SMBX $100 PRIZE CHALLENGE

Postby Knux » Wed Apr 03, 2019 12:41 pm

This challenge will require you to succesfully complete The Great Empire X in its full entirety, this includes all ___* stars, without a single death.

In order to prove that this entries are legitimate, you MUST live stream the entire event. it does not have to be in one sitting, so you can take breaks and complete it over a long period of time, but the key here is to survive as if you were on your last life. Absolutely no cheats must be used at any point in the stream (which will be analysed once completed - if completed - implying anyone is daft enough to attempt this)

Why? Well, I don't believe anyone will actually be able to do this. Sure, you get some INSANE peeps who can speedrun anything without a scratch, but this episode is a nightmare. Purposely designed to fall into the kiazo category, The Great Empire X is no easy feat. Not helped by the fact it's also one of the longest SMBX episodes in existence, at least from what I've seen.

Anyone who can do this will recieve a $100 prize. I do not have a paypal account atm but I will register one if someone completes this challenge.

Good luck - for anyone willing to try this!

*spoiler for how many stars there are
Spoiler: show
There are 300 stars in this episode.

This will be about as easy as the 14/15 puzzle.

and doesn't TGEX have like just a few dozen levels?

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

It's pretty funny that a famous Geometry Dash creator recently did something similar, basically he made a crappy and frustrating level and offered 100 dollars to record and beat it

With the generous estimate of 5 minutes per star, thus 12 stars per hour, 120 in 10 hours, and 300 in 25, this would be about $4 per hour on a theoretical perfect run that adheres to this estimate (now to factor in load times and deaths...).
Let's just say if someone were to do this, money wouldn't be the incentive. Masochism? Sure.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

No creativeness.

Never released an episode anyway.

Never plan to right now, but maybe in the future.

Essentially, this can be done over multiple livestreams.
Therefore, what I thought was the best possible way to accomplish this was to practice each individual level in the editor to the point, I could livestream the actual level and get a deathless run of each level since there's nothing against that. Then end that sitting for level 1 and repeat for every level. Otherwise, I don't think this is worth my time as I have cubital nerve tunnel issues as of right now

Knux are you expecting a Korean from E-Sports to do this because I don't think regular humans are capable of doing that.

Here we are saying how stupid and impossible this task is. And then some point later Eclipsed or Mechdragon goes ahead and complete this venture proving us all wrong.
