View Full Version : MGL 12 - THE DIRTY DOZEN! Nominate your games here!

And so it begins... the biggest M.A.M.E. tournment in Australia is back for it's 12th season, start warming up those forearms and flexing those wrists, cause it's time for:

MGL 12 - THE DIRTY DOZEN

12 Games for 12 weeks, where gamers can soar to incredible new personal bests, gain Aussie Arcade high scores, and take home personal glory, the like many of you may not have experienced before in your pitiful short lives... It's the MGL, where heroes are made and bested, legends created, and even injuries sometimes sustained... all in the quest to be the MGL Grand Champion.

Nominations are now being taken for MGL 12, and will run for two weeks. Each player can nominate up to 5 games. Each game may only be nominated once, I will create and update an ongoing list within this post, so it may be checked before you nominate.

For MGL12, and in the interests of variety, Wingtip and I stroked our beards and made an executive decision that games played in MGL's within the last year can't be nominated for this MGL. (ie MGL 9-11) This is the no-fly-zone list, and you can view it here. (http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthread.php/37722-MGL-12-THE-DIRTY-DOZEN%21-No-fly-Zone)

We're looking to kickoff MGL 12 by Sunday, November 28th at 7pm, if we have enough nominations to get going. Rules and format, scoring system will be exactly the same. (IE MotoGP scoring system, no midweek points.) Anyone new the the MGL, you can find stickys with the rules and how it's run in this Forum, or have a look through previous MGL's to cop a feel.

Any questions or suggestions please feel free to post.

just a few passing comments as is my want. allowing only a game to be nominated once will cause people to list their 3rd and 4th string games that no one will really want to play. moto gp/ no mid week points is solid. maybe wait till the monday the 29th to allow people to recover from the meet. am i the only one who thinks 10 yard fight is puss??? i must be playing it wrong. heres a crazy idea for mgl xiii, state of origin. teams of min two up to four. average score throughout/ambrose/mulligan/other, just putting it out there.

One interesting point about not liking a game - if there's any game that players don't think should be included for selection in the MGL cause it doesn't suit the format, either due to control method (eg spinner games/dual joystick games, or simply that it's a fighting game so naturally it just sucks ie MORTAL KOMBAT :lol) happy to put it to the vote near the end of the nominations for dragging or staying :D

Henry and Dkong I like the state of Origin format idea, maybe a mini-comp after this one with State of Origin ? Only thing is it might be hard to get an even numbers of players-per-state is all. And Tassie would most likely kick everyones arse, Ramere, Dkong, Rat, Wingtipvortex!

DKong you know Ramere can play Exciting Hour till it becomes boring hours?

I agree with getting rid of unpopular noms idea...how about this method, we all get five noms, and one UNnom.

When the list is final we get to use our UNnom, if a game gets UNnommed twice its out. (is nommed double mm?)

That way if we get 15 players that's 75 noms out of which 12 will be picked, at most we would weed out the 7 least wanted games.

I know this is more work for the Mods, but f%$k em eh? umm I mean they love it :)

Do you actually get a score in MK. I say no

henrybulldog
15th November 2010, 08:47 PM
of course you get a score in mk. based on time, injury, fatalities, flawless victories, bonus chop suey round. unnom is a capital suggestion. these new fellas just cant cruise on dkongs coat tails they need to establish their own legacy. one last time dkong spazzy in tazzy any prospective dates big boy??

5 noms and 1 un-nom, I like this idea Rat, let's do it :)

The reason I want to make games from Sunday-Sunday, instead of Monday-Monday as they have been in the past, is Sunday-Sunday gives (most) players more time on that final day to go for the gold - all day up to 7pm Sunday eve. So the start day/date aint gonna change to suit a one-off meet, as was asked about earlier in the thread.

Also you can change your noms at any time but post a new message with your update rather than edit previous so I can track.

I like the 5 nom and 1 unnominate idea but I still hope people think a little before canning a game, fair enough if you just out right hate it or dont think it will work for the mgl but at the same time a bit of variety is nice. I suck at (and for the most part dont really enjoy) maze games but I'll play em and have even found a few I do like via the mgl so the occasional post 1990 game or even a fighter :o shouldnt kill the comp.

