Why is my time in FZGPL not showing up for me?
Reply to this Post

 Today, I set broke my PR on Port Town - Forked Road with a time of 42"56 in FZGPL. I can't see my time on the ladder and I was just wondering if it was deleted. 

Here is a link to the video and please read the section in the description about the use of an emulator.

Thank you.

 emulator is not allowed in this site.

if you have submitted times using emulator, you'll have to remove them.

give the rules a good read to know what is allowed and what isn't.

 So I read the time submission rules in the GPL section and yes, I understand why saying that you are using an emulator means that mods can't tell if it's a TAS or not. They only explicitly say that no ROMs are allowed. Is this an anti- piracy measure or anti-cheat?

Also, I used the windows game bar to record my gameplay. I mentioned in my video description that RetroArch is an emulator that does not allow TAS tools such as frame recording and slowdown.

 it's mostly anti-cheat. there's a few ladders where you can technically play without owning the games but it's always on the original hardware and official releases like VC.

the majority of members feel that allowing emulator would allow cheating in some capacity since it's easy to modify videos to hide critical information. this won't change anytime soon.
