Again, it's just a request. I'm okay with the series not being moderated, but I would prefer for it to have someone, and that's why I asked.

Series mod is usually meaningless, since they are powerless to help in many cases.

Things you ¤can¤ do include, uh... adding new games, which is better done through the site's global form. And modifying the image for the series.

Series mods don't inherit mod in games, but will still get requests and whinging from people who can't get along, or requests to verify runs that you actually can't (since you don't have mod).

Requests to be added as mods are even more fun.

You don't want to have your name set as series mod for Disney. Trust me.

You can get a good time (top 10) without tree skip, and a glitchless time is really just a bad Any% time right now, so there's not much point.

- As a runner

Selection process is way too long. I'd recommend something similar to SGDQ 16, with ~2 weeks for open submissions, followed by no more than a month until first draft schedule. It'd help with some of the expectations and multiple cuts just feels useless.

Disclaimer: I know this next comment won't change anything. I'm still going to say it.
I loathe headsets. They're too tight. They're too bulky, they're too obnoxious. I wear glasses and have large ears, and they never fit right. Having a mic sticking out in my peripherals sucks when I'm trying to play a game in an unfamiliar setting.
This was exacerbated by having game-audio only through the headset for a race, leading to not hearing tech, hosting, or my opponent, which was fixed later with 1 touch of a specific button on the tech rack. (I "fixed" it by not wearing the right earpiece).

- As an attendee

People are slobs (so am I sometimes) and Tompa is a saint for helping clear out cans, snack bags, etc when they built up too much. Other than that, the venue always felt reasonably clean and didn't smell terrible. Ticketing, check-in, etc was fine. Having the kiosk for drinks and snacks at the info desk was amazing. The actual arena one with different foodstuffs was something I didn't use for much except for coffee and soda, so I don't really have a strong opinion on it.

The layout of the main hall was good enough, though most of the TVs seemed to be playing musical tables while the attendees were playing musical chairs. (Trying to find/rent more chairs strongly recommended). Stream area was comfortable.

- Tech volunteering

I won't do it again unless there's a clear instructional element to it and at least a little time to learn/practice before having to do it live. And by "won't do it again" I mean if I were to sign up and then the educational section didn't happen, I'd inform people immediately that I wouldn't be doing those shifts. Obviously there were some issues this time that made it a bit time constrained. Scheduling was very fair though.

I can't emphasize enough how good it would be to have most of the older consoles in the number required tested and ready to go with the runners providing cart and controller. No guessing about cable quality, sync, etc. Yes, there will be oddballs, but those should be the exceptions. Then, as a tech volunteer, you can grab the NES/Famicoms, cart adapters, cables, and power and go set up the run.

Aspect ratio and number of screens to be captured (for co-op runs) needs to be part of the submission so we know ahead of time and can prepare for the next setup.

For the runners that showed up in plenty of time for their runs, thank you. It made things easier to cope with as a volunteer who was admittedly mostly stumbling through it all.

- Accommodation

I didn't have any problems with Scandic, but hindsight makes me wish I had booked at Royal Corner and rented a bike, as there were a few more food and drink options downtown that I preferred over eating at American fast food chains (just feels terrible to do in Europe when you're an American).

Verified on console. This took so many attempts though.

"Error

Only full mods can delete games over 2 weeks old. Please contact one if you want to have this game deleted."

I don't want to be mod of this game. I eventually want an admin to take or transfer ownership of "Disney" (after the two mickey series are created, hopefully).

I was willing to put up with it while I could actually mediate for people but I simply don't have the time to babysit children anymore.

Please add pagination controls to the bottom of game and stream lists.

Current UX:
Scroll down, reach the end, scroll up, hit next

It's agonizing

I've taken care of the Aladdin: Nasira's Revenge situation.

I plan on removing myself from mod for that (and many other games with the new series mod changes) but I'll leave myself on it to make sure there's a neutral party for the time being.

You're almost there.

Check out this thread for what I had in mind. You can make the variables subcategories and have easier navigation ( don't need the drop-down for more important differences)

You can make any variable a sub-category now. So, you could have:

Max, Goofy, Co-op

Variable: Difficulty [World, J-1, J-2, J-3]

So, for example if you click the Max category, the "sub-categories" (which are really values of difficulty within the Max category) would show up under Max, then you click the one you're interested in.

Just an idea since clutter seems to be a driving force

Thread: sub-categories

Started by: btrimbtrim

I've changed this game to use subcategories instead of three separate categories for hard, normal, and easy.

If people hate this for some reason let me know and I can change it all back.

This seemed like an equivalent structure for this leaderboard and I wanted to try it.

I'm looking forward to these changes.

Is there potential in this new system for sub-series? Or is it just multiple series?

For example, I don't really mind helping with some of the "administration" of all "Disney" games, but it'd be nice to have a bit more granularity to the series that exist within that huge umbrella.

Thread: Double Dragon and Japanese Hardware

Started by: btrimbtrim

Some participants noticed some irregularities with Double Dragon.

Here is what I've determined from testing the ROM on Japanese and US hardware as well as Fusion.

The ROM is a world ROM, and running it on a console in Japanese mode changes the number of continues to 2 instead of infinite. A visual change is that the 2p "Press Start" prompt is now permanently set to "GAME OVER."

We are not changing the game or goal at this time, though you'll want to make sure your emulator is set to USA for all games, and if you can, play on an export console at 60Hz (Genesis or 60Hz-modded SMS or MD)
