    Aussie Arcade MAME challenge Round 1 rules and nominations



    Nominations are open from now until Thursday the 12th (a short nomination for the first round)
    2 games will be picked by popularity 1 from 1985 and older and 1 pre 1985

    Please post nominations below

    Round 1 playing will start At 8am Friday the 13 and end 8pm Sunday the 29nd



    RULES

    This is a casual set of competitions and is purely for FUN and not to be taken too seriously
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Game Selection:

    Games will be selected from nominations from you guys/girls in a dedicated thread.
    At this stage any era is ok but nothing that cant be run on a billy basic computer.
    Nominations for the next pair of games will run at the same time as scores are being taken for the current games.
    The aim is to avoid the main stay games like Galaga and Donkey Kong and play more obscure and odd games.
    Games with special controls EG Steering Wheels, Guns and Track Balls are ok BUT only if they can be played with a joystick
    When a game is posted I will post the ROM name and that is the version we all play.



    Layout:

    2 Games will be selected buy public nominations, 1 pre 1985 and 1 from 1985 onward, both games will run simultaneously
    Games will be posted on a Thursday night and scores will be accepted from 8am the next morning
    the games will then run for 17 days with score submissions finishing at 8pm Sunday night.
    I will aim to have the Final scores and placings posted by Monday evening.
    Don't worry, instructions on when games start and finish will be clearly posted with dates.



    What can I Play On:

    At this point any version of MAME and mutiboards so long as the dips are set to the MAME default



    "Entering":

    Everyone is welcome to play (except Steve...hes a dick and knows what he did) but if you plan on
    submitting a score please send me a PM with your user name, real name and High score Initials you
    use just so I can make a database.
    (This Information will all be kept private and only used for blackmail purposes)



    Submitting a Score:

    To submit a score you need to post a photo or screenshot showing your score, with the first line of the post being the score.
    Feel free to add a description of the setup you are using to if you like.
    Start a new post for each score you want to submit, do not edit older posts as I will not notice and that score wont be counted.
    This is a purely honesty based system so please respect the intent of these competitions.
    Submitting a score can be done from 8am Friday (the first day of the game) until 8pm Sunday (17 ish days of play).
    Please only submit scores you have gotten in the time period the games where running.



    Other Stuff:

    All games are to be played on MAME default setting
    No saves or cheats.
    No Points leaching tactics
    No Pausing or continues (1 credit only per game).
    if you need a Rom PM me and we can sort you out.
    Any Questions just ask, at the end of the day this is intended only to be a bit of fun, Please play to the intent of the rules not to the letter of them.
    Please don't take it too seriously...I'm not





    last but not least everything is subject to change at a whim.

        I like this bit
        "Please play to the intent of the rules not to the letter of them."

        So next month when dry July is over I can have a cider while playing as I like to do and when I need a quick piss I can pause the game as long as it's not giving me an advantage by doing so? Not that I can think of any games where it would.
        Anyway that should qualify as in the spirit IMHO

        Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

          Robotron should be fine but I will have to make sure its playable on a std setup.

          This is the nomination thread for round one. I dont see any reason that you cant nominate more than 1 game.

          Ummm yeah I think you might be thinking of the wrong type of "spirit"


          I will be asking a pair of other players to help out with desisions so that way anything that need to be decided or "ruled" on can be done by a vote and not just me flipping a coin.

            Needs 2 joysticks and a start button.

            Chicken Shift and Captain Tomaday would be another pair of odd games often inflicted on visitors here...

              I will check it out, The games will still need to me playable on a standard controller setup but I remember playing smash tv on a standard setup so ill look into how it plays.

              I haven't heard of Chicken Shift and Captain Tomaday. Ill look into them later today

                What's a standard setup? Jamma provides 2 joysticks, 3 buttons each so robotron is fine, or is something else considered standard?

                  Very good point, for some reason I didnt even think of the player 2 joystick
                  that being the case I dont see any reason not to play it

                  - - - Updated - - -

                  I should point of something I don't think I made very clear.

                  So far Robotron, Chicken Shift and Captain Tomaday have been nominated so you guy/girls now can vote/second one of them and/or nominate other games.

                  Hope that make sense

                    We really need to set up a subforum for this to keep it all neat and tidy.

                            Pre 85:

                            Battlezone
                            Turbo

                            I'll get back to you on post 85.

                            Chicken shift is fine as the game only needs two buttons, no joystick. It's a mind-f*ck that game but very good fun!

                            Pausing is fine with me.

                              [MENTION=5050]Jed[/MENTION] are you putting in a vote for Chicken Shift?
                              Battlezone is a great game


                              I think pausing can be left up to the players for things like a toilet stop but please remember "Please play to the intent of the rules not to the letter of them." so no pausing for 4 hours and coming back after a nap
