Each snupster makes two stages on mega maker

1 stage should be all about aesthetics and fun gameplay. Make as beautiful a stage as you can by meshing the tilesets with good mechanics and transitions. Go for a certain theme if that helps.

1 stage should be all about difficulty and length that is appropriate to Snupster content (No troll or Kaizo)

8 snupsters should be in the episode, 4 in standby and 4 actually playing.

One at a time the 4 snupsters in stand by group will give all of the other 4 snupsters that are in the playing group their 2 megamaker stages each. Then when all 8 stages are played, the 4 snupsters from the standby group switch into the playing group vice versa and play the other 4 snupsters created stages.

Additional: Just like they do in one of the challenges in masterchef, have the stages be named with anonymous ids, therefore nobody will know exactly who created each stage and as group have a vote at the end of each playing group session and rank the standings of each of the stages that were presented. Nobody should play their own created stages for that would defeat the purpose. that is why am suggesting 2 separate groups of 4’s.

It’s a lot of prep and maybe hard on a technical stand point filming setting up all those snupsters in the episode but it would be a win win for fans and the snupsters alike, me thinks.

Let’s expand out from Mega Man games. How’s this? Jet Speed Contra. I tried this myself and it’s possible. To add to the difficulty: infinite lives codes, infinite continues codes, and the Konami code are not allowed (still possible as tested by myself). The screen is able to keep up most of the time like Mega Man 3 did, but some minor glitching may occur. Oh, and one more thing. You have one hour to beat the game (STILL possible as tested by myself).

Leaf Shield only (with it staying in place around you as you walk). Use rom coding address 04E2 with value 01(04E2:01) to engage the Leaf Shield around Mega Man as he walks, probably with infinite weapon energy. Be careful if you hit an enemy with it that cannot be killed by the shield…bad things can happen. Buster for bosses immune to the Leaf Shield.

Special Weapons Only! (No cheat codes required)

– Racers can individually choose which Robot Master to start with.
– Play the stage as normal using buster.
– Once you obtain a Weapon that does damage (so picking up Balloon in MM4 doesn’t count for example) you are no longer allowed to use the buster for the rest of the game.
– Exception being bosses that only take damage from the buster.
– If you’re against an enemy/boss that does take damage from a weapon, but you don’t have it yet or you’re out of ammo, TOO BAD!
– Can pick-up weapon energy placed in stages/dropped by enemies/use M or W Tanks

*Optional: No grinding for weapon energy. Must die/game over if you get stuck due to lack of ammo.

**For Mega Man 8 (as if it would be picked, haha), Mega Ball does count, but only for the intro stage, and ONLY the stage of the first Robot Master you pick. No robot master can be defeated with all of Mega Balls ammo, and you don’t get the Rush Item Drop ability till the 2nd set of Robot Masters, so bustering the first boss is okay*

This challenge is trickier than it sounds.

Megaman 4 Meele

Here are some codes I made to activate melee mode in MM4:

Melee RIng

Adress: 469
Value: 1
Compare Value: B

Melee Ring EX: Just in the case somebody still think that’s not melee. This will make the ring boomerang last just for a couple of frames.

Adress: 469
Value: 1
Compare Value: deactivated

Bonus

Deactivate invincibility frames

Adress: 3C
Value: 0
Compare Value: deactivated

IMPORTANT NOTE

These codes only work on the accurate emulators such as Fceux and Mesen. I tested the codes on Nestopia and they didn’t work, at least not as intended. I strongly recommend Mesen, it’s the best of the two in my opinion.

Castlevania 1, Sub-Weapons%

– You may play normally and kill enemies with the whip until you gain any sub-weapon. Once you have one, you may only kill enemies with that sub-weapon.
– Switching a sub-weapon or keeping the one you have is up to you. As long as you have one, you don’t have to collect every new drop you see. You can stick with your choice for the entire game.
– You may use the whip at any time to destroy candles, blocks, or projectiles.
– There is no penalty if you accidentally hit an enemy with your whip without killing it.
– If you kill an enemy with the whip instead of a sub-weapon, you have to kill yourself as soon as possible.
– No subverting the rules. The intent is that the sub-weapons are to be your ONLY means of attack. No intentionally avoiding picking up a sub-weapon as an excuse to continue using the whip. No using the whip to whittle down an enemy’s health and using a sub-weapon on the final hit.
– Infinite lives codes are permitted.
– BEWARE THE STOPWATCH!

