PostI'm The Best! - Week 1 Times updated - Week 2 Main Event now live (See Pg 5/OP)

So after a couple of people suggested it in the SNES Mini thread, I thought it might be an idea to create a thread for leaderboards in the spirit of N64 magazines "I'm The Best" feature.

Who is the fastest? Who's the best?

This is where we can find out.

All you need to do is submit your best times or scores for a game and we'll display them here for all to see.

RULES
1. Only confirmable scores will be accepted. This means screenshots or photos. Submit a pic of your times/scores and I'll update them as often as I can.

2. Each game has an "Official" version that we will be using (E.g SNES Mini NTSC/60Hz). You can submit for slightly different versions, as long as they are the same region and clearly marked (E.g Emulator, NTSC/60Hz).

3. Where we aren't using original hardware, we ask that you refrain from submitting scores/times where you have used save states or rewind features. Scores/times should be achieved "Live".


If anyone wants to submit any particular games then feel free. Doesn't need to be a racing game. Anything with a score, time or percentage that can be measured. Just make sure you tell me the format so I can make it clear.

I thought it would be nice to start with a couple of games from the SNES Mini, with F-Zero and Super Mario Kart.

Submit your best times for any/all tracks you want to be included. I imagine we'll start off slow, so don't worry about not posting an epic time right now. We just want to see what you can do for now.

GOOD LUCK!

Incidentally I just thought about that ten minutes ago while unlocking the Special Cup on SMK. Not entirely sure how I feel about that to be honest...

There's no way to stop people using it though, so I guess we just have to accept it.

What does everyone else think?

I was only joking, but some that will do it.

It's impossible to stop people doing it though so we'll just have to live with it.

The gentlemen's agreement would be not to do it - hopefully everybody in the thread is trustworthy.

That would be my take.

It's fine for practising, but submitted times/scores should be achieved "Live" so to speak.

Was flicking through the NGC ITB section the other day checking a review for Tales of Symphonia and still recognise a number of names from here, including Drumstick, Rex McGee and MHTL, I'm not sure Pell had destroyed the leaderboard at that point. Of course after all my years of being a mod/GRc/GR/NGC reader I know the real name / username pairings. :shifty: It's a bit of a small world, really.

Upload a video if you want to be really sure. Or let's all just take part like adults and not cheat to win a friendly tournament with no actual prizes!

Great idea for a thread. I don't have a SNES Mini so will be unable to take part in these particular challenges - how long will this one go on for and will there be other formats involved in the future?

You don't necessarily need to use a SNES Mini though do you? Unless some banana split uses ROMhacks but they're only spoiling their fun. You can freeze gameplay, rewind and save anywhere on that console now anyway.

I can run these SNES games in 60hz on my Raspberry Pi, although the audio is strawberry floated, I'm pretty sure the gameplay is acceptable. Of course the fact I suck at them isn't important, I'll just revel in my name being published on GRcade(TM) at the bottom of every column. :cool:

Obviously discounting emulation, wouldn't that potentially create variation across versions anyway?

For Mario Kart and F-Zero are we sticking strictly to Time Trial mode? If not the times are going to be affected by items or higher speed classes...

I guess, I've always been interested in how effectual the differences actually are. For example unless t's the case of milliseconds, does it really matter? You could always add a booby tag like [Unofficial Platform] or something for people to discount and downplay should they wish, that way more people can participate ;)
