Thread: Can I use a gameboy player to run this game?

Started by: mrguyaveragemrguyaverage

Almost every GBA speedrunner, no matter which GBA game, when they run it on console run it on a gameboy player.
Some people run on a DS capture but those cases are rare.

Thread: Easy difficulty?

Started by: Cyberdemon531Cyberdemon531

We generally don't run that category and it would yield in no routing differences compared to normal mode. Therefore we don't have it listed as a category. Although I'm sure one of the moderators can give a better answer.

Most runners that run on console use the GBA SP as a controller.

Good to see someone interested in Final Fantasy. What console version are you looking into?

The japanese run posted by Swed uses an item glitch on Exdeath to trigger a power cannon use (the cannoneer combination). It looks similar to the item duplication glitch and would be an awesome speedstrat showing much similarity to the kiss of blessing glitch

The Japanese version is 3 minutes faster on RTA compared to the English version. IGT is the same for all versions.
The actual fastest version would be the Chinese version but that version is unavailable to us atm

That's a fast run to say the least. I'll look into the strats used when I have time.

Hey FFV runners.
I was wondering if the SNES step manipulation routes also work on the GBA version.
For that matter; would the same route work on the GBA version?

Thanks in advance for your help
