Stinger name change.....greenspun.com : LUSENET : MARP Editors : One Thread
SLA just killed my Stinger recording...... and then I realised why when I read his description:
"The description for the recording is: 'this set is much less dificult than stinger2 and stinger2 is exactly what i remember from real arcade machines back in late 80's. since mame dev team renamed now stinger to stinger2 some scores seems easy (Lagavulin score - 132k) but they are obtained with much more difficult set (stinger2). recorded with dos version of mame37b16'."
This would appear to mean we have an issue with the older versions of Stinger and I'm not sure how we've handled this in the past - but I do intend to try playing the new Stinger version this weekend to see if I can claim back some valuable points.

Ok, after some definitive testing and rom comparisons the Mame team have definitely renamed Stinger to Stinger2 and the new Stinger is vastly easier than Stinger2.
I have moved my original Stinger recording to the Stinger2 romset and suggest that we programatically move all pre mame37b16 recordings to the Stinger2 game name if that can be done.
One wonders how many other games have been affected this way previously that we have not fixed?!
I suspect with all the mucking around that was done with Wonderboy that some of those games will be a bit screwed now as well.
