There shall be no exceptions made for allowing people to submit times set using a ROM. Any times that are found to have been set using a ROM will be deleted.
2. The use of cheat devices such as Action Replay, Game Genie, ect. are forbidden on the ladder. Restore points on the WiiU VC are not to be misused*. If it is suspected that any cheat devices have been used and/or restore points have been misused, that player will have their times removed from the ladder.
3. Multiple accounts for the same player are not allowed, neither are joint accounts.
4. On the NTSC version of the game (This rule does not apply to the PAL version), pausing during the middle of a run is not allowed. If it is discoverd that a run had the pause menu activated, that time will be subject to deletion. The reason for this rule is explained in greater detail here.This rule only applies to times set after 5 November 2014.
5. Finally, NO CHEATING of any kind will be tolerated. If you are found to be cheating, it will result in immediate removal of your times from the SNES ladder. Any other times you have submitted to FZC will also be subject to removal.
*Restore points may only be used to attempt fast laps and for infinite lives in Grand Prix mode. This means you can set a restore point beforeentering a fast lap or you can set a restore point beforethe timer in a five lap race starts. Misuse of restore points constitutes as using a restore point after entering a fast lap or after the timer of a five lap race starts. Even if a restore point is activated in only the first frame of the fast lap or five lap, your time will be removed, no exceptions. If a player is found abusing the restore point mechanic, their times will be subject to immediate removal from the ladder.
