    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    The last of my old PAL 2600 scores that needs to go. Once again for the following 2 reasons.

    1. The game wasn't played on the correct settings. All I had to go on was the original book of records which said use the easiest settings. I did include a completed submission form from page 715 of the book that stated the settings I used.


    2. This was part of a bulk lot of tapes sent to Walter and forwarded to the Atari ref at the time in mid 1999. He entered the scores onto the Snipercade database at the time then claimed he couldn't play the tapes back due to needing a PAL vcr. We agreed to remove the scores but they reappeared when his database was merged into the main TG database.

    Game 17 is the easiest setting on this game. The original book of records said for console games use the easiest settings. I should've dealt with this and the other 2 that I've already successfully disputed years ago during the NTSC/PAL/EMU split but I didn't. As corrupt as the then Atari ref turned out to be I doubt he would've accepted this back then if he'd been able to view the tape
    It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.
