    I'd be happy to - definitely ... but I still have to get there.

    Once I'm there, I'm down !!!

    I played about 60 games total since 1984.

    I would need "at least" another 10 attempts under my belt.

    (Kidding - I need a couple months :) )

    like i say 300k is a magic number. shooting for 300k is pretty much the same thing as shooting for marathon ability. after that its just endurance skills that apply to any marathon/game
    Monthly Marathon 1st Sat of month
    let justice be done though the heavens may fall

    Sorry Al, but your .inp desyncs when I play it back on my end, and the game ends on level 1 - the most likely cause of this is that you didn't disable NVRAM before recording, and this is one of the games that uses NVRAM. Quickest way to check if NVRAM is enabled is to go into the directory where WolfMAME is installed, and look to see if there is a folder called nvram...if you see another folder inside with the name of the ROM set (tapperb), then NVRAM is enabled:

    When you messaged me a couple of months ago for advice on how to get MAME set up, I listed some instructions for how to permanently disable NVRAM (sent it on May 28th). For anyone else reading this, the steps are as follows:

    - Open a command prompt, and change directory to the location where you have WolfMAME installed.
    - Type "mame64 -cc" and hit enter (without quotes).

    - In the MAME directory, double-click the mame.config that has been created to open it.

    - In the third section down (CORE OUTPUT DIRECTORY OPTIONS), there is a line that reads "nvram_directory nvram". Change then entry so that it reads "nvram_directory NUL".

    - Click File, Save, and close the file.

    From this point on, any .inps recorded will always have NVRAM disabled, and you won't run into this issue again.

    Please check your WolfMAME directory and confirm the above - as I expect that is the culprit, I'm unfortunately going to have to vote no on this sub...hopefully you can resubmit an even higher score after disabling the NVRAM.

    Folks, please vote NO on this submission.

    My MVRAM was not disabled.

    Future subs will be good.

    Thanks Jason, and I apologize to adjudicators.

    This is exactly why I wanted to submit test scores - before I go on a real run.

    PLEASE VOTE "NO" ON THIS ONE. IT FAILED THE INP TEST.
