Puzzle Madness 2

Puzzle Madness 2, a contest that will pin some of the best puzzle players in the world in 6 games. Puzzle Madness 2 will start on March 10th and end on the 25th. This will be the first contest I ever host, since wolf decided to step away from it. Puzzle Madness 2 will have the same rules as the first Puzzle Madness, which means the following:

INPs sent that include use of macros, autofire, 2 player cooperation, altered speed, will not be considered. To be precise about recording speed, it must be between 95% and 100~101%.
All scores require an inp, video or stream
-The score you claim must be done on the first credit of your inp recording. Failure to do so will result in your score being changed to what it was for the first credit.
-To encourage good sportsmanship, no recording can be uploaded 24 hours after you recorded it. If these periods are violated, then that person's score for that game will be changed to zero.
-No Autofire
No Pausing
If using an inp file can use one of the following: latest WolfMAME (.183), WolfMAME .106, or RetroUprising (where possible)

Scoring:
will be ranking per game (which means if there are 20 players, 1st place will score 20 points, 2nd place 19 and so on)

Adjudication – We understand different people have access to different equipment - both for broadcast/recording and gameplay (e.g arcade/MAME cabinets). Every score is subject to challenge / review, regardless of what forms of evidence is supplied. Therefore, it is in every player's best interest to provide as much evidence as possible.

Re: Puzzle Madness 2

No problem ^^
I already realize there are some things that would've been done better differently, which I'll have to use next time, as I can't reverse what has been done already (like the game list being shown early)
Then again, it's the first time I'm doing something like this, there's no way I could've possibly done it flawlessly xD

Re: Puzzle Madness 2

Puzzle Madness 2 has started! Start playing and try to get those good scores in soon!

On a side note: I took the votes roughly 3 hours before the start, and ended up picking the ones that were best for the tournament, which meant Block Out over Twin Qix (i was told by multiple people twin qix wouldn't have been a good choice.) Three more people actually voted after that, but the only thing that would've changed was Amidar would've been chosen over Block Out. This will mean it'll most likely be seen in the future though!

Also, for those who didn't notice the tournament in time (i wouldn't blame you) registration will be open for a few more days. Just drop me a message saying that you'd still like to join and I'll be sending it to wes.

Re: Puzzle Madness 2

Puzzle Madness 2 is now finished! Any submissions received after this point until the submitting process is actually locked down. I will be verifying the submitted scores later today, and give the final results afterwards.
