    Hey Mike, normally for mame submissions the gracious forum members who do the INP analysis require that it be in a .zip archive. I'd recommend doing that and adding it as an attachment in a response to your submission thread. Take care, Pete

    “Tippy-toeing” on the original Contra was a hot issue too. Just BARELY progressing while shooting respawning enemies. It wasn’t technically “excessive leeching” because you’re not just standing there shooting (if that’s what the definition of excessive leeching is) but you’re doing just barely...

    [QUOTE=Barthax;bt27847]

    Hi Francois,


    In my opinion the thing that is bought/played (the PCB) is the [GAME] on the scoreboard. It is one unit and has many options on it. Those options should be [DESCRIPTION] - Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man, etc. are in the Description. So I would say that the following is correct:


    [Game Name] = "XXX-MULTI-PCB"

    [Description] = " Ms. Pac-Man - Normal speed, 3 lives, TGTS

    [/QUOTE]


    Hi Barthax


    The problem is, the actual game "Ms. Pac-Man on the multi-pcb is not searchable or found. Due to the Game Name in the [DESCRIPTION] field and not in the [GAMENAME] field.


    Look at the resulting screen result - when searching for ms. pac-man under "Arcade" only the two entries coming up and not MULTI-PCB at all becuase the [game] is hidden under description.






    If you look under Ms. Pac-Man Arcade the [GAMENAME] is called not "PCB' but Ms. Pac-Man





    So here I want this to be consistent. Comparing Arcade entry to MULTI-PCB.


    Currently Under Arcade Original:

    Arcade (platform) => Ms. Pac-Man (GameName) => Description (Points [Factory Speed])


    To make this the same Arcade/Multi-PCB:

    Arcade (platform) => MULTI-PCB - Ms. Pac-Man (GameName) => Description (Points [Factory Speed])


    So now the the name reflects that the MULTI-PCB contain a Ms. Pac-Man [game] and then it will show up

    on all the searches.


    With this any MULTI-PCB containing the ROM Ms. Pac-Man qualify to be used and it is not hidden.

    More and more gamers found these multi-pcb to be existant in Arcade-centres. So I want to

    make it easy to found these tracks and easy to submit.




    Also look at Namco Reunion, here Ms. Pac-Man / Galaga is the game name:



    and


    [DESCRIPTION] contains =>

    "Galaga - Points [Fast Shot Speed]"


    So therefore I do feel my analogy is valid.

    Do you think my reasoning is valid?

    Hi Barthax, now another question before I re-capture the incorrect entries.


    I notice that my and 1500points understanding of loading/creating the tracks and games

    were incorrect.


    We should not have labelled the [Game Name] as "MULTI-1-PCB", which is the actual platform.

    We should have created entries for each game prefixed with the platform.


    It should at least be loaded with the [Name of the Game] as part of the [GAMENAME] field entry

    and not as part of the [DESCRIPTION] entry, as this:

    Game One "Ms. Pac-Man, created as:

    ===============================

    [Game Name] = "XXX-MULTI-PCB Ms. Pac-Man"

    [Description] = "Normal speed, 3 lives, TGTS


    with derivative track as:

    [Game Name] = "XXX-MULTI-PCB Ms. Pac-Man"

    [Description] = "Speedup, 3 lives, TGTS


    Game Two "Galaga", created as:

    ============================

    Game Name] = "XXX-MULTI-PCB Galaga"

    [Description] = "Normal speed, 3 lives, TGTS


    with derivative track as:

    [Game Name] = "XXX-MULTI-PCB Galaga"

    [Description] = "Fast Fire, 3 lives, TGTS



    Currently XXX-MULTI-PCB is under the Arcade platform should this not be rather its own platform?


    Which can be multi-rom PCBs, some of them ICADE (MAME based) some of them clones with multiple

    roms on a JAMMA PCB. Know, both mechanisms mentioned here are just another way of executing

    a copy of the original ROM on non-original PCB. Should we then rather make this a separate platform

    first and then add all the game entries listed under the current [XXX-MULITI-PCB] labelled [GAME]

    onto the correct/alternative platform?


    Another way is "see" these MULTI-PCB as "ARcade" due to the cabinet and arcade controls and then keep keep the current XXX-MULITI-PCB and load correct entries


    as per my Ms. Pac-Man / Galaga examples and then delete the incorrect ones (TG need to assist with this major cleanup). I cannot delete entries or move them over from incorrect [GameName] To correct one.


    There are about 50 game entries created under MULTI-PCB


    I need to move entries from Incorrect to Correct.


