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

honestly don't see why you accept 13 year old versions, there are so many potential expolits, bugs etc. in such versions simply using them raises suspicion, also accepting such a wide spread just means more work for anybody verifying before you even consider trying to remember all the set renames fr...

Re: Special rule for Time Crisis

you'll also want to set the minimum version for it to 0.203 (which will be released at the end of the month)

the game is broken in earlier versions, once you get to the helicopter it has a 1 pixel hitbox, breaking the gameplay at that point.

Re: Old ranking system

if it were my choice I'd just scrap the leaderboard in it's current form as it's too open to abuse by poor players who want to look good instead do it more like a competition based system, have a set of say 30 romsets each month, count scores played on those games during that month only. it would en...

Re: Old ranking system

Hello, guys. In my opinion, to avoid these junkies uploads, we can work only with the original games. The best is: We don´t have to full the site with a lot of inps. I vote YES for this. :) who decides what's worthwhile and what isn't MAMEdev don't make any attempt to claim that the parent version ...

Re: Archive these games -topic

I'd say also simply not being real arcade games. The roms are 1:1 the console versions, it's got an unlicensed timer system + forced inputs to start the game slapped on it (which isn't even properly emulated) Unlike the various NES 'super game' multigame bootlegs and the like these haven't even been...

Re: TK2012 / PP

you just date sort the folder, and you have whatever the latest you recorded is at the top.

I've done the same for plenty of other things in the past

while I still think both users should have been banned ages ago for multiple rule violations, I don't think random filenames are a rule violation.

Re: saulonpb - dkong - 3,200

and again this use of old versions, especially non-standard ones for random games is very suspicious. I continue to be amazed that MARP aren't clamping down on this, there's no legitimate reason to be using 103, let alone some random, possibly MAMEPLUS build of 103 also not actually knowing for sure...

Re: TK2012 / PP

again we're getting Megatouch recorded on 0.140 and Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga recorded on 193, Deluxe 5 on 170... to my knowledge there's no real reason to use 0.140 for Megatouch (infact the Megatouch emulation has been improved recently) again, strongly suggests this isn't one player saulonpb@TeamBrazil ...

Re: TK2012 / PP

the way he's submitting recordings using all sorts of old versions of MAME is also suspicious that's not a 'normal' way of doing things, and IMHO still strongly indicates he's sourcing replays from more than one person and/or is aware of emulation bugs leading to subtle game exploits in certain vers...

Re: TK2012 / PP

and despite the 'transfer being completed' he's still uploading scores of broken games being recorded on ancient versions of MAME for cheap 1st places.. see the Malzak2 upload.

how many chances does he need? he's pissing all over MARP and you don't seem to give a damn.

Re: MAME 0.193 Game Changes

as always this only really tells half the story (and the majority of the things listed aren't things people are going to be competing on) of note, most of the PGM2 stuff has been promoted to working. ddpdojh is a special PGM2 version of ddpdoj and has a new 'Easy' mode, the game specifically has 2 h...

Re: Archive these games -topic

there is an element of 'luck' in many video games, sometimes the challenge is dealing with that luck. I think Smash TV is often cited as a game where if you don't get the right luck then you don't stand a chance. Gambling card games etc. don't involve luck so much, it's a predetermined result. They ...

We 're talking for deck cards. Meanwhile I saw that "Baby Pac-Man" was archived, while games like "Super Duper Casino (California V3.2)" remain in their position... Well yes, Baby Pac-Man is a Pinball Hybrid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEX7TqjW3nU You can trigger all the mechanical score parts...
