Figures...

The oldest of my submitted scores was finally accepted! It was a Gameboy Wave Race score from from 8/24/16. For those that saw it, you may remember the quality was pretty crappy. For those who didn't see it, the quality was pretty crappy.

I had never recorded for gameboy before and didn't realize how poor the final quality was until I uploaded. But I'd done work on over a dozen of them and so I figured I'd submit and let the adjudication process do what it does. Slowly, each of the scores was accepted except for this one (possibly due to an outspoken high cred member who has now been banned, but that's another story).

In any case, all of those videos and the controversy surrounding them forced me to up my recording game and I now have much clearer videos to submit (I have one of those desktop reading magnifiers with lights on it. The lights really improve the camera focus and the magnifier, well, it magnifies the screen).

So the Tuesday night I'd finished up with some other recordings and was looking at the adjudication board and thought to myself, "Maybe I should try recording this one again and resubmitting." So I took out Wave Race for the first time in months, powered on the Gameboy, selected Circuit 2, 800cc, and started playing. Of course, the very first game I play I beat the time I submitted back in August 2016 (14.61). I had a lap time of either 14.51 or 14.52 (can't remember at this writing and don't have the pad in front of me). "Perfect!" me thinks. I'll get this ready to go and submitted in the next week or so.

So it's only fitting that the 14 month old submission went through today.

I'm still pretty happy it finally went through. Now I just have one outstanding Wave Race submission and I'll have all the records that have competition on the game (I'll be working on the tracks with no submissions in the coming months). If you want to view the one remaining Wave Race score it;s right here -

    14 months is a quite a long time to have a Game Boy score sitting on the shelf.

    Also, I didn't know Game Boy had a Wave Race. :P

    In fairness, the quality was crap, so it's not terribly unexpected.

    The Gameboy Wave Race was the first. It's one of my favorites. It has a 4 player mode and saves lap times and course times, so it made it an awesome game to compete against your friends with (until we got game genies and started putting up ridiculous times).

    I understand that recording quality but still it shouldn't take over year choose whether to accept or reject this type of score.

    Just voted on that submission for you. Maybe you could be so kind to check this one of mine out. The last digit in my score is partly missing but I think you can tell that it's a 7. If not then adding the tricks up will work. No big deal if your not comfortable voting on it.

    I agree, I think the hold up was from the now banned member and their 28k of credibility at the time coupled with multiple pages of him clogging up the thread with one liners. I think people saw the quality, saw a bunch of pages in the thread, and decided not to deal with it. I get that. Ultimately, enough people voted yes though, so all is well that ends well.

    Thanks for the time you've put into this. Much appreciated. For some reason that link goes to my lower score when it should've went here.
