And yes, I used exactly this tactic.
Thanks for your comments guys.
I admit I got discouraged by a poor legit ratio, due to multiple no votes. Maybe I should have not chickened out...
Exactly, and I did, but I got several "no" votes with the motive : "I'm doubting the tactics used"
So I deleted my score and asked for a new category...
Thank you !
No joke, I've seen that you use the initials BUB for your scores, it could add to the evidence if you registered your initials on your profile.
But I didn't mean to be arrogant at all, do as you like of course :)
Voting yes !
Maybe you could update your initials ? ;)
Thanks a lot Mark !
I tried to be to be as rigorous as possible with it in order to not have any skipping, and so the viewer can see the moments when I pause and unpause the game.
This is the EU version of Contra.
The first loop went rather smoothly, except for stage 7 where I panicked a little.I was less focused in the second loop, and I did especially bad in stages 5, 7, and 8.
Score at the end of first loop : 748300Final score : 985300
I had to pause the game 3 times, see below.
Every time, I pause the game, THEN turn off the camera in this order, and after that I unpause the game AFTER restarting the camera.
16'19 : resetting the camera, which cannot record more than 30' videos.23'50 : battery pack change37'30 : a friend came over (you can hear the doorbell) so I paused to open the door ; she didn't know I was recording so you can hear her talking me in french :D
I agree :$
It's my childhood gameboy, so it isn't in a very good shape :-)
Very fun to watch, nice job !
edit : Leonardo, not Donatello :D (Donatello is the last turtle to be freed)
Final score on picture 3 (picture 2 is just before dying : I killed 2 ennemies between pictures 2 and 3, thus the 150 pts difference).
This game is crazy hard : bosses are very difficult to beat in 1 continue, I only managed to pass boss 1 and to free Donatello in this run.
Very nice ! Voting yes too, for "any tactics".
I see that someone has an issue with the tactics used.
Again, the tactics used are the same than the current top score : http://highscore.com/scores/GameBoy/SuperMarioLand/12323
But if it still doesn't seem fair, maybe creating a [all tactics] category for this game, and putting this score along with the others using this same tactic should make it right.
Please leave a comment and give your thoughts before downvoting, I'm open to discussion.
I used the tactics detailed in AlexKidd's score page comments.
I used 25 lives in level 2-2, and the rest (16) in the last level.
Thanks a lot !
Nice run !
Voting yes :)
Sorry for the poor quality of the second photo, but there's only approximatively 1 second during which the final score is displayed, after defeating Mr Dedede. So it was taken in a hurry :)
Agreed, it seems hard to get 25 votes at the moment.
Thanks ! I'll do (and I already did) :)
Agreed ! Nice seeing someone making efforts for Androïd games !
Voting yes on your scores, because video evidence every time, and makes me like pinball :)
Seems fun !
Thanks GTIbel !
Agreed, I didn't own it as a kid and wasn't aware that it was good.
I was reluctant a few years ago, but then found it boxed for a fair price, and then told my friends about it. And they went like "Batman ? Man it's nearly a must-have !" I felt supid ahah.
Awesome soundtrack also. Can't get bored of listening to it.
Indeed I don't know why but the video stopped working.
I re-uploaded it, but is it possible to edit or remove previously submitted evidence ?
Thanks for the cheering, the advice, and the votes guys !
Thanks ! :)
(And sorry for the double post earlier)
I understand why the skipping might be sensitive. I have to fix that on my camera. I'll also try to avoid farming next time.
Wow, someone already voted against it... Please leave a comment explaining why it doen't seem legit for you, although I have a video and a picture (and I'm saying my name in the video).
Hi guys !
First time posting a score !
Please give me advice if you feel that I can improve my pieces of evidence.
Notes :- The video skips a little part at 30:00 (probably due to a recording length limitation, will have to fix that)- I farmed a little for health in level 4-1.
I totally screwed dutng the 4th boss, first time confronting him and didn't know how to handle it.
