Tournament Submissions Rules
(1) MAME Submissions
All WolfMAME versions 106 and higher are acceptable (the preferred method). The INP file is required, needs to be enclosed in a zip archive and should contain only one recorded game. If using WolfMAME 0.106, please include the WLF file in the zip archive as well.
Other MAME versions are acceptable, but MUST include a link to a publicly available video in addition to the INP zip file. The video should capture the entire process: starting MAME, adding credits, the complete gameplay, the inital entry screen (or high score table), and the Nintendo of America Inc. title screen.
(2) Arcade Submissions
Arcade submissions must provide a continuous, uninterrupted video. The video should capture the entire process: adding credits, the complete game-play, the initial entry screen (or high score table), and the Nintendo of America Inc. title screen. Players must show proof of the date and time in their video.
Upon completion of the game, the player is encouraged to show the underside of the control panel, demonstrating the use of 4-way controls.

All scores should be submitted no later than 24 hours from the timestamp at which they were achieved. Any score submitted beyond the 24-hour time limit will be removed. If it cannot be determined that a score was submitted within 24 hours, it will be removed.
