I can´t playback no of the inps.

Another thing: what's the scoring system?

In the scoring page, the following appears:

Tennis games:

1. With a limit of time
Score is 100 x (nb matchs won) + 10 x (total game difference) + (point difference in last game)
Ex 1 (passsht) : 6/0 * * 1/2 30-15 = 100x3 + 10x(6+6+6-1) + 1 = 471 [NOTE : in this game, if you win the 1st match 6/0, you will skip 2nd & 3rd match which are also counted as wins by 6/0]
Ex 2 (swcourt) : 6/4 6/4 5/6 15-40 = 100x2 + 10x(2+2-1) + (-2) = 228 [NOTE : each set starts at 4/4]

But this isn´t the scoring used in the game (the score is Phil Lamat's proposed one). I think that this needs a special rule for the scoring, because you can play 1 set or 3 in each game (like super slams)

Thx

this was early in phil's school of tenis scoring, he'll proly reconsider changing this one to the newer method. Otherwise all recordings playback ok with a default nvram (we made the decision to disallowed nvram requiring recordings if recorded after 9-15-2001) so these all are still "ok" but you will need to recreate your nvram directory and swcourt.nv file to play these back.

My scoring page has not been updated since a long time ago as "special rules" link is now better ; that explains why there is a different scoring there.

Let me a little time, I've to play it again (my score sucks anyway and I don't remember how the game is)

Ok ... I've studied it tonight ;
swcourt is the jap version of sslam (I am very surprised this is not classified as clone in mame) [plus a working version : sslam crashes after 1 match]

So we have to use the same scoring for both ;
and the best to avoid a lot of 30 tie scores is this one :
100xwin + 10x(games diff) + points diff
(points diff is displayed at the end of each match)

I hope everybody will be ok ; if not, feel free to edit my score with old scoring ; if yes, thanks to any editor to watch other inputs and edit them with proper scores, it should break those ties

Not it's not a clone of Super World Court but a game which barely copied things from it.It runs on completely different hardwares...
