Aside from that, good luck with the speedruns and try running it even if no one else is + it isn't on the leaderboards!

Whenever it comes to adding new categories to the leaderboards, it needs to be demonstrated that enough people are running it to warrant adding it to the EXT boards.

Generally speaking, if you could find 5 runners who would run this and submit videos, it would likely be considered for EXT. Past categories have been added with less runners, but if the interest has been there to run and improve it

Also I almost wouldn't agree that it makes sense for SMB1 either when so many levels are fully optimisable, and at that point the leaderboards become a bit redundant, messy and pointless

Thread: Can we add ILs?

Started by: Otterstone_GamerOtterstone_Gamer

It's very unlikely to be a popular idea as we've considered ILs on multiple occasions, and even had them in the past. There are several threads discussing the implications of ILs. If there are any new suggestions about why SMW should consider adding ILs not discussed in those threads, I'm sure we'll happily discuss it here

With regards to world runs, they kind of already exist. We have W1/2/3 Any% on the smwext boards -- and if you want a new category on the boards, all you need is a couple of people interested in running it, and be willing to submit it and it'll be considered!

PS: I'd guess that over 50% of runs I verify are 11 Exit NMG, and I've probably verified over 300 runs at this point

It's something that being looked into as it's easily been the most suggested thing to me by various members regarding leaderboards.

I've always thought it made sense since this is the most natural any% category that any new person would attempt. It's a very pure form of any% for SMW, and most games seem to have their version of "Any% NMG" (Basically a natural any% run that doesn't totally take the piss by warping to credits, save corruption, etc). Its ruleset is also fairly pure (Any% NMG based on our current NMG definition) and is easily and by far the most run category on the boards.

I've also thought filters are generally a bad fix for this type of thing since they put off a lot of runners of submitting each run type. A good example is the SMB3 boards putting NES/SNES together, making it that there's literally only 6 all-stars submissions there even though are lots of runs

Maybe there's more of an argument for it now with all the activity from Japanese runners. We'll definitely look into it. It also helps if/when people are running this category in events 🙂

Another vote for input lag since on anything other than console + CRT, it's required that you execute earlier than what you see (or earlier than CRT/Console setup)

Hey there, I made a short video explaining a couple of things about Ghost House

Also, it wouldn't be an emulator issue, that's not really a thing that happens 🙂

Good luck!
