Starting on January 1st, 2017, 00:00 UTC, TASVideos will drop support for submitting movies from certain emulators.
The list of emulators that will be dropped is: Mupen64-rr, PCSX-rr, PSXjin, Dega and FCEU.
These emulators will be dropped for various reasons, depending on each emulator. Largely, they suffer from emulation accuracy issues, have poor game support, have poor sync stability that make the jobs of judging or publishing runs on them more difficult than needed, are hard to encode for, or have already largely fallen out of use. For more details about each specific emulator, see the links to the respective forum topics below.
For each of these emulators, a better alternative exists that does not suffer from all of these issues.
For those working on a TAS project on one of these emulators that may not meet this deadline, a continuance
may be requested. To do so, post in the appropriate forum topic for: Mupen64-rr movies
, PCSX-rr or PSXjin movies
, Dega movies
, or FCEU movies
. Continuance requests are accepted until December 15th 2016, 23:59 UTC.
