The RARE FPS Rankings (GoldenEye Plus Perfect Dark)
A Jon Barber Supersite, it lists the total First Person
Shooter times of players who compete in GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. The catch is
that you must be ranked inside the Top 75 (now 100) of each game (now in both
time and points) to be placed here. Not many players achieve this. At this time
only 24 make the list with another 7 qualifying but having been excluded for
The RARE FPS Speed Run Challenge Rankings
Page listing results of The Elite's Agent and 00 Agent
completion challenge of June 2004. Contains Rankings for all charts and some
historical information aswell. Organised by Derek Clark and run by me.
The GoldenEye & Perfect Dark Clubs
Long-standing members will remember the way Paragon used
to speak in rhapsody of being the first to complete each PD stage in under four
minutes mission time. I know not whether he was the first, but he certainly did
achieve it! Others have, too. So this page commemorates the effort of those who
reduced all stage times to below important barriers. Apart from the coveted five
and four minute barriers for GE and PD respectively, there are also charts for
the revered 4:30 and 3:30 barriers in those respective games. Another page run
by yours truly.
The Perfect Dark Firing Range Leagues
The Perfect Dark Firing Range
Gold -- Silver -- Bronze
So, you've managed to get all the Bronze, Silver and Gold
medals for every gun? What's your best time for DY357-LX Gold??? Dirk Olson (Darklich)
ran a WR and Rankings page for every gun on all three difficulties. Since that stopped
being active, Nathan and Nicholas organised one for the N64HS.
The Perfect Dark Gadget Training Room
PD Gadget Training Records
A similar page listing all the best times for testing
Gadgets such as the CamSpy and Night Vision Goggles was run by Greg Lavery
(CaptZeebo). After also passing into obscurity Nathan and Nicholas revived it.
The Perfect Dark Hologram Training Room
PD Holo World Records
Apparently inactive and not being run by anybody (though
originally by Greg Lavery), another page of the same sort listing times for the
challenges in the Holo Training Room. Another N64HS-revived page.
The Perfect Dark Combat Simulation Leagues
Class A -- Class B -- Class C
Class A -- Class B -- Class C
An investment originally run by myself and now updated by
Nicholas Harvey along with the rest of the N64HS, which lists players' statistics
for the Combat Simulation. If you have a Title between 1 and 5, go to Class A. If
between 6 and 10, Class B. If between 10 and 15, Class C. If below 15, you
haven't really been trying very hard!
The Perfect Dark Combat Simulator Challenge Elite
Maintained and updated by DarkWrath, Master8327 and
OctoInky, this page contains Top 10 times, Point and Time Rankings, WR Holders
and Past Champions tables. It lists the best times for all 30 Challenges in the
Perfect Dark Combat Simulator.
The Perfect Dark Cheater's League
Run by Luke Taylor (PerfectSky) and Brian King (PerfectlyDarkOne),
it features links to a Bulletin Board, a Roster, and a Speed Guide. It has WR
tables, point and time Rankings, and World Record Leaders tables.
The GoldenEye Licensed To Kill League
Now run by Bryan Youse (originally started by Greg Lavery),
it features Top time tables for all 20 levels, including the recently conquered
Surface 1 and Streets. In this League's settings, if you get shot once, you're a
goner. It's got more than 50 competitors and includes Total Times, Point
Rankings, and a difficulty calculator for each level.
The Perfect Dark Licensed To Kill League
Perfect Dark :: License To Kill
Now maintained by Victor Lima (originally run jointly by
Jon Barber (Ngamer), Chris Rayola (ExpertGamer64) and Greg Lavery, it follows
the same principles as the GoldenEye page. It has some of the same stuff: a WR
table and a Top time listing.
The GoldenEye Turbo Cheat Rankings
Many players have wondered how fast Dam Agent can be done
with the Turbo cheat enabled, so here's the chance to find out! Greg Lavery runs
this page listing Top times for all levels on all difficulties (except LTK),
Points and Times Rankings, and World Record Leaders.
The GoldenEye & Perfect Dark Pointless Times
Brought about through the efforts of Jon Barber and Wouter
Jansen, this lists the current times you'll need to achieve if you even want to
get 1 point in either of the Elite's two main Rankings. It also lists Difficulty
Total, Game Total and consequently RARE Total Times.
The Elite's Own Minesweeper Rivalry
Many people have spent sleepless nights in front of this wretched but nonetheless addictive low-tech game. This Rivalry based Rankings page set up by myself lists the times of many Elite members. A Rivalry based on what was on the "Minesweeper! (again)" thread in the General Chat section of the MB at that time.
Rivalries & Related Pages
THE GoldenEye Rivalry
A bout between nine of the GoldenEye Elite's most
prolifically PRing top players. Around the point which this page was created by
Greg Lavery, these players were all within the same 100 second total. It has
spread out a little more now, but is still updated regularly and contains all
the qualitative sections found in the GoldenEye Elite Rankings themselves.
