    I'm sorry, Ian. You must post the whole video with the entire game play. Voting No.

    I uploaded a full game final score 4,002,200

    1st video is not the entire run. Unable to see score for entirety of second video, even at end to verify. Even if able to verify score for second run at the end, according to video title, score does not match with score that is posted. Voting no.

    Voting NO. Video did not capture entire gameplay, which would necessarily include a real-time visual of the score at all times.

    Welcome to TG! We are always glad to see new players arrive and submit scores! Unfortunately, many new arrivals submit their first score (like I did a few months ago when I got here) without including the elements necessary to receive the votes of most (all?) adjudicators, which for PC games would include capturing the application start-up, game settings (if any) the entire gameplay which would necessarily include a real-time, continuous view of the score throughout the entire performance, and the final score. I would recommend reading TG's "Guidelines for Recording a Video Game Score Performance" in the help section found HERE. It will give you a clear idea of what is looked for in a submission. I have to vote no on this, but don't be discouraged. I would highly recommend just performing another run and submitting a video that contains the elements listed above for the *entire* run, and your submission should fly through and be accepted.
