Newbie in town

Hi all. I'd heard about RU a few times in the past but finally signed up to check it out. I'm a MAME/Arcade guy from the Atlanta area who's been active off and on for years over at MARP, Twin Galaxies and Mark Alpiger's classicarcadegaming.com site.

Thanks. It's an old favorite of mine. The gameplay is very quirky though so I'm still very rusty. MAMEdev just added a new clone of it in MAME.146 which I'd been trying out and playing a bit lately and is why I led with this game. I'm dabbling with the notion of trying to beat my old PR and actually try and master the harder levels.

RU's been mentioned before on both the Twin Galaxies forums and the classicarcadegaming.forums. I may have seen references somewhere else to that I don't remember. I'd taken a brief look at it maybe a year ago but wasn't playing much at the time so never took more than a quick look. I saw another reference to the site the other day on the TG forums by Dick Moreland so I came back to take another look. Interestingly enough the interface and submission method actually reminds me a bit of two Czech sites I played at a bit a few years back (rotaxmame.cz and emux.cz).

Could it possible be that Kong is actually a Czech spy? His cover of gaming site administrator/dumpster diver/prison wine maker couldn't fool us forever.

What do you mean? How do/did those sites work? I couldn't find a way to submit scores or play games on either.

Both of those sites are High Score sites with a custom "secure" MAME/MESS Windows client at their core that automatically handles the play/score submission/playback process and is integrated to some extent with the Web interface. On both of them you have to explicitly download the custom client and install it before submit or play anything on the site. Neither of them were as "easy to use" as RU and didn't let you start playing as quickly, but they had what I see as similarities.

On the rotaxmame.cz site if you go to the Informace tab there's a download link for the Rotaxmame GUI client and some info on how to play there (it is Czech lanugage only). I think on the EMUX.cz site you can't really do anything or even read all the information on how the site works until you first register.

I haven't been on either of the Czech sites in 3-4 years so I'm not sure what they've changed in that time. The Rotaxmame guys were always very friendly and even were working on an English interface at one point but I think they eventually dropped it and are now Czech language only. The EMUX guys seemed to have some sort of bitter rivalry with the Rotaxmame guys and were not very friendly and actively discouraged participation by any foreigners.

emux.cz is the first site in cz and associates (best) czech players. we are not unfriendly to foreigners but registration is possible for players with czech language skill only (because of some special rules cz-written)

we are playing old games (mame, sega mega drive, master system, nes, snes, amiga, atari and zx spectrum), making meetings with gaming on real arcade machines, doing live weekend tournaments etc... .
competition runs in two mods: arcade (best score wins! no special rules / totally free play - rather similar as your hi-score tables) and emux (highest level reached leads - for speedrunners)

Yes, my impression was it generally had most of the better Czech players and on some games had quite respectable scores on the scoreboard.

I'll just say I didn't feel welcome there. I'm fluent in Russian, have visited Prague multiple times with work, and can read enough Czech to get by, although I'm not comfortable writing in Czech. I was allowed to join emux.cz and never had any of my scores disqualified for violation of any special rules. However shortly after I joined the "Czech language skill only" rule was added and I definitely felt like it was in response to my joining the site. It felt like an active attempt to discourage other non-Czech MARP members from joining the site as several of them did at that time at RotaxMAME.

As knt said, if you're a Czech speaking foreigner, you're welcome there. Otherwise don't try and join. Read whatever you want into that.

That said, I'm sure there are some great players and folks there, and the live get-togethers in particular sound like a lot of fun. I'm always delighted to see international participation on the primarily English language sites like RU and I'm glad to see you playing here knt. You've got some very nice scores!

Cheers,
George
