Hi Martin,

A great collection of consoles, I also have a similar list, but lacking a bit on the Sega side also as I leaned more towards Nintendo.

How long have you played Super Mario Kart for on snes?

I think I got it in around 1993 but loaned it to someone and never got it back. Got it again about 4 or 5 years ago but couldn't get anywhere near my old Rainbow Road times. Someone out there may have my old cartridge with the 1:35 times on it! :lol:

1'35" is a very good time, did you use Bowser/D.K.Jr? It would land at about 35th in the UK, but as you know there is quite tight competition on Rainbow Road as it was a favourite track to many. Il send you a PM a bit later about the Time Trial World Rankings.

Didn't think it would be that good! Yeah I used DK jr after getting to know the track with Koopa first.
Haven't got under 1:40 with my current cart but you've mad me think about having another go at it

Hey there, I'm StiGGy

Been reading/collecting RG mag since Issue 1 and thought it about time I registered.

I have a modest collection of older puters, my fav at the mo being my Vectrex/72-1 multicart. Partly through building my first Mame cab although to be honest, I've been saying that for years and never got round to finishing it off.



I'm also a keen photographer and usually seen lurking around the various retro gaming events with camera in one hand and a joystick in the other. Some of my image sets have been uploaded to CGEU galleries.

Take care

StiGGy

Cool, try get a full timeset on the other tracks and get back to me on PM. I might have already sent you some links to the rankings and stuff but cant remember... let me know if not.

How do, Bosker :) Only just noticed you'd posted in this thread.

I do believe we've met elsewhere. Welcome to RG. :)
