With WolfMAME? :?
If I remember correctly it's not a matter of how much points you get in previous games, it's only a game counter. Later I'll try some experiment, but you should insert few credits (3 or 4), quickly start a game, be killed, gameover, another game, etc...., third (or fourth) game play at your best because Reptile' conditions will appear.

NO splits for these two; the courses for both games are the same with just different starting points.

Blasteriods uses warps and playing Indiana Jones in easy mode will eventually take the player through the hardest course.

I don't think there will be a lot of demand for these games, much less all the clones. There are many of them!

invmultim1a
invmultim2a
invmultim2c
invmultim3a
invmultip
invmultis1a
invmultis2a
invmultis3a
invmultit3d

invmulti is the parent so I will split only this one.

I agree with rax, mortal kombat games should have special rules that allow more games in the same inp and only consider the last game from the inp. This should be fair enough, because even though there is more games in the same inp, it is still considered only one attempt per inp, because the first games played would only have the purpose of enabling reptile.

Yeah. garegga should be played with japan reigon only, extends every 1 million. that is how the game was designed to be played. the unique mechanics of this particular title require these dip switch settings to play properly for score. I agree this should be done with no vote. leave alternate versions that do not have this region available for competition with other reigons.

Puzzli2s has solo play plus vs computer at Easy, Normal and Pro levels so maybe it could be split?

I agree, we need a puzzli2s-vs mode.
Concerning the 3 difficulties, I need to test first to see if there are enough differences to split, but usually we don't split regarding difficulty (example : pbobble serie).

PS:
no vs mode in the parent set (puzzli2) or it is a hidden stuff ?

Update : I've tried both easy, normal, pro modes.
Easy is quite easy (I've made 2M, stage 7) but I still didn't manage to finish it.
Normal is at first sight very hard, even stage 1 is hard to pass.
Pro = hell

I think there we can split in to -vse, -vsn, vsp for easy/normal/pro.
After all, it's an excellent game (more exciting to play in vs mode than stage mode) and we've done it for Puchi Carat

Ok, easy finished (around 2.5M) but I think this score will be hard to do on normal (900k for the moment) or pro (550k).
Split vse/vsn/vsp would be cool, it's up to you Pat

Thank you, Pat ; but you're wrong there :
you have to split puzzli2S, not puzzli2 which doesn't have the vs mode

as noted, puzzli 2 like many PGM games has significant playback issues.

I was able to play back the 'stage 11' replay on here, but none of the others.

I don't know if it has something to do with the RTC or something else, would be nice if somebody could get to the bottom and come up with a real fix :/
