Can you make 50 in "mogura"?

How many people do you need again? That is NOT the point - I wasn't needed at all, this test game IS easy. End of the question.
Now give me back my 8 minutes of time spent for reading your message, setting the game, recording until 50 reached, playbacking, and uploading :roll:
wolf183 to be used if someone really wants to waste time to playback.


Also of course, Tank 8 is a multiplayer game only, that's one more (and clones) to be archived.

I agree, mogura is very easy (it took me less than 10 minutes) and can be archived.
Gunfight (and clone) is also a 2p game.

So here is the list to archive for Pat :
mogura
flyball / flyball1
tank8 / tank8a / tank8b / tank8c / tank8d
gunfight / gunfighto

Come on, if u can make 50 then upload your inp.
I cannot, and that means that not anybody can.

Why don't you focus in games which have really an easy hi score?

But you are an average player.

Nice. And what about the rest of slot machines and card games?

That change only took 5 minutes. The one you mention is much more complicated...

Plus I've been traveling for some time now, so it is not convenient for me. Don't worry, it's on my list.

As they will still be able to do even when the games have been archived.

There are many archived games which are not available now, you can't upload a score for them.

You can still upload recordings for archived games - the recordings just won't count for leaderboard points if you do submit recordings for archived games. This definitely helps reduce the prevalence of LBWs submitting scores for these somewhat pointless gambling style games. Just to be clear, I mean somewhat pointless from the perspective of a high score site like Marp, not from the perspective of one of Mame's main goals which is to archive all arcade games, regardless of genre, so they don't disappear into obscurity.

Cheers,
BeeJay.

You can only upload recordings for games which exist in this list ---> http://replay.marpirc.net/txt/scores.htm

As I said there are many archived games which are not available now, they were removed from that list.
Exambles:
tour4000
spacewin
ns8linesa
ngoldb
lucky8d
lucky8e
videopkr
lluck3x3
royalcrda
lluck4x1
royalcrdc
royalcrdp
dblchal
robadv2v2
sfruitbb2
royalcrdg
fb2gend2
nfb96a
sfruitbd2

Also cmpacman, unkpacg, cmpacmana and cmtetris which are skill games and they should't be archived.

Wrong. But you probably won't listen because you haven't listened previously when others have tried to tell you this before.

If I' m wrong then try youself. Can you upload an inp of a game which does not exist in that list? No you can't.

It's not wise to insist when you' re not sure for something :roll:
