    Rules
    1 Life Only [Game-A]
    Special Rules: Not that there are any lives in the game, but you get only 1 attempt per game! This is a 1 Player Game ONLY! You're free to not only choose music or silence, but you're allowed to choose what starting level you desire. [Please note, you may also access levels 10-19 by holding the A Button while the selection is over 0-9 respectively, and hitting the Startbutton. Allowing the demo to scroll through and hitting Start as a line or Tetris is completed, selecting your level and causing the screen to flash when you start, enabling yourself to gain a free line or lines and therefore free points is banned! Your scoring attempt ends when the blocks reach the top of the screen and the Game Over message pops up. If the score rolls over, it will continue to be calculated. If the game stops at 999,999 and doesn't roll over, play on for a few seconds to clearly show this and you may then end the game. Pausing for ANY reason = Disqualification!
    Please note that although this variation is for most lines, you may submit it as a Points attempt as well.

    [Please note that you may also submit your record via the Super Mario Bros./Tetris/Nintendo World Cup Combo Cartridges]

    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    Submitted footage strongly suggests that the game being played is on an NTSC cartridge, running at slower than normal speed, due to a PAL console's being used.

    Here is an showcase of the difference in sound between a PAL Cart running in a PAL NES and an NTSC cart running in a PAL NES: (at 5 seconds in i misspeak and say "...difference between PAL NES and NTSC NES running in...". It is supposed to be "...difference between PAL Tetris and NTSC Tetris running in...")

    1. The sound of Genno's footage is more in line with an NTSC Cart running in a PAL NES than it is with a PAL Cart running in a PAL NES.
    2. The Speed on level 19 is not as fast as it should be if it were a PAL Cart. it is more in line again with a NTSC Cart.
    Here are some external videos showing the sound of Track 3 and a speed comparison of level 19 on both the NTSC and PAL versions

    NES Tetris PAL vs NTSC comparison on Level 19

    Audio in the video is very low, but based on the speed at what the pieces fall at level 19, I agree that an NTSC cartridge was used for this 191 lines score.

    Valid dispute, voting Yes!

    So, am I right to assume that the same cartridge was used for the points score and that one needs to be disputed as well?

    Yes that is correct, the music and side to side movements of DAS is way slowed down from what they should be.
