We have implemented some changes to the rules for Arcade Speedruns done on emulator for all of the classic Mortal Kombat games.
As of the 8th of January, 2019, the following changes are in effect:
You are no longer required to stream live for a top time placement. However we are still requiring the submission of an INP recording of your run recorded on WolfMame.
Top qualifying times are now governed by a time threshold instead of placing 1st/2nd/3rd. You are only required to provide a WolfMame INP if you score below a certain time depending on the game:
Mortal Kombat: 7:00 Mortal Kombat II: 7:00 Mortal Kombat 3: 6:00 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3: 6:00
For example, if you complete a Mortal Kombat run on arcade in a time of 6:59, you must provide a WolfMame INP to have your run verified. If you have a time of 7:00 you do not have to provide an INP.
We feel these changes are fair and hope to include a wider audience of potential runners. Any feedback or suggestions are welcome.
You can find a guide on how to produce a WolfMame INP recording here: https://www.speedrun.com/mk1/guide/euoqg
If you are still having any trouble getting a WolfMame INP recording to work, please message me or another moderator on Discord and we will do our best to help you get setup.