Wouter Jansen Vs. Randy Buikema
There was once a time (though it may sound difficult to
fathom) that the great w00ter's #1 spot in GE was under threat by Randy Buikema
(Discombobulator). Disco came within 15 seconds of Wouter's total time if I
recall correctly. This two-man Rivalry was established, amongst other reasons,
so that players could quickly and easily see where these two masters won and
lost against each other throughout the boards. It's a little outdated now, but
in its suspended form, is a valuable piece of Elite history nonetheless.
Elite Sites Presented In Different Languages
English -- Français -- Português
Basically for everyone's convenience, The Elite's French
members set up a French mirror of The Elite and update it regularly and present
it all in French. It's a pretty neat idea actually. Don't bother clicking the
English link because it's just The Elite (unless you didn't just come
from there). The Spanish link is the Brazilian Nintendo Rankings for different
systems but mostly N64, featuring both GoldenEye and Perfect Dark, and, alas,
GoldenEye Elite Rankings & Rivalries by Country
Australia -- Brazil -- Françophone
It's obvious that The Elite is made up of players
representing many different countries, and some of them have now got their own
Rivalries, so that everyone can see how well they stack up against their own
countrymen. There probably exist more of these but for now those are all I can
Perfect Dark Elite Rankings & Rivalries by Country
Australia -- Brazil -- Québécoise -- Française -- Françophone
With, now, over 300 players in the PD Elite Rankings, it
can be difficult for any one player to evaluate their strength. That's what
profiles are for, but many players like to see how they do compared to those in
their country. On occasion, these groups form strong bonds (we can't let
those guys beat us, etc.), so they've made their own Rankings to
signify that they can really be an Elite within themselves. Okay, so I'm talking
out of my hat, but it's a logical explanation!
Groups Within the Perfect Dark Elite, Not Confined to One Country
France -- PAL Elite
Both Defunct (I think)
I wasn't around at the start of the Perfect Dark Rankings
so I don't know the history (if any) of competition between France and
Australia. The PAL Elite is basically made up of PAL players, which means
basically Europe, Australia and New Zealand. And Tasmania. ;-)
Other GoldenEye Rivalries of All Sorts
Greg K. Vs. Goldenvinze Defunct -- Top Notch -- Adam/Harvey/Peter/Graham/Craig/Trent -- n00b
Okay. These ones are all completely different. Greg Vs.
Vinze is GE and PD, and is a two-man Rivalry like Wouter Vs. Randy. Top
Notch is a bunch of European players, though I don't know the connection.
Adam/Harvey/Peter/Graham/Craig/Trent is like THE GE Rivalry, originally
with four players within a space of around 140 seconds. It was expanded for
some reason, and then all this other stuff happened. Adam Moore updates it. The
Elite n00b Rivalry is for n00bs and includes Dan Furst, Jean-François Dubreuil,
Tom Andrews, Matthew Kazuk, Robert Shepherd, Herman Yeung, Micky Wright and Adam
Durkacz. Updated by Tom (aka wiwf).
Other Perfect Dark Rivalries of All Sorts
Death -- Fly -- pd.roy.org Access Forbidden -- Pimpin Defunct -- Psychotic -- Revival Defunct -- Shade's Defunct -- Smackdown
These were created by different players for different reasons, but mainly they make really good browsing. There are plenty of these pages out there which weren't listed on the page, and some which were but the links didn't work. To get back to these ones though, they cover a wide variety of players and places.
Now that movies of runs for practically everything one could
wish to view are very readily available
on the Overcash server, strategy pages have become somewhat superfluous, unfortunately.
World Record Strategies Central
The New GE Strats Central
A few players have submitted their strategies to this page
and about half the missions are covered there now. Of course, now that The Elite
has an enormous video database there's little need for strats. Still, a
worthwhile page all the same. On the new page run by ST most missions are covered.
Perfect Dark World Record Strategies Central
This page lists many killer strats designed to help players to get better at PD by hearing how the masters did it. It by no means contains strats for every level on every difficulty, but it's got lots of useful information including Defection Agent for Dummies.
You should e-mail me if you have any of the following concerns:
There are one or more links that I either mistyped or aren't there any longer.
There are some interesting related pages I forgot to add.
Either of the above two points suddenly becomes apparent in the future.
The page returns any debugging signals or other signs of sloppy HTMLing.
You should not e-mail me if you have any of the following concerns:
You hate my guts.
You hate Angelfire; there's nothing wrong with it.
The page takes too long to load; get a faster modem.
You think this page sucks.
You sold your grandma on eBay; I can't get her back for you.
You can't see the links because they're blue. That's because you haven't visited them yet. Duh.
