    Brothers and sisters here are the official game settings for BOTA OZ & NZ 2019!!

    The majority of games listed are on Twin Galaxies (Arcade) settings. For information on MAME roms please see John McNiell’s post earlier in this thread

    Things to note:
    • if using multiple 60 in 1 boards each board must be locked to an individual game
    • suggest using 60 in 1 where possible to avoid using the incorrect MAME rom
    • for Metal Slug 3, Final Fight and Blazing Star please leave on continues so scores can be read, these games often boot straight back to the home screen after losing the last life and you miss a players score, continues obviously not allowed

    Ditto - it's a fantastic game (although the sound is just awful on the 60-1)

    Just to clarify this, which is something I've spoken to Jimmy about in a private chat - there should be no more than one of each game at each venue. So if you have an original pac-man, you can use that, but you can not have another original pac-man or multiboard machine set to play pac-man. At no single time should two people at one venue be able to play the same game

    So...where's the nearest bar of choice from the venue? Any South Australian arcaders have any insight?
    There is the Midway Tavern just 2 minutes down the road.

    There is a BWS in the shopping centre but as the carpark is a dry zone, my lease could be terminated if people drinking in the carpark during the event.

    I will make some enquiries about getting a limited licence or weekend licence and extend opening times on the Sunday after the event for people to play some pinball, consoles and talk bullshit for a few hours.

    Bought 10 x 32inch TVs for this event. Will have 10 x raspberry pi’s running the 10 games. If there is any lag on any of the nominated games, then will be replaced by a pc for that game.

    So much work to do but should be worth it in the end.

    Awesome stuff Danny, going above and beyond.

    I haven't used a Pi - but for the majority of games which are golden age, I doubt lag will be an issue.

    Just a curious about the points scoring now that John Bartkiw has greateously helped out by allowing his cagtournaments website to be used for scoring.

    My understanding, and correct me if I'm wrong, is that a team can have 10 players but only the top 6 count (assuming the smallest team is 6 players). I think as is my understanding of how BOTA-USA was run, that a players score doesn't count unless they are in this case a part of the the top overall 6 points scorers for their arcade.

    E.g. If I am crap at all games, but blow away everyone else in the competition playing Metal Slug - I should get 100 points - but if I'm not within the the top 6 players at the arcade I play at, then my Metal Slug score doesn't count? Is that right?

    Just trying to understand as BOTA-USA scoring was a little different to how I first interpreted it.

    Yep and thanks for your help getting John Bartkiw on board mate

    And you are 100% correct with how the scoring will work. If you blow away the comp on one or two games, the points won't count unless your overall score puts you in the top 6 (or x) for your team.

    Hey mates

    Just a quick update and to clear up some confusion, the BOTA finals period on the Sunday will go from 10am to 6pm. Not 4pm as may have been previously communicated (my bad, hope everyone has the time right)

    4 MORE SLEEPS!!!!!
