I need more attention to my post in doremi submission, but it got no responds so I'm reposting it here:
In cases where you have no detailed rules, you must just observe all possible aspects and make a decision that seems fair.
1. This run does not sync
on BizHawk, it has a completely different lag picture in the beginning, I added 8 (!) blank frames to let it pass the title screen and then it desynced on the cutscene skipping. I expect all the movie not to sync throughout.
2. This run met some positive feedback
, people want this published.
3. This run is a good improvement
over the previous movie (made on the same emulator).
4. This run was started way before
the snes9x issue appeared, and was possibly finished before that as well.
5. This run was not suggested
for the continuances list.
I think it is fair for me to pick this submission as well, as I rejected Chuck Rock due to using a deprecated emulator this run also uses. I also know we have another improvement done on snes9x in the Workbench and we somehow must work out the decision for both of them with no contradiction between the staff.
So, using a deprecated but technically still supported emulator is the most important factor, but not the only one. And this site is not about disallowing the creators to share their hard work pieces. In such cases, we must look for enough reasons
to make a positive exception. If there are not enough of them, no exception is done particularly.
Chuck Rock met no
reasons to make a positive exception, in my eyes. This run meets them. Super Turrican submission also seems to meet them. Let's cook some kind of a precedent here, I ask members and staff to examine my logics and respond.
