First day of my challenge has officially started. To start things off right, I was able to beat all 3 Super Mario Bros games and had enough time left to defeat Dr. Wily once too! Just so that no one can call me a liar I decided to capture videos of each and every game I'm beating. I'll post screen shots of the ending screens on my blog here. The videos are really only for my own benefit, unless someone needs some additional proof of the game being finished.

I'm finding my playing is a lot sloppier when playing on the computer, as opposed to on a TV. The response feels pretty good (although there were a couple times when the video lagged for a few seconds and caused me to run down a pit or into an enemy) so it must just be a mental block or something. Hopefully I'll get used to it, because I should have had enough time for at least one more game in this sitting. I'm also finding that some things are not always showing up on the computer monitor. For example, ducking down in SMB 2 you normally flash after a while, the characters didnt flash and I just had to guess when they were charged for a super jump. Also Dr. Wily and a couple other bosses were even harder than normal because only some of their bullets were clearly visable and would often "blink" on and off the screen.

These arnt huge issues when playing games I'm familiar with, but when I get to uncharted territory its going to make things very difficult. Does this have something to do with the monitor being an LCD screen? Is there something I can do to remedy this issue?

Anyway here are tonights screen shots and tomorrow I'm looking forward to A LOT more Mega Man!!

Wow, 4 already?  Great job!  I think you'll have no problem accomplishing your goal.  You can also submit these end screens to the database.  Cheesy
 
@blcklblskt:
I was going to mention that as well.
Try adjusting the emulator settings. There are some settings that can cause problems, likely due to V-sync.
 
@blcklblskt - I'm trying to load as many as I can right now in case something comes up and I need to take a hiatus.

@Shadow - I'm not using an emulator. I'm playing on the original hardware with my video capture hardware/software. What kind of settings would I need to tinker with?


 
@Crabmaster2000:
I'll hook mine up and take a shot at it. You may need to reduce the bitrate to help out.
 
@Shadow - Thanks I appreciate that!
 
@blcklblskt: We can submit end screens?  I didn't know that...
