    ROMset: dkongLives: 3Bonus life: 7000Note: Using older WolfMAME versions may result in slower overall times. Since TG technically allows all WolfMAME versions for competition, there will be no restriction hereSpecial rules:1) Timer starts with the first movement of Jumpman at the beginning of the game.2) The timer stops the instant the last rivet is pulled on 4-5. This is considered to be when Jumpman passes over the rivet and the rivet disappears3) MUST be obtained on your first life. Any death will result in immediate disqualification4) Can be part of any game, provided it adheres to the rules of this particular track5) Only a 1 Player game using 1UP will be acceptedAccurate timings can be determined using frame advance while playing back the INP, and the refresh rate of the specific MAME version that was used.Definition of a "start": Reaching Level 5 WITHOUT the loss of a life. As to maintain consistency, this track is a first-life only track.

    Awaiting MAME INP analyst before voting yes

    Needing a Twin Galaxies member to do a Frame-by-Frame analyst with milliseconds included which will be more accurate and precise.

    This is only a Manual time calculation without milliseconds.

    I wish the output of the analysis could be displayed when the submission is submitted. That would be extremely helpful and time saving for adjudicators as well as submissions.

    @Jace Hall @admin staff possible?

    It's largely useless for modern versions if you are familiar with using WolfMAME from the command-line. Add the parameter "-inpview 1" to view the player 1's input. Pause the game and then hold the DEL key: the DIP switches will be shown as-at that point in the playback. Let the playback complete and then exit WolfMAME (this bit is the same for mainstream MAME): the summary information is output to the cmd prompt.

    The other body of information was the collected information over-time for understanding how to interpret rules vs. the MAME developments: ROM sets get changed and renamed. Documentation over at https://www.twingalaxies.com/wiki_in...y-for-TG-rules and I've added the (outdated) set of information I have as pages to that book.

    If a submission is from a significantly older version of MAME then there's a good discussion at https://www.twingalaxies.com/benswee...n-a-hex-editor .
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...

    Possible but we have a list of larger items that we have to prioritize over something like this. Perhaps one day!
