Welcome to the monthly SNES contest, in its second year now.  We will be playing two games every month up until November, with the points leader being crowned champion in December.  There is no tournament as of yet but you never know what the future holds.  Prizes will also once again go out to the top 3 players at the end of the season. 

Also, thanks to the NES crew for the ideas and support for this companion contest.  I'm still learning, and improving this thread every day

General Contest Rules
Posting Scores
  • Pictures are required.  This is a revision of my previous thoughts because that is the sentiment from people participating.
  • In order to submit a score for the contest, take a picture of your score with your user name written or typed on a piece of paper, which must be present in the picture. Your user name mustbe in the picture or the score will be invalid. The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself.
  • When posting a new score, please begin your post by typing out your score.  Larger font (18pt) is preferred.
  • If you are posting an updated score, please edit your initial post with the new photo and score. You can still create a separate new post as a bump to notify you edited your score if desired.
  • Please do not begin a competition run on the new title before the 1st of the month, 12AM NA time.  Please do not post a score for said title on or after the 1st, 12AM NA time, of the following month.  Feel free to do practice runs of any of the titles whenever you want.
Emulators/PowerPak

  • Emulators ARE allowed to be used in the monthly contests. However, anything that may give a player an advantage with an emulator over playing on the system is NOT allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, save states, Game Genie codes, altered ROMS, and turbo controls.  It is preferred if everyone plays on a console.
  • A PowerPak IS allowed to be used in the competition with the same regulations as with emulators. You may not use save states, Game Genies codes, altered ROMs or anything else that would give you an advantage over playing with the regular cartridge.
Points and Leaderboards

  • Each month players who submitted scores will earn points as follows. 
  • 11 points to 1st place, 10 to 2nd, etc.  Update: 9th place and lower will receive 3 points.  This works well for the NES contest, I'm adopting it.  There will also be opportunities for skilled players to earn bonus points each month
  • There will be separate leaderboards for each of the two games every month, and separate points awarded.  You can compete in one or the other, or both.  Your choice.
  • Update: At the end of the year everyone will have their lowest scoring month dropped.  Effectively, you get a free pass to be terrible or take a break for a month, with no consequences.
  • The overall champion will be the combined points leader after 11 months
Prizes

  • Will be awarded to the top 3 finishers.
  • In addition, the overall champion will get to select one game for next year's slate
  • If anyone wants to donate to the pool; even crap like copies of Jurassic Park, they are appreciated.

FAQ

Q: Will there be awards?
A: Hopefully some day.  At this moment the administrators feel there are plenty of contest awards as it is

Q: Can we play game x?
A: I've already set the schedule for the next couple years, but will do a poll at each season's end for the community to select a game themselves.  The overall winner will also get to select one game, with some stipulations (ie no Koei games, no Super Scope games, etc.)

Q: Why is the scoring set this way?
A: I've tried to balance rewarding the top players while also not making it impossible for newer/lower players to catch up.  We'll see how things go this year.

Q: Can I play in both games this month?
A: Yes

Q: Do I need to play in both games this month?
A: No

Q: Can I use emulators?
A: Yes, read the rules skinny

Hey guys! I'm used to playing in the NES contests, so I have a question. Using the save state on the cart is okay for ones that have it? Example: Donkey Kong Country save points. I did read the rules, but want to make sure as that varies from the NES contests (because the games played there tend to not have save states built-in). Thanks!

Yes you can save. The dkc comp is about completion percentage first. Time second

For street fighter 2 turbo, what about the speed settings? I'd say we should all play "turbo" not normal, but I honestly wouldn't care if people picked their own speed settings. It's not really an advantage, and some might be at a disadvantage playing at a wrong speed and not want to compete.

I haven't tested it yet, but the main reason it is on the docket is for a turbo competition. The speed will be dictated in the rules

Anything under 4 stars of speed on SF2 Turbo Hyperfighting is just too slow, but there is no advantage to play at a slower speed.
There would only be a difference if someone played Champion Edition mode rather than Turbo, as there are balancing changes between both, but that would be easily spotted due to palette colours difference.

Personally (more anecdotally and not aimed at the competion rules decisions), I've always much prefered Street Fighter II at "standard" or "classic" speed. Most of the upper turbo speeds just give the AI a larger window for cheap counters (which it is already heavy-handed with at upper difficulties), since the AI's reaction speed increases in direct proportion to game speed while the player's reaction speed stays the same. "Turbo" SF2 just always felt like a sloppy button-mash to me compared to the more thoughtful, rock-paper-scissors play of the classic game. Classic SF2 is probably my favorite fighting game of all time.

​But Super SF2 Turbo is the #1 choice in the SF tournament world, so what do I know. Apparently nothing.
