Welcome to our GameEx Hi-Score Competition !! Because we want everybody to participate in a fair Hi-Score competition there are some basic rules we would like you to follow when submitting your Hi-Score. Don't worry, it's pretty straightforward To make it even more easy we've also created a few guides: # Guide > Making sure Mame is using the correct settings # Guide > Take a snapshot of your Mame Hi-Score Screen or use Adultery's Hi-Score Snapper tool (recommended) # Extra Guide > Use a Customized Hi-Score MAP File; this MAP file is for use with GameEx which allows you to have a customized version of the ROM list displaying ONLY those games included in our competition Rules for submitting your hi-score 1) Use the correct (dip-switch) settings when playing your Mame-game Look for the Hi-Score Competition-thread of the game you want to play and read post #1 for the settings you have to use when you want to submit your hi-score. 2) Only use 1 credit per game || Continues are NOT allowed * 3) Submit a screenshot of your hi-score screen 4) Be honorable and play with no cheats or hacks 5) You're allowed to submit as many hi-scores as you like ** * When continues are not available (e.g. Donkey Kong) the use of more credits are allowed but we still prefer the use of 1 credit . This prevents us having to check each game for the availability of continues. ** In post #1 of each Hi-Score Competition thread a Hi-Score Table is shown with the top hi-score of each player. You're allowed to submit as many hi-scores as you want. Your personal best score will be shown in the Hi-Score Table. This will prevent having a 'top player' populate the entire hi-score table. In other words: you can beat your score and we will update the table showing your personal best score. # Please read this short walkthrough before submitting your hi-score: 1) Use the correct settings and play your game a. Look for the Hi-Score Competition-thread of the game you want to play b. Read post #1 for the (dip-switch) settings you have to use when you want to sumbit your hi-score c. Start the Mame-game of your choice and follow this guide (> link) to make sure Mame uses the correct dip-switch settings d. Play your game and make a screenshot of your hi-score screen * * We have also made a short guide (> link) on how to make a printscreen of your hi-score screen (thank you Hansolo !). This method prevents having a black image after pasting your printscreen. It uses Mame to capture the screenshot while it's playing a game without needing to use any extra software (e.g. Fraps) or special mobile devices. 2) Submit your hi-score Reply to the Hi-Score competition-topic of your game and add the following info: > Your score > Settings used of post #1 (please add this comment as a confirmation you have used the correct settings) > Version of Mame used (Example: Mame 147 compiled) > Screenshot of your hi-score The settings being used for each game are the default settings Twin Galaxies uses. Twin galaxies is an organization that tracks video game world records since 1981. A fair competition is created as everybody uses the same settings. If you have any questions please feel free to ask and send me a PM Have fun playing Mame and setting hi-scores ! Thank you, ~ Hi-Score Team tgts.pdf
I recently refurbished an X-Men Children of the Atom cabinet for a friend. We started picking random games to have friendly hi score competitions. Currently, we are attacking Mario Bros. I know there was the online gameplay deal setup through Gameex a little while back. I'm wondering if anyone has ever thought of having a friendly hi score competition. Maybe pick a different game every month and post pics of our hi scores. I find that this little friendly competition makes me enjoy my cabinet even more. I used to love it a ton mostly when friends were over.
