Thread: Old Any% ACE category removed from leaderboards

Started by: GreenTunicGreenTunic

Since a recent discovery by Flockdjur was made allowing ACE to be achievable on console, the old Any% ACE category has been removed. Apologies to any runners that had times submitted, it was deleted to avoid confusion between the old and new ACE.

The old Any% ACE category was exclusive to Gambatte emulator and so was never really official. It was kept around mainly because it was interesting. Not to worry though! With the new ACE category comes new run possibilities to truly push LADX as low as it can go!

Any% has been split into 2 tabs with both ACE and No ACE so that runners will have a choice which route they wish to run and submit times to.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

Thread: Meme Runs rules

Started by: dragonc0dragonc0

There seems to be a run for save the guy already using any% rules so it's likely to just follow that ruleset. In terms of racing it, all participants can just agree to no ww/oob/doghouse beforehand for a longer and probably more interesting to watch race.

Thread: Looking to get started running

Started by: DeshioDeshio

Even though it's what I started on, I wouldn't recommend starting with the true any% category just because it can burn you out fast and also kinda hinders you on learning the other much longer categories. I went months without learning the main category just because it was so different to the thing I had learned first. So Any% No S+Q/WW/OoB or 100% is an awesome start point.

It isn't a legitimate trick if it cannot be performed on console or virtual console.

Thread: Implementing Unbuffered Rooster Skip in runs

Started by: HexagonerHexagoner

Well when I and a lot of the runners started, there wasn't a reliable way to buffer rooster skip so I just went straight to unbuffered. It didn't take long to get pretty consistent at it but even now it kills runs occasionally if I decide not to switch to the slow pause buffer, map buffer strat.

Thread: Question about LADX no OoB/WW/S+Q route

Started by: vlackSRvlackSR

Because completing Dungeon 4 triggers the ghost sidequest which stops you entering certain dungeons until it's completed which wastes time. So it just ends up being quicker to finish D4 last so he wont get in the way.

Thread: Suggestions for new Misc Category's

Started by: Warr90Warr90

I agree that having a category for pre-sj's "Zorlax%" would actually be really fun.

Superjumps came around not long after I started and I didn't get passed a 1:16 in the old route so it'd be cool to check it out now 😛

Thread: Poll: Allow Seashells dupe or no.

Started by: DelnDeln

Do I want to see SS duping added to a Hundo run? Yes
Do I want to see it replace the current Hundo category? No

I'd say add in another hundo category that does allow SS duping so people can post times with
it for fun. (Perhaps called All Inventory as Cransoon has mentioned) and it can even go in the Misc where Legacy should also be tbh.

So "No" to changing the current 100%.

Started by: ZorlaxSevenZorlaxSeven

Well as Deln has already somewhat started, the rules can be outlined more clearly through speedrun.com than ZSR so there's no more uncertainty on it. Rather than relying on word of mouth for some things.

Thread: Seashell Duping in 100%: Allow it or No?

Started by: ZorlaxSevenZorlaxSeven

There's all this talk about "Duplication" being banned but it literally does not say that anywhere in the rules posted and that are on ZSR. It just says to get all the heart pieces/items/seashells etc. and duplication is a way of getting them.

Even if some interpret that it is "implied" that duplication is banned it doesn't actually state it. So unless i'm missing a section of the rules (and if I am then please disregard this and show me my error) I'm not sure where this strong case of no duplication being allowed is coming from?

At the very beginning of this Z was talking about losing the essence of hundo or something and again i'm not sure what this means since we skip other sections of the run without losing any "essence". So if it's a matter of not liking it as opposed to being against the rules then this sounds very similar to super jumps and look how they are now integrated into the categories that everyone now runs happily.

Well I don't think the fact that a few people have done Hundo runs means that all the rest don't consider it a serious category. They might just not have learned it yet or maybe they prefer watching it to running it.

Just seemed weird that I was explaining how 100% was serious the other day and you kept me shooting me down saying it wasn't and now you say it is lol

"I was doing SERIOUS 100% runs before I was accepted into Californithon for No S&Q, and I always take 100% seriously. It's my favorite (real) category."

ZorlaxSeven - Last Wednesday at 6:26 PM
"Hundo is a non-serious category. (What's the difference between no. 1 and no. 2 now? 6+ minutes?) No matter how cool it is. And we're not saying that OoT hundo is the archetype for our 100%; I was saying that ZFG's logic about having "the spirit of the category" has relevance here.
The rules were decided a long time ago through SDA, if I recall.
The best description of the rules is on ZSR. There, however, is no documentation about HeartPiece duping, which was kinda (a little) decided on.
And don't get me wrong, behind the meme category that is Zorlax%, 100% is my favourite category. But that doesn't make it a "serious" one."

I'm so confused lol

Man does cransoon ever make a compelling argument about the rules, not sure what to think lol

Is this gonna be another vote thing or what's the solution here exactly?

Started by: ZorlaxSevenZorlaxSeven

I agree with most of what you are saying Choto in that it IS about going fast lol it's not about the freaking entertainment and showcasing. Do casual runs if you want to show off the game and let the speedrunners plow right through it as fast as possible.

That being said each individual seashell should be collected rather than duplicated but not 20 like the rules state. It should be all 26 seashells and then getting the sword. If the purpose is the seashells and not the Lvl 2 sword then collecting only 20 is completely defeating the purpose. So I put it out there that all 26 need to be collected for this to actually be 100%.

Started by: ZorlaxSevenZorlaxSeven

I may have found this glitch but I'm not sure if it should be implemented into the category. My reasons are my own on the matter however and whilst I don't support the whole "It needs to be entertaining and that's all that matters" spiel, I do kind of think that collecting each specific heart container/piece and seashell is important to truly 100% it. Still undecided though.

That's not to say I won't maybe do seashell duping within some other arbitrary run outside of these leaderboards for fun though 😛

Thread: Major differences from LA->LADX routes?

Started by: Warr90Warr90

Well in LA it's all about using the mushroom. It makes villa skip really easy but in my opinion rooster skip much harder. There's also another jump going to D8 which is awkward that requires mushroom buffering to get across.

You also skip the hookshot and the dungeon order is different. It goes D1, D2, D3, D4, D8, D7, D6, D5.
And there's instrument cutscene skip which is optional except for D4 instrument which you HAVE to get or the ghost will appear after completing the dungeon.
