-Autofire is not allowed.
-All submissions must include an INP or link to a stream or video. Acceptable platforms are WolfMAME 0.183 or an original arcade cab. Video-only WolfMAME submissions will be required to show the startup of the WolfMAME program and the game settings. Please submit only one attempt per INP.
Copied old rules?

I'll look into the possibility of using the newest version once we get a better idea what games we are likely to play. I don't want infinite romset issues as verifying is going to be hard enough as is

I don't think my computer can run the newest version.  Also after 185 the programmers decided to give a middle finger to the gaming community by making it harder to look up and play games.

The system is less user friendly. I think you have to do command lines.

no, only for stuff like inp recording and inp playback. you can use the gui to load and play roms like you can in 185.

That's the thing. People obviously will be recording their games. That's now an extra step. A step that's not necessarily easy for everyone. Ease of recording is nice to have in tournaments where you are playing over 20 games, and recording hundreds of times.

It didn't change in 0.185 though? Unless you just mean anything after 0.106. I'm not sure why we're talking about 0.185 when the tournament is using 0.183?

Packages of WolfMAME still have the record.bat and playback.bat files to make things less scary. When using a command line, maybe the hardest part of the whole process is just navigating to where you have MAME stored, and I agree that sucks if you're not well-versed in command lines. Maybe I'm biased because I was using DOS back in the early 90's. But once you're there all you have to do is type "record rallyx rallyx" or whatever and you're good to go. Got another game to record for the tournament? You're already in the directory, so "record bongo bongo". Doesn't seem too difficult to me?

As for recording hundreds of times? If you're still in the command prompt and want another attempt but you already hit Esc, all you have to do is press Up on the command prompt window to repeat the last command, and then Enter. Couldn't be simpler! Way faster than using a GUI. If you want a super-fast restart in-game, press F3 to do a normal reset and kill the recording, then Shift-F3 to automatically hard reset MAME and start a new recording. I don't think that's even possible in wolf106! (seriously, some people need to stop using 0.106 already for the love of god)

My bad.  I meant 183. :)

Stop using v.106 - it takes a hex editor to look at the INPs which is such bazullshizt.

Anyone who has used v.106 up until now but is now using v.183 check out this thread at TG it?s a big help when romsets have been renamed since v.106 (to be sure you?re using the right romset)

Tip for easily navigating to the MAME directory in command line. Open the folder where the mame.exe file is, hold shift, and right-click. There will be an option for "Open powershell/command line window here".

If opening a Powershell windows start the command with ./    eg... ./record rallyx rallyx.

Also, I rebind my hard reset key and only require a double tap of this key to start a new recording. No need to even press shift-f3.
