Arkanoid Returns - extra stages

Insert coin, press button 1 3 times, and button 2 once, then press start If done correctly a jingle plays and it grants the player the possibility to play stages 51-100, possibly even harder and includes Doh at last stage. I believe all MARP inps are with normal 1-50 stages, since under normal circ...

Fantasy Zone - Time Attack version

http://replay.marpirc.net/inp/1/9/c/kal_fantzoneta_8_wolf206.zip fantzoneta is a special version of Fantasy Zone where there's no scoring system but instead, it has a speedrun-like timer (including splits for every base or boss killed etc.). I guess it can be scored just like a racing game, i.e. tre...

Re: Yolympics 2019

Don't think World Series 99 can be chosen since it's a baseball game for Naomi.
And it's marked not working for a good number of reasons (namely crashes in attract, slowpoke, untested gameplay).

Re: It's easier to call this "snpb - random"

It doesn't even matter: Apache 3 is flagged as not working in latest MAME, so these scores have no reason to exist anyway.

Re: Yolympics 2019

Current Game Nominations (check this before nominating games!)
Omega Fighter Special is broken in 0.183 gameplay-wise, basically several smaller enemies won't shoot bullets.

Re: Updating the MARP site

We may start by exporting the inp/games/players database to something modern. Don't know if using API is more convenient timing-wise than just scraping the site, prolly not since it's a trivial format to parse anyway. While doing this we can thinking about how the new site should be, UX and features...

Re: Special rule for Time Crisis

Time Crisis 1 should be scored by least time. Something among the lines of:
(1000000 x checkpoint_reached) - time_of_play_at_last_checkpoint_beaten_in_milliseconds

Re: Old ranking system

fwiw I don't think saulonpb is mass uploading for the leaderboard. Instead he's probably just abusing the search system: by adding a description in his garbage inps with "first try" it's basically "tagging" games with an arbitrary "popularity Arcade ranking" schema. Think about it: "first try" means...

Re: Archive these games -topic

Looks like somebody (PL?) archivied the TourVision sets at some point.

I honestly don't mind but can I know the exact reason behind that?
I suppose not being actual MAME romsets but software lists as per now?
