Are you pulling in people who don't have DKF accounts, like Jerky?  He's on RU.  I can pass along info to him if need be.

Everyone on the team currently has a DKF account and has access to this sub-forum, with the exception of Krogman. He doesn't seem to have an account here.  <confused> So, all people need to do is log on to DKF to access/read/discuss the IGBY stuff.

If you haven't already, I recommend downloading WolfMAME 0.175 and getting a feel for it:

https://github.com/mahlemiut/wolfmame/releases/tag/wolf175

Download the 7z zip archive on that page and unzip it into any folder to install.

Acceptable platforms for this competition are WolfMAME 0.106, WolfMAME 0.175, and Retro Uprising...however, not all the games work appropriately in 106 or RU (I know the games list).

I'll be tracking our progress in a fancy spreadsheet:

IGBY 2016 DKF Scoreboard

"DKF Top 8" tab is a breakdown of our top 8 scores on each game, color-coded to show our strongest (green) to weakest (red) games. The "Team Standings" tab is another breakdown of our points per game, plus a small comparison of all the teams. I plan to update it several times a day throughout the contest. Let me know if you want any other information. It's pretty useless this early on, but it's there for those that are interested.

We're a few hours away from the halfway point in the tourney. As of this post, Team DKF is in 2nd place behind MARP, trailing by 242 points. We have 8 submissions on each game and so far we're the only team that does. This means MARP will pull ahead even more if they fill out their scoreboard on their remaining games (MK, Pandora's, Paperboy). Worst case scenario, they could pull ahead by 508 points. That's truly worst case...they would need to get the maximum points with their remaining 5 slots. They could definitely push it over 400 though.

So, let's go good I reckon...and everything or whatever.

I'll be rampaging through the scoreboard over the next two weeks.  I've only submitted 3 scores so far, but I promise that will change in the near future.

I'm also paying a visit to Kasper tonight to make sure he is equipped with the proper MAME and all the necessary roms, so expect more participation from him as well.

We ain't out of it yet.  Let's finish strong, mates.

If we can get a few more people to submit just 5-6 games, that'd help.  I've got some time tomorrow, but then I'm out for a few days.  There's still over 2 weeks left - that's more than enough time.  I'm probably laying low on games like Pandora and Big Kong until closer to the end.  Not sandbagging, but also not going to beat someone by 10k and giving them motivation to play again right now.  We CAN do this!

XELNIA - you're the data guru.  Maybe you can fix up a table to show the games we can make the most up vs. MARP, or the ones where it might be bordering on futile.  I think it's still a little early, but when there's a week or so left, it'd be nice to have a more targeted list of games where we can more easily add points to DKF while at the same time taking points from MARP.