    This mean:

    MOVE OLD ENTRY:

    [Game Name] = "XXX-MULTI-PCB"

    [Description] = " Ms. Pac-Man Normal speed, 3 lives, TGTS


    TO


    NEW ENTRY:

    [Game Name] = "XXX-MULTI-PCB Ms. Pac-Man"

    [Description] = "Normal speed, 3 lives, TGTS

    [Own Correct Rules]



    What will be the best option. OPTION 1 or OPTION 2?


    WHat will the approach be for each option because there will co-exist double entries.

    Old and new, old to be removed by TG and old entries containing submitted games move to new

    game-track.



    Must I draw up an excel spreadsheet showing each step.


    Before doing that which OPTION - "New Platform" for MULTI-PCB vs "Keep Existing - But load new entries only]"


    To create new platform TG must decide. Please advise next step @TWIN"> [MENTION=23976]Barthax[/MENTION]" [MENTION=23976]Barthax[/MENTION]

    HAN commented on blog entry Your thoughts. in Desidious

    I'm not sure I'm in the majority with this, but love to have all instances of a game comparable against each other in 1 leaderboard.

    For example, when I search "real ghostbusters" in the records page, it brings up 3 listings - when I click on one of those, it just shows those ranking. I can switch platforms, but nowhere can I rank them all compared to each other. In fact, it's pretty cumbersome - I have to click on the first listing (mame), see the mame record is about 700k, then go back one page, click on the arcade listing and see that the highest there is about 400k.


    How much better would it be if the games showed all the results in one listing, similar to speedrun.com. If I go to the page for arcade contra, I can immediately see the top placers, regardless of platform. I can sort by platform later if I want to, but I don't have to click through each one and manually see who is the best, the site does it for me:

    Ok, I see, wait you have


    Game NameAngry Birds Seasons
    DescriptionSummer Camp - 1-1



    Game NameAngry Birds Seasons
    DescriptionTrick or Treat - 1-1


    So the "Game Name" is the same. I do not see "Game Name" as an option drop down.

    So if I put in the same "game name" typed in with exact same syntax.

    "XXX-1 Multi-PCB"



    Game NameXXX-1 Multi-PCB
    Description"New Game Name Here"


    Will the TG site not see this as a duplicate but put "New Game Name Here" below

    "XXX-1 Multi-PCB"?


    How did you create "Trick or Treat - 1-1" below "Angry Birds Seasons" if "Angry Birds Seasons" already exist by the creation of the first game "Summer Camp - 1-1"?


    @TWIN"> @TG, [MENTION=34606]TWIN GALAXIES[/MENTION] :

    Can we assume TG site do have the intelligence built in not to re-create "XXX-1 Multi-PCB" but "see/match"

    the [GAME NAME] text to be the same as what is in the database and therefore automatically create the sub-entry below this?

    Hi Barthax


    Ah, ha, I will try to I understand what you mean. Lets put this in practice.


    Just now I have created a derivative track Pac-Man (Bootleg) under Pac-man high score challenge

    BUT... now I do not see any track in "new market place" nor under "community founded tracks?

    When does it move to here?


    So where do I see the track must be sponsored? which forum?

    Nowhere I do see a screen to fund /sponsor the track?


    Nowhere I do see drop-downs of two MULTI options?

    Hi Barthax

    Sorry, just a typo my original link to the track was correct. I ask this in principle how can I add new tracks below XXX-1 Multi PCB (The name is trivial, only in essence if one use the name for exact search.) Thanks for looking.


    Can you add a dummy track and cancel and see if you can add game below like snowflake and bensweeny can?


    You understand what I am asking, right?


    Track is here:

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/xxx-1-multi-pcb/arcade


    See below screenshot how the Ladybug game is created below "XXX-1-multi-pcb"

    got its own rules. I cannot do that although I am the creator of

    the "XXX-1-Multi-PCB" track. Why can they or you do this?


    I notice the game track they (snowflake and bensweeney) have created do have all the rule like the screenshot below. Allmost also a generic set of rules but the game tracks I create all of them inherit the

    parent "pac-man high score challenge" rules. How come they was able to have those

    generic rule how in the "track rules"





    Parent Track:




    Track I have created only inherit the parent rule etc, see below (Different behaviour if snowflake/bensweeney) did load/create a game?


    When I create a derivative track that section is always "non-edtable" in their case, I think the "generic rules"

    were "copied" by the TG track engine. So maybe a bug on TG side?
