Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! Forum  /  Emulator Approval Request: Mesen/MesenRTA
  SpaceColonizerSpaceColonizer

Hey all! After a long period of "learning" (mostly offline), I finally did my first weekend of Individual Level runs. I didn't do Single Segment yet because I didn't even finally beat Mike Tyson for the first time until this afternoon. I would like to submit my times to the SRC leaderboard, but there's an issue...

The emulator I used is MesenRTA. Neither MesenRTA nor the vanilla version of Mesen are on your approved emulator list. Why is that? Mesen is a high accuracy emulator. There were some boards that banned Mesen a while back due to some confusion over the "Run Ahead" feature added in the last version update, but some have now reversed that ban (i.e. Ninja Gaiden). But I don't see any forum post here announcing the emulator being removed, which makes me think it was never on the list in the first place?

I'd like to request that Mesen/MesenRTA be added to the approved list. Bizhawk has a tendency to lag, and other emulators are lower accuracy.

Below are videos I made a few months ago. The first demonstrates how to detect use of the run-ahead feature (the bans were motivated by the false belief that use of run-ahead couldn't be detected.). The second is an infomercial for MesenRTA, developed by ThreeCreepio, explaining the new features that make is better from a moderation standpoint, including the removal of the Run Ahead feature.

We are taking it under consideration with the moderator team.

I like the features of the MesenRTA fork, the vanilla versions of Mesen require a bit more upfront work (like being able to frame advance videos etc.) that may make it considerably harder on the very small active moderation team.
