As long as it's a challenge that people would be drawn to, it's okay to try and post, right?

And for the name? Maybe Challenge your fears? I don't know if it's nice. I just like the sound of it *_*

    Yeah, Challenge Your Fears sounds great! I'll post it tomorrow, unless, of course, someone else wants to post it for me. I'm fine either way. Just be sure to credit me for the idea if you do post it for me!

      I'll participate, when I could. I'm mostly scared of heights, so there will be a lot of flying Pokemon on my team.

        I don't have a DS so can not do the ultimate challenges, does anyone know of an emulator that both works and runs at a good speed?

        I don't use emulators myself anymore because I prefer playing Pokemon on the go, but VisualBoyAdvance is a great emulator.

          Desmume is the best quality one although I use no$gba combined with no$zoomer because it's faster.

            I use Desmume. You can configure it to work faster.
            The only issue with No$GBA from what I've been told is that the project got abbandoned by its creator so it's kind of outdated.
            Besides, there's a version of Desmume out there that enables wi-fi (that's what I'm using)

            Oh and happy birthday, Necrum! ^-^

              I have decided that doing a challenge based on Bioshock is just gonna wind up a repeat of Vault Hunter's challenge, and rather than do the same thing over again, I decided to do something I think will be more interesting. I honestly don't know how many people here are familiar with the surprise hit indie game, The Binding of Isaac, but I believe I can effectively translate elements of the game into a challenge that will be very unique, fun, and interesting. The Binding of Isaac is the game from which my current theme is from. But since my last challenge based on a video game wasn't entirely successful (although there has been some recent interest) I figured I would pitch the idea here first. Here's a video of some gameplay, so you can get an idea of what I'm working with.

              WARNING: This game is kinda violent and contains some questionable religious content! If you are sensitive to such things do not watch this video!

                For the Isaac challenge, how about you play the game, and the first six items you get, translates into the pokemon you use. Like a strength item lets you have a high attacking pokemon, an item that lets you walk over pits is a flying type, etc. If you die before six powerups, you can only use the amount of pokemon to items you have.

                The game isn't free, I can't ask people to buy it just to play the challenge (even though it's super cheap) no one would sign up. Anyway, I have a fair idea of how things are gonna be, I'm mostly scouting for interest at this point.

                I more looking at translating some of the gameplay elements into ways to alter the experience of Pokemon rather than having it just be, "This item = this type of Pokemon". It will be complex but in a fun way as opposed to The Vault Hunter's challenge which was overly complicated in that it required some research in order to play.

                  I would love to play the fears challenge. There seems to be a slight problem with PC though, every time I try to load the website my laptop crashes for like 5 minutes. It hasn't happened with any other site yet. Any clues on how to fix?

                  Try asking in cq&f. It's up in those first three forums. You'll attract more help asking in there than here.

                      I've been watching, hearing him talk to himself is hilarious at times, hehe.

                      All kidding aside, Myrrhman, you've really done a nice job so far. Looking forward to next week, and seeing a complete run of Stadium 2. I mostly watch the recordings since you streams really early for me as I am on the west coast. 10am-noon EST every weekday for the most part, at http://www.twitch.tv/myrrhman23. The nice thing about TwitchTV is that if you miss a stream, the recordings are there!

                      Kinda wish I was able to watch the stream live more often, I could have helped you save some time in Silver. I have never played either of the Stadium games at all though. Maybe I should see if I can emulate it...
