    I wasn't able to capture the whole thing, I started recording late, and then there wasn't enough space on my phone for the hour long video.

    Bah, I hate to have to say this, but I think you really do need to show the whole video. That score is incredible and I'm pretty sure it took you a long time to pull off, but I think you will need to submit the whole thing on video. You say you don't have the space for the hour long video, does that mean there isn't enough space, period? Or you just don't have enough free space at the moment? Try to free up some space or find a way to make a more compact recording. That's all I can say.

    Sorry man, I'll have to vote no on this one, but I'm sure you can do it again with the full video, and then it should check out perfectly fine.

    I would also have to degree that this would be invalid, as it is only a selected portion of the run.

    Go to Info then Select Help and Tutorials

    Zachary Here is Some Important Information Here Below that will Help you Understand

    WHAT SHOULD I PUT IN MY SUBMISSION EVIDENCE PACKAGE?

    Simply put, you should provide any and all tangible proof that you can to support your score performance claim.
    Our submission form has a place where you can upload a video recording (here are guidelines for your video recording) and there is also a place where you can provide a text description and any other evidence.

    Twin Galaxies provides you with a sophisticated text editor built into the submission form porcess that you can use to enter this information. There are many icons at the top of the editor available to click to perform different functions. If you hover your mouse over an icon and wait a moment, you will see a quick tool-tip description of the function being provided.

    For additional instructions on how to use various features of the text editor you can click here.
    Twin Galaxies' appreciates your submission! It is exciting for us, and our professional community, to vigorously review your submission and deem it worthy to be entered into the Twin Galaxies Score Database.
    The adjudication process begins with your submission form.


    To make sure that your score submission claim has the best chance of being accepted as valid into the Twin Galaxies Score Database, it is very important that you provide any performance video, documented evidence, screenshots, text descriptions, references (or all of the above - the more the better) that clearly support and verify your claim that the submitted score was achieved honestly, fairly and within the appropriate rules and spirit of the game.


    You must provide a comprehensive performance video of the score being achieved. The only video that can be considered as an official score performance is the video that you directly upload to Twin Galaxies.



    VERY IMPORTANT!
    **POLICY REGARDING SUBMISSION VIDEOS WITH EXTERNALLY ADDED OR RECORDED COPYRIGHTED MUSIC**
    Ideally Twin Galaxies would like to never have any copyrighted music in the score performances if it can be avoided. However, we do understand that sometimes people will have some music in the background as they stream live on Twitch or casually play, and the culture of live streaming has supported this to some extent. Therefore, we do allow background music to be present as long as the purpose of the video uploaded is purely to demonstrate and support a score performance claim for ranking purposes and NOT intended to be used as a music piracy distribution mechanism. We ask that submitters try to avoid including copyrighted music, but we believe that the record of a score performance is the primary point of viewer interest and trans-formative of the content, placing the music into a fair use category and we will defend this position as necessary.
    If you like to play video games and listen to commercial/copyrighted music/audio while doing so, Twin Galaxies recommends that you wear headphones while recording your score performance video so that the music you listen to does not get recorded.

    In order to ensure recognition by Twin Galaxies, your video evidence must be uploaded directly to the Twin Galaxies website. As of March 2018 we no longer accept video evidence hosted by a third party, including YouTube and Twitch. Any score submissions that do not follow this policy will be rejected and/or disqualified by Twin Galaxies administration.

    The reason for this is that your submission will serve as a permanent accessible record of your score performance and will be linked to your score in the database.
    Video links provided before this policy change are not regarded as permanent. In some cases video evidence has been removed and this counts as a valid reason for Twin Galaxies members to officially dispute these scores.
    Additionally, if the video is not under the jurisdiction and control of Twin Galaxies, it means that voting members know that the video could be tampered with AFTER a vote has taken place.
    These items can potentially allow questioning of the validity of your score performance to take place in the future by skeptical competitors who may not have the skill to match your performance.
    The only way you can guarantee that your performance is preserved, is to upload it to Twin Galaxies as a score performance video attachment. In order to download a score performance from Twitch.tv you can use a website such as: www.TwitchTools.com
    Additionally, there are other great tools that will allow you to download your performance video from places like youtube and others and they can be found with a simple google search. One such tool can be found at http://www.iskysoft.com/ but there are many others.