Also like the sunday start/finish but any chance of moving it as late as is convienient for you guys? Seeing as day light savings got canned over here till 2500 AD or something, 7pm AEST is only 4pm here and with kids I dont really get to play till the evening. i know it all works out as the same time but it makes it harder for any last minute improvements.

Just my 2 cents :D

Rat
18th November 2010, 07:44 PM
Could someone PM those that have not nommed yet? I have missed the start before, not everyone keeps an eye on the MGL section waiting. Has MGL12 been advertised on other sections of the forum? and that other forum? and anywhere else.

How's this for another idea, each time an MGL finishes a mod starts a thread for the next one and everyone can subscribe to that with instant email notification. Then when it's ready to start a mod can do a post and everyone knows straight away.

Good points Taverner, and also people don't necessarily have to use their UNnom, the 2 Unnoms to get rid of a game should only eliminate really unpopular games.

Personally I think Donkey Kong2 Jumpman Returns should be included. It's new but is supported in mame, enough people here have the roms and can run it, so should be able to help others get it running.

There have been some great noms so far, and a couple of crap ones, a few that I was going to nom have been listed already which is great but it makes it hard for me to pick.

Rat's noms, a few that I picked before and didn't get up, and a couple of new ones.

1. Valtric (valtric) vertical shooter with a difference, innovative power ups and specials, ahead of it's time. I played this a couple of times in the arcades, but it was quite rare to see. I really enjoy this game, the difficulty curve is fair, but just a bit too steep for me, I wish I could progress further. Looking forward to seeing if anyone is an expert, and also to see what people who have never seen it think.

2. Mighty! Pang (mpang) A great sequel to the ground breaking and very addictive Pang.

3. Space Invaders '95 (spcinv95)

4. UniWars S (uniwars)

5. Flying Shark (World) (fshark)


Game on :)

I agree on the un-nomination thoughts... I reckon maybe a game should need to get 3+ un-noms before being dragged, that would assure only the real stinkers get voted off, and I dont see any real stinkers in the list. What do players reckon ? I kind of like the fact at the moment, half the list I've never played before, this fits well with the Dirty Dozen feel :)

After thinking about it - I reckon playing a fighter may be interesting in MGL format. It's an area of the MGL that could do with experimentation, at least ? Long as it is a score-based fighter, don't see why we shouldn't play them :) I can only see MGL history from 8-11 so I can't tell if one's been played before, any MGL Veterans know ?

Regarding start / finish time, best we can hope for is to cater to the majority of players - Can't you just put the small ones in a Box for an hour or so on a Sunday, I know I do :)

Nomination list updated in first post.

I think this was only included in the latest MAME releases and a lot of people have cabs set up with older versions of MAME ( would mean reinstalling MAME to a newer version, which I understand don't have Highscore support, or they may have multi boards), unless we determine what version it was included and it can be utilised by the majority I would suggest maybe not :unsure

A good point about the control difficulties that 6-button fighting games have. I guess this is where the un-nominations come in, people who might have troubles playing a specific game can give it the arse-vote.

Wingtip can you investigate this one being your nom ? I fall into the category of having older versions of Mame on my cab (more compatibility with the older roms) and the same is possibly true of other cab owners in the MGL ?

No worries Rat, I thought I'd put the call out now, give players this week to ponder. I'm not expecting many games to be un-nominated. I reckon this could be a really interesting MGL, there's a lot of very different games in this list, I'm looking forward to sampling them :)

Nominations will still run all this week till about Friday or Saturday.

Just a note about nominations, a new rule in this comp: Any new player who hasn't nominated a game, but joins in the tournament/submits a score, then earns the right to nominate and have their choice of games added to the list - so the final list isn't set in stone, it can be updated as we go along if we get new players coming along.

Wingtip has been organising a banner and it's looking realy cool so far, the unveiling will be very soon :)

Getting there, 2/5 this time Brad :) As Kane had spotted (and I missed :redface) Pengo is already nominated. So is Ms Pacman. And Galaxian is in the no-fly-zone list, ie it has been played in an MGL in the last year and can't be nominated again

So, 3 more for you.

