Classic Arcade Game Discussion / Who Framed Roger Rabbit
« Last post by DonkeyKongGenius on Today at 06:35:30 AM »
While it is not a Classic Arcade game, I am looking for a knowledgeable person that understands emulators and disassembly, etc. I am putting up a $200 bounty for the person willing to find a way to get either Bizhawk or FCEUX to sync with original hardware for Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I am trying to get one of these emulators that has a TAS editor to produce the same outcomes as original hardware so that I can TAS out thousands of variations of input manipulation that I could use on original hardware.

This guy has done a really good start on it but is not interested in looking into it further. I feel that it is probably as simple as writing a Lua Script to overwrite a value or some other issue. We have ruled out Initial RAM State, and I can get four different outcomes depending on whether I am using FCEUX(Old PPU), FCEUX(New PPU), Bizhawk(quickNES), or Bizhawk(NesHawk). https://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16226&start=30#p200713

If you are interested at all please post below and I will try to fill you in on as much information as possible beyond the linked thread.

Moderator Error!!!:

Crap... I (Mitchell) accidentally editted this post instead of creating a response. Gonna see if Jeff can restore it. Sorry!


No worries Mitch  ;D
This post was just explaining that the wilms leech + gardikis double jump can only be pulled off together on the 5th girder due to long ladder placement. The Gardikis double jump or better known as the 6th girder double jump can be pulled off on any of the girders provided it is done on the the last 3 red block/ segments of a girder (and maybe mid girder on the 1st? I could have sworn I seen Ethan Daniels pull it off).

This picture demonstrates the areas where each move can be pulled off, at least as far as I am aware.


EDIT: Jry just cleared something up in the shoebox, The 1st girder leech I saw ED do was a wild double leech, not a Gardikis jump as apparently thats only possible on the ends of girders due to a decrease in barrel speed before the barrel rolls off the girder and therefore keepining it within range. So disregard that green box on the first girder, lets all just blame Barra and move on  Kappa

I love seeing these little strategies and what people can come up with. In my mind until we incorporate things such as this, top-shelf jumps and right side climbs we'll never see a true "maxout" of the game.

Yeah, I don't think that this will add more than a few hundred to barrel board averages, and don't think that 14k is viable with only this added technique. Please prove me wrong!

Interesting read linked there, timhett.  Complete with a quote from Julie:

Julie Winecoff ScogginsFebruary 1, 2016 at 10:21 PM

I'm the girl that Ok Soo Han beat to win the women's division.
I won $2000 & my check bounced too, but Atari sent me a replacement check & all ended well.
This was also the cover story for Time Magazine's December 1981 issue.
I still have a copy plus my trophy & a tee shirt.

I remember reading about that contest awhile back.  Was the 3 minute track I think and she had said Han bodied her completely IIRC.   Is there any record of what Han's score was?

Han's score in the finals of the Women's division was 53,220, for which she won $4000.

Eric Ginner's score in the Open final was 52,341, for which he won $12000.

Perhaps Ms. Han should have entered the Open division...

Damn.  Go Han!  Nice score yourself as well John.  I think  <Mruczek> typically mentions 3m centipede and DBH's score as his favorite or among his favorite CAG records.  Being only like a 300kish player I don't know enough about the game or the track to make such statements but I trust that whatever DBH does on Centipede is likely miraculous.
