Re: ASYLUM - PAC 3,820

Great replay PAC - loved watching your new score, and it all played back fine with -nvram_directory NUL option. I'm all for banning the leeching - but when you kill the monsters you get different powerups - so maybe leaching a few times is ok to get the different powerups - but keeping on repeatably...

Re: ASYLUM - PAC 3,820

No, PAC uploaded a 3,960 score done in 0.145 earlier today, but it required default NVRAM to playback. Thanks for the info Mahlemiut. Do you have a link to the recording? I don't know how to find the 3 letter folder names - I should know this (but it's been a long time and I've forgotten the formul...

Re: ASYLUM - PAC 3,820

Hi Mahlemiut - what 3,920 score are you talking about? Did you get the Wolf 0.106 PAC-MAN recording to playback? If so I guess playback is possible for some people on 106 - but recordings on 128 (and after) definitely seem to be more stable!

Re: ASYLUM - PAC 3,820

Thanks for confirming the wolfmame 0.128 played back ok Chad. Do you think we should have a special rule for Asylum saying Wolfmame 0.128 or later is required?

ASYLUM - PAC 3,820

The Asylum recording by PAC of score 3,820 does nt play back for me - you need to use WolfMAME0.128 or later for asylum to playback - as some corrections have been made that help playback since version 0.106. Can anyone play this recording by PAC back? Can everyone play back my recording in version ...

Re: Altered Beast set 4

In MAME 0.106 it was called altbeas4 - not altbeast4 - so maybe that's the problem?

Re: Rule 3b

Thanks Kal/Chad, But my query was why would the recording be nuked or zeroed - as rule 3b doesn't say anything about recordings being nuked - it just says that the recording cannot take first place - so why wouldn't a moderator just adjust the score to be 1 below the legitament first place score - i...

Rule 3b

Regarding the sheriff recording which can't take first place as it is not recorded in WolfMAME.... Why does PhL say that the score will be zeroed? Rule 3b just states that a non-WolfMAME recording can't take first place, so wouldn't a moderator just adjust the score to be 1 less than the #2 score in...

negative1 Crystal Castles

Thanks for your replays negative1 - it's good to finally have some decent replays for Crystal Castles that actually play back! Most of the other recordings are in older MAME versions and do not play back!

Thanks again,

Phoenix 204k bug analysed and fixed!

Hi all, Here's another excellent article by Don Hodges: http://donhodges.com/phoenix.htm He has worked out what is going wrong with the 204k bug - and it is a very interesting read. It seems that shooting 3 birds in row was never considered in the program code. So no Easter egg in the game design an...

Did Jonathan Gawne ever get access to the forum - or is he still waiting for approval?

Impressive record in Gauntlet 2 by Jonathan Gawne, 707151 and level 44: http://replay.marpirc.net/r/gaunt2 Yes - this is a great achievement - Well done Jonathan! I think this is the furthest anyone on MARP has reached. I think the secret rooms only occur every 30 levels or so - so does that mean t...

Re: The official awesome replay thread

The Pop'n'Pop score of 1,050,200 by Metrackle is a fantastic achievement. Metrackle is the first player to finish the game, and to make a good score without leeching. I have tried to finish this game in one credit many times, and failed. So congratulations to Metrackle! Pop'n'Pop is a fun puzzle gam...