There's no problem, foot! If they are happy with other people's choices then there's no need to nominate at all and just play, that's easy. The more games we have in the pool though, the better, far as I can see :)

so if you have a dedicated cab or multi board version of the nominated game, can that score be posted instead of the mame version ?

EDIT: ok answered my own question after reading the FAQs and RULES.
might be an interesting mod to rules to pit a mame game player against dedicated version/multiboard players too!

Games need at least three un-nominations before they lose their spot, given how many players we have.

If anyone wants to un-nominate anything else post soon, noms + un-noms both close this Saturday.

:cool: First Game of MGL 12 will kick off this Sunday 7PM :cool:

Me too, it's a classic in my book. These guys just don't know (want to) know how to play it :p

****s sake, 3 edits cause I can't type for crap, anyone know a retailer for a keyboard made for @$#%# sausage fingers ?

Yep used to play many a game on a cocktail cab at the local tennis club as a kid. It's not hard to play and bears little resemblance to the real game. It's one of my Top 20 in the cab at home.

Brad I used to see it mainly as a cocktail as well, what I like about it is the strategy and the fast thinking you need to do first looking at the setup of the defence, then the risks you take or not, and trying to get through all the teams, which I never was able to, i'm still trying though.

There's a two player version of the game as well, makes it quite different, I have it on my 2-P upright cab and it's a blast to play with a mate :D

Anyone who wants to nominate, change their noms, or un-nominate, today (SATURDAY) is your last day!

Hey all, looking forward to the MGL:

I'd have to vote NO to MK or SF type fighting games, for starters MK needs a powerful mame setup. Don't have a problem with trying a fighting game but for the MGL I would suggest:

King of boxer / Ring King
Exciting Hour / Mat Mania

Don't get me wrong I'll be happy to dust of my MK board & have a few games, I just don't think it suits all setups.

Just thought of my 4th NOM ' Sky Kid Deluxe' :D

I'll update my Noms post soon, thanks Jamma.

Was thinking the same about MK, have the original cab, just have to swap the JPAC to the MK board and swap the control panels over to the stored original, just a molex plug .
But what a hassle :lol

There are so many great games that are on the simple control layout so can't really see why these games should be accepted atm,

So I will un nom MK as well and Mat mania, just in case you missed it :)

No not a trackball game. Has a power meter and you hit button 1 to set the power and aim.

Welcome to the MGL!

Tiger 1943 has already been nominated, you can choose another if you like, or just leave as is.

Is Neo Geo Turf Masters Score based ? Can you confirm please, only score based games can be played in the MGL. I used to play those on the upright cabs, always loved video game golf :D but these days it's just Tiger Woods on the Wii :cool:

So looks like MK gets the arse, sorry henry, that's 3x un-noms.
10 yard fight has 2x un-nom (frak you guys :lol)
Matmania has 1x un-nom

Jatz can you nominate a specific Tetris game ? It's your nomination, so it's up to you to narrow it down to what you want.

Thanks, I can feel the tendons in my forearm twitching in anticipation of tomorrow's kickoff :D

I've played Rygar on NES not long ago and just couldnt get into it, tad hard from what I remember :redface
Black Tiger and KLAX look good. I guess ill add those two to my noms then :D

Regarding Tetris, Ill nominate the Atari version of tetris. Looks fairly good :cool:

So,
Atari Tetris
KLAX
Black Tiger
SF Alpha 2

Cheers

Thanks for that, noms added, well except....

SF Alpha 2 I dunno about.... we're back to the same old issue (ie 6-button game) that puts players off Mortal Kombat :unsure

Show of hands players - in or out for SF Alpha 2 ?

So that makes 70 nominations so far, thanks to everyone who nominated games to play, and if I've missed anyone's noms let me know.

Well, it's already nominated, and we're in Game 12/12 of MGL12.... you're about 3 months too late for this MGL ;) Feel free to nominate it for MGL 13 which will kick off probably around May/June.
