THE OLD TWIN GALAXIES VIDEO TAPE ARCHIVE

Over the span of 30+ years, many passionate video game players have submitted amazing performances to Twin Galaxies with a desire for recognition and acknowledgement.

The vast majority of the performances that were sent to Twin Galaxies were recorded on VHS video tape (or DVD), and TG referees would review those recordings as part of the old process of adjudication. Once they were reviewed, the tapes were placed in boxes and archived away, never to be seen again!

Since VHS tapes will not last forever, Twin Galaxies has decided to open those archive boxes and digitize as many tapes as it can for long term preservation.

Some of the tapes may be for performances that are already listed in the Twin Galaxies database, and some of the tapes may be of score performances that referees from the past were never able to find enough time to adjudicate.

This Wiki page is where Twin Galaxies will provide links to a copy of each tape that is digitized and preserved.

There are hundreds of tapes to process, so this list shall continue to grow over time.

If old performances that were not adjudicated at the time of submission during an old Twin Galaxies era are found, they will not automatically be placed into the Twin Galaxies database. Instead, the individual who originally submitted that performance can re-submit it under the new and current TGSAP adjudication system.
