Hi!
My name is Kepala Monyet and (obviously) I am new to the website.

Introduction.
I first knew of your website through your YouTube channel.
- Of course when you type in "Longplay" that's the #1 related search item.

Sharing experiences.
For myself, I always felt like I wanted to share my childhood gaming experience with others.
That's why I started recording my games, the only thing I had back then was a ION VCR2PC add-on.
Where I could hookup the console to the PC through USB.
Now I just record and upload 'em through PC.

I enjoy the games I'm playing.
Longplay is more of my thing, where there's gameplay with mistakes, deaths, failures and so on.
Sometimes with commentary. Also Speedrun (a few games) and highlights.
Even with games that I myself have failed to finish (Longplay with Game Over screen at the end).

PAL Region (Europe)
Also I experienced these games through the PAL region in Europe.
Where games were displayed in 4:3 on 50Hz (50fps?)

YouTube Channel "Kepala Monyet" (https://www.youtube.com/KepalaMonyet)
With longplays I noticed a lot of people do this, naturally.
What I do to differentiate myself from other longplays is I upload these videos:

- in 1080p 60fps for NTSC or in 1080p 50fps for PAL
- For console games I use "CRT-filter" with "curvature" like the screen was back in the day.
- For Gameboy games I actually make it look like an original Game Boy.

For example:
Super Mario Bros (Series) Longplay (PAL)
- https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...jwPnUN_cnP

- Mega Man (Franchise) Longplays (PAL & NTSC)
- https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...GfDtD6ZJpE

Game Boy Memories (Longplays)
- https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...HP5SeJthkW

Edit: New gameplay added!
Donkey Kong Country (Series) Longplay
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...3vaJ45R2IL
Super Nintendo & Game Boy (Vanilla/Color/Advance)

End of introduction!
Hope some of you guys like my content.
If I can contribute to the community in any way, please let me know.

if you wish to submit longplays you can't do them in 1080p, original resolution of game depending on console or pc game and original framerate
no filters or anything
If I can't be the best then I certainly won't be the worst.

Okay, got it!

Reasons why I upload in 1080p60fps and shades/overlays is that I want the gameplay to be preserved for historical reasons and also entertainment purposes.

Show the games how they were "visually" (as I experienced them,) as opposed to how the games were "technically".

Longplays.org Rules.
I understand when uploading a longplay through this website it needs to be native fps, resolution and unfiltered.

Thank you for the heads-up!

Quick question.
Is there a section on this website where people are interested in new longplays?

I added a new Donkey Kong Country playlist I'm working on.
Edited in the introduction section.

Obviously "still working on" because I also still need to play the games I want to record.

Longplays w/o commentary, Super Nintendo and Game Boy (Vanilla/Color/Advance) longplays will be added as soon as I'm finished recording a session.

Also, Spazbo4, thanks for your link.