I know this isn’t on an emulator, but if you want something different, you can play Shovel knight like mega man. Entering PVZPEETF on the character name select makes it so that you wave infinite flare wand so that you have a mega buster esque weapon. If this makes it too easy, you can slow down the flare wand by entering SJPACXWH instead.

So, I propose playing through Shovel knight for an hour or so using only the flare wand (using a code), using down slashes and other moves if necessary.

Triple Random Single-Weapon Arena Race

I have a lot to say here. Sorry. The execution of this race is easy, but explaining the details is not.
– This race consists of completing single-weapon runs of the Arena three times over, and the weapon you’re stuck with during each of the three runs would be chosen at random. Each of the three weapons must be different. Normal and T.A.C./Copy are off-limits.
– Why three runs? Because one run could last as much as 30 minutes or as little as ten depending on your familiarity with the bosses and the weapon you’re stuck with. Three runs could span 90 minutes, a good episode length. If you don’t want to run longer than 90 minutes, you can set that as a time limit, and the one who reaches the furthest wins.
– How you randomize the weapons is up to you. You can set the three random weapons and decide the order you’ll use them beforehand, or set them one at a time at the start of each run. Or, better yet, get another Snupster who’s not racing to choose a weapon for you at the start of each run the way Candybars controlled the weapons you could use in the Mega Man 1 Forced Weapon Rotation episode. (That episode inspired this idea.)
– If you irretrievably lose your weapon, you have to die. You can have a save state prepared beforehand to jump back to the initial weapon room screen to save time, but you have to die and be sent to the failure screen for at least a few seconds so that everyone can clearly see the number of bosses you’ve defeated before you use the save state. This is for easy score-keeping.
– You can also use the save state to jump back to the initial weapon room screen after reaching the victory screen to start the next run quickly.
– Helpers are not allowed, except for Meta Knight, who is a special case. You must collect the sword to fight him, so bringing out a helper is mandatory in order to keep your weapon. Whether you keep the sword throughout the fight or immediately throw it away, dismiss the helper, and get your original weapon back is up to you. Regardless, the helper must be dismissed at the next intermission screen. Remember, don’t let the helper die or morph, or you’ll lose your weapon.
– If you lose your weapon on an intermission screen, go to the next boss and let it kill you so that you’re taken to the failure screen.
– You may use the Maxim Tomatoes that appear on the intermission screen.

That should cover all contingencies that could arise in this race. I apologize again for the long-winded block of text, but I wanted to try to cover all the bases. I hope this will be a fun challenge for you guys.

Insta-death in the first 3 “Mega Man” games. Since there is no Game Genie code for it, maybe changing the enemies to insta-kill Mega Man might be a possibly.

Rules:
– Buster only in the regular stages. Weapons are allowed afterwards.
– Lifeline on using a weakness can be used for certain bosses such as Quick Man and Shadow Man. Rust Jet + buster on Shadow Man is also allowed via lifeline.

Sending this idea again, just in case.

Well my suggestion is quite similar to OtherScott’s, but with some differences.
It’s a buster-prohibited run.
The racers get infinite ammo on all weapons and unlock them all with a cheat code.
If anyone uses the buster, they have to die and restart.
If none of the weapons work, then the buster is allowed, but no charge shots, if possible.

I’m not sure if anyone done this in Mega Man 2 – 10 minus Mega Man 8 for stage select layout. Can you guys do an these games in a star pattern with buster only up till wily stages? Example from Mega Man 3 is Snake man, Shadow man, Hard man, Needle man, Magnet man, Spark man, Top man, then Gemini man. This is 1 of 8 ways to be done per game not including the reverse. You may pick the game and series type.

*MM10 Hard Protoman Jump with Charge shot only* Must have dlc for protoman. The catch is that You have to jump and then release charge shot, don’t just release the shot without jumping first.
