the way he's submitting recordings using all sorts of old versions of MAME is also suspicious

that's not a 'normal' way of doing things, and IMHO still strongly indicates he's sourcing replays from more than one person and/or is aware of emulation bugs leading to subtle game exploits in certain versions.

his account raises every possible red flag there could be...

TK tells me that he used 0.78 for pacgal-fast because the fast feature in not in later versions (I guess that's why it's archived?). Not that that explains any others, however.

Hi Barry

On the pacgal-fast submission, I have played that one back successfully. I also have tested the DIP settings on wolfmame 0.78 to 0.101, and 0.106 and 0.193.

It appears that the DIP switch settings to allow for "Cheat speedup" on the menu is only available from 0.78 till 0.101. On 0.106 till the latest it is not available. I still have to test his "mspacman clone" submission which was played on a most recent version of wolfmame.

I have played back some of his other mspac* clone submissions and they all are fine. I think those "mspac* / pac* clone submission are legit but all the other games where TK2012 and PP are the same user are not.

I would have banned them all a year ago .. I really do not know why it's so hard of a thing to do?

TG banning not a casual player, but one of its former referees, for cheating.....why can't MARP do the same with its cheaters...?!? :roll:

Maybe when Zwaxy writes a "Ban this user" button. I think it would take altering the scripts to effectively ban someone.

Zero-ing all his/their score won't do the job quite fine as well...?!? :roll:

again we're getting Megatouch recorded on 0.140 and Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga recorded on 193, Deluxe 5 on 170...

to my knowledge there's no real reason to use 0.140 for Megatouch (infact the Megatouch emulation has been improved recently)

again, strongly suggests this isn't one player

saulonpb@TeamBrazil should get the same treatement too IMHO because again you've got scores all over the place from different versions, I still don't think that is the account of one person.

these problematic 'people' always follow the same patterns, random MAME versions, spamming the leaderboard for cheap 1st places, playing broken games..

Zero-ing all these scores doesn't give the absolute certainty that the offending player won't just correct his scores back to whatever it's their base score points.

ETA: but I'm pretty sure this kind of conduct should be corrected ffs :? :

Also if anybody has any guess about why all his inps have random characters (presumably a file copied and pasted from somewhere else) be my guest.

why am i seeing both accounts again? I thought the point of moving all the scores so there would only be 1 account?

Because except me, you, and a very few other regular/historical MARPers, nobody here, expecially among the staff, seems to give a f**k anymore about MARP credibility....while everywhere else people work hard to expose cheaters, here they're tolerated, and therefore, encouraged....

It's so damn simple....rule 1.d) (At MARP, only ONE account is allowed per player; if two accounts have the same email or IP address, or anything proves to be created by the same player, only the first account will be kept.) even foresees what to do in case of infringment...so no doubts....no interpretations....just apply it....but nobody seems to have enough courage to do his job, and take the right decisions....
