting frame's number + 1.
    .
    Submissions which have minor frame counting errors may still be accepted, provided that more frames than necessary were counted. Submissions with errors due to uncounted frames shall be rejected.
    .
    The following DIP switch settings are mandatory:-
    .
    Difficulty Normal
    Rack Test (Cheat) Off
    Service Mode Off.
    .
    The following DIP switch settings are recommended:-
    .
    Lives 5
    Bonus Life 10,000.

    "READY!" is seen in frame 9,861, and disappears in frame 9,862.
    Frame 9,862 is therefore the correct frame at which to start

    Frame 9,862, the starting frame, shows my score as 30,000.
    A "perfect" clearance would add 15,600 points to my score, taking it up to 45,600.
    Frame 13,985 shows my score as 45,600, so it is the correct frame on which to end.
    Therefore, the timespan of this submission is 13,985 - 9,862 + 1 = 4,124

    Anyone can help me to find this track in the database?
    It seems there are 2 game names on database (MAME):
    Pac-Man (49 records)
    Pac Man (22 records)

    Considering that now the friendly urls use the following format, and that " " is replaced by "-", both game names go to the same place:
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/pac-man/mame

    The URL rules didn't previewed this situation, so I think this is the problem.
    Any help?

    Told admin about its crappy page redirections, nearly two months ago. This was the response.

    Scoreboard is inaccessible, because of this nonsense.

    Only one score on it, anyway: my current record.

    For this submission to fulfil TG's stupid new conditions, I uploaded a recording of the INP's playback, and attached it to this comment.
