A favor to ask of MARPers

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

The new banned techniques page is almost finished, meaning that I will finally post the vote for the new questionable techniques to be voted upon THIS WEEK! (I'm serious this time) However, before I do this, I would like to ask all players to read Angry's old page (available from the pulldown menu) and submit illegal recording techniques that are listed there, so that we have sample .inps of the banned recordings. That way when the new page goes up, people can watch what they're not suposed to do instead of having me tell them.

This applies as well to any new techniques upon which a ban is requested ( I still have the TNZS .inp in my e-mail, so that one need not be rerecorded. Just e-mail the .inp files to me in .zip format, and write a short description of why the recording is or should be illegal.

Thanx, Q.T.Quazar

I'll send you the one for galaga (if there is a banned technique for the no firing bug) You should post here if you get recordings so people don't have to submit one if they know someone else has already submited one. (actually i think there is a galaga bug inp somewhere on marp but i can't find it at the moment.)

Some recordings of tips and special technics can be found clicking "index" on main page and then "weird things" . But it's true it needs a refreshing (some are made with mame30 - very boring to watch an input as game were not zipped in this version ... could someone make another one on commando with a more recent final version ?)

To put my 2 cents , I sent you an input on gng showing the "infinite time" trick (shorter than the 6 million score I had submitted by the past) and different from the "extra life leeching" usually used on level 3

1. Not all of the techniques are easy to show. e.g. powerup cheat in Bubble Bobble - all that you will see is Powerup! appear in the lower corner of the title screen. You will have to explain these sort of cheats I think even if you have a sample inp.

2. Most of the banned techniques I've seen have been from other peoples recordings here on MARP. Are we allowed to submit these recordings. I ask since they really aren't mine to give but it would be a pain to recreate them.

3. Even if you can't get a lot of sample inps in the next few days please don't stop from putting up the banned techniques page and vote. In time we will get inps for all of them I'm sure. I haven't the time over the next couple of weeks to submit any unfortunately. I hope others aren't as strapped for time as I am.
