I am a member of Atari Age, but I am also the PS1/PS2 referee at Twin Galaxies. We are working on a project to separate the NTSC, PAL, and EMU scores as they are currently co-mingled. We are currently working on the Atari 2600 scores.

We are looking for gamer confirmation of the method used to achieve the scores, but some of the gamers are no longer active at Twin Galaxies. However, some of them are active here at Atari Age. We just need for the gamers to confirm which method (NTSC/PAL/EMU) was used for each of their scores.

Here is the full list of the gamers whose scores remain unconfirmed as of 01/19/2007...

78 Mark Feldt

This is what everyone needs to either confirm or tell us what to correct. Please either respond in the Twin Galaxies forum, here in this thread, or send an email to K_Flewin@Yahoo.Ca and let him know the information so he may properly incorporate it into the running tally correctly.

We are working on a project to separate the NTSC, PAL, and EMU scores as they are currently co-mingled. We are currently working on the Atari 2600 scores.


Finally! :)

PAL, real thing, for me. Manuel Rotschkar in the list.

Heh, I just checked, for PAL my Air Raiders world record is still standing, as it was only beaten by an emulatorz player :D

BTW: I have asked this before, but never got a reply: What happened to Ron Corcoran? Doesn't anybody know?

Ron was a ref when I was just a gamer, but by the time I became a ref he had already left. I believe his job changed and he needed to move and then pursued other interests, so he had to leave Twin Galaxies behind. His contributions to Twin Galaxies are well known, but like all organizations we must move on.

Ok, thanks. I asked on TG as well, maybe someone there knows more about Ron :)

Please note that anyone who has sent an email directly to Robert Mruczek since November 11th regarding any information about their scores should kindly either send a PM to Kelly Flewin on the Twin Galaxies forum or send him an email at K_Flewin@Yahoo.Ca and let him know the information so he may properly incorporate it into the running tally correctly.

Todd is the Jaguar ref. Just use the on-line submission form accessed from a link on the home page of Twin Galaxies and the address is at the end of the process. Be sure to print and sign the form with your submission.

The whole project is stalled. Two referees, including the lead on this project, have recently resigned from TG for reasons that haven't been made clear.

There really is no true deadline. We will soon be splitting based on what we have, but we can make adjustments later if people step forward after the split. Imposing a deadline seems to imply that no changes can be made after the split, and that is not how we are handling this. We do however want to move forward as soon as possible, but I cannot quote a date at this time.

The whole project is stalled. Two referees, including the lead on this project, have recently resigned from TG for reasons that haven't been made clear.

The project is not stalled. Robert handed all progress off to Kelly and many of us are working behind the scenes on this effort as we have been all along. Robert was the voice for the effort at Twin Galaxies and I have been the voice for the effort here. All existing referees have the capability of completing this task and the effort has never belonged to one person alone.

Robert and Brien recently resigned due to personal reasons and burn out from time commitments. You have to understand that Twin Galaxies does not pay it's staff, this is purely volunteer work. People have volunteered a lot of time and effort to help the hobby for years and eventually the time will come to pass the baton. It is inevitable that at some point in the future others will resign as well as eventually volunteer work starts to feel like a job.

I was referencing the announcement made on the TG forums that the project was being put on hold in the wake of Robert's resignation.

When Robert announced his resignation he also stated that the project was on hold as he was no longer involved. Since then he has transferred his work to Kelly Flewin and various staff members are working with Kelly to see this through to completion. It was on hold for a few days until the transfer from Robert to Kelly was completed. I know there are various threads on this subject and everything might not be obvious, but rest assured that we are seeing this through.

This issue is now wrapping up and should be complete by the end of January. This thread will be locked and any further comments should be posted at the Twin Galaxies website or an email sent to Mr. Kelly R. Flewin at K_Flewin@Yahoo.Ca

Al - Thanks for keeping this as a sticky and assisting Twin Galaxies in this endeavor. Please lock this thread and remove the sticky.
