Thread: Version 1.0.14 changes

Started by: D.E.M.O.D.E.M.O.

The 5th of January, the version 1.0.14 of the game was released. Although its description only states "Added widescreen support", the new version also changed the spawning timing of entities. Although I'm not sure yet of what the exact change was (i believe that entities spawn at a higher distance than before, but not sure), the fact is than the timing of basically every ennemy in the game has change, and in nearly every time it makes it slower.

This is because in previous versions of the game enemies were unloaded until the camera loaded them in. This allowed in many situations to kill the enemy or just go through it before it attacked for the first time. The new version I suppose that made the camera wider, loading in the enemies earlyer and allowing them to attack before arribing to it, wich in a lot of occasions make the player either wait for the attack (which in the long run loses a lot of time) or take a damage boost (only 3 aviable for level and current route already used them all in nearly every level).

So in conclusion, new version seems to be much slower than older versions. It is posible to install older versions using APKs (for example in apkmirror). Therefore, the legality of older versions should be discussed. There are mainly three way to tackle the problem:

-All versions allowed
-Only last version allowed
-Split categories between Legacy and Current Version

Personally I would opt for the "All versions allowed", but I would love to hear other member's oppinion.

(Btw this is only on Android. Idk if ios also got modified and I'm quite certain that there is no way to take an ios app to an older version)

I'm pretty sure that:
1. Just unlock them (except Harmony Hustle)
2. The courts you have to unlock are these: https:/​/​www.​mariowiki.​com/​Mario_Sports_Mix#Unlockable_courts

Thread: Basketball and hockey

Started by: ThatRaisinThoThatRaisinTho

Hockey seems totally pointless to me. I've played some games in sport mix difficulty and even then it isn't very hard to get pefect time. In hard and spetially easy mode, those would be boring, slow and unskilled speedruns.
Basketball is trickyer because of the possession timer and requires much more IA interaction, but although they require more skill than hockey, those would also be really uninteresting speedruns.
Imo none of these categories should be added, but I'm ok with it if most of the community is in favour of it

Thread: 100 % idea

Started by: JetpackAwaaayJetpackAwaaay

Yea, the useful card are:
-More invulnerability when damaged
-Extra hp at the start
-Max of 4 Fireballs
-Fireballs at the beginning of the level
-Increased live drop %

Nevertheless, I believe buying cards should be allowed in a 100% run

Yea I've been wondering about it too, as my phone lags a lot when recording. Are emulators allowed mods?

I just had to collect all cards again, bc I had to reset my phone. I just cleared the game trying to defeat all enemies in my way, saving all villagers, collecting chests and breacking jars and I had enough money to buy all cards except from one. If I had been lucky enough to get the gold coin card early enough, I would say a single playthrough is enough to buy all cards, and if not, with just some coin collecting in the right level (idk which but surely there might be a good one for it) would be enough.
I feel that your idea has potential, but I would allow buying cards. Other than that, requirements:
-Start from a brand new game
-Clear all levels
-Save all villagers
-Open all cages
-Clear all challenges in less than 50"

I wouldn't put buy all cards as a requirement (despite being a 100% run) to avoid shit-coin-grinding but I'm ok if the oppinion is that it should be required

Actually in sports mix you have to beat the Behemoth king, so I guess this is the final goal of the run

Thread: Great language time save + how does it affect the rules

Started by: D.E.M.O.D.E.M.O.

Recently I discovered that there is a language aviable for the game which is literally "no text". This saves a lot of time as you can skip dialogs much faster and I would suggest to use it to anyone.
However, this raises the question of how the rules are affected by this weird language, as there is no text. Please moderators, could you find a way to fit the rules with the no text language?
