    Hi there!

    I'm attempting to get a record on both NES and Game Boy Pac-Man, it will be my first time on TG and I have a doubt about the NES attempt I would like to clarify before submitting anything. My question is: I have a PAL NES, as I'm from Spain. Does it matter or do I need a NTSC console in order to submit NES records?

    Also, and just to clarify, I must submit a video of my setup and my record run, right? Do I need to submit anything else?

    Thank you for your answers!

    Cheers! :)

    Hey welcome to TG!

    PAL and NTSC consoles are in fact tracked on separate score boards. You can submit a PAL NES score but it would not be mixed in with the NTSC NES scores. I checked the NES Pac-Man tracks and there's one for PAL and one for NTSC. The PAL track is here https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/pa...-system/page/1

    The NTSC one is here https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/pa...-system/page/1

    As long as you pick the correct track for your console you're good to go.

    As for your evidence video - you've got it right. Video should show all game play from startup to the achievement being submitted. Evidence of the console and game being played is also recommended. There's kind of a fuzzy definition of what's "required" in an evidence video because the community decides if the evidence is good enough or not, but the TG guidelines say to play using original hardware so proof of that is best. Any more little questions or doubts or anything at all just air them out here and we'll be happy to talk through it.

    Also for GameBoy there are no regions to worry about but there are different tracks for the original release and the Color release

    Thanks very much for your answers!

    I forgot something though: My NES Pac-Man version is the Namco one, not the Tengen. AFAIK, they are the same game. Does it affect the run? Are there separate tracks for each version?

    Good question. The PAL NES track doesn't specify what version - I noticed that this morning - but the NTSC NES track says both versions are acceptable. I am going to assert that both versions are acceptable for the PAL track too.

    There are two different "games" on the scoreboard specifically for the NES' Nintendo vs. Tengen:

    Nintendo: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/te...ainment-system
    Tengen: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/te...ainment-system

    There are no PAL tracks for the Tengen version yet but they can be created if desired by the community.
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...

    This is correct for Tetris, which you linked to, and is also the case for Ms. Pac-Man, but not Pac-Man.

    LOL, I totally missed the subject matter!

    Thanks for your answers!

    I have just achieved the record live on my Twitch stream! The problem is, although I show my NES setup (console, gamepad and TV), my hands are not shown while playing. Would it be a valid method to validate the record?

    Thanks again for your guide!

    Regards!

    You will need to upload the video to TG, not just the link.
