Jacob's RG5EX1's Super Awesome Gaming Challenge!

Since JacobTheMe has been unavailable for the past week, I've decided to take temporary control over this challenge. Hopefully he'll be back soon enough.

And on to the good stuff:
This challenge is open to all willing to compete, both gamers and non-gamers. Get ready to learn a bit about classic gaming, while honing your skills, and earning flippin' sweet bragging rights! Its simple, every Sunday I will post a new challenge up in the thread. You will then record yourself completing that challenge. (Emulators, camcorders, and console/tv records accepted).

When you post your proof on this thread, everyone will watch it and be really jealous. And then I will take the points you earned and add them along with your name to a scoreboard. Where you will collect points based on all your challenges to rank you amongst the rest of UG's gamers. But who will be the "Ultimate-Gamer"? (Yes, I used it as a plug in for UG. Deal with it.) Its time to find out!

The Rules
- This is an honesty based challenge. Its true that you can lie and fake it using somebody else as the player or stealing somebody else's video. Just keep in mind that gets rid of all the fun.
- If a faker is caught, we will blacklist the faker from competing for a month. (And they will have to complete a special request challenge).
- We don't encourage emulation, but if you must, then go ahead. But please buy the real game later on if you enjoy it.
-You may enter one video a week. Youtube is our only accepted hosting site. Please tag all videos with "UG", "JacobTheMe", "Jacobs", "Gaming", "Challenge", and your username.
-To enter a video, you must post it in this thread. I don't check my pm's. And you will not be entered or written down in the thread until you post a video.


SCOREBOARD OF SWEET SKILLS
Horlicks - 150pts
RG5EX1 - 150pts
imdeth - 150pts


CHALLENGE #2



Super Smash TV!!! This challenge is quite simple and easy for anyone to participate in. All you have to do is play the SNES version of Super Smash TV and basically do your best. High scores can be submitted with either a video or a screenshot (if the high score is super ridiculously high, I think people would prefer to see a video as proof) and the person with the best score will win points! Each person below that will earn points as well in a ladder system (as shown below)

NORMAL DIFFICULTY - CONTINUES ALLOWED



Goals:
1st - 200pts
2nd - 150pts
3rd - 100pts
4th and beyond - 75pts
*note: point values may change upon Jacob's return

That's right, by simply submitting your score you get a cool 75pts!

RESOURCES: Broke? System busted? Thats okay, you can still compete. I will not teach anyone about ROM's and emulation. (But google will). But there is also a decent flash version of the game. Its controls are awkward however, so its a last resort.

The challenge starts now!

So I have Midway Arcade Collection on the Game Cube, and it has a game called Smash TV on it. I'm assuming they are the same?

Not sure. I believe so.

Go ahead and use that if you want, or use an emulator to use the SNES version. It's up to you.

Going to have to figure out how to record with ZSNES, but sounds cool.

edit: Just read the proveable with screen shot part. Thank god. I'm not going to do too well since I've never even heard of this game, so you're not going to have to worry about me getting such stupidly high scores that video is necessary.

edit 2: What difficulty should we play on? And I take it continues are a no-no.

Please play on normal difficulty and you are free to use continues as you see fit.

I should probably update the OP with that info.

So after playing both the SNES version and the Midway Arcade Treasures version on the PS2, the SNES version is much easier. I'd suggest using a ROM to anybody that only has the Treasures collection. Since it's an exact copy of the arcade, it's basically designed to kill you as fast as possible as opposed to the SNES which is designed to be more playable.
#16
Surprised that you used my suggestion.

I'll attempt this one. The speedrun was way too time consuming and I've yet to accomplish it.

I wont be able to post a video though because I have dial up.

EDIT: I think you should put links to the videos for the SMB entrants for everyone to see.

This is to make sure I get my pity points.



I'll try and see if I can get a better score later.

EDIT: Derp, just saw we can use continues. Aw well.

This is actually a pretty good score compared to what I'm averaging.

I used 1 continue. Score is of course in the top left of the emu.

Are the people doing way better than I using all 4? If so, i'll do that next time. Busy right now.

Definetly use all continues. It's nearly impossible to get through the first boss battle without using them.

Here's my best run; sped up 4x so it fits in under 10 minutes

8,600,630pts

(Also let's start planning a new game for next week since Jacob still hasn't returned. I think doing another high score run is best considering the turnout for this one. Any suggestions are welcome. The most popular will be next week's starting Monday afternoon)

As much as I love that game (I've beaten it upwards of 10 times) it wouldn't work. Not everyone has the game and we can't expect people to go out and buy it for this competition.

Another suggestion:



(I SUCK AT THIS GAME)

We could also do a flash game of some sort, like Cube Runner, or are we sticking to console games?

I think people prefer the nostalgia of old console games, personally.

However, it is majority votes so if people want a flash game then it will be a flash game.
