Thread: Moving Runs from Main Leaderboard category to Category Extensions category

Started by: 2dos2dos

Hi,

We recently demoted a category on the main leaderboard to the category extensions leaderboard. Is there any way to move the runs easily, or will it need to be done manually?

Category in question getting removed: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​dk64/​full_game#Any_All_Keys

It's been discussed before, but realistically the community determined that its too hard to define rules for a category like that, it would end up being way too arbitrary in what would and wouldnt be allowed.

Thread: High Scores - what shall we do?

Started by: PacPac

Absolutely integrate high scores on the website. I'm sure it's like it with other games, but specifically with the Crazy Taxi series, there are some challenges in the game that are score attack challanges while others are time attack. If high scores and times are split up it would make games like Crazy Taxi super messy. I am 100% for option 1, though I am not opposed to purchasing highscores.com and redirecting to speedrun.com

Thread: You must have all other profiles blank.

Started by: RhodechillRhodechill

For instance, you have a file named "AAA" with times and everything unlocked. If you create a new file "AAB" you will still have access to the unlocked cabbies, bikes and times from file "AAA" on the Crazy Box menu screen even if you have file "AAB" loaded

Sorry for the super late response. The reason for this is because unless theyre all blank it will still load data from the other profiles during the run, which effectively does not count as a run from a blank file.

The mods have a round table to determine it. All of us are familiar with what times are possible at what skill levels so if a submitted time is found to be suspect it is brought up and discussed with all mods.

I've been talking to PAC to implement a system where only a WR run would need to be verified but nothing has come of it yet

Thread: Tutorial??

Started by: SupremePigSupremePig

Unfortunately there isn't really a tutorial video, but a lot of the run is just becoming familiar with the techniques listed here:
http://www.crazytaxi.net/skills.html

That website describes the techniques used in the speedrun in great detail, and can be used along with watching some of the Crazy Taxi speedruns available on Youtube to learn the run at the moment. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask.

I highly recommend practicing and running on Wii U VC if you have access to that version. You are still able to set up a savestate + multiple save files

Is it possible to add an option to add text to the run submissions page? For instance, I'd like to add something along the lines of "A video is strongly encouraged"

Thread: N64 VS Wii U VC

Started by: LOZRunnerLOZRunner

If you want to do Any% or Bingo, N64 NSTC-U is the best version.

If you want to do No Levels Early or 101%, Wii U VC NSTC-U is the best version.

Thread: New Categories?

Additionally, judging by your post history, you should reconsider going around to random games you don't speedrun and asking for categories to be added, especially the games with large communities like DK64. Generally, these communities' leaderboards are dictated by the people who have been running the game for years and years and put in countless hours of effort into the game, so doing what you've been doing comes off as pretty rude

Thread: New Categories?

Started by: BlackYoshi123BlackYoshi123

To elaborate on what TJ meant by "not a good idea for this game", one of the biggest issues with DK64 Glitchless is that there are so many tricks in this game that are borderline glitches that the community would have a difficult time agreeing on what is a glitch or not.

And again, the run is boring as hell: we know, we've tried running it before 😛

Emulation is banned due to extremely poor emulation. However, any officially release is allowed. 🙂

Thanks for the update on the category thing, as well as the implementation of the obsolete runs feature

A couple things...

Is there a way to make it so that showing all systems only shows the fastest time from a user if a user has submitted on multiple systems? I believe it already does this if a user has a time across multiple regions. I couldn't find an option, and this looks messy:

Also, any updates on having a variable for specific categories rather than have a variable apply across all categories?
