Thread: Credits Warps Category

Started by: Carter44Carter44

I did this recently and it’s sparked a lot of interest in doing credits warps/game end glitch I was wondering if we could have a category for it

Walking towards enemies while mashing the fire button is how you cancel it and kill them the fastest

Mash the fire button really fast instead of holding it down

Thread: Leaderboard update

Started by: Carter44Carter44

Hit Marmot isn't a game that loops forever, it has an actual ending after 30 stages. To reflect that I created new categories for each game mode and I left the old 100k category since it already has a nice handful of runners

Thread: Category Change Proposal

Started by: Carter44Carter44

The way the game works is that the it consists of three rounds and then it goes back to the title screen. That means that the current categories are only beating the first level out of three which means the game isn't considered beat. I have done a basic run of the whole game to show how I think the categories should be 🙂

Thread: When does time start and when does it end?

Started by: AquaBlakeAquaBlake

Time starts as soon as you press the start button to start the game. Using level splits is completely up to the runner

Thread: The WR time there is listed wrongly

Started by: PresJPolkPresJPolk

The rules absolutely should have stated that timing starts on gaining control, that was a mistake. The reason it starts on gaining control instead of the title screen is that it’s usually very hard to tell when the title screen is started when using the RNG manipulation

Thread: Adding All Difficulties category

Started by: EIGHT

An all difficulties seems like it would make a better race format than an actual category but if there’s enough runners that want it I don’t have a problem with adding it

Thread: Zapper VS Controller

Started by: Carter44Carter44

I decided to separate zapper runs and controller runs since this game gives the option to use both. Now it’s consistent with other games of this fashion like Operation Wolf and Mechanized Attack

Thread: Hardware and Emulator issues.

Started by: InsomnimaticInsomnimatic

Given that we have a pretty equal ratio of runs that are on original hardware and runs that are on emulator, I think splitting them would be a good choice. Adding time to runs might turn into a funky situation if different emulators would require different amounts to be added

It’s allowed. There just hasn’t been any submissions for it. It’s also not a great option because the frame rate is overall slower than the NES

Thread: New Death Warp

Started by: Carter44Carter44

I found a new death warp/wrong warp that takes you from 1-1 directly to 1-3, saving about a minute. The only catch is that you need to game over and start again for it to work. Would this be allowed in runs? And if so when would the timing start?

Make sure you are using an original power supply, not a new repro. Most of the new ones will eventually deteriorate your picture quality and could possibly hurt your system
