It's a fun way to discover games, not a high-stake tournament with Guiness Book records... I'm not sure anybody cares enough to prevent you from using FBA, or save state, or input record, or simply just infinite credits. But that would be a lot of trouble for basically nothing.
I can not believe I missed this game! :( I used to have the snes version called Kirby's Avalanche (US) Kirby's Ghost Trap (UK) I bought it because it was playable on the X-Band modem. Had a lot of fun playing people from all over the country. and while I can ..well could hold my own..now maybe not so much xD
I confirm that on Mame they're saved, and that on FBA they're not yet saved as it doesn't support high score saving for cps2 yet. Found this:
@obsidianspider Oh, I misunderstood you.
I do enjoy MAME ROW too, but I only play the games I am interested. Last two weeks, it wasn't interesting and thats why it looks as if nobody want play anymore. And thats gonna to happen again, because its totally random. In fact, MAME ROW was the reason to me to stay on this forum. I even looked up all the old selected games to see if I can find something to include in my RetroPie collection. The value is great here!
On the other side, if you need assistance or a break, that would be understandable. Maybe someone can come in to the administration part here? Selection of games every 2 weeks sounds fair too. But if the games aren't interesting, then it would be too bad. You could decide on the fly, if the week will be extended. Like say a great game like Bubble Bobble appears (like it did) and many gamers are interested in playing it for highscores. Or like in the Tetris game we had several weeks ago. There was much more potential. Then you just say this week will be extended. And if we got games nobody seems to like, then a new selection is done. What do you think?
I even made a thread for this in General forum:
Aaand don't forget the weekly analysis from GtBFilms. Its always interesting to read it.
@thelostsoul I'm using my homebuilt Heath Robinson Golden Axe controller!
However I noticed from pictures of the original cab that it actually used buttons, not a joystick.
Thanks for the comments on my score - getting through the red zone on the first two screens gains you a lot of points. And actually they are relatively easy once you get the timing.
