Q&A

Which game regions are allowed?
USA, NA, EU, ASIA, JAP (Keep ingame info, dialogue and menu in english)

Are emulation allowed?
Yes, all allowed. Make sure your rom is legally obtained and aren’t some kind of bootleg / fan-translated (unless it is stated that particular game may use it, example: Sweet Home; Nintendo 8-bit).

Which challenge is the actual one?
There is only 1 challenge active at any given time. Check date on each version that is uploaded here or on Discord.

Do I have to speedrun?
No, these challenges are both for casual gamers and speedrunners. If you do a speedrun, make sure to make 1 complete run in 1 video. There is additional real life achievements to obtain for doing speedrunning and it will be part of the diploma if you are among the best of the best.

Do I have to complete all of these in one go?
No, not unless you are speedrunning it. If you have the casual approach then go for it anyways. It’s a much sweeter victory and will be faster validated! But you can also do highlights or send in multiple VOD files, marking them part 1, part 2 etc.

What can I win?
If you can finish all challenges (bronze, silver or gold) and be validated as such, you will earn a PDF diploma / certificate for accomplishment, and bragging rights. You can either use it as a wallpaper, print it or upload it on the web. Each PDF diploma will be a 297×210 mm design. Your Twitch-name will be attached to it. Contact me if you want a different name.

When can I submit my highlights / video VOD / streamclips?
During Prime Time, to the Discord.

Can I send in a new VOD file?
Yes! If you have already sent a VOD and think you can speedrun it better, send in a new one! But think about the deadline, if you send it day after the actual date it won’t count, and you might also miss out on the Early Bird Achievement.

What kind of challenges can we expect in the future?
Achievement-hunting, reach levels, defeat special bosses etc is the main thing. See it as mini goals, and a excuse to try out different games you never thought you would ever try out in the first place. Games will always be ‘Retro’.

Can I use exploits / codes / cheats / save states?
No. If you skip dialogues, glitch through areas, use save states or game genie up better gear, immortality etc. are strictly prohibited. Things that are featured in game that are designed to be used (warps, better strategies, powerful items, patterns, characters that gives you an advantage) are fine as long as they are used as developers intended. While we understand passwords are included in the development intention side of things we won’t allow this in challenges, or cheats, unless stated otherwise in that specific challenge. Join the Discord to find out more or ask for advice. If we see unethical practice of these, or things like skipping frames to gain advantage in speedruns and/or casual play may result in blacklist and ban.

Are Hacks / Custom roms allowed?
No, I can’t validate hacked versions, not even those that “only changes sprites / sfx / music / translation”.

Discord invite is broken, how do I join?
Contact me manually, let me know. I will send you an invite + fix the one on the website. Thanks.
