New to the High Score Scene

I always wanted to do something for score, rather than speed and I discovered this place after several videos of "interesting" subjects. So I figured, why not join, verify and get a score going...


So, here I am! Glad to finally make it to the party!

    Welcome to Twin Galaxies Sinister-Sama!
    If you need any help with anything just ask me or someone else here, most of us are more than willing to help out.

    I would suggest adjudicating a few titles before submitting so you know the process, what's expected of a submission, the general rules pertaining to each platform, and to gain submission points so that you can submit more records.
    Here at TG in order to submit a performance it costs like 2-3 'submission points'. Submission points are gained by successfully adjudicating the performances of yourself and others. I say 'successfully' because if you vote incorrectly there is something like a 10% hit to your Credibility Points, and you need to maintain a Cred Point level of 1000 in order to submit records. So make sure you thoroughly review any submissions you adjudicate.

    If you're submitting for a console like NES, SNES, Genesis, Atari, etc it's best to to include footage of the console, game cart, and controller if possible. You will need to video record the entire performance, from boot up of the game till you achieve your high score/time. Depending on the game you will also need to show any menu's that confirm you're playing on the correct settings.

    If you're submitting an arcade performance its best to include footage of the PCB and settings menu or dip switches.

    In order to get your submissions accepted in a timely manner one may also include time stamps of the games so voters know where to watch.

    It may seem like a lot to take in but its really all pretty simple and can be done in a few seconds. Here's an example of one of my recent submissions. You'll see some general time stamps in the description, footage of my controller and the game at the beginning of the video, and footage of the game disc and console at the end of the video. Also included is footage of game boot up and the entire game performance. As you will also see from this submission, you may record as many attempts as you wish.

    I see where you're coming from and yes, most if not all of my runs will have video evidence to back up the score. I'll further read the rules for each game I submit and from there, make sure I follow the guidelines.

    Can only be "all", not "most".

    :D

    Just sayin'.

    (Gotta have start to finish video evidence here, can't even clip the "good part").
