  1. YouTube Video in Submissions

    12-07-2017 at 03:55 PM
    Thanks HugDD thanked this post
    I admit that I am guilty of putting in submissions with ONLY YouTube videos. Because that was my only means of getting my lengthy videos submitted. If it was a short video, for example, my recent 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge video, then I was able to upload directly to the site. My Final Fight 2 submission ...

    Well the Seattle qualifiers is officially over. I placed 5th. For someone who doesn't play modern Mario Kart on a regular basis, going against pro players, busting my ass on Mario Kart 7 for a month and getting sick of playing now, I'd say I did a pretty damn ...

    So some of you may have heard on Settle It On the Screen or on my personal Facebook, that I'm trying my hand on getting to the 2017 Nintendo World Championships big stage in New York. Since the announcement of this event, I've been playing the game since that following day busting my tail trying to ...
  4. SNES Submissions

    Is there a reason why they're taking longer than most? I just don't see why there's a reason they're in the submission review section for this long when there's nothing wrong with the submissions. Thank you to those who have already voted. Down below are some examples.

    So I've been having some more uploading problems here. I've attempted to upload a couple videos a few times each with no success. I've even zipped the video files and tried to upload it as an attachment, again no luck.

    I've done everything that I could within my power (or lack thereof) ...

    ...and I wasn't recording. Dammit! That would've been WR in lines for SNES Tetris. Never hit 299 lines before.

    I have been one of many, or few, users here that have had constant troubles uploading directly to TG. My videos do come from my YouTube account and depending on if I can't upload to TG still, it may have to remain that way.

    If you look at my all my scores, NONE of my videos are private ...

    I can't seem to wrap my head around something. Some submissions can take within a week to be verified and then there are others that take over a month to be verified. Why? Is it a credibility thing? Is it something about the user? I'm just curious how this all happens.

    Hope all is well ...

    So I've been on a mission to obtain most of the Nintendo Competition game world records. As some of you already know, I currently have the 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge, 1992 Super Nintendo Campus Challenge, and 1994 Powerfest records. Donkey Kong Country Competition is in the midst of being verified, ...

    So this is going to be my first year doing the Extra Life charity. I've been wanting to do this for a while but never had the time to do it. I'm reaching out to everyone here to please help me out by making a donation. I'm accepting donations between now and November 5th. I hope you all can help me ...
  11. Pinball Fantasies on SNES - F--K that game!

    10-13-2016 at 12:34 AM
    I just got finished spending 3 hours UNSUCCESSFULLY trying to raise my score for the RNOO tourney. If I could use every curse word in the book, I'd use it on that game. It's like game physics took a massive dump and created this garbage of a game.



    Feel free to call me crazy ...

    For a site that promotes competition, the coverage on on-going tournaments is very lacking. :(

    It's been a week now since the competition started and still have 1 more week to go.

    I've been able to keep the 1st place position for a majority of the week in only 12 out of the 13 games. Now that some of the other players have played all 13 games, all there is now is to attempt to improve ...

    I figure I should start writing about things that are going on with me as far as my gaming is concerned.

    08-05-2016 at 08:23 AM
    So after hitting my 17.5 Million score on the 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge, I realized that there was possibility of hitting 18 million as long as I had that little bit of extra time that I did. So the other night I decided to give it an attempt. Lo and behold, it can be done. I hit 18,108,000 the ...

  17. Competition/Tournament Resumè

    Figured I'd try and keep a record of my achievements on my profile. Of course due to change as I do more tournaments. I'd love to be able to get out of the Pacific Northwest and go elsewhere to participate in other competitions. I feel like I've already established myself here in Seattle. I've already ...
