[Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

(There was a tie between Metro and Icy, so I had a random number generator decide for me. tongue)

Rules:
- If you can't get a video, a screenshot of the "new best time" screen is fine.
- If you get a better score after you already submitted one, you can submit the better one as well, and I'll use that as your entry.
- Please only use scores that you got after the start of this contest.
- PM me your video or screenshot, and I'll post them all at the end.
- There will be a new "Contest Winner" badge for this contest.

New rules as of May 8th:

I think we're just going to have to do two separate categories like Gekoncze suggested. I don't want to have to make anyone redo their time.

Well, let's turn this into something positive - you now have two chances to win the contest if you submit to both categories! tongue

I think this goes without saying, but if you're using a screenshot, please don't say you didn't use superflame when you really did. I trust you all to be honest. wink

Since superflame might give an unfair advantage, I'm going to split the entries into two different categories: with or without superflame. That means there will be two awards for this contest.

The contest will last a month (until May 22). Good luck, everyone!

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

I probably shouldn't ask, but would downloading a rom of this game to play on a emulator be legal? I have the game I just can't find the CD. XD

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

Yeah, that's fine, just as long as you don't discuss where and how you got the ROM on the forum. tongue

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

i found it rather difficult to play Spyro when i first got an emulator a few weeks ago.

good luck with that, though.

i see we got my favorite speedway. tongue and you be quiet Gek.

question i've been meaning to ask: if i were to submit an entry to you (Stormy), but then i get a better time later on, can i submit that, too?

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

Yep! I should probably add to the rules that if you improve on your score before the end, you can submit your better one.

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

I've never been particularly good at Speedways(and Icy has usually been extra tricky), but I feel that I recorded a pretty good time today, so now I'll just have to remember to upload the video before the contest ends smile

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

Glad this goes on til the 22nd; I'll probably have to wait until finals and school stuff wind down before I try this out. Never been too good as speedways, but I'll try and give it a shot.

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

I have never been in contests, but perhaps I can give this a try.

But to be honest I don't know where this speedway is located. I might just Google it.

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

Stormy, i have a question. If i can use a screenshot as contest entry, then i have to send it to you through some communicator (for example via Skype), or can i just host it and send link in PM? Oh, i also have a problem and i want to post it here if i can (because i can't find any support tab out there) When i try to connect to SpyroChat IRC through SpyroForum, it tells me that my username and/or password are incorrect. I tried it multiple times yesterday as well as today. Can you help me with this please?


Never ask what I'd do for a klondike bar. No one wants to go down that road.

Yeah, I'd say you could use some sort of image uploader like tinypic or imgur and send a link of it to her in a PM.

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

Yep, you can just PM the screenshot to me.

As for the chat issue, I have an idea of what it might be, but I don't have access to actually verify or fix it. I'll check with SR on that, but for now, you can use this link to bypass the login field.

The Site Help/User Feedback forum would be the place to go for site-related questions, by the way.

Re: [Spyro 2] Speedway Best Time Contest - Icy Speedway

Stormy, will you have any sort of bias toward having Superflame or not? Like will you prefer a Non-Superflame score or are you just judging based on time?
