MAME ROW Rules and List Of Rounds



  • @thelostsoul
    You can post hiscores, but the punishment for not using mame2003 on this board is hanging until death...!

    Naah, I asked the same question here, you'll be allright I think :-)



  • Then I come back as an undead (zombie or vampire) :P

    If it is allowed, then the question is if some default settings are different. Also playing as second player have some differences at some games, but I don't know at which. Maybe a rule should be added to allow first player only. And what about turbo buttons? Allowed?

    Also hopefully nobody uses rewind or save states, if Mame supports it.

    By the way, Mame supports .inp files (input records). Not sure if mame 0.78 does. So for who who does want, could upload them here too as a zip file for verification maybe. But all those steps are probably too complicated for casual lets-have-just-fun highscore gaming.



  • 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.



  • @cosmo0 I agree with the "fun way to discover games" comment. I'm personally not looking for bragging rights here, but some may. If people want to upload .INP files that's fine with me. I have no trouble sleeping at night being seen as a MAME scrub. XD



  • @IanDaemon It seems you are targeting to me with scrub and bragging, because I asked for input files. My request for them was 9 month ago, when I was new to RetroPie. I misinterpreted it as some sort of competition and didn't realize it was about "fun and discovery" only. So, it is fine with me how it is now.



  • @thelostsoul No, no offence intended. I wasn't targeting anyone. I was saying that I'm fine with being at the bottom of the list. That's fine with me. I'm doing it for fun and discovery because I know I'm not great at all these games. I didn't mean to imply anything.



  • @IanDaemon Yeah sorry, I feel offended (happens too fast with me...). I take it back. Hopefully we can live in a civilized manner.



  • @thelostsoul In un-related news last night I started pulling all of my NeoGeo games out of my Arcade folder...for no reason...they worked in that folder anyway. BUT I figure "hey why not", now I have another system listed in EmulationStation. [shrug]



  • @IanDaemon If the games are using same emulator, then there is no reason why they shouldn't work. If you are interested in this topic, I can recommend you to read my thread. There is more than just copying the games, in example putting the games into console mode. And not all games for Neo Geo was officially licensed on the Neo Geo console: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/19976/why-separate-neo-geo-system-from-arcade



  • @IanDaemon And now I put them back.
