May I ask a valid question regarding submitting performances? I read in the info section that direct game capture is a valid submission,but that communities surrounding the games themselves require different stuff and basically make up their own rules as they go such as requiring the system to be seen being powered on and whatnot.
I stream my performances on Twitch and therefore the system isn't seen being turned on and so on since it is the video output of the system being captured, so before I bother even trying to submit anything, would a video capture of the game being played on Game Boy Player be considered valid? I considered emulation for a better picture quality but thought to mystelf that it wouldn't be considered valid then, as it would therefore not be run on legitimate hardware and some may consider that it's harder to tell if cheats are being used or not (though the internals of a Game Boy can just as well be modified in a non-intrusive way to cheat that would not show on camera, for that matter).
So my question is simple, would a video capture in that style be considered valid if trimmed to omit failed attempts and then submitted : https://www.twitch.tv/videos/261993447
Solid question, I would also like to know
Don't trim to omit failed attempts. Since it's the GB Player you still get to see the "boot-up" in a way. If you capture the video feed directly from the point you power up to the point of the submitted run you should really be fine. Whip out the cell phone and take a quick video showing the console in real life when you get your run you want, then show the screen as it appears on the direct feed, then show yourself using the controller to navigate away from that screen before a power-off. That would be a most satisfactory set of evidence videos - the full run from direct feed beginning with power-up and the auxiliary live video showing the hardware. Oh and pop the GB Player disc out and show us that too. Seems like a lot but it would virtually guarantee an acceptable evidence package.
Hi folks! If you don't mind, what counts as a gameboy? If I record video playing on the Nintendo Switch gameboy emulator, does that count? Or does the presence of rewind or the fact it's a different console mean it's a different category?
This particular track is for original hardware by Nintendo capable of playing the physical GameBoy cartridge during its commercial lifespan. So physical GB, GBC, GBA (but obviously not GB Micro), the GB adapters for the SNES and GameCube and whatever DS capability there was.
The scoreboard can be extended to include emulation - you'll see a bunch of tracks on other games with an "EMU - " prefix for that sort of support. They get created by the community where there is an interest so the lack of EMU tracks here just means there hasn't been interest in them as yet by community members willing to go down the track creation process.
