Help in founding a new game/track

So I finally created the track that I mentioned in my previous Wall post. I changed the name ''Formula 1 97'' to ''Formula 1 Championship Edition'', since that is the NTSC title of the game.

All and any SP donations are more than appreciated:

    Missed the chance to support the track. Quick note, however: if the footage of the game shows the game "Formula 1 '97" then be prepared for a bunch of reject votes as the game you're submitting to does not match the game footage.

    There are plenty of games on the scoreboard with different names per region & the scoreboard has two general methods for copying with them: either create a game with both names in the title (typically divided with a / between them) or just have two different games on the scoreboard. :)

    Fair point. I personally don't see the point of PAL and NTSC in this case being split into two different games. Maybe the / in the game name could have been a valid option; I actually thought about it, but opted for only the NTSC title since I saw that kind of solution in some other games in the database.

    Unfortunately you might be right about the reject votes; but at the same time I have mentioned the alternative version for the game title in the additional info box. I would really hope a person adjudicating would take the effort to look in to the leaderboard and see all the rules and not just blind vote; but I know that's only a dream world scenario.

    @Barthax You know what, I'll test how the voters react; I'll submit a score to the queue today. I'll even put a message on the thread that explains the game name stuff.

    Once it is posted, make a post to the thread linking back to here & tag @admin staff there too so they can see the problem described here. Probably best to get both names put into the game name. :)
