Just want to make this clear for everyone (since we've picked up like 10 new members thanks to this topic): If you are running the SMP multicore client, make sure you set up a passkey! If you follow the installation and configure guides you should be fine, but I feel it needs repeating. You can get 10x the points if you do this one step.

I'm not one for self promotion, but any extra exposure for the GB recruitment topic for the Tested Folding Team's war against cancer/massive point earning bonanza is worth it.
Keep up the good work, I can tell you've point a lot of time and effort into these.
Come on, you can't forget the classics! While some people have mentioned Mega Man 2, what about Life Force?

4 is what I normally run on. My bare minimum seems to be 2, but at that point I feel pretty shitty the whole day even though I can function. Whenever I have a day off I'll sleep for about 12, but sometimes I get wrapped up in something and I don't sleep for two days. It's weird, but it works.
Most I did was about 100 hours, simply to see how long I could. I seem to get by with very little sleep every day (~4 hours), so I figured I'd be able to make it a good while. The first day was the only one I felt tired, but your body starts reacting in odd ways past the 60 hour mark. From 60-80 I remember feeling very cold (and unable to get warm again), and past 80 all of my joints and muscles became very sore. I could have made it longer but I realized that whatever was happening was my body trying to tell me: "Something has gone very wrong, and I bet you're causing it." I eventually went to bed at 103 hours in, simply because it became too painful to ignore any more. Even breathing wasn't feeling right.
Now that I know my limits, I have no desire to do that again. I felt fucked up for a good week.
The part that scares me is if this content was originally planned for the main game and then some marketing exec said: "What can we cut out to make some more cash?" At least when the DLC is off of the disk you can be sure that it at least wasn't ready by the time it went gold.
