Thread: Double Driver Subcategories

Hello, me and a friend are planning on speedrunning Double Driver White Flags and we've noticed there were no runs available. Can the Double Driver Category be added in?

Thread: any% save corruption category ?

Started by: yanounaiyanounai

I've just made a post about category extensions on the series forum. I think this kind of run would rather fit in there.
I would love this to be a category, however I can understand these kind of runs not being on the actual game page.

Thread: Category Expansions

Started by: BirdieRafaelBirdieRafael

Hey, just a quick question: Is there a category expansion site planned for the Pokemon games? Some games like OoT, GTA etc have these for the fun little runs like OoT 420%, Vice City Seagull%, the meme runs for Link's Awakening like Fish the Pond% etc that would be too dumb for the actual game's pages. I could see the following runs to be in this category, some of which have been requested on the game's page but were not added as a category du to "any% being too short" or for other reasons:

- Yellow: Any% Save Corruption, 0:00
- Green: Any% Door Glitch
- Gold: Mareep Route / Top Percentage Rattata Route
- Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald: Fish the Feebas
- Softlocking categories (do they exist?)
- Red: Lawsuit%, Catch Mew

I'm sure a lot of you guys that have been speedrunning these games for more than the few months that I've been doing it will know a lot more meme% or possible race categories. Pls don't be mad if this is a dumb request, I know similar stuff has been asked before, but I'm a noob and really like silly, short and funny runs.

Edit: I could also try and provide youtube links for each these so that the leaderboards would not be empty. I know mods don't like empty pages.

Forum: OlliOlli

Thread: Any% rules question

Started by: BirdieRafaelBirdieRafael

Hey, I'm currently training the Amateur Any% Run of OlliOlli. During training I simply start up the game and run through all the Amateur levels. Now before I submit an actual run and go though the trouble of recording and uploading I have these questions about the rules:

- Do I have to start on a new save file or can I run the already completed levels on my current save file? Running an already existing file eliminates the possibility of accidently 100%ing a level and spending time in the "You have unlocked a pro level"-screen, other than that it is practically the same as starting a new game.
- If I can use an already completed save file, is the order in which I play through the levels/worlds relevant or can I decide for myself? I know it would probably use up some time in the level selection screen to do so, however I struggle a lot with the Base levels so I would like to start with these to determine early if the run is worth continuing - as of now I sometimes land every jump and grind perfectly up until Base 1, where I then crash a hundred times in a row and lose the run 😃

I watched the current world record and I'm very eager to try my best at a top 3. This game is a lot of fun and a great start for a first speedrun for me, thanks to the uploaders and thanks in advance for an answer.

Thread: Make a series?

Makes sense to me. There are three more DS games in the Survival Kids series and there's also Survival Kids 2: Dasshutsu! Futago Shima for the GBC which was only released in Japan, so it's definitely a series.

Forum: Trip World

Thread: New category for runs

Started by: BirdieRafaelBirdieRafael

Hello, I'm very new to speedrunning and Trip World is my favourite game. The handful of runs I've seen were all Any% and there seems to be only the "Beat the Game" category here. Now there are 4 hidden Para bosses in the game and some optional bosses - how can I submit a new category to the game page called "All Bosses"? Because that would probably be my very first speedrun.

I just joined the site btw. looking forward to being a part of the speedrunning community from now on.
