Thread: New Rule For BTD6 Speedrunning (July 2021)

Started by: BurningFlamesBurningFlames

(edited: )

The BTD6 speedrunning community has grown quite big over the years and I'm very proud of what it has become 😃 but, with the growing popularity of game and when the times of runs getting shorter and shorter, a few sketchy things will eventually pop up so as a precaution to this, one new rule will be added to the speedrunning rules starting July 7th, 2021.

New Rule =
- Every run will need to show the main menu screen at the start and end of the run. Any flagged account will be rejected for cheating until proven otherwise

This rule is meant to detect modded/flagged accounts given by 2 leaves at the options menu on the main menu screen (Ninjakiwi way to show that the account is modded/cheating). and also some other things not as important...

For any flagged account user, do not worry about never being able to submit a valid run tho, with verification and proof, we will verify your run just like any other run. (This is due to Ninjakiwi having a slight flaw with the flagging system where some people gets flagged despite not cheating/modding)

Thread: Black Border% Suggestions

For the pausing in-between maps, this is just to try remove the loading times... For example, It is much slower to load assets on phone then on pc so I want to try remove that much of the equation as much as possible. So from the title screen, by using a fast pc, you can enter a map about .5s to 1s faster then if you should use a lower end pc or phone. Also, it allows people to go to the restroom or something cause it is quite a long speedrun (just trying to be as speedrun friendly as possible). I will possibly add an additional rule though. If you were to go to any other screen like MK or powers screen, I will start the timer again 😃

Then the same could be said for CHIMPS and yet CHIMPS has very little runs despite it including all maps. Black Border% is much longer than CHIMPS and so far, there has only been 2 submissions (one by me)... If we make this a per map thing, nearly all of them will be empty... cause I doubt people are willing to run this category for every single map. While one difficulty is much more simpler and more feasible for one person to run all difficulties then every map

It is fine as long as you record the whole speedrun... You might not be able to get the best time, but it is fine as long as it is legit.

most likely map difficulties like CHIMPS runs cause it will be too much to have it for all maps

Suggestions for timing, rules, and/or other suggestions? and the most important question, do you want this to be a thing and possibly run it?

Black Border% is basically doing every difficulty of a single map including CHIMPS. For CHIMPS, you are not able to exit the game midway as it will no longer be a Black Border% cause it will become a gold border instead.

For Timing : (Current idea)
Timing starts on pressing play on first difficulty played and end on first frame where victory banner or free insta monkey screen pops up. The timer between maps will be paused to remove the menu screen time and continues the next time you press play on the next difficulty.

Rules = (Current idea)
- No double cash
- No modding the game of any kind
- Must show the entire run from start to finish (No cuts in between the difficult change)
- No Insta monkeys and power ( except monkey farmer)
- No continues (If fail mid run, just restart the difficulty but keep the timer running, unless thinking of resetting)
- Monkey Knowledge permitted
- It is fine if you already black bordered the map as long as you re-beat all difficulty again without exiting the map midway in the CHIMPS mode.

Thread: Slow game

Im not an expert but I think the best way is to probably decrease the number of apps running in the background and decrease the resolution in the game (this helps a little). I also think that you might not need a timer, since you would count the frames of the speedrun anyway later (not sure about this...need to wait for better answers, maybe from one of the mods maybe)... so if that is the case, that would probably help a little as well.

Other than that, probably get a better device I suppose.
