Thanks SnipinG for the answer. ^That's what I'm afraid of happening xD. I guess I'll try to record my runs on a camera. Good thing I have a decent sized SD card for hour long videos.

Thread: Question About No Item Leaderboards

Started by: AJ_ToTheAJ_ToThe

Hello, everyone. I'm fairly new to the speedrunning community but I've been playing MK8 for a year and a half now. I've gotten pretty gnarly on an inward bike and I'm interested in doing some no item speedruns. I apologize in advance if this question has already been answered! I already skimmed through most of the forums on here.

I peeped at the No Items Nitro, Retro and DLC categories and I noticed that there are about 4-8 runners per category (which is a very small amount of people). I read on a forum that stated top 5 runs must have video proof. Let's say I happen to get a 3rd ranking time out of 5 people. Abiding by the rules, will I have to post video proof for that run? I don't have a capture device, unfortunately. I also noticed some recent (months old) top 5 runs don't have video proof. Maybe these specific runners have the same problem as I do? I could record my TV screen on a camera but those HD files sizes are ridonkulous. Do the admins let this situation slide because there are so little players in this specific category?

Sorry for the long read, lol

Hello everyone. My name is AJ. I was introduced to speedrunning back in 2013 (AGDQ, the Wind Waker run to be precise). I became so intrigued and fascinated. Seeing a game from my childhood being beaten in 5 hours was a slap in the face... It was amazing. Since then, watching speedruns have become a great source of entertainment for me. Thought I'd take my interest in the activity a step further by joining the community. So hello! I hope to share some (nooby) times on here soon.

Stuff about me: 18. First game I ever played was Donkey Kong 64, still have that cartridge in working condition 🙂. Nintendo, Playstation and PC kinda guy. Music head - listen to classical, minimal, jazz, classic rock, EDM, R&B and hip hop (If you get reference from the title then you earn 100 cool points). Drummer and percussionist. Recreate videogame OSTs in my spare time. Like to work out and chill out.

One love!
