Re: _more_ms_pacman_

well, i'm trying to use a different key for ms pac attack(fast), but anyways, is this something that can be put in a poll? i'm not sure anyone else is affected...i think galaga has a fast shoot option, but that's about it.. You don't need a key for ms pac attack-fast. Ms. pac plus is the only ms pa...

yeah but in super zola you move even faster for some boards than you do in mspacman-fast. This makes control and certain moves even more difficult. Another note on letting go of the speed button: Each game at least 1 of my 4 men is lost to just running into the back of a monster. If I let go of the ...

Re: _ms_pac_man(clones)

i don't think that matters, its too easy on fast anyways, so why would allowing you to change it make it any easier? I think it matters tons. I lost most of my men from blowing a turn from moving so fast. It limits some approaches you can do on certain boards because the turns are just too difficul...

ahhh, ok. I should have checked the current scores more closely. I didn't notice that at all. Anyway holding the 2-player button works just fine....kind of a pain to hold that button down the entire game though. I'll at least rebind it to a more convenient key like left-control. I think all the "fas...

how to get mspacpls playing in fast mode?

I have had no problem playing the "fast" mode(speedup cheat dip switch "on") for mspacmat or mspacman or any of the other clones that support it. However, for some reason it doesn't work with mspacpls. No matter what I try I am always slow. I intend on submitting a score for the normal speed of mspa...

yes, I'm aware of Daphne. Even if I could play with that it wouldn't be allowed at MARP...plus I'm on a mac so can't use daphne anyway. Ok, I just tried mach3(443,974 bytes) in 0.60 and 0.56 and in both it has the slash thing through the listed in the gameset showing it's not working so I can't even...

Again, how are they playing mach3 though? I have tried it and it totally fails to even start up. At the mame.dk site mentioned, they state you actually need some gamedata off the laserdisc to play mach3. Evidently a few guys have managed to get this or something. It isn't in the ROM set though. The ...

perhaps it's the time of "day" you are trying to upload. I have found there are certain times each day it doesn't work at all. I think the host this site is on is too laggy or has lots of packet loss from busy use certain times of the day so then uploads fail. This server is on GMT I think, but conf...

why is it you can't upload? Perhaps your ISP or personal firewall blocks the port needed for sending/outgoing?

I checked at http://www.mame.dk where they list the status of each rom set etc. and they list it as nonworking because parts of the gameplay data other than the background movie are also on the laserdisc. I find the info on rom sets at that site an amazing resource. The mame romset for mach3 has jus...

mach3

How are people playing mach3? I see an uploaded score for it today. The current versions of mame can't play this game yet. I think there is some special emulator thing for laser disc games but that isn't "mame" so shouldn't be allowed as an official game for MARP points should it? Just wondering...

Those TG records for games like centipede need to be removed if they did in fact use the leeching type tricks. Once setup it takes very little skill to amass a really high score. With the arcade version I could consistently get in the 200-250k range. In MAME, I haven't played it a lot but am getting...

Can you leech in Kangaroo? Given you have a timer I didn't think so. Plus at least for me that timer counts down in a time you can usually only get around 10k or maybe abit more if you get lucky and punch a lot of gorillas. To stay on the screen punching apples and monkeys until the timer runs out i...

yeah I see that as well. I found adjusting the analog sensitivity though can help some. It is harder to aim and throw different directions without moving versus the arcade game with a joystick. I am gonna have to watch those inps to see if you guys are starting at level 1 or advancing as far up as y...

yes, the mouse works great for Food Fight cuz it's actually an analog control....as well as for driving games that use an analog steering wheel thing. One of those fancy joystick devices likely wouldn't help me score higher in Food Fight. it would help in other games though...especially if I could g...