    Obviously, what you choose to put into your score submission evidence package is up to you. The VERIFIED voting community will decide what makes sense - however, Twin Galaxies strongly recommends that you play it safe and upload your score performance videos whenever you submit a performance!

    Be advised that the adjudication process is taken very seriously - so submissions with weak or highly questionable evidence will not likely be accepted. Leave nothing to chance with your submission. Be comprehensive. Be convincing. Twin Galaxies looks forward to seeing you on the other side of the adjudication process, where true achievement and recognition lives!


    RECOMMENDED GUIDELINES FOR RECORDING A VIDEO GAME SCORE PERFORMANCE
    Twin Galaxies requires that you include a comprehensive video recording of your claimed score performance in your evidence package.
    Having a clear and uninterrupted video capture of your accomplishment not only helps others feel more confident in confirming the authenticity of your claim, but it also helps others visually appreciate your amazing performance!


    There are numerous ways to capture your score performance (from video cameras to external and internal recording devices) and every one is valid. Your method of capturing the performance on video is entirely up to you.


    However, in order to upload your video to Twin Galaxies' adjudication system, you must provide your video as a digital file. The file formats that TG will accept are exactly the same as YouTube.



    WHAT SHOULD I RECORD?
    Twin Galaxies accepts score performance videos for many different gaming platforms, and each platform can have its own unique characteristics with regard to what is best to include as part of your score performance. When capturing a performance, you are encouraged to make every attempt to record in such a way that the gameplay, screen, and most importantly the score portion, are unobstructed as much as physically possible.

    Whenever possible, you are encouraged to record your platform being plugged in, turned on from a cold start, the game being inserted/loaded, demonstrating that all game settings are set according to the stated rules, and starting the game without any break/edit in the entire recorded sequence as described above.

    Additionally, some communities around platforms (such as Arcade) sometimes carry an unstated tradition of requiring the physical hardware that you are playing on to be visibly included/inspected as part of the total score performance video. If you are still unsure what to include, please visit the Twin Galaxies forums and ask the adjudicating community what the current expectations are for the platform you would like to submit on.


    ULTIMATELY, WHAT YOU INCLUDE IN YOUR SCORE PERFORMANCE VIDEO IS UP TO YOU!
    The goal is for you to give the adjudicating community as much supportive material as possible to go along with your score claim so that they can reasonably confirm your score claim to be honest, within the spirit of the game, and adhering to the stated rules.
    Please just record what you believe is necessary to substantiate your claim. After you initially submit your claim, you will be afforded an opportunity to provide more evidence should it become necessary.
    WHAT SHOULD I NOT RECORD?
    Ideally Twin Galaxies would like to never have any copyrighted music in the score performances if it can be avoided. However, we do understand that sometimes people will have some music in the background as they stream live on Twitch or casually play. Therefore, we do allow background music to be present as long as the purpose of the video uploaded is purely to demonstrate and support a score performance claim for ranking purposes and NOT intended to be used as a music piracy distribution mechanism. We ask that submitters try to avoid including copyrighted music, but we believe that the record of a score performance is the primary point of viewer interest and trans-formative of the content, placing the music into a fair use category and we will defend this position as necessary.

    A FINAL WORD
    Please keep in mind that submitting your score to the Twin Galaxies Submission and Adjudication System means that your performance is going to be scrutinized by many people. Please make sure that you include in your recorded performance whatever else you think may be necessary to give anyone watching the confidence they need to know that no cheating is taking place and that all the TG basic rules are followed. This system is hard on cheaters, but easy on clearly legit performances. Adjudicators are solely focused on being correct in their voting so that they will build personal credibility, so no one is motivated to view your submission inaccurately on purpose. To do so would mean a drop in personal credibility because it is unlikely that everyone else voting would do the same. So the very nature of the system is just looking for truth. Be truthful and honest in your recordings and you will have few problems!

    Welcome to Twin Galaxies, Zachary. :)

    As others have mentioned, the expectations for submissions are for the entire run unfiltered, unedited (except for splitting if particularly long). If you have a way to record the entire thing (external camera), then that would suffice but make sure the entire attempt is captured, including any preamble like loading the game and going through any settings applicable. The less things that are left to doubt, the smoother the submission process. :)

    Looking forward to another attempt - don't be afraid to submit something "sub-par" your abilities just to get used to the submission process. Despite the competitive nature around here, people are helpful. :D
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...
