Great work, Estel!  Hopefully I'll be joining the list before the year is over.  Sorry, I mean to say before my life is over.

Welcome to DKF! Unfortunately I was unable to play back your INP.  :( The INP looks like a WolfMAME 0.189 INP, and I used the Windows and Linux versions of 0.189, but the playback desyncs very early in the game (meaning the game dies off, but I can still see your inputs as if you're still playing). Did you use a different front-end for WolfMAME, or a different build?

I compiled the WolfMAME V0.189 sources on my Mac and use this build for playing and recording DK sessions. To be honest I do not have a clue why the resulting INP does cause such issues on a Windows or Linux system... Bad luck for me, maybe I'll switch to the Windows build of WolfMAME running in a VM on my system and try that out.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your effort and letting me know of the issues!

Cheers,
Guido

Ok, that makes sense as I've seen that issue before. Unfortunately, I don't have a Mac to verify scores (a newer one anyway), so if it's not too much a trouble, creating a Windows/Linux INP would be greatly appreciated. We certainly want to get you on the scoreboard, so we'll work something out! Thanks for your patience!

So, another try. This time the inp was recorded on a Windows 7 machine running WolfMAME v0.189 and can hopefully be verified. The score itself is not as good as that from my first submission but it's still ok (at least for me), so let's try and get it on the scoreboard ;)

Way to go Estel mate!   Lit
And as the cattlerack was cleared
The floor was brightly stained
And larger though we grew in size
Not a thing was gained
The fate as so ordained

OK here's another run. Also not great but it's a "low pace" run a bit deeper. About 650k, level 15 or 16, this time on wolfmame 193 (apparently that's the new one - I upgraded both machines to that now). Hopefully this one is better than the 179 I used last time. A 450k man is the best part of this.

Not even top 100. Boo.

Everything looks good! Great score, sir! Your INP has been verified and your score has been updated on the HSL.

Hello,
I'm brand new to the forum and just trying to submit my first score. I think I've attached the inp file, but not sure what the other files I need are. Any assistance appreciated, thanks.

Welcome to DKF! verything looks good. Zipping the INP is the way to go, and since you're using a more recent version of WolfMAME you don't need to submit anything other than the INP itself. Your score has been verified and added to the DKF High Score List! It's listed as "C. Buck", so let me know if you'd prefer something else. Let's see some more submissions soon!

My first submission! (I have video of a slightly higher score last week but I didn't know about the .inp files. I figured I should check that this .inp is legitimate and everything checks out on your end.)

Thanks for the submission David! I'm glad you submitted a non-PB, because I need to point out that we use a different build of MAME at DKF. It looks like you're using the vanilla, original build. DKF requires the use of WolfMAME for score submissions. This build is designed more for competitive play (disables things like pausing, save states, speed changes, etc. while recording INPs). You can find it at http://wolfmame.marpirc.net/ or https://github.com/mahlemiut/wolfmame/releases/. It runs the same as regular MAME, just with the aforementioned changes. Everything else looks good (controls are player's choice, and videos are always nice!), so get WolfMAME sorted out and you'll be good to go! Let me know if you have any questions.

Oh duh, yes that's been clearly stated in a few places. Sorry about that. I misread something and thought that version wasn't necessary anymore.
Working on installing it now, thanks! Maybe I'll see if I can break my old PB before I post again8)

Here's another test run. I built wolfmame and used it, I hope it worked. I didn't record video of this one.
