Game Guru, nice score on Flying Shark but...greenspun.com : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread
Nice score on Flying Shark (the 795,330 on 'fshark'), but you are supposed to use the default settings. The default setting for 'fshark' is 'Normal', and you used 'Easy'. You also turned off 'Allow Continue' (not that that matters).
To get the default settings, you can delete the file called 'fshark.cfg' from the 'cfg' folder of your MAME folder. If you remove all the files in that directory, all your games will be back to default settings.
It's not much fun checking on which dip switch settings were used in recordings - yours in the first I checked (I think the cheeky smiley in your game description made me suspicious, where you say "area 150 default 3 lives :-)" in response to ^Cronos^'s "why the hell are you using 5 lives in this game too Game Guru?? like BBH said, use default settings like the rest of us!". It's not fair for you to use easier settings than everybody else - so please don't do it.

I hate to suggest this, but if he continues to do this, we may have to decide on voting him ineligable to MARP. So, knock it off.

Well - the same goes for all you recordings on the flying shark clones, as well. None of then use the default settings, whereas everyone else's recordings for all the clones *do* (just in case you were thinking 'I bet everyone else uses 'easy' as well - they *don't*!) - here's the details (the settings are pretty much impossible to read, but yours aren't default)
