Nintendo 64 Forever 1000th Member Giveaway

Hey all :D

For the Nintendo 64 Forever 1000th member celebrations (old news I know -_- ) I would like to give a member the chance at winning the newly created N64 Pro Controller.



The challenge goes as follows: (Please read fully)

- Each few days I will post a picture of my best time on a track selected from Mario Kart 64 (see below)
- You must beat my time on every track to even qualify
- If another member has a better time than me, you must beat that also >:-]
- Wait until I have posted the next challenge before posting pictures of times
- You must post a picture of your time as proof.
- Real hardware must be used, no emulation, no cheats!
- You must have at least 20 posts to enter
- Sadly postage costs a lot these days, you must be willing to cover any postage costs to send the controller
- The competition will run until 12:00am GMT UK 27th January 2013

And finally the person who comes out with the best times for each track wins the controller.

Clarky, this is fantastic contest (and quite a challenge)! I cant wait to play along after my stupid thumb heals. But as I already have been given a Clarky original, I plan to play along for the challenge and not the amazing reward.

Thanks bluedog. :)

Such a low turnout though. 186 views and just one post :-/

Is the challenge to hard?
Are there too many games on the list?
Is the member post count set to high to participate?
Or is the item just something people aren't interested in?

I'd love to, but i'm missing one of those games on the list :( If i can get hold of it in time i might make a go of it.

Is there a deadline for each game?

one hell of a giveaway. the idea is brilliant and doesnt only relate on luck of being picked in x amount of person. it does require skills just like the given controller. im missing SK1 so i cant fully enter but i might post MK64 time if i get some free play time.

good luck to everyone. this is gonna be fun to watch !

Great going guys :yeah: It's nice to see the 2 minute marker point wasn't hard to beat :lol:

I've amended the rules slightly:

- You now only need 20 posts to partake
- I've reduced the number of games and swapped F-Zero for Diddy Kong Racing

I'll be honest and say that I kinda figured the games list my be difficult to get right as not all will own each game. I have tried to make up the games list with the more popular common games that everyone might own. Hopefully the amendment might suit all.

I will be posting the next challenge this evening :yeah:

I did have a bash and I can not get any faster then 1:07. Just thought I would try for a laugh but 1:01 is scary fast, well done. I have no interest for the controller but just thought I would play along.

Love the mario kart aspect of this challenge! One of my favorites, especially the time trials trying to beat buddies scores. Anyway heres what I believe to be my best, dont think I could do much better:

I got 34.22 seconds, but cant seem to get a picture to upload :-/ , is there no way to just pull one off your computer do you have to use the URL?

I'm currently deciding on what challenge to set in Mario 64 at the moment but I should hopefully have something posted by the close of tomorrow.

Nice work guys!! I think I need to spend a bit more time on setting the benchmark for each challenge lol

you should definitely go with the fastest time down that secret course on the 2nd floor through the peach stain-glass window :yeah: although you can cheat and jump down i believe

Question, do we have to beat every challenge or just have the most best scores? I sadly don't have goldeneye or 1080. I'll do my best for the other 3 though, thanks for giving this away for free btw Clarky, really generous.
Heres my Mario Kart 64 entry, 35"88 gonna try and buy a copy of goldeneye sometime this week and play through the game. Didn't add the picture oops hahaha Posted Image

Doesn't the PAL mario kart run slower than the NTSC though?

Same for 1080 and mario 64.
