Thread: whats is the longest speedrun on this site

Today I learned that people still use this thread to get the reply to this question, because it appears in the top results of Google for example. So I'm gonna make a reply because holy heck things have changed in 3 years.

First, the Baten Kaitos 100% World Record is now 338 hours 43 minutes and 26 seconds to this day. BUT in case it gets improved and I didn't update this message, I'm going to link the 100% LeaderBoards and not the link of my current WR: https://www.speedrun.com/baten_kaitos_eternal_wings_and_the_lost_ocean#100

Second, there are longer runs than this, even if they are debatable. The one that comes to my mind immediately is for the game Spider:
Rite of the Shrouded Moon, with the category 100%, that is 528 hours long https://www.speedrun.com/srotsm#100
(But personally I would call this category "100% No Time Manipulation" because as the name implies you cannot change the clock of your PC for this category, and that makes it debatable because it's an added constraint. And if Time Manipulation was a thing in Baten Kaitos 100%, it would then be much faster.)
For more explanation about all of this: https://www.speedrun.com/srotsm/thread/yuvqx

And of course, don't even start with the Theoretical Longest Speedruns. There are hundreds that would be longer in theory. EZScape made a video about it:

My own Discord server has always been considered as the hangout place for Baten Kaitos EWatLO speedrunning, since I am the only person running the Main Categories on a regular basis.

Here the invite for it, if you are interested: https://discord.gg/P7GeH4s

Actually, to my knowledge, since January 2018 the longest accomplished speedrun is Spider:
Rite of the Shrouded Moon 100%: https://www.speedrun.com/srotsm#100

It's not as recognized as Baten Kaitos because there are only 4 hours of gameplay needed. Even Snowfats, the runner, has issue with that: https://www.speedrun.com/srotsm/thread/yuvqx

Thread: 99.92% Speedrun

Started by: BaffanBaffan

Over the years, many people asked "how long would it be without the Splendid Hair" and the answer is simple: the 2nd longest item to evolve takes 80 hours to do so, we can only get it after 2 hours and 30 minutes of gameplay, and we also have about 2 hours of menus. So it would take a little less than 85 hours.

And this is exactly what we did. My time is 84 hours, 29 minutes and 45 seconds.

The entire run in itself is available on a YouTube Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNpDam3KKfeo5NgYjsR6gKICcE9KvvnBV

This is a very meme category, extremely niche, and not even worth putting on the Miscellaneous section in my opinion. But if anyone else does a run, I will probably add the category. HOWEVER, I would HEAVILY, SERIOUSLY recommend you to do a 100% run before. 99.92% is MUCH harder. Compared to 100% that has only about 18% of the time as gameplay, 99.92% has about 50% of gameplay. I was never able to take a break longer than 9 hours. It's not as easy as 100% where you can just basically play 4 hours then have a break for 20 hours, and repeat every day.

I made a FAQ for it. I included the schedule I had for the run. You will see that it was hectic: https://pastebin.com/WayTEyVK

Yeah, those platforms are a pain. I don't even really know myself. I would love to have some inputs from Toothache on this, he is the scientist of this game and made the TAS of it.

DSi not being an available console on SRC, it's alright if you put 3DS in the console but specify DSi in the comment. ❤️

Thread: Rules and Categories

Started by: wersterwerster

As I already discussed with Argick, if we create an All Emeralds Category, for Sonic I would prefer the timing happening on the final hit rather than the white out. But that's only my opinion, if we ever do something like a poll and my opinions is really low then no problem.

However, I feel super conflicted about the timing for Any%. If you get 1 Emerald or if you complete GHZ, then you reset, that means you have to do a new file, wait for the intro, then quit and reenter the file to start the run. If we ever grind this game intensively, that could be painful... Minor stuff, but still I don't feel super good about that.

Happy grinding everyone!

I mean I'm not going to ESA but I guess people would like this kind of information. Because I would would have come it if I was going to ESA.

Thread: Round 1 Cuts

Started by: flickyflicky

FINALLY got a Breath of the Wild run I can be relatively happy with: a 55:36.

Basically, during the entire month of April, I got A BUNCH of real life issues, impacting my capacity to stream, play, or even concentrate. And before this 55:36, I had a 1:12:09 that could have been a sub 55 without the stupid mistakes, which made me rather mad. I still didn't get sub 55, but this is a matter of hours. Should happen tomorrow. And sub 50 is a matter of days, it should be done next week, or even tomorrow if I am lucky by some miracle.

I lowered the estimate from 1:20:00 to 1:10:00. Even with major deaths, no runs should be sub 1:05:00 by the end of July, considering none of my future runs should be under 1:10:00 already. I even think a 1 hour estimate could be possible, but I am waiting for the opinion of the other 2 runners.

Sorry for making you wait for this update, I know it's rather late but really this month got worse and worse. I even decided to not eat, drink and sleep before I could get a sub hour run because it was infuriating to have karma on the way to my sub 50 run. But now that I broke the sub hour barrier, it should not be as mentally exhausting as before.

Anyway, here is the run:

As Pottoww and Trollbear said just above, many people are actually wishing to have BotW to ESA. I made a poll to see how it really is, and it seems to be 55/45 in favor of it. Not too bad! So, if Yes wins the poll, Slask and I will submit it as a race, with an initial estimate of 2 hours.

The poll: https://twitter.com/Baffan/status/836561886871191552
