- And about the Final Round, due to the Double Elimination rule, if the player that came from the Winners Bracket win the round, this player will be the champion. If the player that came from the Losers Bracket win the round, it's necessary an extra round (7 days long, from 25 December 2011 until 31 December 2011), with a different game, to finally know the champion of the competition. Considering this extra game probably will be played after Christmas holiday, and in the final week of the year, we can consider the situation of move this extra week round to 02 January 2012 until 08 January 2011 (7 days long) only in the case that both finalists agree with this change. Considering the possibility of the extra round, I ask for the 2 finalists write here as soon as possible, if you prefer move the extra round to 02 January 2012 until 08 January 2011. If both agree, it will be changed, if the extra round happens.
PS.: There are 3 players that are able to play Round 9 in the match #117 (Battle for 3rd (~5th)), for final ranking purposes. Feel free!
Round Start: (Monday) 19 December 2011, 00:00:00 GMT (Round 9 is 6 days long) Round End: (Saturday) 24 December 2011, 23:59:59 GMT => TIME REMAINING (Link)
Allowed versions: wolf106 and wolf140 for this round!
Also, has anyone experienced the occasionnal drift in the game? No, not like 1000 miglia, that's normal, this seems to be an emulation issue. This happens a fair bit on Win7 64bit and I have never seen it happen on XP (though I've only played a handful of times on XP).
By drift I mean when going down there should be no sideways movement. Unless there's momentum from something else of course. However, I'm getting many situations where after a couple paddles I should be neutral/heading downwards and yet I am not, which is annoying for hitting gates.
Here's an example inp for wolf106 Win7 64bit, the drift starts at frame 2500 just before the stage transition and continues until 5300 frames. The splashdown seems to reset the problem. Watch the direction I head after turning downwards, instead of straight down he moves slowly to the side as well until momentum is lost. In my games if it occurs early, it will usually return regularly. Also occurs in wolf140.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year while you wait for the extra round (Extra Final, Round 10), that will decide the K9 Champion. It was confirmed to 02 January 2012 (GMT 0:00) ~ 08 January 2011 (GMT 23:59) (7 days long). I hope every K9 player is waiting for the final results. Please wait January 2 for Round 10 announcement. Happy time to everyone!
PS.: I can't playback essekappa's score on wolf106 (MAME windows is closed when entering the 2nd warp), however it playbacks properly on wolf105.
