You submit it using the score submission form (specify the bounty under the additional details box).

Why not simply use the bonus timer to determine the fastest completion of a Level 05+ rivet stage?

Hey Eric,

There appears to be a formula error within the scoreboard.

It originates in the "points" column (Event #2) of Mick Winzeler's record.

The error is causing a ripple effect throughout the worksheet.

Eric may do that and then compare if it comes down to seconds. I'm not aware of a reason that wouldn't work.

Reminder: please make sure your highlighted submissions are available on twitch for my review the week after the event has ended. Also if you are using mame, save the inps just in case.

I am almost done reviewing all submissions from event #1, so far so good. Nobody has submitted an invalid score  ;) ;) ;)

*Top 3 Winners*
1st: $30: Jeff Wolfe​
2nd: $20: Adam Mon
3rd: $15: Robbie Lakeman​

*Mystery Bounty Winners (random selection)*

Congrats to all the winners! All prizes will be paid out at the end of the contest after event #4 is complete.

Thanks to all who have played and good luck in the rest of the events!!!

NOTE: I had to remove Timothy Sczerby's score since I could not verify it (the link he provided was invalid). If somebody can get a hold of him, please let him know (I emailed him but received no response). If he submits me a valid link I will review it and add the score back (but he cannot win any prize money).

Highly unlikely.

Tim's oldest archived broadcast is from this afternoon.  I suspect the "Automatically archive my broadcasts" option was disabled in his Twitch profile (and perhaps it still is).  As a result, no videos were saved from Event #1.

Yeah I figured as much, but just in case he had something else saved for his game.

You know he's gonna hold not getting this money and recognition against you for years, right?  :D  :P

Tim didn't even highlight the new personal best score he got a couple months back.  FailFish

Luckily the video was saved by others.

Honestly, if this were to be put to a vote, I would vote for his no-hammer score to be accepted onto the scoreboard. No prize seems like a fair penalty, but the game did have plenty of witnesses. Without the points, it really torpedoes any chance Tim has of winning the tourney, and I like to see him do well!

But I also understand why accepting the score based on "witness testimony" might not be the best idea for the integrity of the tournament. (I'm pretty loosey-goosey about rules which is why I don't run forums or tournaments.  :P)

Yeah, one of these days I'll have to rebroadcast that game on our DKF Twitch channel.  Currently, his record on the main HSL contains a broken link in the Source field.

I also downloaded his 389,100 game (Event #2) from yesterday, in case that video also disappears before next week.
