Thread: 9-1 any% category - credit to specialkid420

Started by: DiamondcrafterADiamondcrafterA

9-1 any% sounds like a cool idea, I'm down. As for 9-1 cannonless, that's kind of getting into what I would consider to be too arbitrary, so that probably won't be added unless it really catches on.

Thread: How to record

Started by: FinnityFinnity

As was stated above, streaming through a phone/tablet is the cheapest option. If you're looking for a cheap and decent quality capture card, the GV-USB2 is a good choice also.

Thread: Why can't there be a Emulator section for New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Started by: godsdisciple23godsdisciple23

Emulation of games from the gamecube era and onwards is much less accurate and reliable than that of older console generations. For NSMBW specifically, loads don't match up with console versions, and the nature of emulators being able to modify aspects of the game (changing framerate, etc) and run input recordings is something we dislike as a community. You will find that many popular games from more modern consoles ban emulators as well, likely due to similar reasons. While I agree that more available platforms for speedrunning is generally a positive, the situation with emulation for NSMBW specifically makes banning emulators such as dolphin the best option for now. 🙂

To beat the level, you need to get the normal exit (defeat the boss)

Thread: Resets

Started by: GoudurixGoudurix

Resetting the console is fine. Also the fastest way to reset is actually to press the button on the console OpieOP

Thread: milliseconds?

Started by: RyanAluRyanAlu

It goes in as a tie on the leaderboard. Unfortunately there is no way to enable milliseconds for individual levels only, and we would like the main category leaderboards to only show seconds.

Thread: Fast Any Percent?!

Started by: Exciton97Exciton97

There's no way this will ever go on the main boards, no matter how popular it gets. It's way too arbitrary, and is literally just the same any% levels.

Thread: Max% Question

Started by: JinspirationSKJinspirationSK

world records require video footage, and must be done in a single rta segment. I don't really have any advice for recording such a run... good luck 😛

nothing will be added to this leaderboard until a run is actually completed. As for the main board, maybe if it picks up popularity...

Thread: cannoless multiplayer

Started by: Newt801Newt801

Unless it picks up popularity, this won't be added to the main leaderboard. However if you do a run, I would gladly add the category to our extensions leaderboard ( http://speedrun.com/nsmbwmemes ). 🙂

Thread: pirated game on a wii?

Started by: 127032

All runs must be done on an official disc. That being said, the game really isn't that hard to find, given how many copies it sold.

That TAS doesn't aim to complete the game without powerups, just to get the lowest score possible.

Actually, you can avoid the coins after the start of 1-2 as small mario. All it takes is an air stall right after coming out of the pipe. (Credit for video goes to DyllonStej)
