Ahh, glad it's not just me. I put in a game on April 23rd and haven't heard back yet.

It's definitely slower to eat individual pringles.

I always meant to come back around and do a dino run after I had a time with mammal that I was happy with - but I'm bad.

A sensible explanation.

Strictly speaking, any% is just whichever of the three routes happens to be the fastest on the leaderboard at any given time - but I think it makes the most sense to keep the leaderboards separated so one can see the performance of each individual runner relative to the evolution build.

Thread: Rules Question - Savestate for ILs?

Started by: ElipsisElipsis

Rules clarification question:

If I'm working on ILs, it is acceptable to load a savestate at the previous fight or start screen for the IL I'm working on - or do I need to play through the circuit to get to the guy I'm trying to IL every time?

I think the game is understood well enough that we know that the fights are all independent of each other - but I understand why this might still be problematic for some.

Please let me know either way.

Thanks!

Everyone's runs kind of settled this.

Looks like people are starting time on the Universal Paperclips logo and counting IGT, so we'll put the RTA stop there as well.

Thread: 0-Exit Rules Clarification

Started by: ElipsisElipsis

Hey all,

So I'm working on completing my first 0-Exit run, and I'm trying to put together all the information from the various strategies that have been documented over time (mostly by Dots and SethBling).

From what I understand from reading the write-up on the current route, which I think is (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Cgr0jFw4AU8hF00JcQlOTRb8I1qPd-tF73LtTF4lzZE/edit) - the run requires massive multitap abuse to make viable.

I don't imagine that Seth is holding 11 buttons across 3 controllers while playing the game normally on the fourth controller... so how exactly is this run achieved?

I checked the rules on the category, and they weren't very specific. Is it okay to emulate these other 3 controller inputs? This seems like it would be impossible to perform by 1 person on real hardware even if you had it all... so what exactly are the rules for emulation regarding 0-exit?

The top runs aren't marked as emulated... so... if that's the case - how is the WR strat even possible?

Thanks friends!

I have added an addendum to the rules for mouse-only category "run must show mouse cursor" to make it easier to distinguish between the two categories.

I'm leaning towards rejecting this run if we don't get an explanation. Blubber, any thoughts?

Milength, I have a question about your run:

https://www.speedrun.com/wag/run/m3dwdnwz

I assume based on the way this run looks that you used an alternative method of input to mouseclicks? It's almost impossibly faster than any other known human run with the mouse, and the mouse is not shown in the video.

Thread: Update on the leaderboard times

Started by: SubStyleeSubStylee

This is a bit of a moving target. I had my milliseconds originally approved and now they were removed.

Can you just pick a time (say sub 4?) and use that for the milliseconds cutoff permanently?

Forum: Universal Paperclips

Thread: Timing Discussion: When to Start and Stop Timers

Started by: ElipsisElipsis

As it goes I see two possible choices for when to start the RTA timer.

1. When the player clicks the Universal Paperclips logo and the game loads.

or

2. When the player makes the first paperclip.

I don't have strong feelings about this one, and would like some input. It's possible that we should go with "whatever is the same thing that IGT uses" for RTA.

As far as when to stop the RTA timer, there are also two options.

1. When the "Message from the Emperor of Drift" shows up (which is also when the game gives you your "Universal Paperclips Achieved in [your IGT]" message.

or

2. When the player makes the very last paperclip to round off the 30,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000... number.

Here I feel that #1 is the better choice. #2 is problematic because - A. If the player chooses the other ending, it would totally invalidate their entire run. Which is a bit silly. B. The game doesn't provide any IGT on making the very last paperclip.

Again - seeking community input.
