    This was recorded on April 18th, 2018 when the world record was still at 103,900 points and I was uploading my series of records to my old YouTube account, and was being actively ran by me for a couple of weeks.
    Score 1 - 112,200:

    Score 2 - 158,900:

    Score 3 - 174,900:

    Score 4 - 194,200:

    Score 5 - 278,300:



    The laptop which the original recordings were stored on had its hard drive corrupted, so I can only provide a copy which I obtained from the YouTube account.

    The description of the 278,300 video published on YouTube has been updated as of today in order to provide further evidence of the validity of these videos, to prove I am the original uploader.

    Grear scire, Lain! (btw, YouTube links to videos are not necessary. It is assumed that those who upload the video to TG under their own TG account is the owner of the video being uploaded, and the onus is on others to prove otherwise if there is any doubt.)

    Which emulator did you use for this? Just curious.

    Between the fact that there was no console shown, nor was there any boot-up shown, as well as the fact this was all done via direct capture, I have to abstain since I have reason to believe this was done on an emulator and not on a PAL console.

    Hi Lain and welcome to Twin Galaxies. Unfortunately, you didn't show your console start-up in your video. If you used an emulator, you must create an EMU track to submit your score. Creating a track requires 25 submission points (you must properly vote submissions from other users to earn them).

    That's a shame that this score can't get verified, but hey-ho you win some you lose some. My PAL Frontloader got converted to 60Hz not too long ago so that's really out of the question, but I can always submit on EMU if I do want to come back to the game, if not I might have a spare 50Hz NES board lying around that I can put in to a spare shell I have.

    Thank you anyways guys and I hope if I do come back to the game I can submit the proper verification for you all!

    Welcome Lain Scott to Twin Galaxies it would be a Wr for the PAL version.
    Excellent game play.

    1. What the TG members said before it is better to show the PAL console system and game cartridge the both are PAL it will be on them. So their be no questions or issues then TG members will safely vote yes to your game submission.

    The main reason to show the PAL NES console system and game cartridge is some people will use cheats like Game Genie,Pro-Action replay or codes that are on the game. The use of PC,Emulator, or MAME version of the game.

    Like Luigi mentioned here below about creating a emulator track that you can create, but the total cost is 35 submission points, 10 for creating the track and rules and 25 sp more to founded and funded for a platform.
    I will give links that will help you.
    If fo not know how to get submission points, you get by adjudicating other TG members video game submissions and being the right side of the voting were you get 1 submission and 3 credibility points for being right. here are some links will help understand the process here below
    Personally I have adjudicate more that 24,000 video game submissions.

    2. Always do a bootup on/off
    3. Always record game setting, track selection,difficulty excetra

    so to be clear this is pal modified to be 60 hz?

    the general rule is no modificatoins. there are case by case exceptions that pretty much boil down to "if it doesnt make a difference so what", but a change like this certainly is a difference. as an example of modifications are allowed are mods to allow people to play pirated games since the game itself still runs identically. an atari mod for video, which is how the atari natively worked anyway so is really more removing output changing components than actually changing the gameplay

    i'm not sure if a mod would count as emu either. if you have an original board i'd suggest just playing on that.

    Snowflake, the recordings are from when the system was unmodded and running at 50Hz in 2018. I got that NES modded for 60Hz output during August of this year since I am focusing more on collecting NTSC games now.

    I doubt I will be getting another PAL system anytime soon and I don't seem to have any spare PAL boards, so if I want to come back to this then I will have to create the EMU Track when I ultimately get the 35 points and when I feel like returning to this game.

    For now I have school to worry about and getting myself ready for life.

    Thank you JJT for the help and if I'll ever have to contact TG staff then I will, and thank you Lauren and Luigi for bringing to my attention about the guidelines for how to properly submit videos for future submissions.
