We'll change it up a bit over time. But if there's a particular game you want to do then let me know and I'll add it up there.

Time Trial only.

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?

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 ;)


People can submit times for other 60hz versions if they like, but they should label the source if it's not the "Official" platform for that game.

I'll update the rules later on today.

Should we just start off with one cup and league, else it's a bit spread out?

Might be worth picking a "Main Event" so to speak for each week. I'll think on it and post something later.

I've started on Mario Circuit 1 too - I'd forgotten how addictive the time trial is on this game.

I definitely find the starting boost is more tricky than the later games.

And updated with all the times posted so far.

Lime dominating Mario Circuit 1 with the top 4 best overall times, while Hypes currently holds the fastest lap! It's still very early days right now though, so get those times in. I'll try and update the times at least once a day.

Mario Circuit 1
BEST LAP: Hyperion - 0:12:92 - D.K Jr

1st - Lime - 1:06:83 - Bowser
2nd - Lime - 1:07:14 - Bowser
3rd - Lime - 1:07:21 - D.K Jr
4th - Lime - 1:07:24 - Bowser
5th - Miguel007 - 1:07:44 - D.K Jr


I'm sitting pretty on F-Zero Mute City 1, but that's only because no-one else has submitted any times yet. :slol:

Mute City I
Best Lap: Cheeky Devlin - 0:24:67 - Blue Falcon

1st - Cheeky Devlin - 2:09:03 - Blue Falcon
2nd - Cheeky Devlin - 2:09:51 - Blue Falcon
3rd - Cheeky Devlin - 2:11:88 - Blue Falcon
4th - Cheeky Devlin - 2:12:18 - Blue Falcon
5th - Cheeky Devlin - 2:24:34 - Blue Falcon


I think we'll focus on those two tracks this week. So......

The Main Event!

From now until Wednesday evening next week we'll be focusing on Mario Circuit 1 from Super Mario Kart and Mute City 1 from F-Zero!

It should hopefully spread itself out over time as more people submit times.

I was 5th in the list after Miguel007 until Lime rocked up with his times. Always hated that Lime guy. :x

I'll just bask in the moment of fame before tumbling down the scoreboard into mediocrity.
