I posted this at work (hey, I'm on my lunch break!) so I'll add screenshots and update the season standings when I get home.

The Yellow Planet seems just a bit easier than the other ones.

Wow that 2 week thing really tossed me off. I turned on my Wii and saw notes to myself in my email, so much for my shatterhand score. It sucked anyway. This is an amazing game, Im afraid the issue with shatterhand was the number of people that owned it more than anything. Im a purist myself not to big a fan of emulators. Ill see if i can dig this one up I could have sworn I owned it.

The key is to rescue the people you need for what planets. Its played alot like megaman. The ship itself is hell on wheels so be warned!

I was wondering where the heck you disappeared to.

And Shatterhand is awesome.

I got to 16,600 on the Green Planet but there's no way to get a screenshot. Not sure what to do about that...

My score is 53,400. That was after being very careful, getting everyone of my team back, and then lost my last man right after.
Remember guys its beyond important to have the right people for the right stages, and make sure the hearts go to who they need to go to. I generally found my self playing bucky the most for normal/high jumps and combat, I used the robot for a gap of any distance. Good luck guys!

*edit to add more info*
Remember that everyones weapons do different damage not just fire in different ways. Consider buckys weapons to be a base of 1. I think the robots hit for around .75. I will do some research and try and finish this later

My emulator seems to not be loading the ROMS I recently downloaded. I'm using FCEUX. Does anyone recommend a different one?

There's 2 different emulators i use to emulate the NES. FCEU096WIN and MESS. You'll need the nes_disksys bios ROM for MESS. :)

Sorry. I'll get on it tonight. We're up to 1993 now, so the choices are starting to thin out.

I was tempted to pick that one, but I didn't.

I haven't had time to create the thread yet, but the game for 1993 is going to be Kirby's Adventure. Yeah, the game is a little bit on the kiddie side and there is a lot of pink everywhere, but it's a really good game, so give it a chance.
