Re: K8 - Round 2 - Puzzle Bobble 2 (pbobble2j)

I'm a dumbass, forgot to do the most important test #-o Fortunately the result is the expected. Recorded an inp without the initial save state (mamep106-vc.exe galaga -record galaga). Tried to playback with the initial save state (mamep106-vc.exe galaga -playback galaga -state 1) didn't work. It sta...

Re: K8 - Round 2 - Puzzle Bobble 2 (pbobble2j)

Okay I tested the save state thing with Galaga (which has save state support). First I made a save state after playing one short game. Then I recorded an inp loading the save state at initialization (mamep106-vc.exe galaga -record galaga -state 1). Then I tried to playback (mamep106-vc.exe galaga -p...

Re: K8 - Round 2 - Puzzle Bobble 2 (pbobble2j)

I was told PAC made the recording before the deadline but he couldn't submit earlier because he had to rush to the hospital because his son was very ill.

Considering this, I think he should be given a second chance.

For me it's ok, you can ask The Pro if he agrees.

Re: K8 - Round 2 - Puzzle Bobble 2 (pbobble2j)

Another idea... does inp recording work with a previous save state load? If it does, the tournament organizers could provide a save state every 24h and it is very unlikely an inp recorded without having previously loaded that save state would work. Of course, this would only be possible for games wi...

Re: K8 - Round 2 - Puzzle Bobble 2 (pbobble2j)

The problem with the special initials is that you are showing proof that the game was played that day at the end of the gameplay (can be faked). If somehow we could show the proof at the beginning of the gameplay, and it would affect the gameplay (enemy behaviour, random stuff, etc) then we have sol...

That would be awesome :D of course this is better than my proposal (and we can always do both things if we want)

Btw, great work on MAME and MESS Kale!

Re: K8 - Round 2 - Puzzle Bobble 2 (pbobble2j)

Haze is right, it is (and will always be) possible to cheat the 24h rule whatever we do. That's why I wouldn't bother doing anything sophisticated to prevent cheating. Something very simple like entering special initials is enough, IMO. It shouldn't bother honest players, and it should at least make...

Re: K8 - Round 2 - Puzzle Bobble 2 (pbobble2j)

I think I had proposed this in the past too... if not, then here it is: Each day announce the "code" (a three letter word) and everyone playing that day must enter that code as the initials. This should ensure a recording has been made in the last 24 hs, and can't be easily faked. Of course, it is o...
