The "FMG version" appears to be one of those very common bootleg versions with some tiles changed that were usually seem in markets like Brazil.
From what I have seen here, the only difference is colours and the Nintendo name changed to FMG during the races.

Using that version will be accepted.

This is one of the toughest games that I've ever played. It makes Rad Racer look like Fisher Price Racing. Everybody else must be having a similar experience lol.

 

I finally got through the third race in skill 3 and got maybe halfway through the second lap of race 4 when I choked and rear ended a car on a turn. Starting to feel possible to see the final race. 

The difficulty is misleading though. This is basically a game with 15 levels and we are starting on level 11. In that respect, rad racer 2 would have seemed near impossible if you had started on race 6 or 7. You really have to work your skills up on the earlier levels.

Is anyone else playing this game besides me rich, and michael? Is @Richardhead  making his 2021 debut to support the racing circuit that @Jeevanis too prissy to  dive into? If so, thanks man!  Wjat does FMG stand for? Did @Bearcat-Dougsell his nes to get money for hooters gift certificates? Is @bertsampsongoing to play for 11 minutes and score 50k? Is @PIIalready through level 5, but holding his score? Is @0xDEAFC0DEresearching the 416 km/h glitch?

If you touch another car even slightly you blow up? No thankssss. Glad I got the cart from fcgamer though!

Perhaps next year we should forego having the mods take the time to schedule a year full of challenging games. Just alternate weeks between color a dinosaur and smb3. And smb3 may still be hard for some, so lets allow continues. Remove bans on game genie and other cheats as well, or maybe just let people make up whatever scores they would like to submit. 

Im far from bert sampson and Ive almost managed to reach the final level this early in the week. Even setting aside the competitive aspect, this game actually gets really fun if you put some time in to get the basics down.

Im far from bert sampson and Ive almost managed to reach the final level in two nights of mild effort. Even setting aside the competitive aspect, this game actually gets really fun if you put some time in to get the basics down. 

Cool.

na, I liked some of the games lol, I just don't have as much time to dedicate to this one as I really fell in love with paper mario.  also, lots of games were fun prior to this.  Antarctic adventure and quite a few others.  if I'm honest I didn't like smb3, sorry forgot to add for the contest lol

Antarctic adventure

I had never played that and it was badass. That was a really fun week. More famicom we play, closer I get to buying one and a handful of carts. Is this your first time playing thru paper mario? 

@a3quit4s , sorry if my overly sarcastic post rubbed you the wrong way. It was meant to be funny, but it was too sarcastic and shouldnt have been directed at you or anyone else specifically

I understand now why the colors change in this game.  It's to keep the player awake while starting over and over and over on skill level 3.

All the other dogs represent every other racing game ever made.  Then comes Droopy/F1 Racer...

Clever, but season is more than half over and youve yet to submit a score on either console. I know you said you were retiring, but your thing is to say your retiring, but not actually retire. I shouldn't have to explain your thing to you. Its YOUR thing.

Not gonna lie, using my own logic against me does make for a solid argument.

      Hello and welcome, players!
      Be prepared, for this week you will have to rely on your fists, feet, knifes and machine guns to make through P.O.W.!
      This week will decide who will claim the crown to the Beat 'em up genre, proving they are the best bare hand fighter at VGS!
      @mbd39 currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend with 22 points, Krunch is creeping really close to both of them with 21 points.
      The three of them are the only ones with a chance to claim the title!
      So, without further ado, here's the rules
      Play until Game Over No point racking If you score less than 20,000 points, be ready to take your picture at the Game Over screen (it doesn’t stay up long) If you score more than 20,000 points, start a new game to get your score Each extra life remaining after beating the game adds 5000 points to your score. Highest score wins GENRE: Beat ‘Em Up
      The contest ends Sunday, 10/10/21 at midnight Brasilia time. Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun

      Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!
      To decide who will wear the laurels and claim the fame of being the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Sports champion, we have one epic game of brutal action, where basketball meets street brawling!
      ARE YOU READY FOR Nekketsu Street Basketball?
      The rules are below:
      Pick battle mode (2nd option in the game) Pick 1P mode Pick Nekketsu as your team (first team in the screen) Pick US Navy as your opponent (second team in the screen) Pick the VEGAS stage to play on (second stage to the left, with the slot machines icon) Take your picture at the end of the match. Highest score difference for the Nekketsu team wins Participation: Beat the second team
      @0xDEAFC0DEhas a very comfortable 4 points lead over @NESfiend, who is the only who can challenge him for the Sports title this year.
      For Nesfiend to win, he needs to win this week and hope @0xDEAFC0DE doesn't score over 6th place, since he will be tied on most wins, but loses on the 2nd tie breaker, most 2nd places.
      Will he be able to pull such a miracle to claim the crown? Time will tell!
      The contest ends Sunday, 09/26/21 at midnight Brasilia time.
