PERFECT Beta Alive! :) : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

Well, the idea to keep betas around is meeting some criticism. Here's my new proposal:

** We need to set up a study to see how compatible movies are. We might not have to change or alter nearly as many movies as we think we do, if we see how compatible they are. If anyone would be willing to help me with a study, I'll be happy to run with it.

Keeping MARP alive...

When I went to check on MARP this morning, it wasn't there.

Atila (of retrogames) tells me that his ISP has wiped his hard disk for him (nice, eh?).

I've got all the recordings uploaded up until around half way through October 29th (around 3600 of them) but that still leaves around 100 that I've lost.

I hope people have kept copies of any recordings that have been made since then, so they can be uploaded again when MARP comes back up. At the moment, I can't even log on to the retrogames server, so there's not much I can do.

I'm sorry I was so lax with the site backups - I'll get an automatic over-night backup in place, but that's not much use for the files that have just been lost.

I'll post here as and when MARP's back up.

I hope MARP is back soon........

I missing my daily fix of seeing who's beaten who's first place scores and who's shunted me further still down the leaderboard.

I sure hope you find a place to host MARP again soon !!!!!

it's back - after a fashion

I've uploaded what I could of the MARP site back to the old address at - I can't get the scripts running at the moment due to some kind of problem with the python installation on the server, but at least the nice people letting me use their server have given me an advert to put on my page. I don't have to pay for it, or anything!

Maybe it's working now.

I think I might have just fixed the page.

It will probably have a record of all the recent scores, but the recordings themselves will be missing. Please don't try to re-upload the recordings, 'cos the script won't let you - pretty soon I'll delete the scores for the recordings I've lost, and then you'll be able to re-upload them if you kept a copy for yourself, but at the moment I'm too pissed up to work out how to do it.

Could everyone please stop getting shot?

You should be able to upload NEW recordings now, though.

Please email me at the usual address if you have any problems, and I'll sort them when I get back to work on Monday.
