We played a game of MB's on MAMEHub last night and it had a upgrade to the system as soon as we started it up.  The game started up and played really well until we got over 800K.  At that time, the game went into a major slow down for like 4 seconds and then sped up real fast for 4 seconds while trying to catch up, killing off Steven's last man.  I still had all 4 of my men.   <Allen>

Install this today and get started guys!!

Port Forwarding:  It just involves getting your IP address and adding it to your router software to make the MAMEHub port open.

Mario Bros (US, Unknown Rev). Just tried it myself, about a second delay between hitting jump and the actual animation. :(

It's not going to be the same as the arcade but it's good enough.  There is also a file you can edit to make the response quicker.  I'll have to give this to you later when I'm at my home computer.

We just played a 300k game off hand, we will play some more, but I wanted to verify if we are using Hard or Medium for this emulator?

Medium as it's mame 154 or so which has the dips fixed.  This video can help as well.   :D

The lag between your actions and them actually happening in game is noticeable but I think it's manageable.  I'm amazed that it works as well as it does.  I think for practicing doubles it more than does the job.

Believe me, there have been issues with it but it does work.  We have had games where we are at 500K and nobody has lost a man and then it does something called a lag delay and more or less our game is over.  It's something where one or both of us picks up this bug where you try to go left or right or jump and it does it 2 seconds later.  No way to play that way.

Do save states work?  The reality is that for practice what you'd really want to do is just run loops at max difficulty and not really worry about the final score or the early boards.  If you ran into a game killing bug ever third loop you would still get some good practice in fpr when you could play together in person.

I thought about save states and tried it but I think it only works on one PC and not both.  You can certainly try it and let us know what happens.

The Mario Bros Online Open begins tomorrow (Friday 1/16/2015) at 6pm Pacific time/9pm Eastern time.

13 players already registered! Be sure to register if you would like to be eligible for prizes.

It is also anonymous until you log into one of the chat rooms optional on the right.

SPECIAL NOTE: If you are not familiar with settings on MAME as it pertains to Mario Bros be sure to adhere to the following:
- Mario Bros arcade, Jamma, or Mario Bros MAME (Mario Bros. (US, Unknown Rev or G)) can both be used for score submissions (must use TG settings of 3 lives, Medium settings, and a bonus life at 20,000 points).
- Since MAME .120 and .121 the dip switches for difficulty are accurate. In previous versions difficulty Medium and Hard were reversed. So in .106 when you play on Medium, you're actually playing on Hard. Therefore, if you want to play on the standard Medium Settings, make sure it is set to hard for these previous versions. If you are unclear about this at all, then please ask.

Good luck to everyone and have fun!

Corey, do you know if the default RU settings are the same as for the event? I planned to play on RU.
