Olympiad cancellation - Klax

Post by Crash » Fri Nov 30, 2001 12:30 pm

Unfortunately, I have decided to cancel/abandon the
Klax competition within the Olympiad after a great
deal of thought and discussion.

<p>

I recorded test versions of the games for myself
and they played back ok in Dos, Windows and MAME32,
but I guess that's usually the case as your own PC
generally plays back your own recordings...

<p>

However, it seems there are NVRAM issues (of course!)
so if a player recorded with NVRAM and didn't provide
the file, I can't play it back. Also I run without an
NVRAM folder, which for 99% of the games I thought was
the common and accepted practice.

<p>

In hindsight and after discussion with Mark Longridge
who knows a lot more about Klax playback than me, I
should have either scrapped NVRAM as a game rule,
or set the MAME version to MAME32v37b10 which apparently
is a lot more reliable.

<p>

All my fault, and apologies for messing it up :(

<p>

I'll stick to 1980-84 games from now on ...
