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.

Was just playing this game again (it's excellent!).
Nice to hear of you getting to play a game and not just tightening screws or putting out fires.
@thelostsoul Good point.
We used to have a couple of arcade machines in the common room at Uni. They swapped them around every month or so.
I remember one time they had Robocop, and people used to stand next to the enemy guy that throws hand grenades and just shoot his hand grenades over and over again while the timer counted down. They knew how many seconds they had to have left in order to complete the level before they ran out of time.
I never worked out whether you got more points per shot hand grenade than you got for remaining time left, but presumably they thought it was worth their while.
Made for a pretty boring game to watch though!
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.
