SUBMISSION RULES & GUIDELINES:
See that you fill out the form correctly with as much info as possible, this will make it easier for us.
You will have to join the Discord before the submission deadline passes, The discord will be the main place for interaction before and during the event.
For Console submission you have to be able to stream through OBS or similar software (xsplit et.c) so sadly we will have to reject any submission streamed directly from Console.
There is a limit of submissions per runner of 5, and a maximum of 3 categories per game
All submissions require your own video. Either your PB-Run or a good run with informative commentary.
Be sure to state your availability as clearly as you can (preferably in BST) in your submission comment. The shorter the availability window are, the harder it is for us to make this work.
Usage of Face Camera is ideally preferred for the run during the marathon. We will take submissions of runs without camera as well but we would like you to use one if you can. If you cannot use a camera, a photo to fill-in the webcam spot will be required.
Emulator runs are allowed as long as emulator is not banned. (this means that games that hide emulator from the leaderboard but don't ban them are also allowed)
If you want to add donation incentives for your run we would be more than happy, just be sure to mention it in your submission or contact us directly.
Your Responsibilities: Be prepared, if problems arise please let any of the staff know in good time (DM in Discord to any of the staff members) so we can attend to the issues, act decently (we have no problem with you swearing or anything, just don't be a jerk & refrain from talking politics), keep an eye on the schedule if any changes will occur (also check Discord from time to time for the same reasons), Be ready for your run before the previous one ends.
If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact any of the staff members!
