Its too much of a bother to PM all 5 people every time one person finds something out. Plus, with AIM or skype, we can have set times where we all meet up and talk about stuff. Sooooo, anyone interested?
You know I'm up for it! :) Just not specifically right at this very moment, since I'm kind of on a challenge-break. (My 151 solos have my brain fried)

    @Syd: But, but, I love my AIM! I know how to navigate it so well and we've grown up together! I don't wanna move on!

    In all seriousness, though, I'd be perfectly fine with getting a MSN. I think I might have one maybe at some point, I could probably remember the username and password since I only have like 3 usernames and 3 passwords ever. Honestly, its whatever the most people want.

    So, RHI, jespoke, jd, chaos, what do you guys think? What do you guys use the most?

      I think that msn might be better for all involved, as I use Skype with my real identity, and not a anonymous one. I actually wouldn't have a problem using skype for this, but others might

      Anyway, my skype is broken right now, so msn would be the way to go for me right now anyway, lol.

      also Myrrhman, I have aim as well, since I started using the internet with AOL way back when dinos roamed the earth I was a kid with my parents - my mom still uses AOL! (not AOL online, the actual program, with the browser and everything!) However, I haven't used it since the open browsers started coming on strong.

      I really don't see much difference between one IM service and the other (besides Skype, which is a whole other animal), but more people have msn then something like aim, so...

      And I guess I'm a member of Alpha Fan now.

        MSN or Skype will work for me too. I fixed your little crossed out bit. It sounds like we're going to do MSN, then!

        In other news, my personal "Ultimate Catch 'em All" Challenge is going aight. Just beat Falkner with a Pidgey and Totodile. I'm so pumped to get the first two of my party, Abra and Machop. then all i'll need is a scyther

        Nothing wrong with having both. I actually have both. Hell, I have two AIMs (one was made to trick a friend though, actually lol). I just didn't have as many people on AIM, and I got MSN first, and I didn't like the lack of customization with AIM. Everything about it just felt...old. Only people I know irl seem to use it. idk what that's about. But yeah, I just never use AIM anymore, because more people have MSN, and I just generally like it better.

          It happened. I broke down and got it. I am now MSN-capable.

          Also, having a male abra mate with a female machop is fun, because when it hatches, I have two Pokemon with all 3 punches.

            Basically. Trying to beat the word record for the fastest time beating...whatever game you're trying to beat the record for, pretty much. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I'm only good at the weird, obscure challenges.

              Why, Silver, of course.

              Yeah, you all kinds of nailed it. We're getting Pokecommunity into Guinness Book of World Records: Video Game Edition.

              So, who's pumped for the Get Together event?

              Also, just chiming in to say that the current record for Red is 1:59.

              Yeah, the Speed Demos Archive has videos of all the speed runs. Red/Blue is 1:59 segmented and 2:39 without saving. Yellow is 2:28 single segment, but there's no segmented video up there. R/S has a segmented but no single run.

              As far as I know, Emerald is not on the site, nor are any Gen IV games.

              With this whole Project Alpha Fan thing, is it meant to be how fast you can do it in the real world, or how much game time you use, or are you allowed to use cheating programs to make the game go faster?

              no speeding, no cheating, and in-game time is the benchmark. Ofc, I am (somewhat) guessing here. Myrrh is the guy who formed the project, so he would know better.

                Actually, I wasn't the person that originally formed Project Alpha Fan. ChrisTom was, although I did become one of the probable two main guys for this one, and the only one that tried to revive it and stuff.

                But jd is right. Guinness: VG goes by in game times for speed runs, and you aren't allowed to use any cheating/hacking/speeding devices. I think that using an emulator is possibly all right still, but using the actual cartridge would be much easier honestly. We can still do practice runs on the emulators and stuff, and when we're ready for the final showing, we can just have one person use the actual cartridge. I'm sure one of us will have it. I'm actually pretty sure that one of my friends has a copy of Red that I can borrow.

                I was wondering because I saw this one guy using some cheat device which pretty much cut down all the time there. Speeding through all the menus and text and things like that.

                  I thought it would be fun to try some other generations too, though controlling running shoes and mach bikes will be extremely hard... I have a silver with working battery to show that off if we make it

                  I'd like to think that I'm pretty good at controlling Running Shoes and Mach Bikes. xD

                  In other news, I think I'm actually going to resume doing some challenges tomorrow. Maybe get back to my 151 solos? :)

                  I just accidentally deleted my Pearl save, so now I want to do a challenge on it. Does anyone have any ideas for it?

                  Yeah, I looked at the Sapphire run they have on the speed site, and he using the Mach Bike everywhere...ended up getting under two hours gametime, although if you read his notes, it took forever at certain places waiting for a critical hit or something, lol. And I have a working Blue cartridge, although I wonder how we are supposed to get a video of it.

                    Myrrh, I'm in the mood for Alpha, is it R/B/Y only or are we doing every Gen?

                    I got have a MSN, but I only use it when I resister to other Forums :V

                    Don't have a Skype though, going to though if I need to do it for the Alpha Fan.

                    EDIT: iirc no one done a (official) Speed Run of Gen III - Gen V, so PC can be the first wielder of the record.

                        My thinking is that we start with Blue, get really good with the process of doing Alpha Fan, and then once we for sure know what we're doing, we move on to other generations. I think we all agree that 1st Generation would be the easiest to do (no natures, no running shoes/Mach Bike, etc.)

                        Paragraph 1: See above
                        Paragraph 2-3: I think we're all going to use MSN. That seemed to be the most viable for everyone. VM/PM me your MSN email and I'll add you up.
                        Paragraph 4: See above. If nobody has set a record this long since the game has been out, I'm sure it can wait a bit longer. And plus, if we do it right, not only will we have the first record, but we'll have the record for a very, very long time.

                        I agree. If everyone gets into this MSN group that I made, we can do it there. I was thinking of trying to have scheduled times that we can all meet. Otherwise... Actually, you know what? I have a better idea. Hold on a sec.

                        I'd like permission to reboot the Anime Challenge as the Character Challenge. The Anime Challenge is currently neglected, and by adding in other mediums, may see more, continuous traffic.
