Thread: Series request about to hit two weeks pending

Started by: diggitydiggity

(edited: )

I've also already mentioned that the queue quickly easily gets clogged with people who feel they need to resubmit literally right away, this happens all the time. Think about this; you went through 20 games that took you maybe an hour, you take a break and come back in the afternoon, suddenly those 20 games are back. Sounds a bit extreme, this isn't always the case but its a bit more annoying during the weekends but because of this it can push other submissions back a bit further.

We don't do everything in one sitting, that would be insanity. Nothing gets lost in the queue, it just takes awhile for us to get through them due to a lot of factors such as the game themselves to the information provided and of course what everyone on staff is doing as well. People always seem to think "I bet if I was on staff I could power through everything in like 5 mins lol hahaha! It's just looking at vedo gamz ezpz!" that isn't how it works and never will. We just do what we can at a time and come back later to resume afterwards.

At the end of it all, we ALWAYS get things done. There is no room to complain, ever work at your job where you have to wait every two weeks to get a paycheck? Does that wait time bother you even though that is how that system generally works? Maybe this isn't the greatest example but it's similar enough. Just be patient and resume what you do best, which is speedrunning we don't disappoint and everyone who comes to this site regularly knows this.

Not going on repeat again, you can view literally any thread similar to this one with those questions.

We will get to it eventually, until then chill and do some speedruns.

No, you don't sound very patient and just because you made a forum post does not speed up the process. You are not the only one in the queue, but we are going to get to it just within the hour alone I have gone through 25 games and still counting. Relax.

As for your question, yes you should be submitting for at least most of those games in question instead of just the one. It's better to get one game in the submission first then getting runs/footage of the others then requesting a series afterwards if it warrants it.

Actually its been 13 days, some of the games just fall further back compared to others but the two week mark is more of a deadline we tend to aim for but that isn't always the case. There's always a bunch of other varying factors between games, I can't speak for yours since I haven't looked at it yet other than the date of your submission just now. Everyone tends to do things a little differently from one another but at the end it all gets taken care of.

I've slowly been getting to them myself, people tend to resubmit as soon as they get rejected and clogs the queue backup again. Just be patient, we'll get to it.

Thread: New WR Discord Bot Idea

Started by: [Deleted user]

Just curious, but is the source of this bot not going to be on github or something similar?

I'm not a fan of giving discord bots perms if I can't see their source codes due to the shady stuff people have done with them in the past.

Thread: NTR / Emulators runs

Started by: DangerlessDangerless

(edited: )

After excessive testing, all NTR runs will get 20 seconds added back to their runs as this is how much NTR is saving over the course of the run. This was examined with numerous runs (thanks Justun and bluehits for some of the help with getting video content) for any% between both Norman Mansion and Hidden Mansion. However, for other regional releases (EUR/JPN) I'll have to retest those as well and including any new categories that are added to the main leaderboard itself.

Co-op runs will not get any time added back to it since NTR streaming does not work with the original hardware (and local play doesn't work with it). Boss Rush will also not be affected since we use IGT which is unaffected by what NTR does but I did test some of the bosses just in case in the gallery.

Emulators will be treated as it is on the original Luigi's Mansion leaderboard which means after a certain amount of time runs of it will be rejected, we are not entirely sure what this limit is just yet and we would also consider lowering that limit as the game gets more optimized. We also do not like the idea of people being able to remap their controls as it creates an unfair advantage towards players on the original hardware and can also potentially lead to tricks/glitches that are only possible on emulator.

(Read second updated post)

As we all know NTR tends to make loading screens faster by 1-1.5 seconds and this game is filled with them sadly. However, I am going to be personally timing these out and until then I ask to those who stream on NTR to hold on submitting runs until this is done.

We don't want to create unfairness on the boards but we don't want to exclude anyone either because video proof is a good thing to have. This will take awhile since I need a fairly large sample size. If you happen to submit a run, it will be rejected and your rejection notice will come to this thread to understand further as to why. Once this is all done you will be able to submit to the boards just fine, I am getting started with this extremely soon and take me a few days to get it finished so expect next weekend for the okay.

As for emulator, not a lot of known about it but it seems to emulate fairly well but currently like NTR we ask not to submit these at this moment. Assuming it is okay, I will likely ask everyone to use Nightly builds of citra.

In the meantime to catch up on any other information or updates along the way, head to the Luigi's Mansion discord which is linked on the panel to the left.

No, the game uses the originals name "Luigi's Mansion" and it's on "3DS" this is standard naming protocol when it comes to naming this is to separate the two games, if you have to get upset blame Nintendo for lack of effort with changing the name. The URL is also fine.

The "consistent naming convention" is if it uses it in its own title as seen below and which case should have "3D" specifying the correct games title as it does not use the originals MM name; https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/d/d1/Majora%27s_Mask_3D_cover.png/220px-Majora%27s_Mask_3D_cover.png

In any case, this threads question has been resolved. If you further need examples simply type things such as (SNES), (GEN), etc into the search bar to get results reflecting this.

Thread: Problem requesting Metal Slug game

Started by: davehunterdavehunter

(edited: )

@Komrade That series only adds official games, not bootlegs. This bootleg is based off the official Metal Slug 3 for Neo-Geo, in this case it does not seem at all necessary to add it to their series (Course you can always ask a series mod regardless but we won't forcefully add it in this circumstance). The submission also doesn't give much information about the bootleg in question which has been recently requested and hopefully it can be addressed as we requested, I did dig around for more information on it but struggled with finding out much on it myself and seemed nearly the same as the original game.

It'll get added by next weekend, it'll have its own board. SRC requires all new games to only get added two weeks in advance of their release day, so look forward to that. Otherwise, empty boards automatically get flagged after awhile and deleted.

@Lafungo I want to add that CyndaKill is extremely rude and showed a lot of disrespect and also told me how much he disliked new runners asking questions. I originally contacted him about IGT allowance for MK7 via NTRBoot (Obviously not to allow it for RTA but IGT tracking as it is unaffected and does provide a recorded run of it) and tried to provide a case to him, though he eventually just ignored me, you might remember me briefly contacting you at one point around that time..maybe I should've talked to you more about it at the time. Only reason this is being brought up now is simply because you mentioned adding him fairly recently around the time I was talking to him. All of it was a infuriating experience.

I'm not trying to shame anyone, but the way he was and the image he has given himself shows. Most of my discussion with him was through Discord DMs. In the end, I walked away from the game and went on to another game to speedrun instead. I highly open you replace him with someone who is more capable.

I slightly misread, I forgot "Minecraft: Story Mode" was one of their (Telltale) games though it doesn't change too much regarding the reasoning for rejection.

We generally always try to let series mods add games because series mods have complained in the past with us adding games to them so we try to encourage people to reach out to them before its handed in our direction, it always depends on the game. If this doesn't end up as the case then I don't see an issue and the rejection can be amended.

"I demand you"

First of all, coming off aggressive right off the bat does no good for me or anyone on staff it shows you have zero respect towards anyone on staff. I personally get tired of how aggressive people get on here while we try our best to get things done. While it wasn't myself who looked at your request you should re-phase your words if your going to publicly post about it, otherwise do not expect us to respond this goes for anyone.

Second, our position doesn't let us see who moderates what, only the total amount of games they moderate (yet another change that will happen eventually) and looking at your profile it doesn't appear you have a single run tied to a Telltale board which is extremely strange, which is most likely how they came to that conclusion.

Lastly, like it has been said a million times already towards a lot of people, you could of still provided this information into the "additional notes" section.

Now "I demand you" to listen to what I just said and to resubmit providing that information without being a complete ass.
