After it was brought to our attention that emulation speeds may be innacurate to real hardware, I did some testing. It turns out that specifically both Fightcade and 30th Anniversary run slightly faster. However MAME is pretty much accurate to real hardware.

You can see my comparison of this here:


(Yes I know I mis-spelt Anniversary lol)

The footage clearly shows that fightcade, while innacurate to real hardware, does match the speed of 30th Anniversary, which is also innacurate to real hardware.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome.

So.. Upon further investigation, it would seem that some of the roms you can use on fightcade/mame/real hardware do in fact have different gameplay than that of 30th Anniversary (mostly with the AI). Unfortunately this means it is unfair to pair Fightcade with 30th even though they run at the same speed.

What we have decided to do is calculate the difference in time between fightcade and mame/real hardware and penalize them accordingly. Mame/Arcade/Fightcade will be merged back into the same leaderboard. I have created a program which calculates the time difference to make this easy for us to do for each run on the leaderboard.

However due to the innacuracy of Fightcade, we will no longer be accepting any fightcade emulated runs
PLEASE USE MAME.

As of today only MAME runs will be accepted. Please be advised.
We do not require INP (as of yet), but you may provide one if you do not wish to capture the emulator window. Otherwise, the normal rules for emulators apply.
